100+ ft seems like a long way to go get wet! And for that kind of distance, and a draft deep enough to cause problems for the truck, chains make sense. So long as there is equal tension on the chains, I'd think it shouldn't be too, too bad - just go slowly enough to keep control and not get the trailer slanted or sideways.
For the rest of us who, hopefully, hit deep enough water before the truck submerges, extension bars should do.
I like the idea of a pull out bar from alongside or underneath the main bar - makes it difficult to lose, and is somewhere to stow it. Chain just gathers up into a locker or bag, of course.
