Will Curt Class III Hitch # 13147 Fit a 2015 Subaru Forester


Dear Sir/Madam, I have a hitch 13147 installed on my 2009 Subaru Forester. Does the hitch fit 2015 Forester? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

The Subaru Forester underwent a change of generation after the 2013 model year and your 2015 Forester is now part of this vehicle's 4th generation.

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13147 that you referenced fits model years 2009 through 2013, but will not fit the 2015 Forester. However, for this new vehicle we do have a confirmed hitch fit, one that is also a 2-inch Class III design. The hitch for your 2015 is Curt # C13144, which actually offers higher tongue weight and towing capacity. Installation instructions are linked.

I suggest for towing needs the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900 which includes ball mounts, hitch balls and a pin and clip. If you need a trailer wiring harness for your 2015 Forester you can use # C56040, also from Curt, that installs without cutting or splicing your vehicle's wires. A video is included.
