So I'm not crazy!
Finally found someone with this issue. 2006 4WD. Ours has been doing it since probably 30k miles. When decelerating or accelerating briskly, there's no sign of it. At about 35-40 mph under light acceleration, the RAV suddenly starts making the "rumble strip" sound. I think it sounds more like a large, hollow, plastic box vibrating like crazy.
The good news is that it's been happening for probably 4 years/40k miles now and doesn't sound any different than when it first started doing it.
It's irritating, no doubt, but hasn't been costly. Yet. Other than the popping steering cable the vehicle has been great.
