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

by:

Stout hitch that matches the quality of the factory unit. My van came with a factory hitch which I sold when I installed an aluminess bumper. After realizing the massive flaws with the aluminess bumper I tried to find another factory hitch for a decent price. Failing I bought this. Very impressed with this hitch. My bikes bounce less on this hitch than the factory unit. The 600lb tongue probably has something to do with it either way a great alternate to a very expensive Mercedes’ unit. S always etrailer is a great outfit.




by:

Very solid hitch, well made. It took me about 3 hours to install. Requires drilling two holes on the underside of the vehicle frame, the using a wire to fish the bolts into the frame of the vehicle. I could not accomplish the install until I modified the provided tool by adding an additional two foot section of bailing wire to the provided tool. I had some difficulty with understanding the provided instructions. The instructions could be a little more user friendly. Overall, I am very pleased with the this hitch and how it is installed on the vehicle.

this is what I wanted my installation

Greta fit. Easy Install. Quick shipping. Did exactly what I needed it to. Seems well manufactured. Company was very responsive.

Hitch was perfect when it arrived. All bolted up and ready to go! Everything I needed was in the box. This is my 3rd etrailer hitch and they all mounted 'without a hitch'!!




by:
2019 Ram 2500

The product is solid, like every other hitch I've got from etrailer.com.
It was easy to install on my 2019 Sprinter van 2500. The instructions were straight forward and it didn't take a very long time to install the hitch (Maybe 20min total)
I really like the way it seats underneath the bumper




by:

Service was great and prompt on letting me know the status of order! I customize sprinters and my service and communication with customers is very important! Thank you for the great service!!




by:
2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500

Super easy install and perfect fit for my 2019 Sprinter 2500. Given that my intended use for the hitch was to attach a bike rack or additional storage, versus towing, I did not install the additional bolts that require drilling. Looks great, low profile




by:

Product worked as described and at a good price. Shipped and arrived quickly. The box was beat up and hitch was coming out of it when it arrived. This meant that the hitch was scuffed, chipped, and a bit beat up when I got it, which was disappointing.


Comments
I apologize about the scuffed hitch. Next time something is damaged in shipping please contact etrailer.com within the return policy timeframe of 60 days. You will want to cover the scratches with anti-corrosive spray paint to keep rust at bay.

The installation instructions don't exactly work for a 2021 Sprinter 2500. The access hole to fish the vertical hardware through doesn't exist as the instructions point out. There is a smaller hole on the side of the rail, but it would have to be made larger to fit the bolt head through. Even if it was made larger I wasn't convinced the plate would fit through, given how long it is, and I didn't want to add another hole to the bottom of the rail. Instead I opted to not install the vertical hardware, though I'm not sure what impact that has on the rating of the receiver. I don't plan on towing anything too heavy, but if you are, I can't recommend this receiver for this van.

Curt Hitch was self installed in about an hour. Did not run into any difficultly. I used a small car jack to help me lift up the hitch into place so that I can push the bolts through the holes. All-in-all a pretty smooth process. The hitch fit 2015 sprinter without factory rear step very well and looked good.

My van had most of the holes pre-drilled.

it installed in under an hour with the help of the buddy.

by:
2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500

The product was shipped in a really heavy duty box but still came pretty banged up. The instructions were good but this was supposed to be a bolt-in product. One of the holes needs to be drilled but since the entire frame is boxed I can't get the hardware through the other side.


Comments
For your 2019 M-B Sprinter 2500, the bolt hole for the underside attachment point will need to be drilled. There should be a larger access hole into the box frame further up the frame. The hardware will then be fishwired through the larger access hole into the bolt hole to attach the hitch. I have linked the installation instructions for you.

2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Installed on a 2019 Sprinter 4x4 for approximately a year, then removed it to install an Aluminess bumper/receiver/storage box/spare tire kit. There is a lot to like about this Curt receiver. The fit and finish are up to Curt's usual standards, and I like how the Curt receiver required drilling two vertical holes in the subframe to provide additional points of contact for the hitch receiver. I would trust the Curt receiver more than the Aluminess bumper/receiver/etc when towing a trailer with a weight-distribution hitch. However, because we need external storage and a second spare tire more than we need the ultimate Class III receiver, I removed the Curt. This is not a criticism of the Curt, and I don't regret the purchase.

Fit perfectly and was easy to install

First time buyer. Omg how great of a company. Everything u need and then some. Free shipping. And truth be told I had the pleasure of speaking with Terri N when I went to check out. 5 minutes into the phone call,I was thinking to myself what a wonderful person she is. Your company should feel very greatful to have someone like her working for u. I can not began to say it was the best buying experience I have had in a long time. Once again I want to say what a great place and Terri N what a wonderful person. Thank u again

Its a hitch. Works great.

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

For '09 Sprinter 3500. Good product, good fit. Less prone to rust than other brands.
Includes Grade 8 bolts. With other brands, I have had to purchase grade 8 bolts, because only grade 5 were included.
I only pull fairly light trailers. I wouldn't anticipate any problems with any size trailer.
A tab on the drivers side for the lights plug would be helpful. Self tapping screws in the side worked fine though.
If thread lock tape or liquid was included, that would be nice.
Thanks for providing a quality product and a reasonable price and super fast shipping.
etrailer is always great to do business with.
Thanks,
Keith

2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Fits good. wish the hitch had the extra bolt hole to match my 2019 sprinter van frame. I drilled the extra hole on each side of the hitch and added a fourth bolt, to match the 4 holes on the frame.




by:

Packaging was a little beat up but was on time and exactly what I ordered




by:
2008 Dodge Sprinter

the Curt hitch for my Sprinter 2500, 144WB is great. It bolts right on and the only questionable part is drilling into the frame with ? drill bit. That a pretty big drill bit and the website doesn't tell you the drill size needed, but does mention "drilling required". Other than that all went smoothly. All hardware provided and the hitch was packaged very well. Hard to beat etrailer for quick and free shipping !

2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500

product is well made and fits as instructions state




by:
2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Fit and finish we’re great as well as customer service. It fit my 2019 mb sprinter passenger van 140” 4x4 quite well. I don’t know what the “doesn’t fit passenger van” is all about. I think I’m happier that I didn’t go with the draw tight. I like the design. Wear safety glasses, I got metal in my eye!

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 2012 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13388 is a confirmed fit for your 2012 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. The reason the hitch does not fit models with 30-3/8" frame, measured outside to outside of frame is because the normal frame on the Sprinter is wider. To confirm the fit on your Sprinter, you can measure the 35-1/2 inches from the frame hole center to center where this hitch mounts. I've attached a photo to assist.

    As long as your 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 with the 144 inch wheelbase is equipped with the standard bumper (not the step bumper) the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch # C13388 that you referenced will fit and work perfectly. This Class III hitch features a 6,000 pound towing weight capacity and a 600 pound tongue weight limit. Please note that during installation you will need to drill some holes into the bottom of the Sprinter's frame. I have attached the complete installation instructions...

    Yes we do have a hitch that fits your vehicle. You would want the Curt hitch part # C13388 which is confirmed as a fit for your 2015 Mercedes Benz Sprinter 170 inch wheelbase without step bumper.

  • Why is There Different Hitch Fits for 2015 Mercedes Benz Based on Rear Step Bumper
    The mounting brackets of the hitches are totally different as the step bumper changes how the vehicle is setup. For your 2015 Mercedes Sprinter that has the 170 inch wheelbase and no step bumper the correct Curt hitch is the part # C13388. If instead you had the step bumper you instead would want the part # 13358.

    I'd go with the Curt hitch part # C13388 for your 2011 Mercedes 3500 Sprinter with a standard bumper since it has the higher capacity like you mentioned. For a swinging enclosed hitch carrier we have the Rola part # 59109 which would work well. I attached a review video for this carrier for you to check out too.

    There isn't going to be any noticeable difference in the fit between the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75549 and Curt Trailer Hitch # C13388 that fit your 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 with a 170 inch wheelbase and standard bumper. The reason for that is both hitches install in the exact same spot on the frame, and both will be about flush with the bumper on your Sprinter.

    We haven't had the chance to install both the Curt # C13388 and Draw-Tite # 75549 trailer hitches on the Mercedes Sprinter to do a comparison, however I did go out to our warehouse to take a measurement on each to determine which will sit higher off the ground when mounted. For each hitch I measured from the center of the top mounting hole to the lowest point. On the Curt hitch this measurement was 11" and on the Draw-Tite it was 12-1/4", meaning the Curt # C13388 is definitely the best...

  • Do Trailer Hitches Install Inside Trailer Frame for 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500
    Both the Draw-Tite # 75549 and Curt # C13388 trailer hitches mount to the inside of the frame so they won't be a problem for your 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 with the standard bumper. I kind of like the look of the Curt better to I recommend going that route over the Draw-Tite, plus we have found that the Curt hitches tend to have better welds and a thicker powder coat so they are a little more durable.

The part # C13388 fits the versions of the vehicle without the factory step bumper. These hitches have plenty of towing capacity and come with limited lifetime warranties so we recommend them highly.

The Curt Hitch # 13358 that you referenced would not work for you because it is designed for vehicles with step bumpers and you do not have one. For wiring I would recommend you get a Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring # 118650. I attached installation instructions and an installation video for this product for you to check out also.
