You will want to use a 6-Pole Square Trailer Wiring Connector Kit # 37995, a Hopkins Endurance 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector # HM48110 and a Curt 2 to 3 Wire Tail Light Converter # C56196 to create a custom wiring adapter.

First you will want to use a Test Light # PTW2993 to test your wiring of the 05 Bunkhouse Motorcycle Camper. This will help you to determine which wires will connect to what on your 4-way connector or the converter.

You will need a Curt 2 to 3 Wire Tail Light Converter # C56196 to separate the lights from the vehicle to the camper in the adapter. This is needed as the 4-way combines the signals with the brake lights and your trailer has them separated.

The Hopkins Connector # HM48110 has a black and yellow wire for the left turn signal/brake, a black and green wire for the right turn signal/brake, a black and brown wire for the running lights and a black and white wire for the ground connection.

The black and green wire from the 4-way will attach to the green wire labeled Right Side Stop and Turn on the converter.
The black and yellow wire from the 4-way will attach to the yellow wire labeled Left Side Stop and Turn on the converter.
The black and brown wire from the 4-way will attach to the running lights wire on your 6-way.
The black and white wire from the 4-way will attach to the white wire labeled Ground on the converter as well as the ground wire on the 6-way.
The green wire from the converter labeled Right Turn will go to the right signal wire on the 6-way.
The yellow wire from the converter labeled Left Turn will go to the left signal wire on the 6-way.
The red wire from the converter labeled Stop will go to the stop signal wire on the 6-way.
