If you would like to upgrade this rack receiver for towing, you will need to purchase the Stealth Hitches towing kit (SH82VR - sold separately). The ball mount included in this kit inserts into the center block of the hitch in place of the receiver attachment. A 2" hitch ball is included with the ball mount, making it ready to tow with out of the box.

  • Not rated for weight distribution systems

If you want to take your bikes to the trail with your family this summer, you have plenty of options. You can carry your bikes on top of your car with a roof rack, but that bulky rack can increase drag on your ride. You can use a trunk rack, but that's a pain to mount and it can scratch your car's paint. Or you can install a hitch on your ride and use a hitch-mounted bike rack to carry your bikes.


This rack receiver is designed to act as a mounting point for your hitch bike rack or cargo carrier. Just slide the shank of your carrier into the receiver for use, and when you're done you can not only remove the carrier, but the receiver as well, leaving your vehicle looking clean and unmodified.


Completely Hidden Design

Nothing can ruin the clean, stylish look of your vehicle like a giant piece of metal bolted beneath its bumper. Luckily, with the Stealth Hitches rack receiver, you never have to worry about messing up your vehicle's lines.


Removable receiver

This hitch installs behind your bumper, keeping the cross tube concealed and leaving only the hitch receiver visible. Even better, the receiver can be easily removed from the cross tube when it's not in use so that you won't see any trace of the hitch. This means that you can retain that clean, from-the-factory look for your ride, while still being able to carry your bikes and gear on the next family road trip.


Simple Set Up

The receiver can be attached or detached in seconds with no tools required. To insert the receiver, simply pop the base up into the stainless steel block at the center of the hitch until it automatically latches in place.


push lock

Be sure to then press the lock on the side of the block to fully secure the receiver. When you're finished carrying your bikes or cargo, use the included key to unlock the latch. Then turn the handle on the block clockwise and remove the receiver. You can stow the receiver in a safe place, like your vehicle's rear cargo area, or you can use a convenient carrying case (391CASER - sold separately).


hitch plug and center block

And when you're not using the receiver attachment, the included hitch plug covers the center block's opening to protect the hitch's body from dirt and debris.


Strict Safety Testing

This Stealth Hitches rack receiver meets and exceeds the safety standards set by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Even better, the receiver also meets the stricter regulations mandated for European safety testing.


This European testing includes more rigorous dynamic load testing in addition to traditional static load tests. In order to meet these stricter safety regulations, the Stealth Hitches rack receiver must have a Stealth Hitches ball mount (sold separately) inserted if you want to tow. These ball mounts are specifically designed to provide the tighter tolerances needed to fulfill the European requirements, resulting in a safe, rattle-free towing experience.


This testing ensures that each Stealth Hitches rack receiver can handle real-world conditions, letting you safely haul your cargo without worry.

Was pretty simple to assemble and the pictures in the instructions were very helpful. I really like the design as the hitch is only visible when in use. It was pretty tricky to put the bumper back on. Other than that it was smooth sailings.

Review from a similar Hidden Rack Receiver in Trailer Hitch


Just had the hitch installed. Plan on using it for my bike rack outside of winter season. Since it is winter and will not be using my bike rack, I have removed the receiving portion of the hitch. Wanted to maximize clearance, and this hitch is just below bumper. Previously owned uhaul hitch was several inches lower on 2014 Outback. Looks very slick, well made and solid. Rubberized lock and receiver attachment covers looks like they will prevent water and salt from entering the locking areas during the winter - tight fit. Receiver drops into hand with turn of release knob, a little awkward yo use when reaching under bumper facial that was cut away. No sign of a hitch when the receiver attachment is removed. Installers took about 1.5 hrs to attach.


Comments
The hitch has been great thus far. Easy on and off, especially with salt and snow. Then back on after a rain and melt. Its off for the winter now. A little rat on the hitch receiver, but the under car mount looks pretty free of rust.

Review from a similar Hidden Rack Receiver in Trailer Hitch


Decided to install the hitch myself after one installer quoted me $450 and another one quoted me $650. Using the supplied directions, I was able to knock it out in a little under 3 hours. Getting to the 5 screws in each wheel well would be easier if you remove the rear tires I have 20 inch wheels... and getting the bunker back on is a little scary too, but I managed.

Review from a similar Hidden Rack Receiver in Trailer Hitch


Very happy with both the rack and the experience with etrailer. Installation was fairly simple. Have the exterior styling kit and went on without a hitch. Get it?? Cut out of heat shield and fascia can be less than what's recommended I believe, but can determine what you need. For me I made a minimal cut and then finished cut after installing which was a bit more difficult, but worked.

Good design and build quality. The frame can be 100% hidden inside the rear bumper when the hitch is released. It gives you a perfect look of the car from rear end. The installation manual can be more detail and specific as it's per car model designed. I had to figure out a few areas myself, because I couldn't find the pictures in the manual, it took a lot of my time. I give it 5 stars. The only downside is it's a bit expensive.

I wanted to add a hitch to my Porsche Macan for my bike rack. etrailer had the hitch in stock and shipped promptly. I had the dealer do the installation, about 6 hours of their time, an unanticipated additional expense but will worth it. The Porsche dealer and I are impressed with the design and quality. It truly is invisible. Great product!!

Review from a similar Hidden Rack Receiver in Trailer Hitch


Installed it myself. 2-3 hours for anyone mechanical, with all the right tools on hand. The hitch fits well, seems well made and is sturdy. the materials provided as well as the install video were a great help. This hitch is expensive. I picked this over the others for design and the ease of use despite the sticker shock. I wish I knew the keys were inside the hitch itself. I spent a little too much time searching for it before by chance stumbling upon it. Hopefully it shows this in the instructions and I just missed it. The directions also do not specify this to my satisfaction, but you will have spare parts. The factory impact bar mounting brackets come off and are replaced with supplied brackets. I hope they are up to the task of the original factory design. The shipment was later than estimated, but the communication from etrailer was good after delivery.

This thing is a super well constructed and designed unit. Install took be about 2-3hrs and instructions were very good, if you have moderate DIY skills definitely doable. The best part is how easy and secure removing the receiver is.

Review from a similar Hidden Rack Receiver in Trailer Hitch


Great product - was hesitant at first because it was nearly double the price of other options, however, to have the ability of not seeing a hitch on the back of my BMW X5 M sport was more than worth the price. I actually tackled the installation myself due to a quote of nearly $400 at my local shop. I knocked it out in just a tad over an hour by myself in my garage with nothing more than a trim removal kit, some tools I already have, and the tutorial video they provide. Pumped to finally have a hitch for my bike racks on the back of my X5 instead of constantly using my wife’s SUV that we fitted with a cheaper hitch.

Review from a similar Hidden Rack Receiver in Trailer Hitch


If you want a hidden hitch for your performance vehicle then look no further. The hitch is very well made and solid. The included instructions are helpful, but there are some Youtube videos that are even more informative. Getting the bumper cover off the vehicle is a real challenge. I used the tips of wood shims to release the wheel arches plastic clips and bamboo skewers to release the rear gate clips. Disconnecting the PDC sensor cable is a big pain too. The whole process requires immense patience and attention to detail. Good luck with your installation.

Review from a similar Hidden Rack Receiver in Trailer Hitch


Overall a really nice rack solution and perfect for a Volvo V90. The install was moderately difficult but quite doable if you are at all handy. Only more challenging part was the block that bolts into the main bar was slightly oversized (or the bar was slightly too small) so it took some serious work with a rubber mallet to get it into the right position to put the bolts through it. (And between the good price on this hitch at etrailer and whatever the local rack retailer wanted to install it - I saved $[XX] buying it here and installing it myself - worth the effort). Oh - you do need a standard socket set and a good torque wrench and a 15/16 socket, which fortunately my neighbor had - it’s a larger size than most sets have. But even with those challenges, this is a great solution for a rear-mount bike rack on a Volvo V90. Love that it’s completely invisible when you pop out the hitch connector.

Review from a similar Hidden Rack Receiver in Trailer Hitch


This rack is fantastic. Fits absolutely perfectly behind the bumper. Not visible at all with the hitch attachment disconnected. I did this install myself and it took just over an hour. I watched the video twice and then used the printed instructions in the box. There wasn't a Telluride-specific video at the time of my install, but the video for the Palisade is exactly the same instructions since the vehicle is exactly the same underneath. The video is a huge help in terms of knowing what to do, where to look, and in what order. I did this install in my driveway as I don't have a lift and wanted to try and do it myself. That said, I did get a set of the Rhino Ramps and it really helps to have the vehicle up so you can move your arms and use tools under the vehicle. I am sure you could do the install without ramps, but it is way easier to use a long handled torque wrench with the vehicle up on ramps. The ramps are great, I have used them with my diesel F250 (very heavy) and they are super sturdy. Definitely look at the instructions as there are some tools that are very important. Definitely want a 3/4" open ended wrench. Even if you have two ratchets with 3/4" sockets, the clearance for the bolt under the vehicle when you are torquing the bolts will be much easier with an open ended wrench. For the exhaust, you need a strap. I would definitely suggest a cambuckle strap as it makes lowering the exhaust incredibly easy. A ratchet strap will work, but is not as easy to release a ratchet strap as it is a cambuckle strap. You are using the strap to lower the exhaust not raise it, so you will have an easier time with a strap that lets out easier. Don't be intimidated by the exhaust isolators. It is easy. Do get some silicone spray lube as the instructions recommend. You can likely pull them off by hand with some silicone on there. You can definitely put them back on by hand. Bottom line, this is a great system, perfectly fit to the vehicle, and totally unseen when not in use.

Just had hitch installed today 04/15/21. I haven’t used it with my bikes yet but I can’t wait. I have a audi Q5 2018, I love the stealth design and that the hitch mount can be removed, so it doesn’t take away from the appearance of my car.

Awesome receiver hitch that maintains the look of the car. The installation instructions are very detailed and thorough. If you feel intimidated by the idea of removing the fascia, just follow the directions closely, take your time and you’ll find its really not that big of an ordeal. Having the padded bench ready is key (pic).

Review from a similar Hidden Rack Receiver in Trailer Hitch


Not too bad for a 10 out of 10 difficulty install. The hitch holes line up perfectly with the vehicle and the quality is top notch (to be expected for the premium price). I've installed hitches on a few prior year Audi wagons and the newer vehicles( 2017+) are the easiest so far. If you're not a fan of cutting into your rear bumper, don't worry as you can't see these mods even from a distance. Also, you can get by with smaller cutouts than the instructions and still insert/lock/remove the hitch, but the template does provide clean lines for the mod.

Review from a similar Hidden Rack Receiver in Trailer Hitch


My only complaint with this Stealth hitch is how the bumper bar attaches. It is bolted onto the main hitch, but other hitches like the Ecohitch have the bumper attachment point welded as part of the main hitch. I was able to install it ok with the proper tools (17mm open end wrench and 15mm deep socket). However, there was slight contact between the aluminum bumper and the steel hitch. I used some vinyl tubing cut lengthwise as an insulator between those two metals to avoid any corrosion. I do like the ease of removing the hitch attachment with the locking mechanism. That's much nicer than the bolted on piece on other brands.


Comments
Thanks for sharing your installation experience Alan! The Stealth Hitches for the Tesla Model 3 now come with additional washers to prevent the steel hitch and aluminum bumper from touching.

    The Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver part # 391AUDQ319 is my recommendation for a 2019 Audi Q3. It has a removable receiver tube for a completely hidden install while not in use and a 2" opening so there are plenty of bike racks to choose from. I recommend the Thule EasyFold XT Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes part # TH903202 as the best electric bike rack option due to the integrated ramp for loading and wheels for help to and from the vehicle.
