I didn't see a battery disconnect switch listed as a feature or option for the Vibe. Which is good as I think you can do a better job yourself. The switches they are installing on the Flagstaffs and Rockwoods, such as the Roo, are installed near the converter and are a push pull design.
I have ALWAYS installed a battery disconnect as close to the battery as possible be this with a trailer or a boat. I prefer to place it on positive.
There are many designs and models of switch. I like the Blue Sea brand because they are made for marine use. Depending on your battery(ies) you can get one that fits your needs.
This one is good with a single 12-volt or a bank of two 6-volts
