Will Curt Ball Mount C45521 Fit a 2014 Subaru Outback with Class I Trailer Hitch

Question:

I HAVE A 2014 SUBARU OUTBACK WITH A 2.5 I ENGINE AND A CLASS 1 HITCH ON IT. THE HITCH IS 1 1/4 x 1 1/4 RECEIVER. CAN THE C45521 BALL MOUNT BE USED IN THIS RECEIVER AND IF NOT WHY NOT. IT LOOKS LIKE IT WOULD BE PERFECT FOR MY TRAILER. THANK YOU

Expert Reply:

Ball mount # C45521 is compatible with Class I and II trailer hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers. So it will fit the hitch. Usually though on Class I and II trailer hitches you have to use the ball mount indicated by the hitch manufacturer or it could void the hitch warranty. If the hitch is an OEM hitch then you will need to check with the dealer.

The issue is that on Class I and II trailer hitches they test and rate the hitch using a specific ball mount. The use of a different ball mount so they want you to use it. I have included a link to our ball mount FAQ article with some additional ball mount information.
