There are several full size SUVs that could be a capable TV, IMO. I tow a 26BH (7500 GTW) with my v8 Armada. Plenty of room for my family of 5 - much more than any truck I've seen. Chevy Suburban is another option.

I use my pickup as a daily driver. In fact, its the only vehicle we own now that we are retired.

Just as much luxury and comfort as most any car or SUV.

Folks on this forum just trying to steer you in the right direction.

My brother in law has a Sequoia which has the 5.7 - same as the Tundra. It's a real nice ride unloaded so it's a bit squishy with a trailer. May consider getting RAS or air bags if it sags too much.

LOL!! That's great! If I weren't terrified of clowns, it would be a more humorous image!

On that note, take a look at a RAM Mega Cab, those things are ridiculous inside, you could fit two clown circuses in there! Twice the nightmare!

I can vouch for the RAS, I have it on my truck and I like it a lot. I don't know what kind of rear springs the Sequoia has, but the RAS only works on leaves, air bags would be a better option for coil sprung suspension. It really helps stabilize a heavy load, and it eliminated the excessive bouncing I used to get after a severe bump in the road, and cornering empty it's a completely different truck. They advertise that it helps with wheel hop and axle wrap, but to my knowledge I didn't have those problems before the RAS (well maybe a little wheel hop here and there on wash-board pavement).

Most hybrids would fit that description. X18d has 3 bunk areas and 4600# GTW.
