Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.



Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.


In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario.

Video Transcript for Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Toyota Rav4 - Draw-Tite

Speaker 1: Today on this 2017 Toyota RAV4 we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Draw-Tite Class 3 trailer hitch receiver, Part Number 76134. Here's what our hitch looks like installed. What's great about this hitch is that we have plenty of clearance around our fascia, making this a great hitch to use with bike racks and cargo carriers. Unlike other hitches on the market, this particular hitch is concealed behind our fascia, so we don't see any of it sticking out. This gives us a nice, clean look.On the bottom of our receiver here you'll find our rolled steel safety chain loops. What's nice about these, even if we have a large diameter safety chain hook like this one for our trailer, we can still easily clip on and clip off.

On the side of our receiver you'll find two pin holes. The largest one closest to the front of the vehicle, that's our industry standard 5/8" diameter hitch pin hole, and that's what's used to secure hitch mounted accessories. You can pick up a pin and clip on our website. That's Part Number PC3.Towards the rear, this is our J-pin stabilization device hole. What that device does is take away the annoying shake, play and rattle out of what is inserted in your receiver.

We have one of those available on our website as well. On the end, you'll find this nice collar that's welded on to give us a nice finished look and to help improve the strength of the receiver opening.This hitch features a 350 pound max tongue weight rating, which is the amount forcing down, and a 3,500 pound max gross trailer weight rating, which is the amount it can pull. You'll want to make sure that you consult the owner's manual of your RAV4 and not exceed what the vehicle is rated for.One thing that I like about this hitch compared to others out there is the nice concealed design. It makes it look like a factory installed hitch, and even though you do have to do a little bit of trimming, it's not very involved in order to get this hitch installed, unlike some other options out there. You don't even need to remove the fascia.Now for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing any hitch mounted accessory you may need such as a ball mount and bike rack or a cargo carrier.

You're looking at about 14-1/4" from the ground to the top of the 2" receiver opening and about 3" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the very far back portion of the bumper.Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get it installed. To being our install, we find ourselves underneath our vehicle looking up at our appearance panels underneath. You need to remove these panels. In order to do that, we have several plastic pushpin fasteners that we need to remove. Just use a flathead screwdriver to get underneath the center section, and you can pull the entire pin out.

It'll come out the other side the same way.On the driver's side we have another panel to remove. We have two plastic pushpin fasteners here. We'll remove these two to start. Okay, on the front side of our panel we have a 10 millimeter plastic fastener to remove, and then the whole panel comes down.On our driver's side we have this tie-down bracket. We'll remove it by removing these two 17 millimeter bolts. Now we need to lower our exhaust. We'll start with this hanger here at the rear. We'll spray a little bit of lubricant on it to make it easier to come off. Now we'll use a pry bar and pry off that hanger. Okay, now on the top of our muffler we have this rod that is bolted to the exhaust that wasn't used to hang the exhaust, it's just there. We need to remove it by removing these two 12 millimeter bolts.Now the instructions say to remove the fascia from the vehicle in order to get the hitch installed. We found that's not necessary. You can trim it while it's on the vehicle and still be able to get the hitch installed. This will save you time, and also it saves you from potential risk of damaging the fascia while removing it. So we've marked out the area that we need according to the instructions and we're going to cut it. I'm using a rotary tool for this. You can also use a sharp utility knife. You want to make sure if you're using a rotary tool like this one that you're wearing gloves and safety glasses.Now we'll point out our attachment points on our driver's side. We have three weld nuts in the frame. Two are where our tie-down hooks were, and we have one further to the front. It's a good idea to take some spray lubricant and go in the holes and use a wire brush to help clean out the weld nuts. We have these as well as Part Number 814092.On our passenger side we only have two weld nuts that are attachment points. These we'll definitely want to clean out over here since there was nothing in them. Now with an extra set of hands we'll raise our hitch up over the exhaust on the passenger side, grab our fascia and pull it back, slide the hitch back up in position over our weld nuts. We'll use a bolt with a conical tooth washer with the teeth facing up towards the hitch and we'll secure it into place. Once we have one started, we can get the other one started. Now we'll tighten down the hardware using an 18 millimeter socket.Now we use the torque wrench to torque all of our hardware to the amount specified in the instructions. Now we can reinstall our driver's side panel. Our passenger side, however, is a little bit different. This area here that sticks out we need to cut off. Here's what it looks like trimmed. Slide that panel back in position and secure it back into place.Now on our far driver's side panel I've marked off on the inside where we need to trim in order for it to fit back on. With this panel now trimmed we'll reinstall it. Now we'll raise the exhaust back up and reinstall the hanger.That completes our look at and showing you how to install the Draw-Tite Class 3 trailer hitch receiver, Part Number 76134, on this 2017 Toyota RAV4.

Worth the extra work! This hitch looks so much more clean then any other hitch. I bought a curt brand hitch for my rav at first and it showed so bad. This one all the hardware except the tongue is hidden in the bumper! The biggest pain was cutting the panels. Which is optional except for the base of the bumper. I used some door edge moulding I had left over the clean up the spots i had to cut on the bumper and it looks so much better that way. Also if you have a limited model you have to unscrew the keyless entry antenna and the instructions say you need a 12mm ITS WRONG you need an 11mm it took me forever to get that off struggling to find the right size and it's in a tight spot to get it off. It's worth the hard work for the clean look! I put the curt brand plug and curt wire mount on it and they both work great! 556468

Still works absolutely fantastic! I towed my tear trailer with it this summer and it had no issues with it! I plan on buying the equipment to install trailer brakes into my tear that are made by etrailer here shortly as I am thoroughly impressed with the quality!

I have a 2015 Rav 4 and I ordered the wiring harness with the hitch, ball and receiver and it arrived the next day undamaged. The install instructions were pretty straight forward and was not that difficult to install. I would suggest that you have a helper nearby when raising and lowering the bracket. I did not jack up the vehicle and had more than enough room to install the whole kit. On the right rear of the vehicle had an extra hanger bracket on the top of the muffler that was not attached to anything that needed to be removed as it would interfere with the receiver bracket that bolts to the frame. On the left rear there was a tie down bracket that needed to removed and thrown away to allow room for the receiver bracket that bolts to the frame. The captured nuts that are in the frame of the vehicle were covered with rust and undercoating which made the bolt installation difficult for some and impossible for one. The thread size is 12mm x 1.25mm. This is not a standard size in most metric kits. I was able to get a loaner thread chaser kit from O’Reilly auto parts to clean up the threads. Make sure to do this or you will not be able to achieve the proper torque when tightening the bolts. Torqueing the bolts to the proper set point is an important step. Do not skip this step. I temporally fitted the receiver and marked the bumper cover which needed to be notched. I did this to minimize the cutting of the bumper cover. The instructions give you a general dimensions that are a little larger than they need to be. I also need to clearance the plastic panel that goes under the left rear of the vehicle. You will need to just cut and fit, cut and fit, repeat until it fits properly. I purchased this product even though the load rating was less than others because it tucks under the bumper cover and does not stick down like most all the other receiver I looked at. At 3500 pounds I believe that is more that the vehicle load rating so it should be good enough for me. I am very happy with the speed of delivery and with the quality of the product. 621797

I called etrailer and spoke to Melissa. She was very helpful in getting me detail on the hitch options. I Purchased the Draw-tite hitch for my 2018 Toyota RAV4. The install was very straight forward. The instructions were fairly weak but I had watched some of the YouTube installs prior to purchasing so I know generally what I needed. You will need to do some trimming on the rear bumper cover and the underside cover panel. All in all it’s a very notch for the price and easy to install. 503768

Great fit, love the hidden feature of this hitch. On a 2017 Rav4 no need to remove bumper cover to install, just slide right up there. Unless you are very strong, you need 2 people to install this hitch, don't try to do alone. 570976

I checked with the local car dealership where I purchased my Toyota RAV 4 about getting a hitch installed. When they said it would be over $1,100, I declined. Then my brother-in-law learned of the etrailer.com site. I ordered this hitch and he installed it. It arrived quickly, was easy to install, and does everything the one the dealership would have sold me, and at less than 1/5 the cost. MANY thanks! 558004

It fit fine. It was a little awkward getting it all to line up but once I got it into place it all fit fine. To fit this on the 2010 RAV4 I had to cut a square out of the bumper cover. (See picture) I like that it’s tucked up a little higher than the standard hitch. I haven’t had it scrape anywhere unlike previous car/hitch combinations. 513049

Excellent hitch for wife's 2015 Rav 4. We like that the bar is hidden beneath the bumper cover which also gives extra ground clearance. Has a nice factory look when installed. A little extra work to clearance trim the bumper cover & factory splash guards after installation but well worth the extra effort. Etrailer is excellent, best prices, had hitch in less than 48hrs. & their installation videos & customer service made this a very straight forward installation. I will be doing business with Etrailer again!!! 676853

The hitch arrived in a reasonable timeframe and in good condition. I installed it alone without jacking up the vehicle. In doing so, it took a couple hours, not because it was difficult but simply because I took my time. Fit as advertised on the 2017 RAV4 and so happy I ordered this hitch with the concealed cross tube. Seeing the photos by Al S. helped me understand that the back panel (that we used to call a bumper) needed to be removed. The most difficult part was to figure out how to trim the drivers side underbody panel. Tried to trim as shown in instructions but couldn’t get it to fit and ended up leaving it off. A video of this model year would have been nice but am very happy when all said and done. Would highly recommend this product. 501176

Great fit. The instruction mention trimming the fascia. The fascia is the bumper cover. How would someone know that? I used a Dremel tool to trim in place. It doesn't need to be removed. 558709

I bought this hitch mainly to attach a bike rack to. I decided after seeing other hitches, I liked the DrawTite look. The video does a good job preparing you with the needed tools to get the job done. I took my time, which was just under 2 hours to complete. Special notes: the threads will be rusty, so cleaning them is important, making sure the bolts thread in easy before even lifting the hitch into place. You will need to trim the fascia of the bumper. I used a utility knife and some wire cutters. Honestly, the longest time was spent prepping the threads and cutting the trim. Some of the paint was chipping off the hitch, so not sure how long it will last. If had to purchase again, would probably buy a better hitch with better coating. Overall, happy with the product and the process. The delivery was fast. Two days. 552730

I wanted a Class III trailer hitch for our bike rack for our 2016 RAV4 and it was extremely easy to search for the available hitches and see the reviews. What I really like about etrailer are the videos that review the different types of hitches and options for particular makes/models of cars and there are pictures to view. I went with the Draw-Tite because we have the same brand on our other car and the one I bought tucks under the rear bumper so it has a very clean look and you only see the hitch. I had our mechanic install it so I can't comment on that, but the mechanic said it was pretty easy to install and he did not have to lower or remove the rear bumper (there are a lot of sensors on cars attached to bumpers these days...) so he charged me an hour of labor. The etrailer price and cost of installation was much cheaper than buying from a dealer. Very happy with etrailer and the purchasing process. 646872

Excellent draw tite hitch. Love the way its completely hidden. Installed on Toyota Rav4 2015 XLE AWD. Got a 5X8 Aluma trailer, only weighs 350 lbs so have lots of weight left to haul. Easy installation and excellent video. Also the wiring was fantastic. Etrailer is the only way to go. 600709

The 76134 receiver is well made. All weld beads are continuous and consistent and the material is sized right for adequate strength and minimum weight. Mounting bolt hole pattern is right on. Paint is good and consistent with no dings or scratches. Installation was straight forward. It was necessary to procure a M12 X 1.25 tap to run through the mounting weld nuts in the frame in order to get the bolts to thread in; not a fault of the receiver but the effects of four years of over the road use of the 2015 RAV4. Also the small amount of extra money for this hidden crossbar version of a receiver was worth it when looking at the final installation. The 118578 T-One harness kit installation was also straight forward and it works as it should. Installation was made a little less difficult with the use of the ALL648544 trim pad remover that was purchased with this order. 649472

This was installed on my 2016 Rav4. The installation was straightforward and pretty easy. The only issue I had was with installation of the passenger-side bolts. My car is relatively new but I'm in the Northeast and there is NO WAY those bolts were going into any frame bolt holes that didn't have anything in them before. If you're in the same situation, do yourself a favor and run a 12mm tap through the holes before you start the install. I was putting in the hitch by myself so I'm under the car holding up the hitch frame with my leg like a maniac trying to quickly start the bolts so I could let it go, this is not the way to do this. Once I chased the threads out everything installed super easy. If you have a rotary tool trimming the fascia and the undercarriage plastic pieces is a breeze. Once installed this hitch looks great, it's barely there, no visible crossbar looking ugly or getting caught on things. 613812

Bought this hitch due to it being a hide-a-hitch only seeing the 2” receiver from the back of our SUV ... It was easy to install with basic tools ... I really like the quality of this hitch... Highly recommend it ... 617110

Installed on a 2018 Toyota Rav4. Instructions were a little tough to understand but if you have some basic mechanical knowledge you can figure it out. There are a couple of steps on the instructions that were not necessary to complete this install. They wanted you to remove a piece of fascia that was not required. I only had to trim one piece of fascia and that was pretty simple, I just used a dremel. I installed this on my own and it was a little difficult trying to lift the hitch in place and start the bolts but I was able to pull it off. It took me about an hour to install this and a some basic tools. I bought this receiver hitch so I can utilize my motorcycle receiver hitch hauler. I chose this hitch due to its hideaway crossbar. I didn't want to look at the back of my vehicle and see this receiver hitch bar hanging down and this product does a good job of hiding that. 511026

This concealed hitch is a little more trouble to install, but worth the effort. Everything fit perfectly and holes aligned. A Video would have helped, as i had trouble understanding what was what in the written instructions, but maybe my pictures will help somebody else. You remove 2 screws and a bolt from each side and two bolts you can see if you zoom in, on each side in the back( they are hidden by the liftgate until you open it. Then you can easily remove the back panel (we used to call it a bumper??) by gently lifting and pulling. I didn't disconnect the wiring harness, just supported side. I still need to cut out some in the plastic panel underneath, on the passenger side, to fit around the round bar, which is up high due to the "hidden" look. Hope the pics help. 381258

Excellent fit on our 2017 Toyota Rav4 AWD, all bolts lined up to the frame, but it required a lot of time trimming the plastic under body panels. I made a tool to reinstall the trim panel clips, this helped to avoid removing the bumper. Package arrived with the top torn open, UPS driver handed the box to me and I feared the worst, but all of the hardware was there. Thanks to (Gorge J.) and the crew at "etrailer.com" for protecting the contents! The 76134 hidden hitch looks nice on our new Rav4, we are ready to hit the road! TN Hunter. 572928

I just finished installing 76134 Hitch on a 2018 Toyota RAV4 LE Hybrid. I really appreciated the video (red 2017 Toyota RAV4 LE) and other comments. That guy in the video is impressive. I had three differences from the video 1st) The tie down bracket required my torque wrench to loosen. It was on there and my drill would not cut it. 2nd) The keyless entry antenna was in the way. It is right under the bumper on the passenger side middle. The instructions talk about it but the video doesn't. Maybe some cars don't have it. Either way I removed it with a 10mm wrench. I also removed the bracket that attaches to it and when I was done reattached it with tie downs provided and according to the instructions. I did not have to remove the bumper fascia See photos. 3rd) The largest trim panel on the driver side, I had to trim a touch more than in the video to get it to fit. Overall I'm thrilled with this product and the look. 612164

Ended up looking perfect on my 2016 Rav4 SE! I love the way my vehicle looks and wanted a hitch the was mostly hidden behind the bumper. It's pretty easy to install which I did 100% without help in my driveway. 641276

I want to confirm that this hitch fits on my 2007 RAV4. I took a chance on ordering this hitch because it had not been confirmed to fit this year and I preferred the hidden bar version. As it turns out I don't think it is probably any tougher to install on this model year than any of the newer confirmed years. That being said, I did remove the bumper cover as I wanted analyze every step to make sure it was going to work. It did take most of a day to install but half of that time was spent cleaning up the threads of the previously unused holes required for the hitch attachment. A word of advice here is that if you don't have access to a tap to clean up the threads, take your time before actually installing the hitch to make sure that the bolts will thread all of the way. It took a lot WD-40 and multiple (maybe 10 to 15) attempts to get further and further. You only want to go so far and then back off (or out) and then spray and go again. This process would have been required for my situation no matter which hitch I was installing. After that, the installation went fairly smooth. To me it was worth the effort as it looks as good as a factory installation. Oh yeah, I did this review because I have the V6 which pulls my 18ft boat effortlessly and thought there would be others wanting to use this hitch. 407252

After a year all is good. Use it to pull my 18 ft boat approx. 2500 lbs.

I am extremely satisfied with this trailer hitch. From product quality to ease of install it’s great. Only thing I found a little challenging was getting the drivers side rear panel trimmed correctly for reinstalling. Look and fit or good, product was just about as easy to install as the guy in the video, available on their site, makes it look. Great product, good instructions, good price! Bought for my 2016 Toyota RAV4, my use is for a platform bike rack. Went with the 2inch receiver which looks a little over kill on the RAV4 but for peace of mind I know my bikes are solidly mounted to the car. 568677

2018 RAV4 XLE I am so glad I went with this hitch. The hidden look is so much nicer than the other hitches with the bar exposed. Install was easy, pre cutting the bumper made it easy to install and not have to remove the bumper. 100% happy with my purchase. 509054

Great Product and Service. I got the hitch and wiring kit today and installed them today. This is the second hitch I've installed in the past year on our vehicles and, because of etrailer's service, this time went much smoother and much faster. The packaging was better (although the hitch did get a couple dings that required touchup before installing). The videos for the hitch and the wiring were well done and very helpful (although it would have been handy to have information on moving the remote antenna receiver and how to hook up the battery in a hybrid). Neither of these minor exceptions were a big deal and all went well. Installing both the hitch and the wiring took just over two hours. Buying this model hitch was worth the extra few dollars to hide all but the receiver behind the rear bumper fascia. I do wish I could find a well designed attachment to mount the four-wire plug directly to the hitch rather than pulling the wire out of the tire well each time. Well done, etrailer! 574706

Good product but I spent over 12 hrs installing this + wiring harness. One mistake I made was watching the video and not reading the PDF. The video is for 2015 but 2016 and 2017 have an 6" long black module in the center of the bumper that is in the way and must be relocated. That cost me a couple of hrs trying to figure out what that was. I am so glade I have the hybrid with the battery in the back. I hate the thought of running a power wire all the way up to the front if you have reg. version. 391213

Hitch arrived quickly, the box was a little banged up but the hitch was just fine. Installation was a breeze after watching the video instruction. The black and white printed instructions are pretty much useless, better to look at the color version of them in the PDF file on the web site. Top notch products and the service was quick and efficient. 713336

Hitch fits our 2013 RAV4 nicely. Only the box receiver shows below the bumper. Easy install. Have only used it for a bike rack so far. Outstanding service from etrailer.com though. UPS lost the first hitch and I was up against a time crunch before leaving on a trip. Emily at etrailer rushed another hitch to me that arrived in time for me to install before our trip. 697942

Good hitch, just using it to carry bikes but seems sturdy enough to tow a lighter trailer. It was nice that the install was easy as the holes lined up with the factory chassis. 682854

Excellent fit and finish. Instructions were clear and accurate. The online video was helpful. Installation was very easy. Trimming the plastic panels was a bit tedious for my 2018 Rav, but went very nicely. ETRAILER deserves an A+ for quality, accurate descriptions, fast delivery, and excellent support. I have been a customer for many, many years and have never been misled or disappointed. All of products that I have purchased from etrailer over many years have always been top shelf, top quality. 670720

Receiver fit 2018 Rav4 fine. Needed to cut plastic bumper underneath slightly per instructions. Cut less than instructed. Instructions did not discuss Rav4 lift gate foot sensor which must be moved or will be crushed once receiver is bolted in. This required me to install and remove receiver 3 times until I found cause of interference. Finding cause of interference was hard due to tight area receiver fits into. Must have 2 helpers or 2 floor jacks to install. I was able to install alone with 2 floor jacks. Once foot sensor interference resolved and jacked into place receiver fit fine and looks great. Receiver gets 5 stars. I rate installation as difficult due to foot sensor interference. 662189

I love having the hitch bar concealed. We installed ourselves and had a little trouble getting it to fit (problem seemed to be with the car, not the hitch). Solved another issue by going to the video for the next car year. Happy with results. 655752

The hitch arrived today and I didn’t have any trouble installing it on my 2014 RAV4. I like the fact the support bars are hidden behind the lower fascia and can’t be seen from the rear.. i have the wiring kit also but I will do that at another time. Now I will be able to use my old bike rack for an upcoming trip. 649955

This hitch bar is very robust and sturdy. 2018 rav4... Just lay it on your stomach and raise the side up next to muffler and insert one bolt by hand, raise the other side up and insert another bolt. Next insert the other 2 bolts and then tighten all four very snug! I litterally installed this in less than 10 mins. Once it was bolted in, I used a reciprocating Makiita saw and carefully cut the plastic away and it was finished! 638207

Quick Shipping from etrailer. The hitch is beefy (stronger than the car it self). It was easy to install in 20 min just 1 person and a milk crate to hold the other side. However the round tube of the hitch is very scratched up so I took 1 point off. 633971

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Comparing EcoHitch and Draw Tite Hitch for 2018 Toyota RAV4
  • The Draw Tite hitch part # 76134 and EcoHitch part # 306-X7219 are both a confirmed fit for your 2018 Toyota RAV4 and will provide a trailer hitch that has a concealed crosstube making it less visible than most hitches overall. The key differences are that the EcoHitch claims a shorter install time, is quite a bit more expensive, and is made from all recycled materials. So you pay a bit more for a shorter install time and a more environmentally friendly hitch. I attached a picture of what...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver with the Most Ground Clearance on a 2017 Toyota RAV4
  • I compared ground clearance measurements for all of the 2" trailer hitch receivers we have for your 2017 Toyota RAV4 and found that the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76134 has the greatest distance from the ground to the top of the hitch receiver tube opening. When we tested this trailer hitch on a similar 2015 Toyota RAV4, we found that the distance from the ground to the top of the hitch receiver tube opening was about 14-1/2".

  • Comparing Trailer Hitch Receivers for 2018 Toyota RAV4 For Ground Clearance
  • With the Curt trailer hitch receiver # C13149 option for your 2018 Toyota RAV4, the only trimming is on the underbody panel which you also have the option of simply removing. If you are concerned about it being a lease, then I recommend removing it and keeping it in a safe spot so you can remove the hitch and reinstall the panel in tact. The Draw-Tite # 76134 will give you more ground clearance and will require slight modification of the fascia, but it is minimal. It has a nicer look...

The EcoHich isn't necessarily made of better corrosion-resistant materials than something like the Draw-Tite # 76134, it simply states it has a black powder coat finish that offers protection against corrosion, though...

  • Trimming Fascia on a 2013 Toyota RAV4 to Install a Trailer Hitch

  • Yes, we do. I recommend the Draw-Tite, part # 76134. It's a fit for all of the 2018 RAV4's including the Hybrid model like you have. I like how the crosstube is hidden behind the RAV4's bumper and all you see is the receiver tube sticking out. Take a look at the picture I attached. I've also linked the install video for you, which isn't on a Hybrid model but the install is the same. The wiring harness # HM11141820 from Hopkins gives you a 4-way to power the trailer lights.

  • Is Removal of Bumper for Installation of Draw Tite Hitch on 2017 Toyota Rav4 Required?
  • There are hitches available for your 2017 Toyota Rav4 that will not require fascia removal, but it will be necessary when installing the Draw-Tite # 76134. If you did not want the fascia removed, you could use the Class III Draw-Tite # 75235 or Curt # C13149. The only requirements for these hitches are the trimming of the underbody panel. I've added a link to a video showing installs of both hitches on a 2016 Rav4. If you are going to be towing, the correct wiring to add a 4 flat...

  • Is There Trailer Hitch That Will Not Interfere With Hands-Free Liftgate on 2018 Toyota RAV4?
  • A trailer hitch may cause some interference with the hands-free liftgate on your wife's 2018 Toyota RAV4 because it is partially in front of the motion sensor but it will still work as normal. For example, the Draw-Tite # 76134 will allow full functionality of the liftgate, but your wife will just need to activate it with her foot on either side of the hitch receiver instead of the middle. Otherwise, everything will be the same in regards to the liftgate. I recommend going with the...

I attached a picture that shows just how hidden the hitch is. For trailer wiring you'd then want the part # 118578 which is a confirmed fit as well.

  • Which Trailer Hitches for 2018 Toyota RAV4 Allow Hands Free Liftgate to Work and Which Do Not
  • Vehicles with rear lift gate sensors typically use several of these across the rear bumper area. Hitch installation on such vehicles usually means that only the centrally-positioned sensor will be affected. Those to the sides of the hitch tube usually function without issue. With the 2018 Toyota RAV4 we have found that when installing a hitch like the part # 75235 the feature is a bit harder to predict whether it will work or not. For some people you just have to kick to the side and...

This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver and is a complete bolt-on installation that will not require drilling into the frame of your vehicle.

  • Why Can't Weight Distribution System Be Used with Draw-Tite # 76134 on Toyota RAV4
  • A complete weight distribution system applies an awful lot of torque to the hitch and tow vehicle it's being used on so some hitches simply aren't rated to handle this kind of stress. As you mentioned in your question this is the case for the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch # 76134.
