I need a trailer hitch for my 2017 Mercedes Benz Sprinter 2500 that has the step bumper and the 170 wheelbase.

For your 2017 Mercedes Benz Sprinter 2500 with a step bumper and a 170 inch wheelbase the trailer hitch I would recommend is the Curt hitch # 13358 which is a confirmed fit. I like this hitch because it's made in the USA, has great towing capacities at 5,000 lb towing capacity and 500 lb tongue weight, and is priced great.

For trailer wiring we have the Tekonsha kit part # 118649 which is our most reliable trailer wiring option we have for your vehicle too.

If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in 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 include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
