Toyota Avalon Questions

  • When installing the Titan Disc Brake Kit, # T4843400, you will want to install the caliper mounting brackets so that the brake calipers will be on the trailing side of the axle. I posted a photo showing the proper orientation of the calipers for you. We also have a disc brake installation video that you may find very helpful when installing this kit on your trailer, see link. The parts used in the video are different, but the installation procedure will be very much the same.

  • When installing a disc brake kit, like the Titan Disc Brake Kit, # T4843400, on your boat trailer I recommend staying with the original EZ-Lube grease caps, like part # RG04-040. Bearing protectors are not recommended for use with EZ-Lube spindles because the grease zerk in the end of the spindle will interfere with the inside of the bearing protector when pressed into the hub. Grease zerks are pressed into the end of EZ-Lube spindles and are usually very hard to remove. If...

  • We cannot recommend going against what the owners manual says. If it specifically says do not install a trailer hitch then you should not install a trailer hitch. But if it says do not tow a trailer with this vehicle, then that is different and it would be permissible to install a hitch as long as you are not towing with it. To avoid all of that you could use a trunk mount bike rack, see link. I recommend the Thule Raceway, # TH9001PRO. This is by far the best trunk mount rack...

  • In my opinion, the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 36293 has a cleaner look than Curt hitch # C12339. I have included a picture showing the hitches side by side installed on a vehicle for you to compare. The Curt hitch has that bracket that goes beneath the muffler on your 2000 Toyota Avalon. The Draw-Tite hitch does not so it appears a little cleaner. Ground clearance would be about the same on either hitch. Another thing about the Curt hitch is that they require the use of...

  • On the CURT Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 11427, for the 2011 Toyota Avalon, the crossbar is under the bumper but underneath the car. The receiver portion is the most visible part of the hitch you will see. I do not have a picture of the CURT hitch on a 2011 Toyota Avalon, but I am including a link to the instructions on the Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24870. The instructions for the Draw-Tite hitch will show a side view drawing of how the hitch will be located...

  • For your 2005 Toyota Avalon Hybrid you can use Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 36540. I have included a link to the installation instructions to the right for you. If the owners manual says a hitch is not recommended then to me that means you can still install one but only use it for accessories like bike racks. However it would be a good idea to run that by Toyota just to be on the safe side. I am not sure which bike rack you have but as long as it fits a 1-1/4 inch receiver...

  • Both hitches are Class II, with a 3500 lb towing capacity. The Curt hitch has a slightly higher tongue weight capacity, at 350 lbs, versus the 300 lb tongue weight capacity of the Hidden Hitch # 90031. Both hitches would install in the same manner. The Curt # C12107 features a crossbar that's constructed of tubular steel, while the Hidden Hitch # 90031 uses square tube steel. For both hitches, the entire length of the hitch crossbar and the receiver will be visible below the rear...

  • There are 2 different 2-bike trunk mount carriers that have locks and that will fit your 2007 Toyota Avalon and 1997 Mercury Mountaineer. You can use either the Thule Archway, # TH9009XT, or the Raceway, # TH9001PRO. The Archway just has an integrated cable lock in the last bike position. It comes with a passive security strap to deter theft but it is not an actual lock. The Raceway is the top of the line and the best trunk mount carrier I have ever used. It an integrated...

  • The Thule Raceway 3 Bike Carrier, part # TH9002PRO, will fit the 2000 to 2005 Toyota Avalon. Thule does not recommend the use of a 3 bike rack on the 2006 to 2010 Toyota Avalon. The Thule trunk bike rack, # TH9002, will not be able to carry the Delta Trike. You will need to use a hitch trike rack like # R125TK1DELTA. This trike rack would need to be attached to a Class II 1-1/4 inch hitch on your Toyota Avalon. It will work on traditional delta or tadpole style trikes. If...

  • For your 2013 Avalon, I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class II receiver, part # 36540. You did not mention how many bikes you were wanting to carry, but the Swagman Trailhead is a good mid-priced model that is available in a 2-bike, # S63360 3-bike, # S63365 or 4-bike model, part # S63380. The Trailhead provides all of what I consider essential features for a bike rack, like an anti-rattle hitch pin and anti-sway cradles that will prevent the bikes from swaying back and forth...

  • The Kat's Heaters Custom Fit Cartridge Style Engine Block Heater # KH11813 that you referenced should install in the front/left core hole of the engine block in your 2008 Toyota Avalon according to my contact there. Please see the linked image. This heater delivers 400-watts of heating to your engine's coolant for easier starting. You do not need to remove a frost plug for installation. Always be sure to unplug the heater before starting your engine and do not use a 100% antifreeze...

  • The stabilization strap in question is # 18050. I have included a helpful link to another question and answer that contains a video that shows how the stabilization strap should be installed. Only the Curt hitch has this requirement. The Draw-Tite hitch # 24870 and the Hidden Hitch # 60287 do not require the stabilization strap.

  • I checked with Thule and yes the Thule Gateway Bike Rack part # TH9006XT that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2013 Toyota Hybrid Avalon. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter # 64005 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This...

  • There are more bike racks available for the 2 inch receivers, however, your vehicle does not have the option to use a 2 inch bike rack. The following bike racks will work with the Class I trailer hitches listed for your vehicle. They are listed by quality, the first being the best. The Thule T2 Quick-Load 2 Bike Rack, part # TH917XTR, Thule DoubleTrack 2 Bike Rack, part # TH990XT, Thule Vertex 2 Bike Rack, part # TH9028XT and the 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack, part # 63120...

  • The Thule Gateway 2 Bike Carrier, part # TH9006XT, is a fit for your 2013 Toyota Avalon. It will carry up to 2 bikes that weigh up to 35 lbs each, and features a mounting system that will ensure an easy accurate fit for your vehicle, whether you have a spoiler or not. I have linked you to a video for this bike carrier. You might also want to look at the Thule Raceway PRO 2 Bike Carrier, part # TH9001PRO for your Avalon. It has 4 retractable cables to help secure the bike carrier...

  • I will be happy to get you set up for a hitch and bike rack. For the 2013 Toyota Avalon, all of the available hitches, see link, are Class II hitches. The most popular hitch is currently Draw-Tite, # 36540. This hitch will not fit a hybrid model Avalon. I have incldued a link to the installation instructions. For a bike rack, the Swagman XTC2, # S64670, is one of the most popular platform style bike racks available. It would be a good choice for the vehicle, especially if you...

  • The Thule Raceway 3 bike carrier, # TH9002PRO, and 2 bike carrier, # TH9002PRO, are both listed as a fit for your 2000 Toyota Avalon, see link. When using an adapter bar like # Y02531, you need to have the proper clearance to install the adapter between the seat post and handle bar gooseneck. The adapter bar I recommended measures 14-1/2 inches at its shortest so it will work with the 15-1/2 inch measurement you listed for your daughters bike.

  • A Class II or a Class III Transmission cooler would be sufficient. You could use the D13502 that you were looking at, but it may be a bit big or cumbersome to fit and install easily. I would probably use the Class II, part # D13501 from Derale. It is a bit smaller, 11 inches wide, 5-3/4 inches tall and 7/8 of an inch thick. Make sure you have room either in front or behind your radiator for this cooler to lay flat against. I have also added a link to a video of a cooler being...

  • You are correct, installing the Curt Class II Receiver Hitch, # C12107, on your 2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid would require you to trim the heat shield and plastic underbody panel. Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch also offer a custom fit hitch for your Avalon but according to the notes, installation would still require the trimming. I have attached the installation instructions for the Draw-Tite Hitch, # 36540, and the Hidden Hitch, # 90031, for you to take a look at.
