The 2" receiver installed on a 2017 Golf R!

Torklift Central is happy to announce we now offer a hidden EcoHitch for the latest addition to the Volkswagen line: the 2017 VW Golf R.

You love your VW, so why not get a trailer hitch that will make you love your Golf R even more? This VW Golf R hitch is designed to complement the underbody airflow and aerodynamics of the Golf. The only part of the hitch that is ever visible is the receiver, providing higher level of ground clearance than most hitches available.

The EcoHitch is a perfect complement for any bike rack or cargo tray for all your outdoor adventures!

With 1 ¼-inch and 2-inch available, the 2017 VW Golf R EcoHitch is compatible with all of your favorite hitch applications including cargo trays, bike racks and more! The EcoHitch is rated at 300 pounds tongue weight and 2,000 pounds towing and also engineered to meet stringent national SAE J684 towing safety standards using state of the art testing methods.

This 100% bolt-on hitch installation requires absolutely no drilling to the car’s frame. It’s a non-obtrusive process that can be performed at home with some tools, at Torklift Central in Kent, Wash. or by a Certified EcoHitch Installer.
