Pluses and minuses each way.
Long beds don't need a slider hitch, and normally have a larger fuel tank. They also tend to provide a somewhat softer ride when empty.
Short beds are easier to maneuver in parking lots and may fit in a standard garage. A slider hitch is not mandatory but a really good option.
