This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


Install was very straight forward. It only took me about an hour, video was very easy to follow. Everything fit perfectly and it’s great that the hitch is hidden when not needed on my 2022 Subaru Ascent Touring. Great quality and price!


Performs as expected. My vehicle towing capability is rated at 5000 GVWR. I had no issues when hooking my trailer and hauling a ton and a half load of dirt.



The trailer hitch has been working as expected. I have been able to pull my trailer and loads without any issues.

2022 Subaru Ascent

Easy installation. Just follow the instructions and I would recommend watching the installation video on the website. Very easy install.


Great hitch don’t care for the safety chain hooks on top of the receiver but that is just preference still great hitch and looks factory


This receiver was very easy to install, including removing and reinstalling the body panels from the vehicle.
I would highly recommend this.

2019 Subaru Ascent

I recently purchased a trainer hitch for my 2019 Subaru Ascent. Shipping was incredibly fast. Box came damaged, and I was worried the bolts may have been missing, but no! Even with the giant hole in the box, the instructions and hardware were securely sealed and taped to the receiver. There was a scratch from the shipping damage but it was going to be in an area that was not visible, but that’s on UPS. Everything lined up perfectly start to finish. Instruction pictures were dark but the online tutorial was great! Total time was 90 minutes, most of which was trying to locate and retrieve my torque wrench from a trunk of a locked car with a dead battery. Word of advice, even being only a couple years old, the plastic number fasteners did not all come out nicely. Have some spares on hand. Luckily, my 2005 dormant Subaru used the same bumper fasteners.


I installed this on my Subaru 2020 Ascent. Install was pretty straightforward and took me a couple hours along with the harness. I had a buddy help me but this could be done with 1 person if need be. Hitch has been great. Helped move over 600 miles with a uhaul trailer and no issues.



Used it for an additional move and pulling a trailer off and on for past year. Been great!

2022 Subaru Ascent

Worked out great! The instructional video on the etrailer website made the installation a breeze on my Subaru Ascent. Top. Itch experience.

2019 Subaru Ascent

The hitch was delivered quickly, was reasonably priced, and was crazy simple to install. If it wasn’t for trouble removing my mud flaps this would have taken maybe a half hour to install.


First time I have so quick process of shipping. I installed already. Instructions were straight forward.


It has been about a year since I purchased this hitch for my Ascent. It has been great, it was very easy to install for me. I highly recommend it.

2022 Subaru Ascent

Install on 2022 Subaru Ascent Onyx Edition. Couldn’t be more happy with everything. Delivery was fast, and the install was super easy especially following the instruction video. Everything went smooth from beginning to end. My brother helped and it took us only about 30 minutes. Really happy with the product itself but more importantly this company. Highly recommend. I will definitely be using this company for future needs.


Excellent service
Supposedly this receiver
only fits the 2019 to 2022 Subaru Ascent,
I have a 2023 model and I can confirm that this receiver also fits the 2023 Subaru Ascent.


As advertised, easy to install. Only thing that I didn't care for was the way you attach wiring back on with tie wraps to the receiver.

2020 Subaru Ascent

Great design and installation was a breeze. I did end up watching the video for some tips but the printed directions were easy to follow. (Disclaimer, I work at the Subaru factory here in the US, so I already have a little knowledge of bumper and bumper cover install). That being said, I truly believe that anyone who had a little mechanical knowledge could easily do this job!


Great process. Etrailer provides a very unique and modern way to nicely track the entire process from purchase to shipment. Product received on time and of great quality, would highly recommend.


I've bought Curt hitches from etrailer for every vehicle I owned and this was no different. This is the first time I've purchased and installed this newer style (as opposed to mounting it under the vehicle) and I would NEVER go back if I had the option. This was the easiest install of all time. Quite honestly, removing your bumper is the only part that requires any effort, and still, I had the bumper off, the hitch installed, and the bumper back on in less than an hour, including installing the wiring harness.

I bought it to be able to utilize the Ascent's 5000lb towing capacity, but right now, it's being used for the cargo carrier in my pictures. Couldn't be happier with how it all went. Also, I don't know how necessary it is, but I purchased a torque wrench for this install to be sure I was tightening to manufacturers specifications for peace of mind, which I'd recommend.

Bonus: This got to me in only a few days after ordering, and shipping was free. Can't beat that!


Excellent hitch that is very easy to install. It does fit the 2023 Subaru Ascent. The installation video was really helpful and we were able to complete the install in about 30 minutes.


Fantastic product, and absolutely love the hide-a-way feature on this for the ascent. Install was easy enough but recommend checking out eTrailers guide on it. Easy to follow and with a 2nd set of hands we had it on in less than half the time. Could do solo if needed but would have had a harder time making sure it was centered on my own.

Also recommend the tab removal tool so you don't break any of your plastic tabs getting the wrap off. We keep ours in the glove box to make it easy to pop off that cover and use the hitch anywhere.


This could not have been easier. I’m so glad I didn’t pay someone to install this. Great quality product. The instructions were clear and made for a smooth install. The only thing I forgot was the electrical wiring but I called customer service and Joshua K was extremely helpful in directing me to the harness I would need.

2022 Subaru Ascent

Installation instructions made this a straightforward job, etrailer's how-to video was also super-helpful. Took about 90 minutes including cleaning up and putting away all the tools.

2020 Subaru Ascent

Easy to install - I watched their video through it and had my 12 year old daughter do install it.

2020 Subaru Ascent

Shipping was fast, hitch was good quality, and easy to install. Haven’t towed anything yet, but I’m sure it’ll do what it’s made to do!


Excellent buying experience. Items came quickly and well packaged. I would not hesitate to buy again from this company!!



Working great


I've had this on the 21 Ascent for a year now and have pulled my boat and utility trailer multiple times without problems. The wiring harness and the receiver were both very easy to install. I highly recommend both the receiver and wiring harness.
