The Thompson family has been in the auto and RV business since the 1950s. Thompson Bros. opened in 1953 selling Hudson and Nash automobliles. The gradual shift from autos to RVs began in the 60's when Sid Thompson became the local dealer for Aloha travel trailers. This was a natural fit for the family, as they spent most of their leisure time camping and picnicking in the mountains of Eastern Oregon. As Sid retired in 1973 Bob Thompson took up the tradition with a used car lot on Southgate Ave. In 1976, along with his new wife Carolyn, Bob added six Nomad trailers to the car business. Eventually the trailer business took center stage with the addition of the locally built Prowler line of trailers and fifth wheels. The latest change in the business occured with the move to the present location and the addition of a 16,000 square foot showroom and office at 1201 Southgate Ave. As we have progressed into the 21st century, the next generation, Burton and Corrin have taken over a larger portion of the day to day operatons.
