Note: The included receiver attachment is only for hitch-mounted accessories and cannot be used for towing. To tow with this hitch, you must use the included ball mount attachment.


This Stealth Hitches trailer hitch includes everything you need to hook up your trailer for towing. The ball mount pops into the hitch's center block so you can attach your trailer's coupler to the hitch ball. The wiring harness lets you power your trailer's lights. And the safety chain loops let you attach your trailer's safety chains. A receiver attachment is included as well for those times you need to use a bike rack or cargo carrier instead of towing your trailer. This all-in-1 solution saves you the headache of scrambling for missing parts, so you can get on the road faster than ever.


Completely Hidden Design

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


hitch in use comparison

This hitch installs behind your bumper, keeping the cross tube concealed and leaving only the ball mount visible. Even better, the ball mount can be easily removed from the cross tube when it's not in use, so 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 tow your trailer on the next family road trip.


This hitch also comes with a removable 2" square receiver, which can be used to mount any variety of hitch accessories, like your bike rack or cargo carrier.


Simple Set Up

Both the ball mount attachment and receiver attachment can be installed and removed in seconds with no tools required. Simply pop the selected attachment's base up into the stainless steel block at the center of the hitch until it automatically latches in place.


center block locking

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


hitch plug and center block

And when you're not using an 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 trailer hitch meets and exceeds the safety standards set by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Even better, the hitch also meets the more demanding regulations mandated for European safety testing.


While the USA only uses a static load test for trailer hitches (wherein a weight is exerted on the receiver at different angles to simulate a tow load), this Stealth Hitches trailer hitch undergoes European dynamic load testing as well. These dynamic tests actually move the load on the hitch, cycling it back and forth to simulate your car starting and stopping while towing. This testing is more rigorous than static load tests, and may result in a higher capacity hitch.


ball mount vs ball mount

To pass these tests, the Stealth Hitches trailer hitch is built with tighter tolerances than a standard receiver hitch, minimizing play in the towing setup. In a standard hitch, the ball mount, which provides the connection point for your trailer, inserts into a square receiver. Because all hitches and mounts are made with slightly different tolerances, this type of setup will inherently encounter some rattle and play in the connection. The Stealth Hitches ball mount, on the other hand, connects directly to the hitch body, snugly fitting into the secure center block. This firm, dependable connection minimizes play to create a safer and more enjoyable towing experience.


This testing ensures that each Stealth Hitches trailer hitch can handle real-world conditions, letting you safely tow your trailer or haul your cargo without worry.


Wiring Installation

wiring

The included wiring splices into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located in your rear cargo area, on the driver's side. Once you've made all of the necessary connections, insert the provided fuse into the in-line fuse holder.


Once installation is complete, the 7-way connector will mount beneath your hitch. A mounting bracket is included to attach the connector to your hitch.


7 way connector on hitch

It is recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections - the plugs on your automobile and the 7-way connector itself - to help prevent corrosion.

It’s already showing rust in the receiver that’s spends half the year in the garage. The receiving portion of the hitch is only used for moving my bikes around during the summer. I can’t imagine what it looks like in the bumper.

The installation directions were pretty good, and they even sent color paper copies of them. However, don't believe the time estimation of 2 hours it provides. Ended up taking me closer to 8. Overall, really pleased and glad I went with the stealth hitch.

Review from a similar Hidden Receiver w/ Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch


This hitch is the bomb diggity & is virtually invisible when not in use. The OEM hitch for the Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy is such an eyesore in comparison & you only need spend a few more bucks to get this gem of a hitch. For those wondering if you can do a solo install without a lift. Yes you can, I'm 44 and weigh a buck fifty & had no issues doing it alone. If you understand how to utilize leverage you'll be fine.

Review from a similar Hidden Receiver w/ Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch


I pulled up to a trailer rental place and the agent asked how in the heck are you going to hook up a trailer, you don’t have a hitch? So I pulled out my Stealth Hitches receiver, plugged it in and the agent goes “That’s the coolest thing I’ve ever seen! Having installed the Stealth Hitch myself I found it extremely easy to do and I was especially impressed by the design. When I took it to my Volvo dealer to have the OEM Volvo backup computer programmed to my car I showed the dealer and he was so impressed that he recommends it to his customers over the OEM hitch.

Review from a similar Hidden Receiver w/ Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch


Best looking and best performing hitch I've ever used. You get used to the clunking of a regular receiver banging against the hitch pin, but when it's gone you definitely notice. There is much less slop when starting and stopping, giving a very solid, connected feeling to the trailer. I've had it installed for over a year through a Wisconsin winter and I can still attach and remove the trailer hitch without needing to pull out a hammer. Wiring also works great.

Review from a similar Hidden Receiver w/ Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch


I love this hitch for so many reasons. The main one is the wow factor people have when I say I have a hitch but it's hidden beneath the cover. Just a cool and unique way to get the job done. Towed my boat, trailer and bicycles.

Review from a similar Hidden Receiver w/ Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch


This is the perfect hitch for my Tesla Model3, I found excellent instructions on Youtube so the installation was strait forward. I especially appreciate that it comes with Bothe a 2" ball and 2" receiver that mount securely to the installed assembly. The connection to the chassy of the car is solid so there is no clunking noise as I tow my trailer with my silent Tesla.

Review from a similar Hidden Receiver w/ Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch


I installed this on our 2020 Outback. I like the design and it is totally hidden. I did have a problem with the holes on the tabs that insert into the chassis channels not quite lining up with the holes on the channels. I used a round file to slightly slot the channel holes so it wasn't too bad, but still took extra time. Also, the instructions call for lowering the mufflers but this is not necessary. You can tighten the bolts into the chassis channels with the mufflers in place by using a u-joint with your socket.

Ive used it a few times and it has worked great. No complaints.

Review from a similar Hidden Receiver w/ Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch


Like a friend of mine used to say "neater than sliced bread". I guess that dates me. While I haven't used it yet, the instructions were excellent ( I also watched a YouTube video) and I installed it alone during this period of social distancing. The only difficulty I had was the 90 foot pounds of torque required on the horizontal bolts, but I did it. And just for any DIY folks, I have included a photo of my DIY hitch lift. It's a hinged box mounted on a floor jack which is sitting on a roller platform. I let me tuck the hitch over the exhaust and lift it up.

Review from a similar Hidden Receiver w/ Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch


The quality of the packaging, installation instructions, and hitch itself were top notch. Installation was easy, although it does require a visit to the dealer for programming when installed on a Volvo V90. I'd share a picture, but there's nothing to see! Highly recommend!

Review from a similar Hidden Receiver w/ Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch


Everything went well during my installation. The video was extremely helpful. Missing two I believe 8-32 screws that hold electrical connector into its socket. No problem as we had in our garage. Definitely suggest this hitch over any other available if you want to keep your car looking great when not in use.

Fine so far Ive only used it with a plat form carrier to carry rental lawn equipment.

I know this is an expensive hitch but if your looking for the cleanest look and to not have the tongue and ball sticking out, all the time, to hit your shins on, this is the hitch! Works great and is completely, 100%, you can't see it, HIDDEN.

Very pleased with the Stealth Hitch for my 2020 Volvo XV60 from etrailer -- delivered in a timely fashion and very precise fit and quality construction of the hitch. Installation instructions were precise and easy to follow (for my "shade tree mechanic" skill level)

Review from a similar Hidden Receiver w/ Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch


The hitch and all parts were delivered to the schedule that I was given when purchased. I watched the install videos on the specific hitch that I purchased on a 2020 Palasade and I have a 2021 but it was all the same. I installed the hideaway hitch and light connections in 2 1/2 hours. Follow the video and you won’t go wrong. I did have to modify the 2 washers that go on the passenger side to hold the hitch to the frame. I used a dremel to cut one side of the washer flat. It would be good if the washers came ready in the kit. The fit was perfect and I used it today to pull my trailer. I would attach a picture but you wouldn’t see anything. LMAO!!!!!

Review from a similar Hidden Receiver w/ Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch


Installed this hitch on my 2021 Palisade on Saturday. The instructions were great and left little to no surprises. Hitch fit perfectly and feels very solid. The only issues I had were with the washers that go on the bolts that go through the frame. There were places where the washer was too big to fit. I needed to grind (3) washers down to get them to fit out of 8 total. I also initially had some of the wiring wrong, but a call to tech support this morning had that problem solved quickly. Overall I am extremely happy with the product.

Review from a similar Hidden Receiver w/ Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch


The hitch is well made although on the 2020 you will need to cut a small opening on the underside of the bumper to allow the tow bar to access the locking mechanism opening. Managed to fit by myself in the garage with the help of a floor jack. The downside (hence 4stars) is the kit was sent with 6 of the wrong bolts with incorrect thread, 12mm but the course not fine (M12x1.25) that is required. They start but get tight fast. Had to buy a tap to clean up the thread. Called etrailer but they said call Stealth hitch directly. They shipped the right bolts. How many other kits out there with the wrong bolts ?

I just got the hitch installed... It's awesome. All functions as advertised.. Cosmetically does not alter my Palisades rear bumper look. Dealing with etrailer.com was a seamless experience. Very professional. Very knowledgeable. Would not hesitate to use trailer.com in the future..

Good product, has a 2” riser, would be better if had a higher riser since the hitch sits so low.
