Hauling a trailer with the EcoHitch

Everyone loves it when people are willing to share their experiences and tips when it comes to doing activities, or in this case, installing an EcoHitch. We recently discovered that Jared Serfozo, aka Proximidude on YouTube, shared an awesome video that he made installing the EcoHitch trailer hitch for the 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen.

The video is helpful and easy to follow. Jared demonstrates how simple and quick it is to install the EcoHitch. Below is a breakdown of his video and more information about the EcoHitch and the 2015 VW Golf Sportwagen hitch installation.

Jared talking about the EcoHitch

“It sits up real nice and this is exactly why I wanted this particular hitch. I like that it was hidden behind the bumper and that it wasn’t too hard to install.” – Jared Serfozo 

We couldn’t have said it any better ourselves Jared! This hidden hitch for VW Golf Sportwagen is designed to complement the body of your car so your car remains aerodynamic and lightweight. The ground clearance is also not adversely effected making it so when you hit a big bump your trailer hitch won’t scrape.

Each and every EcoHitch is created to fit specifically to the car so there is very little wiggle room and everything fits precisely. The hitch is also 100% no-drill, just as Jared demonstrates in the VW Golf EcoHitch
installation video, so you don’t have to worry about damaging your frame from drilling into the structure.

After the Installation 

Able to haul 2,000 

After Jared installs the hitch in the video, he explains why he chose the hidden trailer hitch: “the reason why I wanted this particular hitch is because it sits up higher because usually the hitches you get have a bar that drops down and you can see the bar.” With 200 lbs. tongue weight and 2,000 lbs. towing weight, this trailer hitch for 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen can carry and haul bike racks, cargo trays and yes, even a U-Haul trailer. Jared told us that the hitch worked great for hauling his 5x8 U-Haul trailer, even towing it for eight hours straight.
