This hitch installed easier than the 10 difficulty it was given. Figuring out how to remove the tail lights was most trouble. The hitch required no trimming on my Countryman S and the drop tube fit between the heat shield and the bumper sensors for hatch opening. I would recommend buying a plastic pop rivet gun to use with the rivets that put the plastic wheel arches back in with.

2017 Mini Countryman

This is a nice hitch for our 2017 Mini Countryman, HOWEVER, the installation instructions leave a lot to be desired. Also, the plastic rivets that were provided with the installation instructions are not the right size for the job (should be 5mm rivets). The rivet heads extend beyond the recess area in the wheel wells. Here are some of the other issues: 1. Step 3 should read: Remove 3 fasteners in the right wheel well and 2 fasteners in the left wheel well. (8mm screw and 11mm nuts). 2. Step 5 should read: Remove (2) 10mm bolts from each tail light assembly. Remove access panel on each side of the rear cargo area. Turn (2) tab assemblies counterclockwise. Carefully remove tail light from vehicle and unclip electrical harness. 3. Step 8 should read: Raise the hitch into position using studs to align. Mark the exhaust heat shield where hitch receiver comes into contact. Remove the hitch assembly and cut a square notch into the heat shield (use tin snips or Dremel tool and round the corners) so the hitch assembly will slide all the way forward into place. When reinstalling all parts in reverse order, the two rear fascia fasteners closest to the receiver will not be able to be reinstalled because the heat shield will have been pushed slightly forward. Remove the clips and install zip ties (2) on either side from the fascia to the heat shield. When installing the plastic rivets for the wheel trim, it is easier to remove the tire so as to pull the rivets straight instead of at an angle. All nuts and bolts that were removed should be reinstalled using medium strength, blue, thread locker similar to what is on all bolt and nut assemblies prior to removal. After all of that, this is a nice quality hitch.

2017 Mini Countryman

Works great to be able to attach a hitch mounted bike rack. Install was involved, but not horrible. The provided plastic rivets were just a touch too big - I could have drilled the holes a bit but the POM rivet gun i bought (twelve bucks) came with an assortment which I used. I also ended up modifying the heat shield a little bit: cut out a rectangle for the hitch to drop into, and gently hammered two of the "outdents" in so that I could re-use the bolts to attach instead of using anything like zip ties as another installer had done. In the end, everything is super solid, and with my 1.25" to 2" adapter I can use my existing bike rack and it's very solid and the back end of the Mini does not sag at all. Also important, with this hitch, as compared to others I was looking at, there is no reduction in ground clearance since the hitch stays above the height of the heat shield.

Great service & quick delivery from etrailer. The hitch is custom for my Mini Cooper S Countryman. It fit perfectly and hauls my road bike and/or my mountain bike. I had the hitch professionally installed. This is the 3rd hitch I’ve ordered from etrailer and I get great service and a great product every time.

This hitch receiver worked on my leased vehicle just as well as the previous one worked on my earlier vehicle. I will definitely look for the same if my next vehicle does not have a hitch receiver.

Mini Cooper

Etrailer was recommended by other Mini Cooper drivers in Anchorage, AK. I needed a trailer hitch in a rush as I need to relocate back to the lower 48 because of COVID-19. Jennifer at etrailer was so helpful in getting the right hitch and all the necessary collateral pieces for the install. I was concerned that it might take too long to get the hitch, but Jennifer made sure I had the hitch within 5 days! I am happy to say that the hitch is installed and I’m ready to hit the road! Thank you so much, Jennifer and etrailer!

  • Is Installing Curt Trailer Hitch on 2018 Mini Countryman Difficult
    I wish we had an install video for the Curt hitch you mentioned but at this time we have not had a chance to install it on a vehicle. The install difficulty is listed as a 10 of 10 but you should note that the rating has more to do with time that the install will take and less to do with actual difficulty. This install is pretty involved but it's not impossible for a DIYer. I attached a link to the install instructions for you to check out which are very detailed.

  • Recommended Hitch and Bike Rack For 2019 Mini Countryman To Carry 50 Lb Electric Bikes
    I definitely recommend a platform rack for electric bikes so you do not have to lift the heavy bikes as far to get them on the rack. For a platform rack, I recommend the RockyMounts MonoRail 2 Bike Platform Rack # RKY10003 which is designed to carry 2 heavy/electric bikes that can weigh up to 60 lbs each so it has more than enough capacity for your bikes. The platform is raised a few inches to help keep your bikes elevated from the ground since the hitch on the Mini Cooper sits pretty low....
