Who has a hitch on their MB?

Hello,

I am wondering who has a hitch on their cars. My uncle has a 190E that he wants to add a hitch to it. He wants to tow a small trailer behind.


I cant find any places to get a proper hitch. So far "Hitch City" is the only place that has a hitch that fits, however its about 350 bucks US .


So, would anyone want to get rid of their W201 hitch or knows a place where I can get one??

Thanks a lot.

My 300SD has one. I have never used it and don't plan to. Although since they are not cheap I will remove it when I sell the car just in case I ever want to install it on the SDL. Although I probably never will.

Delon or Delan or something like that seems to make the best assortment of import hitches. They are in Mass. as I recall and will sell direct, or used to. Someone should have the name and number.

That's what it is - Da'Lan. Maybe they don't sell direct any more.

I do

I had a local place put a reciever on for about $175, I did the wiring myself. I think a trailer rental place could do it, or RV store.

The U-Haul place put the hitch on my wagon. I think weve only towed 6 trailers though. We had the hitch and wiring installed for under 200$ (I think).

Trailer hitch WIRING

No Hitch , BUT tucked under the port, rear trunk well is the electrical plug
for a trailer of some sort. Obviously not a factory setup,the rig is wired in
using "Clip-On" wire attachers to the O.E. harness.

(Typical Amerikaner jury rig aparatus that exposes the harness to unnecessary
corrosion possibilities)

Really makes me wonder about the health (long term) of the drivetrain [spelled transmission], If the PO did in fact use the
W124.128/602.962 for towing anything more than an ultralight frame Titanium Bycycle.
