Maybe you can find room to add ETI's- or your own storage box on the front, and keep this handsome looking couple together?
The issue is that the Forester only takes a 200 lb tongue weight and 2400 lbs total. To get the tongue weight down to 200 lbs I need the cargo rack in back. Then if I want 10% of the weight on the tongue I need to keep overall weight to about 2000 lbs (Subaru says 8-11% or some such number but I don't like to go below 10%) and that means always having to watch the weight. (Though technically I could still carry about 400 lbs more in the back of the Subaru, I don't think I'd want to.) So it works- but it's not ideal, and ultimately I'll probably move up to something that doesn't have the limitations the Forester does.
