      What's included in each Mercedes hitch package?

      Stealth Hitches offers a rack only package and a combo package with tow and rack options. The same cross beam and vertical latch block are used on all packages so if you need to upgrade to tow later you can with the Mercedes E-Class Sedan (W212) Conversion Package.

      The Mercedes E-Class Sedan (W212) hitch Rack Package comes with standard 2" detachable rack receiver that accepts current versions of bike racks, ski racks, cargo platforms, and other square tube accessories.  A wiring harness is not required if rack connections are the customers only application.

      The Mercedes E-Class Sedan (W212) Combo Hitch Package uses a detachable ball mount that operates differently than a typical square tube receiver hitch. When inserted into the stainless-steel latch block, a tight connection is created to the vehicle frame, eliminating the jerking and banging associated with square tube receiver type hitches during starts and stops.  This solid connection creates less wear and tear on the vehicle transmission and is a more pleasurable ride for the passengers.  The tight connection also allows our hitch to pass the more stringent European test requirements which carries a higher towing rating than the US rating.  Our hitches conform to both US (SAE) and European (EU) test requirements.  

      Stealth Wiring Harness

      Our "Stealth" wiring harness and controller is specifically designed to monitor and duplicate the tail light functions.  Drawing current from the tail light circuits can cause vehicle faults, especially on European vehicles.  Our controller draws current directly from the battery to eliminate this issue. For vehicles with numerous trailer lights, Stealth harnesses are designed to increase the current capacity from the typical 5-amp solid state limitation to a full 20 amps.

      Quality Product - instructions a tad off

      I ordered this during a difficult time thanks to the pandemic, so I was patient when the shipping date passed from what was estimated but 5 weeks was a long wait! The product itself is amazing. I'm extremely pleased so far with the quality of materials used and the overall design. There is nothing I wanted less than to see a receiver sticking out of the back of such a sporty car and this is exactly what I had hoped for.

      Great Hitch, Unprepared Wiring

      This was a pretty good experience. I love this hitch, it was easy to install myself apart from the wiring and it's solid. Towed 2500 pounds form Houston to DC without so much as a complaint form the car, seems even to be able to handle more. I will never rent a truck again! The wiring kit that came with the hitch was wrong however because it assumed I had a battery in the back, which I did not, so I had to do some hackery to get it working. Hopefully Steve resolves this problem for future buyers but check with him if you have a battery in the front like I did.

      Fantastic product and great service

      The hitch is completely invisible when not installed on my Mercedes wagon. Plugging in the receiver is very quick and easy. I can have bikes on the car in just a few minutes. I had the hitch installed at the Stealth Hitches headquarters outside of Atlanta and the service there was excellent as well. Steve gave me a short demo of the product and I was on my way.
