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. Technical Support

At we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers.

We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (35 Customer Reviews)

This custom-fit trailer hitch with a hidden cross tube installs behind your vehicle's rear bumper, leaving only the receiver visible beneath it. Aluminum and steel alloy construction is durable and eco-friendly. Powder coat finish resists rust.

2004 Audi S4

Overall very happy with my purchase. Receiver is very high quality and the fit is very good. A few things I would note:
A. Would highly recommend having an impact for getting the crash bar off. I was able to remove it with a socket/breaker bar, but it was extremely difficult.
B. If you ever plan on towing, it is significantly easier to add the trailer wiring while the bumper is off.
C. You will need to trim the bumper to clear the receiver. I didn’t see that called out in the description (it is called for in the instructions), but you will have to cut a small section out of the underside of the bumper.

Again, very good product and am very satisfied!


Great quality, hidden stock look. Installation was pretty easy with two people. I was able to skip jacking the car up and not having to drop the exhaust having the help of another person and positioning it in at just the right angle. There's a bottom lip on the rear that has to be cut and you have to cut past that into the actual bumper a little. Highly recommend.


This was easy to install and provides a very solid hitch mount. Just take off the bumper, remove some bolts, mount the hitch and replace the bumper. Seemless! I like that it’s nearly invisible. I use it to hold bikes for a bike rack, but I’m sure I could haul a small trailer with it as well.


It was easy to find right part, easy to order, and the hitch receiver was delivered very fast. I’m reasonably handy with tools. It took me a little over 2 hours to install and I was not trying to race the clock. In addition to common tools (flat & phillips head screwdrivers, and 8, 10, & 17 mm sockets), i also needed a breaker bar to loosen one of the nuts on the car’s “impact bar” (metal bumper). You might save some time if you skip adding the little piece of trim where you cut the notch in the plastic bumper. It took me a while to get it to fit right and after reinstalling the bumper it is barely visible. If you skip the trim, be sure to cut the notch as clean as possible. A Dremel worked pretty well for me.

2017 Mazda 3

The hitch fit perfectly as described. The video is extremely helpful for installation. Thank you!

2015 Mazda 3

Installation was a breeze for this hitch. Followed the provided instructions along with the watching the company's video and was done in about an hour and a half. Everything seems sturdy and solid so can't wait to see how it works in the future.

2017 Mazda 3

Very pleased with the etrailer hitch for my Mazda 3. It fits up inside the rear bumper shroud, only part that shows is the receiver.
Works well with the Mazda low profile design.
I’m not an auto mechanic and have limited tools but i can figure things out and not afraid to bust a knuckle. I installed the etrailer start to finish in 1 hour (watched video a couple of times and followed directions step by step).


Great hitch! Looks stock with the car and fits heftier equipment like my Kuat bike rack. Easy to install as long as you follow the instructions and have a little time/patience.

Etrailer is also awesome! Great service and they shipped my order extremely fast. This is my 2nd hitch from them and definitely recommend/will buy from them again!


This hitch looks extremely strong and well finished. Probably overkill For the bike rack I will be using it for. Installation was not as bad as expected. The hardest part to me was pulling the tail lights loose from retaining clips. Finished product looks inconspicuous and seems to have an upward tilt.


Great hitch. Easy installation, strong, great addition to my car.


Excellent tow hitch. Arrived quickly. Installing today on Mazda3, then bike rack. Can’t wait for camping trip with no bikes inside the car. :)

2018 Mazda 3

This concealed hitch is great. Well built, looks great, and Install went well. Plan for 2.5-3 hours if you install yourself. Plastic bumper modification will vary to allow for the 2” receiver. Thank you!


Fit my car perfectly. Very impressed with the responsiveness and helpfulness of customer service!

2015 Mazda 3

The receiver fit perfectly and customer service was amazing!


Fits well. Tube is well centered on vehicle. Took 2 of us about 1:20 to install, including cutting down the bumper.


Everything can in as described. Delivered in a timely fashion and boxed perfectly.


Perfect. Use it frequently. Great instr uctions.


Cost effective and extremely simple installation process, fitted perfectly for my vehicle. Slight issue with the cover plate for the rear bumper being pushed out from it's intended housing, but the end result is that the hitch is better hidden. Highly recommend for Mazda 3 Hatch owners, especially if you're hoping for just a little more room on a long trip- Hitch baskets work with this hitch quite well.


Easy installation on a 2015 Mazda 3 Hatchback. It has good ground clearance.

2017 Mazda 3

I am impressed. The install went as smooth as I'd assume it would. Took me about 1 hour as I'm more mechanically inclined. Very happy. Purchased to take my Kuat 4 bike rack. There was minimal sag with 210lbs.


My Customer Service person Dena was awesome helping me pick just the right hitch for my car. Etrailer has a great selection. My new hitch is perfect, so unobtrusive on my Mazda 3. Already used with friends and family and a new five bike rack for a Fat Tire Festival!


This was an easy project. It took my friend and I just under 2 hours to I stall and it looks great!!


Is working very well, no problems whatsoever. I have been using it for carrying a bike rack around, the only problem I have was the difficulty of the install. I had to pay a professional to do it for me.


Worth the money, great product and installation was straight forward not too difficult.


This item is everything I thought it would be. I love this hidden hitch. great quality and very easy to install.

  • Is the EcoHitch a Fit for a 2018 Mazda 3 Hatchback
    Yes, the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7305 is a fit for a 2018 Mazda 3 Hatchback. It also has the larger 2" receiver tube opening so you'll have a much greater selection of hitch mounted accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers to choose from.

  • Will the EcoHitch or Draw-Tite Hitch for a 2017 Mazda 3 Hatchback Work With Appearance/Aero Package
    There are two trailer hitch options for a 2017 Mazda 3 Hatchback, the Draw-Tite Sport Frame Receiver Hitch part # 24914 and EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7305. If you have the appearance/aero package then the Draw-Tite will be your best option since it sits below the bumper but the EcoHitch option will work as well there would just be more trimming of the rear bumper fascia involved. That said, the EcoHitch option has the 2" receiver tube opening which is best for towing...

  • Tongue Weight Capacity of EcoHitch 306-X7305
    The tongue weight capacity of the EcoHitch # 306-X7305 for a 2015 Mazda 3 is indeed 300 lbs. After we wrote the original product description, EcoHitch did further weight capacity testing on the # 306-X7305 hitch and found that it had a higher tongue weight capacity than originally stated. The hitch will work great with your Mazda 3 and your 2 inch bike rack.

  • Will A Hitch Void the Warranty Of My 2018 Mazda 3 Grand Touring and Which Hitch is Recommended
    The act of installing a hitch on the 2018 Mazda 3 Grand Touring will not void the warranty because you are covered under the Magnuson–Moss warranty act which prohibits manufacturers from voiding a warranty for adding aftermarket parts unless that after market part caused damage the vehicle. With that said, if Mazda does not recommend towing anything with the Mazda 3 Grand Touring (more than likely they mention it in the owners manual) if towing damages the transmission or any other mechanical...

  • Parts Needed to Tow Motorcycle Trailer with 2016 Mazda 3
    Motorcycle carriers are seemingly really convenient but the problem with them is that they require the vehicle to have a higher towing capacities due to the weight of the motorcycle and carriers. Typically it has to be a truck or a larger SUV to have the needed capacity. So with that in mind only option for you with your 2016 Mazda 3 will be to tow a small trailer. For that the EcoHitch part # 306-X7305 is a confirmed fit and would be a great choice with plenty of towing capacity. Then...

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch C11377 Work For Carrying Bike Rack On 2018 Mazda 3 Hatchback?
    Yes the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11377 you were looking at for your 2018 Mazda 3 will work just fine carrying a bike rack, as long as the weight of the rack and your bikes combined do not exceed the 200lb tongue weight rating of the hitch. Since this hitch is a Class I hitch you will need to make sure that your bike rack is rated for a Class I hitch, as not all 1-1/4" receiver bike racks are. Class I hitches all have a tab in them that makes it so certain accessories will not fit...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit For 2020 Mazda 3 Hatchback
    There is a trailer hitch receiver fit for your 2020 Mazda 3 hatchback, but I verified with EcoHitch that there is not an offering from them. In fact, there's just one hitch that fits your '20 Mazda 3 hatchback, from Curt: - Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C98BR The # C98BR is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver, and while I know it isn't the exact hitch you wanted, I still wanted to offer it as an alternative for you.

  • Hitch for 2016 Mazda 3 Hatchback to Carry 3 Bikes
    I have a solution for carrying 3 bikes with your 2016 Mazda 3 hatch back but the Class I hitch can't handle carrying more than 2 bikes due to the added weight and leverage of the third bike that stick out further. You'd instead need a 2 inch hitch like the EcoHitch part # 306-X7305 which would easily handle a three bike rack like the Swagman Trailhead part # S63365.

  • Can Curt Class I Hitch with 2 Inch Adapter Hold a Honda Grom on 2015 Mazda 3
    You are correct, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11377 has a maximum gross tongue weight of 200 lbs. Since you are already at 230 lbs this will not work for your needs. In addition to this, you were wanting to use a 1-1/4" to 2" adapter like the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter # HTAD. Using an adapter like this reduces capacity by 50 percent, leaving the hitch with a 100 lbs tongue weight capacity. In order to be able to carry your Honda Grom with your 2015 Mazda 3 I recommend...

    The EcoHitch Class II hitches for your 2016 Mazda 3, part # 306-X7305 for a hatchback or part # 306-X7303 for a sedan, will technically fit with the Ultra-Fab Dirt Bike Carrier for 2" Hitches # UF48-979033 and the weight of the carrier plus your bike will be under the 300 lb tongue weight rating, but this carrier is also rated for a Class III hitch so it isn't advisable.

    Both the Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Platform Rack # KU74FR and the Saris SuperClamp EX # SA4025F referenced in your question are really nice 2-bike platform style racks. Either of these will work great with a trailer hitch on your 2016 Mazda 3 and 2016 Honda CR-V. The Saris Freedom does feature a slightly larger weight capacity and includes both a hitch lock and cable lock to secure your bikes and carrier, however for your particular vehicles I recommend the Kuat Transfer.

    I would be happy to help you. To add a hitch, capable of towing a 700 lbs tear camper, to your 2015 Mazda 3 Hatchback you will want the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch item # 306-X7305. This hitch is custom fit for the hatchback model and bolts in behind the rear bumper for a clean install. This will be a great hitch for towing as it has a 2" receiver which will give you the highest capacity available.

    The EcoHitch part # 306-X7305 for your 2014 Mazda 3 hatchback is a really great choice for a trailer hitch and would also work really well with the Kuat Transfer part # KU74FR that you mentioned as well. This hitch would allow you enough clearance for the bike rack to fit folded up as well. Platform racks are much easier to load and unload which is why most people prefer them. Also most are more expensive and heavier than the Transfer so it's a really great value as well. I attached a...

  • E-Bikes, A Trunk Rack, And Their Fit On My 2014 Mazda 3
    If your e-bikes are on the very low end of that weight range, as in right at 40 lbs, there may be a trunk rack that is able to carry your e-bikes. It is also recommended that e-bikes be transported on your vehicle without the battery installed on the bike. That will also save you some weight. Our trunk bike racks are going to max out at 35 lbs a bike. If that weight is enough, my trunk bike rack recommendation is the Saris Bones EX 2 Bike Rack - Adjustable Arms - Trunk Mount, part # SAR83FR....

The 350lb minimum weight rating is required when using the bike rack behind a 5th wheel camper. This is required on a 5th wheel as they bounce more than other RV's causing a more violent ride behind a 5th wheel than you will experience behind your Mazda 3.

If you can get by with a 3-bike capacity then the rack I recommend is the Thule OutWay 3, part # TH56BV. This USA-made carrier is among the best trunk racks made. It features molded nylon construction that is strong yet lightweight; built-in locks are included for the rack itself...
