How about a hidden reciever hitch behind the license plate. Get an old Oldsmobile/Caddy license plate mount on spring hinges so it flips up to reveal the hitch.
That's the setup on mine, built by AJ at bentup.com, now out of businness unfortunately.

It works great. On mine the license plate assembly (the old spring mounts have a steel plate the license mounts to), rests atop the ball when the ball is inserted. So of course you can't drive with just the ball in and no trailer as the plate would not be visible.

If any pics would help let me know.

Only other regret on mine is not getting some 2.5" holes with expanded sheet covering for two 50W backup lights. I've been meaning to get around to it forever now.

Also, don't forget the license plate light. Get yerself pulled over without it.
