Will this work?

Hope this is the right place to ask this??Our new 5 er has the Sidewinder installed.I have modded the cowling to slide over the pin plate when we turn.Has anyone had trouble with it hitting the truck bed when you turn?I have measured and it looks like it will work.I can't hook me truck up for a few days to check this.Is there any other problems that may occur.Thanks for the help.

Well I got the truck out of the shop today instead of next week.Any way,the mod I did on the cowling worked great and there is about 3 " clearance on both sides while going in complete 90* turn.Just looks strange with the cowling turning and the hitch staying straight.
