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. 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. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

Package arrived earlier than expected. Easy installation and I'm loving the custom fit hidden hitch. Appreciate the fact the they've included an expanding trim rivet because as expected the old one broke..

- EH44FR

This hitch was installed on a 2020 BMW X5 SUV. I spent about a day to install, but it went well. The videos were very helpful. I then towed a BMW GTL 1600 motorcycle on a trailer about 4000 miles and everything went very smoothly. Very happy with the hitch.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation with Least Amount of Modification on a 2013 BMW X5
    From what you described you're either looking for the EcoHitch # EH44FR which doesn't require fascia trimming but it does replace the OEM impact structure behind the bumper, or the Draw-Tite # 75600 which is the only hitch that lets you reinstall the impact structure, but it does require fascia trimming. I personally like the EcoHitch option here better because you don't have to modify anything. With all of the hitches available for your 2013 BMW X5 the impact structure needs to be removed...
