  • Recommended Roof Rack and Canoe Carrier for 2005 Subaru Forester w/ Flush Mounted Roof Rails
  • Yakima makes a reasonably priced roof rack consisting of the following parts: 48 inch round crossbars, part # Y00408 Yakima RailGrab Towers, part # Y00138 The crossbars would clamp directly to the flush rails on the roof of your Forester. To carry the canoe, I'd recommend the Yakima KeelOver Rooftop Canoe Carrier, part # Y04069. The kit includes the mounts that attach to the crossbars, as well as straps to secure the canoe to the crossbar and bow and stern tie-down ropes.

  • Hitch And Bike Rack For 2002 Subaru Forester
  • For your 2002 Subaru Forester, I recommend having a hitch installed and then a platform-style bike rack. A platform-style rack would be much easier to load and unload, and many customers use them because it is many times difficult to reach the top of a vehicle to secure bikes. The hitch I recommend for your Forester is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 36311. This is a Class ll hitch and has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. The bike rack I recommend is the SportRack 2 Bike Rack,...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Between the two you referenced I would go with the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670 over the Thule Doubletrack part # TH990XT for the simple fact that the Swagman weighs 33 lbs and the Thule weighs 47. The XTC2 is one of our best selling and highly rated hitch racks we offer. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • How Hard is it to Install a Class II Trailer Hitch on a 2008 Subaru Outback Wagon

  • Comparing Thule T2 and Saris Freedom SuperClamp Hitch Bike Racks for 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek
  • The biggest difference between the Thule T2, # TH917XTR and the Saris Freedom SuperClamp, # SA4025 is how much each weighs. The T2 has a shipping weight of 56 pounds. But the SuperClamp has a shipping weight of 36 pounds. That 20 pound difference may not seem like much but when you are moving around a large bike rack it does make a huge difference. Both racks cost about the same and both will fit Class I and II trailer hitches. The T2 can tilt and fold but the SuperClamp cannot. The...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2009 Subaru Impreza Hatchback
  • Trailer wiring harness # 56061 is for Sedan models of the 2009 Subaru Impreza. For your hatchback you can use T-connector harness # C56111. Or you can use hardwire harness # 46255. Considering the T-connector is easier to install and costs less than the hardwire option I would go with it, # C56111. I have linked a video showing how it installs.

  • Parts Needed to Install a 7-Way on a 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • If you are looking for a way to 7-way trailer wiring on your 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon you will first need to start with a 4-way. For that you will want the part # C56040. (see install video). Now if your trailer doesn't have brakes all you would need to convert this to a 7-way would be the part # 37185. If you do need a 7-way because your trailer has trailer brakes you would instead need the part # ETBC7. This comes with a length of loom. For a brake controller I would recommend...

For a smaller box I would recommend the Thule Sonic L part # TH634B. I also attached another video for this box. For something in between those two sizes the Thule Pulse XL part # TH615.

  • J-Pin Locking Hitch Pin is Too Large to Fit Allen Bike Rack on a 2013 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The main part of the J-pin lock # 63201 should be a 5/8 inch diameter and fit in the larger hole on the trailer hitch. The standard size diameter pin for a Class III bike rack and hitch is 5/8 inches. If the bike rack you have uses a threaded pin or fits both 1-1/4 and 2 inch trailer hitches then the pin hole would be smaller and you would have to use the pin that came with the bike rack.

  • No Power to Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2013 Subaru Outback
  • The first thing you will want to check is the in line fuse on trailer wiring harness # 118467. If it is blown or missing that could be the root of the problem. Installing this harness can be a little tricky if the vehicle has factory backup sensors. Make sure you are plugging it in at the correct locations. I have included a picture that should help. To test the harness you will use your test light and test the wires going into the converter from the vehicle. If there is no power...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2010 Subaru Forester
  • I do recommend going with a 2 inch trailer hitch for your 2010 Subaru Forester. A 2 inch trailer hitch is not only stronger with a higher capacity but it also will afford you more options for accessories such as bike racks and cargo carriers. For a 2 inch hitch I recommend Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87493. With it you will not have to use a stabilization strap for your bike rack like you would with the comparable Curt hitch. I have included a link to the right to a video showing installation...

  • 3 Bike Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Subaru Forester
  • There are several 3 bike trunk mounted bike rack options we carry that are confirmed to fit your 2014 Subaru Forester. (see link to the right) The one that stands out is the Thule Raceway 3 Bike Rack part # TH9002XT. What makes this rack far superior to the others is the attachment system. It uses 4 retractable coated steel cables to attach to the vehicle rather than 6 nylon straps like other racks. This makes installation quick and easy and the cables also last longer. The cables...

  • Can Factory Trailer Hitch on 2015 Subaru Forester be Removed to Install a Class II Trailer Hitch
  • If the factory hitch on the 2015 Subaru Forester is indeed welded on then you would have to have it professionally removed because it would have to be cut off of the vehicle. And even then, depending on where it was attached to the vehicle you may not be able to install an aftermarket hitch. This is something you would have to have a professional installer take a look at prior to purchasing a hitch. Sometimes, when an OEM hitch is welded on the vehicle, it's a structural component of...

  • Platform Style Bike Rack For Fat Bikes Recommendation
  • The Swagman XTC-2, part # S64670, can accommodate bike wheels up to 2-1/2 inches wide. Since the wheels on a fat bike are typically much wider that that, your bike would not work with the XTC-2. We do have a bike rack that will work for you. I recommend the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2-Bike Rack for Fat Bikes, part # HR200-FB. This is a platform-style rack that will work in either 1-1/4 or 2 inch receivers. This carrier has a shank rise of 5 inches and will handle bike wheels up to...

Both racks include heavy-duty straps and bow/stern tie-downs. Be sure you check the weight capacity of your vehicle's roof and roof rack to ensure you do not overload your...

  • Bumper Clearance of Hidden Hitch # 87568 When Installed on 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The hitch manufacturers don't collect hitch pin hole to bumper clearance distance information for given vehicles, which is a darn shame in my opinion. It would be very easy for them to record this information when they do their test fits, and would make life easier for everybody. Sigh. When we installed the Hidden Hitch # 87568 on a 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon, we found the clearance distance to be 7 inches. I can't explain the differences in the 2010-2014 Outback dimensions, but perhaps...

  • Choosing Between Thule Sonic and Hyper XL Roof Mounted Cargo Boxes for 2013 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • For a first step, you'll want to determine if either or both boxes would install on your vehicle roof without interfering with your ability to fully open the rear hatchback. If your Outback has a roof rack with crossbars, you'll need to slide them as far forward as possible if they're adjustable. Then measure from the center of the bar rearward until you reach the seam between the roof and the to hatch opening. If this distance is greater than 50-7/8 inches, either box would fit just fine...

You will plug the adapter into your existing 4-way. If you want to use the other functions you will need to hardwire the remaining four wires. Here's how.

For trailer wiring you would want the # 56146KIT, for a ball mount part # C45022, 1-7/8 inch ball # C40001, 2 inch ball # C40018, pin and clip # F-4.

  • Which Trailer Hitch Receiver Has Most Ground Clearance On 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon

All of the hitch receivers available for the 2014 Subaru Outback will sit in the same general position with ground clearance varying slightly from each hitch. Other factors include how much tread you have on your tires and how well the tires are inflated.

You would want the Curt Hitch part # C13144. For trailer wiring you would want the Curt Harness part # C56040. For ball mounts I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag.

  • Will Thule Sonic XXL Cargo Box Fit a 2011 Subaru Outback with Factory Roof Rack
  • The Thule Sonic XXL cargo box # TH636B will physically mount to the factory crossbars on your 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon. But to determine if there will be any hatch interference you will need to take one measurement. First if the crossbars on the vehicle can be adjusted, move the front bar as far forward as it will go. This measure from the center of the bar straight back to the seam between the top of the hatch and the roof. If that measurement is greater than 54-3/4 inches then the...

  • Hitch Availability for 2014 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid
  • Hitch manufacturers can sometimes take time to engineer and test a hitch design for a new model vehicle like your 2014 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid because of limited access to that particlular version. However, according to my contact at two hitch makers the relatively limited demand for the hybrid version of the Crosstrek means that development of a hitch that fits it is not really a commercially viable proposition, at least not at this point. For limited-demand vehicles the cost of R&D and...

If you're planning on doing some light duty towing, you'd want a hitch that includes the drawbar. The Hidden Hitch # 60303 is identical to the Draw-Tite hitch, except for the inclusion of the drawbar. If it is a WRX or WRX STi model with the quad tip exhaust, you'd want to use the Curt Class I, part # C11120. If you want the drawbar included, use part # C111203. For the Curt model,...

  • Adapter to Use 2 Inch Bike Rack in Factory 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch on 2015 Subaru Outback
  • You would have to use adapter # HTAD. But please note that the use of an adapter reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. The combined weight of the rack and the bikes cannot exceed the reduced tongue weight. The other issue is that if the factory 1-1/4 inch hitch on your 2015 Subaru Outback is a Class I, you are limited to just 2 bikes because a Class I hitch cannot take the stress of additional bikes. It puts too much torque on the hitch, like using a...

The Swagman Roof Bike Rack # S64720 will fit crossbars that are up to 3-1/8 inches wide by 1-7/8 inches tall. If your bars are smaller than that this rack would fit.

For a hitch I would recommend the Hidden Hitch part # 60303, this comes with a ball mount and a pin and clip, for a hitch ball I would recommend the part # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball or part # 19258 for a 2 inch ball.

  • My technical contact at Curt assured me that removing the heat shield when installing the Curt hitch # C13144 on your 2015 Subaru Forester will not cause damage to your vehicle. The law mandating the heat shield requirement was originally geared toward muscle cars when they got too hot and gas can spill out and catch the backside of the vehicle on fire. Since then, gas tanks have multiple layers of protection and the heat build up in a regular versus muscle car are drastically different....

  • 4-Bike Hitch-Mount Rack Recommendation for 2005 Subaru Outback Wagon with 2-Inch Class III Hitch
  • We do offer racks that meet almost all of your criteria, but the one feature that does not go along with all the others is the capability to be used on the back of a trailer. Items mounted to the rear of a trailer, such as a bike rack, are subjected to forces that are more severe than those found at the rear of an auto. Bike racks for use on trailers and RVs must be specially made to withstand these forces. Generally, more bike/weight capacity in a rack does tend to mean more rack weight...

  • Can Trunk Mount Bike Racks be Installed, Removed, and Reinstalled As Needed on 2011 Subaru Forester
  • You assume correctly. You can remove a trunk mount bike rack, such as the Thule Passage # TH910XT, and store it inside the vehicle and then reinstall it later. On a rack like the Passage you will just have to loosen the straps some to remove them from where they are attach to the vehicle. Then you would just place the hooks in the correct places and tighten the straps again to reinstall the rack. However, if your Forester has that top spoiler or trim piece at the top of the hatch then...

  • The Thule Passage 2 trunk mount bike rack # TH910XT is listed as a fit for your 2011 Subaru Outback. However, if your Outback has that top spoiler or trim piece at the top of the hatch then I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2. This rack has an additional upper arm piece that moves the top straps up and over that spoiler so no weight is put on it (since the spoiler is not meant to support weight). I have included a link to a video that shows how it works. If...

  • Carrying 4 Bikes on a 1998 Subaru Legacy Wagon with 1-1/4 Inch Class II Trailer Hitch
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1400 is designed for 2 inch trailer hitch only. There are no 4-bike platform style bike racks that will work with a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch at this time. To carry 4 bikes with the 1-1/4 inch hitch on your 1998 Subaru Legacy Wagon you will need to first make sure you have a Class II hitch. Since you mentioned that you do have a Class II hitch you can use a hanging bike rack. I have included a link to the 4-bike racks that will fit Class II hitches...

  • 2009 Subaru Outback Hitch Recommendation for a Yakima Ridgeback 4 Bike Rack
  • I would go with the Hidden Hitch part # 87446. This is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch opening that would work great with your Yakima Ridgeback 4 bike rack part # Y02458. I attached an install video. Anytime there is a 2 inch hitch option available for a vehicle we recommend that over a 1-1/4 inch hitch as the 2 inch hitch will have higher capacities and offer more flexibility for future hitch accessories as more things are made for 2 inch hitches. With that being said, if the only thing...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2006 Subaru Forester for Use with Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier
  • The hitch options for your 2006 Subaru Forester are all 1-1/4-inch Class II types and among them is the Curt # C12038 which does require you to use their stabilizing strap # 18050. The other hitches do not require you to use the strap but certainly it is not a bad idea to help support any cargo load and hitch with a strap like the Curt or something similar. The Curt hitch is the most cost-effective of all options and rewards you with a slightly higher weight capacity of 350-lbs versus...

Both will install in the same manner using their included hardware and the time and effort required is essentially the same for both. Given this, I suggest you opt for the 2-inch Class III hitch. A 2-inch Class III hitch is stronger and will have the flexibility to allow broader use than a 1-1/4-inch...

The only roof baskets that we carry that do not require crossbars are the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 rooftop cargo baskets like part # SPS4550-1101.

  • Will Yakima SkyBox 16 # Y07196 Interfere With Fully Opening Rear Hatch of 2013 Subaru Outback

If the crossbars on the vehicle are adjustable, move the front bar all the way forward. Then, measure from the center of that bar rearward to the seam between the roof and the hatch. If this distance is greater than 52 inches, the Yakima SkyBox Pro 16 would fit without interfering with your ability to open your rear hatch fully. Thule offers the Pulse...

But in this case, they do fit. So the HoldUp, # Y02445, is the best option. I still strongly advise the use of stabilization strap # 18050 to relieve some of the stress on the trailer hitch.
