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.

Everything that etrailer.com did was outstanding. My problem was the fact that four of the eight metric split lock washers were not included in the hardware kit. The missing hardware caused a delay in the installation and a trip to the local hardware store. Both items were shipped promptly and well packaged.

Folks at etrailer helped me get the right hitch and install video made very easy to install. This is my third hitch I’ve purchased from etrailer great company to work with.

Instructions were thorough. I used a scissors hydraulic Jack as my “second pair of hands(as I didn’t have an overhead hoist) , and, took my time with the install.
Looks good on our new Highlander after all was done.

Perfect hitch. I really like the fact that it is hidden and you only see the receiver. Installed by myself without any issues. Note: Get some extra plastic push clips for the bumper and side plastic. You will probably break some trying to get them out.

The hitch fit very nicely under our '21 Toyota Highlander XSE. The only part visible is the hitch receiver. Very happy to pay a little more for a better aesthetic.



by:
2022 Toyota Highlander

Fit well but a bit difficult to install. Lower side plate bolts are very close to hitch bolts. Hard to access hitch bolts. Also bolts have to be tightened in a specific order to install the hitch correctly. All the bolts have to be snugged up first to locate all the pieces and center the hitch. Then the bolts for the hitch to the frame get tightened. The lower side plate bolts have to be loose to access the hitch bolts. Then the upper side plate bolts can be tightened and finally the lower side plate bolts.
Also why mix metric bolts and English/SAE bolts? Couldn't all the bolts be metric? Then I can use one set of tools.
Finally I could not remove the muffler from the rear support bracket. I've worked on many exhaust systems and even have the special pliers for pushing out the support hooks. You can't move the exhaust system enough to pop out the hooks. The support bracket had to be removed and reinstalled in order to get the hitch above the muffler.

For highlander xse after installation you need change your exhaust hanger lower your exhaust tips. Looks ugly but this is the only way to make it fits

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For A 2023 Toyota Highlander XLE
    We do offer a hitch that will fit the 2023 Toyota Highlander XLE. Basically any hitch listed under "excluding XSE" is going to fit the XLE model. For you I recommend the EcoHitch Class 3 Trailer Hitch # EH35VR. The main reason I prefer this hitch over others is because it will allow you to store a full size spare under the vehicle. Any other hitch will require you to relocate the full size spare tire, which can be a hassle. The EcoHitch # EH35VR has a 2" receiver and is rated for 5,000...

  • Is There a Trailer Hitch For a 2021 Lexus RX 350L That Does Not Require Trimming
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13394 is the only hitch confirmed to fit the 2021 Lexus RX 350L. It us a bolt on installation, but it does require trimming or removal of underbody panel required for installation. I attached an installation video to show you exactly what is involved. You should still retain use of the kick sensor but may have to activated it to one side of the hitch, rather than in the center.

    Thanks for reaching out!

  • Can The Curt Trailer Hitch Also Have A Full 20 Inch Spare Installed On A 2022 Toyota Highlander?
    The 20" spare tire on your 2022 Toyota Highlander Platinum will have to be removed, and can not be reinstalled after the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C99FR is installed. If you still wish to have your full-size spare tire installed as well, you may consider taking a look at the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # EH35VR. This hitch has a maximum towing capacity of 5,000lbs, and a maximum tongue weight capacity of 750lbs, which is a bit higher capacity than the Curt Trailer Hitch...

  • Trailer Hitch That Fits 2020-2020 Toyota Highlander Platinum With Full Size Spare
    If the full size factory spare is on a 20" steel wheel then you will be able to use the Draw-Tite # DT84MR. If it is an aluminum wheel then the only option is the EcoHitch # EH35VR. These and all other options may interfere with the hands free liftgate sensor. In most cases all you have to do is put your foot on either side of the receiver. However, the sensors aren't always placed in the same spot so occasionally the functionality is lost. You might want check with the Toyota dealer...

  • Recommended Hitch for a 2022 Toyota Highlander LE Hybrid
    I have another option but the only Draw-Tite hitch available for a 2022 Toyota Highlander LE Hybrid has been discontinued due to Draw-Tite's parent company Horizon Global being bought out and logistical issues making the hitch unavailable. Instead, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch item # C99FR. This hitch is custom fit and bolts to your Highlander with included hardware. I checked with Curt and confirmed that this hitch is compatible with the hybrid model. It is a class III hitch with...

  • Is There a Hidden Trailer Hitch for a 2023 Toyota Highlander
    I do have an option for you but in order to fit a full size spare tire you'd have to go with a visible hitch like the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # EH35VR which is what I recommend using. Unfortunately, the hidden options won't work on models with a full size spare tire as the crosstube comes in contact with the spare tire. The visible crosstube options don't have this issue since the crosstube sits down much lower. If you want to run the hidden hitch you'd need to swap out the...

  • Which Hitch for 2023 Toyota Highlander Has Least Trimming of Panels
    All of the hitches that fit your 2023 Toyota Highlander like the # e75ZR do require trimming but the EcoHitch part # EH35VR requires the least amount since the mounting flange is a little smaller so it would be best option probably. Or you can just remove the side underbody panels at the rear of the vehicle when you install the hitch and you wouldn't have to trim them.

  • Will EcoHitch Interfere With Kick Sensor and Allow for Larger Spare on 2021 Toyota Highlander
    The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # EH35VR may interfere with the Hands-free Liftgate sensor like all of the other hitches. Typically this means you will need to place your foot on either side of the receiver tube in order to activate the sensor. According to Torklift, this hitch will allow for an 18" or smaller spare. The only exception is the factory 20" low profile spare tire. If you would rather have a different hitch based on this information, I recommend the etrailer Trailer...

  • Will Hands-Free Liftgate Work on 2023 Toyota Highlander Limited When Installing Trailer Hitch
    By and large, the liftgate works for most people after hitch installation, you just need to kick your foot to the left or right of the receiver. And while there is a small possibility the function will be lost, the one that we've seen the most success with that fits your 2023 Toyota Highlander Limited is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # EH35VR. When we installed the # EH35VR on a '22 Highlander the liftgate did still work, so I'm confident your liftgate will still work when...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For A 2023 Toyota Highlander Limited Hybrid With A 20" Spare Tire
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C99FR will only work with 18" or smaller spare tires. You would need to use a hitch like the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # EH35VR instead.

  • Is There A Hitch That Will Allow A Full Size Spare Tire To Be Stored Under A 2023 Toyota Highlander?
    Yes there is! The hitch that will allow you to fit a full size spare under your 2023 Toyota Highlander Limited is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # EH35VR. There are other hitch options that will not allow a full size spare. The EcoHitch has shorter side flanges which allow the full size spare to fit.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2023 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
    The best hitch option for your 2023 Toyota Highlander hybrid would be the Curt part # C99FR as it offers all of the things you are looking for at the best price. The big advantage the EcoHitch part # EH35VR has it's additional tongue weight capacity but since that's not something that interests you it wouldn't be worth the extra money. The Curt works with your 18 inch spare as well.

  • Recommended Hitch for 2020 Toyota Highlander with 20 Inch Aluminum Wheel Spare Tire
    I recommend using the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # EH35VR, which will allow you to keep the spare mounted under the vehicle and gives you a 2 inch receiver that's perfect for carrying bikes. The EcoHitch # EH35VR will allow the 20 inch spare to stay installed under the vehicle. If you don't already have a bike rack that fits in a 2 inch hitch I recommend using the Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # Y36FR since...

  • Wiring Harness and Towing Package for 2020 Highlander XLE Hybrid
    Yes, the Tekonsha item # TK57VR wiring harness works with your 2020 Toyota Highlander XLE Hybrid. I would be glad to recommend a full towing set up for your Highlander. Starting with the trailer hitch receiver I recommend the EcoHitch item # EH35VR due to it being the only trailer hitch available for your Highlander that will allow you to store a full sized spare tire. I also recommend adding the Mounting Bracket for 7-Way item # 18138 to mount the 7-Way harness to the Ecohitch receiver...

  • Will The EcoHitch Interfere With The Liftgate Sensor And Spare Tire On A 2023 Toyota Highlander
    All trailer hitches, including the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # EH35VR, will interfere with the hands free liftgate sensor on your 2023 Toyota Highlander. That being said, you should still be able to wave your foot on either side of the receiver tube to activate the sensors. You just wouldn't get a response by waving right in front of the receiver tube. As for the spare tire, you would need to have one that's 18" or less in order for it to fit along side the trailer hitch....
