To Tim B.
Thanks for the link to the trailer hitch web site for the R class. I note that it requires some trimming of the underbody plasic or that plastic "skirt" that comes down low on the back of the R class. We are leasing our R class. Do you know if it is a problem with US leasing to put trailer hitch on including trimming plastic.
Like others, we were assured last March by dealer, who was on phone with MB-USA, that a trailer hitch would be available "very soon". I was emphatic that I would not buy the car unless I had absolute assurance that MB would offer it. MB and dealer said it would. I was just up at dealer today and was told that they contacted MB and that nothing was available yet. The dealer's "expert" in this area said he didn't think they ever would.
Unhappy R class Owner if anyone from MB reads this site. chet-ga
