Klinger Kawasaki & Ski-Doo in Walton must be doing something right. They received the 2001 Kawasaki ATV Dealer of the Year award for the East coast, outselling dealers from Maine to Virginia. What an honor!!! What began as a small family operation on Freer Hollow Road in Walton in 1986 that sold between 30-50 units a year, has grown into an award-winning dealership that sold more ATVs in 2001 than any Kawasaki dealer on the entire East Coast.
Not stopping there, Arthur & Barbara Klinger and daughter, Kathy Shelton, traveled to the Annual Bombardier (Ski-Doo) Conference in Reno, Nevada to receive the 2002 District Ski-Doo Snowmobile Dealer of the Year!!! They were also recently Gold Certified by Bombardier as being an outstanding dealership (not an easy Certification to receive).
Two top awards in just a few months has given this family business new incentive to excel. They have always worked hard to improve service and to treat their customers with respect. Moving into the heart of downtown Walton in 1999 gave them the opportunity to grow. New renovations at the store and the constant influx of new products makes their store a great place to visit.
