Do you have to worry about hitting the back window going forward or is the turning degree limited by the tow vehicle?

Thanks,
The turning degree is not limited by anything. If you turn sharp enough going forward you could possibly hit the rear of your cab. Most probable if you have a short bed truck. Look into the Reese Sidewinder.

I will be buying a 3500 Chevy which has a 6.5' bed.

So I'm hoping i won't have issues going forward.

When you say sharp turns going forward, how sharp?

Let pulling onto a side street?

Thanks,

Isn't a 6.5' bed a short bed? No, not turning a corner typically. The problem is you're going to have to back up sometime to put that puppy in a campsite and they can be tight at times.... Rear windows only cost $1000 to $2000 to replace depending how bad the supporting metal is bent. Good luck...

Short bed

I have had 2 fifth wheels with my 2008 Dodge 2500 short bed diesel. 73000 miles and only one issue and that was prior to the new radius caps.

We have a 2015 Silverback 33rl,. It's 36 ft snd some.
Pulls great and I have never used my slide AGAIN since buying this unit. We get into very tight spots at beach or woods locations with no issue.

Cannot envision a need for the slide. I guess if you parked along side of your home and had to go past jacknife, maybe you should move 😂.

Travel and enjoy.

In the OP they said they were getting a Cedar Creek with the rounded front and not the Silverback that does not have the cutback in the corners... I have no experience there. I can turn about 80 degrees with my Silverback. Not sure about the cap of the OP...

Before I bought a long bed truck and all that comes with the longer length I would investigate a Sidewinder pin box. Cost ~$1000 and is automatic.
