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

2018 Audi Allroad

Bought this hitch for my 2018 Audi Allroad. I am very particular about the look of my cars and did not want a visible hitch. This was absolutely perfect. As a machinist and Mechanical engineer for 40 years I can tell you I was very impressed with the design, function and materials. When I saw that the big block of steel that receives the receiver part of the hitch was not painted I thought only one thing, this big hunk of metal has to be stainless steel. Quick check with a magnet confirmed this, no need for paint. That being said if you are not familiar with how body panels come off you might want to have it professionally installed. Pulling rear facias off of your new 60k car is not for the timid, however the instructions were very clear and concise. We travel with a very heavy Kuat bike rack for E-bikes and highly recommend this hitch.


It is very well made and we are very happy with the product. The receiver is very low and I needed to purchase a riser adapter to accommodate my bike rack. Without the adapter, the rack would scrape on even mild changes in road surface changes(gutters, speed bumps, etc.). The installation was straightforward and it was easy to do by myself in my garage. The hardware is high quality and the fitment is excellent. The only complaint is the interference with the rear electronics. The foot-activated hatch release rarely works now and there is a system error message when the hitch/bike rack are installed.


Love it. A little low on clearance in certain circumstances but love how “invisible” it is when not in use

2017 Audi A4 Allroad

Not too bad for a 10 out of 10 difficulty install. The hitch holes line up perfectly with the vehicle and the quality is top notch (to be expected for the premium price). I've installed hitches on a few prior year Audi wagons and the newer vehicles( 2017+) are the easiest so far.
If you're not a fan of cutting into your rear bumper, don't worry as you can't see these mods even from a distance. Also, you can get by with smaller cutouts than the instructions and still insert/lock/remove the hitch, but the template does provide clean lines for the mod.
