Trailer Hitch for 2016 Subaru Legacy With the Most Ground Clearance


Need a hitch for a 2016 Suby Legacy 3.6R Limited. Would this hitch give me the most ground clearance or is there a different one that would be better? I need the most room I can get! I will be towing a mobile dog wash trailer. I need to somehow make sure the trailer itself has a slight decline from the tongue to the back of the trailer so the water runs down and out of the back of the trailer.

You're right on the money; the trailer hitch receiver with the most ground clearance for your 2016 Subaru Legacy is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7271. The reason why is how it installs, with the hitch being completely hidden which means the receiver is going to be up higher near the bumper than other hitches.

I have added a photo of this hitch installed, compared to the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75673 and Curt Trailer Hitch # 13390 so you can see the difference.

Since you mentioned you will be towing a trailer you'll also need trailer wiring, the T-One Connector # 118671, and I've added a link to a video showing this harness being installed on a 2016 Subaru Legacy for you to take a look at. You'll also need a ball mount, and I recommend the Ball Mount Kit # 989900.
