Towing Capacity

The 2019 Forester EcoHitch comes in two sizes to give you plenty of options!

How much weight can a Subaru Forester tow? That’s a great question. The 2019 Forester can tow 1,500 pounds, but you can also find the tow rating in your owner’s manual. The EcoHitch is rated at 350 pounds tongue weight and 3,500 pounds, meaning that it’s plenty strong to handle anything you could want to haul with your Forester up to your vehicle’s tow rating! So, not only will you have 76.1 cubic feet of cargo space within your 2019 Forester for hauling extra cargo, but now you’ll have a receiver hitch that you can install a bike rack or cargo tray to bring even more items!


This trailer hitch is engineered to meet stringent national SAE J684 towing safety standards using state of the art testing methods. With 2-inch and 1.25-inch receivers available, you’ll have plenty of options of accessories to use with your hitch.


100%, No Drill Bolt-On Installation

Our Subaru trailer hitch is 100 percent no-drill bolt-on. That means that the hitch installation requires absolutely no drilling into the car’s frame. It’s a non-obtrusive process that can be performed at home with some tools, at Torklift Central in Kent, Wash., or by a Certified EcoHitch Installer. Subaru Forester forum user jsrogers5 agrees – he did the installation at home in two hours flat. Read his feedback below:

Hidden Crosstube – Only the Receiver is Visible
With 97% of Forester vehicles sold in the last 10 years still on the road today1, your 2019 Forester is going to be with you for a while – so you don’t want your hitch to hang below your vehicle ruining the look for years to come. You need a hidden trailer hitch that keeps up with your highly-engineered Subie. All Subaru EcoHitches are precision manufactured to have hidden crosstubes when installed. The only part of the hitch that is ever visible is the receiver which means it has a higher level of ground clearance than most hitches available. Subaru Forester forum member turnkey outlines his ground clearance solution with the 2019 Forester EcoHitch below:
