Luggage for Morocco

I've read that there may be places with no elevator, etc. I traveled to Kenya with a soft sided Lipault which was 21 inches. I want to go a little bigger but but still want mobility. Is 24 or 26 inches reasonable? I'll be on an OAT trip but I get the feeling you're not necessarily getting help with your luggage.I'm not lazy, just getting older. Lol.

Who can say if 24 inches is 'reasonable' (I can't imagine needing a 26 incher) . . . Why do you think you'll need larger luggage for Morocco than you did in Kenya?

I travel for months with a 22 inch. Why do you need 24 or 26? What does your tour handbook say about luggage?

We just returned from 10 nights in Morocco with 2 - 24" suitcases (we were away for over a month). I wouldn't have wanted to drag them up the stairs in many of our hotels - the staff helped us in every case. But I'm not sure I'd want to drag a 22" up either! Hoping you can get some assistance if needed.

A fully-loaded 24-inch bag can weigh as much as 50 pounds if you have shoes, etc. in it and the bag itself is fairly heavy. If it were me, 22 inches feels plenty big and easily holds more than a week's worth of clothes. I always pack for a week and plan to do a little laundry along the way. I'd rather spend $30 for laundry than have a huge suitcase, but it's definitely not the route everyone would go. I'd take a 22-inch bag for a month as well since that's the largest bag I own.

Me too. (Well I do own larger bags but only use them as props in my packing class )

For a week or less I typically take a 19 inch rollie bag and for long trips usually a 22 incher.

Thanks. My Africa case was actually even smaller and it was a struggle. I'm going to be gone a month so I think I'll stay with a 22" max. Thanks for talking some sense into me. Lol.
