Clearance At Back Of 2006 Toyota RAV4 With Spare Tire For Hitch Mounted Bike Rack  


Will the Curt hitch C13149 installed on my 2006 RAV4 Limited give as much clearance of the rear wheel cover as any other hitch when I mount the Yakima KingPin4 bike rack? I expect to have very little or no capability to open the rear door even though the rack has a tilt-away feature.


Expert Reply:

When installed on your RAV4, the # C13149 trailer hitch has a distance of 6 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the spare tire holder. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2 inch receiver opening. I have attached a link to an installation video of this hitch on a RAV4 you can check out.

The Yakima Kingpin4 bike carrier has a distance of 8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright mast so you would have enough clearance.
