Does Bumper have to be Cut to Install Curt Trailer Hitch C13382 on a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek


# C13382 for 2018 Crosstrek My question is if the bumper must be cut to install this unit, or will the unit sit under the bumper?

The rear fascia/bumper on your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek does NOT have to be trimmed, cut, or modified to install Curt trailer hitch # C13382. I have included a link below to the installation instructions for you to view.

I checked with Curt and they list trailer wiring harness # C56040 as the correct wiring harness for your 2018 Crosstrek.

I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
