      What's included in each Mercedes hitch package?

      Stealth Hitches offers a rack only package, a towing package, and a combination tow and rack package.  The same cross beam and vertical latching mechanism are used on all packages.

      The Rack Package uses a detachable rack receiver (2" and 1 1/4" square tube) 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 Tow 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 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.

      Great aftermarket hitch for AMG

      After searching several months for an aftermarket hitch for my Mercedes-AMG GLC63, I finally came across Stealth Hitches. I emailed and called to discuss my needs, and Steve (CEO) called back same day to verify fitment for my car. Talk about great customer service! Based on this, I placed the order and it was delivered, and installed by a recommended installer (Mann’s in Bellevue, WA) who was also terrific. I was concerned about messing up my expensive new car, but the install was very well done and now I have a custom hitch which works perfectly on my GLC. I could not happier with the service, order process, and installation. The hitch itself is SOLID, and the ability to detach it from the car is very slick. I highly recommend Stealth Hitches!

      Stealth Hitch on 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC300

      Stealth Hitches company was very helpful in selecting the correct parts for my vehicle, with any questions I had and with help resolving concerns. The parts arrived VERY well packaged and are superb quality. The instructions for installation could use improvement but I was able to figure it out. If you are not good in the workshop, this one might be better to leave for an experienced shop to install for you. Overall, very pleased. Thank You Steve . . .

      Highest end hitch but at the price of the eyesores.

      I purchased a new Mercedes, I couldn't imagine strapping a xmas tree to the top or hauling stuff to recycling. I knew I needed a hitch to use a cargo carrier or pull a trailer but also couldn’t imagine putting a big eyesore of a hitch on the back of this high end sports car. I found the Stealth hitch online and took a chance with my $70,000 baby. The Mercedes dealer said they would put it on because it instals exactly like the Mercedes factory eyesore. Everything went perfect and when I am not hauling, the esthetics of my car are the way the designer intended. Side benefits are; no hitting your shins on the hitch receiver when your loading items and because the hitch receiver doesn’t stay in permanently, it doesn’t rust to the point you can’t even slide something in it. The price is similar, even if I had a Ford truck I would want this hitch.

      Great hitch

      Love that the hitch is hidden from view when not in use. Hitch is of very high quality and was shipped quickly. I've received other hitches in the past that were bent and scratched due to the weight and poor packaging. This hitch was packaged very well and arrived in perfect condition. My only complaint is that the installation instructions (included) did not accurately reflect the fasteners on my Mercedes GLC300 so I had to figure out how to remove the bumper on my own. I assume that there were some changes from a prior model year which were not reflected in the instructions, Stealth Hitch is otherwise an excellent product which I would highly recommend.
