    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 (G05)  xLine Conversion Package.

    The BMW X5 (G05)  xLine 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 (G05)  xLine 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.  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 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.

    2019 BMW X5 Hitch

    I have to say this is one of the best hitches I have ever owned. The body shop was even impressed with this setup and quality. This is definitely the best option especially for a high end vehicle nothing worse than an **** hitch sticking out the back. Great product, great customer service when I or the body shop called. Would definitely recommend no hesitation....Thank you!

    Killer app for my X5

    The hitch is great - highest-end imaginable. And it works great. But installation is a huge chore and the instructions are vague and challenging at best. I got through it but had to wing it through the tough parts (ortho surgeon - I’m good with stuff like this). I called the company for help with the electricals and the guy I spoke to was absolutely amazing - seriously top-notch. Overall I’m very pleased but the instructions for installation really need revision.

    2020 BMW X5 Stealth Hitch

    They have been very helpful because my BMW dealer who said they know how to install these hitches did not properly follow the instructions. Stealth was able to assist them to get things properly installed. The hitch is invisible and maintains the OEM functionality which is great.

    The perfect solution!

    The Stealth Hitch fit my 2019 X5 perfectly. The fitment is amazing. The quality of the components used it top notch. The hitch is solid, quiet and easy to use -best of all it disappears completely when not needed!
