Reese Slider Question

Can anyone tell me . . . If I had a Reese Slider fifth wheel hitch that had a 10 inch slide, and if I had a 2015 Ford F250 with a 6'7" bed, and if I had the Eagle HT 27.5 fifth wheel, with the Reese Slider extended 10 inches, would my RV clear my cab in a tight turn?

Both my 5th wheels can go almost 90deg without sliding my Reese 16k back. They would go 90 easy if I slide it. I have a 2500 6.5 bed

Reese Slider Question

Also in 40k miles of towing from NY to Key West, to Indiana in the last two years I have never had to slide mine.

tld,
I also have a Reese 16,000 lb dual pivot slider. It has been in 3 different trucks over the last 12 years. 2 were 6.5 ft beds and one was an 8 ft bed. All GM products. I have never yet, had to get out of the cab and release the lever to slide the plate back to be able to make a hard turn! Lucky? Probably. But, very glad I have that option! And, now that there is more travel in our future, there may come a time it will save my bacon.

You can see our 5th and TV in my signature. The hitch is a B&W non-sliding. My insurance spent $500 so I could learn that I should not make full-lock U turn.
