Members of FMCA, a Cincinnati-based organization for RV owners, will head to Georgia in mid-March for the organization’s four-day 97th International Convention and RV Expo, which has been dubbed “Southern Charm.”
A small city on wheels will take shape as the owners of more than 2,500 RVs converge on the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter, March 15-18, according to FMCA.
The event will include more than 100 educational sessions aimed at helping RV owners glean more enjoyment from their homes on wheels, according to the organization. RV experts will conduct seminars on topics ranging from tire maintenance, technology, and safe driving to microwave-convection cooking and RV trips to Alaska.
Attendees also will be able to tour RVs of all types, sizes, and price ranges as part of the RV showcase at the event. Other activities will include games and daytime and evening entertainment, including a performance by Southern humorist/speaker Jeanne Robertson and live music spanning the decades.
