ATV Carrier Clearance

I'm thinking about purchasing a "Diamond Back" ATV carrier. It has the ability to load two ATV's from the side with an extension off the rear approx 12". My question is; has anybody used one of these while pulling a Sunset Trail? Will there be clearance for turns?

I've reached out to the manufacturer and hope to hear from hem tomorrow.

Here's a photo of a similar set up:

Steve, Maybe you could hook up and go to a big parking lot and make a sharp turn and stop mid turn and measure 12" back from the rear of the truck bed rail above the tail light or hang a broom stick 12" off the rail and that should you the clearance when turning.
