Short (21 inch?) non carry-on luggage

So, we may be looking for a unicorn in luggage. Something not terribly tall (21 inches or so), but wider and deeper than what is allowed as carryons. We want shorter luggage that will be checked. The motivation for this is easier fit in small rental cars.

Standard "medium" sized luggage is 24 - 27 inches tall. Is there anything shorter, but still wide and deep?

I know the Briggs & Riley International Carryon is wider and deeper than the domestic - 21” tall / 15” wide / 9” deep

You might be looking for a unicorn since the bag companies would be selling something small that’s technically not carryon luggage.

My guess would be your beat bet is going to be a to look around at a TJ Maxx or Marshall’s for something that’s not carryon compliant and has been discontinued.

The dimensions remind me of a suiter/garmet style suitcase. Samsonite makes one which eBags lists at 22" x 20" x 10". I'd consider it on the heavy side at 10 lbs.
