Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2019 Subaru Crosstrek


Hello there I am looking for a class 1 trailer hitch for a 2019 Suburu Crosstrek. I will be towing a pop up tent trailer. I have searched the site, but am only seeing class 3 hitches available. Do you carry a Class 1 that would work for my vehicle? Thank you


Expert Reply:

For your 2019 Subaru Crosstrek, I recommend using the Class III trailer hitch because it is a stronger and more durable hitch offering more options for ball mounts and other accessories due to the more standard 2 inch receiver. My recommendation is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13382.

If you really want a 1-1/4 inch receiver, I recommend going with the class II hitch receiver # C12184. There is not a class I hitch receiver for your vehicle but the only difference between a class I and class II hitch receiver is that there isn't a welded block limiting accessories in the class II hitch receiver. The class II receivers generally have a higher towing capacity than a class I hitch as well.

Either of these hitches will work to help you tow your pop-up camping trailer with the proper corresponding ball mount and hitch ball. If you don't have trailer wiring, I also recommend using the
T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118467.
