Your response may be true for your TV. The OP has a Ford and I had a 2010 CC SB with a non sliding hitch. My turn radius was a hair over 80*. Of course, it is possible that the Silverback nose cap is or was shaped differently. There are other variables as well.
Then there is the fact that we agree that you CAN tow with a SB sans slider. That was the point after all.
