Prairie Schooner

The Prairie Schooner that transported many pioneers and their possessions across the country, was the result of adaptations to the heavier Conestoga, which proved to be too heavy for emigrants to take across the mountains as they moved westward. Our traditional Prairie Schooner covered wagon has ribbed sides and sloped ends reiminiscent of the vintage wagon style used on the Oregon Trail, California Gold Rush and Oklahoma Land Rush. Popular with museums representing the Oregon Trail, these covered wagons are also referred to as emigrant's wagons or pioneer wagons.
