I hauled about 500lbs of roof shingles and misc. supplies. Have also hauled several transmissions (one at a time, not sure their weight). Handled just fine, this was when I had my bad transmission too surprisingly. Stopping distance increases greatly I might add...
Did you ever consider getting a hitch + small utility trailer? Might be a good option for stuff like this and things down the road, ie: lawn tractor, car parts, etc. I'm still working on doing this myself. The Rav4.2 has a ton of room for the size of the vehicle, but I don't want to keep abusing the interior so I'm getting a small trailer.
