I want to build a tack trunk and saddle rack

Hi everyone, I think I have a challenge for you all.
I am looking into building my own tack truck/shelving unit thing, and a saddle rack. I have found plans for a saddle rack that I want to build, but I am kind of picky about the tack trunk I want to build. Ill tell you what I am looking for in the tack trunk, and if you have come across plans similar to what I am looking to build, I would very much appreciate it! :)

My SUV is going to become the ultimate tack transporter because im back and forth between 3 farms... but anyway. I want shelves for saddle pads, chaps, etc. I want to add a bandage holder in there somewhere (might just buy a metal one and screw it in there, but I don't know yet.) I want something to hold bridles, but not sure if that will work or not because I don't want the trunk to be too tall. I would need a shallow bin thing to hold gloves and misc. Things too. I love shelving, compartments, etc. and to keep things separated and organized. (OCD much! LOL) Maybe half could be shelving and open from the front. That would be nice. I like the idea of putting a net on the lid and putting saddle pads and whatever in it too.

I am liking the look of this one, but not liking the price of the plans
Elite Tack Design - Basic Tack Plus, Low-cost, Simple-to-build, Tack Trunk Plans
And I really like this one
Elite Tack Design - Total Tack Trunk, Low-cost, Simple-to-build, Tack Trunk Plans

I know this is probably overload lol. Im overloaded with ideas and what I want!
Maybe I could design my own plans with a 3-D program at school...
Oi, so many options and I don't know what to do!

If any of you know of any other websites than elitetackdesign.com that give you blueprints and instructions, I would love to know about them!! Thank you in advance! :)

I love this idea, yes the plans are a bit pricey so if you could design your own then that would be good.

Downloadable Woodworking Plans Don't know if you like these but under 12 dollars?

And the top one is the most expensive and includes wrap plan and tote too?

I have a large old trunk that I redid, I put a saddle rack on one end and the other was room for plastic containers (from walmart), each one has vet kit, people stuff, hardware and stuff. There is a tray that fits over top that I put little things in like my grooming kit, if I knew how you probably could use the lid for something too because it isn't sunk in, it just sets on top. The great past it's lockable, has wheels in the bottom (built in) and large leather handles to move it will. Two people are a must for moving it. But generally most tack storage isn't meant to move, it weighs to much.

Thanks everyone! I just had a big "DUH" moment though... I will be keeping this in my truck probably 24-7 and there is no way that I can get one that will open up LOL. I think I will have to make my own design and plans. Oops. Well I think I will design something with a bunch of shelves and some drawrs and have the door drop down. Im trying to think of what I would need to make shelves and drawrs for
