How Does Draw-Tite Hitch 76182 Look on 2015 Subaru Forester?  


I am considering this hitch for my 2015 Forester but I want to know more about how it looks on the vehicle. Does this mount flush like the eco hitch for the Forester? Does it have a similar installation process? Do you have any photos of this installed? I am very interested in this hitch as it is more wallet friendly than the eco-hitch and has a higher TW capacity.

The instructions for the Draw-Tite Max Frame # 76182 have a photo showing how the hitch looks when installed on a Subaru Forester and I've included that photo for you. The hitch does have a 3,500 lb towing capacity and 525 lb tongue weight capacity.

If you were interested in towing you would need wiring harness # 118467 to get a 4-flat connector, as well as a ball mount. I recommend checking out Ball Mount Kit # 989900, which may fulfill your towing needs in one tidy package; two ball mounts - one with a 3/4” rise or 2” drop and the other with a 2-3/4” rise or 4” drop - a 1-7/8” hitch ball, a 2” hitch ball and a pin and clip.

I've added links to a video review of the ball mount kit, our page with each of our ball mounts, as well as a help article on ball mounts for you to take a look at.
