Does Hitch e98839 Fit 2014 Subaru Forester with Single Exhaust


I have a 2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i. Would like to verify that this hitch fits my single exhaust car and was wondering if the manufacture is Curt?

Yes and yes, the hitch part # e98839 that you referenced does fit your 2014 Subaru Forester with a single exhaust and also is manufactured by the American hitch manufacturer Curt.

I attached a picture of this hitch installed on a similar Forester with single exhaust as well as an install video for you to check out too.

The best trailer wiring option is then the Tekonsha kit part # 118467 which is very easy to install and comes with a very reliable converter box. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in 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 include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
