This July we celebrate 10 years! From all of us, a simple thank you to our customers and our community. Our pledge from day one has been to treat our customers with honesty, fair pricing and no gimmick sales. You will never feel any pressure to buy, and our customers appreciate our laid back, personal approach. This commitment to our customers has helped us to become a premier RV and outdoor dealership in the area.
10 years ago, Bob Reeder purchased Bonner Cycle and Bonner Sports merging the two into Bonner Sports Inc. Bonner Cycle was a small business with a long history in Avis specializing in bicycles, powersports, and power equipment. Our goal was to expand the business and within a year we successfully secured a dealership for Dutchmen travel trailers. During that same time period we sought the expertise of Butch Kimball to handle our RV service work. Butch is well-known and respected for his RV experience and owned Kimball RV Service. Soon discussion started on expanding Bonner Sports into the Kimball RV Service facility. In four short months Bonner Sports officially became Bonner Sports & RV, and moved to its current location on Route 44 in Pine Creek Valley, with 8 Dutchmen travel trailers and 6 employees.
In the following years Bonner Sports & RV experienced phenomenal growth and continued to add manufacturers like Coachmen, Crossroads, Forest River, and KZ. During one of the worst economic downturns in the RV industry, Bonner Sports & RV tripled their sales in those first few years. Today we stock over 50 new and used RVs with a staff of 18 employees. We have the area’s largest selection of RVs; from motorhomes, 5th wheels, travel trailers, toy haulers, and pop-ups.
Starting in 2012 we focused on the successful growth of our powesports business offering a large selection of used ATVs, UTVs, motorcycles, golf carts and snowmobiles. To complement our commitment to outdoor fun we maintained Giant Bicycles and Emotion Kayaks.
Our commitment is consistency while always watching our markets for new ways to change or expand our products. Whether it’s purchasing your 1st RV, trading in your snowmobile for a newer model or buying a Giant Bicycle to enjoy the rail trail, our team is here to help you make the most of your time outdoors. Adventure starts with Bonner Sports & RV!
