Monacos in Motion is an international chapter of the Family Motor Coach Association. Although they are not regionally focused, they have members from all over the United States and Canada. FMCA membership and ownership of Monaco motorized brand models manufactured by Monaco Coach Corporation, Royale Coach, coaches manufactured by Executive Industries and all Monaco coaches manufactured prior to 1992 can be members. Annual dues are $15.00 and there is a one-time initiation fee of $25.00.
Ok, so what does belonging to Monaco’s in Motion actually mean? What do they do? Their members design and lead caravans for other members to explore various parts of North America. A caravan will generally consist of fifteen coaches and lasts two to four weeks with approximately four to eight planned stops. Past caravans have included stopping at Christmas light displays in Tennessee, The Natchez Trace and a Whole Lot More, Glaciers to Geysers, California Dreaming, and many more that you can see on their website under the "past caravans" tab.
The next caravan they have planned is to Chicago, and is appropriately titled "The Wonderful World of Navistar – Plus!" If you are interested in joining up with them, there is a link to fill out an application and email for more information. Sounds like this one is going to be pretty fun!
On the Monacos in Motion website they have a Wall of Honor tab, and we thought this was a lot of fun! It showcases everyone in the club who has led or co-led a caravan. Who knows, maybe one day we’ll see your name on the Wall of Honor!
If you are already a part of this fun club or if you choose to join, be sure to post some pictures of your caravan adventures to our RV Country Facebook wall! You know how we love seeing all the amazing places you travel!
