You could fly on Southwest, like me, & have no baggage fees for 2 large checked bags & one large carry-on.
I weigh the suitcases and after initial packing one weighed 60 lbs & 2nd weighed 53 lbs. After removing much stuff
(repurchased some in Reno) & transferring some heavy items to the carryon both checked bags weighed 49.5 lbs.
They only charge $50 for the 3rd bag. (too much to Schlep thru airports as I age !)
My only thing I removed & regret I didn't replace was lamps. My camp had a power grid but I only brought 2 lights & the
one with a weird R-14 bulb soon broke. Luckly I had a number of hand held LED lights.
