Pin Hole to Bumper Clearance Dimension for Curt Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch for 2015 Subaru Forester  


HI, I have a 2015 Subaru forester. I watched the install video for you curt C13144. the 6 1/4 inch of clearance needed from the end of the hitch to clear the back of the vehicle concerns me. I could not find this dimension for the DrawTite hitch. Do you have a hitch that sticks out further?inch I plan on using it for a light trailer, bike rack, etc. Thanks,

The Draw Tite Hitch # 75876 will have a distance of 6-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the rear bumper.

It's pretty close to the Curt hitch part # C13144 that you referenced as well.

If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

For trailer wiring you would want the part # 118467.
