Carrying 1-1/4" Accessory with 2" EcoHitch on A 2016 Subaru Legacy  


I am looking of an EcoHitch for my 2016 Subaru Legacy. I went on your website and saw you have an EcoHitch part number 306-X7271 2inch receiver that would fit my car. My question to you is do you sell a EcoHitch that would fit my 2016 Legacy that has a 11/4inch receiver?

From your information it seems like you may have a 1-1/4" shank on an accessory you would like to use, and you probably like the EcoHitch for it's mostly hidden design. We do not have any brand hitch that is equally hidden and in the 1-1/4" receiver size, however I have a solution for you.

You can install the 2" EcoHitch # 306-X7271 to gain the hidden attribute you like and then install the all-steel Brofy BROPHY # HT02 hitch adapter. I have included a link to the HT02 product page and a video demonstration. This adapter includes a hitch pin and clip. (Keep in mind that using any type of hitch adapter reduced the hitch capacity by 50%.)

I would choose to go the 2" route as the larger connection area will be more rigid when traveling with accessories like bike and cargo racks, not to mention that more accessories are made for 2" receivers.
