I am with Radar on this one...

In the episode "The Most Unforgettable Characters", Hawkeye & B.J. pretend to be mad at one another as a gift for Frank's birthday, but after a short while the two of them are no longer pretending. Radar said it made him feel so sick seeing Hawkeye & B.J. arguing. I felt the same during this episode, as well as "Period of Adjustment" and "Preventative Medicine" yet whenever Hawk & Trap argued or fought, it didn't bother me at all...

I feel the same way. here's why.

Hawkeye and Trapper were friends, but that friendship was mostly around making fun of Frank, drinking, nurses, poker, and hating the war. Beyond that they weren't really that close.

B.J and Hawkeye, though, was completely different. They were the very best of friends. B.J confided in Hawkeye about "falling off the fidelity wagon" in "Hanky Panky" and writing Peg.

In "War Co-Respondent" after B.J walks into the Mess Tent when Margaret, Mulcahy, Klinger, Hawkeye and Charles were talking about what might have happened between Aggie O'Shea and B.J. He walks away in a huff, and Hawkeye follows. After a patient goes south on B.J, Hawk offers to help. After accepting it, Hawk is able to get B.J to open up about his feelings about Aggie.

There are others. None of these would've happened between Hawkeye and Trapper

As I've said before, Hawkeye and Trapper's friendship was certainly out of convenience, being two skirt-chases thrown together in a medical unit with Frank.

With Hawkeye and B.J. on the other hand, B.J. was a new recruit, fresh out of residency, didn't know what to expect, Hawkeye took him under his wing and helped him adjust to his new life that he was barely prepared for . . . unlike with Trapper, Hawkeye and B.J. actually bonded and connected with each other, which formed a deeper and more solid friendship.

Trapper and Hawkeye had a couple, but they weren't as deep and touching as those between BJ and Hawkeye. But Trapper was not as deep a character as BJ.
Two of the more touching Trapper/Hawkeye moments: when Kim's mother showed up after Trapper had started the adoption process and Hawkeye talking Trapper down from thinking about harming the North Korean (Radar's Report, maybe?).
