Our Dealership From 1967 To Now
J&M Camper Sales was founded in 1967 by Ron and Ernestine Stoddard with 2 slide in truck campers. The original location on Townsend Road in Augusta was quickly out grown and in 1971 had to be relocated to its current location on Civic Center Drive in Augusta.
Since the relocation the dealership has grown from a 1,300 square foot building to a 7,500 square foot dealership on 10 acres.
In 1967 when the dealership was founded The Stoddard’s son Jeff was just 4 years old. From that time Jeff was always helping dad fix campers and snowmobiles as well a cleaning campers and prepping them for sale. In 1981 Jeff joined the dealership full time as a service technician and quickly moved up to service manager.
