Best Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2021 Subaru Forester That Will Not Sacrifice Ground Clearance


I'm looking for a hitch for my 2021 Subaru Forester. I need it to carry my Kuat NV bike rack but I don't want some big hitch that hangs below my bumper as I do go off-road with my Subaru and don't want something hanging down that may get caught.


Expert Reply:

I recommend the Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver # SH65MR for your 2021 Subaru Forester. This receiver features a removable Receiver Attachment # 391RR2 that will allow you to remove any portion of the receiver that mounts below your bumper when you are not using your Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # NV22B.

If you plan on also doing any towing you can get the Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Towing Kit # SH77GR so that you get everything you need now or you can add the Towing Kit # SH82MR later to the Stealth Receiver when you decide you need to tow with it.

The towing kit will provide you with wiring needed for Auxiliary Lights # C53201 which are needed when the bikes impair the clear view of the tail lights on your Subaru. Or you can use the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118467 for a simple 4-way wiring connection if you don't need the whole towing kit.
