Tack Trunk Idea?

I was looking at alternatives for tack trunks so that I wouldnt have to buy the ones specifically for holding saddles, as most are $200+.

So I was thinking about these:
Http://www.amazon.com/Suncast-DCC3000-Cooler/dp/B000FJIPQC/ref=pd_sim_k_2
The saddle would go in the top part that lifts up since it's deep-ish, and then supplies in the bottom part. I like that it has a little fold out extension and wheels. As well as that it's meant for outdoor use so it may be more durable.

Or this:
Patio Prep Station : Target

Not as sure about this one, but the saddle would go in the bottom part and supplies in the top. I would probably figure out a way to put the saddle in the bottom. But it may not be big enough. I still have to measure things.

And the last idea:
Suncast Deck Box With Seat And Wheels : Target

A plain ole' outdoor box with wheels. Has handles so that's good, and it is weather resistant.

Again, I'll have to measure things to see how they'd fit, but I think these may be good alternatives. As well as maybe some of the really big tubs from rubbermate.

Any advice or opinions?

I spent $170 on my daughter's plastic trunk and then discovered that half the peole at our barn got just as nice a plastic trunk (with a better closure) from Home Depot. I think they are considered tool boxes made by Stanley and they even have a similar removable tray for small items. You can lock them and they have wheels on one side. I think someone told me it cost less than $60.

The ones I take to shows are just big wood trunks with whicker covers and I got them out of someone's garbage . Everyone commented on them saying what a neat thing it was!

Oh yes those look so nice too! Do you know if they were in the 24 gallon or 50 gallon size?

I need to fit a saddle in there as well as extra stuff.

Nice :P TBH, I don't want wood. If I get wood, it will be because my dad and I make one together. Which we may do, but Id prefer these plastic ones with wheels.

If you want to fit a saddle in there then definitely get the biggest you can find.

I think the ones that are 50 gallons are around $120. The 24 is the $60. So I don't think that would fit enough of my supplies.

It only cost me 200 to build my tack box and it was huge.

Only? Lol. Sorry, but I don't want to spend that much on a tack box.

Im now thinking of this:
Walmart.com: Trinity 3-in-1 Suitcase Toolbox in Stainless Steel with Black Accents: Tools
It would be pretty decent to tote around if I had to, and the bottom compartment seems huuuge. And its only 84 bucks.
