Recommended 2" Rise Ball Mount For 2018 Subaru Forester W/ Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver 76182  


The height to the inside top of the Drawtite 76182 receiver tube on our 2018 Forester measures 15-3/4. Per Sylvansport, the bottom of the trailer coupler on our GO camper measures 17inch from the ground. Both measurements are taken on level ground. Rounded to the nearest inch we apparently need a ball mount with a 1inch rise. So far I have not seen a listing for a ball mount with a 1inch rise. What do you suggest? Thanks!


Expert Reply:

Since your trailer coupler is 1-1/4" higher than the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76182 on your 2018 Subaru Forester I recommend going with a 2" rise ball mount like the Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2" Ball - 4" Drop - 2" Rise - 7,500 lbs # C45056 which comes with a 2" hitch ball and hitch pin and clip.

Since the rear of your Subaru will likely sag a bit with the trailer connected, adding the extra 3/4" will be better to make the trailer level when it is hitched.

I included a video of the # C45056 for you to take a look at.
