Rimowa Trunk

Is there any advantage to this style/ size of check-in luggage as opposed to the regular style Rimowa/ non-Rimowa luggages?

Yes, the height makes it possible to pack larger cube dimension objects.

The trunk is more convenient IMO, as the previous poster mentioned.

However, keep in mind that the size of the RIMOWA Trunk can exceed some carriers' check-in dimensions, resulting in oversize baggage fees.

The Trunk-S is more within the limitations of what carriers permit before assessing additional fees.

Check with the airline you travel with most, to see if the dimensions will interfere with your plans.

62 inches total added dimensions is the limit for most carriers. The Trunk Plus is over by about 1.3 inches! LOL
I think the regular Trunk and the Trunk S are fine.

On their web site, it says, "Your Rimowa arrives with complimentary extras inside the box." Anyone know what that means?

Your "complimentary extras" are the usual items, that have not changed since the previous generation Topas models.

The items include:

-Stickers
-Luggage Tag
-Wool Dust Bag

The appropriate manual, and warranty guide remain in the "upgraded" extras.
