The problem centers on a law passed by the Kansas legislature back in 2002, the same year that the FMCA convention in the Sunflower State drew in 4,700 rigs. That law, passed to massage the feelings of Kansas RV dealers, specifies that no out-of-state vendor may sell in Kansas at a truck or RV show unless they buy a license. Not only can't RVs be sold, neither can anything else. FMCA officials say that's just too much.
Kansas State Fairgrounds folks were hoping something could be done to ease up the law and appease both Kansas RV dealers and the FMCA. But the stalemate never budged, and now the FMCA says they'll be going to Wyoming for their big rally in 2013, which the state fairgrounds hoped would be theirs instead.
It would appear that the "goose egg" logo for the FMCA has become Kansas' own goose egg in its own right.
