i bet if you guys would get your tow car rolling it would be fairly easy to turn over trying to turn it setting still.

I agree that a rolling vehicle will steer much easier.  However, I recently stayed behind a Country Coach pulling a Jeep identical to mine and I was familiar with the area and I knew that he'd be making a sharp right or left turn in the near future.  We were on blacktop. 

As he turned onto the main highway I watched as his front steering wheels turned a little to follow the rear of the RV; but he literally drug the Jeep on around the turn.

It is like bending a wire over and over; metal fatique sets in.

Congrats Dick on your new PC!  And thanks again for sharing the tow vehicle failure.  I will tighten up my Roadmaster hardware next oil change.
