Toyota RAV4 Trailer Hitches

Enough emphasis cannot be placed on how crucial it is to get the correct hitch for the trailer that you want to tow. Although it is now easy to choose from a wide variety of Toyota RAV4 trailer hitches that are available at CARiD, you should also be aware of how each hitch works. The hitches are divided into several categories. There is the gooseneck and 5th wheel hitches. These are mostly suitable for pick ups or trailers which are very heavy. Then there is the weight carrying hitches and finally the weight distributing hitches. As long as you follow the limitations that have been set by the car manufacturer, you can put any hitch on your RAV4. You should, however, keep in mind that only a weight distributing hitch will transfer the weight evenly to all the wheels of the car because it has spring bars. This is not the case with a weight bearing hitch because it will take the mass of the trailer tongue and place it at the suspension, making the front tires of the car lighter.

The reason as to why gooseneck and 5th wheel trailer hitches are the most preferred hitches when towing heavy trailers is because they take all the weight of the trailer and place it on the rear axle which in turn makes it easy to drive in crosswinds. This way, the trailer stays on course and will not steer the bumper from behind. Ensure that you first understand how each hitch works first before making any final decision to buy. The one thing that you will be assured of at CARiD is the quality and durability of the Toyota RAV4 trailer hitches they provide. Each hitch comes with a life time warranty, so you can be assured that you are getting only the best.

If you are using your "daily driver" car or truck for occasional towing duty, you are looking for that ideal sweet spot where the weekday commute is comfortable and quiet, and the weekend trailering feels solid and secure. In other words, you don't want to vehicle to feel too "stiff" during the week, nor do you want it to ride "soft" when pulling a trailer.
This is the year you got serious about your trailering set-up. You've treated yourself to a new, top-of-the-line pickup truck with a tow rating high enough to pull your house off its foundation if necessary. You used your annual bonus to get that bigger boat you had promised yourself (with your spouse's blessing, of course). The boat dealer told you that you could...
When it comes to "electricity", many people are either scared silly of it, or run the other way rather than try to learn about it. Since it is a powerful force, it certainly is something to be respected. For us vehicle owners, perhaps we understand that our cars and trucks have a battery under the hood that needs occasional replacement, and light bulbs that may...

2015 Toyota RAV4
| Posted by | (Granbury, TX)

Installed the hitch and encountered only a minor problem with bolting the hitch to the attachment points because of the exhaust. Great product. I was not especially happy with the electrical connections provided as an assessor as the final product did not look professional. Instead I purchased another product the allowed for many different configurations for trailer wiring attachments. The wiring was especially difficult for the layman, something I hadn't considered.
