Jack Sisemore Traveland RV Museum

Panhandle Plains

Long before today's posh gas guzzling RVs hit the road, laden with every convenience right down to the satellite dish, intrepid Americans looking for adventure had much simpler vehicles. This museum at Jack Sisemore's Traveland RV dealership has trailers and RVs from the 1930s to the 1970s, a time when entertainment meant watching Dad hit his head on the pint-sized door frame.
