Hidden Cross Tube for a Clean, Factory Look

The EcoHitch Hidden trailer hitch is designed to be as inconspicuous as possible. The hitch's cross tube bolts onto your vehicle's frame, behind your rear bumper. No drilling or welding is required. Once the hitch is installed, only the receiver will be visible beneath your bumper. This means that your vehicle can maintain its stylish, from-the-factory look, and you won't have to do any major modifications to its body or frame.


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

This has been the best DIY experience so far, and I'm hardly super handy! Like many of us, would usually prefer the mechanic, who knows the best do it (some extra $$ is worth the piece of mind), but this time it was different. I've done plenty of research on this and the preparation was key. Ours was a 2017 Subaru Forester - I knew I didn't want to go with the OEM hitch (1.25 inch receiver) from the dealer & neither did I like the exposed crossbar with the Curt/Drawtite hitches, which is what the local hitch shops would offer. Read plenty on subaru forums, reviews on etrailer and decided to go with the Eco hitch (completely hidden) and DIY route. And boy, isn't etrailer an amazing website/resource for this stuff! I called them before ordering to make sure they had the item in stock, ordered Sunday, arrived Wednesday... installed next Sunday! Their detailed installation videos and product reviews were spot on.. I watched the video a few times (which was great & even better than the instruction manual), made notes, gathered all the tools including the sockets ahead of time & had a very good friend help out (who also had majority of the tools). Its definitely a 2-man job. You could probably pull it off doing yourself if you have the time & the right planning with holding the hitch etc. I won't go too much into the installation process (plenty of videos for that), but we went the bumper removal route - took us ~3 hours. I also installed the tekonsha wiring harness in that time (excellent installation video again on etrailer but I ended up buying on amazon as I wanted to bundle with other orders). The only difficulty was holding the hitch in place while putting the washers/nuts on. Couldn't get one bolt/nut torqued all the way down, as the bolt was rotating too. Got the local uhaul guy to fix it, who quickly removed it, tried a different washer & it worked. Again very satisfied with etrailer and the whole experience! Yet to actually test it out with the trailer/bike rack but looks solid & clean, and just satisfied with the installation process.

Wow, wow, wow Everything fit perfectly, instruction video was the best. The hitch is stout and well built. It is square with slotted holes that allowed proper alignment. I also installed a trailer wiring harness. The hitch is completely concealed by the bumper cover. Only the receiver is visible.

I bought the hidden hitch for my Subaru Forester with the intention of having a family member install it, well this did not work out. My nearly legally blind husband decided he could tackle the job if I read the instructions, well this did not work out (I knew it wouldn't), just imagine him feeling and trying to install a hitch it was almost comical. In any case, I had to finish the installation myself everything lined up perfectly. I used a couple of jacks to raise the auto higher. I love this hitch and use it mainly for my bicycle. My point in telling this story is that if a 61-year-old woman can install it with just the online video and written instructions then anyone can.

I have purchased 3 of these hitches, 2010 & 2017 Forester & 2010 Crosstrek. The hitch is extremely sturdy, easy to install and looks great on our Subaru's! I love that the majority of the hitch is hidden under or behind the bumper, only the receiver shows. On the 2017 Forester we did have to cut part of the bumper but it's under the car and you can't see it. My only complaint with this hitch is that all 3 of them have a lot of surface rust after just a year. We live in VT so there is salt but for the price they should stand up to rust better. Otherwise, etrailer was great, the hitch was delivered quickly and packaged extremely well! I would definitely order from here again.

Bought a new vehicle (2018 Subaru Forester) and dealership recommended this hitch for the bike rack we already had in our possession. Dealer installed it and it worked like a champ on our vacation.

The hitch once installed is exactly what I wanted. I decided to installed it myself on 2016 Subaru Forester. The written instructions were adequate and the video made it easier. Two people are definitely required. The whole process took about 3 to 3-1/2 hours. The most difficult part was the removal and reinstallation of the mufflers and cutting the hole in the plastic fascia faring. The mufflers required a 14mm deep socket that I didn't have so I had to use a couple of 14mm box end wrenches which took a long time. Cutting an opening for the hitch in the facia was challenging because it was hard to judge where the center was located. Watch the video it really helped.

The package arrived damaged and missing several of the small attachment parts. A quick call to etrailer and replacement parts were shipped immediately. The installation on my 2015 Subaru Forester went smoothly and the hitch looks great. The installation video showed exactly how to install it on my vehicle.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


I've had the EcoHitch on my vehicle now for about a year (and about 30,000 miles - I commute 200 miles to work each day). My goal was to continue to use my Thule Vertex Bike Rack. It does work with that rack, perfectly. It seems pretty robust (I've been able to step on it when I had to clear some heavy snow off the roof of my car) and after a year, I haven't had to make any adjustments. I think it blends into the car nicely. And, it did not impact my gas mileage (~40 mpg highway). I will say - I found out almost instantly that this will change the way you drive the vehicle (at least in Colorado) because it takes very little to bottom out. I've left some grooves in friends' pavement after backing out of driveways and I have hit coming in to parking lots, going over speed bumps, and if there are any drainage ditches that have a steeper angle. Add the bike rack - I've hit that pretty good too (thankfully, not with the bike). To fix this issue, I decided earlier this year to lift the back end of the car by having the towing springs installed to lift the clearance by about 2". They get installed in May, so I'll update this to see if that resolves the bottoming out on the hitch. I didn't originally rate this product because honestly I was so angry at how poor the installation went. The instructions were difficult to follow (complicated by how I then found corrected instructions online) and I was sent the wrong bolts (<-- if that had been my only problem, no biggie. My friend Ace Hardware is just down the street). Something I felt should take maybe a day if I was super careful ended up taking 2 because the instruction mixup (I put the hitch on twice. Second time was able to install my bumper again too. Ha). Despite my installation woes - I think this is a great product for the car. I really hope the towing springs solve my bottoming out (I'm not looking to be an SUV - just be able to pull into my parking lot at work with the bike rack on the vehicle ha).


Comments
So Ive had the hitch on with the towing springs installed for about a year now and what a difference! I havent hit the hitch or bike rack since installing the towing springs, and I took it up into the mountains several times last summer. The hitch has been solid and sturdy, works perfectly with my bike rack and I think it blends in with the vehicle pretty well. I recommend, but also recommend thinking about the towing springs if you decide to install the hitch on this vehicle.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


In general I do like the hitch and would give it 5 starts. But there are a few problems: a) It's not 100% compatible with the 2019 Golf R b) The instructions that I found for trimming the bottom part of the bumper are not correct either. The compatibility issue is related to the mounting bolts. The 2019 Golf R in the US comes with blind spot monitors. The sensors are mounted at the rear corners of the car and use the impact bar bolts to mount. On the driver side that's not a problem, since they just get "sandwiched" under the mounting bolts. But on the passenger side they use bolts with threads on both sides and get mounted to the skinnier end (see pictures). Yet, the mounting HW kit for the hitch does not come with those screws - which basically means you are screwed. Technically you are not supposed to use the factory screws and you can't use the screws that come with the hitch. Regarding the trimming instructions - the cutout has to be at least 4" wide and also at least half an inch deeper than the drawings that were posted here. Also, when you install it don't use a ramp like I did, use stands so that the wheels are hanging off the car - that'll give you more room when dealing with the screws in the wheel well. I used a car jack to lift the car up a bit so that I can get in there...

After a year Im still very happy with the hitch. Im using it at least every other weekend with my K√ľat Sherpa bike rack. And I have not had any problems with the hitch.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


Fits perfectly, and was not too hard to install. I waited a little while to review this so I could test it out, make sure there was no long term issue. When installing, one of my bolts holding the tow bracket on broke loose of its weld,and required that I cut the bolt off,which was not too difficult, but be aware and be ready to do this as it is a possibility. Tows my new trailer very well. I found a 6" rise did the trick for me, though that may vary based on your trailer. The most I have towed is about 700lbs, though it feels capable of far exceeding that. I would be cautious of not exceeding the tongue weight though, as the car is a unibody design. The instructions are not the best, and you will need to widen one of the holes for the rectangular spacer to fit. There is a good [online] video out there that shows this very well


Comments
One year later, working great. Ive towed as much as 1400, and though I can feel it, the car pulls it no problem. Well worth the investment

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


The installation of the hitch on my '17 AllTrack was fairly straight forward with a couple of caveats. The Instructions did not address the parking sensors on the sides, or the harness plug behind the bumper cover. There was also considerably more trimming required than what was referenced in the instructions, both width, and depth. The instructions covered both their 1 1/4" and 2" receivers. Finally, there was no tool list in the instructions. Thankfully etrailer had a comprehensive video on how to do it that I was able to follow along with. Total time from start to finish, including jacking the rear of the car up and taking the wheels off, and polishing my exhaust tips, was just over two hours. The craftsmanship of the hitch is great and if the instructions were more clear I would have given it five stars.


Comments
I have used the hitch extensively for hauling mountain bikes all over kingdom come. It has performed flawlessly. I continue to be very happy with my purchase.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


Hitch is excellent quality, fit my 2010 Prius almost perfectly and installation was technically very easy. I'd recommend heeding the advice to mark where you're trimming the fairing before removal as it doesn't appear to be dead center once removed. Besides a few of the 10 year old brittle bumper clips breaking, installation was as easy as the two other hitches I've installed. It fits almost snug against the bottom of the bumper, my rack hasn't bottomed out on anything yet amazingly, ends up being fairly close to the rear axle.


Comments
Flawlessly. Ive left my rack installed the past year with zero issues. Totally worth the extra cost for the 2 rather than fooling around with adapters, completely solid.

This is great for my Subaru Impreza hatchback. I was worried because the car is so low, but the hitch doesn't stick down too far, it's great. I use it for my Thule Helium Platform 1 bike rack... The whole thing is just what I wanted. I even went over a big dip in the road and no scraping.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


etrailer's 2016 Prius V and 2017 Prius V videos were great. Followed the vid step-by-step. The paper instructions from Torklift were next to useless for me; tried reading but couldn't follow. Definitely suggest having a second hand on standby while you are installing under the car. etrailer's customer service was great. Kept me informed the entire way, even though they were short staffed and took longer than useless to ship out order; understandable during these times. Sit flush, clean, and neatly tucked underneath bumper. Glad I got this over the cheaper lower hanging ones 1.25" options. Problems: No where, either from Torklift or etrailer, did it specify that I needed TWO 19mm sockets. So when it was time to tighten the bracket bolts, I had to make due w/ one 19mm socket and clamps. It was a giant PIA. Added close to an hour to install. One major problem I discovered is inside of the hitch receiver is not coated properly, making it susceptible to rust. I installed it on Sunday. Monday night had a rainstorm come through (no rubber hitch cover yet since it's coming in the mail). Tues morning I discover rust inside the receiver already. I haven't even used this hitch yet. If I had left it uncovered for months it'd be understandable, but after one night of rain? I can and will obviously spray inside receiver w/ some rust enamel protection, but for a new xxx+$ hitch, I would expect Torklift to properly coat their hitch inside and out. I tried cleaning off the best I could but there's still rust where water sat overnight; you can see in the picture.

Very pleased with this purchase. The vehicle design (2018 Nissan Leaf SL) makes hitch installation tricky, but this hitch comes with everything needed to make it as easy as possible. It includes all the required hardware and a fish to help get the bolts through the frame. There are helpful videos out there to learn how to install it. Looks great (and mostly hidden) when installed. You have to make a small cutout in an underbody panel but that's not at all visible unless you're looking under the car.

Review from a similar Hidden Hitch in Trailer Hitch


I originally had the Curt class III hitch, but it hangs to low and the draw bar would scrape on some hills around my house. I bought this as a replacement because the ground clearance is almost 2 inches higher. The actual hitch fits tight to the body and seems well built. It didn't come with the installation hardware, but that was delivered about a week later. etrailer had to get hardware from eco hitch. The main issue with this product is rust. After three weeks of being installed, I had alot of surface rust. I reached out to eco hitch to find out why. They said there warranty doesn't cover rust and recommended steel wool and paint, but, I could send pictures for review. I never heard back. They have an option on their site for custom powder coating, but the the stock coating is terrible. This hitch is twice as much as the Curt and doesn't appear to be corrosion resistant at all. If you go with this hitch, prior to install, paint it. With no warranty to speak of, I now have to uninstall the hitch and paint the hitch, and reinstall. I have had 4 hitches from hidden hitch and Curt, but never seen anything rust the fast. Eco hitch should be embarrassed by the quality of the coating and lack of support.

First of all, it's no joke that they meant it will take 2+ hours for the installation. My took 3 hours to be exact, I am grateful for the video instruction. Because the paper version is in B/W, so it's hard to make out what the picture is pointed to. And it would be great the instruction can include an exact measurement of where to cut on the bumper, and not just find a mid point to mark. But all in all, it was a great buy and everything fits like a glove and it is solid like a rock. Have not had time to test the hitch with load yet, but I'm pretty sure it will handle the job with ease.
