If you wanted to get a hitch, you can get this one # 76015 which will work with any 2 inch bike rack like the NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B which also comes in a two bike version # BA22B. If you wanted to be able to keep your bikes on and not have to take them off to get to the back of your Metris we have a swing away system # PVP20B that will allow you to swing your bikes away so you can open your rear barn doors while leaving everything attached. This thing is AWESOME! It really makes having a hitch bike rack so much better by not limiting your car at all.

One thing to note, if you don't know if you want the 4 bike or 2 bike version, you can add onto the 2 bike version to make it a 3 bike # KU97FR or a 4 bike # BA02B configuration.

I've used both of these products with each other and I really think it will look really good on the back of your 2017 Mercedes-Benz Metris. You will be VERY pleased with this setup! I've included some videos of me using these together so you can see how it works!

If you wanted something that will take more time to set up, disable your barn doors but cost a fair amount less, you can get this trunk mounted bike rack # SA803. I dislike these as they will cause some ware on your paint unlike a hitch bike rack, but it is an option for you. I just wouldn't put it on my van if I had one.
