This is what I found as the definition of "stinger steer"

"Stinger-steered" in relation to a combination of vehicles means that the coupling device on the power unit is located back of the tread of the tires of the last axle. [2001 c.574 2]

If that's the case, would it not handle the same as a rear mounted trailer hitch?
