New truck?

I am buying a new (used truck) and was curious as to what the opinions are about the box trucks with the dovetail beds as opposed to a regular pick up and trailer. One positive I thought of was it would be harder to vandalize or steal eqmt in a box truck with the dovetail. I appreciate any feedback

I'll stick with my truck and trailer, so many more options with a truck and trailer. You most likely can't haul a bob-cat in a box truck, and bagging grass with a box truck would be a whole new ballgame. Where as with my truck and trailer, I could pull the bobcat on my trailer as well as have my grass on my trailer or in my truck bed. Just my 02
