Not sure which one you're asking about, but...
The Subaru hitch is 1.25" only. It costs $450-ish before labor and requires removal/replacement of the rear bumper and cutting of the bumper fascia.
I can't say for sure how the Curt ($150-ish) installs, but my understanding is that it installs pretty similarly to the Torklift ($250 - my thread
with information on the Torklift and a link to the install instructions).
When I installed mine, it was technically a 'no drill' install, but it did require widening of two holes near the spare tire to fit a couple nuts/bolts through. Not too big a deal to me, though they recently released a true no drill install - but I believe that requires removal of the bumper (not 100% sure, I haven't checked the instructions).
If you ask me, the Curt and TL would each be easy enough to install. They each have 1.25" and 2" options. They'll both handle whatever load you throw at them. Main differences being the TL is hidden when not in use and doesn't decrease your clearance at all. The Curt sits just below the rear bumper fascia (as most hitches do).
