Why take up one of the 16 available SSIDs to distinguish between 
regular mobiles and trucks? Could -14 be put to better use for some 
other purpose?

Bob, I know you'll cringe when you read this, but SSIDs really 
present a problem for me. In my APRS arsenal, I have the following:

1. A Kenwood TM-D710 in my car.
2. A Kenwood TM-D710 in my SUV.
3. Two Argent Data T2-135s mounted in Alinco DR-135 radios. They 
could theoretically be used anywhere I need a temporary tracker or digipeater.
4. Two Argent Data T2-301s that can be used as standalone trackers.
5. And I occasionally run UI-View either at home or mobile.

If I give them all a separate SSID, I need seven.
