Which Hitch For A 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Is Most Hidden Curt Or Draw Tite


So I'm looking at both the Curt and Draw-Tite hitches for my 2019 Mercedes GLC 300. I'm going to get a cargo basket and I don't want it hanging down so the least obvious one when not in use is my preference really.


Expert Reply:

With appearance being the key consideration, my recommendation is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13290 over the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76082. The great part about this hitch is you will not need to do any trimming or modifying of the rear fascia, keeping your GLC's original appeal. The receiver provides 1-1/2" more bumper clearance than the Draw-Tite as well. This helps keep the overall profile low at the rear of your vehicle which you can see from the installed example included.

In addition to the appearance considerations, the Curt also has higher capacities, is priced great, and does not require any drilling into your vehicle's frame to install. The 23x60 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 is a great option as well if you're still looking for a basket.
