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. 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 technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers.

We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

Good quality hitch for my wrx. Very snug fit inside bumper but looks great hidden. I will only use it for bike carrier so its more than strong enough, ive seen flimsy ones on other cars 481121

2016 Subaru WRX

So far, this hitch works well. Install was fairly straight forward with only a few small snags. The instructions are very well written and walk you through the whole process with very little confusion. My only problems were with torquing the bolts down and a minor deformation of the bumper where it contacts the hitch frame near the safety chain mounts. If you can, measure and center the hitch prior to installing the bumper and crash bar so you can use a long breaker bar to help torque the bolts down. This would have sped up my install considerably. 436460

2017 Subaru WRX

Shipping was quick, and the packaging was excellent. I give it 4/5 stars for three reasons... (1) It's not the easiest hitch I've installed (2) the instructions were not complete (instructions on removing the bumper missed 2 screws - a quick YouTube video can solve this problem) and (3) once it's installed, mounting a simple bike rack proved to be difficult. This is ironically due to the "Invisi" part of this hitch, which means you have to go behind the bumper to install the rod & cotter pin. Quick tip: WD-40 works miracles for removing (lowering) the exhaust from the hangers. All in all, I recommend this product. 487571

2016 Subaru WRX

Fits perfectly and install was straight forward! A ratchet strap is helpful in positioning the hitch during installation, and make sure to remove the two rear most exhaust hangers prior to installing so the hitch can slide in. 508441

My buying experience was so good that I wish I could have it with other companies. Rachel went out of her way to get my Torklift Invisihitch (for my 2016 wrx) delivered a day sooner than I expected. Amazing customer service! The hitch it everything I wanted. Sturdy, concealable, and more than enough capacity for my application. Great product and buying experience. My next hitch will be from 435814

2015 Subaru WRX

Quality hitch and hardware. Install instructions were good, but unnecessarily tell you to remove tail lights. I didn't do this and the installation went fine. I would recommend removing both mufflers entirely for easier access. Package was well protected and shipping was quick. 558119

2015 Subaru WRX

Solid product. Only complaint is the restricted access to the hitch pin. Not really a valid complaint because you can clearly see this will be the case before buying. Make a small cut away from the underside of your bumper and getting your hand is is doable but still not easy. Overall happy with the construction and material available for technical support on the web. 583960

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • Hitch & Support Straps for Using Thule T2 Pro XTB 2 Bike Platform Rack TH9034XT on 2015 Subaru WRX
  • Thule recommends using any of their hitch bike racks, such as their T2 Pro bike rack # TH9034XT, only in those hitches that offer at least 1-1/2-inches from the receiver opening to the center of the hitch pin hole. This dimension is shown in the linked diagram. Thule's concern is that when there is less than this amount of steel between the hitch pin hole and the end of the tube the weight of the loaded rack could damage the hitch. This is a safety concern more than a concern about...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 2016 Subaru WRX with Torklift EcoHitch Installed
  • For your 2018 Subaru WRX the TorkLift EcoHitch part # 306-X7257 (2 inch hitch) is a great hitch option as it can hide behind the bumper panel when not needed. If you check out the picture I attached of this hitch installed you'll see that the opening appears to be recessed behind the bumper a couple inches. Now the Swagman XC part # S64650 has a curve in the shank pretty close to where the rack slides into the hitch so it would be too close to call, but I have a better option all-around...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring for 2018 Subaru WRX
  • For your 2018 Subaru WRX, the EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7257 is a confirmed fit. There is no drilling required, but there is some minor fascia trimming and heat shield trimming required. This hitch will be hidden and will use the factory knockout panel location. I've attached a photo of this fit to assist as well. For your wiring harness, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118768 which is a confirmed fit.

  • Recommended Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for Dirt Bike Carrier on 2015 Subaru WRX
  • The only hitch we carry for your 2015 Subaru WRX that will allow you to use your dirt bike carrier is the EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7257. This is a 2 inch receiver that is rated for tongue weight of up to 350 lbs, so it is the best option for this combination. I also recommend the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # 63232 to secure your single dirt bike rack to this hitch. I've attached a photo of this fit to assist. The Class I hitches are...

  • How to Carry a Dirt Bike on a 2017 Subaru WRX
  • The owner's manual for your 2017 Subaru WRX does not recommend towing a trailer therefore, a tongue weight capacity is not explicitly listed. There is a tongue weight capacity for the trailer hitch but if the vehicle is lower then that will need to be the figure you abide by. However, there is a vehicle weight capacity which will include the weight of all passengers, the weight of all cargo, and in your case the weight of the trailer hitch and anything on it. The vehicle weight capacity...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2017 Subaru WRX
  • There is a wiring harness available for your 2017 Subaru WRX, the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C56259.

I've added a link to a video review of this prodcut as well as a link to an installation video. For the hitch I recommend the EcoHitch # 306-X7257, though this will only fit if your WRX has the center knock out panel in the lower rear fascia. This is...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2015 Subaru WRX
  • The 2-inch Class III EcoHitch # 306-X7257 is a great choice for using a hitch bike rack like the Kuat Transfer or the Rocky Mounts Monorail 2. As long as your WRX has the center knock out panel in the lower rear fascia (shown in the linked photo) this hitch will be a perfect fit and the hitch's 350-lb tongue weight rating means it has plenty of capacity for the combined weight of a hitch rack and the two bikes loaded on it. Installation instructions are linked for your reference and these...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Option for 2018 Subaru WRX for Bike Rack
  • The best hitch option for your 2018 Subaru WRX is the EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7257. This is because it has a completely hidden look and fits in the factory cutout of your rear bumper for a factory look. The 2 inch receiver opening will allow you to use accessories that have that 2 inch shank like bike racks and cargo carriers to give you more options that are compatible.

  • Compatibility of Thule T2 and 2" EcoHitch with 2016 Subaru WRX
  • The 2" EcoHitch # 306-X7257 will fit your 2016 Subaru WRX Limited as long as it has the center knock-out panel in the lower rear fascia. The Thule T2 Classic Bike Rack Models for 2" Hitches, # TH9044 and # TH9044-TH9046 are compatible with the 2" EcoHitch. We are based in Missouri, so I am not familiar with any installers in Los Angeles.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Subaru WRX That's Hidden Behind Bumper Panel

If you check out the attached picture you'll see a ball mount going through the opening in the bumper and attaching to the hitch. This hitch also fits the STI models too. If you need trailer wiring too the kit I recommend is the T-One part # 118768 because it installs without requiring any splicing and because it has the most reliable converter box...
