Best Hitch for Transporting Bikes and Light Duty Towing for 2021 Subaru Outback


so many hitch choices for 2021 Subaru Outback. Which one is recommended? I'll be carrying a rack with 4 bikes and will be doing some light towing with a 4 x 8 light duty trailer I use for taking trash to the dump once or twice a month.


Expert Reply:

From a cost, versatility and appearance standpoint, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # DT94MR. The hitch has a 3500 lb towing/525 lb tongue weight capacity, which would be perfect for carrying your bikes and for the occasional trash run. Once installed, the hitch will be mostly concealed behind the vehicle bumper, with only the receiver tube and the safety chain loops being visible from the rear of the vehicle.

Since you'll be towing with the vehicle, you'll also need a trailer wiring harness like part # 118467, a ball mount like # 2923 and a hitch ball like # 19261 for a 1-7/8 or # 63845 for a 2 inch ball.
