2022-2023 VW GTI trailer hitch features:
Stainless Steel trailer hitch receiver
Our rust free trailer hitch receiver design features a stainless steel hitch receiver that will never rust. Your trailer hitch mounted bike racks and accessories will never become fused to your trailer hitch receiver allowing you the versatility required and expected of a trailer hitch.
Why other trailer hitches rust
The critical point of connection between your hitch and your accessories is the receiver opening. That is why it is necessary that your trailer hitch receiver is composed of stainless steel to prevent this. A small insignificant piece of stainless steel on a part of the hitch that is offered by the other guys will not cut it because that is not the location where your hitch mounted bike racks and trays insert to. The theory behind the other designs on the market is it prevents the removeable stealth receiver design from fusing with and getting stuck into the vehicle frame mounted part of the trailer hitch - but it does not prevent your receiver from becoming a nasty rusty stain inducing eye sore and it does not prevent your hitch-mounted accessories from fusing together with rust. These type of hitch designs are not only inconvenient, but they eliminate the ability to use your trailer hitch for anything else because your accessory is forever fused into it.
Trailer Hitch Style
Our EcoHitch® line comes in three styles: Stealth, Hidden and Invisi. The VW GTI trailer hitch features our Stealth Design. All EcoHitch® models are precision manufactured to have hidden cross tubes when installed. The only part of this hidden Stealth hitch that is ever visible is the receiver when in use – but wait, that is not all: when not in use – simply remove the receiver to restore to your factory look – it’s like it was never there. This hitch also has a higher level of ground clearance than other hitches available. What it boils down to? No jumbo metal hitch hanging down low behind and below your rear bumper.
Hitch Receiver Size
This VW GTI trailer hitch is made to accommodate your xdrive50 bike rack, cargo trays and hauling needs. It features a 2 inch receiver opening which is the most common size for all your carrying needs.
It was designed with simplicity in mind. It features a 100 percent bolt on installation which means you don’t drill into your frame at all – we use existing mounting locations that work with the design of your Bolt. This leads us to another reason you want this hitch – it does not interrupt the aerodynamics of your vehicle’s design because it is tucked behind your bumper and prevents you from having to mount your bikes and other cargo on your roof.
EcoHitch® trailer hitch strength
This VW GTI trailer hitch will be rated the to match or exceed the factory ratings of this vehicle.** It is coated in high impact powder coat featuring our Chasm Black finish. The powder coating process for our EcoHitch® is time intensive and includes sand blasting which is something other manufacturers fail to do.

Vehicle Owner’s Manual
**Although your EcoHitch® tongue weight and tow weight rating might be exceedingly high – this is because we build our hitches to withstand all kinds of beatings – your vehicle’s towing capacity could be lower. Please consult your vehicle’s owners manual to determine your factory tow weight rating and never exceed it. No aftermarket products can increase your factory tow weight rating. If your vehicle's tow rating is less than the rated towing capacity on your EcoHitch® trailer hitch, your trailer hitch capacity is limited to your vehicle's factory rated towing capacity. Please check your owner’s manual to confirm your vehicle is rated to tow. As a general rule, the use of extensions, hitch adapters, bike racks, cargo trays and other towing accessories can reduce the tongue weight capacity / vertical load capacity of your vehicle’s receiver hitch. When extensions, hitch adapters, bike racks, cargo trays and other towing accessories are added to your receiver hitch and are under 12” in length, it reduces load capacity by 25 percent, and if it is over 12” it reduces load capacity by 50 percent.
