Driving the family up to the campground? Hauling tools and equipment from the home improvement store? Pulling your boat to the nearby swimming hole? Whatever your destination and whatever trailer you're towing, Bring It® with a CURT trailer hitch!
CURT class 3 trailer hitches are designed, built and tested to accommodate a wide variety of towing applications. They are used on everything from full-size cars, vans and crossovers to light-duty pickup trucks and SUVs. Class 3 trailer hitches are perfect for towing fishing boat trailers, popup campers, ATV trailers, utility trailers and much more. They are also ideal for adding storage space to your vehicle with a hitch-mounted cargo carrier or bike rack (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest-rated towing component).
Each CURT class 3 hitch is engineered to fit on a specific vehicle. This provides the best possible fit and easiest installation. This particular custom class 3 hitch fits specific years of the Infiniti QX30, Mercedes-Benz GLA250 and Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG (to verify vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide or use the Vehicle Lookup tool). It is designed to integrate with the vehicle's existing features and offer a reliable connection to your trailer.
This Infiniti / Mercedes-Benz hitch is stringently tested in accordance with SAE J684 to ensure a weight carrying capacity of 4,000 lbs. GTW and 600 lbs. TW. It also features a 2" receiver tube opening to accept ball mount or other hitch accessory with a 2" x 2" shank.
From class 1 to class 5, all CURT custom-fit receiver hitches are made in the USA to ensure quality from design to finish (may include imported hardware). They are designed with hands-on engineering for a precise fit. They are welded using a combination of manual and robotic operations for speed and accuracy. Finally, they are finished with our unique co-curing process. Each hitch is dipped in a liquid A-coat for rust prevention, inside and out, and then co-cured in a durable black powder coat finish for maximum rust, chip and UV resistance.
Every CURT custom hitch design is thoroughly tested at our in-house testing facility in Detroit, MI. We adhere to the proposed SAE J684 testing protocols to make sure that the hitch you mount on your vehicle will be a dependable means to enjoy your lifestyle.
Whatever your passion -- whether it's hunting, fishing, camping, offroading or hard work -- you can expect reliability for the road ahead. All CURT custom hitches are covered by a limited lifetime warranty to give you confidence in each adventure, season after season.
Would be a little tough for a novice to tackle since there are some details left off the instructions. If you have never pulled a rear bumper cover (rear fascia) you might be stuck. The only four additional tools I would recommend are 10 mm crows foot, 16 mm ratcheting wrench, plastic wedge not too wide, and a telescoping magnet. The crows foot and magnet is for reaching the 10 mm nuts from inside the cargo area to remove the rear fascia. A swivel head ratchet really helps with removing the rear bumper from underneath the car or use the 16 mm ratcheting wrench. I installed this in my garage without raising the vehicle. The tail lights are tight, after removing the wing nuts for them just wiggle and pull straight back. Takes a bit of pulling effort. The rear fascia has four tabs at top left and right sides (they snap into a black holder) you have to release after removing the tail lights. Otherwise the directions are pretty good. One other tip is that you need to remove the plastic trim along the inside of the rear cargo area that covers the striker. Snap the covers off the cargo hold downs and remove the torx bolt, left and right. Then remove a center 10 mm bolt. Lift the cargo carpet/cover and pull up on trim to unsnap and remove (the plastic wedge helps if it doesn't come off). I didn't need to use it. Just read and follow the directions and watch the video on curtmfg.com and enjoy your hitch. Hope these tips help!! I installed this on 2017 MBZ GLA 250. Oh ya, don't forget to order the gaskets between the bumper and body. I would recommend four gaskets, Put one on each side on the body to cover the hole after removing the bumper and then cover the left and right holes on the bumper its self because now you'll have the hitch between the body of the car and the bumper now. You don't want water getting inside the bumper or inside the body of the car. Even though the bumper has drain holes I'd seal the holes just to help reduce the additional water ingress. Good Luck!! I think the hitch is awesome for an aftermarket unit. If you need the wiring harness for a trailer don't forget to order that separately.
If you are a consumer, beware: you will not be able to complete installation on your own. The instructions are very minimal, and they gloss over several details like "remove 4 bolts," two of which are impossible to reach unless you have an industrial shop in your garage. Do not even try to attempt this on your own unless you have a full blown mechanic's garage full of tools.
