I say no on the rolling luggage. It's not going to roll very well over grass/dirt..and it sounds exhausting to pull that around...I'd get a camping backpack. Easy to move with and holds more (if you use it correctly)
Backpack and grab a $5 golf cart ride over to group camping? There is no easy way to roll luggage on the ground at Roo.
This. Or maybe make 2-3 trips, if necessary. If you have the time and don't mind walking, it might not be that bad, unless you get stuck walking from BFE to Groop. Personally, I wouldn't spend much on a backpack just for this. Maybe a big, cheap duffle bag, but I'd probably take a $5 taxi or two, if not just walk over twice. Depending on how much your group likes you, you could walk over quickly once with a light load, walk back and talk with a friend, have a drink on the way, and grab whatever else you need. You might end up far away, might not, but any walking to Groop will only be a prelude to all the walking you do the rest of the weekend.
I might bring the garden cart I built out of PVC and hand truck wheels, in case I get Pod 11 or something and decide to move my crap to tent only. As already suggested by krstphr, a wagon would be great.

SO, I haven't been to Roo since they started the Group Camping Option- but I was under the impression that if you paid for group camping, you could park there. Am I wrong, and is Group like Tent Only? Do you need to lug your stuff across the farm for Group?
EDIT- I just read on the official website that groups only get one car pass per 3 group members. Is there not another member in your Group who can pick you up from the airport? (would save on the rental car cost)

I usually fit all my clothes/toiletries in my 60L backpack with a ton of room to spare. Can't imagine ever needing rolling luggage, but my bag never leaves my vehicle so honestly it wouldn't matter either way. Even if you planned on walking to TO or something a rolling suitcase would probably more of a hassle on the gravel and whatnot.
