We pull both our Horse Trailers and our 5er via Gooseneck. When we built our new truck we went straight to a ball under the bed (our backup/old truck had bed rails). Full bed access, no bed rails, and no hitch to remove is best. Yes I gotta climb in the bed when I hook up, but have an empty bed when I gotta fill it with product.... much better.
