Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.

Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.

In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario. Technical Support

At we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch.

2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

Thanks for sending the missing parts

are pictures of my finish project. The video presentation on etrailer website helped tremendously with one small difference, my car being the AMG model, the removal of the bumper was slightly different than the standard GLC in the video. Nonetheless, the video instruction provided made the task less stressful.

Bottom line, the hitch work, looks beautiful...and I completed the task all by myself.

Great, no issue. If there is anything to change it would be to make it more concealed but I dont know how that could be done without having an opening in the bumper. It push up on the bumper a little exposing the exhaust pan but I just paint it matted black so it blend in. The hitch looks great and work fine. I installed it all by myself. Yea

Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2"
Item # 76082
The hitch seems sturdy and strong, I had it installed by a collision expert. Great product.

Working out great, no problems.
Anny - 04/04/2020


Installation was not bad, took me about 3 hours to install the trailer hitch receiver without cutting the heatshield. That is the 1st reasons why I choose Draw-Tite, the 2nd is you can install a J-pin but for some reason my receiver did not have that extra hole for a J-pin, I do not know if the manufacturer forgot to drill a secondary hole.

Draw-tite is discontinuing all of the J-pin style hitch receivers. etrailer is in the process of update all of our Draw-tite photos, videos, and content.

I really appreciate the video posted on etrailer website as it was great help in the installation process. The instruction provided was also very helpful and spot on. I was able to install in just a few hours. The hitch item 76082 is a well made product and fitment is perfect. This is a 5th hitch that I have bought from etrailer and will continue to do so in the future. Thank you.

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

Great price for this very specific piece fitting my 2017 GLC300. Took it to some Mercedes mechanics who hadn’t attached one of these before. Took them 2.5 hours, but it’s done and looks great! Can’t wait to try it out!

This was a must have for this type of vehicle. I really believe this should be standard when purchased. This hitch has worked for well for both a 20 cubic ft cargo carrier and a 2-bike carrier. Very solid and has not disappointed.

2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

Perfect fit!
and great installation
step by step??


As always… best price, ontime delivery…. and the best installation instructions!

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC

Good price, but the item was filthy dirty and looked like it sat on a shelf in a dusty warehouse for years. Someone should have at least wiped it off before boxing it up.

2019 BMW 3 Series

Dismantling the GLCs rear bumper is quite tedious, but the instructions and video provided are perfect for walking you through it! I highly recommend that you get a set of trim removal tools to make your life easier!

2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

Product works well, but fit could be better around bumper cover and receiver.

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

I have been searching for a month to find a hitch that would mate with my 2017 Mercedes GLC 300. Finally heard about ETrailer. I called and was connected to Troy who was incredibly helpful. He took me thru the a number of questions concerning the weight etc that I would be towing and recommended a unit that was a little less in capacity as the heavier duty unit was not going to be worth the extra cost. He then followed up immediately with an email confirming pricing and shipping information. The unit arrived 5 days later. GREAT SERVICE,KNOWLEDGE AND FOLLOW UP. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!

It works very well.
Bill A - 03/11/2018


Installed on 2019 GLC 350. Functions perfectly and looks great. This is not a DIY project for most. Installation by my mechanic shop took several hours, and apparently removal and replacement of rear bumper trim, fascia, quarter panels etc. End result is great. Finding the right hitch for your particular make, model and year vehicle was easy with this vendor.


Package got delivered on time. Will post more reviews once I use the product.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC

Received order quickly. No installation instructions with hitch receiver. Watch the video several times and install should be no problem. Don't rush it. Take your time. Install is really simple but must be done one step at a time. A set of drive on ramps really helps.


Customer service was superb


I received the hitch and installed it on my MB GLC300 4Matic today. It fit the vehicle frame mounts fine, but I had to notch the fascia panel slightly at the receiver bracket to get the bottom retainer screws back into the bumper cover, a slight mod that the video didn’t show or talk about.

The video installation instructions were outstanding. As this install is quite complicated, I’m not sure I could have done it without the video tips.

Will tackle the wiring kit install tomorrow.

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

Perfect combo of performance and price. Going to be used mostly to attach Bike carriers.

Quick shipping and very informative service from!


Easy to put on and works as it should! Shipping was faster than expected. Very happy with the receiver.


This fit my vehicle perfectly and is awesome! I love it! The instructions and video were a huge help! Thanks so much for all of your time and help with the perfect hitch!


WOW, it's here and I can't get to the installation until Monday. I just had to open the box, yup everything was there and all new and shiny. Bonus, it even had a hitch, hole plug! Way to go.


Excellent fit


Awesome response to my order and even better arrival time especially during these trying times! Would recommend you always! Thanks from a happy customer


The right hitch and delivered quickly.


No issues!

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 to Use with 2 Inch Bike Rack
    For your 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch # 76082. This is because unlike with the Curt model that is also available for your vehicle, Draw-Tite does not require that an additional stabilizing strap be used for non-trailer loads like a bike rack. Since this is exactly what you are needing the hitch for and using the strap can be a bit of a pain, the Draw-Tite is definitely the better option. Otherwise both hitches will basically have...

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch for 2019 Mercedes Benz GLC 300 Affect Hands Free Lift Gate Performance
    We have spoken with our tech contacts at Draw-Tite regarding the Max-Frame Trailer Hitch # 76082 that is confirmed to fit your 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC300. They stated that the tailgate sensors on the vehicle will still work great with the hitch installed. You will simply need to place your foot on either side of the center of the hitch so the sensors can pick up your movement.

  • Hitch For Carrying Bike Rack with 2019 Mercedes 300GLC
    For your 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 the Draw Tite hitch part # 76082 is the best option for carrying a bike rack. Unlike the Curt it does not require the use of a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack so it's the winner. Any garage or mechanic in your area with a good reputation will be the best choice for installing the hitch. Hitch installs are pretty basic for qualified mechanics so this wouldn't be difficult for them to pull off. I attached an install...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class to Use with Kuat Bike Rack
    For your 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch # 76082. This Class III hitch is confirmed to fit your vehicle and will use existing holes in the vehicle frame for a no-drill installation. The 2 inch hitch receiver will work great for your existing Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack and will provide plenty of capacity for it and the loaded bikes. I recommend this over the Curt alternative that is also confirmed to fit your vehicle because unlike Curt,...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Mercedes GLC300 and Tips for Finding Installer
    Trailer hitch installs are pretty basic for qualified mechanics. What we recommend people do is find a local garage with a good reputation to install the hitch. Otherwise we do not have a specific recommendation for you area. The Draw Tite hitch part # 76082 that you referenced is the best hitch option we have for your 2017 Mercedes GLC300 so it would be our recommendation. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Does Install of Trailer Hitch on 2018 Mercedes GLC300 Affect Parking Assist
    If you install a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 76082 on your 2018 Mercedes GLC300 it's not going to interfere with your parking assist feature as long as you don't have a bike rack installed in the hitch. Speaking of bike racks, one of the reasons I recommend this hitch for your vehicle is because when carrying a bike rack this hitch does not require the use of a stabilizer strap like the Curt equivalent does.

  • Trailer Hitch Weight on a 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC300

Attached is an installation video of this hitch being installed on a 2018 MB GLC-Class that you can check out. If you let me know what you plan on using the trailer hitch for I can make some recommendations for you!

    With a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 76082 installed on your 2017 Mercedes GLC300 if you need a 6 inch rise you can take a ball mount and flip it upside down. For example we have the Curt ball mount part # C45090 which when upside down gives 6 inches of rise.

  • Will the Thule T2 Pro XT Fit on the Draw-Tite Hitch # 76082 on a 2021 Mercedes GLC SUV?
    For a 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC (SUV - excluding AMG 64), we do not know the precise measurement of the hitch distance with the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC (excluding AMC 63) to your face of the rear bumper. However, we do know the distance from the center of the pinhole to the face of the bumper from some recent models that will give us a pretty good estimate. Thule T2 pro XTR # TH83JV and the Thule T2 Pro XT should fit on the Draw-Tite # 76082 because it has a 6-1/2 inch distance between the...

  • Which Hitch For A 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Is Most Hidden Curt Or Draw Tite
    With appearance being the key consideration, my recommendation is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13290 over the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76082. The great part about this hitch is you will not need to do any trimming or modifying of the rear fascia, keeping your GLC's original appeal. The receiver provides 1-1/2" more bumper clearance than the Draw-Tite as well. This helps keep the overall profile low at the rear of your vehicle which you can see from the installed...

  • Will Curt or Draw-Tite Hitch Be More Hidden on your 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300
    Both the Curt # C13290 and the Draw-Tite # 76082 Class III Trailer Hitches offer a sleek hidden-crosstube design, however the Curt # C13290 model is going to be recessed behind the bumper almost 2" more than the Draw-Tite model. This means the Curt hitch is your best option if you are simply looking for the most hidden unit available on your vehicle. With that in mind, I would also point out that in terms of practical use there can be such a thing as "too hidden", especially if you are...

  • Can 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 With 350 lb Tongue Weight Capacity Tow More Than That
    For your 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC300, you have to stay within the lowest-rated capacity to safely tow. Since your vehicle has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs you would not be able to tow a trailer with a 375 lb tongue weight, you have to stay under it or risk damaging your Mercedes. When you do find a trailer within the capacity of your Mercedes, to tow it I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76082. For the trailer hitch wiring harness I recommend the Upgraded...

If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop...

    Yes you would just need a hitch but for your 2016 Mercedes GLC300 I actually recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 76082. The reason is that if you went with the Curt hitch # C13290 you would be required to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using the hitch for a bike rack (or anything other than a trailer) per the Curt warranty requirements. Using the strap is a hassle and adds an extra expense. Draw-Tite does not have that requirement so you can use your 2 inch Thule bike rack without having...
