Default Trunk recommendations

I'm in need of a trunk that I can carry on both my cabriolet and my A400. What would y'all recommend?

Usually, cabriolet uses a straight back trunk while sedan uses curved back - but I suppose there's no reason either back can't be used on either body. FWIW: http://www.varcoinc.com/ - never bought from them but have heard good things from those who have. Not cheap but trunks are steel where some others are wood.

My brother-in-law and I built one out of wood. I painted it with acrylic enamel.
