I did get to test drive my folks' 2009 Sequoia, and that would be a sweet TV for anything 25' or less, I think. Certainly better-built (from what I could see) than the Nissan. But a 28' CCD just cries out for a super-duty TV.

I don't see where this was suggested:
4 door pickup truck with either a cap or tonneu cover. You could put the expensive and fragile stuff in the cab with you, it's lockable, and the other stuff, such as generator or bicycle, can go in the bed, with no grease or gas fumes to share the interior with.

Yeah, I had thought of that, but the items that are going in the "cargo" area are things like a filmmaking light kit, stands, audio gear and other items. In some ways they're better off under a tonneau cover (can't see what's in there), but exposure to any kind of elements just isn't an option.

So, the SUV seems the way to go.

one other thought if you get the diesel,make sure you take it to a place that has properly certified technicians.on the 6.0 alot of the early problems were due to lack of training.also diesel power magazine just put out a list of the top 10 diesels,and the 2005 6.0 excursion made the list.my brother is a ford tech and he told me that in the earlier yrs 2000 -2004 ford put out 45000 excursions per yr.for the 2005 yr 15000 excursions were made.after the diesel power article ,i have a feeling the 2005s are going to get harder to come by.
