I agree a van is ultimate solution, but trying to avoid large expense for now...I have given a shell with rack and installing pullout drawers inside bed. However , if drawers on bottom with shelf on top for larger tools,  plywood would have to be stacked on roof rack?  Sorry, if I'm sounding picky. I really appreciate the input, and curious about what others are doing. I know there is no perfect solution. Also I forgot to mention I need some type of collapsible  work /cutting table. I've been using simple saw horses and 2x4 thing.

Bud,

Craigslist has covered trailers for all the time , look at those.

When I was in the vending business my first truck was a 1/4 ton pickup that I put a flat deck on and built a box that was 8 feet long and 4 feet high. Each side had a single lift up door which was great in incliment weather. I built it inside specifically to carry the product I needed. My next truck was  an Izuzu NPR 1 1/2 ton truck on duals with a 14 ft box that was also 4 feet high. Each side had 2 lift up doors. Never had to crawl into or around anything. Everything was accesible standing on the ground (protected when it rained). The truck got phenominal fuel mileage(diesel) and maneuverability was better than many smaller cars.  It was painted black with NO outside identification( for security). I had it for 15 years with NO theft. Someone asked my neighbor once what I hauled in that truck and he said "dead bodies" and the guy believed him.  I am a big believer in "purpose built" vehicles.

GW,
 If I didn't have the funds for a van, then I would take out the back seat and install two systainer length drawers- 2 sys wide on each side, and go up high enough to where I could still see out the rear view mirror. This could get 24 systainers inside the cab.

I thought about that before. Only issue is that  the doors open a lot less than 90 degrees. So the pull out sys drawer would have to slide at an angle. It would be tough to get two sys to fit side by side on drawer.  I made a backseat sys rack holder out of ply, but everything slid around every turn if it wasn't full with systainers.  I've gotta give the drawer idea another look. Thanks

GW,
 1. Maybe have the drawers "vee" -V- tpwars the center?
Or,
 2. Have them face the side of the systainer, so that they have a narrow profile?
Or,
3. A combiation of the two above?
