Comparing Draw-Tite, Curt, and EcoHitch Trailer Hitches for a 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon


Can you please compare the hidden hitches for my 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon? Looking to use one for a bike rack. Thanks!

I'd be more than happy to compare the Draw-Tite # 76227, Curt # C13410, and EcoHitch # 306-X7601 trailer hitches (with the concealed cross tube) for your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon!

All 3 options have the same basic design and the weight ratings exceed that of your '19 Outback Wagon so it really boils down to pricing and construction. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13410 because it has the best welding done at a reasonable price. Curt also tends to put a thicker powder coat finish on their trailer hitches which will do a better job at preventing corrosion in the long run. I have attached an installation video and some photos showing this trailer hitch installed on a similar 2019 Outback Wagon that you can check out.

If you don't already have a bike rack then I highly recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22B because it is a platform wheel-mount bike rack that can carry bikes weighing up to 60 lbs each. These coupled with the ease-of-use features and the integrated bike repair stand make this the best option for the active lifestyle that is becoming a staple for Outback Wagon owners. I have attached a review video of this bike rack on a 2019 Outback Wagon so you can get a great idea of what it looks like on your vehicle.
