B200 trailer hitch success in Toronto, ON
B200 Trailer Hitch Success in Toronto
Success! I have just bought a 2009 B200 and wanted a trailer hitched installed. MB has a factory one, but they don't sell it in Canada. Went searching for aftermarket. Since the B200 is not sold in the US and all the hitches you can get here are from the US none are available the manufactures don’t know the hitch exist, therefore they don't have one.
Found some great info here on the forum that directed me to start to get a little creative.
Option One: Bring a hitch in from the EU. Would work but would need to do some modifications and the cost to get it here was become very expensive.
Option Two: Custom made hitch. Success!
Went to a place call Vangro Welding (726 Dundas Street East, Mississauga, ON, 905-279-6082).
Ed Groot the owner custom made a hitch. Better yet he made it like the ones in the EU. Total hidden!
Just like the factor hitch the receiver connects vertically up through the bumper. When not using the hitch no evidence their is a hitch installed.
With receiver installed I can use a 2" pinto adapter for bike racks or for pulling a small unity trailer.
