Some truck manufactures do not offer a long box option on some models of trucks! So you need to buy a slider hitch of some type. I prefer the low cost model which is a manual type and weighs less. I also like the slider hitch over a Reese sidewinder; because of the Trailair King Pin box on my 34RL Cedar Creek.

I have spoke to the Cedar Creek representative. The turning radius on a Cedar Creek Hathaway is 67 degrees. So that gives you some room but not much looks like I'll be be getting a
slider. Thanks all for your input.

I would look into a Reese Sidewinder before buying a manual slider... I wish I had... https://youtu.be/zmGKdz27vqA

One last question on this topic.

I'm going to be new when it comes to towing a 5th, so I need a visual.

If the CC has a 67 perakcent turning Radius, what is standard for a TT?

I'm thinking around 45-50 percent before you hit the back bumper?

Thanks

As you make turns like 67 degrees you will be putting tremendous side pressure on the tires, no wonder the belts let go or delaminate from the rubber carcass, I have always tried not to get past 45 degrees, and going slow even that is hard on them, take a look sometime when others are backing into sites at extreme angles.

Agree. Long bed, short bed etc. Does max turning radius mean before the tires begin to scrub and not roll? Was there more description from CC on how the 67 degrees was determined?

IMO, going slow making turns is harder on the tires/suspension than going at a normal speed.

Turning Radius

I have gotten myself into a couple of situations when I had to make a 90 degree turn with my 36CKTS, with long bed truck. Leaving the cab to inspect my progress, the tires on the CC were at a very weird angle. Later inspection of the tires reveled no damage (visible obviously). I now have 7,000 miles on those tires. No wear issue. Tires look good.

The rep based this on a short bed truck using a standard non-sliding hitch.

This was based on the front cap design of the Hathaway, comparing it to the silverback that has the cut back front cap.

I know backing up it could hit the cab with a standard hitch and a short bed truck. I'm just not sure about towing forward around tight corners.

Thanks for the input.

Regards,
