The concept of a truck with camper shell can include a generator set and gasoline, spare propane tank(s), fire in a can, and other bulky heavy and perhaps odorous stuff.

You may find your camping stuff and tools category is too light. I have more than 150 pounds in tools, fire shovel, rope, tree branch saw, spare power cables for different connections, surge suppressor, extra water tanks, blocks for setting up the trailer to make it level, cleaning supplies, rain gear etc.....

As Switz says, it all depends on how you travel. If a generator and extra water is important to you, then a truck might well be the best option.

If you travel somewhat lighter and want to drive a vehicle with superior handling, then there are non-truck options available too.

It really depends on your projected use.

I have never driven or pulled with a Cayenne. But we went on a 2 month long caravan that crossed the Rockies with a person that was pulling a single axle Airstream with a Cayenne. It appeared to be an absolutly awsome combination. He had no problems at all. Very manuverable. And a nice ride when unhitched. I do not carry much extra stuff when Airstreaming. Hose, cord adaptors, sewer hose, chocks, Lynx blocks, sealant, tape, pex fittings, rivet gun. Cordless drill for the stabalizers. All fits in the trailer compartments

If you go with the 6.5 bed on the F150 you should be fine. Be certain to check with your salesman. The F150 comes with many options so you must be clear as to your priorities. I do have a 2013 F150 and it is the best vehicle I have ever owned.
