On a long straight road like we have here, no problem.
On bending roads up and down hills then no.
I turn it of when approaching Perth hills.
But from Kalgoorlie to Northam 500km almost completely straight flat road then on cruise.
With cruise on I am more alert less tiered the without it.
Like all things they have their place and time.
Ah, I didn't realize you were in OZ and covering long stretches of flat, desolate highway, I suppose I owe you an apology as you seem to understand then it's appropriate, not all drivers do!
I was thinking more about the idiots I see pulling double rigs on US interstates running 2 car lengths behind other vehicles at 70+ mph, it's truly scary and there are dozens if not hundreds of deadly wrecks each year here in the US caused by distracted drivers, professional or recreational. I've personally witnessed the aftermath, it will change you outlook.
I still don't think cruise and recreational towing are compatible but YMMV
