The F-250 should be getting closer to 18 MPG on diesel. Cargo tops are probably more susceptible to breakin than a car, but I don't know this to be true.

Bigger van is all I can think of. If you got one big enough, you could fit all your gear and sleep everyone. Camper vans can be rented, though I'm not sure it will save you money compared to a hotel.
