Best possible conveyance across America
The Conestoga wagon was built with its floor curved upward to prevent the contents from tipping and shifting. The average Conestoga wagon was 18 feet long, 11 feet high, and 4 feet in width. It could carry up to 12,000 pounds (5,400 kg)8 of cargo. The seams in the body of the wagon were stuffed with tar to protect them from leaking while crossing rivers. Also for protection against bad weather, stretched across the wagon was a tough, white canvas cover. The frame and suspension were made of wood, and the wheels were often iron-rimmed for greater durability. Water barrels built on the side of the wagon held water, and toolboxes held tools needed for repair on the wagon. Also, the feed box on the back of the wagon was used to feed the horses
The Conestoga Wagon counts as a pool of 2 Resource Points and 3 Preparedness Points.
The Wagon is durable, and can easily be used for temporary shelter or even converted into more permanent shelter once a settler’s destination has been reached
