I have a 2000 american heritage 45. Cummins 500. And I tow a 2013 GMC 2500 Diesel, have towed several thousand miles this summer with no problems. GMC pickups are the best to tow. All 4 WD gm's when you put transfer case in N it also release steering lock. I use a 10,000 pound blue ox kit.

Do you use a extension or can you get 90 degree with no extension ?

No extension. I live in wv and every road is super tight. They will not hit. I have been in a lot of tight places with absolutely no issue at all. My hitch is tucked under also.

I tow an F150 4x4 and I got in a position last trip where there was not an easy way out of a gas station. The bumpers hit and I damaged the MH. I have had a new hitch made that actually sticks out a bit further and is heavier. I will still make sure I don't get into those tight situations again. If I do, the toad gets disconnected. If you need, I would suggest an extension.
