Completely Hidden for a Clean, Factory Look

The EcoHitch Invisi trailer hitch is designed to be completely out of sight. The hitch cross tube bolts onto your vehicle's frame, behind the body of your vehicle. No drilling or welding is required. The receiver portion of the hitch will sit just behind the factory knockout panel in your bumper. Just pop the panel off to tow and put it back on again for a from-the-factory look when you're done using the hitch.


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 stand 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 Invisi trailer hitch is carefully researched and strength tested for a durable, high-quality hitch that can resist damage while on the road.

If you follow the directions you can be done in less than an hour and a half. I prepared the car by opening up the holes, installing the bolts in the frame and dropped the exhaust by myself. I asked my brother to lift the hitch into place and start the bolts then finished tightening everything down. The installation was a breeze and it is great not seeing the hitch when the receiver is not installed. My wife was even on board once she knew it wouldn’t be visible. The cost is twice as much as any other hitch but not seeing it and not losing any ground clearance are worth it. Angela was extremely knowledgeable and a joy to work with. Hopefully it will work as great at it looks when we start pulling our jet ski with it. 485971

2017 Subaru Crosstrek


The hitch looks high-quality, and the installation went smoothly. I would recommend you watch the install video before installing the hitch (it made it easier for me) The only issue I had was when trying to tighten down the four mounting bolts - they want to spin (there's nothing holding the bolt heads from turning). So I ended up holding the exposed threads below the nuts with a small vice-grip, and using a wrench to tighten them down - it worked. I used a uni-bit to enlarge the above/access holes to 1" vs. using a hole saw. No pictures because it is hidden up under the car (which is what my wife wanted). I am very pleased with it. 519941

Product was packaged good and parts were easy to figure out. Instructions were incorrect regarding which hole to expand, but luckily for the Youtube video by Crosstrek Central I already knew that was going to be the case. Can easily be installed by one person and it took about 3 hours to install the receiver hitch and wiring, which is sold separately. I used two of the four plugs, along with black RTV silicone, that are removed from underneath to cover the expanded holes. I highly recommend the hitch. You can't tell it's installed since it's hidden by the bumper and fits perfectly behind the factory knockout plug in the center. 475148

Very nice product, and a fun project to take the car apart a bit! Only 3 complaints / requests: 1. It was fairly difficult to get the bolts to bite and stop turning inside the frame. 2. It would also have helped to have a reminder in the instructions to check that the hitch is centered before tightening the bolts :) 3. More detailed descriptions of the different snap fittings on the bumper would have saved time. 399415

2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek


Installed on a 2014 XV Crosstrek: Hitch installed fairly easily following instructions. There are a few more clips/pins holding on the bumper than the instructions say, but if you look for them they're not hard to find. I was able to get it installed without having to drop the muffler. Only tricky part was getting the bolts to tighten and not spin once the hitch was installed, but that went pretty quick once i borrowed an impact wrench. The only complaint I had for the whole process was the estimated 7 days for shipping/delivery ended up being around 5 weeks. 505231

2016 Subaru Crosstrek


the hitch worked great. install was super easy. did it myself -but could have used an extra hand when lifting for bolting on. The directions were super clear but I didn't need to enlarge 4 holes- just two. everything was as promised. fits like a glove in the little trailer hitch area which is way nicer than it hanging below the bumper. 487447

This hitch works very well and installation went fairly easily. It tucks up nice behind the bumper fascia and is unseen. The instructions were very clear. I am very satisfied and it has made our 2015 Crosstrek even more versatile. 437733

The installation was complicated, but that was made clear in the product's description. It fits perfectly and looks fantastic. I love the fact that it's not visible when not in use, and that it doesn't reduce my clearance. 510141

  • Hidden Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek
  • The EcoHitch part # 306-X7203 is designed to be completely hidden behind the knockout plate so you don't have to see an unsightly crosstube underneath your vehicle. I attached a picture that I took from an install video that shows the cover installed and removed on a Crossstrek just like yours. This hitch fits XV Crosstreks from 2013 to 2017 as well.

  • EcoHitch Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Subaru Crosstrek
  • We haven't had the chance to install and film the EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch # 306-X7203 going on a 2016 Subaru Crosstrek. It will be a little like the installation of other hitches for the vehicle, not completely the same, but the video I have linked will give you some idea of the hitch installation process on the Crosstrek. Once installed the EcoHitch will have just the receiver visible so you will still have access to the hitch pin hole to secure a bike rack in the hitch. This...

  • Will a Thule T2 Pro Bike Rack Fit an EcoHitch on a 2017 Subaru Crosstrek
  • The Thule T2 Pro bike rack # TH9034XT will fit EcoHitch # 306-X7203 for your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek. However, it requires a receiver depth of 2-1/2 inches so if you only have 2-3/8 inches it would fit the muffler if that is what is directly behind the hitch receiver. The auto-pin would not be an issue if there was room for the bike rack shank. What I recommend is the Thule DoubleTrack Pro # TH9054. It requires just 1-1/2 inches of receiver depth. No auto-pin to worry about with this rack....

  • Trailer Hitch Ground Clearance Comparison Between Curt and Eco-Hitch Installations
  • Any trailer hitch whose receiver tube is positioned below a vehicle's rear bumper is going to reduce ground clearance and approach angle to some degree. The actual clearance lost depends on many factors including wheel/tire size, passenger and cargo load in the vehicle and the general condition of the suspension. On a newer vehicle like your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek it is not too likely that your suspension is sagging but this does matter on older vehicles. The two 2-inch hitches you referenced,...

  • Can Eco Hitch for 2017 Subaru Crosstrek Work with Curt Cargo Carrier
  • The Ecohitch part # 306-X7203 that you referenced which is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek can be used with a hitch mounted cargo carrier like the # C18151.

  • I went out to our warehouse and measured both the RockyMounts Backstage, part # RKY10002 and the SplitRail, part # RKY1140, and they both have shanks that extend 2.5 inches past the hitch pin hole, which in the case of the EcoHitch, part # 306-X7203, and its open styled shank, is enough to contact or damage your vehicle behind the hitch receiver when installed. Instead, I recommend the Thule Doubletrack Pro, part # TH9054 , which only has a shank that requires 1-1/2 inches of depth,...
