    I've found that an old ambulance or rescue truck makes a great vehicle. The old walk-in rescue trucks seem to be the best as they are usually already set up for a generator and compartments for storing equipment. The walk-in or ambulance body is ideal in the pacific northwest due to rain and makes for a good place to interview witnesses on scene with minimal distraction and adequate privacy. Hope this helps.

    I like the idea of a 4x4 truck. Below is the type I would try for.

    -Four Door p/u
    -4x4 automatic
    -4'bed on truck

    This will be a perfect fit. You have a four door in case anyone else would need to ride, plus give you enough room for storing items such as camera(s), files, etc. But at the same time would be sufficient space for items that were mentioned above (cord reels, lights, gear, generator, evidence cans, etc). And of course put a loking top over the bed. A full sixe truck bed might be okay if used with a sliding tray. Good luck.
