    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.
