Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Subaru Crosstrek


I have a utility trailer that measure 5x8, with a gate/ramp ... all mesh so it is light. I want to tow it with two dirt bikes on it with our new subaru crosstrek 1-1/4inch hitch ... will the tongue weight be too much off your experience?


Helpful Expert Reply:

You really have to check the owners manual of the vehicle to determine what the towing capacities are. From the research I did it looks like you have a 1,500 lb towing capacity which would indicate you would have a tongue weight capacity of 150 lbs.

For a hitch that fits your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek we have the Curt part # C11286 that would work well as long as you stay under the towing capacity of the vehicle. For wiring you would want the part # C56040 which is a confirmed custom fit.

For a ball mount you would then want the part # C45521 with hitch ball # A-82 for a 2 inch ball or part # A-80 for 1-7/8 inch ball.
