      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 GLA 4Matic (X156) Conversion Package.

      The Mercedes GLA 4Matic (X156) 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 GLA 4Matic (X156) Combo Hitch Package uses a detachable ball mount that operates differently than a typical square tube receiver hitch. When inserted into the stainless-steel receiver block, a tight connection is created to the vehicle frame, eliminating the jerking and banging associated with square tube receivers 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 carry 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.

        Mercedes GLA 250

        Hitch is great - you can really see anything and day to day put on and take off is easy. Instructions could be better. Certified/promoted installation locations are scarce still - would have loved to have a place nearer to have it done. Many places don’t know or don’t want to install the hitch with references to liability which I can’t really understand. They also said they would need 4+ for the work which would have cost around 500$ installation fee only. The flat fee of $250 at the certified location was definitely a peace of mind choice but again too few around - hope the network grows soon! Otherwise great product! It would be five stars if installation would be more conveniently available.
