2015 Subaru Legacy 2.5 Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Towing Small Trailer


Could you point me in the right direction for hitch installation on my 2015 Subaru legacy 2.5 able to pull a 1981 13ft Scamp? Scamp empty weight is about 1000lbs. Thanks!!

We can definitely help point you in the right direction to pick out all of the correct components to tow a trailer with your 2015 Subaru Legacy. The first thing you'll want is a trailer hitch which for that I recommend the Draw Tite part # 75673 which is a custom fit Class III hitch with a 2 inch opening. This means it has plenty of capacity and was designed to specifically fit your vehicle. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

For trailer wiring the kit I recommend is the T-One kit part # 118671 because it fits your vehicle by plugging inline with the taillight connectors which means you won't have to do any hardwiring or splicing and because it has our most reliable converter box of all of the kits we have. I attached an install video for this too.

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.
