RV Museum Opens In Amarillo

Amarillo, Texas RV dealer Jack Sisemore Traveland recently opened a 7,000 square foot museum to house fifteen classic travel trailers and motor homes they’ve restored and collected over the past 25 years. Several of the RVs on display have some sort of historic significance, including the 1948 Flxible Clipper driven by actor Jeff Daniels in the 2006 movie RV.

Others include the very first Itasca motor home ever built and the oldest Fleetwood travel trailer known to exist. There’s a nice range of RVs here, ranging from a 1946 Kit teardrop to a 1974 Winnebago. All told, the museum consists of trailers and motor homes from the 1930’s through the 1970’s.

According to the Amarillo Globe-News, the museum welcomed over 400 visitors in just the first week. Admission to the museum is free, and is located on the grounds of Jack Sisemore Traveland, 4341 Canyon Drive, Amarillo, TX, which is about 3 miles south of Route 66 (6th Ave.) near the Georgia Street/I-27 interchange.  Hours are Monday-Saturday, 9am-5pm.

  1. As fulltime RV’ers, I am looking forward to visiting your museum the next time we are passing through Amarillo. Please check-out the Chamber’s “RV’ing Route 66” link on our homepage at http://www.visit66.com. Thanks.

  2. We are located in Wills Point, TX just three miles east of Lake Tawakoni State Park, where there is ‘lots of camping going on.” We live down the street from a lady who does great post cards that you might be interested in if you do not already know about her. This is her web site: http://www.vintagetraveltrailerart.com
    Take a look and see if this would be a great addition to your museum. Enjoyed hearing about it on local news report this evening.
