"trunk"


Today's Spanishdictionary.com word of the day was "trunk" (a.k.a. "boot" in the U.K.). The translation given was baúl, but WordReference lists cajuela as being more common in Mexico and Ecuador, and maletero or maletera being commonly used in other Spanish speaking countries. I'm curious to know what word (or words) is (are) most commonly used in Mexico, and specifically Baja.
