Amarillo, TX: Part 2: RV Museum

Leave a comment Standard

The next day I ventured off to Jack Sisemore’s RV Museum.  Who knew an RV Museum could be so interesting. I pretty much had the place to myself. In addition to RVs, they also have quite a few Harleys on display.

Jack Sisemore owns the oldest RV dealership in Texas, and began collecting vintage trailers, campers, and mobile homes in the 1980s. His museum, which has its own building at his dealership, displays 15 homes-away-from-home from the 1930s to the 1970s. There’s a Model T Kampcar, a VW hippie van, and the bus from the Robin Williams film RV. Jack is especially proud of the RVs he’s found in barns, some so well kept by their tidy-traveling owners that they didn’t need to be restored.


I got to step back in time and enjoy the progression of the RV industry from its inception till now. Just walk in the main showroom and tell the friendly staff you want to see the RV Museum. They will point the way. Once there, you are free to climb into the RVs and take all the pictures you want. The museum is free and is open Mon-Fri 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Saturday 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

Mr. Sisemore is to be commended for his efforts in restoring and putting these relics on display for all to enjoy. Did I mention, it’s free! Best deal in Amarillo. Loved it!
