      What's included in each Tesla Model 3 Hitch package?

      The Tesla Model 3 Hitch 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 Tesla Model 3 Hitch 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.

      Best hitch for Model 3

      I needed to buy a hitch for my Tesla Model 3 SR+ so that I can install a bike rack on the car. I did some research prior to purchasing the Stealth Hitch for my new vehicle. I believe this is the best option available. I was able to install, with my Son as a helper, in about 2 1/2 hours in my driveway. I'm very happy with the package overall. I've paired the hitch with a Kuat Sherpa 2.0 bike rack (35lbs), keeping the total weight on tongue to just over 100 lbs with (2) bikes, under the 200lb tongue weight. The only area where I would suggest improvement is that the hitch received has a small amount to play, which extends out to the bike rack. The Kuat rack has a very good 'ball type' system to eliminate rack sway but the hitch receiver induces play regardless. The colour (gray) is a nice match for my gray Model 3. And best of all, once removed, no receiver is visible on the car. Thanks!

      Great solution to transport my E bike with Model 3

      The Stealth Hitch works simply and safely……exactly what I was hoping for to be able to transport my E bike with my Thule bike rack. The simple hitch mount and lock design is excellent and easy to use, once you’ve done it a couple of times. Highly recommended!!

      Couldn’t be a better experience. The hitch appears strong, coated to fight salt & dirt and doesn’t appear to have any ‘play’ that would cause noise (though I haven’t hooked up anything to it yet). Very pleased!

      Good Quality - Difficult Installation

      The product is a very good quality, I used an installer recommended and glad I did, it took an experienced installer 4 hours. The electronics weren’t working after the install and required a “power off” procedure to recover. All is good now.

      Working great in Australia!

      I purchased my Model 3 Stealth Hitch and used MyUS to ship it to Australia. I've fitted it to the car and its all working great. I've written a blog post about it and detailed all the things you need to do to make it work properly on a Australian or European car with separate amber indicators and 7-pin trailers.
