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. Technical Support

At we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers.

We've installed it, we've wired it, and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

This completely hidden hitch keeps your vehicle looking like it just came off the assembly line. Remove the receiver for a fully concealed look when you're not carrying your bikes to the trail. Only for use with hitch-mounted racks and carriers.


I was looking for an alternative and economical option to the expensive factory volvo hitch which tucks in below the rear bumper. This stealth hitch does that job perfectly. Since I got it last year, I have used it a handful of times to tow a four bicycle rack with no issues. When not towing, I find it easy to take it out and store it away. All for 3rd of the cost. Not fit for heavy towing, as per the product specifications but perfect for all those looking for light towing options.


Easy install. Slightly pricey, but was nice to have free shipping and the option to hide your hitch is worth it.

2022 Volvo XC90

The hitch fit perfectly on my 2022 Volvo XC90. Installation was straightforward, took about 90 minutes, and the video and instructions were very helpful (I have some experience working on cars). Make sure to have the proper tools, especially sockets/torque wrench, and have a second person to help. I'll be looking forward to hanging my bike rack and heading south for the winter!

Product works great. I use it regularity for my bike rack. The hitch is removable, but I’ve always left it on


I installed a StealthHitch on my Volvo XC90 this weekend and I am very happy with its fit and function. The installation wasn’t too hard overall but it was definitely tedious. Make sure to have a second set of hands to help with the removal and reinstall of the rear bumper.


Great product. Easy to install. Great instructions. Fast delivery and awesome. Highly recommend


The product works well and is not visible when not in use. The installation went well, due to the instructions provided and supplemental YouTube videos. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who does not want to spend extra for the OEM Volvo solution but still wants an aesthetically pleasing hitch system. We use the system to carry a Yakima bike rack with a four bike capacity.


Is very good quality and easy installation it took me 2 hours for the installation. Great product the stealth look was a good choice.


i love this hitch and its functionality.its totaly invisible,except when you install adapters.i would highly recommend wasinstalled on 2019 Volvo XC 90,did installation my self with provided instructions and it went need to try another one for Mini.thank you for great product


This is a fantastic hitch rack. Install was pretty straightforward and I did it myself in the garage in about a hour. There is a [online] video that walks you through every step. I bought some plastic pry tools on [online] for pulling the body panels off and used tin sheers to do all of the trimming. I have used the rack now for one year. Only have used it with a bike rack (1-up) and up to two mtn bikes. Works fantastic and is completely invisible when hitch mount is removed. Only negative is how expensive it is.. but you get what you pay for.

Volvo XC90

I really like the way the stealth hitch is hidden when not in use on my Volvo XC90.


Fit perfect. Between the instructions and Visio it was easy to install and works great!


Fantastic option for those that don't want a tow hitch sticking out of the back of their SUV 24/7.
Instructions provided were 95% accurate. Some minor changes for clarification would greatly improve the instructions.


Great product that my mechanic had no trouble installing

2020 Volvo XC90

This was my first hitch installation attempt. The documentation was very helpful and gave me confidence to install it on my new car. Everything went as expected with no surprises.

2017 Volvo XC90

Fast shipping, great packaging, really good instructions, really simple install. Make sure you have all your sockets handy.


Very happy with our purchase. fits our Volvo XC90 2018 very well.

2020 Volvo XC90

Fantastic, but expensive.
It seems they
are taking advantage of having a monopoly on a hidden feature.
If you are brave enough to take off the bumper and some trim, it is a pretty straight forward install. Probably 2 hours.


Thanks! Super fast shipping! Ordered at the beginning of the week, installed and ready to go for the weekend.

  • Maximum Weight Capacity For 500LB Cargo Carrier Used W/ Stealth Hitches Reciever On 2021 Volvo XC90
    The Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver # SH27FR for your 20121 Volvo XC90 is rated for up to 600lbs of tongue weight. With a 24x60 Reese Cargo Carrier # 63153 rated for up to 500lbs that is the most you will be able to load on the carrier.

  • Is Reprogramming Necessary for Stealth Hitches Wiring Installation on 2018 Volvo XC90 T8
    Reprogramming will be necessary with the installation of the Towing Kit w/ Ball Mount and Trailer Wiring # SH36FR. Unlike other wiring harnesses, this includes a wiring control module that you will plug your vehicle wiring harness into. Without taking it to the dealer to be programmed the trailer lights will not work. This wiring harness is also different when compared to the # 118683 since it will give you a 7-way along with a 4-way adapter and not just a 4-way. If you know you will be...

  • Difference Between Stealth Hitch SH27FRT and SH27FR Plus the SH36FR
    There is no difference. The # SH27FRT includes the hitch with the accessory-only receiver, as well as the ball mount needed for towing and the wiring kit. The # SH27FR would include only the hitch and the accessory-only receiver while the # SH36FR is the towing kit that includes the wiring and the towing ball mount which are both vehicle-specific like the hitch. The price differential is just a reflection of what Stealth Hitch charges us for the product. You can purchase the # SH27FRT...

  • Can Stealth Hitch SH27FR Tow a Small Boat When Installed on 2018 Volvo XC90

    Yes, you can but you would need the Towing Kit w/ Ball Mount item # SH36FR.
