Details

Please note, our product image may show the Hidden Hitch AND optional accessories (which are NOT included in the base price). Please see drop down menu to add a Drawbar (the removable part that has the actual tow ball to pull a trailer) or a Wiring Kit (only needed if a trailer is pulled).

Image shown has a bike rack installed for reference only and is not included.

Most of our customers purchase our hitch to attach a bike rack and do not require a Drawbar or Wiring kit.

The MniDoMore 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 MniDoMore Hidden Hitch for the 2011 and NEWER MINI R56 Hatchback BASE, R57 Convertible BASE, R58 Coupe BASE AND R59 Roadster BASE models ONLY. The hitch is a custom designed 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.

This hitch is accessed through the opening for the rear fog light (or black plastic filler panel) which must be removed when the hitch is in use. The light (or filler panel) is easily removed by pushing the left and right tabs on the side of the light behind the bumper. Once released the wiring connector can be disconnected and the hitch can be used.

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.

3 orders and I can say that Out Motoring has a customer for life. Shipping has been exceedingly quick, prices are more than fair (beating competition by at least $1), and the reward points are a nice touch to take a little money off the next order. I'll definitely be coming back for more once the weather warms back up.

Ordered the rear set delete kit (with the seat belt hole option) planning on using it as a platform for my dogs instead of having the enter through the door and sit on the rear seat. After reading through the install procedures and prepping the car for install I noticed that there is only one bolt securing the delete kit. This may be ok for weight reduction but it not good for use with pets.

Purchased the Red Slat Cover for my 2017 Cooper S hardtop. Dealings with Aaron Cornaby were terrific. Fast communication, fast shipping, excellent product. These guys have my future business and I coiuldn’t be happier with the Red Slat Cover. It’s a really unique trim piece to add some of the JCW appearance to the front end of my Cooper S and it matches the red trim on my black and red bonnet stripes very well. Thanks! Steve
