trailer lights

Does anybody know if side clearance lights are needed on a 6x10 trailer? its a deck over so the wheels don't stick out.

Lighting for trailers
Your trailer must have all the following lights:
• one or more tail lights
• one or more stop lights at the rear
• red or amber turn signal lights
• side marker lights (amber at the front, red at
the rear)
• a white licence plate light
If your trailer is 2.032 m (80 in.) wide or wider, it
must also have these lights:
• amber clearance lights at the front
• red clearance lights at the back
• red identification lights at the back

Frankly if it was me, I would put them on. I have almost driven into the side of a trailer being towed down the highway when I am pulling off a side road. In the dark, a trailer with no side markers is virtually invisible. Cheap insurance.

True enough, I need to rewire my trailer so I may as well add a few side lights too. Thanks.
