Fits perfect. No issues. No altering. Just put it on. My crosstrek is a 2019 model and fits perfectly. Hitch is hidden , all you can see is 2inch reciever. Like it alot. 571507

I really like the way this hitch tucks up behind the bumper except the actual receiver box. It gives a clean look for our vehicle. The design allows you to install it without dropping the exhaust or anything. The only negative point is that the hardware does not fit in the access hole, so some grinding and touch up paint was required. 466699


Comments
Denise, The Curt Hitch C13382 for the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek does require filing or enlarging the access holes in your frame. We do not recommend grinding the hardware of the hitch or the hitch itself because it can affect the structural integrity of the part.

Received the trailer hitch and it was as described. The installation instructions were plain. As I am 77 years old and four years past getting a pacemaker followed by a four by-pass open chest surgery, I elected to go by your instructions to let a experienced shop install it. Five years ago I ordered one like this and was able to install it per installations on my then vehicle with no trouble. It looked and worked as described. I am well pleased with the products. 523372

I had this professionally installed by a local shop and they told me the fitment is great and it's easy to install (with the right tools and a helping hand). I like how most of it is kind of hidden behind the bumper. 439785

I couldn't be happier with this receiver which fit perfectly on my 2018 Crosstrek. The mounting kit comes with everything you need. It came very well packaged w/o any scuffs or damage. While I was able to install it alone in about an hour, it should be very quick and easy with two people. I was also able to install it without having to lift the vehicle. Enlarging the holes was easier than I expected, as I wasn't sure the exact thickness or durability of the frame from the video. I ended up using a round 10x3/8 inch file to carve a channel similar to the one in video. There was sufficient room to file the opening and there was enough travel to let the file cut quickly. After that, it's really pretty easy to align into place. Do note, the exhaust piping does block the alignment holes more so on the driver's side than the passenger side. While tight, there is still enough space to do your work. You may want to loosely fasten the nuts on this driver's side first, as the passenger side has more room to move and swing the receiver into place. Wait to tighten all the nuts after you've got them all started to allow for any adjustments. I was also able to leave the guide wires attached to the bolts until I was ready to put on the nuts to avoid them getting pushed back up into the frame while aligning it. I'm really happy with the profile aspect of this receiver. It's a very clean look. I highly recommend it. The installation video by etrailer.com was very well done and really influenced my decision to order from them. They were very helpful on the phone to. Great customer service all around. 476295

First off, I really appreciate your follow up email. Its a true sign of great customer service! Also, I have to commend you and your team for the time and effort you put into your installation videos. Honestly, its the reason I decided to purchase from you. I believe it makes your site standout from the rest of the purchasing options available online. The products have been holding up perfectly! Not long after I purchased and installed the new equipment I took a road trip from Mississippi to Colorado to visit some friends and do some mountain biking! The only downside was that the rack I purchased from you did cause me to purchase a new bike during the trip!

Purchased this Curt Class III hitch along with a Thule Vertex 4 bike rack for my 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. The installation was only about 45 minutes, thanks to the excellent installation videos that etrailer.com provides on their website. Disclaimer: I have installed two other hitches myself (Honda Fit and Honda Odyssey, both also purchased from etrailer.com in the last 5 years), so it was not my first rodeo, and I was familiar with running the wires through the frame to run the bolts and washers, widening some of the frame holes with a Dremmel (just slightly), and being careful not to push the bolts back into the frame when threading the nuts. Installing the hitch on a 2018 Crosstrek by yourself is a bit awkward, since you have to be on your back holding the hitch up with one hand while threading the wires through the frame and then threading nuts with the other hand (having a second person makes it a lot easier). But, the high ground clearance gives you plenty of room without jacking up the car, and I did not have to loosen the exhaust or anything like that. The only snag in my install was that I broke a socket when torquing the four nuts, and had to run to the hardware store to get a replacement 3/4 socket. One thing to be aware of: the instructions list a pretty hefty target torque on the four mounting nuts; If you go with the recommended torque rating mentioned in the printed instructions, you may have to search around for a torque wrench that can measure torque that high (you don't want to guess on the torque). 518964

Everything about the ordering process was exceptionally well handled, incl. the 110% price program........the only suggestion I would have is that eTrailers might consider mentioning that, due to the size and weight of the hitch(s), customers might be alerted that the hitches may be received with scratches or whatever due to the fact that the hitches are delivered to eTrailers on pallets NOT cartons.....therefore, some surface blemishes are normal and not a problem. Otherwise, I am TOTALLY happy with my purchase from eTrailer and expect to be back for accessories once the weather warms up and I can do my install! 469598


Comments
We’ve used the Curt hitch lightly last year because we had a long run of abnormal heat and humidity up in New England were we reside……. We also purchased a pair of new road bikes only to use them twice!!! This year, we’re investigating getting a small sail boat which will, however, make the hitch more functional so I’ll be back to you as the winter ends to investigate the plugin tail lamp harness………IF we really do get the seal boat.

Very good product. Hitch fits nice and tucks up under the bumper for a clean look. The install was simple and right to the point. The video from the web page was a good tool to view especially when opening the fwd holes up for the install. I used a hand file and it worked great. I did remove the muffler just for the extra elbow room and because there was limited space on the driver's side to get to the mounting area. Total install took about 1.5 hr 573056

I'm beyond excited about this product. I had originally ordered the Draw-tite 2" hitch and the day before installing, decided to order the Curt hitch instead. Primarily I didn't want to look at the visible cross bar on the Draw-tite, but another big reason was the difference in mounting hardware. The hardware included with the Curt is SO much more confidence inspiring that that included with the Draw-tite. The metal plates that slide up into the frame of the car were clearly designed with different ideas in mind. Draw-tite included plates that only prevented the bolts from spinning, while Curt included plates that are double the thickness, and clearly designed to provide a great deal of pressure distribution inside the frame of the car. Additionally the bolts are 7/16" dia on the Draw-tite. while they are 1/2" on the Curt, which is why you need to file a notch into one of the entry holes. These extra touches may be completely overkill, but I sure appreciate the attention to detail. 543773

Excellent product and service. The product arrived ahead of time and included everything needed for the installation (no additional hardware needed) Because of the position of the hitch once installed, it provides firm support to the rear bumper which is a pretty soft plastic with thin plastic brackets. It doesn't affects the look of the car since the only part visible is the receiver. The only issue I have is that all the bolts provided are the same length, and while the length is plenty appropriate for the rear attachment points, the use of the provided spacers for the front barely provide enough tread to have the nuts all the way in. 505182


Comments
Firstly, the spacers you mentioned only need to be used if the hitch mounting flange doesnt sit flat against the underside of the frame member. If they are not needed, they shouldnt be used. Secondly, when properly torqued, the bolts should show 1 thread protruding from the nut at the very least. If the bolt is flush with, or is recessed in the nut, it hasnt grabbed enough threads. If it hasnt grabbed enough threads, its possible that the square portion of the carriage bolt isnt seated properly in the square washer up in the frame member. If thats the case, you can unscrew the nut, push the bolt up slightly and turn the bolt by hand so itll seat correctly.

I bought this Curt trailer hitch receiver for my 2018 Subaru Crosstrek because of its clean appearance and easy installation. It took me a little less than 2 hrs. to get it and the T-One wiring harness installed, working at a very deliberate pace and checking the excellent etrailer videos frequently. I didn't have to jack up the car, and didn't need an extra set of hands. Could not be happier with the hitch and the fast, free shipping I received from etrailer. Highly recommended! 558450

Perfect fit on ‘18 Crosstrek. Very well made and designed hitch. I like that it has only the receiver box visible, and crossbars hidden. Easy installation, just make sure to follow directions carefully for the “fishwires”. Very happy with my purchase! 495754

I am very happy with the product, I appreciated the suggestions from the etrailer representative. I like how the receiver tucks away nicely under the vehicle. The video link for the install was very helpful and made the install relatively simple. As you can see by the photos I also Purchased a bike rack which I am very please with as well. I am a very satisfied customer 638614

After looking at the Curt and Drawtite hitches, I decided to go with the Curt hitch because it appeared to be more concealed under the car and I did not need the increased tow capacity of the Drawtite hitch. I placed my order on a Tuesday afternoon and my hitch was delivered on Friday, which was awesome. Installation was straightforward and easy as described on Etrailers website, I took my time and even spray painted around the holes that needed to be enlarged to get the bolts in the frame. Total install was 1hr 15 min. Very happy with fit and look. 563424

Fittment was good, 1 bolt was defective I had to get a replacement from the hardware store. Not that big a deal. I chose to remove the bumper to access the holes rather than grind a slot in the frame. It took 20 min to disassemble, 30 min to reassemble. As usual another great product from e- trailer. 518127

It arrived in a box. There were two holes in the box, where the bolted to car parts were scuffed as they must have been dragged around during delivery. I filed them just to remove burrs. The center receiver (visible after installed) was well packaged and avoided any damage. I grinded the hole into the car frame to allow fishing bolts and spacers into the car with the pictured tool. It was less material removal than I feared. But be careful you make the hole large enough for both spacer and the bolt, because I had trouble fishing the bolt in one hole that was just shy of the right size. A light hammering helped it in. But I made sure the hole was big enough before putting away the air tool. I did not need to lower the muffler, but it was much easier to wiggle the thing into place with the fished wires with my wife assisting. It only took 10 minutes of her time. From raising the car onto jackstands, installing the hitch receiver, to lowering it, I was done in 2 hours. 476939

I bought and installed the hitch(bar is out of sight receiver is seen when not in use) and the vehicle specific Wiring Harness (plug n play). I watched a install video of this being installed on my new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. After seeing how easy it was to install I ordered the things needed and in less then 48 hours they were delivered to my front door. I did the install by myself and followed the install video instructions. I took extra steps to run the wiring by removing the muffler heat shield so I could route the wiring out the spare tire drain hole. Resealed the drain plug and mounting hardware with Rubber undercoating spary. This. Whole Kit and the video’s are top of the line. The fish wires for the mounting hardware is a very nice add and makes it very easy to install this hitch. I managed OK by myself but it would definitely be nice to have a helper when it comes to raising the hitch into place for bolting it to the frame. I am very impressed with the thought and attention to detail this company did with this Hitch, wiring harness and install videos. I would not hesitate to do this same purchase again and highly recommend it. There were several hitch options and price points to for me to choose from for my 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. 489393

  • Hidden Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Carrying Bikes with a 2019 Subaru Crosstrek
    We do have some trailer hitches with that hidden crosstube look you are wanting for your 2019 Subaru Crosstrek. For a standard trailer hitch where the receiver is permanently in place I recommend the Curt # C13382 but if you are wanting a removable receiver then you will need to go with the premium EcoHitch # 306-X7365. Both of these trailer hitches are great for carrying a bike rack. The only big difference is the removable receiver on the EcoHitch. I have attached pictures of both...
