For your 2017 Subaru Forester, between the Curt Ball Mount # C45030 and Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 2923, I recommend the Draw-Tite # 2923.

I like the Draw-Tite because not only does it come with a pin and clip (the Curt does not and would need Pin and Clip # PC3), but it is longer by about 1 inch, so you have a bit of extra clearance. That can come in handy with your Forester when towing with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13144, which is recessed under the bumper.

The Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 2923 will work with the 1-7/8" Hitch Ball # 19261, and while the mount does come with the aforementioned pin and clip, you can lock it to your Subaru with the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98880.

Finally, since you are towing you will also need a 4-way for your 2017 Subaru Forester and the correct part for that is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C56040.
