Trailer hitch drawing or plans

Dear friends: I need to install a trailer hitch on my 1989 190 D. It is to pull a small boat. Since I live in Argentina I have to make the hinch myself (actually with a friend that does this things for regular cars).
If anyone has a drawing or plans with some instructions on how is the best way to make it for the particular vehicle, I will greatly appreciate it.
Alfredo from Argentina

I had one installed at my local hitch shop. All I can say is they took off the back bumper and welded a big piece of metal on. The hitch (reciever) is right below the bumper, they cut a perfect size hole through the cladding.

5 speed '01 Jetta V6 (new wifes car, pretty quick)
5 speed '85 Peugeot 505 2.2l Turbo Gas 197,000 mi. (wifes car, faster, sadly gone just short of 200k )
5 speed '83 Yamaha 750 Maxim 14,000 mi. (fastest)

Check out
They sell several different trailer hitches for most all cars including MB. For each different hitch they sell, you can download a .pdf of the installation instructions. Perhaps some of those installation sheets would give you some ideas you could use to fabricate a hitch from local materials.
