Thinking about it, yes it would be the same.

So then back to my other question, does anyone have any idea of the turning degree of a TT? I'm a visual person.

Thanks

I have a 2500 Dodge. Crew cab 6.5 short box with no slider. When I picked up my silverback I had the dealer jacknife it while I watched. I had 1/2" clearance at 92 degrees.I drove truck for 43 yrs. And I don't back up more than 45 deg. If needed use more pullups.

Does anyone who has a Hathaway and a short bed truck with no slider, have pictures of them backing in at max degree?

Thanks for all the input and opinions. I like this site.

As I have stated earlier, you have two choices either buy a slider hitch and not dent or break a rear window! Or buy a static hitch and hit the cab and break a rear window some time in the future.

I am towing a 34RL Hathaway edition Cedar Creek with a short bed Ram Mega Cab truck. The only time I use the slider hitch is backing into a camp site or my drive way, I don't have to worry about hitting the cab. I have a low cost Reese sliding hitch no need for an expensive slider hitch, I activate the hitch to allow it to slide and I am good to go.

I agree with Jim. I went back to read your original post and I assume you already have the Curt 24 5th wheel hitch? I can understand not wanting to buy a new hitch but the first time you bust out your rear window it will have more than paid for itself. Another option is change your Kingpin to a Sidewinder. I'm not sure if they work with a Curt hitch but if they do you can spend ~$700 for a manual slider (Reese 16K) or couple hundred more for a Sidewinder. I have the Reese 16K manual slider and wish I had the Sidewinder. It's not if, it's when..

Thanks all for you opinions and suggestions.

Looks like a slider or sidewinder is in future before I get the trailer.

Need to budget for it now.

I have a Silverback and a short bed with a 6.5 foot bed. No slider. The silverback you will never need a slider.

Have you tested that? I have intentionally backed until I could back no more before I hit. I can't do more than May 75-80 degrees... might want to do a test..
