Kind of new to dinghy towing, but have been pulling our Jeep GC for a thousand miles or so. When the installer was reviewing the installation of our Blue Ox/Air Force set up with us, I specifically asked if there was anyway the coach and toad could hit each other on a sharp turn. His response was "probably not", but don't quote me. We have a full ladder in the back and I am thinking, while watching in the rear camera, that if I turn (lock) the wheel to the right, it will hit the front of the toad. Even without a locking turn, it seems very close. I was hoping for a more definitive answer from the installer, but didn't get one. I guess I can go into a parking lot and do my own research, but wanted to ask those folks with more experience what your thoughts were.

Thanks.

Why would you trust someone on the internet that no idea how far out your ladder is if it will hit the Jeep? Go to the parking lot and try it, then you will know for sure.

I second the above remark! It will depend upon too many things to get an answer on this forum!

Go to a large parking lot and take a spotter with you!
