Dual Exhaust and Flexing

Hey I can't seem to find where, but I remember reading about dual exhausts going straight out the back being a problem with offroading and flexing. So can someone tell me if this is true or not? I'm looking at getting a dual exhaust in the future.

It can be a problem with offroading if you're approaching angle is severe enough to hit your rear bumper while going up a steep incline

if you have a hitch that hangs below the tips though that might not become an issue

But it's a pretty basic concept haha
