I also back in a TT where my drive is 90 degrees to the street and very narrow. I find that when pulling up past my drive I angle the TV and TT past my drive. To start I pull my TV all way to left just even with drive, then go forward to the right with TT past the drive. I start backing when the TT is just past the drive. This changes the angle into the drive. I hope this makes sense. Our street is very narrow with a steep ditch across from my drive. Next to drive on one side is a large tree with a fence on the other. DW watches for my so I don't clip the fence, I can see the tree with my mirrors. My trailer is 30' and it does take some practice and cannot be in a hurry. I have a WD but do not unhook it. I usaually have to make one adjustment by pulling forward toward the ditch. I was told how to do this by a truck driver. I place my bay boat into my drive the same way which is longer than my TT.

the long tongue on the boat trailer makes for easier straight line backing because the distance from the hitch to the trailer wheels is longer. The shorter the distance quicker the response, should use less space....

With my 40 foot FW and B&W slider I can go 90 degrees. One of the best hitches on the market.

Sounds like your only issue is the 90 degree turn. I had the 90 degree turn, narrow street, and 45 degree angle down the driveway. Because of the angle, I had to remove the sway control bars from the hitch. Pulled this off twice, but looking at the 'twist' the trailer was being put through, I decided a trailer storage area was my next move.
