FMCA plate is crap

Recommended Posts

They must have a different vendor.  My plaque has been on two MHs for over 10 years, still looks fine.  The pic above looks like a cheap stick on, the old ones are not stick ons.

From what I understand the vendor did change a couple of years ago from the long-time vendor to someone new.

You're correct.  I don't use my aluminum anymore, but I do use the hard plastic & its my understanding that you can order it.

So, it appears that the older members have a good plaque (Egg).  No one seems to care that the new members are not provided something that they can proudly display.  FMCA is a great group...why is this issue so tough to resolve?

I joined about 4-5 years ago when the previous vendor was supplying the plaques. The one I was sent was a flat plastic plaque with a vinyl sticker applied to it, but there was an order form if I wanted to order a molded plastic one which looked just like the older aluminum ones. I did that and still have the molded one on the rear of the coach. On the front I had them make another vinyl sticker without the plastic backing, and then just stuck it on the front in the spot for a second license plate.

Can't figure out why we went to a new vendor if they cannot supply what members want with good quality.

Go to the above site to order new plates, you will have to log into your fmca account to make the order. Not hard to do, the order will appear backordered, as they are made after you order, can't keep a spare set around for every member. Sorry yours were bad!

What's the point of spending $25 to order another plate of the same design that will fail in six months?  I called FMCA Membership.  They confirmed that if I ordered a replacement set, it would be the same sticker on a plastic plate that failed the first time.

Pete5016.

I don't know who told you $25....Are you a FMCA member?  The cost for a replacement plastic egg & window sticker is $16 !!!

I just stumbled onto this topic, and I must agree, the FMCA member number egg with vinyl sticker [whether or not it peels off] appears to be cheaply made, which it is. When I originally joined FMCA the first thing I did after receiving my membership package, with the less than stellar looking FMCA member number eggs, was to order the injection molded raised number oval egg set. I am so glad I did, as these injection molded plates do not look as though they were purchased at a dollar store bargain bin. It is sad FMCA membership department does not listen carefully to its membership base, especially the newest members amongst us. The only sure way to grow your member base is by listening. If it is a matter of money, then simply charge accordingly the first year of membership, and include FMCA injection molded raised member number egg, doing away the bargain basement vinyl sticker version. Those are my two cents...

My number will not get any worse as it is back in package as it is unworthy of display

My number is ok.  But my current motorhome does not have a ladder.  I went to a print shop and had them make a decal.
