    My gen 5 Outback had an OEM hitch installed. It was a 1 1/4“ hitch. I just got one put on my 2021 Outback and was told it’s a 1 1/4” but it’s not. It’s a 2” hitch! Honestly, it’s a lot more robust, but doesn’t the dealer know what they’re installing? Also, I wish they had informed me that it’d...
  2. Towing
    Hey guys! I am trying to add a hitch to a 2021. The main use for the hitch would be for a bike rack. I don't think I’ll be towing anything. One big question I have is would I want a hidden hitch to give me the most clearance for off-roading or lower for protection? What hitch would you guys...

    A previously-unknown company to me, Dirt Complex, recently announced that they are coming out with a new hitch-mounted spare tire carrier, called the Trail Swing. Here's their sales pitch: It has a few notable features. Besides being a swing-out mount, it has quite a bit of adaptability...

    Hey everybody. 2017 2.5i Limited here. Purchasing a tear-drop trailer (Mean Bean) soon, and plan on towing it part time with an Xterra and part time with the Outback. I know it'll be a little heavy for the OB, as it'll weigh about 1800 lbs. May end up trading in for a 2020 XT in a year or so...
  6. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Hi everyone. So I’m posting what’s probably the millionth hitch question on this forum. I’ll be helping a friend transport a 400lb motorcycle with a U-Haul motorcycle trailer, which itself weighs 800lbs and has a built in chock. I’ve got a stock 2016 Outback with a hidden 2” Ecohitch installed...

    I had a Subaru L101SAL013 hitch installed on my 2017 Outback 2.5L thinking that hey, it's factory, surely the engineers know what they are doing so that's going to be my best option. Plus, I wasn't too keen on the aftermarket hitch install on a 2016 I had which required two large holes to be...

    She came with a trailer hitch too as seen in this picture. What you can't see is that both rear fenders have a slight rust problem that I'm intent on fixing.
