Hi i need a trailer hitch to be able to attach a small motorcycle aluminum carrier i wanted to know witch one could be the apropiate one to do this i see that most of the ones available for the vehicle only can go up to 300 Pound Tongue Weight limit witch that only weights the moto itself without the atachment.

There are only two hitches that will fit a 2008 Subaru Impreza 5-Door Wagon with Single Exhaust model. The best one is going to be the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch item # DT24959. This hitch is custom fit and bolts to your Subaru with included hardware. This hitch and the Curt item # C11315 are both 1-1/4" hitches and are the only ones available for your vehicle. Your Impreza does not have the capacity to transport a 300 lbs motorcycle and the carrier. You will need to tow your motorcycle behind your car in a trailer if you plan on using this vehicle.

To control your trailer's tail lights you will need the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness item # C56111. This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the tail lights.

For a ball mount you'd need the Draw-Tite Drawbar item # 3593 and then for hitch balls item # 19258 for a 2 inch ball or item # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball.
