I personally like a dovetail trailer. Mainly because I haul a lot of lowered Honda's and it is easier. With my flat bed trailer I have to drive my trucks rear tires up on car ramps to get the rear of the trailer down and the front bumper still hits a little. However with my Toyota it doesn't matter. I just leave it in 4wd and drive up with no ramps. But if you break your truck and don't have a winch it is a little harder to push the truck on the trailer because the ramps are steeper.
