Just what I needed for my car, very courteous and knowledgeable rep assisted me on the phone when I ordered the hitch


2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class


2013 GLK350 North American with the AMG styling package (different rear valance). The different valance did NOT interfere at all with the install.

I won't lie, this thing is a pain to install and the 4 bolts holding the strap to the bracket at the differential were too short. A quick run to Ace Hardware solved that. Looking at it initially, the strap is actually about an inch too short. Once I installed the new bolts and cranked them down, everything seemed to suck up as it should.

Now on to the's a great hitch. Once installed, it's super secure and I doubt I'll ever have issues with it. It's identical to the Curt hitch...but with a slightly textured matte black finish. I think it looks much better than the glossy Curt hitch.

Sidenote: The Mercedes exhaust hangers will make you want to pay someone to do this. There's no room to work. This is an MB issue, not th h itch's fault. I trimmed some of the black plastic back and installed the hitch with the exhaust in place.

I'll try to send some pic of the hitch installed later this week.


Nice quality

  • etrailer Hitch Design for 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350
    As of right now (February 2023) we don't have any photos of the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e72KR for your 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350, but fortunately this hitch looks exactly the same as the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13177 just with a matte black finish instead of glossy black like what the Curt has. I'm attaching a photo of the Curt hitch as well as a photo showing the difference in the matte and glossy black finishes for you to check out.

  • Availability of Install Video for Hitch that Fits 2013 Mercedes GLK350
    For your 2013 Mercedes GLK350 we only have install videos for the Draw Tite hitch part # 75774 and not the Curt you referenced part # C13177. I did attach a link to a set of detailed instructions for the Curt hitch for you to check out though.

  • Why is There a Different Hitch for the 2013 Mercedes Benz GLK 250 and 350
    The two hitches you referenced for the 2013 Mercedes Benz GLK are very similar but have different applications. The part # C13155 is the correct hitch for the GLK250 whereas the # C13177 is for the GLK350. While these hitches look very similar you will notice that the back mounting bracket of the 13177 uses a taller mounting plate that comes up higher than the other hitch. This is due to different shaped crossmembers on either vehicle model. Since you have a 250 you would want the part...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Carrier Recommendations for a 2015 Mercedes GLK350
    We do have trailer hitches that will fit your 2015 Mercedes GLK350. They are all actually Class III trailer hitches and have 2 inch receivers. If you already have a bike rack that fits a 1-1/4 inch hitch you can use a reducer sleeve, # HT02, in the 2 inch hitch to use the 1-1/4 inch bike rack. All of the hitches will have the receiver and part of the cross tube visible beneath the vehicle. The hitches had to be designed in such a way that, to fit the vehicle, there wasn't away to conceal...

  • Trailer Hitch Comparison for 2014 Mercedes GLK 350, Curt or Draw Tite
    For your 2014 Mercedes GLK 350 I would highly recommend the Draw Tite hitch part # 75774. It has higher capacities and will install in about half the time when compared to the Curt so it would be the best option. No reinforcing would be required either.

  • Can Friction Sway Control be Used With Curt Hitch C13177 on 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK350
    Let's start with the friction sway control, and yes, you can use that with your trailer and 2014 Mercedes GLK350 that has the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13177. What you will need is a friction sway control system by Curt, and a sway-control bracket for your ball mount: - Curt Friction Sway Control for Weight Distribution Systems # 17200 - Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 2" Ball Mounts # RP26003 The friction sway control can be used so long as you have electric brakes on your trailer...
