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.

I’m giving 4 stars because there was a alarming/annoying banging noise coming from the muffler striking the hitch when I was going up mountain roads. I didn’t know what the heck was happening when it first occurred. Gravity would cause the muffler to swing toward the back of the car, thus striking the frame of the hitch. See picture below. The help team at etrailer, sorry to say, were not very helpful. They gave me a very technical answer that I needed more assistance to understand. My follow-up questions were ignored. (This was unusual for them because in the past they had been extremely helpful.) So I contacted the EcoHitch help support and they provided more assistance with answers I could understand. What I ended up doing was my own fix, an easy one. I glued a small piece of rubber onto the frame of the hitch where the muffler was making contact. The contact mind you is not constant, (It only happens on steep mountain climbs) and it was the outside edge of the muffler making contact. Thus no concern with a hot muffler melting the rubber. Once I did this, the banging sound was completely negated. Regarding the hitch, it is sturdy and well made. Due to tolerances on various vehicles for muffler placement, the problem that I had with the muffler striking the hitch is not common. But given this is a possible problem, during installation you may need to bend the muffler bracket a 1/4 inch toward the front of the car to accommodate any muffler travel to prevent it from striking the hitch. Be sure to test this before you complete the job and or alert your tech to this possible problem. Otherwise the EcoHitch is a very good hitch and I recommend it with the reservations mentioned above.


Comments
We do have an FAQ on how to move the exhaust to help correct the noise from the muffler hitting the hitch.

I am happy with the quality of the trailer hitch but I am missing an important piece and I am unable to install my trailer hitch to my car. I sent out an email (not quite sure if it really sent out though) about it but I have not heard anything back about it. I hope maybe they will get back to me soon or hopefully work out this problem with a phone call.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

Install went well on my 2013 Honda Fit Sport, and I've been driving around with it on for at least a year now. I installed this so I could mount a bike rack large enough for my electric bike. Great product, thanks!

This hitch is amazing. Works perfectly on Honda fit 2013. Been using it to move bikes and e-bikes without an issue. Only 200 lb weight capacity so great for bikes but, nothing heavier. Perfect for my needs. 1yr later, it works without issue.

Extremely fast shipping. I ordered Friday after 5 pm received tracking info by 10 pm order arrived from across the country Monday midday. Completely over built and attaches to the same points on the car that the factory recovery hook attaches. It’s not just bolted to some random holes on the bottom of the car. Installing was easy with basic tools. I ordered from etrailer.com because of their [online] videos. I have a small wheel less trailer that will be used for vacation luggage, ice chest for crawfish/seafood, and gas cans for the generator during hurricane season. I also ordered the wire kit and the flappy rubber cap. All three items were top quality for a fair price.

This hitch is the only way to add a 2" receiver to a small vehicle like the Honda Fit. With this I am able to use the same bike rack that I do on my family's SUV without any adaptors.

This item came with a part missing but after a bit of a wait I did receive the missing piece and the hitch works well. Thanks




by:

I love my new hitch..it is very sturdy, and is beautifully designed to be "hidden", only exposing the 2" opening. It worked perfectly with my Hollywood rack, and easily supports two e-bikes. Bikes stay sturdy when driving. Best of all the rack locks to your car keeping the bikes safe when you link your bike lock through the opening in the hitch. The only negative is it is not easy to install, as the car bumper has to be removed. We did it, but it takes time. The directions are very good. Also, I remove it from my car when not in use as it does stick out quite far in back.

  • How Much Trimming Is Needed for EcoHitch on 2013 Honda Fit
    The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7286 is an excellent option for a 2013 Honda Fit, it's the only one with a 2" receiver tube opening in fact. In regards to trimming, this will be very minor. I have attached a photo that lets you know exactly how much is needed. I will say that the trim they provide to cover the cut marks makes for a very clean look. I personally love the fit and finish of EcoHitches.

  • Does EcoHitch for 2011 Honda Fit Have Capacity for Scooter Carrier
    The EcoHitch part # 306-X7286 that fits your 2011 Honda Fit has a 300 lb tongue weight capacity so as long as the weight of your carrier and scooter is less than that it would work great. You also need to verify the tongue weight capacity of your vehicle and be sure not to exceed that either.

  • Best Hitch and Bike Rack for 2013 Honda Fit
    To carry three bikes on your 2013 Honda Fit, you need a special Class III hitch receiver like the EcoHitch # 306-X7286. This one is a little bit pricier and harder to install, but it allows you to carry more bikes and has a 2" hitch receiver. Otherwise, you can get a Class I Hitch by Draw-Tite # 24826. Any Class I hitch can only carry up to two bikes and has a 1-1/4" hitch receiver. Still a great hitch and it's a lot easier to install, but that's something you have to consider. For a bike...

  • Recommended Hitch w/ a 2" Receiver for a 2010 Honda Fit
    The only option for a 2" hitch on your 2010 Honda Fit is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver item # 306-X7286 you were looking at. This hitch only has a 200 lbs tongue weight capacity. So long as your bike rack and heavy e-bikes weigh below 200 lbs this hitch will be the only option for your vehicle. Ecohitch does not rate the class on this hitch so you will want to refer to your vehicles owner's manual to verify if your Fit has a 200 lbs tongue weight capacity. If you are looking...

  • Adding Security to Carry Long Paddle Board on Honda Fit
    That does look pretty iffy in regards to traveling at high speeds on the interstate and there is one thing you can do that I recommend, and that's add a trailer hitch and load extender. You did not mention what year your Honda Fit was but since load extenders require a 2 inch hitch, if your Honda Fit is a model year 2009 to 2014 you need the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7286 or if you have a 2015 to 2017 Honda Fit you will need the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver...

  • Hitch Bike Rack For 2 Heavy Bikes And 2 Lighter Bikes For Hitch With 200 lb Max Tongue Weight
    The Yakima Full Swing # Y02465 will only have 50 lbs per bike so that isn't an option for you. I do have a 4 bike rack that will work with your 2" hitch # 306-X7286 on your 2010 Honda Fit, but you won't be able to use a swing away system since your tongue weight maxes out at 200lbs. The Saris SuperClamp # SA4026F would work for you. It will tilt away and has a 60 lb capacity for your heavier bikes. Make sure to put the heavy bikes closest to your vehicle and the outer cradles will be for...

  • Four bike Rack With An EcoHitch 306-X7286 For 2012 Honda Fit
    I will start with the question about the maximum tongue weight. Per Torklift, the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2", part # 306-X7286, has a maximum tongue weight of 300lbs. Now whether your 2012 Honda Fit can handle a 4 bike platform rack depends on the weight of the rack, the weight of the bikes your are transporting, and if their total weight is less than the maximum tongue weight of your hitch receiver. My recommendation will give you the most flexibility with...

  • Hitch for Carrying a Bike on my 2013 Honda Fit and Other Options
    I have some good solutions for you! I've scoured the owners manual and found nothing about not installing a hitch. They do indicate that your vehicle should not be used for trailer towing though. With that said. For carrying up to two bikes on a bike rack the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11064 you looked at is a great choice. It weighs in at about 23 lbs. You could pair this with the Curt 2 Bike Rack part # C18029 that weighs in just over 30 lbs and the required Curt Stabilization...
