Sears & JC Whitney trunk Questions

First off I ordered a large one frome sears online, on sale, and they sent me an email and canceled my order due to none in stock. I called and they said it would be mid July before they got more.


My question is when I am looking at them on Sears and JC Whitney websites I see some listed as matte and some listed as glossy. Is this correct that their is a difference? I have them as side luggage and a Givi top box. My father in law broke one of my boxes and I need to replace one and want it to match. Is there a glossy one and a matte one? I believe mine are large but they don't look glossy to me.

I have that same question. I did a "live chat" with customer service and they couldn't even find the product. I tried to send them a link and then just gave up. Don't they advertise the medium as glossy and the large as matte? I wanted to know if they had the large in glossy.

Sorry forgot to answer your question about the finish of what you have now. It looks to me like you have matte finish that's nice and new or recently treated with an Armour-all type of product.

Tom,
When they canceled my order I called them and the customer service lady on the phone told me that they were not listed on the website and I was looking at them while I talked to her.

I have the large one and it's certainly not 'glossy'.

Yeah mine are not "glossy" either but I think their websites list the large as glossy. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't gonna end up with the wrong box, if they will get them back in stock.

When I read that description that says glossy I think of something that is painted, like the upper on the bike.

Who did you order yours from? I had ordered mine from Sears. It was about a week and a half before I got the email. By the way the customer service lady on the phone said that the supplier was JC Whitney.
