More Wandertec Bongo Trailers On The Way

by Josh Lipton

It’s been a hectic month at Wandertec. We’re getting our new building ready to move into, working on several new Wandertec products for our Wandertec BONGO Trailer trailer, and hustling to keep up production on our current offerings. This week we’ve been working on a new batch of trailer frames, which we make right here in Flagstaff. After a couple days of cutting, bending, drilling and filing, the pieces are all ready for welding. This is what they look like before they meet Stuart.
