“The Spirit of Wyoming” Recap

Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) held its 103rd International Convention & RV Expo, nicknamed The Spirit of Wyoming, on July 7-10, 2021. The event was held at CAM-PLEX Multi-Event Facilities in Gillette, Wyoming. It was the third time FMCA has held a convention in Gillette, and the fourth time in the state of Wyoming (FMCA’s summer convention was held in Laramie, Wyoming in 1992). 


From the moment the first RVs started to arrive on-site until departure day, our attendees could definitely feel the “Spirit of  Wyoming” all around them. The weather was beautiful, with blue skies, very few clouds, and warm weather ranging from the mid 80’s-90’s most of the week. Thankfully attendees avoided a thunderstorm during the second night of evening entertainment still got to enjoy Three Dog Night.

From the educational seminars and crafts to the on-site RV displays and exhibitor halls, there was plenty of activities for everyone. The daytime and evening entertainment was very popular among the attendees too. 

Each day of the convention is filled with seminars on topics ranging from technical product guides to trip planning, RV cooking, or working from the road.
FMCA raised $2,400  for the Y.E.S House Foundation, a local Gillette charity during the Magic Mile walkathon.
Attendees enjoyed Grammy nominated band, Three Dog Night, on night two of evening entertainment. They previewed a new song from their upcoming album and got everyone on their feet during the hit, “Joy to the World”.
RV shoppers had a selection of coaches to tour all week long with displays from some of the industry’s leading RV manufacturers.
