Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2018 Subaru Forester


Want to install a trailer hitch on my 2018 Forester. What do you recommend? I just want to make sure that it looks ok and has the 2 inch hitch for a bike rack. Not sure if I will use it for towing or not.


Expert Reply:

The trailer hitch that I recommend installing on your 2018 Subaru Forester is the Draw-Tite # 76182. This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver so you can use it with a wide variety of accessories. It features easy-to-use safety chain loops and is more cost-effective than alternative options.

If you don't already have a bike rack then I recommend the Thule T2 Pro XTR # TH83JV because it comes with bike and rack locks, secures the bike(s) without making frame contact, and can carry up to 2 bikes weighing in at 60 lbs. I have attached a review video for you to check out.

For towing you also need wiring like the T-One # 118467 and a ball mount kit like the # 989900. Be sure to check out the linked ball mount article though to make sure that the 2" drop is correct for your application.
