Trays are a staple to the quintessential camp trunk. Decades ago, our trunks always included a wooden tray. The plastic Glide & Go Tray, however, has long replaced the bulky wooden tray and it’s been gliding and going summer after summer ever since. Designed to “glide” from one side to the other, it offers easy access to your contents below and keeps potentially messy toiletries and other small items tidy and organized.
We first realized we needed to offer a smaller tray than our original when our Sales Director Matt was visiting camps and kept noticing campers struggle to get at the items in their trunk—the clunky wooden tray blocking everything below. It was very cumbersome! Matt thought, “What’s the point in a camp trunk if you can’t get to anything inside it?”
Each time you wanted to get something out of your trunk, you had to find a clear area the size of your trunk’s footprint where you could set your tray down, get what you wanted from your trunk, and put your tray back. We set out to fix that…
We dropped more than three pounds by getting rid of the wooden tray! Unlike our original wooden tray, the Glide & Go has a lid so you can pack it full and be sure nothing spills out! Constructed of plastic, don’t be afraid to let the tray get wet or store wet things inside. The Glide & Go Tray isn’t as weighted as its wooden predecessor and takes up half the space the original did. From customer outreach and surveys we’ve taken, we know our switch to the Glide & Go Tray was well-received.
What Glides about the Glide & Go Tray?
Summer camp is BUSY. Campers have lots of places to go and people to see! This tray wastes no time! It sits inside your trunk and slides side-to-side so the contents of your footlocker are easy to grab. Instead of having to completely remove the tray from inside your trunk like you had to with our original, just slide the tray to the other side, grab the items you need, and you’re on your way!
A Tray Beyond the Camp Stay
While it was made with summer camp in mind, the Glide & Go Tray is a versatile product that is useful inside your trunk and out. These trays are stackable for convenient storage around the house. They work great to organize and store school, arts and crafts projects, small garage tools, giftwrap accessories and plenty more. The lid opens from both ends too so it never matters which way it ends up facing.
Is one tray not enough for you? No problem! Our footlockers fit two side by side! Get as many as you like! You won’t be dissatisfied. Just check out what this customer had to say about our Glide & Go Trays:

C&N Glide & Go Tray
The tray was a great addition to our camp trunk. It fit in perfectly (it does need to be pushed back in order for the trunk to close but not an issue) and was the perfect storage space for smaller items that we didn’t want to get lost down in the trunk!
Love this tray, great idea to use the extra lid space and holds a lot of stuff!
These are so great for providing extra storage and organization. Great buy!
I love this I am able to put all my beads in it for camp and it uses that extra space in the top of the trunk thats not used!
