The ball mount included in this kit inserts into the center block of the hitch in place of the receiver attachment. A 2" hitch ball is included with the ball mount, making it ready to tow with out of the box.

If you want to take your bikes to the trail with your family this summer, you have plenty of options. You can carry your bikes on top of your car with a roof rack, but that bulky rack can increase drag on your ride. You can use a trunk rack, but that's a pain to mount and it can scratch your car's paint. Or you can install a hitch on your ride and use a hitch-mounted bike rack to carry your bikes.

This rack receiver is designed to act as a mounting point for your hitch bike rack or cargo carrier. Just slide the shank of your carrier into the receiver for use, and when you're done you can not only remove the carrier, but the receiver as well, leaving your vehicle looking clean and unmodified.

Completely Hidden Design

Nothing can ruin the clean, stylish look of your vehicle like a giant piece of metal bolted beneath its bumper. Luckily, with the Stealth Hitches rack receiver, you never have to worry about messing up your vehicle's lines.

Removable receiver

This hitch installs behind your bumper, keeping the cross tube concealed and leaving only the hitch receiver visible. Even better, the receiver can be easily removed from the cross tube when it's not in use so that you won't see any trace of the hitch. This means that you can retain that clean, from-the-factory look for your ride, while still being able to carry your bikes and gear on the next family road trip.

Simple Set Up

The receiver can be attached or detached in seconds with no tools required. To insert the receiver, simply pop the base up into the stainless steel block at the center of the hitch until it automatically latches in place.

push lock

Be sure to then press the lock on the side of the block to fully secure the receiver. When you're finished carrying your bikes or cargo, use the included key to unlock the latch. Then turn the handle on the block clockwise and remove the receiver. You can stow the receiver in a safe place, like your vehicle's rear cargo area, or you can use a convenient carrying case (391CASER - sold separately).

hitch plug and center block

And when you're not using the receiver attachment, the included hitch plug covers the center block's opening to protect the hitch's body from dirt and debris. 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.

  • 2017 Audi Q7 Stealth Hitch for Use with a Bike Rack
    The Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver part # 391AUDQ716 is exactly what you're looking for. This will allow you to easily carry your bike rack down the road. Just be sure not to exceed the recommended tongue weight of the Audi Q7 which is listed in your owners manual. The instructions are linked below for you to check out. As far as your back up sensors and your back up camera you are definitely going to have interference. When the opening of the hitch is not installed or when it is...

  • Is Cutting Required to Install Trailer Hitch on 2020 Audi Q7
    Yes, all of the hitches we carry for your 2020 Audi Q7 require fascia trimming. The Curt, part # C13277 has the least amount of trimming. I've attached pictures that show how much trimming is needed for each hitch. Despite the Curt requiring less trimming I prefer the Stealth hitches for your Audi. The appearance after the hitch is installed is a lot nicer in my opinion. With the Curt you see the receiver opening all the time and you can even kind of see the area that was trimmed. With...

  • Is Fascia Trimming Required to Install Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2020 Audi Q7
    Because of its extremely hidden nature (the hitch essentially becomes invisible to the eye when it's not in use) the Stealth Hitch # 391AUDQ716T will indeed require some fascia trimming on your 2020 Audi Q7 during installation. This is to allow the drop-down receiver to protrude through the bumper when it's attached. The instructions that will come included do a really great job of outlining what needs to be cut. I have attached an image from this manual below so you can get a better...

  • Towing Capacity of Stealth Hitch Kit that Fits 2017 Audi Q7
    The Stealth hitch kit part # 391AUDQ716T has a trailer towing capacity of 9,000 lbs so it would easily handle the 7,700 lb towing capacity of your 2017 Audi Q7. It also comes with a ball mount setup and trailer wiring so it takes care of everything you'd need to tow as well.

  • Towing Capacity Of Aftermarket Hitches Vs. OEM Towing Packages For A 2019 Audi Q7
    The capacity of a towing system is limited by it's lowest rated component. There are hitches in our lineup rated for more than the 6,000 lbs referenced, such as the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76076 so as long as the 2019 Audi Q7 is capable of towing up to the hitch maximum of 7,700 lbs of Gross Trailer Weight on the Draw-Tite and the other components like the ball mount, ball, etc. are rated for the job, towing capacity shouldn't be reduced.

  • Stealth Hitch for 2017 Audi Q7 That Won't Affect Hands Free Lift Gate
    With the Stealth hitch that fits your 2017 Audi Q7 part # 391AUDQ716 the hands free lift gate sensors would not be affected at all. The trimming of the fascia is not near enough to the sensors to be an issue at all. Since this hitch has a lower opening that totally removes when not in use so the sensors would not be affected like other options.

  • Best Hitch 2019 Audi Q7 that Allows Hands Free Lift Gate to Function
    It's possible that with the Curt hitch part # C13277 installed on your 2019 Audi Q7 you'd have limited access to the hands free liftgate function of your vehicle. You'd be limited to kicking to either side of the hitch opening. Now the best option for your vehicle is the Stealth hitch part # 391AUDQ716 that you referenced as the lower hitch opening removes when not in use so your hands free liftgate wouldn't be affected at all.

  • Recommended 4 Pole Trailer Wiring Harness for 2018 Audi Q7
    To provide a 4 pole trailer connector, you'd need the # 119250KIT wiring harness which installs without needing to cut or splice into any of the factory wiring. I'll link you to a video that will walk you though the install. The video shows the same part being installed on a 2018 Audi Q7.

  • Parts Needed to Add a 7-Way to a 2019 Audi Q7
    We do sell some wiring harness options for your 2019 Audi Q7 and we can get you to a 7-Way round style that works with your RV plug. To start off we have the T-One # 119190KIT which splices into your OEM wiring or the ZCI Wiring # 119250KIT which clamps around your OEM wiring and senses when your light functions activate so you can avoid splicing into your OEM wiring. For a fully-functioning 7-Way you just need to add the Universal Wiring Kit # ETBC7. This pulls the basic lighting functions...

  • Recommended Trailer Brake Controller For 2017 Audi Q7 With Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch
    For your 2017 Audi Q7 with the Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch # 391AUDQ716T installed I recommend the Redarc Tow Pro Elite # RED44FR as it is the lowest profile trailer brake controller so it will not be bulky and in the way, and often looks like a factory option. This controller is proportional meaning that it will match the braking intensity of the trailer brakes to the intensity you apply the brakes in your Q7 for a smooth, safe stop. You will also need # 5506 to run the blue...

  • Compatibility of Curt Echo and 2-5/16 Inch Ball With Stealth Hitches Hidden Hitch on 2017 Audi Q7
    Yes, you can use a 2-5/16" ball like the # C40007 with the Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 391AUDQ716T. The only requirement for it to fit this ball mount is a 1" diameter shank. Regarding the Curt Echo # C51180, I do not think this will work. You are correct, the 7-way connection for the # 391AUDQ716T faces the ground. The Echo does have a strap to keep it secure, but assuming it didn't fall out you would have the brake controller hanging down along with the 7-way plugged...
