Denmark Museum or Bust

Over 20 years ago, Hansen Wheel & Wagon Shop did their first International shipment with a covered wagon destined for Denmark. Since then, we've shipped wagons and products to Canada, France, Norway, Ireland, Germany, Japan, England, Austrailia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and Mexico. We are always amazed at the world-wide interest that there is in the history of the American West.

Next step is to incorporate all the functionality and styling of the original chuckwagons with a custom chuck box and water barrel along with optional belly box, tool box, jockey box, panty and pan boot.
