It all depends on the turning radius of truck and the length of the trailer I bet most would hit. Take your unit into a mall parking lot and cut it all the way and let me know. As for me I know if I tried that on mine it just may and the stress on the trailer and ties would be great and on my semi the sleeper would hit please you take the chance of twisting the trailer and dragging the ties and getting flat spots

I would love it if I could make a 180 deg. turn! As it is I'm limited to about 85deg.

As anyone else have dents in the back of their truck and not know how or where they came from, now you know.
Don't make u turns, and when you do, look first, if the area is to small to make your turn at 60 deg. In a big circle then go somewhere else.
