Anybody know what the stock Toyota hitch size is? If you configured it online, it just says "hitch", no indication of size.
Ok, so now I've got three different replies...
#1 - says stock is 2"
#2 - says stock is 1.25"
#3 - says stock is either 2" or 1.25"
When you order from the dealer, what are you getting? Do they give you a choice of part numbers?
I want to know because I already have expensive 2" accessories, like a bike rack that I'd like to use if I buy a new car.
I don't see how a 2006-2008 guide will help in a 2017... This is the 4.4 section, right?Maybe this thread will help you? http://www.rav4world.com/forums/97-4-3-exterior/70172-toyota-rav4-oem-hitch-guide-2006-2008-a.html
Agree with ivan70, all the sites I checked say Class 1 which is only a 1 1/4 inch receiver. The Genuine Toyota one is it worth 5 times an aftermarket one?Maybe it was moved because you have 2009 Toyota RAV4 Limited V6 4WD in your signature? I am not sure.
But i understand the frustration.. 2017
Part Number: PZQ6442097 I spoke to my friend at Toyota parts dpt, he said for 2017 they only have Class I, with 1.25" receiver. for some models in 3rd generation they had 2" option, Class II. Curt makes 2" one for 2017, 143 dollars. Or you can get adopter 1.25 to 2", but that will be ugly
My 3rd gen OEM hitch has the larger 2" size. I *think* all OEM hitches for 3rd gen RAV4s were 2" but am not 100% certain about that (I only know there were at least 2 different 4.3 part numbers for hitches, one for 3rd gens with the Tow Prep package, one for 3rd gens without the Tow Prep package and I think those two were both for the 2" size).Agree with ivan70, all the sites I checked say Class 1 which is only a 1 1/4 inch receiver. The Genuine Toyota one is it worth 5 times an aftermarket one?
My apologies, I missed the fact that the discussion was for 4.3 rather than 4.4I believe it is 1.25" rather than 2" possibly because of the 1500 LBS towing limit. When I was researching for a trailer hitch that was hidden it came down to the EcoHitch and the Toyota OEM hitch which was 1.25". I ended up with the EcoHitch with the 1.25" size.

Everything in your posts & bio says you have a 2009 V-6 so I moved it to 4.3. I'll move it back to 4.4 because I was uninformed and have no psychic powers. :kissSeems like an uninformed mod moved without telling anyone...
PreciselyMaybe it was moved because you have 2009 Toyota RAV4 Limited V6 4WD in your signature?
Yep, and if the OP had simply said he was talking about a 2018 model there would have been no confusion. :surpriseEverything in your posts & bio says you have a 2009 V-6 so I moved it to 4.3. I'll move it back to 4.4 because I was uninformed and have no psychic powers. :kiss
Those 4.4 OEM hitch installation instructions are pretty involved. It looks like you have to take apart quite a bit of the back of the vehicle.For what it is worth, I purchased a Toyota oem hitch from the dealer and installed it myself on my RAV4. I can confirm that the receiver is a two inch. The Toyota oem hitch price, from the dealer, was $530.00 CDN and a Curt hitch (uninstalled) was like around $260.00 CDN. It was well worth buying the Toyota oem hitch and installing it myself. The dealer wanted like $1700.00 CDN to install which is way way too much.
