The C&N Black Trim Happy Camper Traditional Steel Footlocker Trunk
Not just for looks, this trunk provides a roomy interior that’s sized the same as our most popular Happy Camper Trunk. Pack and transport your camp gear, apparel, and other supplies in style with this footlocker.

Perfect for most camps, the Happy Camper is sized appropriately to provide a roomy interior to pack enough clean clothes for a couple weeks. Outside the camp season, your camp trunk makes an attractive addition to your bedroom! Store seasonal clothing, valuables and keepsakes, or just keep your camping gear inside your trunk until the next camp season arrives!



We stand behind and on top of our footlockers.
Why not go with a cheaper option like some rolling luggage or a plastic storage bin for that matter? One reason why is that a C&N Trunk is more than just a container for your child's camping gear. It’s a symbol of the summer camp experience—a tangible reminder of the memories made and friendships formed. It’s an investment that will continue serving your child far into the future. In fact, the trunk YOUR child takes to summer camp could very well be the trunk THEIR child takes to summer camp.

Constructed with more than just a classy look in mind, this trunk is produced with pure craftsmanship and plated with our traditional steel exterior so you can rest assured that the Black Trim Happy Camper will hold its own against the rugged world of summer camp year after year. Sturdy enough to use as a table, bench, or stepstool, this trunk functions as much more than just storage space. Campers also use their trunks as makeshift dressers, as they tend to ‘live out of’ them throughout their summer stay.

Camp expert and co-author of ‘The Summer Camp Handbook’, Dr. Christopher Thurber had this to say on the topic camp trunks: “You want something really sturdy, not the budget trunk you might get at a big box…store, but something you stand on because that’s what kids will do at camp and they don’t want to fall through.” Our trunks can withstand 800 pounds of pressure!

Built of a solid 3/8”, cabinet-grade plywood, we armor our trunks in steel and dress them in nickel-plated hardware including four crush-proof corners and a slew of clamps to provide structural integrity. Other trunk hardware includes the two basic wire loop latches that secure the lid to the base, the center handle and latch, the two double-wide side handles, two back hinges, and the lid stay on the right side which keeps the lid from falling too far back and damaging your trunk or falling down too fast and hurting your hand.

Outside the camp season, this camp trunk makes a cool addition to a bedroom! Store seasonal clothing, valuables, and keepsakes until the next camp season comes around!

Like memories of camp, this trunk will last many years into the future for your child to look back on with nostalgia, bring to dorm rooms, first apartments, new homes, and eventually pass on to their children. Our trunks are an investment that your family can use for generations to come…




Rust Belt Gif

Traditional U.S. Steel
Our trunks boast a steel-clad protective exterior sourced from the historic Rust Belt of western Pennsylvania—a community that was forged around the mighty steel mills of the early 1900s. Our traditional steel exteriors are far more resilient than the vinyl or fabric coverings found on other trunks made today. Yes, steel costs more to make, but our 35 years of experience has shown us that steel is best.

You’ll get the most out of your camp trunk with our exclusive trunk accessories like the Wheel Away System, the LidMate Organizer, the Glide & Go Tray, and more. We’re happy to install these pieces here in our factory or they can always be added onto your trunk at home with ease. Check out our trunk accessories by clicking here.

Weak hinges

Unfortunately one of the hinges broke while my daughter was away at camp which was extremely disheartening and made pickup quite awkward.

Impressive Response Time and Quality

Ordered a custom Maroon and Black foot locker for my son who will be joining the Fightin' Texas Aggie Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M University this weekend. The footlocker looks great. The time from order placement to receiving the footlocker was 5 days. I'm so impressed. Great job!!
Gig'Em Aggies!

Good trunk... fit and finish could be better

This was the most highly rated trunk from the camp my child was going to. And It was really nice to see the trunk show up in a lot of the pictures of the camp. When I got the trunk it was nicely manufactured. I was disappointed to see that the snaps of the TagAlong Trunk Duffle weren't installed already even though they were purchased at the same time (and linked in the order). Also, the plastic tray for the inside doesn't quite fit inside. Every time the trunk is opened the tray gets picked up by the lid. You need to either pull it down or it falls while you have it open. I am not sure what to do about it.

Thank you for your feedback on the Happy Camper Steel Footlocker Trunk. We appreciate your positive comments about the trunk's manufacturing quality and its visibility in camp pictures. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the installation of the snaps for the TagAlong Trunk Duffle. Additionally, we recommend adjusting the placement of the plastic tray to ensure it stays in place when opening the trunk. Please contact our customer service team at 1-800-535-2057 or Your feedback is important to us as we strive to improve our products based on customer experiences.

Camp Trunk Buying Guide

A lot summer camps hail the footlocker trunk as their preferred packing container. But what size will suit your camper best, specific to his or her camp stay? You’ll want to consider a few different factors before making your decision.

First, get the right bed height for the bunks at camp. You might be able to find this on your camp information packet but, if not, don’t be afraid to call up the camp for answers. Generally trunks under 14” work for most camps.

Second, consider the amount of camp clothing, gear, and supplies you need to pack. Just because your child is going to camp for three weeks doesn’t mean you need to pack clothes for three weeks, many camps have laundry service. Follow your camp’s packing list.

Third, consider what size clothing you’re trying to pack. After all, a dozen Youth Small Tees won’t eat up as much space as a dozen Adult Larges. The lists above will give you a good idea of what can fit inside each of our trunks. We used a combination of Youth Large and Adult Small clothing to create the lists. Our camp trunks are all 32” long and 18” wide, the only difference is in the height of trunks.


We designed with size in mind! Our smallest trunk means that it costs the least and weighs the least. It also means that it’s the least expense when travelling on airlines. Most campers that use this trunk attend a camp with very low bed heights or consistently travel to camp via plane.

Happy Camper

By far the most popular of our camp trunks, the Happy Camper is the safest choice. Why? Because it works! Sized right for pretty much any camp, the Happy Camper can do no wrong. 75% of our footlocker sales are Happy Campers. It’s also the model for our latest creation, Designer Trunks, which are made with the same size and design of the Happy Camper.


If your camp offers the available space, then the UnderGrad is a great size trunk for you. This trunk fits a bit more gear than the Happy Camper. The additional packing space provides for a little wiggle-room too which makes living out of the trunk a little more convenient.


If your camp has no height restrictions, then go as big as you can with the Graduate. For campers who are looking forward to a lengthier camp stay at a camp without laundry service, this is the trunk for you. The Graduate also offers excellent future use at school if college is coming up soon after your summer camp days.
