For use with the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch # 76268 on your 2019 Acura RDX (which is currently the only hitch available for this vehicle) I highly recommend the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack, which is available in Black # SH22B, Gray # SH22G, and Pearl # SH22P.

This is an excellent platform-style carrier that will secure your bikes by the front wheels without any frame contact. It features ratcheting hooks to allow for a precise and snug fit over the bikes, a super convenient foot lever that lets you tilt the rack back (with the bikes still loaded) for easy rear cargo access, and integrated locks to secure everything into place and help protect your investments. It can handle 2 bikes of up to 40 pounds each and its aluminum construction allows for a really lightweight unit at just 32 pounds for an easy install and removal.

In addition to all the excellent functional features on this carrier I also just happen to think that it has a really sleek appearance, especially when mounted to modern, brand new vehicles like your RDX, I have attached a short video demonstration that you can also check out.

I really can't be sure if there will eventually be a completely hidden aftermarket hitch available for your 2019 Acura RDX. Looking at trailer hitches available for the previous generation of the RDX there were options that offered a bit more of a concealed design but there wasn't one that was completely hidden when not in use. This could mean there's less of a chance for one coming out for the new RDX but these types of hitches are getting more and more popular so I can't say anything for certain.
