I ordered and installed this hitch last month (Aug 2011). I was very satisfied with customer service that took my telephone order and with the fast shipping.
I installed the hitch myself and read most of the prior reviews to get hints on installation. I think that the instructional video doesn't make it clear that besides the 2 rubber "doughnuts" supporting each muffler there is an additional doughnut hanger just forward of where the single exhaust pipe forms the "Y" to the dual mufflers. If you don't remove this one you will not be able to lower the mufflers low enough to install the hitch. I think this is why a couple of people had to remove their mufflers to install the hitch.
Taking advice of previous reviewer, I also removed the foam storage trays that are on both sides of the spare tire and removed the round pieces of tape covering access holes which allowed me to drill from inside the vehicle.
I installed the unit myself. Had the cars rear tires on low ramps. Used a small floor jack at the "Y" to lower the exhaust and kept the jack there to support exhaust.
Laying on cardboard I used a second floor jack support and raised the hitch into place and pumped only a few strokes with my right foot as I used my hands to level/balance and position the hitch and started the nuts on the bolts. It took about an hour & 15 minutes to complete the install. A friend was supposed to help me with the job but by the time he got here I was done.
I also bought the S64670 Swagman XTC-2 bike carrier and S64029 locking anti-rattle hitch pin. Very satisfied with both.




by:

The processing of disconnecting the exhaust pins from the rubber disks was more challenging than in the video. Perhaps I needed a special tool to do it. I used a small crowbar or a long screwdriver depending on access and leverage points. One thing to make it easier is to spray lubricant into both of the pins that go into the rubber disks.

I did the job on the ground using jack stands to hold the rear of the car up. Having a floor jack to raise the exhaust back in place allowed me to subtlety raise and lower the exhaust as necessary to align the rubber disks in line with the pins for reconnection.

As always, wear goggles when working under the car because I got a lot of sand/dirt fall down as I was working the pins and rubber disks.

The hitch looks better than I expected.

Bought this for my Subaru Forester 2010. I used it to move over 2,000 miles pulling a uhaul. It worked wonderfully and now I use it for a bike hitch and it is still solid and a great hitch.

This receiver is great. Even somebody like me with minimal tools and experience can figure it out. Because my exhaust bolts are extremely rusty, I opted to not remove the exhaust, and instead lowered it as far as I could get it. This made it considerable harder nearly every step of the way because it meant I was working around two large cylinders, but I did get it installed eventually. I also managed to do this without another person to help hold the receiver in place while bolting. This was the one time that having the exhaust there was helpful because it held it up on one end while I held the other.

Overall this is a great product. Though I have not put it to the true test, I am confident that it will stand up to the task.

*Seperate testimonial to E-trailer's AMAZING customer service:
I ended up losing one of the rectangle steel plates inside the frame after putting it in. I emailed them and they promptly sent not 1, but 4 new ones out to me for no charge! Thanks a ton.

I picked this trailer hitch out because it was the absolute cheapest one. It arrived today less than a week after I ordered it. I was able to track the package online which was helpful. The hitch was a great fit. I installed it in my 2012 Subaru Forrester. I felt a little overwhelmed reading the instructions. I read them a couple of times, and watched The etrailer video And I was able to do it relatively painlessly. I am very pleased with the purchase, the product, the service.

Well built product. Great service from etrailer. Extremely easy to install. This hitch has gotten lots of use.

This was exactly what I needed. This high quality hitch was very easy to install. Instructions were pretty easy to follow. The YouTube installation video was a lot easier to follow. Now I can move up to 4 mountain bikes on this bike rack with confidence to any place I want to go. Thanks etrailer.com!!!

Awesome!!!!! This product is of the highest quality. Install was a snap. And it works with all kinds of bike racks.

WOW !!!! Fast delivery !!!! It had taken me a full two hours...I stopped to take pics at nearly every step..I even used the box it came in to lay on while I installed....I'm so happy with all the money I saved ordering through etrailer.com and installing myself. Thank you very much for such a pleasant experience.

Trailer hitch for my 2012 Subaru Forester had a good price and is very good quality. It fit perfect and looks good. Service and instruction video were great. I have bought 2 hitches for my cars and am pleased with both of them.

Been using this hitch for over a year. Couldnt be happier. Use it mainly for mounting a bike rack.

I was extremely pleased with the quality of the hitch itself and the install was pretty easy. Customer service was terrific. It arrived a day earlier than they had predicted and everything was exactly as advertised. I would highly recommend both etrailer.com as well as the Curt hitch.

High quality. Relatively easy install with good instructions.

This trailer hitch was very easy to install on my 2012 Subaru Forester. Subaru and various mechanics wanted to charge me $200-300 to have it installed, but with the help of a friend I was able to install it on my own in about 45 minutes. The hardest part was lowering the exhaust.

I have not yet used the hitch to haul anything, but it is perfect for my hitch-mounted bike rack.

2013 Subaru Forester

Ladies - you can do it! 2013 Forester - Installed by a woman. Package arrived in excellent condition; all parts present. I used the "remove the spare tire trays" method. The side trays are easy to pop out and put back in. I think it was a better option than drilling/grinding from below. I used a 17/32 bit and a small round file. Install was not difficult but for putting the isolators back on. Make sure the rubber isolator is on the long bar of the exhaust hangar as you hang the exhaust back up. :) You'll be glad you did. A few choice words and tenacity got them to behave. All in all, time was close to 60 minute install. I didn't need to lift the car up. MacGuyver'd hitch supports with cinder blocks and split wood until I could get the bolts on. Torqued to [see instructions] per instructions. I get my bike rack in this Thursday. Excited to try out my new hitch! Thanks etrailer. You are a great company! And thank you to all who shared their experiences. You helped out immensely!




by:
2012 Subaru Forester

Toughest part of install was disconnecting the rubber exhaust hangers.
Hitch was easy to install once exhaust was dropped down.
Hitch looks great installed, it fits nice and tight under bumper cover.
This hitch will be used to carry a bike rack and occasional utility trailer tow.

Exhaust hangers are much easier to reinstall then to remove.
Soap solution and grease help a lot.
I also blessed with a 2 post lift to put the car up in air makes doing this type of work 100% easier.




by:
2015 Subaru Forester

I bought this trailer hitch for my 2015 Subaru Forester. I wish I had 4 wire threads for all four bolts instead of just two. I actually threaded the other two bolts with thread so not to lose those as well (the video you had was excellent, but I do not have a car lift and am on the ground under the car). Also could you state to wipe clean the surface that the trailer hitch is in contact with? As I was torquing down the bolts I heard crunching sounds (probably dirt and such). I was not going to lower the hitch to clean at that point. I am sure it is okay, but cleaning would have been nice. Everything else worked out great. It took me about 2 hours and 40 minutes to install (my drill is weak, the five exhaust supports took longer to take off and on, and I took pictures and video). But overall I am very happy with the product.




by:
2009 Subaru Forester

I'm not the most mechanically minded person, but I found the installation process of this to be simple and straightforward. The only challenges I had in installation were fitting the drill up in there to drill the holes bigger (even after lowering the exhaust), and getting the holes in the hitch to line up with the bolts without pushing the bolts through! Definitely required a helping set of hands to raise it up and bolt it on.
It's a sturdy product. I plan on using it primarily for a cargo carrier for deer hunting purposes, but I'm sure I'll try to find other things to use it for as well!




by:
2012 Subaru Forester

Just had the hitch installed.

It
looks great, have to wait for better weather to see how well it works with my bike rack hooked up to it.

May need to purchase the wiring harness at some point if I decide to use it with a small trailer




by:
2011 Subaru Forester

It was not 15 minutes as on video. Taking rubbers off needed some lube and force. Drilling and dremeling while under the car is a bit of a chore :-) watched video 3 times to get fishhooking right :-) but after couple of hours it was on. It looks sharp :-) can be done by two folks and small ramps. Needed extra: 1/2 inch drill bit and drill, Dremel with some cutting wheel, lube, belt, ramps, wrench with bit, power for tools, some rug and gloves :-) overall : good product and good instruction by etrailer.




by:
2010 Subaru Forester

There’s a reason this Curt hitch is a top recomendation for your Subaru Forester, easy to install and strong as all get out. Low profile It doesn’t stick out past the bumper, and only weighs 30lbs. Fit and finish are excellent perfect for towing or a bike rack. etrailer videos take all the guesswork away from the project. Thanks again for the free shipping and phone support!




by:

After drilling holes out in the car the hitch fit absolutely perfect




by:
2011 Subaru Forester

The product was 100% as advertised. I had one small confusion point which holes were meant to be used for the install. The guide had a diagram that didn't quite meat up with real life, a quick skim threw the video guide cleared that up in seconds and the install was done in about 45 minuets.




by:

Hitch is great! Great fit! Super solid! The hardware kit provided had some helpful bits included to make the job easier. If you are a little handy and have a safe way to lift the rear of your vehicle, it is quite doable. Many local garages install them for not too much money if you prefer.

The hitch is made great. The installation video made installing the hitch a snap. Took me and a buddy a little over and hour. In two beers time everything is back on a working. Yes, I would recommend this

The online video instructions were great. I installed the hitch using the version where you just detach the muffler at the hangers and one more on the exhaust pipe (5 total) and drop it down, but with a strap in place. I installed it right in my driveway without jacking it up or using ramps. Took maybe two hours, but I took my time with it.

Pretty easy install. The videos helped! Took around a casual 2 hours to install it.

  • Hitch Spacers For Curt Trailer Hitch # 13147
    The square hole spacer blocks for your Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class III # 13147 are within the tolerances as you referenced. They are simply used to keep the bolt from rotating so you can torque the flange nut to specifications. I've attached the installation details to assist with the installation and heat shield modification.

  • Are The Chain Loops On a Hitch Rated As Tow Points?
    No. You are not able to use the safety chain loops on your Curt # 13147 hitch as tow points because the loops that are found on the receiver tube of trailer hitches are not rated for towing. These loops are designed to have safety chains looped to them and connected to the trailer in order to provide a layer of safety in the event that the hitch ball or ball mount fail.

  • Rear Fascia Trimming on a 2009 Subara Forester
    The 2009 Subaru Forester will not need to have the rear fascia trimmed or cut in order to install a hitch. The hitches designed for your vehicle sit just under the rear fascia. Some vehicles will need to have the rear fascia trimmed in order to install a hitch, but not in this case.

    The fishwire tool does come with Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13147, for the 2009 Subaru Forester. Corrosion and rust is a possibility and one way to help prevent it from happening is to give the holes a shot of spray paint like you mention.

  • Exhaust Will Not Lower on 2009 Subaru Forester to Install Curt Trailer Hitch
    So even after releasing the exhaust from all those mounts it still stayed in place? It must really be unwilling to move? Have you tried a gentle pull downward on the rear of the exhaust system? It could be bound up at a pipe connection somewhere and just needs a little persuasion. Also, make sure that you are releasing the exhaust from the hangers on both the passenger's and driver's side. There should just be 3 that you have to release it from. It did go pretty smooth when we installed...

    You may only need to lower the exhaust system on your 2011 Subaru Forester to install this Curt Hitch, part # 13147. The mechanic maybe did not realize that you only had to lower it temporarily, and he thought you had to remove the whole system. Or maybe he did not realize that if you unhook the four rear exhaust hangers the exhaust will drop enough to allow you to install the hitch. The exhaust will have to be supported at this point to prevent any damage from being done to the exhaust. I...

  • Trailer Hitch with Best Ground Clearance for 2009 Subaru Forester
    I have some great trailer hitch options for a 2009 Subaru Forester but they all sit just below the rear bumper fascia so there will be a slight reduction in ground clearance no matter which options you choose. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13147 which is a custom bolt-on fit. It does sit nice and snug to the rear bumper so the minimal ground clearance reduction should not create many issues. I cannot recommend modifying any trailer hitches but you're welcome to do...

    For your 2013 Subaru Forester I'd actually recommend the Draw Tite hitch part # 75650 over the Curt you mentioned as it does not require the use of the stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. Curt seems a bit overly cautious with the strap recommendation, especially with a 2 inch hitch like the # 13147, but we have to recommend you follow their guidelines with their hitches otherwise the warranty will be voided.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch w/ 2 Inch Receiver For Carrying Bike Rack on 2009 Subaru Forester
    The Curt Class III hitch you referenced, part # 13147 is indeed a fit for your 2009 Subaru Forester. However, I'd recommend the Hidden Hitch model, part # 87493. I make this recommendation because the warranty requirements of the Curt hitch state that a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 must be used on all non-trailer loads in order to preserve your warranty coverage. The strap isn't compatible will all vehicles, so I'll typically recommend the Hidden Hitch or the Draw-Tite brand which...

  • Comparing Trailer Hitch Receivers from Curt and Draw-Tite for 2011 Subaru Forester
    For your 2011 Subaru Forester, the Draw-Tite # 75650 hitch is rated for the same towing capacity and more tongue weight than the Curt # 13147. The Curt hitch is just as strong a hitch and because it is made in the USA is arguably made of better steel but it does based on their warranty require the stability strap # 18050 for a bike rack. There isn't any noticeable stability difference between the two hitches.

This is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver so it is great for towing. I checked the owner's manual for a 2009 Forester and if the trailer does not have brakes then the capacity the vehicle can tow is 1,000 pounds. With brakes the capacity is 2,400 pounds.

Since there are two Curt hitches available for your 2013 Subaru Forester you'll have to determine which you have. It's pretty easy to though.
