Concealed Cross Tube Hitch and Bike Rack For 2019 Volkswagen Golf R Model


I have a 2019 VW golf R model. What do you recommend for a trailer hitch? I dont really want something big and bulky on my VW.


Expert Reply:

I recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7332 which is a concealed cross tube design so the only part of the hitch that is visible once installed is the receiver instead of a the bulky cross tube. The EcoHitch is the only brand that provides a 2" receiver which will give you more versatility when it comes to accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers. There are more options for accessories with 2" shanks compared to 1-1/4".

If you need a bike rack, I recommend Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches part # HR1450Z which is a platform rack so it easier to take the bikes on and off. It carries 2 bikes regardless of the frame design and includes the locks to protect your investment. I have attached a video for your reference.
