I will begin with the warning: I dont know.

But, that said, the trailer comes with lights and a harness, right?

What does that harness require?  I'll wager ground and several hot  
- brakes
- left turn
- right turn
- running lights

It seems that those could all be paralleled with the existing ones.  
Fuse and wiring should be Ok, we're talking small amounts of current  
I would imagine.

In any event, i think you work backwards by first asking "what does  
the trailer require" - then figuring out how to supply that  
conveniently and without over-taxing any systems.
