Default Almost an owner

Hi all,

Just sold my Nissan 350Z and aiming to buy a new Crosstrek. I'm from New Hampshire and needed something to handle the White Mountain roads.

So I'm looking at options with the car and had a quick question. A few I've looked at come with the rear bumper cover. According to the Subaru site, it's not compatible with the trailer hitch. I definitely need a hitch for a bike rack and was wondering if any of you have figured out a solution. Any aftermarket hitches work with this cover or does it need to get removed?

Appreciate any insight!

Thanks,
Matt

you didn't say what year that you are interested in.
so here are the hitches for 18-19 treks.
here is the list of all hitch avail.for 18-19s: https://www.etrailer.com/hitch-2019_..._Crosstrek.htm

the one I have for my bike rack is c13382,https://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Hit...leID=201963913, my bike rack has a 2" rec
this tucks under the bumper and only the rec. shows.

Welcome!

I have a 2018 with the bumper cover, and an eco hitch stealth. Both work just fine.
