Whenever we tow anything the rope is just under tension, I've never worried about it snapping.

I got a Series 3 Landy pulled out of a ditch with 14mm 3 strand rope, the rope was fine, it did stretch but then the Landy pinged out.
If you have any concerns wrap some other rope around it so it breaks the whip effect.
