EcoHitch vs Draw-Tite Hidden Trailer Hitch Comparison for 2016 VW Golf


Hello, I read all the posted questions but one answer stated that the eco hitch is hidden while the draw tight is not. Both 1 1/4 hitches seem to be in the same same position in the car. Can you please clarify? Is quality similar for both? with the sale, the draw tight is 1/2 the price.


Expert Reply:

Both the EcoHitch and Draw-Tite trailer hitches fit your 2016 Volkswagen Golf and both feature similar specs. Both the Draw-Tite # 24975 and the EcoHitch # 306-X7333 feature a design that conceals the crossbar beneath the rear fascia. The EcoHitch is slightly more concealed due to the receiver being attached more closely to the crossbar than it is on the Draw-Tite hitch. They are otherwise nearly identical in terms of fit, function, and installation.

I recommend the DrawTite hitch as it is durable and has a clean, from-the-factory look and is a bit easier to install, as it doesn't require trimming of the rear fascia.
