Default Vision trailer wiring ?

Just bought a trailer for my Vision... before I looked up what a hitch was gonna cost
Anywho, I see that bushtec has a relay kit. Looking at my tail lights on the vision, there's no pair of lights to tap into. Top and middle pair are run/turn but middle/bottom are run/brake while the middle pair goes out for brakes while turn signalling. That make sense ?
so there's a hitch doc fer $300 and a bushtec fer $450 plus another $90 fer the wiring kit.
and I thought a hitch was gonna be reasonable since for less than half that you can put a class 1 on a truck..
Then after reading some other posts, I recently put on a car tire (195) that some say will rub , need to put on a 185mm.

May be a little late now but I run a bushtec hitch on my Ness Vision. I discovered that a 195 WILL NOT RUB on a bushtec hitch. All the reports of those that do rub apparently have a hitchdoc hitch. Just FYI now I guess.

Have yet to find out as it's still on my kitchen table.
Been meaning to put it on but have also been repainting my trailer which is in mid stream

I haven't put 5 miles on this yet. Kind of a candle in the wind idea as a few things I was anticipating fell through. Wanting to carry guitar gear so as to not 'have to' take the cage if/when I play out.
Still have fun with a small project like this. Taking it apart, making it nicer then putting it back together.
I did just buy a new 2015 Chevy Traverse so it's not like I don't have room for 'stuff'.
