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.

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.

Fits perfectly. Had to get this hitch delivered on separate occasions from different vendors due to alignment issues, but eventually got one that fit perfectly.




by:
2017 Volkswagen Golf

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.

Fast, reliable service! Comprehensive instructions and videos made installation a breeze!

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • EcoHitch or Draw Tite Hitch for 2019 Volkswagen Golf R Model
    The EchoHitch part # 306-X7333 and the Draw Tite part # 24975 that you mentioned for your 2019 Volkswagen Golf R model are both great options but for the better price and shorter install time I'd recommend the Draw Tite since both of them give you the same hidden style of 1-1/4 inch hitch.

  • EcoHitch vs Draw-Tite Hidden Trailer Hitch Comparison for 2016 VW Golf
    Both the EcoHitch and Draw-Tite trailer hitches fit your 2016 Volkswagen Golf and both feature similar specs. Both the Draw-Tite # 24975 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 Draw-Tite hitch. They are otherwise nearly identical in terms of fit, function, and installation. I recommend the DrawTite hitch as it...

  • EcoHitch vs Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for 2018 VW Golf R Model
    While both the Draw-Tite # 24975 and EcoHitch # 306-X7333 that fit your 2018 VW Golf R model are quality hitches with a 1-1/4" receiver, 200 lb tongue weight capacity and 2,000 lb towing capacity there is really just one major difference. That is that the EcoHitch is made of recycled materials and combines steel, stainless steel and aluminum while the Draw-Tite is simply made of steel.

  • Recommended EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Compatible with 2018 VW Golf GTI
    The EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 306-X7375 is the confirmed fit for your 2018 VW Golf GTI. The 1-1/4 inch # 306-X7333 and 2 inch # 306-X7332 will fit R models only and are not a fit for your GTI. Let me know if you have further questions.

  • Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch vs. EcoHitch Trailer Hitch for 2019 VW Golf R
    There are three trailer hitches which fit your 2019 VW Golf R model, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24975, EcoHitch Trailer Hitch # 306-X7333 (1-1/4" receiver) and # 306-X7332 (2" receiver), but I recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7332 because of two important differences, which are its 2" receiver and the fact it gives you the best ground clearance. The 2" receiver is important because this gives you a much wider range of options when it comes to the accessories...

  • Cutout Dimensions for Draw-Tite and EcoHitch Trailer Hitches on a 2018 Volkswagen Golf R
    The cutout of the Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24975 is 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" while for the EcoHitch # 306-X7333 and # 306-X7332 it is 3-1/4" x 3". 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...

  • What is the Difference Between the EcoHitch and Draw-Tite Hitches for 2019 VW Golf "R Model
    The primary difference between the EcoHitch # 306-X7332, EcoHitch # 306-X7333 and the Draw-Tite # 24975 is that the Draw-Tite # 24975 and EcoHitch # 306-X7333 only have 1-1/4" receivers, where the EcoHitch 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...

  • 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 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...

  • Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Vs EcoHitch Trailer Hitch 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. 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" reciever tube # 306-X7333 The Draw-tite # 24975 is a class I, so it has a 1 1/4" receiver tube opening. This limits the hitch to class I accessories and really narrows the...

  • Do Trailer Hitch Receivers for the 2016 Volkswagen Golf R Require Trimming
    We have trailer hitch receivers to fit your 2016 Volkswagen Golf R but he Curt you asked about, part # C11475, isn't designed for your car. It's for the 2017 model. We have two hitches from EcoHitch and one from Draw-Tite 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...

    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...

  • Hitch Recommendation For A 2018 Volkswagen Golf R
    Depending on what you intend on using your hitch for, you can select either the 1-1/4" hitch or a 2" receiver. A 2 inch Class III or higher trailer hitch generally will be stronger just by the nature of how much steel is used and the fact that 2 inch trailer hitches are built larger and with more towing capacity in mind. While there is no additional capacity provided, a 2" could provide flexibility to carry more accessories. The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7332 is my...

  • 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.

I've listed the dimensions of the cutouts below, but the Draw-Tite cutout is going to be slightly smaller than the cutout required to install the EcoHitch. Cutout sizes: 2-1/2’’ tall by 3-1/2” wide- Draw-Tite # 24975 3-1/4” wide x 3” tall - EcoHitch # 306-X7332 There is also a 2" EcoHitch # 306-X7333 available for the 2019...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2015 VW Golf Type R
    I'll start off by addressing your first question; yes, the Draw-Tite # 24975 is a confirmed fit on your 2015 VW Golf type R. When it comes to choosing between the EcoHitch # 306-X7333 and the Draw-Tite, 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.

Both hitches share the same capacities and both will be a fairly involved installation but neither requires drilling. Both include all the required mounting hardware.

  • 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.
