Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon - Curt

Today on our 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon, we will be taking a look at and installing the Curt Custom Fit Class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number 13390. We'll give you a few measurements to help you in selecting some hitch accessories, such as ball mounts, bike racks, and cargo carriers. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is going to be about 14". From the center of the pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is going to be about 2 1/2". Here's what our hitch is going to look like once it's installed. It's going to have that nice round bar design and it's going to be nice and sleek against the back end of the vehicle with that black powder coat finish to help prevent any kind of rust and corrosion. With it's fully welded design, it's going to be nice and sturdy, offering a 600 pound tongue weight capacity and 4000 pound towing capacity with it's 2" by 2" receiver tube opening and plate steel design. It's going to have a 5/8" pin hole going straight through the center.

It's design is going to offer a nice almost flush design here on the back end of the vehicle too, which is going to be great for your hitch accessories. Now, let's see how it's installed. First thing we're going to need to do is place a safety strap on the bottom side of our exhaust. We're going to have one hanger here just forward of the rear axle and then two back here, one here, one opposite corner. Lube them up with a little spray lubricant to help you guide them off. Then we'll take a screwdriver, prybar, or if you have a rubber or exhaust hanger removal tool you can use that as well. With the exhaust now lowered, we can drop down that cam buckle just a little bit just to give us a little extra room to work.

Let's go ahead and remove that heat shield now by removing the Phillips head or 10 millimeter screws securing it to the body of the vehicle. There's going to be four of those, two here and two here. We'll pull that off to the side, because we're going to need to trim that later. Go ahead and remove the two rubber plugs on each side, passenger side and the driver's side. This forward most plug towards the front of the vehicle is actually going to be our access point. The rear one here is actually going to expose our rear mounting point for our receiver hitch.

We're going to have to drill and mark another hole right here for the second attachment point on each side. Keep in mind everything we do here on the passenger side is going to be replicated on the driver's side with the exception of the heat shield and the exhaust. Let's use a flat blade screwdriver to pry those plugs out and set them off to the side. You can use multiple different ways to enlarge the hole, whether it's walling out the hole and grinding around with a smaller bit until you get to the size to get the bits through or you can use a hole saw like we're going to do today to an 1 1/8". Now, we'll take a little bit of spray paint and spray our bare metal here, so that way we don't get any rust or corrosion. We'll take the fish wire, which is going to be that coil in here, stick it into our rear most access point for a mounting hole. Then, bring it back down to that hole that we just drilled.

If you need to, you can put a little bit of a bend in it just to help it get towards that hole. Bring the coil then out. Place your block over the top or through and into the hole. Then thread on your carriage bolt to the coil part of the pull wire. Then push it up into the frame and pull it out that rear most point. We'll go ahead and raise that hitch up into position, getting an extra set of hands to help us do so. Guide the fish wires int the rear most holes and put it up into position, making sure not to press in the bolts, but if you do you have those fish wires on to help you along the way. We'll then use the flange nuts to secure our hitch into position, removing the fish wire and placing on our flange nut with the teeth towards the receiver to secure those bolts. Once we have the back two in, we can use the hitch as a template to drill our other holes for our other two bolts. We'll go ahead and hand tighten those down, so they're nice and secure. We'll take our 17/32 drill bit and drill out our hole. Take the fish wire and fish it out our access hole that we drilled to begin with placing your block and your carriage bolt to the side. Pass it through and out the hole.Now we've pulled through our bolt, we can remove that fish wire and place on our flange nut. We'll repeat that process on the other side and then tighten them down. Now that we've got her tight, we'll torque them down to manufacturer's specifications. Now we'll hold our heat shield back up into position. That way we can mark out where we're going to need to trim. Take a paint pen. We're just going to mark the edges. Pull it back down to make a straight line and use a pair of tin snips to trim it. Instead of the four bolts, this is now going to be attached using three. You can always use a different cutting tool if you have one as well. We'll clean our edges up a little bit before we put her back up in. We'll just take a file and brush it off. Hold our heat shield back up into position and fasten it down using the hardware that we removed prior. Now we go ahead and reattach our rubber isolators. Use a little bit of that spray lubricant again and spray the inside of the rubber isolator to help you slide it into position. Lift it up and guide it on. Should be easy enough to where you can just guide them on with your fingers at this point. Remove your safety strap, clean up your area, and you're ready to hit the road. That will do it for our review and our installation of the Curt Custom Fit Class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number 13390 on our 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon.

This is the third Curt hitch I have purchased from All have been very well made and relatively easy to install. With this one, however, I thought I might pass on a couple of recommendations. 1. The instructions which accompany the hitch show only three holes in in the frame rail. There are actually four. Using only the three shown in page 1 of the instructions actually places the hitch 4 inches forward (toward the front of the car) than it actually needs to be. Worse yet, these mounting holes (1/4" in diameter) are the exact distance apart for the hitch, so all one needs to do is enlarge them to 1/2 inch for the bolts, so it is easy to mistakenly mount the hitch in the wrong location. If one views the installation video first, it is less easy to be confused, but still possible. 2. I suggest modifying the instructions to show 4 (four) holes and advise the reader to remove the plugs on the two rear-most (on each side) holes. These are already the correct size for the bolts. Mate the two rear-most holes of the hitch with these holes and after affixing the hitch with two bolts using these holes, drill new holes on each frame rail for the other two (forward) attachment points. Continue the installation as shown in the video. I also suggest modifying the instruction document to reflect the information provided in the video - - it is correct. Thank you for a great product and for great service. 12554

I used this kit on a 2012 Subaru Outback wagon after i got the high price for add-on from the dealer. I viewed the website video, read the instructions and installed it, but in three hours, not 90 minutes. The things i liked were the quality of hardware, good instructions, and the web video. I really liked the bolt snaking tool. The only difference between the 2011 and 2012 is that the muffler is mounted differently, so i had to figure that out myself, but it was pretty easy. The wiring instructions were very good and lead me right to the factory connector. I like the hitch, the quality of the accessory hardware, the bag, and the US flag filler. The only thing i did not like was that the instructions for drilling / enlarging the hole to fish in the bolt seemed to be for smaller bolts than mine and took more time and effort. Again though, i saved $500.00 and this is an excellent kit 33100

Received this hitch in perfect condition in a timely manner. Bit tricky to install but the enclosed innstructions are very clear. I was not too crazy about having to drill holes into the mainframe of a car only 3 weeks old though. Had to patch up the holes with a super quality 3m marine sealant designed for below waterline use. This was to provide a permanent moisture barrier to prevent rust from forming on the freshly cut metal edges. Had the inside rails resprayed with rustproofing compound. Overall, the entire install took me 51 minutes with basic hand tools. I was fortunate that my neighbour has a gargae and provided me with a hoist. Installing this hitch without having the car elevated would be nearly impossible. No pics, sorry. Hands way too dirty to handle a camera. Etrailer has always provided me with exceptional service. They also price matched as per their policy immediately. 11866

Googled trailer hitch 2011 outback. Liked it, web site not working for placing the order so I called. They sent me a hitch that did not match the video I was looking at. After some confusion, I called and was told that I had ordered the wrong part, but the operator was the one who told me what part I needed. Service was bad from etrailer due to this, but they did give me the number to Curts and they were fantastic. Andy was helpful, we drilled a 1 1/8" hole instead of dilling holes by the existing hole and bending back. The dewalt holesaw was great - Lenox brand was not good. Etrailer was very quick on shipping - ordered Tuesday afternoon, got it Thursday, installed Friday. Installation took about 4 hours, but 2 hours of that was figuring that etrailer ordered the wrong hitch. Kinda glad they did, Curts is great! 18917

I think this will serve my purpose. I wish to pull a 4x8 utility trailer with 4-wheeler. My son hopes the bolts are strong enough as intended. I thought the hitch would be more hidden but it will be ok as is. Less expensive than the dealership price. The wiring instructions have it going thru the back and out of the hatch door. Not a good idea so we installed wiring underneath. 49570


I just purchased a 2014 Subaru outback. I need a 2 hitch to haul my bikes. I already have a Hollywood rack that holds 4 bikes and would like to drive the outback some of the time instead of my gas guzzling Toyota Tundra. Recommendations?

-- comment by: MikeM - 07/14/2013


I called up a couple of our manufacturers, and there is no word yet on when hitches will be available for a 2014 Outback. As soon as they do become available, we will add them to our website and they will show up in the Fit Guide. If you are in need of a hitch right away, I would imagine the dealer would have them available but they may be more costly than an aftermarket unit.

I purchased this hitch for our Suburu Outback to be able to tow a small camper. After making the purchase it arrived within a few days, and my son and I had installed by the end of that week. What made this easier was the video to show exactly how to install it and the wiring harness that I got with it. The only problem we had with the installation was drilling through the subframe of the car, I'm thinking sharper drill bits next time. We spent 4 days towing the camper around for a short state park vacation and I have since used it for towing u-haul trailers without any issues. A great product, and thanks to etrailer for providing such informative videos. 404728

The hitch looks great. And by great, I mean that it is very unobtrusive but if you do notice it then you will notice how good it looks. The video instructions were incredible. I wish every product that I bought had instructions like that. The only negative was the stickers they put on the there. One on the front and one on the side. Also I'd rather see it in flat black so the hitch is even less noticeable. After installing this product on my car I can say that I am completely confident that it will outlast my car. It's a big chunk of metal. 9962

I just finished installing my new hitch on my 2011 outback. I am very happy with the results, the hitch fit like a glove and the hardware and instructions are great. I highly recommend watching the instructional video, it is very helpful. Installation took me about an hour using basic tools. the hitch works very well with my bike rack. Thanks again to e-trailer for providing a great product and excellent service at a fair price. 43593

I was very surprised at how well built the hitch is. Very heavy. I only which Subaru would have pre-drilled holes for a hitch. SOA knows that a large part of there customers buy there vechiles for the utility factor. So to not have there vechiles pre-drilled and pre-wired is very poor on there part. 17585

by: Chet01/17/2012

The instructional video was only fair but it installed with no problems. Good quality. Quick delivery. For the etrailer techs, instead of butchering up the frame with chisels, etc., just use a hole enlarging (conical) drill bit and you won't be left with jagged metal. 29863

Product was shipped in a box that was to big. It must have bounced around during shipping and got a fairly deep scratch on it, down to the metal. I'll have to spray it with some rustolium before I install it. Aside from that it came fast with all parts. 10813

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • Comparing Class III Receiver for 2012 Subaru Outback
  • Draw-Tite #75673 has 7 inch distance between the receiver hitch pin hole and the furthest rearward portion of the rear bumper when installed on a 2011 model Subaru Outback Wagon. Although the hitch will attach to the vehicle using existing holes in the frame, a 1-1/8 inch hole saw will be needed to drill an access hole in the frame member on both the driver and passenger side. This hole is necessary in order to feed installation hardware into the frame as shown in the install instructions...

  • Recommended Hitch and Towing Accessories for 2013 Subaru Outback
  • The Draw-Tite # 75673 hitch has a higher towing capacity than the Curt # 13390, but because the vehicle itself is limited to 2700 lbs towing/200 lbs tongue weight, the higher hitch capacity would not be usable. The Curt hitch is less expensive, but has fewer attachment points to the vehicle (total of 4 versus 6 for the Draw-Tite). Because I prefer more attachment points to the vehicle, I would lean toward the Draw-Tite # 75673. Quality-wise, the hitches are comparable. To complete...

  • Which Trailer Hitch Receiver Will Have the Most Ground Clearance For 2011 Subaru Outback
  • Each hitch is positioned to sit tucked up and close to the bumper as you can see on the product page pictures. All of the hitch receivers available for the 2011 Subaru Outback will sit in the same general position with ground clearance varying slightly from each hitch. For example, from the ground to the top of the receiver on the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75673, measures 14-1/2 inches. So you would have approximately 12-1/2 inches from the ground to the bottom of the receiver,...

  • Hidden Hitch no longer manufactures the hitch for your 2010 Subaru Outback, but I will do a comparison for you. Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch were essentially identical in style and capacity. The price of the Hidden Hitch model was higher because the hitch included the manufacturer recommended ball mount and the pin and clip used to secure the ball mount into the receiver.The Draw-Tite hitch is a quality hitch and is available in a Class II, # 36493, or Class III option, # 75673.

  • Trailer Hitch for a Bike Rack on a 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • First, the difference between Curt trailer hitches # C13206 and # 13390 is what vehicles each fits. Both will fit your 2014 Subaru Outback but each can also fit other vehicles so in terms of fitting your vehicle there isn't much difference between them. I would not recommend either one though because Curt requires a stabilization strap # 18050 when using either hitch with a bike rack or cargo carrier per their warranty. Draw-Tite does not have this requirement. The Draw-Tite trailer...

  • Will Thule T2 Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, # TH916XTR Fold Up on a 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • I can tell you that with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75673 installed, it will measure 7 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the distance required to clear the rear bumper on a wagon model of the 2011 Outback. On Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13390, it is potentially less at 4 inches (the measurement was taken on a 2010 model) so it would offer more clearance. On the Thule T2 Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, # TH9044, when in the down position, the rack measures 19 inches from...

  • What is Included with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Part # 13390
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13390 comes with everything you will need for installation except the tools including 4 carriage bolts, 4 hole spacers, 4 hex nuts, and 2 firewire bolt leaders. In order to install this hitch you will need a 10/19 mm socket, 8" extension, ratchet, torque wrench, 17/32" drill bit, rotary tool, and file. If you will be doing any towing with the hitch then you will also need a wiring harness, ball mount, and hitch ball. For a wiring harness I recommend...

  • Sealing Openings During Installation of Curt Trailer Hitch # 13390 On 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • It is not a requirement to fill any holes created during the installation of the Curt Class III 2-Inch Trailer Hitch # 13390 on your 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon. The bolts will be tight enough when the hitch is installed to maintain a tight seal. If you would like to seal the holes, you can use spray paint or aerosol undercoat to spray the bare metal prior to attaching the hitch. You would need to let the spray dry before hitch installation. I have provided links to the installation...

  • Best 2 inch Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • For your 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon I would recommend the Draw-Tite part # 75673 over the Curt Hitch part # 13390 because the Draw-Tite has higher towing capacities and because it does not require the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when used with a non-supported load like bike rack or cargo carrier.

  • How to Prevent the Trailer Hitch from Scraping the Ground on a 2015 Subaru Legacy
  • I do have an option for you but the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13390 on your 2015 Subaru Legacy already has the highest ground clearance (10-1/4") of any other trailer hitch receiver we have confirmed to fit your vehicle. This measurement is taken from the ground to the top of the receiver tube opening on the hitch. Instead of replacing your trailer hitch, I recommend installing a skid wheel like the Ultra-Fab Steel Roller for RVs with 2" Trailer Hitches part # UF48-979020. The...

  • 5 Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Subaru Outback Wagon With Curt Hitch
  • I checked your order notes and you installed the Curt Hitch part # 13390 on your 2013 Subaru Outback Wagon which can carry a 5 bike rack. You should note that Curt requires the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 with this hitch when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. I recommend the Yakima FullTilt 5-Bike Rack, part # Y02463. This rack holds 5 bikes and has a cable lock that secures the bikes to the carrier. This is a tilting rack that allows you access to the...

  • Recommendation For Hitch Mounted Bike Rack And Trailer Compatibility On 2012 Subaru Outback
  • For your Swagman Original 3 Bike Towing Rack for 2" Trailer Hitches - Tilting # S64600 that mounts onto a standard 2 inch ball mount. The base of this bike rack is 3-1/8 inches as you mentioned. This rack does require 10 inches between the center of the hitch pin hole and the center of the hitch ball. The MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop, 6-1/4" Rise - 5,000 lb # MT70068 has a measurement of 8-1/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2016 Subaru Legacy
  • For your 2016 Subaru Legacy Sedan, I recommend going with a Class III trailer hitch. While you may not ever need the higher rated weight capacity of a Class III hitch, the 2 inch receiver opening will allow you to choose from many more hitch-mounted accessories such as bike racks and cargo carriers than that of a 1-1/4 inch receiver on a Class II hitch. I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch # 75673 for a couple of reasons. First, when compared to the Curt Class...

  • Dimensions for Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13390 for 2013 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • I went out to our warehouse to take a few measurements of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13390 referenced in your question. I have attached an image with these dimensions labeled. The total width of the trailer hitch is 25-3/4 inches. The length of the brackets that will attach to your Subaru's frame is 11 inches. The square receiver tube length is 6-1/2 inches. Also, when installing this trailer hitch onto the 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon, there was a measurement of 2-1/2 inches...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon for Thule T2 Bike Carrier
  • On a 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75673 measures 5-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the bumper on a 2012 Subaru Outback. We have not installed the Curt hitch # 13390 on a 2012 model. But on a 2011 it measured 3-1/2 inches, on a 2014 it was 3 inches, on a 2015 it was 3-1/2 inches, and on a 2010 it was 4 inches. Based on all of this information it would seem the Curt hitch would be the best option. The only catch is that Curt says you...

  • Which Trailer Hitch Receiver is Better for the Thule T2 Classic to Fit on 2013 Subaru Outback
  • When we installed the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75673 on a 2013 Subaru Outback it measured 5-1/2 inches from the hitch pin hole to the outside edge of the bumper. I went out to our warehouse and measured the two hitches and the Curt # 13390 sits about 2-1/2 inches further towards the rear of the vehicle. So you're correct that the Draw-Tite's receiver tube sits further under the bumper. The Thule T2 Classic # TH9044 that you have measures about 12 inches from hitch pin hole...

  • Curt Trailer Hitch Fit for 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • For your 2016 Subaru Outback the Curt hitch that is confirmed to fit is the Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13206. This hitch is confirmed to fit the Subaru Outback from 2014-2016. I have attached an installation video of this hitch on a 2014 Outback for you. The other Curt hitch you referenced # 13390, is designed to fit the 2010-2013 Outback and the 2015-2016 Subaru Legacy. The # C13206 requires a stabilization strap, # 18050, for all non-trailer loads such as bike racks and...

  • Class III Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Subaru Outback and MaxxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier
  • Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 75673 will actually be perfect for your 2013 Subaru Outback and MaxxTow cargo carrier # MT70108. With the hitch installed it measures approximately 5-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the rear bumper. The cargo carrier measures 8-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier. That means this is approximately 3 inches between the back of the Outback and the carrier. That 3 inches is plenty...

  • Curt Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • For a Curt hitch that is confirmed to fit your 2013 Subaru Outback I would recommend the Curt hitch # 13390. The Curt Trailer Hitch # C122703 that you referenced is designed for older model Outbacks and would not be the correct hitch for you.

  • Trailer Hitch and Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • In a towing setup your towing capacity is always the lowest rated component as that is the weakest link. The hitch manufacturers we carry like to make hitches that are a bit stronger than needed but that does not give the vehicle any more towing capacity than it has. None of the hitches we offer for your 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon are rated for weight distribution either. The Curt hitch part # 13390 is a confirmed fit though that would work well if you stay under capacity. You will...

  • Fixing Excessive Sway when Using Curt Trailer Hitch 13390 on a 2012 Subaru Outback
  • I am not sure what you mean. The hitch itself should not be swaying at all. If you are talking about trailer sway while towing then the aerodynamic differences between the vehicles could the reason for the trailer to sway more with one vehicle than another. You would only need a friction sway bar, # 83660, and ball mount bracket # RP26003 for 2 inch hitches to stop the sway. If you have a bike rack or cargo carrier with excessive movement then a simple anti-rattle device such as # 93347...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Subaru Legacy for Use with a Bike Rack
  • The difference is what vehicles each of those hitches will fit. Trailer hitch # C13206 fits 2014 to 2016 Subaru Outbacks. And # 13390 fits the 2015 to 2016 Legacy and 2010 to 2013 Outback. So if you have a 2016 Legacy use # 13390. But if you choose this hitch then Curt says that you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using the hitch with a bike rack to comply with their warranty. What I recommend is the Draw-Tite hitch # 75673. It does not require that strap and it costs...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Subaru Outback Wagon to Use a Thule Apex 5 Bike Rack
  • If you had a Curt Hitch part # 13390 installed on your 2013 Subaru Outback Wagon the Thule Apex 5 Bike Rack part # TH9026 would work well for you without interference. With this hitch Curt recommends the use of a stabilizer strap. Their official recommendation is that all non-trailer loads - bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth - should be supported with stabilizing straps. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from CURT. For that you would need...
