Comparing the Curt Hitch C13409 and Draw-Tite Hitch for a 2019 Subaru Forester


I can't decide between the Curt and Draw-Tite hitch for my 2019 Subaru Forester. Can you help?


Expert Reply:

The best trailer hitch we have for your 2019 Subaru Forester is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76271. The reason that this is the best trailer hitch for you is because it is a custom fit which means no cutting or drilling is required. It has a class III, 2" receiver tube opening and is rated for a trailer up to 3,500 lbs. It also has a durable black powder coated finish and comes with a lifetime warranty.

The other trailer hitch option we have for you is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13409. This Curt hitch is practically identical to the Draw-Tite hitch in both look and ratings. However, the Draw-Tite has an extra hole on the receiver tube. This extra hole is designed to be used with a stabilization pin which will not only secure a hitch mounted accessory and protect it from theft but it will also reduce the movement of them inside the receiver tube opening. If you were to ever use a bike rack or cargo carrier you would quickly understand why a stabilization device is needed.

I have attached a photo of how the hitch could look while installed on your Forester.
