Johnnie Walker RV is proud to have helped support the 43rd annual “Jeep Club Jamboree,” Sand Wars racing event that took place President’s Day weekend (February 13-15, 2016) at Dumont Sand Dunes!
The annual event, which attracts truck, Jeep, and side-by-side (UTV) racers from Nevada, California, Arizona, Washington and Utah, has become a tradition for thousands of off-road enthusiasts. As a lead sponsor, Johnnie Walker RV supported the Las Vegas Jeep Club and K&T performance, the event’s organizers, with the transportation of race equipment and track maintenance throughout the weekend.
The Sand Wars event offered a weekend packed full of racing fun. On Saturday, trucks, Jeeps and side-by-sides faced off in hill climb races, also known as hill drags. Sunday's race day included 100yd sand drag races.
“This year’s event was definitely one for the books!” said Shawn Thompson, Jamboree Director of the Las Vegas Jeep Club. “We are appreciative that Johnnie Walker RV was willing to lend a hand in our efforts this year."
Several long time Johnnie Walker RV employees, including the company's service manager, Ken Allen, generally attend and/or participate in the racing event every year.
A spectacle in the desert, Dumont Sand Dunes is a great weekend destination for Las Vegas RVers. We definitely recommend adding Dumont to your list!

March 25, 2015 marked a very momentous occasion for the Las Vegas-based, family owned and operated RV Dealer, Johnnie Walker RV. The original location, a 48-year-old renovated mobile home which created served thousands of happy campers through the years, was demolished to make way for the new flagship facility, or "Camping Lodge," as it has been dubbed.
The original facility was originally facility was assembled by John L. “Johnnie” Walker and his father a few years after the company’s founding in 1963. Through the years, this mobile home served as the company’s primary location. All RV paperwork and pickups from any of the dealership’s three locations took place there; thus, every Johnnie Walker RV customer touched this location at some point in doing business with the company.
As the mobile home aged, maintenance issues became a recurring problem. For example, during infrequent rainy days in Las Vegas, it would also rain inside the old mobile home! But despite the creaky floors, narrow hallways, and low lighting among other deficiencies, there was still something special - a nostalgic “homey” feeling - that customers would sense when walking down the old hallway in the building.
Countless memories were made during Johnnie Walker RV’s time at the old structure. Emotions ran high on demolition day for many JWRV employees, family, friends, and all those who were able to attend. Johnnie, his son and JWRV President, John “West,” and his grandson and JWRV Marketing Director, Michael, were able to play a part in the historic demolition event, with Johnnie making the first blow to the building with the backhoe.
As of April 2015, the new state-of-the-art Johnnie Walker RV “Camping Lodge” is now operational, and capable of serving RV enthusiasts in a host of new ways. The memory of the old structure, and the roots of where Johnnie Walker RV was originally founded, will always remain in the hearts of Johnnie Walker RV friends and family.
If you are intrigued by this story, please stop by the new “Camping Lodge” at 3700 Boulder Hwy. Las Vegas, NV 89121.

Tim and Paula thank you for this incredibly nice review!
"We have recently purchased our 1st 5th wheel. After shopping around, we found the exact model we had been looking for. Our experience was outstanding! We have never seen such a happy, helpful, friendly staff! Between the sales people, the parts department and the mechanics, we did not want to leave! One of the most remarkable services they provide is the two day training and getting acquainted with the RV. This is one that I have never heard of before. It is easy to see why Johnnie Walker RV is #1! Thank you again for making our experience memorable! We have not stopped bragging about your sales staff and the exceptional customer service! You guys have gone over and beyond what our expectations would have ever been! You knocked it out of the park!!"
