Another 50mm ball hitch I have seen recently in Europe.
Not sure what the tow rating is or the cost.

Designed (according to sticker) for 230 GE and 250 GD - price are about 150 Euro - the L shaped tow bar can, depending of the maker, be lowered a bit - usually and in combination of the trucks they are designed for, reckon 2,5 T
look at the construction - Original Oris was all welded - no adjustment or undersized bolts
G300TD - W463.331 & G250 - W461.401 Wolf LL

Here is a newer style hitch for sale; I have bought a couple of these. One on the G320 I sold last year and one on my 1997 G300.
Decent price.
