Yes, the Thule Spare Me spare tire mounted bike carrier # TH963PRO will fit your 2008 Toyota RAV4. The cover will have to come off of the spare tire in order to mount the carrier. The Spare Me has a weight capacity of 75 pounds total or 37-1/2 pounds per bike which should be more than enough for your 2 mountain bikes.

If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wife's bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load my son's bike at all. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works.
