We’re classic GMC owners and enthusiasts!GMC Eastern States is an affiliated chapter of the Family Motor Coach Association. Members of GMCES are dedicated to continuing and building on the legacy of the GMC MotorHome as a recreational vehicle for the ages.
If you’re looking for a motorhome that offers timeless style and design, it can be found in the GMC motorhome. If you’d like an RV that is sized right, not too big and not too small, the GMC coach is it. If you want a boulevard-like riding and handling experience, the GMC has it. If you want a vehicle ready to be customized to fit your personality, a GMC is waiting somewhere for you. Or, if you’re looking for friends who are also proud owners of these classic RVs, there are GMC owners eager to meet you and share their experiences with you. Just like the vehicles we own, GMCES is many things to many people.
FMCA’s 88th Family Reunion and Motorhome Showcase will take place Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, June 19 through 22, 2013, at CAM-PLEX in Gillette, Wyoming.
FMCA's Gillette 2013 Family Reunion and Motorhome Showcase
The 2013 event represents the association’s first-ever visit to Gillette for an international event. This Family Reunion will be especially significant, as it will mark the culmination of the association's 50th anniversary celebration. FMCA was founded by a group of "house car" owners who gathered in Hinckley, Maine, in July 1963.
CAM-PLEX is especially well-suited for the 2013 event. The 1,100-acre convention, exhibition, and performing arts center offers state-of-the-art multipurpose facilities as well as six separate RV park venues encompassing 1,730 sites.
