Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for a 2006 Mercedes R350


I am trying to find a hitch AND a wiring harness for our camper to be towed by our 2006 Mercedes R350. I found a hitch on your site but I dont know what is needed for wiring as the 2006 R-Class did not come with camper wiring pre-installed. Can you help with some form of kit? Thanks!

For a hitch for your 2006 Mercedes Benz R350 we do have the part # 75470 as a fit like you have determined. Now for wiring we have universal wiring kits like the part # C56236 which are a confirmed fit.

Or, if you wanted a wiring harness that does not cut into the wiring of your vehicle at all we have the ZCI part # 119250KIT which would also work well.

If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
