Towing Malone Kayak Trailer With 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid


Hi I am considering purchasing this trailer to carry my kayaks. MPG526G-V I have a 2017 Hybrid RAV 4 XLE. Can you confirm that I can use it to tow that trailer and if so, what I will need to do to so ? thank you!

I took a look at the owner's manual of a 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and the only specification I found about towing was that Toyota does not recommend Highlanders "with SE grade" tow a trailer so you would seem to be fine but the final word rests with the Toyota dealer and I recommend contacting them with your VIN so they can tell you with authority what your vehicle is capable of.

Assuming you are fine to tow, in order to use the Malone XtraLight Trailer with V-Style Kayak Carriers # MPG526G-V you'll need to start with a trailer hitch, the Curt # C12108 as well as 4-Flat Connector # 118578 in order to power the Malone trailer's lights.

Finally, the recommended ball mount for this hitch on your '17 RAV4 is the Curt # C45518 and you also would need 2" hitch ball # A-82 as well as Pin and Clip # F-4 and you'd be all set to use the Malone trailer.
