Pin Location on Escape 5.0

Does anyone know the dimension from the back of the cab to the pin location on the Andersen hitch for a 5'-6" Bed F-150? I "think" it ends up being about 2" behind the axle?

Escape Trailer refuses to tell me where they mounted their's on their short bed F150. Zero help.

Frustrating!!!! You would think since they have this setup they would want to help potential customers know what the turning/backing angles would be.

Thanks!

I went through hundreds of posts when getting my rig set up and I could not find a consensus on what works best.

See my post at:

Have you seen Escape's E5.0 towing compatibility guideline document, linked from the Escape 5.0 page? Turning angle information is on page 6.
