Footlocker, Steamer Trunk, Dorm Trunk or Camp Trunk

Trunks…come with lots of names and sizes. Footlockers were named because large trunks were issued to store soldiers’ belongings. These large trunks were stored at the foot of each soldier’s bed…hence the name ‘Footlocker’.  Steamer trunks were named because the trunks were a useful, virtually indestructible container to ship across the ocean.  Today, these trunks, no matter what you call them, are still used for storage, to transport your belongings and may even double as a convenient table. Many college students still use these trunks for their college dorm rooms…bring your belongings and then use the trunk as a table, chair or whatever is needed in the dorm room. Built in America, Rhino Armor is a premier trunk manufacturer:

  • Entire frame and interior constructed of smooth 3/8″ premium grade Baltic Birch hardwood plywood throughout. No paper or plastic lining anywhere. Therefore, you’ll never have a problem with peeling or tearing.·  The Rhino Armor™  Cordura sheathing ensures that Rhino Armor Trunks™ have the most durable exterior available in the trunk industry.
  • 18 stock colors + thousands of other colors and patterns when ordered in quantity. Match your decor or mood!
  • Strong hand-crafted construction using both old world trunk making skills and advanced aviation rivet technology. Steel aircraft rivets are used to ensure durability.
  • Heavy duty proprietary nickel plated steel latches and hardware.

Rhino Armor trunks are offered with free shipping.  My suggestion is to purchase the set of removable wheels (very easy to attach) to make your trunk easy to move around, even when loaded!

    It’s awesome to see that the starting site owners are once again aiming at bringing a more rounded info rather than just aiming on worthless and junky articles. Like this the strengths of individual article are more feasable to be exposed.

    My Metal Steamer Trunk was stolen from the former apartment where I lived and I am searching for a replacement. At first, the owner agreed to pay $100.00 (towards a replacement-I took him at his word-second mistake). Currently, he denies ever having said words to that effect. So,since it was actually the caretakers who did the theft, I need the trunk, (and can’t get it back), so I am trying to review my options with some numbers, that can be verified. There seems to be very little in the Marketplace in the way of “the good old trunk”, so I am now hunting.I obviusly have to guess at measurements: 50inches long X 30inches wide X30inches high. I could guantee the Height and Width, if I was permitted to enter the building, but I have not even asked. (You do not want to hear the whole story.)A prompt reply would be appreciated! THANKS!

    Shoe racks offer a convenient means of storage for those of us who have numerous pairs of shoes. The difficulty that many have with the large quantities of shoes, due to the differing footwear requirements of the family unit, is the fact of storage. Taking into account their unusual shape, as well as buckles and heels, they are inherently difficult to store in standard drawers and cupboards, which is why the advent of the shoe rack has alleviated many of these problems.:
