Recommendation for Carrying Generator on Back of Jayco Lite Trailer


recommended TT hitch for 2013 Jayco lite to carry a generator approximate weight 300 pounds?


Expert Reply:

For your 2013 Jayco Lite Trailer, I recommend looking at the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13703. This adjustable trailer hitch is designed specifically for RVs and trailers like what you have and will fit frame widths of 22 to 71 inches. It can be bolted to the frame or welded on for a no-drill application. It will provide you with a 2 inch receiver opening and it has a 350 pound tongue weight capacity.

I have attached an installation video on this product that you can use for reference.

Since the combined weight of any cargo carrier and your 300 pound generator will be pushing the limits of this hitch and likely your Jayco, another option I recommend looking at is the Stromberg Carlson Trailer Tray Cargo Carrier # CC-255. This sturdy carrier is designed to mount directly to A-frame trailer tongues and provides a 300 pound weight capacity that works great for generators. The tray measures 32 inches long and 20 inches wide. It will fit trailer frames that are 3-1/2 inches to 6-1/2 inches tall.

I have attached a short video demonstration on this carrier so you can see exactly how it works.
