Model S Trailer Hitch

Not advised, the ones that were installed for bike racks or other and never towing, caused real problems with rusting of the hitch and galvanic corrosion to the car. I think its also a warranty void kinda issue also you may want to drop the idea altogether. Sorry as I want to carry a bike or two sometimes outside the car myself.

2012-2019 Tesla Model S EcoHitch Stealth

I just had this one installed on my 2017 S 75D. (I’m in Ottawa so the installer probably doesn’t help you much).

It is true that the early ones did have some issues with galvanic corrosion, but they’ve taken precautions to prevent that with later iterations of the hitch and installation guidelines.
Yes towing isn’t recommend, but it’s fine for a bike rack or utility rack.
