Hidden Design for a Clean, Factory Look

The EcoHitch Stealth trailer hitch is designed to be completely out of sight when you're not towing. The hitch's cross tube bolts onto your vehicle's frame, behind your rear bumper. No drilling or welding is required. Once installed, the cross tube will be completely concealed and only the receiver will be visible beneath your bumper. But unlike other hitches with hidden cross tubes, the Stealth goes one further. You can remove the receiver portion of the hitch for a completely out-of-sight setup. To mount the receiver, just insert it up into the access port that is built into the cross tube. Secure the receiver to the hitch with the supplied bolt and washers. When you're done towing, just remove the receiver portion to return your vehicle to its clean, factory appearance.


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 stand 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 Stealth trailer hitch is carefully researched and strength tested for a durable, high-quality hitch that can resist damage while on the road.

Etrailer and EcoHitch rock - Hitch arrived as predicted and installed just as advertised; instructions were clear and all the hardware was in the package. The cardboard box was punctured by the hitch during shipping but the hitch was not damaged - it's build like a tank! The removable 2" receiver bolts up very solid.

Install took about 2 - 3 hours by myself for mechanicals but electrical took longer - it's tough to route the power wire to the Curt trailer controller (also bought from etrailer) from the trunk to fuse panel. The included bolt threader worked fine; easier than I expected.

Why not 5 stars? No metal-to-metal clearance issues with SPT quad-tip exhaust on my 2010 STI SE but the front two bolts do touch the rubber exhaust hangers. Don't think it will be an issue but may shorten the front bolts to give more clearance.

Hints:
1. hang the hitch with a rope around the center section of the hitch, tied to the latch for the hatch - makes it easy to maneuver one side in place, tighten those two bolts then go the other side. If you loosely thread one nut on one of the bolts, you won't have to worry about pushing back into the frame while you're working on the other side.
2. Liberal use of PB Blaster to loosen the bumper beam bolts will make your life much easier - squirt as soon as you get the bumper cover off and it will be ready when you get around to taking the beam off.

Sorry about the poor quality of the pictures. The one without the bike rack shows hitch installed with receiver removed.

Everything was as expected. I will follow up with some better pictures when available.

I would recommend etrailer.

  • Is Trimming Rear Fascia of 2014 Subaru WRX Hatchback Required
    Yes, rear fascia trimming is required to install the EcoHitch part # 306-X7261 on your 2014 Subaru WRX Hatchback. The rear fascia has to be cut so that the shank of the hitch will fit. I attached a picture that shows where you'd need to trim the rear fascia.

  • How to Remove EcoHitch from 2009 Subaru Impreza
    The EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7261 you are referring to can be removed from your 2009 Subaru Impreza in the same way it was installed, which is to remove the bolts which can be done with a torque wrench, though keep in mind you also need to remove the bumper.

  • Hitch For A 2014 Subaru Impreza WRX 5 Door Hatchback With Invidia Exhaust
    For your 2014 Subaru Impreza WRX 5 Door Hatchback WRX with the Invidia single exhaust. I recommend the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" Item # 306-X7261. This hitch hugs the spare tire pan and mounts to the frame rail above the factory muffler. From what I have seen the factory muffler is much wider that the round shaped muffler on the Invidia exhaust. As long as your muffler comes straight out the back and is not angled it should be compatible.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2010 Subaru Impreza 5-Door with Single Exhaust
    I do have an option for you, however the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7261 referenced in your question is only designed to fit the 2010 Subaru Impreza 5-Door Wagon with the quad exhaust. It will not fit your Impreza if it features the single exhaust. If you have the single exhaust on your Impreza the best trailer hitch available is the Draw-Tite Class I # DT24959 that will use existing holes in the vehicle's frame for a no-drill installation and doesn't require an additional...

  • Is there a 1-1/4 Inch EcoHitch Option for a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX with Quad Exhaust
    The EcoHitch # 306-X7261 for your 2011 Subaru Impreza only has a 2 inch option but you can use reducer sleeve # HT02 to use 1-1/4 inch accessories with the 2 inch receiver. The use of a reducer sleeve does not decrease the hitch tongue weight capacity like other adapters would.

  • Can a 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX Tow a Trailer with EcoHitch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The EcoHitch Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7261 for wagon models or part # 306-X7279 for sedan models is a great option for a 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX and will allow you to tow a trailer up to 2,000 lbs. That said, you'd need to confirm the towing capacity in the owner's manual of the vehicle and go by the lower of the two ratings. In order to complete your setup you'd need the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 119250KIT and the etrailer Ball Mount Kit part # 989900.

  • Can a 2014 Subaru Impreza WRX Hatchback Tow a 2,000 lb Trailer
    According the online version of the owner's manual for your 2014 Subaru Impreza WRX Hatchback (page 8-13) Subaru says that your vehicle is not designed or intended to be used for towing a trailer. The reason there are trailer hitches like the EcoHitch # 306-X7261 that you referenced is for accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers. I wouldn't know how your vehicle would handle or perform under the 2,000 lb max weight of the trailer hitch as trailer hitch manufacturers only test their...

  • How To Use 1-1/4" Bike Rack with EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receivers like part # 306-X7261 are only offered with the 2" trailer hitch opening. That said, you can purchase a 1-1/4" trailer hitch opening separately using the EcoHitch Stealth Hitch 2" to 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter part # EH54FR. This option will give you the shortest overall length in regards to using a 2" to 1-1/4" adapter. It is not available with the 1-1/4" trailer hitch opening only.

    The EcoHitch 2-inch model # 306-X7261 is a confirmed fit on the 2008 Subaru Impreza 5-Door Wagon with Quad Exhaust. This hitch will fit WRX quad exhaust models, including the WRX STi. I contacted the tech staff at TorkLift, who makes the EcoHitch products, and my contact provided the written instructions for installing this item. I have forwarded these to you in a separate email.

  • Hitch for 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX Hatchback That Fits with Aftermarket Exhaust
    All hitch makers base their designs on a vehicle's stock exhaust setup. There are just too many aftermarket items to allow them to do testing to confirm hitch compatibility with a car that has one of these. Draw-Tite hitch # DT24959 and Curt # C11315 both fit the WRX hatchback with stock single exhaust as long as they are not the STi. EcoHitch # 306-X7261 does not fit your car. To help you check the fit with your exhaust I took a measurement of the Draw-Tite hitch. I measured from the...

  • Will EcoHitch Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit a 2008 Subaru Impreza Hatchback with Single Exhaust
    The only trailer hitch options for a 2008 Subaru Impreza Hatchback with single exhaust is the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # DT24959 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11315.

    At this time there is not a 2 inch hitch option available for your 2008 Subaru Impreza sedan from any of our manufacturers. The EcoHitch # 306-X7261 is a fit for the WRX models, but is not compatible with your Sedan. I reached out to the manufacturer and although they haven't tested it for a fit, they think the frame would line up but the trim would be an issue. There is not a 2 inch option available for your vehicle as it has a very limited capacity, so only Class I hitches like #...

    The EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 306-X7261 you asked from for your 2012 Subaru Impreza is not compatible with your 400 lb motorcycle with a carrier. This hitch is only rated for a max capacity of 300 lbs. That greatly surpasses the hitch weight capacity and doesn't even include the weight of the motorcycle carrier itself. Your best option would be to tow a small trailer like the Detail K2 Mighty Multi A-Frame Utility Trailer # K2MMT5X7. For this you...
