This clever piece of luggage revolutionized the travel industry by making the traditional horizontal suitcase vertical. It’s extended handle and ease of mobility was an instant hit that changed the travel industry and made its creator a millionaire.
Invented by a Northwest Airlines pilot named Bob Plath, the Rollaboard became so successful that most airlines reconfigured their overhead space to better accommodate the popular 22-inch carry-ons.
This was back before suitcases had wheels or pull straps. The Rollaboard made it much easier to handle luggage and it liberated travelers from bellhops and porters.
There was another advantage to using the Rollaboard. The smaller bag held less crap– so travelers found themselves packing light, just like professional travelers.
