Will Installation of a Trailer Hitch Interfere with Parking Sensors on 2016 Mercedes Sprinter 2500


Helle there, Hope you can help - do you know if the hitch effects the factory parking sensors? THANK YOU!

We have not heard of any issues with the rear sensors on a 2016 Mercedes Sprinter using Curt trailer hitch # 13358. We have installed this hitch on several similar vans and have not had any problems so you will be good to go!

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 to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

And for trailer wiring you can use # 118649 to add a 4-Way flat trailer connector to the rear of the vehicle.
