I have a 33IK and tow with a shortbox 2500 HD crew cab high country, I don't have a slide hitch either, can I go 90 degrees "no" but I would never do that anyway because it puts more stress on the trailer than I want it take. It tows beautifully and I use A BD3 air ride hitch from Hensley.

We have a 2019.5 33IK and tow it with a shirt bed Ram 2500 and Andersen Ultimate hitch. We've had no problems and do not anticipate any. I certainly could turn tight enough for the trailer and truck to hit, but I don't see the need to do that.

I think that for the small amount of towing that you will be doing, a short bed truck backed with situational awareness should do you fine.

We have a 2018 gmc with 6'-8" bed and use the Andersen hitch and love it, have over 12,000 miles with it. in your case, the need to hook up quickly in some cases you would love the Andersen. 5 min all by yourself and the hitch is in the truck. No problem with turns just go slow and watch when going really tight.

I have been pulling my Silverback 31RK with a Silverado 3500HD 6.5 bed for a couple of years now. I am also using an Anderson Hitch. I love the set up and have never had a problem.
Good Luck

Hire a truck for the few moves. Why insure and maintain a 2500 series when not being used. Waste of $$. Look for someone in your campground or close by that you can RELY on when the need arises.

Tow Cecile question

Like Jim in Florida, I tow with a duramax 6 1/2 ft bed. I use the Andersen with no clearance problems.

We were at fort wilderness over the weekend. They gave us a (difficult) back In site. We never came close to touching.

Shortbed Ram diesel. Anderson Ultimate. Easy everything.

Hitting the cab is careless. You should never turn that much. It is not necessary. Means you goofed up early.

Your fiver has a nice sculptured nose. The Anderson works.

Putting in a full puck system with one of those revolution types is a neat option.

The 6’ 5” cabs are hard enough to park. You do not need a long bed.
