Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Subaru Forester  


I would like to buy the Curt Trailer hitch for my daughters 2015 Forester. Unfortunately she lives 2200 miles away in Atlanta zip 30309 so I can not do the install. Can you recommend a mechanic in Atlanta, as well a list of everything I need to purchase e.g., wire harness, receiver, etc.

For her 2015 Subaru Forester the Curt Class III hitch part # C13144 is a great option that would work well. For the install though your best option is to find a local mechanic in the area with a good reputation and let them install it. Hitch and wiring installs are pretty basic for mechanics relative to what they normally do so almost any wouldn't have a problem.

For trailer wiring then you'd want the Tekonsha kit part # 118467 which is a confirmed fit and our most reliable option.

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.
