How many of us are still dragging around those heavy pieces of luggage? Well, it's time for some new pieces! You know, the kind that have the expandable tote-handle and wheels! Ah, what relief for our backs! I found these sizes to be so handy: 21"/22" Carry-on (but don't carry on :o) 27" Upright, then add the 15" Tote (to carry with you containing your medications and other absolute senior travel necessities), and the hang-up/zip-close 'suiter' that has great extra compartments. These latter two MUST have handles, so you can lap these over either the Upright or Carry-on extended handles, and shuffle along your way! Don't throw out the old luggage, tho; use to store old keepsakes, clothing, books, whatever, and place in the attic to one day give to your grandchildren!
