Unfortunately, in most cases, EVEN IF the owner's manual says it's ok, the best thing to do if purchasing a new vehicle, is to have the dealership write a letter to you stating that your intention is to flat tow your vehicle per the instructions in the owner's manual and that doing so will NOT void any warranty. Have it signed by an officer of the dealership, NOT just the sales person. That way if later there are problems, and the manufacturer won't honor the warranty, than your dealership is still on the hook for the warranty.
On a side note, if they won't give you a letter, than move on, either to a different vehicle, or to a different dealership.
