Four of my closest neighbors all have the Rubbermaid Gentry mailbox. One new one due to a tree falling recently and taking out a metal mailbox and post so the new one is a Rubbermaid Gentry which is still sold at Menards. The flag on the box does fade due to the sun but the box is durable and doing well. For those who say the boxes don't do well in northern climates then I'd say whoever plows their roads doesn't care about any mailbox and unless it is made of cast iron will be damaged by a snow plow. The mailbox post is hollow and slides over a 4 x 4" treated post put into the ground. I've had other curb side mailboxes and this one is a winner and large enough to hold some packages that other boxes won't hold.

very disappointed in the deign of product. Looks great is very durable, but pray it never rains or snows other wise you need to put your mail in the dryer. All mail always wet. I even thought it was the mail service leaving door open and left a letter to them. Well upon further inspection i noticed that it comes in from the sides because the main top piece does not sit over the base instead it sits inside, hence wet mail. i may either return to home depot or fix it my self unless rubbermaid stands behind their product.

Downfall

By TracyL

from Wisconsin, United States

Comments about Rubbermaid Gentry Mailbox and Post Combo in White (GC1W):

It is a great mailbox, except for the part where anyone can snap off the box portion and steal it. It snaps on hard, but there are no screws or bolts, etc keeping it in place to stop it from happening. Our top was stole last night.

Comments about Rubbermaid Gentry Mailbox and Post Combo in White (GC1W):

We live on a small cul de sac, and our Rubbermaid mailbox has been hit by cars, trash trucks, service trucks, etc an average of 3 times each year. After 8 years, it's time to replace it with another identical one.

Gentry mailbox

By OhioBob56

from North field,ohio

Comments about Rubbermaid Gentry Mailbox and Post Combo in White (GC1W):

This mailbox is not suited for Ohio winters.Have fixed 4 times this winter.Whenever a snow plow goes by it is pushed off its base by the force of the snow.The dovetail design and less than durable plastic are design flaws.These units were probably not tested in the northern climates.I see that Rubbermaid does not make mailboxes any more. Could this be the reason?

    All went well and delivery directly to store was convenient. Only "problem", I think I should have been notified be email or call that I could come and pick it up at the store rather than me getting inpatient and finally calling them.

    Not made for winter weather

    By out60bucks

    from Northern Ohio

    Comments about Rubbermaid Gentry Mailbox and Post Combo in White (GC1W):

    I have always used Step 2 mailboxes and they have held up fairly well against the ohio winters and snowplows, but this rubbermaid box is useless if you live anywhere where it is going to be subject to snowplows throwing snow at it. I bought it in the fall of the year and when I put it together I could tell that it was not as sturdy as the step 2, but I put it up anyways. Low and behold the first time the snowplow went down the road the top of my mailbox was in the middle of my driveway. It rips the screw, yes only one screw, right out of the plastic and their rail system that they use doesn't work at all, poor design. For a company that is based out of northern ohio you would think that they would field test these, obviously not. If you live where you don't have snow it will probably be just fine but if you live where snowplows come down your road you might want to consider a different option.

    Very Disappointed

    By Viola

    from Rochester, NY

    Comments about Rubbermaid Gentry Mailbox and Post Combo in White (GC1W):

    We have had this mailbox a little over two years. First the flap for the newspaper broke off after approx. 1 year. Now the mailbox magnet latch doesnt work and the door stays open allowing the mail to fall out and of course the newspaper to go flying on windy days. Like I said I am very disappointed. I have tryed to clean the magnet but my only option is to buy another mailbox. I selected this one because we live in the north and I thought it would weather the snow better. I do like the double door since I live on a busy highway.

    Wet Mail

    By rcraw

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Rubbermaid Gentry Mailbox and Post Combo in White (GC1W):

    This is a sturdy, not bad-looking mailbox, with one major drawback-whenever it rains, and I mean every time it rains, the inside of the box gets wet. Of course this means my mail gets wet. The doors appear to be attached correctly and close tightly, so I don't know how the rain gets in. This also is a problem in the winter with snow.

    Virtually indestructible

    By Cuda

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Rubbermaid Gentry Mailbox and Post Combo in White (GC1W):

    This mailbox has been exploded by fireworks placed in the mail area and reassembled. Just today it was run over by a truck tearing it from the post. There is a small hole on the outer layer of the mail box and the rear mail door had one of the hinge pins broken off. It is beginning to show evidence of the abuse and should probably be replaced, but it is still functional.

    Best Ever

    By Leigh225nBR

    from Baton Rouge, LA

    Comments about Rubbermaid Gentry Mailbox and Post Combo in White (GC1W):

    My old mailbox had seen its better days, the door was about to fall off the hindges. I installed one of these for a friends daughter a couple of years ago. I decided to purchase one for myself, I know it was a great decision, this is one of the best mailboxes I have seen or used ever, the durability is superb, the design is innovative and the assembly is user friendly. I would recommend this mailbox to anyone that needs a sturdy unit that is accepted by the US Postal service.

    I guess mine wasn't the only.....

    By littleapplejen

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Rubbermaid Gentry Mailbox and Post Combo in White (GC1W):

    I purchased the Rubbermaid mailbox and paid more money than others in town that have just a stick with a black box barely hanging on to the top and thought mine would last forever. Well, my neighbors metal box on a stick is still hanging in there but my rubbermaid couldn't stand up to snow being thrown at it and I had to buy a new mailbox after 2 years. I had the same problem as others, the front flap fell off and left my mail visible to all traffic. I either had to stop my mail or replace it immediately for obvious reasons and I chose to take a day off of work to dig up my old box and put a new one (different brand name) on the curb. It was a major inconvenience, one may forget that putting a mailbox in is very time consuming...I wouldn't recommend this to anyone that lives on a road with frequent snow plow traffic.

    Quick and Easy Home Improvement

    By revclock

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Rubbermaid Gentry Mailbox and Post Combo in White (GC1W):

    We live on a very visible corner proprty and have always had an old black plastic mailbox attached to the iron handrails. I installed this new mailbox today next to the front steps. The color matches our outdoor shutters, green roof, and house trim extremely well. The instructions should recommend the use of a power drill or power screwdriver to install the screws. It made the installation so much easier.

    Poor Quality

    By TeeNee

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Rubbermaid Gentry Mailbox and Post Combo in White (GC1W):

    Had to return the first one back to the store, the Top would not slide on to the base assembly due to distorted tabs. The second one the tabs were better but still not right. The included instructions in the second box were for a different model of the mail box. It was very hard to assemble the product due to it not fitting together very well .
