Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (16 Customer Reviews)

This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


It is a good quality hitch and I am happy to have it. They had the item when everyone else was out of stock. The main negatives I had were the lack of any information being emailed to me when the item was not shipped by the time it was supposed to. I had to call them to find out they were swamped due to shipping back ups due to Covid and it would be sent out in another week or so. It arrived about 2 weeks later than originally stated when I purchased it. Other than the lack of communication, all is good.

It has done well for me. As mentioned in other reviews it does sit low to the ground and does, very rarely, bottom out. This is more a reflection on the low riding nature of the vehicle than a problem with the hitch.

2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris

This hitch has the quality that I expected and it arrived earlier than promised. However I do have a few comments that may make installation easier of others. First, the instructions indicate that "lowering the exhaust may make installation easier", I saw no way that this hitch could be installed without dropping the exhaust and I recommend the instructions state that, not a big deal but it would have saved me a little effort if I had know that from the start. Second the inner dimension of the hitch was too narrow by about 1/2" to 3/4" to clear the frame of the van and I had to bend the hitch using a scissors jack and a 4x4 to get it to fit. In the end I was successful getting it installed but only because I'm persistent, this process added about an hour to the install time.

2019 Mercedes-Benz Metris

Great fit and finish. Easy installation. The only problem is how low to the ground it hangs, scraping the driveway upon entering.

2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris

I bought tow hitch for Metris Cargo van and I've installed it, but it looks very bad, is too low, you're afraid to upload something that you fear that Hitch car touches the ground. It is bad. It would be better if Hitch will be under the bumper would look more beautiful and safe, so I do not recommend anyone to Hitch.

Thank you for your review, Sergiu. I have forwarded your concerns to our customer service department, who should be in touch as soon as possible

Excellent quality.


Within 20 minutes of the hitch arriving at my warehouse, it was installed. Lined up perfectly, and no missing pieces. Very well made. Would gladly order again if I purchase another similar fleet vehicle.

Be sure to slip the rubber hanger off for the tailpipe before installing. Theres also a tie-down hanger that needs to be removed and discarded before installing the hitch. This was clearly detailed in the instructions, but, I'm a man and therefore threw the instructions aside before installing. Also, you will need the metric sizes to remove the existing tie-down, but will require a 3/4" socket and box wrench for the installation. A fine product, wrapped and shipped with enough protection to avoid transit damage.


Quality components, great fit, easy install. Major issue with the muffler rattling against heat shield. Any ideas for a solution? Is the heat shield necessary?

Thank you for your review. The Mercedes-Benz Metris that we installed the Curt Trailer Hitch part C13276 on did not have a heat shield near the install area. However, if your Metris does have a heat shield it can be trimmed with a Dremel tool so it doesnt touch the hitch. They are not always necessary and can be removed because the metal hitch will dissipate heat however it is better to just trim if you can. If you are referring to the exhaust that is rattling I have linked a helpful article for your reference.

Hitch was easy to install. Everything fit. Solid/strong hitch. Only issue is hitch is so low that hits some speed bumps... have to remember to go slow.


I’m very happy with the product and did not have any problem with installing Perfect fit for my van Kim was very helpful and answer all my questions I would recommend to my friends and will use them again Thank you again

2017 Mercedes-Benz Metris

Hitch was as described and arrived promptly. I had to widen the plates 1/4 inch to get around the frame, but that was no issue.


Great product, fit exactly, will definitely be purchasing from etrailer in the future


Great hitch. Fast shipping!


well made

  • What is Ground Clearance of Trailer Hitch that Fits 2019 Mercedes Benz Metris
    From the bottom of the Curt hitch part # C13276 down to the ground on your 2019 Mercedes Benz Metris will measure right at 10 inches. I attached a picture that shows that it fits up to the bottom of the rear bumper about as tightly as it could. I also attached an install video link with more info as well. There isn't an option with more clearance available.

  • Can the Curt Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris be Used with Weight Distribution
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13276 for your 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris is rated for use with a weight distribution system so although I do not recommend an Andersen Weight Distribution System, you can use one. In my opinion and several others, the best weight distribution system on the market is the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System. This system has four point sway control which is pretty much unrivaled in terms of performance. It can also be used in reverse so long as the...

  • Trailer Hitch Fitment for 2008 Mercedes-Benz Viano Marco Polo
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13276 is designed for a 2016 - 2023 Mercedes-Benz Metris. Since your 2008 Viano Marco Polo is a bit older this hitch won't fit and our best solution is a universal-type hitch like the Stromberg Carlson Adjustable Accessory Hitch Receiver # SC45MR which is a bolt-on or weld-on installation and will fit a frame width range of 49-1/2" - 76-1/2". Unfortunately there are no custom fit hitches for your vehicle so a universal application is your best bet.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver And Enclosed Cargo Carrier For 2018 Mercedes Benz GL450
    I do have a trailer hitch receiver for your 2018 Mercedes Benz GL450, but the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13276 is not a confirmed fit for your vehicle. You will instead want to go with Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13190 which will work for your vehicle as long as it does not have the Active Curve System. This receiver offers a very simple bolt-on installation process and requires no drilling or welding, making it a perfect...

  • Recommended Hitch and Trailer Wiring Harness for 2020 Mercedes Metris Cargo Van
    We don't offer a plug and play wiring harness for your 2020 Metris, but we do offer a circuit-protected trailer wiring harness to provide a 4-pole trailer connector that would be pretty easy to install that wouldn't require any cutting or splicing. I'd recommend the Tekonsha ZCI, part # 119250KIT that would install as shown in the linked video. The ZCI uses sensors that clamp around the taillight harness wires that can read the current going through the wires. For a hitch, I'd recommend...

  • Trailer Wiring Options for a 2018 Mercedes-Benz Metris
    The Tekonsha Kit # 119190KIT is a universal wiring harness which is why it is confirmed to fit your 2018 Mercedes-Benz Metris. There haven't been any custom wiring harnesses for a Mercedes-Benz Metris yet but the closest thing you can get to that is the ZCI Kit # 119250KIT (also from Tekonsha) which uses special splices that don't actually cut your wiring like the quick splices do with the 119190 kit that you referenced. We don't carry the 119191-21 kit you referenced but from what I could...

  • What Is Needed To Pull A Trailer With Electric Brakes Using A 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris?
    In order to tow a 4000lb trailer with your 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris, you first need a hitch. I would go with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Class III - 2" # C13276. This is the highest weight capacity hitch we offer and has a max tongue weight of 900lbs and max towing capacity of 6000lbs. In order to get a 7-Way Plug-in on your Metris, you first need to install a 4 Pin trailer wiring kit if your vehicle does not already have one. I recommend going with the ZCI 4-Pole Flat Trailer...
