    Default deck box/outdoor trunk as tack trunk?

    Has anyone seen what they term a "deck box" or outdoor patio trunk used as a tack box? They look roomy and they are cheap...

    The one I saw at Costco for like, $89 was a piece of crap. Flimsy as hell and looked/felt like a stiff wind would blow it to pieces.

    ^^that's the one I got after spending two weekends "tack box" shopping. I LOVE IT. Plus you can padlock it. Right now it fits a Rubbermaid tub with grain in it (just one bag), a large plastic grooming tote, small bath bucket, first aid kit, random spray bottles, and another tub with sheets, leg boots, and random odds and ends in it. I also had my hoof supplement bucket in there, but I was able to put it inside the grain tub so I have even more room! The thing is huge, sturdy, and after a day of raining I didn't see any moisture in it at all! The part I love is the hinges of the lid are reinforced, not cheap, flimsy strips of plastic that will last about a week. DH said it took him like, 15 minutes to put together.

    LOVE that thing. I don't keep saddles or bridles in there, but I thought about it! But I live 5 min from the barn and have a tack corner in our garage, so I'm able to grab my saddle/pad/bridle/helmet, toss in the truck, and go.

    I got this trunk:http://www.doversaddlery.com/sportot...unk/p/X1-4731/ years ago. It's moved up and down the East Coast a couple of times, is currently sitting in my parents garage, and still looked like new last time I saw it (2 years ago). The link might be an updated version of it though, I don't know if they change the style. But I'm fairly certain its the same trunk, I definitely didn't pay any more than that.
