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.

Installed the ecohitch 306-X7310 on my Son's 2016 VW Golf GTI. The installation was made easy by the detailed instructions included in the box and the link to an installation video for visual reference. I will recommend E-trailer to anyone who asks about my hitch. Thank you.

A few years ago I installed a Curt trailer hitch on my VW GTi. It was the only hitch available for my car at the time, it was easy to install, and served well. It did, however, hang a little lower than I preferred and was known to drag. This past Winter I bought myself a Christmas present: an Eco-Hitch hidden receiver hitch and installed it in late April. (Too cold for working in the driveway up to that point.) It was a way more involved installation than the previous hitch and took me pretty much all afternoon. Fortunately there are both print and video installation guides available. The results are worth it. The new hitch is naturally braced in multiple planes and pretty much does not sway. It sits a few inches higher, so the dragging problem is gone. If I were starting from scratch I would buy both the hitch and the bike rack in 2”. My otherwise very nice 1-1/4” Kuat rack does twist some on bumpy roads and the larger rack body should pretty much eliminate that. You should also be aware that you will lose the foam spacer that protects your rear bumper from minor damage. Not a big deal for me but for others, who knows? FYI. Service, as always from etrailer.com , was quick and installation support excellent. If you’re in the market check them out.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


I've had the EcoHitch on my vehicle now for about a year (and about 30,000 miles - I commute 200 miles to work each day). My goal was to continue to use my Thule Vertex Bike Rack. It does work with that rack, perfectly. It seems pretty robust (I've been able to step on it when I had to clear some heavy snow off the roof of my car) and after a year, I haven't had to make any adjustments. I think it blends into the car nicely. And, it did not impact my gas mileage (~40 mpg highway). I will say - I found out almost instantly that this will change the way you drive the vehicle (at least in Colorado) because it takes very little to bottom out. I've left some grooves in friends' pavement after backing out of driveways and I have hit coming in to parking lots, going over speed bumps, and if there are any drainage ditches that have a steeper angle. Add the bike rack - I've hit that pretty good too (thankfully, not with the bike). To fix this issue, I decided earlier this year to lift the back end of the car by having the towing springs installed to lift the clearance by about 2". They get installed in May, so I'll update this to see if that resolves the bottoming out on the hitch. I didn't originally rate this product because honestly I was so angry at how poor the installation went. The instructions were difficult to follow (complicated by how I then found corrected instructions online) and I was sent the wrong bolts (<-- if that had been my only problem, no biggie. My friend Ace Hardware is just down the street). Something I felt should take maybe a day if I was super careful ended up taking 2 because the instruction mixup (I put the hitch on twice. Second time was able to install my bumper again too. Ha). Despite my installation woes - I think this is a great product for the car. I really hope the towing springs solve my bottoming out (I'm not looking to be an SUV - just be able to pull into my parking lot at work with the bike rack on the vehicle ha).


Comments
So Ive had the hitch on with the towing springs installed for about a year now and what a difference! I havent hit the hitch or bike rack since installing the towing springs, and I took it up into the mountains several times last summer. The hitch has been solid and sturdy, works perfectly with my bike rack and I think it blends in with the vehicle pretty well. I recommend, but also recommend thinking about the towing springs if you decide to install the hitch on this vehicle.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


In general I do like the hitch and would give it 5 starts. But there are a few problems: a) It's not 100% compatible with the 2019 Golf R b) The instructions that I found for trimming the bottom part of the bumper are not correct either. The compatibility issue is related to the mounting bolts. The 2019 Golf R in the US comes with blind spot monitors. The sensors are mounted at the rear corners of the car and use the impact bar bolts to mount. On the driver side that's not a problem, since they just get "sandwiched" under the mounting bolts. But on the passenger side they use bolts with threads on both sides and get mounted to the skinnier end (see pictures). Yet, the mounting HW kit for the hitch does not come with those screws - which basically means you are screwed. Technically you are not supposed to use the factory screws and you can't use the screws that come with the hitch. Regarding the trimming instructions - the cutout has to be at least 4" wide and also at least half an inch deeper than the drawings that were posted here. Also, when you install it don't use a ramp like I did, use stands so that the wheels are hanging off the car - that'll give you more room when dealing with the screws in the wheel well. I used a car jack to lift the car up a bit so that I can get in there...

After a year Im still very happy with the hitch. Im using it at least every other weekend with my Küat Sherpa bike rack. And I have not had any problems with the hitch.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


Fits perfectly, and was not too hard to install. I waited a little while to review this so I could test it out, make sure there was no long term issue. When installing, one of my bolts holding the tow bracket on broke loose of its weld,and required that I cut the bolt off,which was not too difficult, but be aware and be ready to do this as it is a possibility. Tows my new trailer very well. I found a 6" rise did the trick for me, though that may vary based on your trailer. The most I have towed is about 700lbs, though it feels capable of far exceeding that. I would be cautious of not exceeding the tongue weight though, as the car is a unibody design. The instructions are not the best, and you will need to widen one of the holes for the rectangular spacer to fit. There is a good [online] video out there that shows this very well


Comments
One year later, working great. Ive towed as much as 1400, and though I can feel it, the car pulls it no problem. Well worth the investment

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


The installation of the hitch on my '17 AllTrack was fairly straight forward with a couple of caveats. The Instructions did not address the parking sensors on the sides, or the harness plug behind the bumper cover. There was also considerably more trimming required than what was referenced in the instructions, both width, and depth. The instructions covered both their 1 1/4" and 2" receivers. Finally, there was no tool list in the instructions. Thankfully etrailer had a comprehensive video on how to do it that I was able to follow along with. Total time from start to finish, including jacking the rear of the car up and taking the wheels off, and polishing my exhaust tips, was just over two hours. The craftsmanship of the hitch is great and if the instructions were more clear I would have given it five stars.


Comments
I have used the hitch extensively for hauling mountain bikes all over kingdom come. It has performed flawlessly. I continue to be very happy with my purchase.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


Hitch is excellent quality, fit my 2010 Prius almost perfectly and installation was technically very easy. I'd recommend heeding the advice to mark where you're trimming the fairing before removal as it doesn't appear to be dead center once removed. Besides a few of the 10 year old brittle bumper clips breaking, installation was as easy as the two other hitches I've installed. It fits almost snug against the bottom of the bumper, my rack hasn't bottomed out on anything yet amazingly, ends up being fairly close to the rear axle.


Comments
Flawlessly. Ive left my rack installed the past year with zero issues. Totally worth the extra cost for the 2 rather than fooling around with adapters, completely solid.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


I originally had the Curt class III hitch, but it hangs to low and the draw bar would scrape on some hills around my house. I bought this as a replacement because the ground clearance is almost 2 inches higher. The actual hitch fits tight to the body and seems well built. It didn't come with the installation hardware, but that was delivered about a week later. etrailer had to get hardware from eco hitch. The main issue with this product is rust. After three weeks of being installed, I had alot of surface rust. I reached out to eco hitch to find out why. They said there warranty doesn't cover rust and recommended steel wool and paint, but, I could send pictures for review. I never heard back. They have an option on their site for custom powder coating, but the the stock coating is terrible. This hitch is twice as much as the Curt and doesn't appear to be corrosion resistant at all. If you go with this hitch, prior to install, paint it. With no warranty to speak of, I now have to uninstall the hitch and paint the hitch, and reinstall. I have had 4 hitches from hidden hitch and Curt, but never seen anything rust the fast. Eco hitch should be embarrassed by the quality of the coating and lack of support.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


Just finished installing this a few moment ago and I have to say that it really looks good on our 2014 Outback 3.6R. The low profile of the receiver barely extends beyond the line of the mufflers. I dont think it will be as much of a consideration when backing into a parking stall as other systems that I have seen. There were minor issues that I ran into with the install, so it took me about 3 hours to get this mounted at home with no extra help. I also decided to do the bumper removal method. I felt comfortable removing the trim, and it had the added bonus of giving me more room to work. If you dont have an extra set of hands to help align the hitch to the bolts, you can use a ratchet strap thrown around the hinges for the rear hatch. Hook into the loops where you normally place your trailer chains and take up the weight of the hitch. This will allow just enough support so you can have both hands to start aligning the bolts to the hitch. Lastly, I decided to torque everything down and suspended the muffler before I reattached the bumper bar and trim. The part that was the most difficult for me was getting the dual exhaust remounted onto the rubber bungs. I ended up having to grind off about 3/4-1 inch of the rearmost post on the muffler to get it back into the bung hole. I look forward to pulling a trailer and seeing how everything holds up down the road.


Comments
This hitch has done wonders for us in terms of being able to haul things around. We used it to tow a trailer across the country last year when the other half got a new job back home. The car and hitch combination made this all possible. We have also purchased a cargo tray to help move extra gear when we cant take up more room in the car for camping trips. If you are looking to get this, or any hitch system for an outback, I recommend also getting an adjustable ball mount, and some helper springs. It may stiffen up the ride, but youll reduce the risk of scraping the bottom of your car or whatever you may be towing.

Looks great, had some difficulty placing the underbody plastic panel on the driver side back on due to the length of the bolts (see attached picture 5899). I had to remover and re-insert them from outside inward so the length of the bolt went towards the spare tire (it does not hit it), Overall looks great and will see how it handles towing my small trailer.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


After watching a video of how to install it, and orienting myself with the underside of the vehicle (Nissan Leaf), the instillation went without "a hitch". There were a few times of returning to the video, but pretty straight forward. I can't remember the time it took, but I would say under two hours from start to finish.. including cutting the plastic shroud on the underside of the vehicle for the hitch to fit/stick out the back. It is VERY solid! I use the hitch strictly for a heavy 4 bike rack, and it supports it quite easily. I would highly recommend this product and etrailer.com! They had the best price by far for this hitch, and delivery was quick!

my only reason for purchasing a class III hitch to my previous was to accommodate electrical lift for my wife's mobility scooter. Additionally I had a class I hits installed by the car dealer but it proved to be unable to meet the demands of what I needed. This hitch has proved to be an outstanding purchase and has provided superior performance. As a side benefit the 2 inch receiver has been extremely beneficial in accommodating other applications. The performance, price and ease of installation ( with the video) is excellent.

This is an excellent hitch. It bolts to Prius with not too much difficulty and is mostly hidden behind the bumper. The main reason I like it so much is that it is a full size class III hitch which can be used with the majority of bike racks and other hitch accessories. I also use it to pull a small utility trailer. Who needs a gas guzzling pickup truck?

I installed the eco hitch according to the instructions. Only problem I had , forgot to reconnect the back sensor before reinstalling the bumper shroud. Finally got it reconnected after a slight struggle without removing the shroud again. That was the only hitch I had. Took me two hours,even with the sensor mistake . Looks fantastic. Thank you for a top quality hitch.

Ordered this hitch so that I could use my bike rack with the 2" receiver. Also wanted to keep as low of a profile as I could for my new car (Subaru Impreza Sport). This receiver hitch is perfect, Construction is very good and over kill for a Subaru Impreza, don't think it will ever see anything near those ratings on this car, but it will keep my bikes secure! Installation was pretty straight forward, especially if you've ever done one of these. No holes to drill, directions super easy to follow, and it came out super clean. I've installed a few receiver hitches on cars for family, this one was easy, well laid out and took about 1.5 hours. I was super happy about how clean the cut out was after following the instructions that came with the bumper. This can be done with basic tools, and jack stands to support the receiver, unless you have a friend. Worth the extra $$ over the 1.25" receivers.

If you are looking for the best quality Tiguan hitch, this is it. Super heavy duty, and highest ground clearance. Some of the other offerings may be easier to install as they don't require removing the bumper cover, but they compromise capacity, and clearance. This hitch is completely hidden, with the exception of the receiver. No trimming of the bumper cover is required either! Not my first ECO-hitch, as I had one on a Golf Sportwagen also which was also excellent. Installation time took about 2 hours. etrailer customer service came through when there was a little hiccup, I appreciate that.

Overall excellent product. After a year of use, it has been a great addition to my car for light towing and bike racks. It fits really well in the rear bumper of the Alltrack and is higher than a lot of hitches for cars which is really nice.

This is by far the best hotch for my Jetta Sportwagen TDI! No drilling, bolts into the frame, and nice clean, low-profile look. The 2" receiver makes it easy to use a bike rack or other accessories.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


The hitch installed without any interference. There was no video available for this but there should be. I watched some Accord videos assuming the bumper cover restraints were similar and they were. You really need the plastic tool for disengaging these so as to not break out the plastic keepers on the cover. I had this tools so it went well for me. I had to jack up each side to create some clearance between the fender and the tire to remove one of the screws. I would also advise having replacements for the 6 plastic retainers that are removed to get the cover off. Mine all fell apart and again I was glad i was prepared and had these. This install requires cutting a small area of the cover away for clearance. My hitch did not have the trim piece called out to put over this cut edge. It looks fine to me without it so I am happy enough. I love the hitch and have already used it. I believe the instructions said the assembly time is 2 hours. I moved right along but it still took me closer to 3 hours.


Comments
The first note here is that I installed this on a Honda Crosstour. I dont know why this review says Ford Edge? Anyway it has been a year and I use this hitch quite a bit. I spun my car into the ditch in a particularly bad winter day and pulled it out by pulling on this hitch. I put a strap hook into one of the safety chain holes and jerked straight sideways on the car in deep snow. I was pretty worried we were going to jack up the car good but after jerking it 20 or 30 times it finally popped out of the ditch with no damage. Its a good strong hitch and distributes the load into the cars body effectively. I would certainly buy again.
