Can Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel Hitch Hook Up to a Trailer at a 45 Degree Angle


The information I have read states that to hook/unhook your trailer from this Autoslider hitch that you must stay within a 0 to 15 degree angle. Where I store my camper i have to back in with the truck being on about a 45 degree angle. This hitch seems to be the perfect hitch for my application except for the angle limitations. Is there a way to be able hook/unhook this hitch from a trailer at this angle?

The issue with the angle restrictions on Demco 5th wheel hitch # DM8550035 is the auto-sliding feature. In order for it to engage/disengage properly when hooking up/unhooking it can only be at the 0 to 15 degree angle. A manual slider such as the Curt A20 # C16541 would be a better option.
