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.

No issues - still going strong. My rack stays attached to the hitch all summer long.

Excellent product. Got it installed on a 2017 Golf R without discarding OEM foam and no issues with the blind spot monitors either. Jigsaw made easy work of notching out the valance, and the included notch trim turns even an imperfect cut into a perfect finish. Only complaint is that the receiver wasn't welded perfectly square to the crossbar. I measured it to be exactly 1 degree off, and you'd be surprised how plainly noticeable that is when your accessory is folded up.

Works well on a 2019 VW R, I use this for attaching my bike rack to the vehicle only and had no interest in towing. During the installation the instructions suggest removing the foam insert. I contacted the manufacture and discussed based on the discussion I decided to keep the insert installed. I experienced no issues with the installation or use of.

Installed by me in about 3 hours, very high quality product.

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2015 Volkswagen Golf R
    We currently only have one trailer hitch receiver option available for a 2015 Volkswagen Golf R which is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7333 for 1-1/4" or part # 306-X7332 for 2". The best thing about the EcoHitch is that it 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. If you can tell me what you will be using the hitch for I would be glad to offer...

  • How Much Does Rear Bumper Fascia Need to Be Notched to Install Hitch on 2019 Volkswagen Golf R
    To install the EcoHitch # 306-X7333 or # 306-X7332 on a 2019 VW Golf R, a notch measuring 3 x 3-1/4 inches would need to be made in the underside of the bumper fascia. For both 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 two, I'd go with the EcoHitch # 306-X7332 with the 2 inch receiver because the 2 inch receiver size is more common, so there will be more hitch mounted accessories...

  • Which EcoHitch for 2019 Volkswagen Golf R Model
    The EchoHitch part # 306-X7332 and the # 306-X7333 are very similar but have two major differences. The # 306-X7333 has the 1-1/4" reciever and the # 306-X7332 has the more desirable 2" receiver opening and 100 pounds more of tongue weight. I would definitely go with the 306-X7332 since it gives you a wider variety of accessories to choose from.

  • Cutout Dimensions for Draw-Tite and EcoHitch Trailer Hitches on a 2018 Volkswagen Golf R
    The cutout of the the EcoHitch # 306-X7333 and # 306-X7332 it is 3-1/4" x 3". Since the cutouts are 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 you let me know what you plan on using the trailer hitch for,...

  • What is the Difference Between the EcoHitch Hitches for 2019 VW Golf R Model
    The primary difference between the EcoHitch # 306-X7332 and EcoHitch # 306-X7333 is that the EcoHitch # 306-X7333 only has a 1-1/4" receiver, where the EcoHitch # 306-X7332 has a 2" receiver. When available, I generally find it more beneficial for customers to go with a 2" hitch when they are available for their vehicle and within their price range. Both of these hitches mount behind the bumper and provide a concealed cross tube design that will leave only the receiver visible, so the installation...

    The correct EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack is part # 306-X7315. It doesn't look like we have had a chance to install said hitch yet so we don't have any measurements to provide and the manufacturer does not produce these either as it can be different for every vehicle depending on options, tire size, load, etc. That said, I have attached a photo for you which shows the location of the receiver and as you can see, it sits right inside the rear...

  • Trailer Hitch That Fits 2016 VW Golf R
    There is a hitch that is a fit for your 2016 VW Golf R, but not the Curt model you referenced. Instead, you need the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7333, which is a Class II hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver and a bolt-on installation so no drilling in your VW's frame is going to be needed. This hitch has a hidden cross tube so only the receiver will be visible, ensuring a clean look for your Golf R.

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 2018 Volkswagen Golf Type R
    For the 2018 Volkswagen Golf Type R we have two options that will work great. We have the EcoHitch part # 306-X7333 which is a 1-1/4 inch hitch or we have the # 306-X7332 which is a 2 inch hitch. 2 inch hitches are stronger by design and also have more accessories made to fit them so it's the size I recommend.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2016 Volkswagen Golf R
    The # 306-X7309 only fits the GTI models of the 2016 VW Golf. The equivalent hitch for your Golf R is the # 306-X7333, but this only has a 1-1/4" receiver. Unfortunately, there is not a hitch available with a 2" receiver for the R. Unless you are going to use an accessory that requires a Class II hitch, the Class I hitch from Curt # C11564 will save you some money.

  • Do Trailer Hitch Receivers for the 2016 Volkswagen Golf R Require Trimming
    We have two hitches from EcoHitch and one from Curt that fit your 2016. From EcoHitch one is a 2 inch, part # 306-X7332, and the other is a 1-1/4 inch, part # 306-X7333. I recommend the 2 inch because it's compatible with more accessories than the smaller hitch is. Both of them do require trimming to the fascia. The Curt is part # C11564 and it is also a Class I 1-1/4 hitch and also requires trimming.

  • Hidden Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Volkswagen Golf
    We do have hidden hitches for an R model or GTI model of your 2019 Volkswagen Golf, but if you don't have either there is only one trailer hitch available and it doesn't have the hidden crosstube. For an R model I recommend the EcoHitch # 306-X7333 which only has the receiver visible, for a GTI I recommend the EcoHitch # 306-X7375 because you can physically remove the receiver portion of the trailer hitch so that passerbys don't even know you have a trailer hitch installed, and then the...

  • Trailer Hitch Ground Clearance for 2016 VW Golf GTI

The EcoHitch features 13 inches of ground clearance measured from the bottom of the receiver to the ground. I don't have an exact measurement for the Curt hitch, but the Curt seems to sit a bit lower from the frame. Unless you plan on using this hitch with 1-1/4 hitch accessories exclusively, I recommend going with the EcoHitch # 306-X7309 instead as a 2-inch receiver...

  • Difference Between The Draw-Tite and the EcoHitch Hitches for a 2019 Volkswagen Golf R
    The main difference between the EcoHitch Class 2 Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7333 and the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7332 is the receiver tube size. The EcoHitch # 306-X7332 has a 2" receiver tube and an extra 100 pounds of tongue weight compared to the of 1 1/4" on the #306-X7333. The 2" receivers have the widest variety of accessories, that's why I would highly recommend the EcoHitch # 306-X7332. The extra 100 pounds of tongue weight is an added bonus. Both hitches...

  • Stealth Trailer Hitch Vs EcoHitch Trailer Hitches for 2019 VW Golf R
    The best hitch for your 2019 Volkswagen Golf R is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7332 because it is the only hitch currently with a 2" receiver tube and a better price than the Stealth. The # 306-X7332 has a 300-lb tongue weight capacity and a 2000-lb towing capacity. The big benefit to having a 2" receiver is the wide variety of accessories, like bike racks and cargo carriers. Ecohitch also makes a hitch with 1-1/4" receiver tube # 306-X7333. The # 306-X7333 has...

  • EcoHitch vs Curt Trailer Hitch Comparison for 2016 VW Golf
    Both the EcoHitch and Curt trailer hitches fit your 2016 Volkswagen Golf and both feature similar specs. Both the Curt # C11564 and the EcoHitch # 306-X7333 feature a design that conceals the crossbar beneath the rear fascia. The EcoHitch is slightly more concealed due to the receiver being attached more closely to the crossbar than it is on the Curt hitch. They are otherwise nearly identical in terms of fit, function, and installation. I recommend the Curt hitch as it is durable and has...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Volkswagen Golf R for Carrying 3 Bike Kuat Transfer
    To carry more than 2 bikes on a hitch bike rack the hitch has to be higher than a Class I so the EcoHitch part # 306-X7333 that you referenced (Class II) is the hitch to use and will allow you to carry a Kuat Transfer V2 bike rack part # KU24FR. Your total weight of bikes and racks being around 150 would easily work well with the 200 lb capacity of this hitch. You do not need to keep the weight at 2/3 the capacity. As long as you are under the weight capacity you are totally fine.

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2015 VW Golf Type R
    I'll start off by addressing your first question; yes, the Curt # C11564 is a confirmed fit on your 2015 VW Golf type R. When it comes to choosing between the EcoHitch # 306-X7333 and the Curt, you'll find that the EcoHitch is just a little bit more hidden than the Draw-Tite hitch-but they're both technically concealed cross-tubes; the 2" EcoHitch # 306-X7332 will also be more hidden than the Draw-Tite since both EcoHitches are installed the same way.

  • Suggestions for Class I Hitch Compatible Bike Rack for 65 lb Fat Tire E Bikes
    If you can reduce the weight of each bike to 50 lbs or less by removing the battery packs, the Thule T2 Classic, part # TH9045 would be ideal. The rack is compatible with a Class I hitch, and can accommodate 2 bikes weighing up to 50 lbs each with tires up to 5 inches wide. If removing the battery packs would reduce the weight of your bikes to 60 lbs or less, the Kuat NV 2.0, part # NV12G would be a good alternative once the # APBK fat bike adapter kit is added.
