Will EcoHitch Trailer Hitch # 306-X7216 Fit A 2017 Subaru Forester XT


It does not appear my 17 XT has a center knock out. Watching a video for installation online the vehicle they were installing on also did not have a knockout. Will this fit a 17 forester xt?

The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7216 will work great on your 2017 Forester. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening.

If you need trailer wiring I recommend the T-One Wiring Harness # 118467. I have attached a link to an installation video you can check out.

If you plan on doing 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.
