Footlocker with Tray
Smart College Purchase!
As a teenager in college, this purchase has been one of my greatest dorm room investments.
The trunk was not only more affordable than others that I was considering, but also happened to look nicer as well. I love the fact that it comes in so many different color choices. I chose the purple trunk and it goes perfectly with all my other dorm decorations.
It is very sturdy but still light enough (when empty) to carry it wherever you need to (in my case, out of the car and up into the dorm room). It comes with a key for the lock, but I'm glad I can also use a combination lock on it for extra security.
The tray is made of strong material and the lining is just as beautiful as the outside. I use the tray for keeping my computer, external hard drive, graphics tablet, and other electronics safe and secure when I am away and not using them. The space below has perfect storage space for other items as well, such as extra bedding or other important items. It could be used to house jewelry, important documents, etc. as well.
I am very pleased with this purchase and look forward to using it many years in the future!

Not a good product!
I purchased this trunk for my daughter's first year of camp, and unfortunately after only one week at camp the trunk came home ruined. It's of poor quality to begin with: the black leather trim tears and snags easily, the screws eventually break through to the inside, and the inside lining rips/tears. The worst part is the lid flops all the way back which bends the hinges so that it does not close properly (it takes a lot of manipulating to get it closed at all). We even drove my daughter to camp so it was handled very little...I would hate to see what it would look like if it was transported to a camp via bus or plane. It's worth it to buy a better quality trunk, especially if it's for camp purposes.

I was happy to find a good quality trunk for my daughter to take to camp and not have to spent $150. She loves the purple color and the tray inside.

Need a trunk for a camper this summer? This is a fantastic trunk/footlocker that is great for storage and can be used in many different ways - as a footlocker for a child/teenager going off to camp, extra storage in a basement and/or garage or really any room in the house where additional storage capacity is needed.
It comes in a variety of colors - the pink and purple are great for the girls and the orange and silver are fun choices for the boys in your life!
