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.

Wiring Installation


Your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located in your rear cargo area on the passenger's side, plugs into the included wiring control module. Once you've made all of the necessary connections, insert the provided fuse into your vehicle's fuse panel.

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.

Note: The harness included with this hitch must be programmed at a dealer before the trailer lights will work. 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.

2017 Volvo XC90

Hitch came in two days with free shipping. Color printed instructions were included with the hitch and were very easy to follow.

Hitch took about 3.5 hours to install. I even followed the included instructions to program the car to use the wiring control box which was installed with the hitch. Easy and faster than going to the dealer. Required VIDA and a 3 day subscription from Volvo.

Overall very happy with my purchase from etrailer and I would buy it again from them. Thanks for making it as easy as possible.


This is a well designed and manufactured kit with extremely detailed instructions. The only hiccup that I encountered was when I removed the over-the-wheel moldings, a majority of the single-use molding clips snapped off. I just ordered some replacements off of [online].

Another note for buyers: after the Volvo technician updated the software, I tested the wiring connection before I left the dealership with a 7-pin plug with LED indicators. The indication that I received was a brief flash of all three LED every few seconds. I now understand that this is the automatic trailer sensing program. I turned off the automatic sensing setting in the console, and everything tested fine.

The hitch works wonderfully. I don't even notice that I have the cargo box attached except for the notice that the blind-spot system is deactivated due to the connected hitch item.



I am still impressed with the Stealth Hitch on my Volvo. It works perfectly with our cargo box, and even allows the lift gate to open without having to remove the cargo box.


We had a professional body shop install this hitch, works very well, as expected.

Volvo XC90

Great product and easy DIY installation on my Volvo XC90.

Volvo XC90

I recently purchased this product a year ago for my 2021 Volvo XC90 T6 AWD SUV to tow my two-place trailer (approx. 4,800LBS). I weighed out the option that Volvo provided with an electric break-away tow hitch and the tongue weight supported is lower which made this product the best choice for my towing Volvo needs. This was installed by my Volvo Dealer to ensure I didn't void any Volvo warranties provided by the manufacturer.



The trailer hitch setup has met my expectations with no issues. I would highly recommend this product to others who are in the market for your towing needs.


Amazing hitch! Love that it’s not visible when you don’t need it.


I will after install

2018 Volvo XC90

What an amazingly engineered product, from the fit and finish to the beautifully clear instructions! A little help from the You tube video for clarity and it was done. Everything came in two boxes and took about 2 1/2 hours start to finish. I thought initially that it was overpriced but for the quality and everything you need included it was well worth it.


Worked great and cam with very good ins tructions.

I absolutely love my stealth hitch


Install was straight forward and love the hidden look.

  • Best Hitch and Trailer Wiring for 2021 Volvo XC90
    Yes the Stealth Hitch # SH27FRT fits your 2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge T8. You will also need to take your XC90 to your local Volvo dealership so a technician can reprogram the computer to send the proper signal with your new wiring. This is a fairly common practice with complex wiring and computer systems in newer vehicles. This process is referred to flashing or reprogramming the computer to turn on the tow package.

  • Is there a Stealth Hitch for the 2024 Volvo XC90?
    Yes, there is! We actually have two that will fit your 2024 Volvo XC90. The difference between the two is one is designed for only using accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers.

  • Recommended Hidden Trailer Hitch for a 2022 Volvo XC90
    The only truly hidden trailer hitch option we offer for a 2022 Volvo XC90 is the Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver part # SH27FR. I know it cost a lot more than the other options but it does offer some very unique features such as a removeable receiver that will make for a completely factory finish when not in use. The cross tube is also hidden behind the bumper so it really does make the hitch invisible once installed. Please note, if you need to tow then you'll want to use the part...

  • Recommended Stealth Hitch for a 2023 Volvo XC90
    Yes, you can but you would need the Towing Kit w/ Ball Mount item # SH36FR. The 2" receiver that is included with the Stealth Hitches item # SH27FR can only be used for accessories like a bike rack. A better option for your 2023 Volvo XC90 is to install the Stealth Hitches item # SH27FRT. This is the same hitch as item # SH27FR but includes the necessary wiring harness and ball mount kit to tow with. Most uhaul trailers have a 4-flat connector so you will also need the Pollak 7 Pole...

  • 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. This particular carrier weighs 61lbs giving you a weight of 561lbs on the receiver which is under its 600lb capacity. You will need to verify the weight capacity of your Volvo as the weight of the Receiver # SH27FR (45lbs), the Carrier # 63153 (61lbs)...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver For a No Drill Installation On a 2016 Volvo XC90
    The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e53KR will require you to drill holes for mounting to your frame on your 2016 Volvo XC90. It will also require the enlargement of other existing holes to install the square bolt spacers. For a no drill installation I recommend the Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Towing Kit # SH27FRT. The Stealth receiver allows you to remove either the 2" receiver or the ball mount for a cleaner look without the low hanging assembly like you get with...

  • Are There Bike Rack Limits for Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch that Fits 2020 Volvo XC90
    When you have the hitch accessory opening installed on the Stealth Hitch part # SH27FRT for your 2020 Volvo XC90 you really can use any bike rack designed for a 2 inch hitch. The tongue weight capacity of this would easily handle the weight as it's rated for up to 600 lbs tongue weight. There really isn't a downside to this setup as you get a very high quality hitch setup with plenty of capacity that can be totally hidden when not in use.

  • Trailer Hitches that Fit 2020 Volvo XC90
    For the 2020 Volvo XC90 we have the Curt hitch part # C53HR that you referenced as a confirmed fit as well as the really nice Stealth option part # SH27FRT. This hitch is totally invisible when not in use as the lower portion of the hitch totally removes from the rest of it. It also comes with trailer wiring and a ball mount, so it covers everything you'd need to tow a trailer.

  • Recommended Hitch for 2018 Volvo XC90
    I'll start off by saying that most hitches are going to install in the same manner, but there are some features that set others apart. The Curt # C53HR is a fairly basic hitch and while I'm not familiar with the Volvo hitch, I can say that it's not really close to the Stealth Hitch # SH27FRT for a few reasons. The Stealth Hitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Towing Kit - Custom Fit - 2" # SH27FRT is a great option because it comes with everything you could need to either tow a small...

  • Hidden Hitch Options for 2017 Volvo XC90
    The Stealth hitch part # SH27FRT that fits your 2017 Volvo XC90 is the most hidden option we have and also has the towing capacity you need. We also have the Hidden Hitch part # DT82GR that is also totally hidden but it has a 3,500 lb capacity. We also have the slightly more visible Draw Tite part # 76194 which has the needed capacity. This only has the hitch opening hanging below the rear bumper so it's a pretty reasonable compromise that doesn't cost nearly as much as the Stealth.

  • Comparing Hidden Hitch and Stealth Hitches Trailer Hitch Receivers For a Volvo XC90
    Personally I prefer the Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Towing Kit # SH27FRT over the Hidden Hitch by Draw-Tite # DT82GR. Both these are confirmed to fit the 2016-2022 model years of the Volvo XC90. The Stealth Hitches receiver is made in the USA and I find has a much better quality. They use a durable stainless steel block for the connection parts under the rear fascia which I feel will last over the years versus the powder coated steel the Draw-Tite uses. Do note the...

This allows you to remove the receiver tube or ball mount when not needed providing you a clean factory appearance.

    The Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Towing Kit # SH27FRT along with all other receivers for your 2017 Volvo XC90 are not able to be used with a weight distribution hitch system. You will most likely need a 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # C40005 to replace the 2" ball included with the receiver. Or you can get a 2nd Ball Mount # 391BMU5S if you will be towing multiple trailers.
