Is There a Hitch for a 2017 Subaru Forester That Does Not Require Heat Shield To Be Removed


Hi E-trailer! I just purchased the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver and I was wondering if there is a different hitch I could purchase and exchange for my 2017 Subaru Forester that does not require removing the heat shield. I worry that it might cause problems for my car down the line in a few years. Thanks for any help you can provide!

The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75876 is a great option for a 2017 Subaru Forester. It does not require the heat shield be permanently removed but it does require trimming. This will be necessary for any hitch installation but there will not be any issues created from doing this.
