revisions 1 to15 and then from 18 to19. Basically I want to skip revision 16,17 and 20.

Yeah, I don't think you can specify multiple revision ranges like that. How about:

svnadmin dump -r 1:15 sandbox > sandbox-dumpfile
svnadmin dump -r 18:19 sandbox >> sandbox-dumpfile

I'm not sure if that yields a legal dumpfile. If not, try:

svnadmin dump -r 1:15 sandbox > sandbox-dumpfile
svnadmin dump -r 18:19 sandbox > sandbox-dumpfile2

Then when it comes time to load, load the first file, then the second.
