I'm thinking, push the vehicle off the road.  Cache the gear I can't carry but cache it separately from my vehicle.  If my truck's broke it ain't gonna do me a whole lotta good.  The extra gear inside would be a different story. 
Having said that, I have always been aware of the very real possibility that I wouldn't be able to drive to my BOL.  To that end, I have made sure that most of everything I'll need is already in place.  Basically, guns, groceries and bug out bags and we're on our way.  Anything else would be nice to have things.  My belief is that if you have a BOL but you still have to spend 2 or 3 hours loading your truck and trailer, you haven't planned and prepared properly.
I do know that there are those who don't have a location to go to if they do have to bug out.  In that case, more planning for the efficiency of their bug out kit is a must.  Kelee's stealth camps are a great idea. 
For me, burning or otherwise destroying anything I have to leave behind is something I would only do to deny those supplies to a clearly identified threat I don't want to supply.  Otherwise, why deny it to others who could use it.

My truck is a useful tool. When it runs out of gas, it becomes a boat anchor. I don't need any more boat anchors. I divorced 2 of them.

If somebody follows you trying to kill you , you live for him poison, if somebody follow you trying to survive like you  live him some of your food, then He will do the same.
