Can Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75549 be Used as a Step on a 2017 Mercedes Sprinter 2500


Does the hitch protrude enough to allow one to use it as a step to help get up into the rear door? Or is there a gap between the hitch and bumper to allow one to step on it?


Expert Reply:

The receiver on Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75549 does stick out past the bumper a few inches on the 2017 Mercedes Sprinter 2500. Take a look at the picture I have included for an example.

There isn't a whole lot of space and no grip on the metal receiver so I recommend a hitch step such as # BBS-1102 or, if you will be towing, the Tow & Go Hitch Step for Ball Mounts # RP7060200 as much safer alternatives. I have linked videos on all 3 products for you.
