Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2005 Subaru Forester


Hi what is the difference between the CURT C12038 and C120383 trailer hitch? Would they both fit exactly the same for a 2005 Subaru Forester?


Expert Reply:

The difference between the Curt Hitches part # C120383 and part # C12038 is that the # C120383 comes with a ball mount that you would use for towing and the other hitch does not.

Either hitch would fit your 2005 Subaru Forester. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

Then you will need to add a properly sized ball and the wiring. Those items are not included with the hitch. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. For trailer wiring you can use Tow Ready harness # 118461. I have included links to videos showing typical installations for the hitch and the wiring.
