  • Completely Hidden
  • Stealth Hitches
  • 350 lbs TW

This completely hidden hitch keeps your vehicle looking like it just came off the assembly line. Remove the receiver for a fully concealed look when you're not carrying your bikes to the trail. Only for use with hitch-mounted racks and carriers.

  • Totally hidden design offers a clean, from-the-factory look
    • Cross tube is concealed behind your rear bumper
    • Receiver detaches with no tools and can be stowed away when not in use
  • Sturdy center block allows secure mounting and easy removal of rack receiver
    • Integrated lock protects the rack receiver from theft
    • Durable stainless steel construction resists corrosion
  • Hitch won't affect ground clearance or block your trunk's foot-access sensor
  • Simple, bolt-on installation - no drilling or welding required
    • Uses existing connection points to protect your vehicle's crumple zones

  • Receiver opening: 2" x 2"

Note: This rack receiver is for hitch-mounted accessories only. The receiver tube included with this hitch cannot be used for towing.

If you would like to upgrade this rack receiver for towing, you will need to purchase the Stealth Hitches towing kit (391CONVOC5 - sold separately). 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.

  • Maximum gross trailer weight with towing kit: 3,500 lbs
  • Not rated for weight distribution systems

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. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it, and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

This completely hidden hitch keeps your vehicle looking like it just came off the assembly line. Remove the receiver for a fully concealed look when you're not carrying your bikes to the trail. Only for use with hitch-mounted racks and carriers.


Love the hitch! Had a problem with the rubber protective plug falling out of the stainless block in sub zero temperature. Fortunately, it fell out while parked in my driveway, so I didn’t lose it. Otherwise, I am very happy with this premium hitch.

  • Is the Stealth Hitch for a 2020 Subaru Crosstrek Completely Hidden

  • Availability of Trailer Hitch for 2020 Subaru Crosstrek
    Yes, for your 2020 Subaru CrossTrek there are a couple hitch assemblies available from Stealth that are confirmed to fit and will work great. If you only plan on using the hitch for accessories like a bike rack or cargo carrier, the Stealth # 391SUCT18 will work perfectly. If you think you will tow a trailer from time to time as well you will want the Stealth # 391SUCT18T instead, which also includes the needed ball mount component AND wiring for towing. These are extremely durable...

  • Hitch Recommendation For 2020 Subaru Crosstrek
    Yes there is a hitch fit for you to carry your bike rack with Stealth Hitches Rack Receiver part # 391SUCT18 for the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek. The Stealth Hitch is a completely hidden design because of it's removable receiver tube. When the hitch is not in use you can easily remove the receiver tube, when it's time to carry the bike rack reinsert it into the quick latching mechanism and it locks in. The latching mechanism is a tight connection so you won't experience any rattling like with...

  • Concealed Trailer Hitch For 2020 Subaru Crosstrek To Carry Bike Rack
    The only concealed cross tube option at this time for the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek is the Stealth Hitches Rack Receiver part # 391SUCT18 which is a completely hidden option when not in use for a nice OEM look. The receiver latches into a stainless steel latching mechanism under the bumper and can be removed when not in use. The connection does not require bolts like other hidden hitches and it's a snug fit to eliminate the rattling noise you may experience with other brands. This hitch design...

  • Best Looking Hitch on the 2020 Subaru XV Crosstrek
    I really like the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class III - 2" part # e98912 . This hitch offers really easy installation and is mainly hidden with just the receiver tube opening being exposed (see photo). This one has a lot of bang for the buck when comparing it to others because it can be used for towing or for recreational use(bike racks, cargo carriers, etc.) The Stealth Hitches Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Towing Package - Custom Fit - 2" part...

  • Totally Hidden Trailer Hitch that Fits 2020 Subaru Crosstrek
    We have the the very hidden Stealth hitch part # 391SUCT18T that fits your 2020 Subaru Crosstrek. This hitch is completely hidden when not in use as the lower hitch opening is completely removable. This also comes with trailer wiring and a ball mount attachment so you'd be totally set with just the part # 391SUCT18T .

  • Hidden Hitch That Keeps Factory Look For A 2021 Subaru CrossTrek
    I recommend the Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitches # 391SUCT18T. This hitch is completely hidden when not in use, keeping that factory look that you're after. This hitch also includes a towing kit which includes a 2" ball that is meant to be used for towing. The receiver that comes with it is not to be used when towing, it is mean to be used strictly for accessories. As far as wiring is concerned, that is also included in this kit, and will simply plug into your vehicle's wiring harness...

  • Installation Time for a Stealth Hitch on a 2020 Subaru Crosstrek
    According the the installation guide, which I have linked for you, this should take approximately two hours to install. Please note that this hitch is only intended for hitch-mounted accessories such as bike racks, and not for towing. If you are interested in using this hitch for towing, then we offer the required towing kit, part # 391CONVOC5. If you were wanting to use the hitch to transport bikes, then be sure to take a look at our catalog of 2-inch racks. I've linked this as well.

  • Troubleshooting My T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness On My 2018 BMW X#
    There can be many reasons that your blinkers and your hazard lights are not working: your harness wires may not be connected securely, you may have plugs that are not seated together properly or making a good connection, you may require a fuse or a relay is blown or missing, or the ground may be insufficient. In order to troubleshoot your setup you will need a circuit tester. I recommend the Hook Probe Circuit Tester, part # PTW2993. There are four methods you will use to trouble shoot...

  • Will Stealth Hitches # 391SUCT18 Fit a 2020 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid?
    We do have some hitches available for your 2020 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid, but unfortunately the Stealth Hitches # 391SUCT18 has not been fit tested yet on the hybrid model. This means that it might fit, but the manufacturer hasn't been able to test it on your vehicle so there's no way to know for sure. The only hitch available that has been confirmed to fit your hybrid model is the Draw-Tite # 76209. This a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver and has a gross towing weight capacity of 4,500...

  • Recommended Hidden Hitch for 2021 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid
    The only concealed crosstube/hidden trailer hitch options for a 2021 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid are the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7365 and Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver part # 391SUCT18. These options both have a concealed crosstube as well as removable receiver tube. The main differences is that the Stealth uses a hand knob and the EcoHitch requires a tool.

  • Is Draw-Tite Hitch Hidden Like Curt Hitch for 2020 Subaru Crosstrek
    The hidden design of the Curt hitch # C12184 is very appealing and since Draw-Tite actually doesn't have a hidden crosstube design for your 2020 Subaru Crosstrek I definitely recommend going with it over the Draw-Tite # 36644. Curt has a great reputation when it comes to trailer hitches and we have actually found that their hitches tend to have better welds and a thicker powder coat which combined means they hold up better than the Draw-Tite versions. I would like to point out that the...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Options for 2020 Subaru Crosstrek
    The trailer hitches are finished with a durable powder coating. The Curt and Draw-Tite hitches are welded together from tube stock and flat steel that are very similar. In my opinion, Curt does a tiny bit better job with their powder coat application. When given the choice, I always recommend using a Class Ill hitch because there's a much greater selection of hitch mounted accessories available for the more common 2 inch Class III receiver. Although the Curt # C13382 and Draw-Tite # 76209...

  • Best Bike Rack And Trailer Hitch Receiver For Carrying 2 Electric Bikes On A 2021 Subaru Crosstrek
    Since your 2021 Subaru Crosstrek has a max tongue weight of 200lbs you do not want to exceed that. If you came up with 190lbs by adding your 2 electric bikes and a bike rack together, then you will be fine since it is still under the 200lb weight capacity of your vehicle. The Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver 2" # 391SUCT18 is confirmed to fit all models of the 2021 Crosstrek and has a high enough weight capacity to suit your needs.

  • What Is the Difference Between the EcoHitch and Stealth Hitch for the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek
    The difference between the EcoHitch # 306-X7365 and the Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Towing Kit - Custom Fit - 2" # 391SUCT18T is that the Stealth hitch comes with everything you'd need to tow a trailer including the hitch ball and ball mount, as well as the trailer wiring harness. The 2020 Subaru Crosstrek only has a 200-lbs tongue weight capacity and a 1500-lbs towing capacity and you're always limited by the lowest rated component in your towing setup; in this case...

  • Why EcoHitch is Better Than a Stealth Hitch for a 2021 Subaru Crosstrek
    We have quite a few installation videos for your 2021 Subaru Crosstrek but sadly none for the Stealth Hitches item # 391SUCT18T. I have a better recommendation for a hitch for your Crosstrek. This one has an installation video, will offer you the same abilities, and will save you some money. I recommend the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver item # 306-X7365. This hitch is custom fit and bolts to your Crosstrek with included hardware. This hitch has a 2" x 2" receiver which is perfect...
