Hidden Cross Tube for a Clean, Factory Look

The EcoHitch Hidden front-mount trailer hitch is designed to be as inconspicuous as possible. The hitch's cross tube bolts onto your vehicle's frame. No drilling or welding is required. Once the hitch is installed, only the receiver will be visible. This means that your vehicle can maintain its stylish, from-the-factory look, and you won't have to do any major modifications to its body or frame.

Eco-Friendly Material

With a combination of aerospace-grade aluminum, steel, and stainless steel, each EcoHitch is made of a strong metal alloy that will withstand the test of time. The lightweight alloy is composed of recycled materials. Traditional steel hitch manufacturing can use coal or oil, which can contribute to harmful gas emissions. The EcoHitch's recycled materials limit the carbon footprint during manufacturing, so you get a sturdy trailer hitch while also helping the environment.

Rigorous Strength Testing Ensures Durability

This EcoHitch trailer hitch is tested for durability and sturdiness. Using Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA), individual points of stress on the hitch can be detected and remedied. Designers can accurately test the hitch to ensure that it will meet or exceed SAE J684 standards. The EcoHitch Hidden trailer hitch is carefully researched and strength tested for a durable, high-quality hitch that can resist damage while on the road. Technical Support

At we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch.

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Let me start by saying this is not the first front receiver I've purchased from etrailer all my trucks get front receivers for winches. This time though the box shows up on time but the corner is blown open and the receiver is hanging out. Also the bag of bolts has been ripped open and half the bolts are loose in the open box but to my surprise after counting everything, they were all there.spray foam packing would have mitigated all that. Moving on. Went to install the receiver and the end mounting plates are 1/4 inch too tight. Won't fit the frame rails. Had to spread each side 1/8 out with a Hydraulic bottle jack. Apparently using a jig during the manufacturing process is optional these days. After all that I finally got it to fit good. It looks good and the welds seem adequate. I think it could have been installed in an hour by myself if not for having to "adjust" it but was still done in under 2 hours.

2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Mounted the EcoHitch hidden front mount trailer hitch on 2011 Ford F 250 with a Ranch Hand Grill Guard. The Ranch Hand uses two of the same holes as the EcoHitch's four mounting holes. Getting the pieces lined up is a bit of a challeng although no modifacations were necessary.If I have the need to do it again I would let an installation shop do it. etrailer's customer service and commuication are excellent, shipping time and delivery were very fast.

2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty

I've not opened the box yet. However I'll be surprised if all the nuts and bolts are inside. It sounds like the hitch was placed in a box built for something much larger. Then all attachments just tossed in. I will be attempting to install it next weekend so we'll see.

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Good afternoon , Just opened the box and was sent a Hollywood rack model # HR 1700 could someone please contact me on getting the ordered item and returning the incorrect item.

Oh my goodness. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.


The EcoHitch arrived sooner than expected and was packed well. All parts were present. The installation was quick and easy with a helper and the use of two jacks. The hitch fit perfectly ang was great quality. Very pleased for mounting my winch


Very heavy made hitch. Pleasure to purchase quality U.S made product. Shipping, communication, and follow through was outstanding.


Arrived with all necessary parts and fit perfectly. The wire for fishing the bolts worked perfectly. So far so good. Didn’t take pictures of hitch itself but my winch is where I wanted it and did by myself in around 90 minutes.

2016 Ford F-350 Super Duty

This product came to us exactly as advertised!
All the hardware was included and the instructions were clear as can be.
I did a solo installation in under two hours without removing the bumper.
Highly recommend etrailer


Use it for an extra cooler when heading out west for hunting to throwing a hitch winch on there when the weather gets bad. Perfect fit

2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty

The delivery was delayed for two days because of damages to the packaging. When it was finally delivered, the box was still damaged despite the many patches of cardboard and tape. In addition most of the hardware was missing and the license plate carrier was bent. Notified etrailer the same day + pictures

2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty

I installed by myself with jack and pri-bar, the only thing I found out was it was 2 person job but 1 can do with truck on rack or on a lift.
No problems working great and would install again if needed.


This is exactly the product I needed to extend the hitch on my tent trailer. Now I can open the tailgate without unhitching the trailer.


Works as hoped and nearly invisible when not in use, i.e. just as a license plate holder. I'm now able to get my trailers into much tighter spots with greater ease and some spots that would be completely impossible otherwise no matter your experience level. I had hoped to also use it for a bicycle rack while towing an RV but the obstruction of bikes in front field of view wasn't acceptable. Had to get a custom weld job of 2" receiver on RV back frame for that. Installation was difficult but manageable with the kit that is supplied. The wires for fishing through bolts are ingenious and critical to installation. I only subtracted one star because the width was off just a bit. Enough to where I had to use a small sledge to slightly reshape one end to get it to fit. Obviously you want a snug fit, but without the sledge, there's no way it was going in that space. Other than that, one other piece of constructive feedback, shipping was crap. Maybe pony up for a better shipper? Item had several scratches and a couple gouges. Small parts bag had been torn open and a few pieces escaped through the gaping holes in the cardboard box. But etrailer made it right. Sent replacements for missing parts and covered cost of a can of paint to touch up the damage. Something this beefy is still perfectly useable with scratches and even a couple gouges. Paint was just for rust/corrosion concerns since the scratches removed the finishing coat. Shipping cost to return/replace entire unit was understandably not worth it for anyone concerned. Overall, very satisfied with product and etrailer customer service.

Im sorry to see that your hitch has received some scratches on it due to shipping. This does tend to happen and when it does, we recommend using a Rust-oleum type paint to cover up any scratches and prevent corrosion in the future during use. I have a link below for your reference. I have also sent this information over to our Customer Service Department for them to get into contact with you.

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Nice product. Install was easy and it looks great.

2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Wow, what a kit! Instructions were clear and the fitment was perfect!


The package arrived on time and in good condition. All the hardware was present. I would have liked to have maybe 2 more of the bolt fish wires as they get very stretched when you undo them and they get stuck the bolt hole.



It’s still perfect. I use it often to help position our travel trailer.

2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Hitch is very sturdy and well built but holes did not line up on drivers side and needed to be redrilled in frame for hitch to be mounted. Also hitch seemed a little narrow and had to use jack to wedge it between the frame rails with a lot of help from a really big hammer to get it in place.


Fit great on my F450 you should update the info to include this modle


Installed this myself. Not too bad for one person. The hitch is heavy and it fit perfectly. eTrailer is a prime example of excellent customer service. Everyone I've dealt with has been incredible. Knowledgeable and helpful. Great product great company!


have not had a chance to install it yet


Very fast at responding and delivering my hitch after I ordered the wrong one the first time. It is my second one I have ordered from etrailer and won't be my last.

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Super easy install on my 2016 F250 Platinum. The little tools included for fishing the bolts through the frame are ingenious! I saved them in case I need them for other projects.


This product is perfect for my needs, well built and solid. Had some issues in shipping (not with e-trailer) called e-trailer customer service (had to call twice due to 2 UPS screw ups) and I must say the best CS experience I have had with any company!!!

2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Great product, easy solo install about 3 hrs w/ 'piddle time'. Best part I did not have to remove my bumper. Raised hitch up into place w/ 2 floor jacks.


The hitch arrived with a hole in the box and only the hitch. No bolts, license plate holder, instructions or anything else. Called retailer and they shipped the parts out without question. Really like the hitch. You can’t tell it is there. Doesn’t impact ground clearance and seems to be very solid

    When installed, the EcoHitch # EH59FR front receiver will sit in the middle of the front bumper, between the tow hooks as shown in the photo I've provided for you. With the receiver sitting in the middle of the bumper, you won't need to worry about sacrificing front ground clearance or approach angle like you would with the other hitch options available.

  • Will the EcoHitch EH59FR Fit a 2016 F-250 With a SteelCraft Brush Guard?
    From what I could find out about where your SteelCraft brush guard installs, there doesn't look to be a way to get a hitch installed as well. The EcoHitch # EH59FR will install in the exact same place so it would need to be one or the other, unfortunately. I also checked the other options we have for a front mount hitch on your 2016 F-250, but they all install in the same place as well.

  • What Does EcoHitch Front Hitch EH59FR Weigh and Does it Count Against Capacity of Vehicle
    The actual weight of the EcoHitch front hitch part # EH59FR is 57 lbs. The good news is that the weight of hitches does not count against the vehicle's weight capacity since essentially the hitch becomes part of the vehicle chassis and is not a hitch accessory that gets supported by the hitch.

  • EcoHitch 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty Front Hitch Receiver Vertical Load Limit
    The EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver item # EH59FR for your Ford F-250 Super Duty has a 1000 lbs vertical load limit which is equivalent to a rear hitch receivers tongue weight. You would want to make sure the mighty hauler and motorcycle don't exceed the 1000 lbs weight capacity. You will also need to make sure that your F-250 can handle that much weight.

  • Best Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty Diesel w/ Stabilizer Bars
    Thanks for the picture! I have a solution for you but it does look like your dual steering stabilizer bars will be in the way for you to mount the Draw-Tite Front Hitch item # 65049. Instead you will want to use the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver item # EH59FR which mounts upwards instead of hanging below. The 2" x 2" receiver would then extend out behind your license plate. The EcoHitch is a far better choice. This front hitch has a more concealed look and won't effect...

  • Max Line Pull From Side for EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver
    I reached out to EcoHitch and they only tested the # EH59FR for straight line pull. More than likely the capacity remains at 10,000 lbs within a certain range side to side and up and down, much like the Curt # C31018 which also fits your 2014 F-350. Unfortunately, EcoHitch did not have that information available. If you look at the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch, it has a line pull of 9,000 lbs. This is maintained with a 45 degree angle left or right from straight ahead, and a 15 degree...

  • Correct Front Mounted Receiver for Moving 788 lb Tongue Weight Trailer With 2015 Ford F-350
    Tongue weight and vertical load both refer to the maximum amount of downward force a hitch can safely withstand. This capacity is expressed as tongue weight capacity when speaking of a rear hitch or vertical load limit when discussing a front mounted receiver. Different terms for the same exact thing, in other words. Because the trailer's tongue weight is 788 lbs, you'll without a doubt want to go with the EcoHitch # EH59FR which has a 1000 lb vertical load capacity, versus the 500 lb...

    While we have an option for you, from the photos I've seen, the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # EH59FR looks to extend ever so slightly past the tow hooks.

  • Front Hitch for Carrying Bikes on Front of 2014 Ford F350
    We do indeed offer front mounted receivers for your 2014 F-350 DRW. The hitch you need will depend on whether your rig is a 2WD or 4WD. The EcoHitch # EH59FR works with either the 4x2 or 4x4 model. The Curt # C31038 fits 4x4 models only. Due to the lower cost, I'd go with the Curt model if you have the 4x4 model.

  • Recommended Front Mount Receiver Hitch for 2016 Ford F-350
    Although it mounts to the sides of the front frame members instead of the tow hooks, the EcoHitch # EH59FR front mounted receiver would install so that the receiver tube sits behind the license plate holder. The Curt # C31018 and Draw-Tite # 65049 would both install so the receiver tube sits below the bumper which reduces ground clearance, approach angle and would require that the front fascia/air dam be trimmed, so even though it won't bolt to the tow hook mounts, the EcoHitch option would...

This way you will not need to purchase separate mounting brackets or verify if that particular kits mounting brackets are going to be compatible as different manufacturers will use different brackets.

    I can understand not wanting to remove the brush guard on your 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty, but unfortunately there are no front mounted hitches that can fit with the guard, because like you said, they do mount in the same location. There are also not any brush guards with a receiver built in, likely because there wouldn't be enough support at the receiver location.
