Where larger markings are present, you may see patches as in the picture below.

Extended legs: If you have a mattress thicker than 8 inches, and feet larger than a mens size 12, you may want to consider the extended length legs. See dimensions here.

    This is a perfect item for a shared dorm room. I got it for my son and it allows him to secure his laptop and other personal items (chocolate stash!). He also uses it as a desk when he wants to sit on his bed and study. It fit perfectly at the base of his XL Twin bed.
    When I was in college – many years ago – this wouldn’t have even crossed my mind. But now these kids can have up to 4 roommates in a single room! You may trust your roommates but it’s hard to control who they bring into your room.
    This is a GREAT practical graduation gift. Great quality. Will last your college career no problem.

    My son’s bunk trunk has been a great dorm room addition. In the third week of school a student was caught after stealing from 9 different dorm rooms. Needless to say, none of my son’s items were touched. it makes a great charging station and a great secure place to store valuables while he is away at school. I would highly recommend this item.

    Wonderful concept and excellent customer support, but remember YOUR MEASUREMENTS before ordering! Amid the rush to outfit a dorm room for the first time, buy a new PC, and beat the clock during COVID shipping to buy an amazing Bunk Trunk we didn’t think to measure. Totally my bad. Got to move in during under COVID pressures all proud to set up the trunk and the PC didn’t fit by a fraction 🙁 🙁 🙁 That was major purpose of buying. Other than that, it makes a nice alternative drop down work area during these times of online classes and will secure smaller items, but bummed new PC can’t be locked.
