Cargo Accessory kit on a Jayco flight 32 TSBH

Does anyone know if the cargo accessory hitch can be installed after the unit has been delivered? our unit was supposed to have it and now the sales rep is saying it was on the other color unit which was supposed to have all the same stuff and we are paying the same price!
If I remember correctly my husband wanted this for a bike rack for is that what its used for? Thanks for your feedback!

Not sure if this is any help at all:
Our 2015 27RLS Jay Flight HAS the frame brackets for the hitch and I did NOT order the hitch. Looking under the rear of the trailer they are easy to see.

We ordered the same trailer in late 2014 and had the same issue. When we went to look at it before taking delivery, I noticed the hitch wasn't installed. Jayco sent the hitch to the dealer to be installed.

Is this a new(er) trailer ('15 or '16)? If so, as mentioned it can be added after the fact. Just look for a bracket welded on each side to the frame at the rear of the trailer. If the dealer tells you it can't be, they are wrong as our's was added after the trailer arrived at the dealer as well!

I reccomended an hitch anti rattle kit to help keep the bike rack from bouncing. The one I bought has a u-bolt and a piece of steel that is bent on one side to secure the hitch (or in this case bike rack).

And there is only one or two bike racks rated for the rear of a rv, Swagman (I believe it is) being one.

Good luck!!!

I know this thread is about a year since last posted, but does anyone have the part number and approx. cost for the accessory? my folks have a 2015 29rks and the brackets are there, but it must be a Jayco only item as I cant seem to find it online at all. Depending on price, there is one on etrailer that may bolt up, but it is not specific to their trailer. TIA Dave

We have it on our 2015 Eagle and I believe that was the last year it was available because Jayco went to a receiver after 2015 because it does not work very well as a bike rack. From personal experience I can confirm that it works fine as a tray for firewood, Rubbermaid bin etc. but it does not work very well for bicycles because you have to jury rig tie-down straps and pool noodles between bikes to stop them from rubbing, but it will work. It also will drag on the road going up moderately steep hills in campgrounds because it is well below the rear bumper and sticks out about 2 1/2 feet.

You might want to look at getting a receiver hitch mounted to the frame of your TT, and then you can get any number of receiver hitch trays or bike racks that fit into receivers, depending on your needs.

If im not mistaken, the brackets are for the receiver? That is what I think I am looking for? A slide out tray may work for my folks situation (hoping to use it to transport a powered scooter), that might just work... Hmmm

We a 2011 33RLDS and it has the tangs on the frame for this slide out tray. I have heard bad things about the tray breaking apart where the holes are that hold it in place. These holes are where the pin goes in. Yes it is a Jayco item. I have been looking for one and I can't find one. If I could get one it would have to be modified to fix where it breaks.

This is all true as we have the pullout rear cargo tray on our '12 Eagle. I like it because it has 2 points of support and is rated to 250lbs. I know Plowtoy was referring to Jayco's frame mounted receiver hitch that they put on their trailers now so I'm wondering if there's different mounting brackets for those? If the brackets are square tubes welded/bolted to the frame, it's probably for the pullout cargo tray.

I have the cargo tray, it was an already installed option when we bought ours new. I have used it for bikes for over 6 years and it works fine and is not difficult to learn to secure the bikes w/o them rubbing with bungee cords.

After dzwiss had his break, I had mine reinforced at a welding shop just for extra security several years ago. I posted the mods in another thread.
