I would be happy to help!

To determine which trailer hitch receiver will fit your 2012 Jayco Featherlite TT you will need to measure the width of your frame.

If your frame is between 18" - 51" then I recommend the Curt Adjustable Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13701 which has a 500lb tongue weight rating which would be perfect for carrying a cargo carrier or bike rack.

If your frame is wider than 51" then you will need the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs # 13703 which fits frames 22" - 72" wide and has a tongue weight rating of 350lbs.

With either of these options you will want to reach out to Jayco to determine how much tongue weight the trailer frame can support and use the lower rating between the trailer and hitch.

If you are planning on carrying a bike rack I recommend taking a look at the Swagman Original - 4 Bike Rack for 2" Trailer Hitches # S64400 which is rated for use on the back of a travel trailer, and can accommodate 4 bike weighing up to 35lbs each.

Keep in mind that you cannot use just any bike rack, as there is quite a bit more movement on the back of a travel trailer that can cause a standard bike rack to fail. Any accessories used need to be rated for use on a travel trailer.

I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
