Canon - Sell or keep Canon 70-700 is USM?

Photography Equipment & Products - www.thephotoforum.com
I currently own:

Canon 60d (will eventually buy canon 6d in the next year)

70-200 2.8L mm is USM

24-70 2.8L mm

50 mm 1.8 prime

The reason I'm unsure is because the lens is very heavy and obnoxious but I was shocked at how sharp the pictures are. (I bought this lens in December after using the ef-s 18-135 for a few years) I bought the 24-70mm in the past month and compared to the telephoto I'm disappointed with the sharpness of the photos I'm taking and lack of IS but still love the lens. I want to sell the telephoto because I want to break my way into travel/landscape and I need a used car and selling that lens would give me a large chunk of the money I need otherwise I'd keep it to see how I like it for at least some span of time. I like the telephoto but because I want to travel I'm assuming I'll want to pack lighter but because I could not afford the 24-70 is II I feel it's a second grade lens :/.. im looking for insight and I'm also looking for travel camera bag recommendations for ultra wide angle lens recommendations for the next few years after I get used to what I have.
