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).

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 MINI R55 Clubman 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.


The license plate will need to be dropped down to the 2nd set of bolt locations in order to access the hitch. When not in use the license plate can be put back in the standard location.

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.

Fit and finish were perfect. Mounted right up, and looks great.

I own a 2013 Mini Cooper R59 and have ordered a significant amount of items from this website. ran into some issues with the fitment of some things but Aaron from Outmotoring was quick to solve the issue. I am very pleased with the quality of all the items I have ordered and as far as I am concerned, this is the only place to get genuine, high-quality MINI accessories and parts!

Thanks for the great service!
Nicholas


Greetings,

The above order arrived to my home yesterday. I've just opened the box and I wanted to let you know how delighted I continue to be with OutMotoring.com. This was my third order from OutMotoring and each one has been well-handled.

UPS was been the shipper. The shipping box arrived filthy and beat-up. I don't why delivery trucks never seem to be cleaned. Judging by the crushed areas on the shipping box the thought of damaged items crossed my mind. However, upon opening the box I found that the staff person(s) at OutMotoring made sure my order was extremely well packed. I believe that the packing paper used is an expensive grade and that along with care the in packing being generous and accomplished with thought had indeed protected the items in my order.
Further, the items in the shipment were in the manufacturer's packages and in perfect condition, clean and not damaged in any way. Nothing in the shipment had any appearance of having been mishandled such as being tossed around, dragged, or thrown about on a shipping bench.
Two of the items were T-Shirts, and these had been placed in separate zip sealing plastic bags that I expect were supplied and handled by OutMotoring. The T-Shirts had been respectfully folded, and even the excess air was pushed out of the plastic bags. Beautifully done.

When I placed this order I made note that my previous order had included two window stickers that were defective. I didn't ask for a refund or exchange of these because I was concerned of it being thought of as my having made a mistake during the application and trying to get you to pay for that. But I knew the importance of this defect for other customers and decided the best thing to do would be note the issue so that the remaining stickers could be inspected.
It turned out that I had joyful surprise finding that included in this shipment were three of the replacement window stickers. Wow! And without my asking, just from a note. That was a very kind thing to do.

I'd like to say that at one time I called your office. I don't remember if this was due to a concern or if I'd had a question. I spoke with one of the owner's and I'm sorry I don't remember his name. But that call was so well-handled that it left me about as favorably impressed as can be. In my short history in being an OutMotoring customer I've been very, very, happy with the products, the respectful packaging, and the kindness in client handling. Outstanding!

In thinking about myself and everyone that I know, daily life has persistent yet needless stressors ranging within all of the various areas we take part in. So having the resource of OutMotoring is a joy due to your practice of (what must be) a business mandate of flawless operation and holding customers at a high level of esteem. I think we'd be living in a happier country if the interactions we have with other people during engagement of a common accomplishment were to use your model. I'm seeing deep respect at the root.
I thank you for what you do, and what you are. I recommend OutMotoring to anyone seeking the products that you carry. I offer my best wishes that you're always able to keep such a good thing going.

Perhaps at this point you might think that I'm some kind of nut case, but understand that I've been so impressed and pleased with my OutMotoring experiences that it became important to me that I spend time to write this, and choose my words in a way that you would understand exactly what I mean. I owned a business for twenty-five years and I put a lot of weight in what customer's would tell me. I offer this to benefit you and your fine operation.

Sincerely,

Mark
