That depends on what the weight rating you're going for.

If you're going 14,000 dump trailer. Then I would use a PJ with the doubled up frame in a gooseneck (better spread of the weight, instead of hanging off the back). That way if you wanted to haul a excavator or something, the frame can handle the weight. My friend bought one that is bumper pulled, I can easily pull it with my truck. But I can feel the trailer pretty good.

With my fifth wheel, I have far better control and safety.

I've never heard of midsota, but I do know PJ. IMO, the PJ is a very stout and heavy duty trailer.

My question to you is...what will be you using the dump trailer for, because that plays a part in which type of trailer is better suited to your needs.

My personal preference for a Gooseneck hitch is the B&W Turnover Ball. Made in the US, simple, and easy to use.

imo i owuld go gooseneck but i prefer to pull a gn over a bumper pull anyday of the week i would second the b&w pj builds nice trailers but i found while shopping for my flatbed that big tex offers trailers of the same quality with some features i liked that the pj didn't offer and the big tex was actually about 1k cheaper for the same size trailer so i would do some close comparison and research before you buy

what you are pulling and how much of it will be a big part of it, most goosenecks are better suited behind a dually because they are bigger and can hold more weight but it can be tolerable behind a SRW. if its just some little side work type of thing with only a couple yards of material id just get a bumper pull

Gooseneck gives an amazing ride when I drove a friends truck loaded to 14k its really smooth and it is better for the frame of the truck the air bag hitch is nice you don't Evan feel the trailer running of train tracks. But like said above if your only using it a few times a month it probably is not worth the extra money for a gooseneck set up that's what stopes ms from getting one it seemed a little overkill to tow a samurai lol
