Installing Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch on 2012 Toyota RAV4


I am looking at part 75235 for a 2012 RAV 4. The installation details state that some trimming is required. I just watched your 2010 installation video and no trimming was required for that year. Can you tell me if trimming would be necessary for my 2012 model.


Expert Reply:

The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75235 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2012 Toyota RAV4 and is the exact hitch I would have recommended. When installing the hitch to your vehicle, you may just need to remove the plastic appearance panel (if present) that is located on the driver side, but you will not have to trim any of the bumper fascia for the hitch to fit perfectly. I have attached the complete installation instructions and an image from them that clarifies this step.

This is a fairly simple, no-drill installation that has an estimated install time of just around 30 minutes. All of the necessary hardware will be included.
