These trailer receiver hitches have all been certified by Test Link Services, Inc. using SAE J684 Department of Transportation testing standards to meet a tongue weight rating of 200 lbs and a maximum tow rating of 1400 lbs. (2000 lbs for F60 Countryman). Many states require the use of a SAE J684 certified hitch for hauling and towing. These trailer receiver hitches are the only commercially available certified trailer hitch for the Mini Cooper S with a 200 lb tongue weight and 1400 lb towing weight (2000 lbs for F60 Countryman)! Get the strongest hitch here!

This hidden Hitch is custom engineered to fit specific MINI models and is one of the only hitches on the market that is hidden behind the bumper yet accessible for easy use when needed. The actual hitch is accessed through a small square hole in the rear black lower plastic fascia that will need to be cut during installation. Includes a black plug to cover the hole when not in use. 

This hidden Hitch is a heavy duty Steel assembly that mounts behind the plastic part of the MINI bumper and uses factory hardware and mounting location for a seamless and integrated look that is safe and secure and offers MINI owners the flexibility to haul, tow, attach or carry stuff they otherwise would never be able to. The hitch mounts between the large bumper support beam and the chassis. 

Accessing the hitch to insert the hitch lock pin requires reaching behind/under the plastic trim of the bumper. The first few times it will be a bit challenging to work 'blind' but it will get easier. 

Once installed, the hitch can be used to attach just about any off-the-shelf trailer, bike rack or luggage trays that have a 1-1/4" size connection. The vast majority of MINI drivers will use our hitch in conjunction with an aftermarket bike rack attachment (like Thule, Yakima, etc.). A 1-1/4" hitch connection is required and the post needs to be long enough to clear the bumper. 

The average installation time for this hitch is 1.5 to 2 hours. Add another 1 to 1.5 hours for the wiring kit.

These products are drop-shipped directly from the manufacturer. Product usually ships in 1-2 weeks. Delivery times may vary depending on inventory.
