Parts Needed To Tow a Small Boat Trailer With a 2004 Subaru Outback Wagon  


I need to put a trailer hitch on my 2004 Subaru Outback. I need it to pull my boat trailer small, 1100 lb boat, which has a 1 7/8 in ball. Will this work? Does it have everything I need to tow, once installed? Can i install it myself? Thanks!


Expert Reply:

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12270 is a confirmed fit for your 2004 Subaru Outback Wagon and it will work to pull a boat trailer. That said, you will need a few other parts to complete your setup which I have listed for you below.

Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C55370
Curt Drawbar part # C45519
Curt Pin and Clip part # F-4
Curt 1-7/8" Hitch Ball part # C40001

In regards to installation of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, this is very simple to do yourself as it is only rated at a 4 out of 10 on the difficulty scale. If you do need help or want to get a better idea if you are capable then you can take a look at the attached install video.
