Just did it today. It was pretty easy, I didn’t have any issues like I saw on a few YouTube videos. Overall took about 2.5 hours for me to install.

OP: Have you found a solution for the hitch cover? I really don’t like the one included in the EcoHitch. I wonder how Tesla does it for their OEM one.

I just broke a bunch of tabs off so it's easier to take on and off.

My Model Y is currently at my SC and getting the official retro-fit package installed. It was $1200 plus tax.

Let us know if Trailer mode is unlocked as part of the install. I like the idea of the factory hitch, but $900 more than the eco hitch would cost me to install is a bit steep just to use with a bike rack.

Thus far, Tesla is scheduling me for mobile install of the tow package...yeah, the $1200 is a little more than factory cost of $1000, so I'm going to mention that to them to see if they will budge....lol....
