Super quick order processing and shipping. Item was marked shipped within a couple of hours of an order and arrived within estimated time given at the time of purchase . Instructions and Videos were helpful to install the hitch. Like the services and curt quality. Only minor thing was Packaging. It was bit torn down as parts were not secure properly.


Fit like a glove, no alterations. I can now pull my trailer and attach my hitch mounted bicycle rack. Much needed. Also thank you for your help in guiding me to the proper hitch for my vehicle.


Good product compare to oe hitch this trailer hitch is lower to the ground. Everything works no problem.

2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class

Easy install & looks good.


Installation was a breeze and is rock s olid.


Be confidence that etrailer understands your need. They knew better than the dealer, manufacturer, and installer in my situation. Easy to follow instruction in video and paper. Knowledgeable customer service reps, excellent delivery timing, and overall successful experience!

I did a hitch on a GL450. Noone else was reasonable or close in price, expertise, or communication. It was a good experience all around.


Fits perfect, the only Con , you reduce the height of the GLS to go over bumps or terrain, the hitch sits way lower the bumper

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450
    You're in luck! I just confirmed with Curt that as long as your 2019 Mercedes Benz GLS 450 does not have the Mercedes Active Curve System, then the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13190 is confirmed to fit. There is no drilling required to install this hitch, but heat shield and minor fascia trimming is required for a concealed look.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13190 is a confirmed fit for a 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450. Curt has not yet updated this hitch to fit the 2018 model due to lack of testing. However, according to my research the 2018 model was unchanged from the prior 2017 for the exception of redesigned wheels which will not affect the fit of this hitch. Therefore, the Curt hitch should still work well for you it has just not yet been tested as of May 2018. I have attached a photo of what the hitch...

  • Curt Class III Receiver Hitch Towing Capacity for 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS
    With any towing setup you are limited by the lowest rated component as the overall capacity as it would be what fails first. So your 2017 Mercedes Benz GLS 450 would be limited to whatever the owners manual states regardless of what hitch you have installed. So that begs the follow up question...why do we offer hitches rated for more than the vehicle? The answer to that is our manufacturers design a hitch to fit the vehicle and then do the best they can to make it as strong as possible...

  • Are Alterations Necessary to Install Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL450
    In order to install the Curt # C13190 some trimming will be required in addition to the bolt-on installation. A section of the heat shield will need to be trimmed that is approximately 11" x 6" and also the outboard tabs on each side of the vehicle will need to be removed. I have attached a picture from the instructions showing what needs to be trimmed as well as the instructions themselves. It is also worth noting that this hitch will not fit models that have the Active Curve system.

  • Why Is it Better to Have Trailer Wiring that Stores Inside 2015 Mercedes GL550
    Having the 4-way run out of the back hatch is actually the preferred method although it seems like it wouldn't be. Having the 4-way stored inside the cab of the keeps it protected from rain and moisture to prevent corrosion and keeps it protected from damage to the wiring or connector by rocks or debris that might be on the highway. You can run the wire through the vehicle if you wish but just keep in mind that this does take more time and you may end up needing additional wire because...

    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Item # C13190 is a perfect fit for your GLS Class Mercedes-Benz. This hitch has a 900 lb tongue weight, a 7500 lb towing capacity, 2" by 2" receiver tube opening so it will accommodate a lot of different hitch mounted accessories when not towing your trailer.

  • Trailer Hitch Needed for a 2013/2014 Mercedes-Benz GL450
    Although the VIN would help to determine the model year of your Mercedes-Benz GL450, in this case the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13190 fits both a 2013 and a 2014 model year so determining which model year you have doesn't matter for the trailer hitch. If you let me know what you will be using the trailer hitch for I can make additional recommendations if necessary.

This is a custom fit hitch receiver that is specifically designed for your Mercedes.

  • Can I Increase Tongue Weight of Vehicle With a Different Hitch
    I'll start out by saying that a trailer hitch does not determine your vehicle's tongue weight rating or towing capacity, these are determined by your vehicle and when it comes to adding components to the equation you're always going to be limited to the lowest rated component. If your vehicle has a tongue weight capacity of 600-lbs, but the hitch says 900-lbs- you're still only safe with putting 600-lbs of tongue weight on the vehicle. The best source of information on what your capacities...

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch Fit 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL450 With Driver Assist Package
    The driver assist package will not affect towing on your 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL450. The only thing that will affect the fit of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13190 on your GL450 is if it has the Active Curve System, which based on my research, the assist package does not include, though you'll want to verify this to make sure. So as long as you do not have the Active Curve System, you can install and use the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13190. Since you will be towing you will also...

  • Hitch and Wiring for 2017 Mercedes GLS 450
    The Curt hitch part # C13190 that you referenced is the correct hitch for your 2017 Mercedes GLS 450 and while it does not come with wiring the correct kit would be the part # 119250KIT which installs without requiring splicing wires. Install instructions link attached. Towing with the hitch and wiring I mentioned would not interfere with the active curve system either which works to keep the vehicle level through corners and bumps. If your vehicle had this feature there would be a dial...

  • Trailer Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Mercedes GL 450
    For your 2014 Mercedes GL450 that has a trailer hitch like the Curt part # C13190 installed I really like the Saris SuperClamp EX part # SA4025F. This is a lightweight platform rack (which is normally an unheard of combo). That means it'll be easy to install and remove from your vehicle since it's light, but also it'll be very easy to load bikes on since it's a platform rack. This rack also only touches bikes at the tire so it protects any damage to delicate frame materials or finishes.

  • Recommended Bike Rack for 2016 Mercedes-Benz GL 450
    To carry bikes on your 2016 Mercedes-Benz GL 450 you will need a hitch mounted rack because we don't have any trunk mounts that are confirmed to fit. If you don't already have a trailer hitch receiver we have the Curt Class III # C13190. This is a 2 inch receiver that is confirmed to fit your Mercedes. For a bike rack, the Thule Hitching Post Pro, part # TH934XTR, is my choice for you. It holds up to 4 bikes and has anti-sway cradles. It's a tilting rack as well which will help you...
