RE: ShortBed vs. LongBed

I am also looking for a new truck and have been pondering the long bed vs.
short bed decision.  I have heard some people say you cannot pull a
gooseneck trailer with a short bed and others say you can, but it has to be
mounted EXACLTY right in the bed so as not to hit the cab of the truck.
Haven't had a chance to talk to any trailer manufacturers yet.

I'd appreciate any input on whether it matters on an extended cabtruck
(3/4t - powers not the issue) if the bed is long or short.  I have a
gooseneck V-nose trailer.  Have always used an 8ft. long bed  ext. cab
truck.  Would a 6 1/2ft. short bed (ext. cab) present any problems?  IE-
would manuevering to avoid hitting the rear window or other driver-error
( type hazards become much more of  factor with 1 1/2' less bed?
