I had a '98 Ford Explorer that I used for tent camping and then, the last three years I had it, for pulling my PUP. I now have an '11 RAM 1500 pickup with a canopy over the bed. There is absolutely no contest in my mind. I love the pickup. It's just me alone or DW and me so there is plenty of room. RAM's Quad Cab is the biggest "extended cab" (i.e., not a full back seat crew cab) that I saw when shopping and the ability to open the back doors like regular ones instead of opening the front door first is fantastically convenient.
