Turning Radius with the V-Cross

We looked at the V-Cross Classic this past weekend and liked it. One question or concern is it looks like you would have to be very careful when making a sharp turn. If anyone has experience with the V-Cross please fill me in. Thanks in advance.

First a big to FR forums and now what exactly is your concern? You have to be very careful with any trailer when making a sharp turn for numerous reasons. Curb jumping, clipping a vehicle parked on the road side, binding the hitch.

I have a XLR, which is a v nose also. I have not noticed any change in the turning radius of the trailers I have pulled. I have pulled all kinds, sizes and lengths of trailers. Just watch it until you get comfortable.

I don't know of any vehicle with a sharp turning radius that hitting the trailer frame would be a concern going forward. Now, backing up is an entirely different matter.

Hmm... When we were looking at the V-Cross unit this weekend it seemed that the V in the frame was somewhat wider than the RV frame we have now. What I mean by that is the "V" in our current trailer where the hitch assembly is at more of a "closed in" angle that it is on the V-Cross. Also, the camper itself seems to be right on top of the ball hitch. Thanks for your help

It isn't an issue, we have a Flagstaff V-Lite which is a similar design and nothing to worry about from that standpoint at all. I think they are deceiving because of the V noses but they do turn about the same as our old flat nosed unit did.

It is really no more of an issue than with any other trailer. I have touched my rear bumper to the trailer front corner when trying to turn too sharply into a parking spot on an uphill driveway (my own) but I have been able to do that with any trailer I have owned. By the way it wouldn't have happened if I had listened to DW when she said I was turning too quickly but like always I thought what does she know when I should have been listening and not thinking.
