  1. Towing & Hauling
    Pictures and opinions on double, platform bike rack? We have a Thule on order (with Subaru - part # SOA567B060), and I assumed it was a top-rated brand, but as I'm reading reviews across the internet, I am underwhelmed. I would be grateful for your opinions and pictures of what has worked for you.
  2. Towing & Hauling
    I would like to install a Hitch on my Outback 2012 25i. I have watched a few youtube on DIY, especially on the UHaul version. Also, there are a few off Amazon. However, I would like to see if anyone has a good recommendation of brand/model# to help me out since I know the Exhaust pipe needs to...

  4. For Sale / For Free
    I have had this tire carrier for just under year, purchased in November of 2020 for $475 (it now sells for $500). It's held up great and for the cost, you can't beat it. I'm looking to sell it because my family only has one car now and it's not convenient for my wife to access the hatch. Will...

    Can anyone confirm if the OEM trailer hitch that fits an Outback wilderness, is a class 2 or class 3 hitch with either a class 2 or class 3 receiver option? And if the OEM hitch is class 2, does an aftermarket exist in class 3 that matches the dimensions and design of the OEM hitch with a class...

    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...
  7. Towing & Hauling
    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...

  10. Towing & Hauling
    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...
  11. 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...
  12. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    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...
  13. Towing & Hauling
    Hey, I recently purchased a 2017 2.5i premium outback and am thinking of selling my truck. My question revolves around towing/sag. I am planning on installing a Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Reciever - Class III 2" on it which has a max tongue weight of 600lb...
  14. Back side.

    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.
