I only favor a lower profile that will clear the road when going up a steep driveway, or deep dip. The angle may not need to be so abrupt, but I have scraped my Receiver before.I think you are close at 18". Maybe even 12 ". My drawing pulls back way more than needed. I did check forward of the receiver, and it is clear for the tail mount bar to stick through at least a foot without hitting anything under the car. The tail mount bar will be removable, I only plan to use the tail for long highway trips, and I feel a latch and hinge is not as safe as a pin secured mounting bar.
