What can be a checked bag?

At PC does checked luggage have to be a traditionally shaped suitcase; or a duffle-shaped bags or carry-ons allowed? I am having very real trouble getting all our luggage & people into the van!

As noted, you can pretty much check any size/shape bag you wish. I will point out that checked bags are not treated very gently, so be sure it's sturdy, or has unbreakable/uncrushable stuff in it. Here's a picture of one of the baggage waiting areas where bags are tossed (as in thrown) prior to delivery to rooms:

Thank you, all.
Picture is great. Thanks.
Ok. I feel better. I need to use more soft-sided bags than large, hard suitcases to get luggage under our seats.
OR leave someone home. And that doesn't seem too *family vacation*
