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.

The hitch was perfect and a super easy install. Probably two hours at most from start to finish. Trickiest part is the plastic clips for the bumper cover, everything else was just a few screws and bolts. Once installed it is totally concealed except the receiver and doesn't impact ground clearance at all.

The i3 doesn't have any options for roof racks, so this provides several options. I don't plan to tow any heavy items, but will use this for yard trailer and hitch mounted rack.


Comments
A year on and the hitch has been great. I use it for lightweight utility trailer with standard receiver hitches. One caveat, the hitch itself is low to the ground and does scrape very occasionally.

I installed this ecohitch on my 2018 bmw i3s with REX. It fit really well. There is couple of things on my 2018 different from the installation pdf (2014 model), but I can easily find what to do to remove my bumper, the rear door lock antenna need to be relocated because on 2018 it was in interferance. Be really carefull when you pry on the clips on the bumper ends they broke easily, go from inisde the fender to pry on those end clips.
The unther braket (triangle one) didn't fit, I needed to correct the angle to have it fit (10 min more job). But overall pretty happy with the results. I carry a 3 bike rack and the hitch hold well. Bike rack is 52 pounds, with 28 pounds each bike.
It also fit the REX model but the heat generated be the exhaust can burn the paint on the triangle and rust can appear (not in my case after several rex running hours)

Easy install. It took about 3 hours with breaks. I used tin snips and a hacksaw to cut the bumper and wire harness holder and it worked well. Can’t wait to try it out with my bike rack.

It’s neat and sturdy. However some rusty discolouration appeared over some edges and corner after a few rainy days. Just wonder if this is normal and safety level is not affected. Would like to know if anything I can do to prevent it from deterioration


Comments
It should not be rusting which makes me think there was a scratch or nick in the paint that is causing the rust. I would clean the hitch off and spray black anti-corrosive paint like Rustoleum on the spots that are showing rust or any other scratches you see. This will stop premature deterioration. Using lubrication inside the hitch receiver with your accessories will also help the life. Here is more info in this help article:

Shipping box does not secure the hitch. It was bouncing around apparently. Dug into bag of parts crimping the trim. Otherwise easy install. Left end of hitch mount was tighter than right. Bolted the right side and hammered the left into position. Is the brace bar supposed to be squared to the hitch? Painted the brace bolts black for a low vis appearance. Very stout parts.



by:

Great product. Instructions were pretty good. There are some good install videos online that are very helpful.
The ‘C’ clamps that fit over the OEM impact rail are a little tight, but a few taps with a rubber mallet put it into position easily.
I remember thinking ‘Do I really need to relocate the antennae? seems to be out of the way.’ Yes, yes you do!

I love everything about this hitch, but mostly I am excited about being able to transport bikes in my i3. The told necessary were minimal (sockets, torque wrench, Dremel) and the instructions were clear. The images are in black and white, and take a bit to figure out what it is they are showing, but they are thorough. I was able to do the whole thing by myself, although an additional person would have made it way faster. Now I'm off to get a hitch bike rack. Thl

Hi! Had it installed but have not used it yet, but I believe it will help me out alot later.
Thanks for the email.

Installation is straight forward. Easily accomplished by someone with basic mechanical skills. The hitch is the best solution for someone who is into cycling and wants to mount a bike rack. Highly recommend.

  • Trailer Hitch for 2018 BMX i3 and 1-1/4 inch Hitch Adapter
    For your 2018 BMW i3 we only have the 2 inch hitch part # 306-X7277 that you referenced. Based on how long your vehicle has been available I would not anticipate a 1-1/4 inch hitch being released for it. The 2 inch hitch is widely preferred due to it's higher weight capacities and more accessories being made for it. To convert this to a 1-1/4 inch hitch you could use the part # HT02.

  • Trailer Hitch for 2017 BMW i3

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver For Carrying 2 E-Bikes On a 2014-2020 BMW i3
    The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7277 is currently the only custom fit receiver we have that is confirmed to fit the 2014-2020 BMW i3. The receiver is rated for up to 200lbs of tongue weight for carrying your e-bikes. Be sure to verify with BMW if the amount of tongue weight allowed on your particular i3 is any lower. I recommend using the Thule EasyFold XT Bike Rack # TH903202 to carry your e-bikes. The rack itself only weighs 45lbs and it is capable of carrying 2 bikes...

  • Tools Required to Install EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2018 BMW i3
    The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7277 does rate a 10 out of 10 on our difficulty rating as it is a very in depth installation. It requires removal of the rear bumper cover and trimming of bumper cover, underbody panel and wire harness holder to properly install the receiver. There are several different tools such as a hack saw, coping saw, reciprocating saw, and a jig saw that would allow you to accomplish the cutting required. You will also need a basic set of hand tools...

  • Trailer Wiring and Hitch for 2018 BMW i3
    For your 2018 BMW i3 that we have the EcoHitch part # 306-X7277 as a confirmed fit for you'd need to use universal trailer wiring like the # 119250KIT since we do not have any custom fit options at this time. This kit uses sensors instead of wire splices though so there wouldn't be any wires cut on your vehicle.

Though it will depend on how many bikes you will be carrying and what style they will be, here are a few of the ones I recommend. For a hanging style rack, I suggest the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR.
