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.

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 Küat Sherpa bike rack. And I have not had any problems with the hitch.

Product was not welded straight, II had to use some force to make it square with the car, see details.

Once I was able to adjust the shape of the hitch square. it fit excellent and tested with a bicycle rack.

I originally went with this product because it sits higher than the rest of the alternatives on the market, and the stealth mounting is a win for sport car appearance.


Comments
Hitch is sitting solid,I use it for my MTB weekends only. Hitch is showing some signs of rust in the corners and angles, I guess it is unavoidable in NY weather. Im getting compliments on the way this hitch looks and letting people know I got if from you guys. thanks

Hitch seems like it is decently made and fits well with only some minor trimming on the bottom of the diffuser. The instructions are pretty crappy and if you have park assist then you’ll have to re-use some of the factory hardware which is borderline too short for 100% confidence as far as strength goes. It seems like with just a little effort on improving the install instructions with pictures or schematics that are actually legible and some updated hardware then this hitch would be an A+




by:

The ecoHitch hidden trailer hitch installed flawlessly with no issues on my 2015 Golf R. The install took less then 2 hours with my mechanic and the instructions made everything go through super smooth. I would advise cutting the notch for the bumper a little smaller then the instructions ask for as it makes the bumper more flush to the hitch.
Very pleased with the results and the look. Very flush.




by:

My son installed the hitch in just a couple hours. Pretty straight forward on installation.
I am so happy with the look of the hitch (hidden) on my golf. I have used it and it is game changer when it comes to hauling my bike.
Thank you for making a great product.

2019 Volkswagen Golf

The product is solid, functional and looks great.
The directions were a little difficult to follow and in some cases incorrect. I had to find a video on etrailer, and one on youtube to verify the odd wording in the directions.
listed issues with directions:
* I had to reuse two OE bolts as the ones that came weren't compatible with my 2019 sensor attachment on the rear passenger side (2 ouside bolts).
* the hanger bolts were confusing, the directions make it seem the mounting bolts are the temporary hanging bolts. look closely and the images on the online directions and use logic.
* the valence needed a 4 1/4" cutout to allow for the receiver to pass through instead of the recommend 3 1/4" cut out
* the directions didn't mention anything about the foam on the bumper. It fits back on.

The result was really nice though. It's almost completely hidden and looks pretty much stock. I'm very impressed overall. The job wasn't hard, but very time consuming ~3Hrs of slow careful work so as not to break anything.

Hope this was helpful

My second order and these guys are Great!!! Having installed next week and hope all is well!

2019 Volkswagen Golf

Overall a good product. Cool they offer a 2 inch hitch on a vw golf/gti. Not made from aluminum as stated in the description. Heavy steel.

Install note: this does fit a 2019 Golf/ non GTI but not without major trimming of the skirt. The instructions call for a two inch notch to clear the receiver, but on the 2019 golf the skirt juts in two inches higher than a GTI or Golf R. I had to trim a two foot section off the skirt of the bumper basically exposing the entire draw bar in the process. It still looks fine, is higher than other hitches, but it is definitely not hidden anymore. Still like it due to the bigger receiver opening. Much better for using with a bike rack on bumpy dirt roads.




by:

The hitch was easy to install and the directions and video were exact in what needed to be done. Took about 2 hrs to install. Looks great and like it was made to be part of the car. We will use it for a bike rack. Impressive and the quality of the hitch was excellent.

Fits perfectly on my mk7 golf r (2016). Instructions were perfect and everything fit great. The edging for the piece of the cut bumper was a nice touch.

Fits perfect on my 2016 Golf R! Using it for a hitch mount bike rack and it is solid as a rock.




by:
2019 Volkswagen Golf

Easy install but does not fit under the bumper cover seamlessly, bulges the plastic “diffuser” in 2 high spots(2019 golf). Other than that it’s solid.

Install went pretty good and the fitment is also nice. In my opinion it was definitely worth the money.

  • Is Fascia Trimming Required for Trailer Hitch Install on a 2019 Volkswagen Golf R
    Yes, all of the trailer hitches for your 2019 Volkswagen Golf R require some fascia trimming for the installation. Out of the available options I recommend going with the EcoHitch # 306-X7332 because it is he only option for you to use a 2" receiver. The larger receiver means you have the opportunity to carry a wider variety of accessories than you would if you had a 1-1/4" receiver. I have attached a link to the installation instructions for you to check out.

  • Is There Trimming Required to Install Trailer Hitch on a 2019 Volkswagen Golf R
    The hitches that fit your 2019 Volkswagen Golf R like the EcoHitch # 306-X7332 all require some fascia trimming. This EcoHitch is the way to go though as it's only option that has a 2 inch opening which more accessories are made for and is in general is stronger. I attached a picture that shows the trimming required as well.

You want to use the hardware the hitch came with or you risk voiding your warranty on it and compromising the capacity of the hitch itself. You also have the option of making your own bracket that would fit behind one of the provided fasteners...

    The EcoHitch # 306-X7309 receiver hitch you mentioned is a fit for the 2017 VW Golf GTI, as long as it's not an R model, as confirmed by EcoHitch. If your vehicle is an R model, you'd want to use # 306-X7332. The hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 300 lbs, so you'll want to ensure the weight of your bike rack plus the bikes carried upon it is less than 300 lbs.

Since the cutouts are relatively the same I highly recommend going with the EcoHitch # 306-X7332 because it gives you a 2" receiver over the 1-1/4" receiver size for the other 2 hitches. The larger receiver size means that you can use more accessories for your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R model. Just be sure not to exceed the weight capacity of your Volkswagen. If...

For the Draw-Tite # 24975, the notch would be a bit smaller at 3-1/2 inches by 2-1/2 inches, also on the underside of the fascia. For all three hitches, the notch isn't noticeable from the rear, only if you're looking up at the underside of the bumper. If I had to personally choose between the 3, I'd go with the EcoHitch...

Ecohitch also makes a hitch with 1 1/4" reciever tube # 306-X7333 The Draw-tite # 24975 is a class I, so it has a 1 1/4" receiver tube opening.
