You’re going places in your sporty, adventurous VW Golf – so why not let this trailer hitch for Volkswagen Golf help make your travels even better?


“I have been using a Curt hitch on my 2011 Audi A4 Avant for about 6 years… When I came across the Torklift Central EcoHitch I immediately ordered one and had my hitch replaced. The next project was replacing the hitch on my wife’s 2016 VW GTI from a Curt hitch to the Torklift Central EcoHitch. I cannot recommend the product enough for the fit, finish, functionality and install quality.”
                -Andrew Olson, new EcoHitch owner


The old hitch that Andrew had installed after. There's quite a height difference!

We agree Andrew – when it comes to trailer hitches for the Volkswagen Golf, it’s better to have something that won’t drag on the ground when it’s loaded with bikes. Especially if it comes in a 2-inch receiver! Luckily, the EcoHitch for the VW Golf has 2-inch and 1¼-inch receivers available. Because of the two different sizes available, this VW Golf hitch is compatible with a variety of accessories including cargo trays, bike racks and more!

”The primary use of the hitch has been for a 1up USA bike rack. When backing out of my driveway, the rack no longer drags on the ground due to the hitch fitting higher and cleaner on the car.”
        -Andrew Olson


The EcoHitch is rated at 300 pounds tongue weight and 2,000 pounds towing and engineered to meet stringent national SAE J684 towing safety standards using state-of-the-art testing methods. Perfect for all your bike rack and accessory needs.


“I had always noticed a certain amount of bounce/wiggle with the 1 ¼-inch [Curt] receiver. I was able to order a replacement receiver part for the rack, converting it over to a 2-inch receiver [to work with the 2-inch EcoHitch]. That immediately took care of the issues and is now much more solid.”
               -Andrew Olson


This 100% bolt-on hitch installation requires absolutely no drilling into the car’s frame so you can have many adventures and years of use without having to worry about the frame of your vehicle potentially rusting from hitches that require drilling. The installation is a non-obtrusive process that can be performed at home with some tools, at Torklift Central in Kent, Wash., or by an EcoHitch Installer of your choice.
