Hi CR,

Is your towbar self adjusting or fixed?

I understand self adjusting to mean that the lengths of the towbar sides
adjust to compensate for small misallignments when connecting between
the tow-er and tow-ee vehicles. 

If fixed, what are your opinions of the difficultly in getting things
lined up?

Sorry, but I'm not sure how towbars work. I assume they are not
connected to the steering in amy way? Are the wheels free to turn and
follow the towcar's path or do you lock them straight?
