oh ok, i was off there! never really pulled bumpers. had a 24' bumper trailer for a little bit years ago and it was the worst trailer. the wheelbase must have been a lot farther back

The longer wheel base on a truck will make it easier to control the trailer. So like a reg. cab truck with a 5' box is not as good as a extended cab truck with a 5' foot bed. Cause the extended cab truck is the same in length as a reg. cab 8' bed truck. Its depends on preference of cab size. Id get extended cab cause id like to put some extra stuff in the cab as in riding stuff.
