New guy with a ?: trailer hitch for 2006 G500?

Hi all,

New G owner here - a 2006. I did a search and wasn't able to get any clarity on aftermarket trailer hitches available for my year. I found some for 2005 and older and then 2010 and newer, but nothing in-between.

Any help pointing me in the right direction is greatly appreciated - thanks!

If you are planning to mount it yourself, I suggest that you remove the rear bumper first. The WS manuals tell you to remove the bumpers. But many here suggest that you don't have to. I installed mine without removing the bumper, but what a royal pain. Those bolts on the side arms are hard to get a wrench on without removing the bumper.

In hindsight, I wish that I had taken the time to remove it.

BTW, I bought my hitch - brand new MB in the box with all of the wiring - from a member here she didn't install it. It worked out well for me.

Good luck!
