any ideas?

only when reversing; whether straight or with wheel turned but not when going forward

i recall reading about another rav4 owner having a similar issue...i think it was the strut or strut bearings....of course i may have been drinking that day lol...perhaps you could have someone place their hand on the top of the strut while going backwards to see if they feel something...

"Clunking" makes me think CV joint. It wouldn't hurt to check the boots for tears or grease. You might also see if there's a loose splash guard or bumper panel, it wouldn't really sound like a clunk, but maybe we call them different things :)
