Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2016 Mercedes Sprinter 3500 Dually


The info page for 75549 indicates Hitch will not fit on dually models, but the vehicle in the 2016 Sprinter 3500 video is clearly a dual back wheel model. So: 1 Why does this not fit on the dually model as in the video? 2 What product is available if not this one for a dually model of the 2016 Mercedes Benz Sprinter 3500 144inch wb?


Expert Reply:

I did some checking and the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75549 does indeed fit the dually model of the 2016 Mercedes Sprinter 3500.

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 a trailer wiring harness you can use # 118649 to add a 4-Way flat connector to the rear of the vehicle. I have linked a video showing how it installs.
