With my setup, it looks a bit tighter clearance than it really is. When we first installed I took it over to the local parking lot and had my son spot while I tried some very tight turns. No interference, and I have since been able to back into some fairly tight spots without issue.
My setup is probably a worst case as well. The Thule CrossTrack rack is actually fairly long. You can probably find a rack with a shorter arm; I just like the quality of the Thule racks.
I have seen folks with the full Arvika setup here and it sits much closer to the TT, but it is more expensive, and requires an additional adapter to car mount the trailer rack.
I ordered mine from Racks For Cars out of Western Canada. They ship to the US, and with the really great exchange rates, your US$ goes a long way. The 2" receiver is currently on special for C$299 (US$230).

Note that Stromberg Carlson makes a similar item that is available on Amazon; but from the reviews it seemed pretty sketchy, so I stuck with the Arvika and am happy. Very heavy duty and well put together, installation was a bit if a headache with my under tongue spare, but for most other trailers it should be a breeze.
