What is Spartan turning radius?

I have an Allegro Bus 43 QGP in the build on a Spartan chassis. I went to Red Bay and got a ton of photos of the dark side--everything below the floor--so I can troubleshoot later.

My question is what is the specified turning radius of the chassis? I have a graveled loop behind my house that I presently turn my 39 ft fiver around on with no trouble. It has an outside diameter of about 65-70 ft and is about 15 ft wide. I think the Bus will turn on that, but would like to be sure as I plan to take out a couple of close trees and pave it. I searched Spartan's website and must have missed the specs section. And I searched on the Spartan forum here and couldn't find anything on turning radius. Does anyone know the specs on this tag axle chassis? Also, what is the chassis identifier? I don't think I ever saw a chassis model anywhere.

The chassis specs can be found in the RV Tech Library - Home Page but they don't give turning radius, just wheel cut angle and wheelbase. It would take a geometry expert (or a call to Spartan) to figure that out. The closest I can give you regarding my 42QRP is "not that bad".

Not to steal this thread... but what a nice looking pup. We are looking for one like that now.
