Maybe this is the old military mutt in me, I don't know, but it seems to me that something I learned as a Boy Scout a million years ago applied then, applied in my military career, applied in my reenactor career, and applies here...

"Never pack more than you can carry."

If you can't lift it, you can do without it.

Or you need stronger friends.

Either way... 🤣😅😉

I can carry it (and do, when the surface gets too wheel-hostile).

But tell me, ya ol' mutt:  given a choice of wheels or not-wheels for a big load... wouldn't you (mostly) choose wheels?  Not right at a staircase, or sand, or other "hostile terrain," not if ya gotta double-time it, but just walking a load 100 yards from point-a to point-b?

Well, that's not a jab at you, man.

Personally, given that choice, I honest to God would pick carrying it. I've never had a 'rollaway' bag that I've liked very much and most of the time I find them more trouble than they're worth. Obviously, you mileage will vary... literally!... so do what's best for you.
