Completely Hidden for a Clean, Factory Look

The EcoHitch Invisi trailer hitch is designed to be completely out of sight. The hitch cross tube bolts onto your vehicle's frame, behind the body of your vehicle. No welding is required. The receiver portion of the hitch will sit just behind the factory knockout panel in your bumper. Just pop the panel off to tow and put it back on again for a from-the-factory look when you're done using the hitch.


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

I ordered this for my 2011 Volt. Once I received all of my parts, it installed really well.
My license plate bracket was missing. they found it after I contacted customer support and they shipped it out that evening.
So all in all 2 weeks to get the order to me. (life is what it is people)

The hardest step for me was removing the bumper cover around the tail lamps.
(I admit to breaking a horizontal tab on each side of the cover, while removing it)
Technical note, my 2011 does not have the extra harness faster that must be removed.
I watched the etrailer installation video and that was helpful on a few points.
My car has the backup camera.This means that I had additional wire harnesses coming down the center behind my license plate mount.
I addressed this by using zip tie straps to re-align the harnesses and drilling a couple of holes into the impact bar on the bumper cover to attach to.
See my picture for my routing details.
I also installed safety cables similar as to what is shown in the e trailer installation video.
I ordered the 10 inch version and they successfully come up over the top from behind the hitch bar so that if they ever get used in an emergency, my rear cover will avoid as much damage as possible.
I found that drilling the pilot holes for the receiver access area was best done off the car to avoid any unseen wire harnesses.

I am happy with the end result and it looks good.
the stock license plate lights barely light up my rear plate, so I am off to engineer a different solution for my car's plate. What is included works sufficiently for a plug and play option as long as you do not have a back up camera. My back up camera is what remains in the way...

I plan to use this to haul my 4x8 folding trailer while taking kiddos to and from college.

This setup cost less than one round trip worth of fuel for my 09 suburban, with travel to the university.
Win - win for me


Comments
it has been a year and no issues. I replaced the included License Plate kit with a 12 inch Stainless Steal Piano hinge and a cheap plastic License plate mounting bracket. this setup clears the Backup Camera and looks very much like it was OEM. I used some T-Nuts with the prongs to attach the Hinge to the Bumper cover. drilled a hole first and T-Nut went in from behind the cover to cinch it to the plastic. anyway no complaints from me and it has been a great success. Cheers!!

2015 Chevrolet Volt

CONFIRMED FIT FOR 2015. After being told that it wouldn’t fit, I bought it anyway and it bolted up no problem. My volt is fully loaded with all the parking sensors and stuff and it all still works fine. I would suggest drilling all 3 holes at 4” in the bumper so you’ll have an easier time getting the pin in hole. No idea why they tell you to drill smaller holes on the sides. License plate bracket didn’t fit great but that’s easily fixed. Overall it’s a great design and I’m happy I spent the extra cash on the hidden hitch.


Comments
One year later and still going strong. I’ve towed and hauled all sorts of stuff behind this car and although the mileage is awful mid 20s with two bikes the hitch works amazing and I love that you don’t see it when you’re not using it. The looks you get launching a boat with a volt are priceless.

This hitch receiver works just as advertised. The tutorial video provides good instructions and the written instructions suppliment the video well. I'd advise looking at both to be thorough. A few things to note, when removing the rear bumper fascia, be careful of the top most side clips as mine broke easily. Also, the license plate flips down fairly well when you have a ball hitch installed but it does obstruct the backup camera so maybe consider relocating the license plate if you launch boats a lot and wanna use the backup camera. The install was really easy for two guys to DIY with typical tools + the large hole saw. The Volt tows my 13' fishing boat like a champ so far.

  • What Size Hitch Opening Does EcoHitch that Fits Behind Bumper of 2014 Chevy Volt Have
    The EcoHitch for your 2014 Chevy Volt that fits behind the rear license plate is only available in a 2 inch hitch size with part # 306-X7186. The 2 inch hitch size is the most popular size for accessories so you'd have more options with this.

  • EcoHitch Trailer Receiver for a 2012 Chevrolet Volt
    I recommend the EcoHitch Trailer Hitch Receiver item # 306-X7186 for your 2012 Chevy Volt. After going through the instructions I can verify that it does not attach to your trunk and only attaches to the frame of your car inside the bumper beam. I have linked an installation video. This receiver has 2k lbs capacity trailer weight and a 300 lbs maximum tongue weight. The EcoHitch receiver is made specifically for the 2012 Chevrolet Volt, it does not fit on the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze. There...

  • Does EcoHitch for 2013 Chevy Volt Have Classification
    The EcoHitch part # 306-X7186 does not have an official hitch Classification but it is the most similar to a Class III due to it's 2 inch hitch size and weight capacities. Hitch Classes are really just ways to organize the hitches by size and capacity so if you already know that info the Class doesn't offer you anything beyond that.

  • Best Trailer Hitch for 2012 Chevy Volt
    We do have installation instructions for the EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7186 and I have sent them to you in a separate email. As you mentioned in your question, there are 3 trailer hitches available for your 2012 Chevy Volt and they are all quite a bit different from each other. Even though it does require the longest installation process I really like the completely hidden design of the EcoHitch # 306-X7186 that you referenced. The 2 inch receiver actually installs...

  • Stealth or Hidden Hitch for 2015 Chevrolet Volt
    I have a solution for you, but the EcoHitch # 306-X7186 is not a fit on the 2015 Chevy Volt. Often times there are subtle changes to the frame of the vehicle that make hitches incompatible with different years of the same models of cars, and this appears to be one of those cases. However, you can still use the EcoHitch Stealth # 306-X7180 to give yourself the same hidden hitch that is pretty much not noticeable until you attach the receiver to the hitch when it is in use.

  • Bolt Size of Receiver Tube Bolt of the EcoHitch # 306-X7180 on a 2012 Chevy Volt
    I believe you are referring to the invert adapter where the hitch tube connects to the rest of the EcoHitch Stealth # 306-X7180. That bolt is a 1/2” x 2-1/2” bolt. You are correct that this is a single point of failure. I went ahead and attached photos of this bolt attached to the receiver tube. If you wish to have a more stable hitch receiver tube connection point, on your 2012 Chevy Volt, I recommend the EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 306-X7186. The receiver...

  • Differences Between Trailer Hitch Options for 2014 Chevy Volt
    The 100 lb figure you mention for the Curt # C11221 is actually the tongue weight capacity of the hitch, which is the maximum amount of downward force that could safely be applied to the trailer ball. Typically the tongue weight of a given trailer is between 10 and 15% of its fully loaded weight. Given that your trailer weighs a maximum of 400 lbs, the most tongue weight you'd likely see is 60 lbs, which is well within the capacity of the Curt # C11221. The EcoHitch # 306-X7180 and #...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for Towing Small Kayak Trailer With 2012 Chevy Volt
    From a convenience standpoint, the # 306-X7186 EcoHitch would probably be easier to live with, as you wouldn't need to remove the receiver when it's not being used but because there'd be a 10 inch height difference between the hitch and the coupler height, and because none of the ball mounts we offer that have the appropriate drop would be long enough to clear the rear bumper, you'll be better off going with the removable receiver model, part # 306-X7180. To figure out the ride that the...
