Front Mount Hitch

If I put my boat and carport in the place I am thinking, I will need to back up a small hill about 1/8 of a mile to put the boat away. Yes it is possible to back up but staying on the driveway rounding the curves is hard and my big truck does not turn very fast to make a correction. There is not enough room to get to the top and turn around to put the boat under the carport. My truck is a CCLB and the boat is about 25 feet total including the trailer.

Would pushing it with a front hitch work any better? Never had a front hitch before. I would think being able to see the boat vs watching it in the mirrors might make it a bit easier?

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good
