Traveling across the country in your Golf R is easier than ever!

The bike rack now installed in the EcoHitch receiver!

You’re going places in your high-performance, daring VW Golf R – so why not let this trailer hitch for Volkswagen Golf R help make your travels even better, especially for a trip across the country? Living in Toronto, Canada, Dave Cheng took his Golf R on a trip across the country to Whistler, British Columbia.


“The hitch was rock solid and noise-free with two big bikes on the back during my entire 4,500 kilometer journey across the country. Torklift makes premium hitches, with tight tolerances to keep the hitch as stealthy as possible.”

-Dave Cheng

“I drove through a brief but frightening rain storm in Montana. Sheets of water reduced visibility to zero. Side wind gusts pushed my car literally halfway into the next lane. I’ve never experienced anything like that before, and I believe it would’ve ripped a roof rack clean off the car. The bikes didn’t budge one bit mounted on the hitch bike rack.”

-Dave Cheng, VWvortex


This 100 percent bolt-on hitch installation requires absolutely no drilling into the car’s frame. That means you can have many ventures and years of use without having to worry about the frame of your vehicle rusting from other trailer hitches that require drilling. Why are hitch-mounted accessories more convenient? Unlike roof racks that interfere with aerodynamics, loading accessories using your EcoHitch will also eliminate vertical clearance issues and potential damage to your VW Golf R while loading and unloading. Take the easy route and skip the overhead lifting.

With the EcoHitch trailer hitch, you have a variety of accessories you can use with it!
