Hidden Cross Tube for a Clean, Factory Look

The EcoHitch Hidden trailer hitch is designed to be as inconspicuous as possible. The hitch's cross tube bolts onto your vehicle's frame, behind your rear bumper. No drilling or welding is required. Once the hitch is installed, only the receiver will be visible beneath your bumper. 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.

The installation was straight forward, although due to the weight it's likely going to be a two man job. Once installed it's very sturdy and we've used it multiple times for trailers and carriers without issue.

- 306-X7253

Outstanding product that looks and fits great on our vehicle. Used for a bike rack which gives more room for people, pets and gear inside.

- 306-X7253

works great! You will need a little auto mechanic understanding on how to remove the bumper. But it was easy with a friend to put on

Installation video and instructions were very helpful. Very satisfied!

The hitch fit as it was advertised for our Honda Oddessy

- 306-X7253

The hitch works very well. I bought it because its well, hidden. My last hitch would drag when going up even low angle driveways. I have not had that issue with this design. I would buy it again.

  • Comparison Between Draw-Tite 76025 and EcoHitch 306-X7253 for 2015 Honda Odyssey
    The primary difference is a matter of numbers. When installed, the Draw-Tite Class III # 76025 will sit so the inside top edge of the receiver tube sits about 13 inches above the ground, and the receiver tube will sit under the bumper so that the hitch pin hole is recessed under the vehicle by about 5 inches. The EcoHitch # 306-X7253 inside top edge of the receiver will sit about 14 inches above the ground and the hitch pin hole will be recessed by about 4 inches. In other words, the...

  • Hitch with Best Ground Clearance for 2011 Honda Odyssey
    For your 2011 Honda Odyssey the best 2 inch hitch option for ground clearance is the EcoHitch part # 306-X7253 which has the hitch opening the closest to the rear bumper but also only the hitch opening hangs below the bumper so there isn't a portion of the hitch that would want to drag turning into elevation changes like your driveway. Normally hitches have a lower crosstube same height as the hitch opening which is what drags on the outside corners, but the EcoHitch does not have that...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2013 Honda Odyssey
    The best hitch I would recommend for your 2013 Honda Odyssey the EcoHitch part # 306-X7253 as it has a mostly hidden appearance, is the 2 inch hitch size which is the most popular and has best capacity. Other options are going to hang down below the rear bumper quite a bit more. Then for trailer wiring the # 118521 which is the easiest to install and has the most reliable converter box.

  • Best Hitch for Ground Clearance on 2013 Honda Odyssey
    Generally speaking, a hitch with a concealed cross tube is going to provide for a bit better ground clearance than a hitch that does not; concealed cross tube hitches will almost always mount behind the bumper, requiring removal. The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 306-X7253 provides the best ground clearance of any of the hitches available for your 2013 Honda Odyssey with 14" from the top of the receiver tube to the ground.

  • Best Hitch Receiver w/ Ground Clearance for a 2012 Honda Odyssey
    I have a solution for you but they don't give us that information. I can tell you that the side to side bolt hole spacing of the etrailer Trailer Hitch item # e98862 is 56.13", center to center. This is the frame width measurement. The bolt holes on each mounting flange are 3.18" apart, also measured center to center. I've shown these dimensions on the photo I have linked below of the diagram I made. Additionally we had a 2012 Honda Odyssey in and we took some measurements off of it once...

  • Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2015 Honda Odyssey That Will Allow Fitment Of 4-Bike Rack
    Regarding the Hollywood Racks Destination Bike Rack for 4 Bikes # HR4000, the closest part of the rack to the hitch receiver pin hole is 6" when folded up and not in use, and 8" when folded down for bikes to be loaded. We can compare these measurements to the two hidden hitch receivers you were looking into. The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7253 has a distance of about 4" from the hitch pin hole to the back of the Honda Odyssey, while the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch...
