Hidden Design for a Clean, Factory Look

The EcoHitch Stealth trailer hitch is designed to be completely out of sight when you're not towing. The hitch's cross tube bolts onto your vehicle's frame, behind your rear bumper. No drilling or welding is required. Once installed, the cross tube will be completely concealed and only the receiver will be visible beneath your bumper. But unlike other hitches with hidden cross tubes, the Stealth goes one further. You can remove the receiver portion of the hitch for a completely out-of-sight setup. To mount the receiver, just insert it up into the access port that is built into the cross tube. Secure the receiver to the hitch with the supplied bolt and washers. When you're done towing, just remove the receiver portion to return your vehicle to its clean, factory appearance.


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 stand 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 Stealth trailer hitch is carefully researched and strength tested for a durable, high-quality hitch that can resist damage while on the road.

2017 BMW X5

I had the Ecohitch Stealth hitch receiver installed on our 2017 BMW X5 right away by my independent BMW mechanic, who had no issues performing the task. I chose not to do it myself because installation was more involved than other hitches I've experienced (this one required removing the bumper system's fascia and replacing the factory cross member). I use the hitch only for a cargo platform. Together, they have exceeded my expectations for carrying inflatable kayaks (uninflated) and for moving my daughter about 1000 miles: they are plenty sturdy and very capable!




by:

Arrived on time. All parts were included and no damage during shipping.
I would order from these guys again.

Thanks

Awesome hitch easy to install. Installed on my BMW X5. No bumper modifications needed. Like the ability to remove the hitch for the winter.

Perfect Hitch for my BMW F15. The best part is the stealth mode when it's not being used. Highly recommend!

2013 BMW X5

Instructions aren’t quite correct for the 2013 BMW X5. You don’t need to take off the tail light assembly, there is only 1 screw behind the reflectors, there are 4 pop rivers in the fender wall and there are plastic caps on the top 2 posts of the impact bar on both sides that need to be removed to access the nuts. Also you need to cut out the underside of the underside bumper fascia a bit-where you cut is not seen unless you are under the car though.

Overall great product and easy install.

Other than that, great product and easy to install!




by:

Great product. Installation went easily and it is nice that no modification was needed to my SUVs bumper-

It’s heavy and arrived in a mashed up box that looked like it had been through battle. Packaging could be more robust to protect this heavy steel fabrication.

Easy to install. Hides away completely. Great product!

  • Should I Use Eco-Hitch To Tow 3,000 Lb Trailer With 2015 BMW X5
    Since your trailer's dry weight is 4,000 lbs I do not recommend to use a the EcoHitch - 2015 BMW X5 part # 306-X7265 because your tongue weight before the trailer is even loaded could be between 400-600 lbs. I recommend to use the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit part # 75600 which will allow you a 600 lb tongue weight but that is still probably not going to be enough for the 17-20 RV trailer considering once you have it loaded the tongue weight will be more. If it's...

  • Installing EcoHitch Stealth Hitch Receiver on 2013 BMW X5 i35 Sport
    The EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7265 that you referenced does not require any fascia or bumper cutting on your 2013 BMW X5 for installation, and it's actually the only hitch available for this vehicle that doesn't. While you won't need to cut into the fascia, you will need to temporarily remove the bumper and permanently remove the impact structure for mounting. The hitch itself will essentially take the place of the impact structure to maintain support and safety....

  • Will the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Fit a 2017 BMW X5 40e
    As long as your 2017 BMW X5 40e doesn't have the M Performance package then yes, the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7265 will fit your vehicle. According to my research your 40e has the iPerformance package which is just a fancy way of saying it is a hybrid. The M Performance package looks to be a sports package. They aren't really the same thing but it also seems like BMW let's people combine different packages so just be sure that you don't have the M Performance and...

  • Does Draw-Tite Hitch 75600 Require Bumper Fascia Trimming on 2016 BMW X5
    Yes, Draw-Tite hitch # 75600 does require rear fascia trimming for installation on the 2016 BMW X5. The linked photo shows you an underneath view of the trimmed fascia. The normal above-ground view shown in the second photo gives you a better real-world perspective on the car's appearance after installation. The EcoHitch # 306-X7265 which fits the 2016 BMW X5 (except for the M Performance models) does not require you to cut the bumper, nor is any drilling required. The installation does...

  • 2016 BMW X5 XDrive40e Trailer Hitch Recommendation
    The trailer hitch fits we offer for your 2016 BMW X5 without the M package would be what you'd want for your Xdrive40e model. For that I really like the Draw Tite you mentioned part # 75600. This is a mostly hidden trailer hitch with great towing capacities. If you'd prefer a totally hidden hitch when not in use the EcoHitch part # 306-X7265 is the way to go. When not in use you simply take out the attachment for the hitch opening and it's totally out of sight.

  • Is There Lower Fascia Trimming Required to Install Hitch on 2018 BMW X5
    For your 2018 BMW X5 lower fascia trimming will be required to install either the Draw Tite part # 75600 or the EcoHitch part # 306-X7265 you referenced as well. Due to the design of the lower fascia on your vehicle there's no way to fit a hitch through it without trimming.

  • How To Mount a Trailer Connector To A EcoHitch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    In order to mount a trailer connector onto the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7265 you can use the Eclipse Magnetic Mounting Bracket part # 306-X6019 if you have a 4-way trailer connector or the Eclipse Magnetic Mounting Bracket part # 306-X6020 if you have a 7-way trailer connector. This will provide you with a secure option to mount your trailer connector and you will not have to do any drilling into the hitch or vehicle for this because the mounts are magnetic.

  • Does the EcoHitch for the 2017 BMW X5 Require Fascia Trimming?
    I reached out to the folks over at EcoHitch and the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" part # 306-X7265 that you looked at will not require you to cut the rear fascia on your 2017 X5. This hitch also has a removable receiver tube opening so when not in use will not affect the look of your X5 at all. If you need wiring the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness w/ 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 119250KIT is a solid choice and it also doesn't...

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for 2017 BMW X5
    For trailer wiring for your 2017 BMW X5 we have universal style wiring kits but the best option is the ZCI kit part # 119250KIT as it does not require any splicing to the vehicle wiring to install. Instead it uses sensors that you attach to the wires to get the correct signal. We had the chance to install this kit on a similar 2015 X5 as yours, which I attached an install video to this page for you to check out.

  • Will the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit a 2016 BMW X5 M-Sport
    The best trailer hitch option we have for a 2016 BMW X5 M-Sport is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75600 which like the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver has a hidden design. That said, the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receivers won't fit models with the M-Sport. In regards to trailer wiring, the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 119250KIT is the best option and the only one that won't require splicing into any wires.
