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.

This custom-fit trailer hitch with a hidden cross tube installs behind your vehicle's rear bumper, leaving only the receiver visible beneath it. Aluminum and steel alloy construction is durable and eco-friendly. Powder coat finish resists rust.


Have had this hitch for a year. Install was straightforward. Fit is great. Looks like a factory install. All you really see is the receiver. Pulled a uhaul over 1200 miles without issue. Have used it for a small motorcycle trailer several times as well. Would definitely recommend.

2015 Honda CR-V

Hitch shipped fast and arrived safely despite busted box. All parts and instructions included.

Easier to install than expected. I only partially took the wheel well and bumper off because clips on the bumper flaring started to break. This approach was just enough to pull the bumper away to slip the hitch frame into place. I did have to take the muffler off, which was the most challenging part. Install took us 2 hours exactly.


Shipping box was quite damaged. But, the hitch seems to have survived the rough hanling by the transportation company.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

2014 Honda CR-V

EcoHitch is really well engineered aftermarket hitch. Just a little concern about powder coating that makes product more quality. Overall for me IT IS EXCELLENT.


Great product! I had it installed by Camping World, and they too did a fabulous job. The hitch looks as if it was part of the OEM, it not not only looks great but performs perfectly. Thank you for such a wonderful product.


I've spent an entire year with this trailer hitch now and can't be more pleased. I am comfortable with performing my own automotive work so, I did the install of the hitch.
Although this style of hitch installation is more labor intensive, the visible results are well worth it. All that is visible from the rear is the receiving end, nice and clean. There will be no rusting frame to see as the hitch ages, as I have so often seen with the rest of the usual 'offerings'.


It worked well. we sold that car and I got another one for our new Jeep..

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Honda CR-V AWD
    The Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame # 75742 that you referenced is the strongest trailer hitch available for your 2014 Honda CR-V so it is the best all-around option whether your CR-V is a 2WD or an AWD. The only other option that would be worth checking out is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7297 which is also a Class III trailer hitch with a 2" receiver. This trailer hitch has a hidden crosstube which gives it much more of a clean look after the installation. When I...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Honda CR-V for Carrying Thule EasyFold XT
    The best hitch to carry the Thule EasyFold XT part # TH903202 that you referenced is the EcoHitch part # 306-X7297 if you want the most concealed option as only the hitch opening hangs below the rear bumper or if you wanted a higher value setup the Draw Tite # 75742 would be the way to go. The crosstube and hitch opening of this are visible below the rear bumper which makes it a bit more visible.

  • Comparing Trailer Hitches that Fit 2014 Honda CR-V
    For your 2014 Honda CR-V we have two hitch sizes available. The smaller and very light duty 1-1/4 inch size and the much more popular and versatile 2 inch size which has higher towing capacities. I would say that you will want the 2 inch size as whenever available they are the way to go. So that narrows down the options a bit and it comes down to which 2 inch hitch? At this point you have two very distinct options. The mostly hidden but longer to install EcoHitch part # 306-X7297 which...

  • Concealed Trailer Hitch Option for 2013 Honda CR-V
    We do offer a mostly concealed option for the 2013 Honda CR-V, the EcoHitch # 306-X7297. The installation is pretty involved, it would involve temporarily removing the rear bumper cover and underbody panel. The underbody panel will need to be notched to allow the receiver tube to pass through it. Once installed, the only visible portion of the hitch would be the receiver tube and the safety chain loops. The remainder of the hitch will be concealed behind the bumper. EcoHitch estimates...

  • High/Low Beam Light Replacement and Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Honda CR-V
    I do have some recommendations for you for high and low replacement bulbs for your 2014 Honda CR-V. We have some that have a white tint while other have a blue tint and I'll list them below but really the only difference is preference. If you want to stick with something a littlre more traditional then go with the white, otherwise the blue looks great too: Premium White High/Low Beam - # VX-DH4 Superwhite (Blue Hue) High/Low Beam - # VX-LH4 Attached are some review videos for you to...

  • Comparing Hollywood Rack Sport Rider Bike Racks for Toyota Corolla and Honda CR-V
    Great questions! And thank you for coming our way for hitches on your vehicles! We'll start with hitches and then move our way over to the bike rack: For your 2006 Toyota Corolla you are correct about the 1-1/4" hitch options and for that I recommend the Curt # C11265 which is a Class I hitch. Curt typically has a thicker powder coat over Draw-Tite so this will weather the elements better. For your 2014 Honda CR-V I have 2 different options based on price-point and design; the etrailer...
