I agree with you that the Silverbacks are different than Cedar Creeks; but it happens any way. I nailed my cab when towing a 318SAB Cougar which is very similar to the Silverback front cab design with recessed corners. Cougars advertise that they have the patented 88 deg turning ability. Guess what one moment is all it takes.

We have a GMC 2500HD crewcab with standard bed to pull our 2015 Silverback 33IK. I transferred a Pullrite super glide hitch from my previous truck when I was pulling a Wildcat. Both Truck, Silverback and hitch are an excellent combination. I have had to turn almost 90 degrees to back in a camping spot. I do not look at the nose of the RV when I am backing to see how close it gets to the back window. Your choice. Glad you like your 33IK. Our 33IK had only two minor adjustments after delivery (recliner and door). Excellent quality in our unit.

With the Super Glide you will need a special plate attached to the bottom of your hitch. You also have to be within 10 degrees of straight back to hitch and unhitch. I have been more than 10 degrees off and you can not hitch or unhitch. Just a couple of things to consider.

PS. We ordered our Silverback 33IK with the TrailAir hitch and it rides very well on our Pullrite slider hitch.

I wish I would have had the trailair installed, fixing to add that one on in about a month.
