    Hey all, I have a 2021 Rav4 Limited and am interested in the extra towing capacity for the adventure trim. I'm not a stranger to turning wrenches and am curious what changes would need to be made to get the same hardware the adventure trim has for the towing capacity. Is there anything...

    I do understand that it's a generally bad idea, but I want to understand the potential scope of work and if that's possible at all. So I own 2022 RAV4 LE FWD 4-cylinder 2.5L gas. From the factory, it has specifications for towing of about 1500 lbs. Max out RAV4 adventure trim can tow up to...

    What are the largest tires one can install on standard Rav4 (2020) rims? I'm needing to replace tires and am looking to also raise the vehicle a bit (due to my after market trailer hitch).

    Hi, I've used OBDFusion in the past to measure ATF temp when towing with my dad's Tacoma and my Outback. I'm getting ready for a summer trip from AZ to OR and planning on hauling about 1500lbs on my 2020 Rav4 hybrid. Just ordered an airbag set for the back coils and it sounds like there's...

    Hi, I have a 2019 rav4 Adventure. I just bought a 15ft aluminum boat and trailer that I am gonna tow about 6hrs every other month. (NYC to Lake George/Champlain) the trailer weighs: 375 lbs (yachtclub 15ft trailer) Boat: 245lbs (Alumacraft v14 Outboard motor: 157lbs (Mercury 25hp) so total...

    Looking to buy a 2018 XLE Rav4! What are some things to look out for/be cautious of. Red flags and known issues? The does and donts of that make/model? Whats the difference between the XLE and XLE Premium? Has anyone towed anything with theirs? Looking to occasionally pull about 3000 lbs How...

    Combining two questions into one. I have a 2013 RAV4 XLE AWD. It already has the Toyota roof rails and cross bars on top. I have to move soon so I'm thinking of installing a tow hitch receiver and putting a basket on top. My Toyota dealer quoted me ~$400 for the trailer hitch (I believe parts...

    this might be a really stupid question. but has anyone towed a small uhaul trailer (or similar small box trailer) with their older model rav4? is this a dumb idea? I know they have 1,500 lbs towing capacity but I'm worried I would mess up my car? I bought my rav4 secondhand last October, she's...

    Hi, I'm moving from Louisiana to Massachusetts and was going to tow a 5'x8' UHaul Cargo Trailer with my 2006 RAV4 (I4, 1500 # Towing Capacity [I think, new to towing]). Is this safe? Can the vehicle make it? I want to push hard and do the trip in 2 days. Thanks in advance & please let me know...

    I may buy a used Adventure and I was wondering if anyone has any experience towing with a 2018 Adventure? I will be towing around 3000 pounds...

    I've searched the site and cannot find anyone who has actually towed a trailer with a 2019 Rav4 Adventure. I have tow experience and I seriously doubt the vehicle's ability to tow 3,500 lbs for anything more than down the block. However, I do want to tow a travel trailer of 1,500 to 1,750 LBS...

    I have a Rav4 2019 XLE AWD, I did install a tow hitch and now I want to tow a small boat that weights around 2200#. So I was wondering how can I add a transmission cooler? To help with the extra towing weight. Also i was planning to add: Cusco Strut Tower Brace Front and the Cusco Power...

    I recently bought a 2019 XLE with a sun roof. I’m coming from a pick up truck of 10 years. Naturally I need to take things places and do outdoor activities. My question is: What’s the opinion on OE style with the gentle arch in the middle vs the straight bar one is see that are a little longer...

    2020 RAV4 Limited Hybrid (AWD) GTWR: 1,750 lb Unbraked TWR: 1,000 lb I have a trailer that does not have brakes and has a GVWR of 1,400 lb. I'd like to load it to near full capacity. What I gather from the owner's manual is that the only real limitation here is braking power. I have several...
  17. 4.5 Exterior
    I'm entirely new to towing, and from what I've seen of trailer brakes, there are usually some sort of manual controls on the dash somewhere. How does trailer braking work with the new (2019-2020) RAV4 Hybrids? Is it configured on the touch display? The owner's manual makes no mention of how to...
  18. 4.5 RAV4 Hybrid (except Prime)
    Anyone have information about the safety of getting the rear motors wet when launching a boat/trailer with my new RAV4 hybrid? Are the rear motors supposed to be waterproof? How about salt water? The boat/trailer combo is less than the 1500 lb limit, and tows just fine. When thinking through...
  19. 4.1 Faults & Fixes
    Hi all, I’ve got a ‘98 Rav (4dr awd M/T) and since I keep finding myself pulling lesser cars like my buddy’s trailblazer out of the mud I’m in search of a new clutch. Any recommendations for clutches that stand up to that kind of abuse and occasional towing? Finally I’ve sifted through some old...

    I bought a Curt harness for my 2008 Rav and installed according to directions (even the durn battery wire that runs the length of the car!) and so far have only a hitch brake light with which to test it. I would eventually like to use it with a trailer, but I'm having trouble with the wrong...
