Question:

will it allow rear hatch door to open fully on a 2016 rav4 when rack is folded down with bikes ? if I only want to carry one bike can I remove one upright and one pair of wheel holders ?

We haven't gotten a chance to test fit the Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64683 on the 2016 Toyota RAV4 so I can't say for certain that it will clear your rear hatch with the bikes loaded, but I am pretty confident you won't have any issues. We have used this rack on very similar vehicles and the hatch cleared every time without a problem. I have attached a couple images you can check out.

If you wanted to remove the rear cradles and upright when only loading 1 bike you certainly could. I verified this with my contact at Swagman as well.

I have attached a short video review on this carrier that you can also check out.
