Well Subaru stopped putting RV towing in their manuals after 2012 as I recall, and officially, no longer supports it, but manual transmission turn-key Subarus continue to be flat towed. I don't think any Subarus are listed in the dinghy towing guides anymore either.
That being said, both Roadmaster and Blue-Ox make baseplates for your vehicle (specifiying manual transmission) so you should be able to do it. You will need to turn your key 1 notch to unlock the steering wheel.
