    What's included in each BMW X5 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 BMW X5 Hitch Conversion Package.

    The BMW X5 Hitch 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 BMW X5 Hitch Combo Hitch 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 Standard 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.

    Active Harness

    We also offer an active harness option for added features such as:

    • Disabling the back-up sensor to eliminate beeping while backing up to your trailer.
    • Rear camera zoom at the trailer connection point for positioning the vehicle and preventing damage to the vehicle.
    • Stability control to limit trailer sway. 
    • This harness requires the same programming as the factory hitch harness.
    • We can program your vehicle remotely, preventing the need to take the car to a dealer or BMW shop for programming.

    Lives up to ratings! As Advertised!

    Just had my local BMW dealer install my stealth hitch (rack only package) on my 2017 X5. No issues at all with installation and love the hidden, stealth implementation. Have already used it a couple of times with my Thule bike rack with no issues whatsoever. Great, high quality product!

    Stealth hitch on BMW 2018 X5 for bike rack

    Hi there - overall experience with Stealth Hitch has been stellar. Using the 2" for a Thule 2 bike rack. Couldn't be happier with the hitch and the Thule XTR bike rack. Now when not transporting the bikes no one even knows the hitch is there.

    Top Notch!

    Exceptional hitch! Had hitch professionally installed by one of the listed installers. Made for a great vacation now that we can take our bikes on vacation and remove the insert when not in use! Don’t cut corners on your investment! Go with Stealth!

    2018 BMW X5 M - Just Installed

    The combo hitch with active wiring was installed by Active Car & Truck but I have not used it for towing yet. Major comments are: 1. Installer was impressed with the installation instructions, quality of product and knowledge and support provided by Code My Car technician. 2. The ball mount is much easier to insert and remove than I thought it would be. 3. The 7 pin plug is a little harder to insert but doable if you don’t mind getting on your hands and knees… suggest you consider a spring loaded design so that the receiver can be pulled down for the connection and then retracted… alternatively unclipped and pulled down for connection then re-clipped out of sight. 4. The customer and technical support teams are absolutely fabulous… both pre-sales and post sales support was first rate and always very helpful. 5. Great product… great support!
