There is only one main difference between the Curt Hitch # C13409 and the Draw-Tite Hitch # 76271 for the 2021 Subaru Forester. That difference involves the bumper clearance measurement of the shanks. While the Curt measures 4 inches from the center of the shank's pinhole to the outer surface of the Forester's bumper, the Draw-Tite has a 5-inch length. The extra inch of the Draw-Tite will be advantageous of you are looking to purchase accessories that require you to clear the rear bumper.

As far as that difference, there are lots of similarities between the two hitches. Both hitches have a maximum gross trailer weight of 3,500 pounds and a maximum tongue weight capacity of 525 pounds. As far as the installation process, both hitches involve a simple bolt-on process with all hardware included. Since both hitches require a hitch pin and clip, you will need a Pin and Clip for 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches # PC3.
