What We Do
The purpose of the Florida RV Trade Association is to lead, educate, promote, and protect the general welfare of the RV Industry in Florida.
The FRVTA is a non-profit organization classified by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a 501-(C) 6. The Association was established in 1979. Its leadership direction comes from a membership-elected volunteer Board of Directors while programs and services are offered by a dedicated full-time staff. The Association owns its business location referred to as the State Office.
Regional chapters located within the state of Florida are arranged geographically to better serve the membership. Each region has member elected volunteers that are referred to as Regional Officers that assist in the operation of their region. The regions sponsor RV shows to help members promote their products at the local levels. These RV shows are designed to introduce the public to the RV lifestyle. These shows draw an annual attendance of over 100,000 visitors where the latest in state-of-the-art RV technology, streamline designs, parts and accessories are displayed. Members also have the option to participate in local regional chapter meetings that generally take place monthly. At these meetings networking and a free exchange of ideas are encouraged.
Our membership has grown to more than 500 businesses comprised of RV Campgrounds and Resorts, licensed Florida RV Dealers, RV Manufacturers, Finance and Insurance Companies, Service and Suppliers representing hundreds of employees. Our mascot is a pelican named “Roadie”. He was selected to be the official mascot because of his knowledge of the state of Florida and many years of RV experience. Roadie can be found at some of the FRVTA Shows.
