Tow hitch

Looking for a tow hitch for my 2019 RAV4--so far no luck.

U-Haul told me to bring the car to their fabrication center in Tempe, AZ and they could design, fabricate and install a tow hitch. The car is in Honolulu so I'm putting that one on the back burner.

Been discussed, gonna take a while before anyone makes a hitch, best advice is check with the dealer to see if Toyota has one coming and keep and eye on https://www.etrailer.com/vehicle/2019/Toyota/RAV4 they list all manufacturers, so they should be one of the first to list an aftermarket hitch.

I just bought one last week, my dealer included a hitch in the price with a promise to get it installed next week. I just passed by the shop that does the work and they tell me it isn't a problem, so fingers crossed! I'll post an update when/if it happens.

Please also post the part number if it is OEM or available from an online vendor

Interference with kick to open tailgate sensors

Does anyone have experience with hitches and the kick to open tailgate sensors? I have seen mixed reports on whether the sensor will still work after installing the hitch.

Also speaking to my Canadian dealer the OEM hitch is expected towards the end of this month, no firm dates, just check the system weekly.

I believe the kick to open can be disabled if you have hitch and there is interference

There has been speculation that the kick sensor can be relocated so the hitch won't interfere with function, but no one has done it that I've seen on the 4.4, first thought would be to mount it on the bottom of the hitch cross tube just to one side of the receiver.

Already listed in the Toyota accessory list. Over here in EU dealers are selling and mounting them. EU-part#not available at this moment, but they are delivering a fixed hook, a vertical removable and a horizontal removable hook over here.
