Like the title says, I am looking for a hitch for my 2019 RAV4 Hybrid, but do not like the price the dealership is charging for the tow kit and wiring harness. What are some cheaper options out there? Ease of installation and/or "hidden" options would be a plus since I'm not super handy. Thanks guys!

I don't have answers but I am interested in solutions too.

I added a hitch and wires to my Ford Escape Hybrid and it was super easy to DIY. $200 for the "Hidden Hitch" (I think that was actually the brand) and a few bucks for the wires and about - 1 hundred something for a digital brake controller. I still have the universal brake controller.... now where did I put that thing....

The above is probably the best 2019-2020 RAV4 hitch other than the OEM part. It costs a bit more than some of the other aftermarket brands but is mounts higher and the paint is top notch. Almost nothing looks worse on a car than a rusty hitch. Taking my time, I installed mine in less than an hour. The price is now $270 and includes free shipping. I paid $300 for mine a few months ago.

It didn't see it mentioned, is anyone aware if this hitch affects the operation of the foot activated lift gate?

Sometimes they work and sometimes not.
