Which Ball Mount for 50mm Hitch Ball to Use With Thule EasyFold XT 3 on 2018 Subaru Forester


I just bought the tule easyfold xt 3. I didnt realize I still need to buy the two bar and ball hitch to be able to use it. What would I need to buy to fit my 2019 subaru forrester?

In addition to the 50 mm Hitch Ball - 3/4" Diameter x 1-1/2" Long Shank - Chrome - 3,500 lbs # 63912, you'll need a ball mount with a 3/4" ball hole diameter. If your 2018 Forester has a 1-1/4" hitch then you'll want to use something like the Draw-Tite Drawbar for 1-1/4" Hitch - 2-1/8" Rise, 2-3/4" Drop - 6-5/8" Long - 2K # 3593. If your Forester has a 2" hitch then you'll need a hitch reducer, since there is not a 2" ball mount with a 3/4" diameter shank hole; the 50mm hitch ball are typically used on ball mounts for Class I/II hitches with 1-1/4" receivers. I recommend using the Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver # HT02 for that.
