    What's included in each Audi Q7 Hitch package?

    Stealth Hitches offers a rack only package, a towing package, and a combination tow and rack package.  The same cross beam and vertical latch block are used on all packages.

    The Rack Package uses a detachable rack receiver (2" and 1 1/4" square tube) 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 Tow 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.  The tight connection also allows our hitch to pass the more stringent European test requirements which carry a higher towing rating than the US rating.  Our hitches conform to both US (SAE) and European (EU) test requirements.  

    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.

    Nice hitch - wiring is hard to figure out

    Hitch is awesome - well made! Installation was easy. The wiring harness is driving me crazy. I cannot find the correct trailer wires for a 2017 Audi Q7. I have tested every wire that makes sense. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Fantastic Hitch!

    We had a local shop install a Stealth Hitch on our brand new Q7. The work was done in less than two hours and the hitch is perfect. There is no evidence of the hitch while uninstalled, and sliding the hitch on and locking it in is easy! I highly recommend for anyone who needs a hitch.

    Exceptional Design and Fit

    Without seeing many reviews for my vehicle, I took a bit of a leap of faith on this hitch. This fit my 2017 Q7 perfectly, the instructions were straightforward and better than Audi’s online video for their OEM hitch, and the process was very smooth. I’m very impressed with the design. Very little play in the hitch, easy to attach and detach, and you’d never know the vehicle had a hitch when detached. Excellent design and well worth the price!
