Weight of Draw-Tite # 76182 and EcoHitch # 306-X7216 for 2018 Subaru Forester


Hello - looking at the Drawtite 76182 and the EcoHitch X7216 for my 2018 Forester. I was just wondering what the actual weights of the two hitches are. Not the capacity but the actual weight. Thanks.


Expert Reply:

The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76182 weighs right at 35 pounds. The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch # 306-X7216 is just a tad heavier at 37.5 pounds.

Both hitches are confirmed to fit your 2018 Subaru Forester and feature a similar hidden design where only the receiver is visible behind the vehicle. Between the two options I recommend going with the Draw-Tite # 76182 because it features a higher tongue weight capacity of 525 pounds (compared to 350 on the EcoHitch) and also has a more economical price point.

I have attached an installation video on the 2017 Forester that you can use for reference. The process should be identical for your 2018 model.
