Hello all,
I've found threads around the internet and one here for older model eGolf, but wondering if anyone has experience installing a trailer hitch for bike rack on a 2018 eGolf.
Here's the previous thread on possible Curt hitch models. I understand it's a modular frame, so the standard 2018 Golf hitches *should work, but kind of an expensive gamble...
Here's the other thread for reference:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=217&hilit=bike

Also, I need to carry 2 bikes. I was hoping to use a trailer hitch and only install the bike rack when needed to avoid loss of range. A roof rack is a valid option, but I wonder if it'd kill range, even if I bought one of those expensive fairings. If anyone has pictures of a roof rack on 2018 that'd be apprectiated as well.
Thanks!

Hey there. I just got a 2019 e-Golf and I am searching for the same thing. I would like to use a tow hitch instead of a roof rack. Has anyone had any success doing this? I would like to buy the stealth version of the tow hitch.

I bought this for my 2017 eGolf

C11412 Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" for $112.56 from etrailer.com

Couldn't be happier..had it installed at a trailer shop, they said it was trivial. I carry my bikes on a Quik-Rack single and it's perfect for a mountain bike. Doubt a double would be good as it might stick out too much. I also worried it might not fit the eGolf, but no worries there.
