    What's included in each Audi Q5 hitch package?

    Stealth Hitches offers a rack only package and a combo package with tow and rack options. The same cross beam and vertical latch block are used on all packages so if you need to upgrade to tow later you can with the Audi Q5, SQ5 Conversion Package.

    The Audi Q5/SQ5 hitch Rack Package comes with standard 2" detachable rack receiver that accepts current versions of bike racks, ski racks, cargo platforms, and other square tube accessories.  A wiring harness is not required if rack connections are the customers only application.

    The Audi Q5/SQ5 Combo Package uses a detachable ball mount that operates differently than a typical square tube receiver hitch.  When inserted into the stainless-steel receiver block, a tight connection is created to the vehicle frame, eliminating the jerking and banging associated with square tube receivers type hitches during starts and stops. This solid connection creates less wear and tear on the vehicle transmission and is a more pleasurable ride for the passengers. 

    Stealth Wiring Harness

    Our "Stealth" wiring harness and controller is specifically designed to monitor and duplicate the tail light functions.  Drawing current from the tail light circuits can cause vehicle faults, especially on European vehicles.  Our controller draws current directly from the battery to eliminate this issue. For vehicles with numerous trailer lights, Stealth harnesses are designed to increase the current capacity from the typical 5-amp solid state limitation to a full 20 amps.

    Great hitch

    Fast shipping, innovative design and very functional. Love the fact that it looks OEM until you attach the towing receiver.

    Audi Q5/SQ5 (2018 - 2020) Stealth Hitch

    The hitch is nice but the instructions are incorrect and worrisome. I found a video online that had better instructions on where to find bolts for disassembly that the instructions did not have. Also, the instructions do not tell you how to seal two tubes to prevent car exhaust from getting into the interior cabin. A competitors video did all of these things. By pure luck, I was able to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning by finding a video fro9m a different manufacturer on how to properly seal these tubes. No thanks to the included instructions.

    Stealth is the only way to go.

    Stealth Hitch Steve answered my questions over the phone. The hitch arrived on time and the installer, Arvada German Garage in Colorado was wonderful to work with.

    As advertised

    I am not generally one who writes reviews but this time, felt compelled to do so. The stealth hitch really is fantastic. Ordered online, had it sent to the nearest installer that the web site referenced, and had it installed on my brand new Audi Q5. I must admit, I was very nervous about anyone other than Audi working on the car, but crossed my fingers and went for it. The installation was perfect, but more importantly, the hitch is exactly as advertised. Completely invisible when the hitch is detached. The hitch snaps firmly into the receiver, and carries my Thule hitch rack with two bikes with no play or rattles. When not using the rack, I simply remove it, detach the hitch, and the car looks as good as new with no unsightly hitch attached. Whole installation of hitch and rack or removal, takes 3 minutes or less. Couldn’t be happier with the stealth hitch. Thanks!
