Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 to Use with 2 Inch Bike Rack


Hey expert team. I have myself a 2018 Mercedes GLC300 and also a bike rack that needs a 2 inch hitch receiver. I see a couple options but I'm wondering which one you recommend and why. Ready to buy. Thanks for your help.


Expert Reply:

For your 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch # 76082. This is because unlike with the Curt model that is also available for your vehicle, Draw-Tite does not require that an additional stabilizing strap be used for non-trailer loads like a bike rack. Since this is exactly what you are needing the hitch for and using the strap can be a bit of a pain, the Draw-Tite is definitely the better option.

Otherwise both hitches will basically have identical installation procedures and will be positioned in the same spot under the rear bumper of your Mercedes. The 2 inch receiver on the Draw-Tite # 76082 will work perfectly with your existing bike rack.

I have attached an installation video that you can use for reference.
