Chuck Wagon

The Chuckwagon the "Mothership of Trail Drives" was a sturdy built vehicle that carried supplies and bed rolls for up to ten men on a cattle drive. Cattle baron Charles Goodnight of Texas has the credit for the design of the chuck wagon. In 1860 he rebuilt his chuck wagon from an Army Surplus wagon because of its durable iron axles. Werner Wagon Works still offers this option with the authentic look of wood hubs and roller bearing inserts.
