that is actually one of the weaknesses of towing with a subaru, there really isn't a true frame in a unibody car, especially behind the rear wheels. The mount points are the weak point of any bolt on hitch for a subaru.
anyway, to the OP, i put MANY miles on my wrx in the summer towing a jet ski or two, it handles it fine. use common sense, and wire up your car for trailer lights. Even if you don't legally need them in your state, it will protect you from a ticket and possible lawsuit should someone rear end you.
