Thanks for all the replies. I guess I will put it on and see how it physically looks and then I can always just add the slider if it looks like it might be tight. Better safe than sorry.

So I've had the new qbok for 3 months and made several trips in different parks and no problem. Still have good turning. I have the B & W non slider but with the support arms in the rearward most position.

I have the b&w turnover ball in my truck as well but decided to go with the pull rite slider.

I agree you probably have enough turning radius, but it only takes one slip and boom your trip is ruined and so is your truck and camper. So my thinking was, why take a chance? The pull rite auto slider is a great hitch and I have peace of mind that I won't mess anything up. There have been times at Pirateland campground in Myrtle Beach that had I not had the slider I would've tore my truck up. It's a tight campground and you have to almost jake knife to get a 42' fifth wheel backed into some of those sites. I will say it's the only place I've been that's like that but again it only takes only slip up and your back glass is busted and the front cap on your $40k trailer.

Ok. Slider it is.
Was really hoping for the Hensley, but I guess I need the slide.

Oh, and I'm in Canada....
So it's a $55k trailer. Lol

Iím amazed that so many people are able to get away without a slider. I have a 2015 Ram 3500 CC SB and my dealer told me I would definitely need a slider so I took his word for it and bought the Pullrite auto slider. I have gotten out of my truck a few times while backing up, Iím not a freaking professional truck driver OK, and even with the slider my QBOK comes alarmingly close to the cab. I do have my hitch set up about 3/4 of an inch in front of the axle center line but the hitch has 11 inches of travel.

Still no problems with my 36 and a short bed gm with a b&w companion non slider on rear setting. I wont attempt an area that is so tight where i would come close to needing a slider. Im also use to running tripple axle trailers and you cant turn them very tight without tearing something up on the trailer. Multi- point turns are your friend. Just dont try to get it all in one shot. Pride cost to much, just try it again (and again if necessary ) if its not in the right spot.

Ps. Dodges do have a crazy short clearance between rear axle and rear of cab. A slider may be a must have on them.
