Trailer Hitch?

Ok, I know this sounds crazy, but it's spring and I would love to go Mountain Biking, but unfortunately there is no room in my vert. So now I am entertaining some type of hidden hitch that I could mount a bike carrier on. Has anyone done this to their car? I have only had my car a few months now and I am starting to think I should have got a Jeep instead

I was also thinking about one day towing a boat. The axle and 5.0 are sure strong enough.

Thumbs up Trailer hitch

Put hitch on my 2012 so I could move my Harley from Las Vegas to Eastern Washington. Towed great at any speed.

I found this on google! I guess it's called a seasucker bike rack? It's exactly what the op needs. I need something for a dirt bike though

The rack is from 1upusa 1UPUSA.com :: Quik Rack Black

It fits fine on 2012 GT stock mufflers etc. I used a hidden hitch for my 2012. Nice part it comes off in 30 seconds and most folks never even see the hitch when not used. The Rack is not cheap, but a lot cheaper that a new paint job. Funny my MTB is almost the same color as my GT..

If this can be hauled by a Mustang, then a bike rack is a walk in the park:
