Towing Products For 2010 Subaru Forester


Hi, I am looking to purchase a tow package for my 2010 Subaru Forester. Are these the parts I need? Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - 13147 Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector - C56040 Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2inch Ball - 2inch Drop - 7,500 lbs - C45036 Do I need anything else? Thanks!


Expert Reply:

You have listed all of the items you need for your 2010 Forester.

The trailer hitch # 13147 is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening. Per Curt, any non-trailer load like bike carriers, or cargo carriers must be supported by stabilizing straps like part # 18050.

The Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C56040 is an easy installation by plugging into your Subaru wiring harness behind the trim panel in the rear cargo area.

The Curt Ball Mount # C45036 may work great for you. I have attached a link to a helpful article that explains how to choose the right ball mount.

Even though the hitch and hitch ball have towing capacities listed, you want to make sure you do not exceed the towing capacity of your vehicle.
