Imagine not needing two people to transport the fully-packed summer camp footlocker to and from the car or worse all the way to the bunk. Thanks to the newly patented Wheel Away™ System from Everything Summer Camp, the dream is a reality! The Wheel Away™ System is a revolutionary solution for summer campers who have struggled and dragged their footlockers year after year. A simple steel bracket is attached to the trunk that does not change the height of the footlocker. The wheels are instantly popped on. They remove just as easily with a simple tug. Even better is the fact that the wheels pop on and off without the use of tool. These large, 4" PVC wheels can handle any rough camp terrain. Once in the cabin take the wheels and store them away until it’s time to head home. Slide your footlocker under the bunk or place it at the foot of your bed. Kids with footlockers loaded up for a lengthy stay at camp will really appreciate the Wheel Away™ System. We even include a cinch sack for safely storing your wheels until it’s time to pack up.
Please note: The footlocker shown is not included. The Wheel Away System includes the bracket, a set of wheels, and a cinch sack. The Wheel Away System only works on C&N Footlockers.

My daughter in law asked me to repair a broken wheel hub on her daughter’s camp trunk. She said the wheel kept falling off. When I inspected it, I saw that the bushing that holds the wheel was held onto the system’s framework with just two tiny spot welds.
So the bushing had broken loose & was lost.
The easiest repair for me was to order a new one from you. Replacement took about 15 minutes.
The product is a worthwhile addition for dragging a loaded camp trunk around, but the tiny welds are inefficient and seem still vulnerable, given the weight they need to support. If it were up to me, I would’ve taken it to a local welder & had the replacement’s hubs properly welded. The product works, it is just very flimsy.

My daughter used her trunk for the first time this past week. The bracket for the wheel away system broke the first day, so we can now only attach a wheel to one side. The other wheel just slips out of the bracket. This trunk is good quality, but it is HEAVY, and the wheels are a must. (My husband and I had to carry the trunk together without them.) Very disappointed that the wheel away system broke so quickly. I have contacted customer service for a replacement, but have not yet heard back.

Trunk handle broke offf ask taking my 8 year old to camp. The picture on the trunk started to come up and was not flat. I purchase one for my son a few years ago and it was gorgeous and industructable. This trunk when i grabbed the handle it popped off and it looked like phot to paper was pasted on the outside and if i set a glass on it it would leave a mark. Highly disatrified and would like to return the trunk.

Wheel Away System
This year was my daughter's first ever sleepaway camp, so I bought her her first trunk (with the wheels already installed) The trunk is heavy on its own, and I am a single mom that had to carry it by myself, so I bought this one because of the wheels (even though it cost more). I packed her trunk put the wheels on (they were kind of wobbly but I figure it was normal. I pulled it and the wheels started coming off. I was running late so I just kept putting them back on. When I pulled it from the car and pulled it when we got to camp one of the wheels bended. I fixed it the best I could..... I picked up my daugther yesterday, and now both wheels are bended, and it can't be pulled anymore. I wouldn't waste the extra money if I was you. My daugther is going back for another session in 3 weeks, and now I have to figure out how I am going to move the trunk....(on the positive side, the actual trunk made it through in pretty good shape)
