Re: Escape 5.0's

Hokie Escape,
You have probably had this question before but do you have a standard hitch or a slider? I have the same tow vehicle and was wondering what hitch to use? Do you have to watch you turns so as not to pinch the camper against the cab?

Hi Gibby. The Frontier long bed needs only a standard hitch. And no problems with turns. I mount two 10 kayaks on the roof of my Frontier and still can make every turn. Now, I can't back it into a 90 degree angle and do that, but turning is no problem. The short bed as I understand it, would need a slider hitch. Escape Artist (Alf) has a slider on his.

Re: Escape 5.0's

Hi: 3gibby...Welcome too!!! We have a full size shortbox GMC pickup with a Husky 16 Slider hitch. It is overkill to say the least but was put in the truck B/4 the trailer. We have 4" of cab clearance on a 90* turn and I have yet to pull the slider...don't even know how it functions. I must read up on it!!! A smaller shortbox truck would be another story. Alf

Alf, how in the heck do you get anywhere, if you are taking pictures and she is not paddling?
