It appears you have the same cap that I do on my 2011 sabre 32bhok.
I do in fact have a slider but have yet to use it.
You can in fact turn 80° or close to it but hopfully you'll never have to.
With that being said my dw ms Amy sometimes takes the truck and camper a day ahead of me so the option of sliding the 5er makes me more comfortable when she's alone.
She's been taught to use it and when she should.
Ive only had 1 instance where ive been close to needing the slider but didnt have to.
As stated before being in those tight angles isn't good anyway.
I've found there's always more than one way to skin a cat so always look at your options before backing into questionable places.
Pull further ahead and start the backing process sooner.
Turn around and back from other direction.
Take baby steps in backing to get the truck more aligned with trailer.
In short I've never regretted buying a slider as I know sooner or later it will pay for itself in one instance.
Sabre owners united!
