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.

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.

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.

Great product, fast shipping, super easy to install; there are videos that walk you through the install process every step of the way. The hitch fits perfectly behind the bumper. I use the hitch for a tandem bicycle rack. I have a friend that also has a VW sportwagen and tows a camping trailer.

Great, still functioning as expected. Holds a bike rack and a tandem bike perfectly. Another friend of mine uses it to tow a small camper. Easy to install.

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. Install wasn't all that hard, but it does take time but all said and done I would do it again. 10/10 would recommend.

Installation was easy and i like how sturdy the hitch is mounted, great workmanship on the product it self (welds,squareness,sharp edges,etc.) Definitely would recommend this to anyone looking for a solid 2'' hitch. My only recommendation to anyone that is installing it don't do it outside when its cold because you could break some of the clips while removing your bumper.

Still exceptional performance, used it to tow several different things no issues with product

This is a great hitch.... And great instructions. I installed this in just a little over 2 hours by myself. The part that took the longest was cutting the opening for the receiver in the bumper. I ended taking off the lower bumper cover piece to fabricate the opening for the receiver.

Install took about 2 hours but I wasted about 20 minutes getting the bumper cover back on squarely. Install is pretty straight forward. I didn't use the reverse bolt method and it was fine. The only issue is that the measurements for the bumper cover trimming are not good. 3.75 inches makes a lopsided hole and my OCD doesn't like it. I also knew in advance that I needed to trim a wing for the chain hooks. Also, I needed to bend down some sheet metal on the left side of where the bumper attaches to make a clean fit (pictured). Nice product, easy, but lengthy install. I recommend.

I've had the hitch on my 2018 VW Alltrack for over a year now and have nothing but positive things to say. Installation was pretty easy for my brother and I. It would have probably been harder, but doable with one person but I would recommend a second person to help. The instructions were just okay, but we managed to figure it all out. Cutting the trim was intimidating, but ended up being pretty easy as well. I didn't know what to use so I ended up using a small dry-wall saw which did a surprisingly good job. Once installed, I have used it many times to mount my bike rack and it works as you would expect.

My son and I installed our hitch today in about 4 hours. It was pretty straightforward, just involved a few re-fits to get the hole in the bumper the right shape/size for the hitch. We used a Dremmel to shape in in increments. A few of the screws were awkward to get to but we didn't break anything in the process of removing and re-installing the bumper. The hitch is bombproof and fit well into my 2019 Sportwagen.


Comments
This hitch has gotten lots of use in the last year and is still solid. Correction to my previous review-for week into my 2019 Alltrack.

As opposed to my last "Hidden Hitch" on my old minivan, which bottomed out every time I hit a bump or pulled out of my driveway, this one is truly a hidden hitch. Only the receiver sticks out of my bumper. With the help of the instructions and a friend who has his own lift in his garage, we installed it in about 2 hours. And we only broke one of the plastic snaps on my bumper, but fixed that with a little epoxy.

The hitch for my Volkswagen AllTrack is great and will handle my platform bike rack without issues. My car is a 2019, and the instructions include a specific detail on how to trim the bumper during the installation. I found that the cut specific to the 2019 AllTrack was still not sufficient to retain the original shape of the bumper (the bottom has a bow along the bottom edge that didn't exist before the installation). It's a minor cosmetic issue that isn't visible unless someone points it out, and doesn't affect the function of the hitch.

Installed the 2" Ecohitch on my 2019 VW Alltrack SE w/ Appearance Package. Overall quality of the product is excellent. The coating on the hitch appears to be applied generously and should stand up to the elements just fine. The hitch does require trimming of the lower bumper insert, but it is well worth the outcome. The hitch mounts flush with the rear bumper and does not jeopardize the rear clearance or look of the vehicle, like a number of conventional hitch mounts.

Great product. Simple install with two people. The directions could be a little more clear in terms of trimming the plastic bumper to clear the hitch receiver. Write it like a 5th grader is going to do it, I say!

Easy Install. It took a couple hours. I had to figure out how the fascia worked. I used an online video for reference. While my 2017 had a few subtle differences, the video helped me install my EcoHitch. The main difference is the rear valance does not have the cutout as the 2015 does. It required some "eyeballing" to get the hole cut for the hitch.

Great product. One of the few if not the only 2" trailer hitch for our 2016 VW Golf Sport wagon. Product came on time, in perfect condition and with detailed step by step instructions that made installation a breeze, including taking off and putting back the bumper. Took less than an hour from start to finish. Hitch looks great when installed and appears to be of great, sturdy quality

This hitch is my second from etrailer, because I got in accident and lost my Subaru. Both were delivered so quickly, with great follow-up. In addition, I bought my Thule rack with etrailer. Both hitched and rack are great, and the information on the website is extra -ordinary. I recommend etrailer to people, and will remain a client, if I ever need a product again. I do hope for other gear in the future!

I installed this 2" receiver hitch on my 2017 VW Golf Alltrack for the purpose of carrying bicycles with a Thule T2 rack. I used the T2 on my previous vehicle (Subaru Outback XT) as well, but with a different receiver hitch. The Ecohitch itself is very burly and feels like it could stand up to anything. It also looks good and has a nice, custom, stealthy look on the Alltrack. The install took two of us 5 hours, mostly because of cutting the trim. We left the rear wheels on the vehicle. Removing all the screws was pretty easy - just make sure you keep them in a container, as there are many. Peeling back the sides of the bumper and releasing the clips was a bit scary because it felt like you could crack the plastic. Just go slowly and look for where it's attached before yanking. Aside from that, the bumper came off without a hitch (pun intended). Taking off the impact bar, attaching the hitch, and reinstalling the pair was relatively easy. The biggest challenge came when we needed to cut the lower part of the bumper trim to fit around the hitch. The square receiver hitch opening is 3" across, but the neck behind it is smaller. We tried to cut the opening as small as possible and wedge the bumper back on. The tow hook flange on the hitch made this difficult. We had to make several small cuts to get it just right, which took a lot of time. Once on, the hitch looks and performs excellent. I definitely recommend it. Just leave yourself a decent amount of time for the install. If we did another one, the time would be about half what it took us.

The install process for me was about 4 hours but that was including adding a wiring harness and I would recommend if you are going to install a harness you do it at the same time as it's easier to run the wires at that time. The included instruction and vid on line do a good job. The biggest slowdown I found was cutting the hole in the bumper. I would recommend removing the black cover plate from the bumper then trimming and reinstalling it at the end when everything is back in. The reason being if you cut the hole a little wide that will cover some of it up. The hole size they give is larger then needed. I found 3" with a bit wider at the bottom worked. Overall it's a good fitting and well made hitch. If they included a template for the cutout I'd give them 5 out of 5.

Like that it doesn't hang lower than the bumper its a station wagon so don't have lots of ground clearance in the first place . Just using it for my ebike rack.

I ordered the hitch via the etrailer site since it has a lot of information with reviews and pictures. Due to Covid-19 it took a little more than a month to receive the hitch. But I really appreciated the fact that there was someone managing my order and who I could reach out to if I had any questions. The item was exactly what I wanted and I'd order from their site again. I had my local VW dealer install the hitch.

Super solid hitch, use it with a rocky mounts 2 bike rack and it's been perfect, no flex at all like I've seen with 1 1/4" hitch/racks. Definitely worth the price difference. The coating is also very robust, it hasn't chipped or faded and looks brand new a year after installing (in AZ harsh summers). Can't recommend enough.
