Only real market for trucks nowadays is for Live Broadcast jobs or similar where you need a good mixing environment straight away, and space for specifically hired staff to work - or with complex Sync requirements. Just tracking for mixing later can easily be done with gear in a small case backstage, and most medium-large PA rigs have this capability anyway. There's lots of smaller trucks now - delivery van size - with pretty amazing track counts as the gear has gotten smaller, but even the cost of parking permits outside venues can strain the budgets promoters allow for recording. If you're more interested in recording sessions with bands in non-studio spaces, rather than live events, a cased-up system lets you be in the room with them, rather than out in the carpark communicating over a speaker.
