I had heard about using a bungee cord some time ago, but thinking about it, if the steering wheel turned more than 180 degrees and flipped the cord over "top dead center" wouldn't it then work against the steering wheel returning to the straight ahead position?

That said, I think if your vehicle's wheel alignment is in good order I could see no need for it.

If you're driving your toad and you take your hands off the steering wheel does your steering go immediately to the extreme right or left??? If it does you need a bungie cord when towing!

bldrbob, I too have experienced this, only once,
while doing a full lock turn on dirt while towing my Suzuki Samurai. Front tires on Samurai dug into dirt and went full lock to left. I was able to see this in the rear view mirror, and stopped. Got out straightened steering wheel on toad, and away we go. Never a problem on highway.

Good grief! If that happens you need a lot more than a bungie cord! Like maybe a wheel alignment or new toad. (I know by your jester icon you are only kidding.)

This was the case on pre-power stering cars. My dad was a tow truck driver, I would see him do this many times.
