Oh for sure!! My new v nose allows my truck to get 1-1.5mpg better mileage. I cuts the wind instead of acting like a wall... I wouldn't go back to a flat front trailer for nothing now.

Heres my new one.
28+3ft v

Nope the hook up the same. They just pull better because the cut the wind. Better mileage and a little more cargo space. No disadvantages that I can think of.

Put a topper on your truck and it will pull better, plus you'll have more cargo space.

If you plan on using a load distribution hitch be sure to check bar length and mounting location. I bought a set with out thinking about this and my mounting locations were behind the V section. I ended up returning them and just using a regular ball mount no biggie.

The other pro is increased turning radius without fear of hitting the truck!! A con would less interior space in the front. I do like V nose trailers though! Coach
