Hey 2TNE, I'm getting the EcoHitch Stealth for our Model 3 as well, but am having trouble finding a shop in San Diego to do the install. Who did you ultimately end up using? Any feedback on the hitch or the cargo carrier you are using? Thanks in advance!
I live in Santa Barbara, and had our local Tesla-certified body shop, Precision Auto Body, install it. I picked up a Küat Sherpa bike carrier to save weight (~15 lbs compared to a Thule T2). I also checked with Rack Attack in Santa Monica. Cost was about the same as the local body shop (~$500).

As far as feedback goes, the Stealth hitch receiver and the Küat rack work really well. The downsides are that the range takes a sizable hit when doing freeway speeds. With the 3 being so low, and the rack sticking so far out the back end, it's really easy to drag the rack coming out of driveways with any sort of slope.

Very Impressive. Can you tell me whether you can open the truck without lowering the 1up? I've been considering the 1up since my son has one and now it turns out that it is one of the few racks available because of the pandemic-caused run on bike gear. Thanks in advance.
Once the bikes are on, the trunk is shut. No access to it.
