GET THE OEM CONTAINER. NOTHING ELSE.

TRAILER CONTROLS
Just a few reminders – for ANY The latest Subie model (and EVERYTHING model years built in SGP), there is only ONE series of trailers that:

.
THAT SERIES IS THE SUBARU OEM LIMIT

No. market fixation meets these requirements.
.

Check out the photos:

  1. First drawing is OEM Outback Wilderness.
    • It does NOT use bumper nuts as a mounting point.
    • Uses deep frame mounting points built into the frame rails.

  2. Secondly drawing is OEM Forester Wilderness.
    • It does NOT use bumper nuts as a mounting point.
    • Uses deep frame mounting points built into the frame rails.

  3. Third pic (image) is the OEM hitch mount.
    • It does NOT use bumper nuts as a mounting point.
    • Uses deep frame mounting points built into the frame rails.
    • The OEM bezel bezel mounts are MASSIVE (that’s them, laying on their SIDES, in the bottom middle of the photo)

LITERALLY NOTHING ELSE it is properly designed to connect to the designed connection points on the frames of the Subaru Global Platform.

An aftermarket problem SEEMS similar, but it is NO. Do NOT be fooled by it. COMMUNICATION SITES ARE NOT ASSEMBLY POINTS.

The rest don’t even look similar in design.

There’s a reason OEM costs a little more. It’s built right, it has extra support inside the frame, it has a lot more attachment hardware, it’s heavier.
.
“What about the tow hitch on the crash beam? If that works, then why wouldn’t it hook up the same way?”
The towing cap that mounts to the crash beam is a limited use, limited duty (a few feet to under 20 miles) SHAFT PULL, EMERGENCY USE hook It is not designed to pull over 20 mph or over 20 miles. It is not a recovery point. It is not designed to hold DOWN force (such as the weight of a trailer tongue), or side force (the impact of a trailer being bumped and swayed, or a tongue-loaded weight being forced to change direction). It’s not remotely the same.
.

ALSO KEEP:
Tongue weight limits and draw weight limits are ALWAYS LOWER of all assessments. No shocks or other equipment will increase the drag rating or tongue weight limit of the Ascent. Other devices can only reduce it or keep it the same.

In summary
There are words only A hitch series that is indeed a properly integrated towing solution – and that’s it OEM.

Absolutely anything to the contrary, to this day, is completely incorrect.

If you’re planning to tow, choose the only hitch that’s built with your safety, the safety of others, and the structure of your vehicle in mind. Anything that uses bumper nuts does NOT do this.

CHOOSE WISELY.

IN REAL LIFE
Many times, I have said that bumper nuts were never intended to take a shock or carry the weight of a trailer tongue.

Here is the same type after market shock like those for the Ascent, attached the same way to an Outback Wilderness and various other Gen 6 Outbacks (on the bumper nuts).

First, it bends the rear of the car in that crumpled area that holds the crash bar.

This can’t happen too many times before something breaks. And if you have to do emergency braking, things can get ugly.

THEN, it cracks the welds and destroys the car.
Like in this 2020 Outback.

Note the “hitch” (bumper) bolts that attach directly above the arrow. The guy lost the other broken welds (two, at the end of the same part).

TOLDJASO.
