2016 Subaru Crosstrek, Automatic. Boxer engine. Rated up to 1500 lbs towing. I asked Subie Dealer service to install "tow hitch" installed, and ASSUMED they would put on a Class III hitch like I always had before (on other vehicles) and Class III was ALL I ever saw used in MN. Picked up the car and it had a Class II on it (oops), which of course looks much smaller and is not a 2 inch bar. My 2003 Taos Coleman should not weigh over 1500 lbs. It has even been stripped of its kitchen cabinet and its table, so I think I'm good. There is an older thread with actual lbs and tongue weight on an '03 Taos. Service manager assured me I would NEVER be pulling anything exceeding a Class II. Well, what do you think? ETrailer has Class IIIs that are what it recommends for the Crosstrek. I am generally towing in the flatlands of FL, but hey, what if I wanted to go to hilly northern GA? Afraid to tow with it, until I know. I don't know whether to be mad, or just get towing. Thanks!
