Is this right For you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Have a steep driveway and often carry a bunch of bikes or a heavy cargo carrier that you want to keep from scraping the ground
  • Prefer a hitch that looks like it came on your Subie from the factory and doesn't call too much attention to itself
  • Care about the environment and support EcoHitch's mission to use recycled materials

No, if you:

  • Have trailer safety chains with large hooks - you might have a hard time getting them attached
  • Worry that you might harm the fascia as you remove it while getting the hitch installed
  • Feel reassured by getting a hitch with the highest weight ratings

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.

It finally stopped raining in Seattle and got to use the hitch for my boat. It worked perfectly. The included mounting nut held everything tight. I will buy another one for the next car when needed.

Solid and well-built. Installation using etrailer videos was very straightforward. Took about 2 1/2 hours being careful to check each step. I did break a few of the retaining pins (which I expected) and fortunately have some extras from prior projects.

This hitch has been flawless & has allowed me to expand my adventures with the Family. I have it mounted to a Subaru Outback & I primarily use it to hold my 1UP USA bike rack. I routinely have 4 bikes on the back & never have any issues on or off road.

Instructional video was of great help in taking the required sections of the car apart. The hitch fit perfectly. The welds and material are top notch. The powder coat was excellent. It did only take a couple hours to do. This hidden hitch is worth the extra cost over the one which hangs down below the bottom of the rear facia. The only thing I did different was on the cut of the bumper facia where the hitch pokes through. Theirs was larger than it needed to be. I cut a rectangle just a little larger than the hitch itself and slid the bumper in upon assembly. It took a bit of measuring, and re-measuring to make sure the cut was going to be in the right place because you only have one shot. Also, I reused the foam which goes between the actual bumper and the plastic rear facia. There was space for it so I put it back in.

After a year of usage I found this hitch to be very rigid. No flex at all. Also, no surface rust at all on the receiver. Very happy.

I picked this hitch for my 2019 Subaru Outback and am super pleased with it. The install was easy for me to do alone in less than 2 hours. It also works great with my 1up rack

This hitch was easy to install. The video directions for my specific vehicle were good and easy to follow. It didn't require any drilling or alterations to the vehicle. I like that the hitch is out of sight when it is not in use. I put the etrailer rubber hitch cover on it when not in use, and you have to look really hard to tell that there is even a hitch back there.

I have a 2019 Outback. I consider myself a slightly above average gear-head with (mostly) proper tools. My observations: 1) I referenced the video for the 2017 Outback, and found it very accurate for the 2019. I got my hitch installed, along with an electrical harness, in a couple of hours in my garage. 2) My Subie has optional mud guards in the wheel wells. You need to take these off before trying to remove the rear bumper fascia! Three Philips head screws along the edge of the wheel well. One push-pin inside the wheel well. One push-pin along the bottom of the fender. Removing the mud guard reveals a push-pin in the bumper fascia that you need to remove in order to get the fascia off. 3) A deep socket really helps when you are trying to unbolt the bumper beam. A 9/16" socket works just as well as a 14 mm when removing/installing the bolts. 4) I used a Dremel tool with a cutting wheel to cut out space under the bumper fascia to accommodate the new receiver. Used pliers with flat jaws to crimp the trim material provided onto the rough edge. I'm really liking the minimalist appearance of the finished receiver installation!

This went on a 2019 Outback. The directions were for earlier models, but everything was identical. The video for 2016-2018 Outbacks was the same process for the 2019. My guess is that the bolt/ hole pattern is slightly different on the 2019. It took longer than I expected, because the little plastic retainers and guides below the taillights were very tight and difficult to disengage without breaking them. Also, I was able to keep the foam piece on the bumper and still install the fascia. Installed, it looks identical to the pics for 2016-2018 models.

The items ordered took a little bit to arrive but never the less everything went great. The installation was simple and the type of hitch i purchased flows with my rear Bumper Cover and is basically UN-noticeable. I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you

This is a very well built product. Arrived well packaged. Installation was super easy. This will primarily be used for bike transport but may also see a trailer. I'm pleased and would definitely purchase it again
