Towing vehicle no steering lock

I want to pull my GMC Acadia behind my 35’ Class A motorhome and realized that the steering on the Acadia doesn’t lock. Does this matter when it is being pulled or does the Acadia just follow the motorhome. I’m afraid that the front wheels could turn.

What stops the front tires from steering to the right out left if the steering column doesn’t lock

The Toad follows the motor home if you make a left hand turn the toad will follow, and will follow when you go straight once more. If you had a steering wheel lock. Than you would drag those front tire an ruin them in short order

If you read enough on the forums you will find the tire sales folks get business from those that lock the steering wheels flat towing

You do lock the steering wheels on a swivel plate dolly however
