Post New MB Owner and Benzworld Member

We recently gave up our 2005 Z71 Chevrolet Suburban (which we rather enjoyed until mechanical issues developed shortly after we hit 40,000 miles) for a 2006 certified pre-owned R350 with <16,000 miles. Wow, what were we thinking? What a complete and utter difference in handling, comfort and control. We have had VW's, Audi's, and the dreaded Honda Odyssey.

We have a large family and need the family truckster type of vehicle and we have finally found what I think is the perfect vehicle. Now I understand why they call the R series their crossover. Not quite SUV but very capable and refined; rock solid in the deep snow.

I have been searching the site for information on how to install a trailer hitch on the R-series but have not found a comprehensive walk-through. MB Parts was of no use so I have ordered all aftermarket parts and will try and post my experience for others to use.
