Covered Wagons-Embrace the Westward Spirit!
Greetings!    
    Nothing typifies the pioneering spirit and the migration west more than the covered wagon. Prairie Schooners got their nickname from 
Prairie Schooner Covered Wagon their white "sails" or canvas covers as they traveled across the prairie. Although this style of wagon may come to mind when someone says covered wagons, there are many different wagons that fall into this category. Any wagon with a canvas cover-such as the Army Wagon, Conestoga Wagon, Emigrant's Wagon or even the Sheepwagon-could be classified as a covered wagon. This past year, we custom built two "Prairie Schooners", each to be displayed at historic sites in California.
    In addition to historic sites, covered wagons make great displays for businesses, ranches and city visitor centers. These wagons attract attention and the cover provides the perfect "canvas" for advertising and signage.
     Just like the pioneers of old, you can convert a standard farm wagon or box wagon into a covered wagon for display. Simply use our Wagon Bows and Canvas Cover listed below. See SALE ITEMS below.
Sincerely,
Doug Hansen
