Hello Guys,

I maybe in the market for a new trailer for my business and toy hauling.

I currently have my truck set up with air bags and my 7k trailer with weight distributing hitch with e brakes.

My current trailer weighs 2200lbs empty.

I am looking at a new trailer which will be at least an aluminum 7-10k trailer with brakes which only weighs 1800lbs empty.

But I have thought about a gooseneck or 5th wheel with bed sliding hitch.

I think the truck will pull one these easier than a bumper pull.

But the down side is loosing all the covered bed space that my undercover lid and bed has to offer.

Any Ideas or opinions please?

I dont pull a gooseneck with my frontier (altho, I have considered it), but I have pulled with the 3500 Gen2 Dodge at work.
If you ever pull a gooseneck trailer, you will not want to go back to a bumper pull.
The other side of pulling a gooseneck, it puts all the weight over the axle instead of three feet behind the axle. Depending on how your tagged and local laws, you may be able to haul up to axle limit instead of gvwr depending on tagging and laws.
