    Hello,

    I am sure this has been asked/answered several times but... can't find.

    Has anyone found a solution to install a european trailer hitch system on its Tesla.
    I would like to carry my Thule Bike system on a "Trailer Ball" (Boule de Remorque).

    I know in the US they have the Ecohitch system but the connection part (square opening) seems different than the European one (ball).
    Also, can you recommend a specialist for mounting the system.

    Thanks a lot for your help,

    David, Wavre, Belgium.

    It has been discussed before, but the basic conclusion is that a trailer hitch is not conform the specifications (European COC), nor is it legal to retrofit.
    So this potentially gives problems at different levels: Tesla warranty, technical approval, insurance, ...

    A quick search for "trekhaak" will give you several topics (in Dutch).
