Installed the Curt Hitch on my 2019 Adventure today. Took about a 1/2 hour or so to install. No need to jack the vehicle up. I supported the unbolted hitch with lumber and paint cans until it could be bolted in place.

Excellent paint quality, no complaints.

I am not wiring it up at the present time. Will be using it for a Thule bike rack.

How much vertical clearance is there from the bottom of the hitch to the level ground?

And comparing the Curt with the Draw-tite, is it safe to assume the paint quality of the Curt is better than the Draw-tite?

The Curt and Draw-Tite(pic) appear to be about the same height, both being about 3" higher than the ground clearance on any '19 Rav4.

The Curt hitch is available in Canada from Rack Attack (https://www.rackattack.com), for about $354CAD with installation. They confirmed with Curt that the hitch does not interfere with the hands-free liftgate sensor on the Limited trim.

Just installed the curt hitch today on mine. It was an easy 20 minute job. Just needed a special tool that most wont have in order to torque the bolts on the passenger side. Overall I'm really happy with it.

What about wiring harnesses? This ZCI Circuit Protected one seems pricey but is the recommended one on etrailer.

This is for the 2019 RAV4 Hybrid LE.
