it would probably make sense to list your requirements in more explicit form, if you want further input. Otherwise we end up spending too much time on fireside chat discussions.
From the trucks shown by you:
The first is well known, but approx 4 meters short of your 12m requirement.
The A1 8x8 in lime with the lifting living box. This would be my approach to "circle the square" on offroad capabilities, internal space, minimizing travel heigth and endurance.

I think you are overemphasizing the complexity of the diesel tank. 1000lt is 1 cubicmeter, thats all it takes. Need 2000lt, put 2 tanks on the truck.
The 4x4 with trailer is also an interesting "solution". It depends on the usage pattern of the 2 of you. Might be a hassle, or convenient.
The last point: Whatever the final solution will be. The more expensive it is, the less likely it will see "serious" offroad conditions. (Unless you are super rich and can afford destroying lots of value just for the pure fun of it.)
You are completely right about your first phrase... I even thought it some days ago... I will re-think what we really would like about the truck. I am doing a sketch to send to the manufacturer and I forgot this truck that is also a big inspiration for us "goleoni truck" https://www.instagram.com/doleoni_truck/?hl=en
Some comments about this truck will be appreciated!
I did not understand totally about the diesel tank... do you mean that with only one is enough or with two from 1000lts each?
We need off road and living/work space too so surely the truck would have certain limitations about off road.
About the trucks; The 8x8 beige Swiss was exhibit in a tv program in the Unites States and then it was posted on youtube, for us the interior is reduced to work and live we consider the truck just great! The lime, is also a great truck with the advantage os the lifting roof but we knew that any lifting roof whatever the size is, becomes very expensive, I even contacted Hellget at the beginning of our planning in the project but they told me that a project like this one could take some years before to be completed, so I understood that they were over demanded and with tons of work, & curiously... the one with the trailer is super interesting to us because we are thinking to have a trailer for many reasons, but yes this truck is also a great example, but in a longer size maybe not 12m or even 11m but longer that the truck showed.
To finish... this truck (the oxford grey), again is also together with the "doleoni truck" the closest than we are looking for!
