I have a trailer.
Various dealers around the country have serviced my bike, sometimes under warranty. The general consensus is that IF there is a specfic problem that MAY directly RELATE to towing a trailer BMW MIGHT not honor the warranty.
More than one dealer simply said that if it appeared to be an issue, I should (or they would) remove the hitch prior to seeking BMW approval for warranty service.
One last thing. My trailer is a Bushtec. The owners of Bushtec are very proud that BMW NA came to them when the new LT was being engineered in 1998(?) and asked them to design a hitch to compliment the bike and the suspension design. Bushtec eagerly complied. BMW and its dealers KNOW many LT owners tow, and in the case with Bushtec, they encouraged it!
