      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 GLE/GLS SUV Conversion Package.

      The Mercedes GLE SUV 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 GLE SUV 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. 

      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.

      So glad I found Stealth Hitch

      I was having trouble finding a hitch for my GLE. I ordered the hitch on line and shipping was super fast. Installation was flawless. I can now haul my bike.

      So far so good

      I had the product professionally installed and it went smoothly. Attaching the receiver works great and my bike rake attaches perfectly. Just need to get a trailer to test, but I really like the quality of the hitch.
