Have you been dying to add a hitch to your VW but just can’t quite bring yourself to make changes to it? We completely understand, and so does user “Stealth TDI” from the TDIClub forum – but, he has a great solution to allow you to bring extra cargo, bikes and a bike rack and much more.

“I like to maximize [Volkswagen’s] versatility. I drive nearly 30,000 miles per year, usually alone with some things in the trunk. I don’t need a truck, but sometimes I need to move things that are either too large or too dirty to put in my Volkswagen. I discovered the EcoHitch, by Torklift Central… it’s most appealing feature is that it sits higher in the bumper than the competition, which means it has absolutely no impact on ground clearance.”
