Adding a hitch

I've been to several Airstream rallies and now need my own trailer. I'm new to all this so need help please with first getting a hitch on my rig. I have a 2007 Mercedes ML350 with a towing capacity of 7200 lbs. Does anyone have experience towing with a similar SUV? I'm considering a 19' Bambi or a 20' Flying Cloud. I'd appreciate any help. Thank you.

I have a 2010 ML diesel and tow a 2012 25' Eddie Bauer.

The ML is at the top of the list as the best tow vehicle made (not something promoted much by MB). My passing lane is going uphill believe it or not.

Had Andy at CanAm modify my factory hitch to substantially improve towing performance and enhance safety. Was referred to Andy by Rich Luhr. Andy will dispel a lot of the towing myths out there with hard science.

Welcome to MB towing club!!!

Welcome to the Board! I agree - it's high time to put a trailer behind that vehicle

Let's have a polishing party: I'll supply the trailer and buffing supplies. BYOB (bring your own buffer)

Your vehicle could be the creme de creme of all SUV's for towing an Airstream.

We toured with folks who had a ML350 gaser and they raved about the ride and performance. Also set up by Can Am.
