Expert Reply:

For your 2005 Subaru Legacy Wagon there are both Class II and Class III trailer hitches available. I recommend a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver such as # 75560 because it will be stronger and the 2 inch receiver affords you many accessory options. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you.

If you plan on doing some towing I recommend 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 have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

And for trailer wiring I recommend # 118461 to add a 4-Way flat connector to the rear of the vehicle. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation on a similar vehicle.
