There is a wiring harness available for your 2012 BMW X5 that will allow you to tow your popup camper. The ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness # 119250KIT will install in your SUV via clamps and a module that connects to your car battery to get power. This will not require you to go to your dealer for any type of programming and is a straightforward install. I recommend using mounting bracket # 18144 to keep the 4-way in place as you tow.

I also recommend checking out Ball Mount Kit # 989900, which may fulfill your towing needs in one tidy package; two ball mounts - one with a 3/4” rise or 2” drop and the other with a 2-3/4” rise or 4” drop - a 1-7/8” hitch ball, a 2” hitch ball, and a pin and clip. You can use the link to the help article on ball mounts I've added to determine if this kit will give you the correct amount of drop or rise. I've also attached links to a video review of the ball mount kit and our page with each of our ball mounts.
