I have had great products com from etrailers over the years! But this [hitch] from Curt is as bad of an example of American Workmanship I’ve ever seen! The welds are absolutely awful, I’ve been welding 35 years and 20 of that in robotics. I know Curt industries and would think they could produce better.

The hitch arrived in record time - 3 days for a heavy item. The trailer hitch was excellent quality. Power coating is beautiful. Borrowed an impact wrench and got the hitch installed in less than 30 minutes. Very pleased with the purchase. Would recommend hitch. Note: there were only 2 bolts in the installation kit so had to go purchase 4 additional galvanized bolts.


Comments
After one year, the hitch has survived being used for toeing garden trailer and being an impromptu step for getting into the Sprinter van. The paint is still shiny black, no rust and nothing wrong. Highly recommend the trailer hitch to anyone looking to install their own hitch, easily done in less than 30 minutes.

Simple installation. Perfect fit for a 2020 Sprinter 2500 4x4 diesel. No interference from exhaust tailpipe. Requires 18mm socket ans wrench. Needed a 1/2 drive breaker bar w/ 18mm deep socket to loosen the bumper M12 bolts.

The hitch was a breeze to install, it took about an hour taking my time. The electronic box took a little longer, but was easy as well. Since it's been on the Sprinter we've pulled a utility trailer (6x12) with gate and full sides. The hitch and relay box have worked flawlessly. I highly recommend the hitch, relay box and etrailer.


Comments
Everything is still working as it should. The hitch has not rusted out as predicted by a Mercedes snob on the Sprinter Forum. So glad I saved the money and went with your product.

I needed a hitch to fit my Sprinter van and did not think it would work with the factory rear step based on other internet information. This hitch said it would although I was still skeptical. I also needed it in a hurry for an upcoming trip. I received the hitch in three days and it fit perfectly with the step just like it said it would. About a fifteen minute install. Thank you very much.

Ordered it on Sunday and it arrived on Thursday. Build quality and finish look good. My only real disappointment is the hit wasn't packaged well for transportation (basically a large plastic bag wrapped and taped around the hitch) so it arrived with damage to the paint in a few areas. I touched it up with black spray paint before installation. Installation was very easy. The bolts that held my rear step in place were already oriented correctly so I didn't have to remove them and reinsert from the opposite side. There was some overspray/over applications of the vehicle undercoating onto the mounting surface, but it was easily removed with a putty knife. I didn't have a second set of hands to help so I used a set of jack stands to support the main cross member of the hitch and simply pivoted it into place, sliding a bolt in on each side to keep in there before sliding under the van to install and torque the rest. 30 minutes start to finish. Nice looking hitch. If it weren't for the shipping damage from the poor packing job I would have given it 5 stars.

We needed the hitch receiver in a hurry to accommodate changing travel plans. The two-day shipping arrived as planned. When I was preparing to install the hitch receiver onto the Sprinter, my son offered to help. In fact, he said, "I got this, Dad," and proceeded to get out his tools and do all of the installation. So I stepped back and set the timer on my phone out of curiosity. He used an impact gun to remove and reinstall the fasteners. He quipped how it was good that the directions recommended only removing one fastener at a time. Before I knew it, he was done. I looked at the timer which read 15:37, meaning 15 minutes and 37 seconds. I let him know of the time. He told me, "If I knew you were timing me, I'd have done it faster." All this to say that the design is such that it is not that hard to install, even with the spare tire still on. This fits on the sides, so there is no need to remove the spare. Well done on the design to make it so easy to install.

No issue with the part. It is good quality and simple to install. My only complaint is a no fault issue and that is there is so little ground clearance. It drags every time it enter a driveway or road that has a moderate dip or incline.

Super easy to install. Took about 30 minutes by myself. Highly recommend watching the installation video by etrailer in YouTube. With stock tires and wheels however, once the hitch is installed you will not be able to get the spare tire out or back in to the carrier without raising the van about 2”. I removed my spare tire to make the hitch install a little easier. Once finished the hitch doesn’t allow enough ground clearance to get the spare back into the carrier. My sprinter is converted and has a lot of weight in the back so this may have added to the reduced ground clearance as well. All in all- LOVE THE CURT HITCH!!!!

Five stars for the super easy installation to my 2018 Sprinter with the step bumper. Came with every bolt and nut needed as well as nice paper/picture installation instructions. After one year, paint and finish still holding up well even though I have scraped it a couple of times back there. Only recommendation would be to NOT mount the 7-pin lower than the the hitch receiver. I bent it and knocked it off from the times I drove over deep ruts. I ended up purchasing a 7-pin mount that straps to the cross bar and next to the 2" receiver.

The order process and shipment went great. The product worked well and install went as directed by instructions. I had to cut off the 4 pin trailer connector to get it through a small opening I had to drill in the floor to make it a custom installation. It might be a good idea if this connector was sent as a pigtail to connect up later instead of hard wired already. I didn't see it as an option listed when ordering. Also the wire that went to the battery was about 18" to short so had to splice in a piece there. Otherwise very happy with everything. Good product.

2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500

I purchased this for the new 1500 series Sprinter. (etrailer warned me that it might not be compatible, as it is designed for the 2500 Sprinter) It does bolt in to the 1500 Sprinter, but the exhaust was in the way. We were able to cut the exhaust and re-route it around the hitch. So, it is doable in the 1500, but will require a little custom work on the exhaust.



- 13358

2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500

Received the hitch and lighting kit in a very expeditious manner. When we went to install the hitch the unwrapping took quite some time as it was protected for shipment as etrailer wanted to ensure that the hitch arrived without any scratches or dings. Watching the install video is an awesome suggestion for those who will install this themselves! Extremely easy and took approximately 20 minutes for us from start to finish, gathering tools and tightening the last bolts. We found it is a good idea to use the 'buddy team' lift to position the hitch in a manner to get the first two bolts in place. You could use a jack but might not be the easiest. Hitch does hang a little lower but Curt has welded some plates to either side which help when driving down a steep driveway. (no scraping the actual hitch) Thank you Kristen for all of your help!!

Installed on 2014 Sprinter with factory step bumper. Haven't actually used the hitch for anything yet, but appears very well constructed, can't imagine there will be any problems. Easy installation, all you need is an 18mm box wrench and an 18mm deep socket wrench. A torque wrench is useful to get the bolts to the specified tightness.

I am trying to install this hitch on 2016 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 passenger van ( Short Version). The original exhaust is longer then the one on your video and it rests on the top of the hitch itself. Is there anything I can do, except of cutting the tip of my exhaust? Thank you


Comments
Thank you for your review and your business, Peter. No, you will not have to cut your exhaust tip. There are some ways that you can adjust the exhaust to correct the issue so there is clearance between it and the hitch. I have included a link to our help article that covers this topic. That link may be found here: The fix could as easy as bending an exhaust hanger a little or, worse case scenario, a muffler shop could make adjustments.

Wow, had the van for a year now. Hitch was a simple install, and fits perfectly with the factory rear step. I originally planned to get a van without the factory step, but I'm glad I have it. Yes, the receiver sits a bit lower, but the van has more than enough ground clearance, so it's never been an issue, and I do not expect it to be. I only rarely tow a trailer, but have many miles on it with a 4-bike hitch rack and no issues. The only "interesting" tidbit, is that the hitch is near enough to the exhaust outlet, that the Curt sticker on the right side melted a little. Pretty sure it's never hot enough to cause any issue other than the shrinky-dink sticker...

    The Curt hitch part # 13358 that you referenced fits the long and short wheelbase versions of your 2016 Mercedes Benz Sprinter 2500 with the factory step bumper. To determine if your spare carrier will fit past the bumper when this hitch is installed you'd need to take one measurement. You'll need to measure from the hitch pin hole out to the nearest upright portion of the carrier. If that distance is greater than 6-1/2 inches it will fit in this hitch and clear the rear bumper.

  • Recommended Hitch for 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with Aluminess Bumper
    The factory step bumper for a 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter will hang down lower than the standard bumper so the trailer hitch for the step bumper hangs down lower as well to account for this. There won't be a guaranteed hitch fit for a vehicle with aftermarket bumper but the best option would be the hitch for a step bumper since it will give more room for clearance. This option would be the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13358.

For trailer wiring we have the Tekonsha kit part # 118649 which is our most reliable trailer wiring option we have for your vehicle too. If you wanted to do some...

  • Are There Front Hitch or Recovery Accessories Available for my 2018 GMC Savana Van?
    I have a solution for you to add tow hooks to your 2018 GMC Savana Van, but there currently are not any front mounted hitches or winch capable bumpers available to fit your van. I recommend adding tow hooks similar to the Curt Bolt On Tow Hook with Keeper # C22411 to the frame of your Savana van to help with recovering your vehicle if you're ever caught in that position again. If you have a rear mounted hitch, you could also add the Curt Forged Tow Hook # C45500 to provide you with...

  • Recommended Winch Mount For 2 Inch Receiver On 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van
    For your 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van with 144 Wheel Base, you would need to use the winch on the rear receiver as there are not any front hitch receiver options from our manufacturers compatible with your vehicle.
