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 2005-2006 R53 Hatchback 'S' and 2004-2008 R52 Convertible 'S' models that have the Black filler panel above the rear exhaust tips (NOT FOR MODELS WITH THE REVERSE OR FOG LIGHT). 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 a small hole where the black grill clips into place above the exhaust tips.

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.

Love your business and your attempt to service MINI owners. One suggestion for you. When you feature a produce on the front of your emails each time, you should explain just exactly what the part is, what it does, and why a MINI owner would want to replace something on their car with it. All of us are not mechanics and might not recognize a picture of a part. As you do the site now, you always put these things in there and the copy is written as though everyone knows exactly what the part is for.

Another idea, what are the types of things that many MINI owners can do with their cars in terms of customization. Your site is so vast and the number of ideas so large, it's hard for the average person to get their arms around what you offer and why we should buy. You write as though we already know what we want when we come to your site. In actuality, many MINI owners who are not car-savvy don't even know what they might be looking for.

I hope this is helpful.

Best.

After many years I am finally in $$ position to own my "dream" car AND do what I want with it. Not Porsche, not Ferrari. My MINI.

I'm learning about my options for my "07 S Convertible. It's nice to have help/support from OUTMOTORING.

I've survived my Harleys and my sailboats; now it's time for my love-lust since HighSchool, Thanks for your help and support.

(And I don't need anyone else's permission.)

See? Wait long enough and it's yours.
