New option for 2015

I notice that there is a new option for the 2015 Jay Flight. It is a Cargo accessory receiver. Does anyone have this option? I was wondering how it is attached to the trailer. Also wondering if it could be added to a 2014.

Thanks ... Tim

It is bolted to flanges that are welded and stick down below the frame.

I just saw a thread about this last week. Someone was asking about the cargo receiver and was told to search for a very specific video online to see it. Basically it is a rack that slides under the trailer. When you need it, you slide it out and its a pretty big surface with a 225 or 250 lbs rating. There is an arm that sticks up to hold bikes, or a decent size floor to hold a grill or coolers or whatever else. If you search for "cargo receiver", you should find that thread and then can look for the video.

It looks like a great idea. When I go to the Hershey show next month, I'll have to measure the ground clearance. That's the only concern that I have, as I have a steep and narrow driveway.

Thanks spoon059 but this is something different. What was offered last year was a Bike rack/cargo tray system. This is a Cargo accessory "RECEIVER". I would imagine its a 2" receiver of some kind. I am interested in what it looks like, how it attaches and can it be added to 2014.

From what I have seen, I believe it's welded between the I beams, not bolted.

I don't see why you can't add one, I did it to both my 26BH and 29QBH. Just had a custom hitch shop fabricate and attach it. The recent one cost right at $300 and I think the previous was close to $250.

We are very happy with ours. Use it for either a 4 bike swagman carrier or cargo tray, depending on the trip. I had the factory Bike/Cargo carrier, it did not meet my needs so I took it off and gave it away.

From what I have seen in videos of the 2015's, they were calling it a receiver but it was the cargo tray. I might be wrong though. I find it fascinating that Jayco calls the same thing multiple names. I was looking at the options list and in one package they refer to the rear roof ladder as a "rear ladder", but when it is available as a stand alone option it is a "roof ladder". The picture they provide for both names is the same stock picture...

From looking at different dealer photos of trailers with this option it definitely looks like a 2 inch receiver. For conformation I have emailed Jayco to see what they say.
