I camp in state parks so I need a setup that will make short turns.
I'm looking at all options?
Doug, its amazing how many different answers you get when looking into the best pinbox/hitch setup. I am hoping my calculations are up to snuff. According to what I have read, I need to measure from the rear of the cab to the middle of the rear tires. This measurement on my truck was approximately 43". Now according to this calculation, I need 1/2 of the width of the trailer, plus 4 inches. So, I am 11 inches short. The reese 5th airborne sidewinder pinbox states that it moves the pivot point back 22 inches, and that I will have not problem turning (or hooking up) a full 90 degrees. It makes sense, I just hope they are right because this is not a cheap indeavor.
