Anyone with ACTUAL experience pulling trailer with R1200RT?

I posted this over on the BMWST site, but thought I'd try here, too:

I've seen the UniGo posts, but haven't been able to find any good information about pulling a 2-wheeled trailer with the RT. We're considering some extended trips, and want to at least consider the option of pulling a trailer rather than traveling so light. We have several other activities we like to do, such as hiking; hard to cram it all in the bags and top box and still have room for a change of clothes. The idea is to get somewhere we want to be for a few days, unhook, ride, hook the trailer back up, go somewhere else, repeat.

I am not particularly worried about the power or the brakes, although I'd sure like experiences about them. Switz brought up a good point in an email; he'd be concerned about trailer-related side-loads (I had to look it up) and the dread FD issues with the RT.

So, if you've actually pulled a trailer WITH AN RT, or have actual Big Brain facts or theories, I'd appreciate your comments.
