Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Subaru Forester for Towing  


I will be towing my Motorcycle which is a full dress bike.. Im wondering if I should go with a class ll 13501 or a class lll 13503. My bike weighs 768 pounds dry weight.

For almost all situations I recommend going with a Class III hitch over a Class II when both are available for a vehicle. Especially if towing since the Class III hitches have higher capacities. For your 2013 Subaru Forester you would want the Draw Tite hitch part # 75650. I prefer the Draw Tite hitches as they don't require the stabilizer strap like part # 18050 that the Curt requires.

For trailer wiring you then would want the part # 118467 which I attached an install video for as well.

Since 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.
