DormCo.com Sorority College Dorm Trunk (Review & Giveaway)

Disclosure: I received a sample product to help facilitate the review.  All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


It's that time of year where kids from all over are coming home for Spring Break to visit (if we're lucky), or they've just finished up and are headed back to their colleges or universities.  If you're like me, you want to send them back with something useful, or something you know they'll love.  DormCo.com. has you covered for either, and I'll be giving my young man this gorgeous Sorority College Dorm Trunk in Espresso.


Sorority College Dorm Trunk in Espresso
from DormCo.com
The left side of the trunk has (2) Caster Wheels for Easy Mobility
The Right Side has a Study Handle (as does the front, which you can see above).

I like that this trunk has wheels.

Trunks can be heavy in and of themselves, and when you put things in them they can be downright impossible to move. The wheels on the Sorority College Dorm Trunk take away that challenge and make this trunk instantly mobile, regardless of how heavy (or not) the items are that are stored inside.

Roomy Interior
The trunk has a nice and roomy interior, measuring 29" L x 20" W x 14" High.  The inside is without compartments so your college student (or you!) can store whatever you would like.


Front Right of the Trunk
This picture shows the decorative snap strap & one of the (2) metal clasps that ssecures it (top-right).
You can also see the sturdy handle in the middle (with a purple DormCo.com tag hanging from it)
It also has two metal clasp locks on the front for securing the lid.  You can see one of them on the top, right. The buckle straps have a snap on the end that closes, but you do not have to fiddle around with the actual buckle, that is there for show/decorative purposes only (and I like it!).


Sturdy Side Handle
There is a sturdy side handle to use when you're wheeling the trunk in a vertical position, or if you just want to lift it. The covering of this truck is synthetic leather, which should hold up well against scratches, and traditional wear and tear (very important if you're in a college dorm room).


And since I'm taking pictures, here is the bottom of it.
You can see the casters on the left, the stationary legs on the right,
and the attractive detailing, complete with rivets, on the bottom.
Even the bottom of the trunk is attractive, with the riveting and leather straps.  The photo above is the bottom side of the trunk.

This Sorority College Dorm Trunk comes in many colors, and the winner gets to choose their favorite (enter the giveaway below)!  This is not all that DormCo.com has to offer.  Take a look around and you're bound to find many items that you will find useful, practical, and/or great for storage in tight spaces!!  The site is geared towards the college dorm room, but I found half a dozen items I'd love to have in my home, in just a few seconds of browsing.

You can learn more about DormCo.com by visiting their website: http://www.dormco.com

You can also follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Pinterest.

One lucky winner gets a trunk just like the one reviewed, in the color of their choice.

    My daughter has a cheap trunk with no wheels for college, and I dread lugging all her stuff back home for the summer! Maybe I'll win this terrific new one!

    Thanks for stopping by and linking up with my NO RULES Weekend Blog Party :)) Hope you have a good one!

  7. That's an absolutely lovely trunk! I don't even own anything like that for myself.

  8. I didn't notice in your review, but is there a way to lock it? I was always concerned about stuff getting stolen when I lived in a dorm.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Great point, Elisebet!!

      It doesn't come with a lock, but the description says that two padlocks can be used to lock it. It looks to me though, that the holes (under each latch clip) have a smaller size than a standard padlock, so I believe you'd have to get the downsize.
