The hitch is still not available in US. Since I'm only use the hitch as bike mount, I wonder if can buy the hitch from Toyota Canada and install on a US model?
Any other concerns?
Any other concerns?
I checked U-Haul, Curt and they don't know when it will be available.Have you checked with any other manufacturers regarding when their aftermarket hitches will be ready?
Reese, U-Haul, Curt, Quadratec, etc? You can be sure that Toyota does not manufacture their own hitches.
Thanks and I did call one of the dealer and he told me I can buy the tow hitch but they cannot guarantee that it fits.The Canadian accessory tow hitch from Toyota will absolutely fit the US spec RAV4. There is no physical difference in the body or frame structure of any RAV4's built for the N. American market. The bumpers are also identical.
I don't know if the accessory tow hitch is available yet at Canadian dealers. i didn't ask, as I have no interest in spending over $1200 for a wired hitch that will only carry a bike rack. All you need to do is phone any Canadian Toyota dealer's parts dep't and ask for a price on the hitch uninstalled, in a box.
One of the dealer told me if I pay in the morning, they will have it available for pick up in the afternoon. I checked Toyota USA and they have no idea if they will have one and they told me before this only available for V6.Did the parts dep't say it was available for immediate delivery?
If it is available now in Canada then it should be available in the US very shortly. It's the same hitch.
Thanks.I asked that of Hidden Hitch. They are not compatible. The '13 RAV frame is totally different.
Is this OEM tow hitch?$895 I was quoted by Toyota for a tow kit.
Hmm...just took a look at Hidden Hitch website.I asked that of Hidden Hitch. They are not compatible. The '13 RAV frame is totally different.
I believe you, just found it's weird that they list contradict information on their website.Well, I emailed their tech support last week and they sent me a message back saying they would be working on a redesigned hitch for the '13, they didn't have an ETA production date, and the 4.3 hitches would NOT fit the 2013 RAV4. That's all I can tell you.
Fits good. Installed the bike rack last nite, looks good.I just purchased the curt hitch too. I paid 133 on ebay, really cheap compared to factory hitch. How the fit on your?
I did not install the tow hitch by myself, went to a hitch center to get it installed.Did you need to reverse the wire rod on top of the muffler?
Kuat NV.Tell us about your bike rack.
