Will the 1-1/4" Drop Draw Tite Drawbar Work with 1-1/2" Drop Needed for Trailer


I recently had a 1-1/4inch hitch mounted on my 2022 Subaru Crosstrek Sport and it measures 15-1/2inch from the ground to the top of the hitch receiver opening. I purchased a C.E. Smith multi-sport trailer which has a 14inch coupler height. I have not been able to find a 1-1/2inch that fits with a 1-1/4inch receiver. However, there are a number of options that fit a 1-1/4inch . Given the car will have weight in it as well as weight from the tongue, I feel as though this is ok given the is likely less the 1-1/2inch when loaded. Is there a product here that hits the 1-1/2inch exactly or would I be OK with a 1-1/4inch ?


Expert Reply:

The Draw Tite Drawbar part # 36053 would work great on a vehicle/trailer 1-1/2" apart since the vehicle would likely sag some either from cargo or the trailer therefore the 1-1/4" drop the above drawbar offers will still work great. This is also your best option as we do not currently offer any 1-1/4" drawbars with an exact 1-1/2" drop.

The drawbar comes with a hitch pin but if you need a hitch ball use part # 19258.
