It all comes down to what you want and need it for. If you want to run a topper, or a hitch in the bed is a problem for you, then bumper hitchis your option. It is more sensitive to where the load sits, and cross winds will mess with you more, but there are the advantages of having the bed clear, and a smaller trailer. Otherwise, I would go with goose/fifth, just because the load dispersement to the truck is way better, the way the unit trails is better, and the backing characteristics are much more civil to deal with. Bumper hitch can be a real PITA sometimes to back.
