To give myself a little more room on turns, I can lower the platform the trike sits on on the pass. side of bed as that's the wide end.. I've also removed wheel and fender for more turning......state parks are the poops here.
Its a ram just move the hitch back a foot then you are good. The goats will not know you even did that...

You might be right, but that's not according to what we were told by the 2 engineers that designed it. I don't want mine to swivel that easily. Makes it harder to hook up if you are just slightly off.

I agree on tougher hook up with a looser hitch. I am getting use to the rubber band moving and the slam to jam hitching method.
