Why no hitches made for MB “Active Curve” system?

Just curious.... I’ve got a 2014 AMG GL63. Cant seem to find a hitch other than factory aftermarket install. No one makes a hitch for these vehicles equipped with “Active Curve” system. Have asked Curt, Draw-tite, U-Haul, Execuhitch et. al.

What gives? No apparent “mechanical” blockage...same setup as GL550. Is it the angle put on the receiver when the TV “leans into” the curve?

Welcome Aboard 👍

Maybe because towing wasn't a high priority when designing the vehicle.

Go to London Ontario, they put hitches on everything.

Ditto re: London, Ontario. Call Can-Am, Andy will get you straightened out, or curved properly

If any one has an answer that's the place

Thanks! Bit the bullet and had the factory hitch retrofitted to Mercedes AMG GL63. Now towing AS23D w Curt Echo and Equal-I-zer WD. All is well and tows like a dream.
