Draw-Tite or Curt Ball Mount With 1 Inch Rise for 2017 Subaru Forester


With C13144 trailer hitch for 2017 Subaru Forester, wanting to trailer both light boat trailer and bicycles ...what ball mounting would you recommend...19261, 2923, or C45030?


Expert Reply:

For your 2017 Subaru Forester, between the Curt Ball Mount # C45030 and Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 2923, I recommend the Draw-Tite # 2923.

I like the Draw-Tite because not only does it come with a pin and clip (the Curt does not and would need Pin and Clip # PC3), but it is longer by about 1 inch, so you have a bit of extra clearance. That can come in handy with your Forester when towing with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13144, which is recessed under the bumper.

The Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 2923 will work with the 1-7/8" Hitch Ball # 19261, and while the mount does come with the aforementioned pin and clip, you can lock it to your Subaru with the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98880.

Finally, since you are towing you will also need a 4-way for your 2017 Subaru Forester and the correct part for that is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C56040.
