SUBARU EQUIPS ITS VEHICLES WITH PRACTICAL FEATURES THAT ALLOW CONFIGURATIONS FOR STORING AND TRANSPORTING WHATEVER YOU NEED FOR YOUR LIFESTYLE.
Whether you're hauling camping gear to secluded mountains in an Outback, strapping a hang glider to the roof of a WRX, loading up your Subaru with a harvest, or simply transporting friends, Subaru vehicles have built-in provisions for making your life a little easier. A few precautions can make travel safer, too.
Roof racks increase the utility of your vehicle, and Subaru has a number of systems available. However, be aware that roof rails and cross bars have weight limits. It is crucial not to overload them. Consult your Owner's Manual for weight limits and precautions.
With the addition of an accessory trailer hitch, Subaru vehicles can tow more – as much as 3,500 lbs with a Tribeca. See your vehicle's Owner's Manual for its specific maximum towing capacity for safe travel.
Ensure the wiring harness is properly installed and that lights function properly on both the vehicle and the trailer before starting out.
If you've never driven with a trailer, practice prior to travel. Take your vehicle to an empty parking lot to practice turning and backing the trailer into a parking space. Practice will improve your confidence and skills for safer towing.
