Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with a 2020 Toyota RAV4


I just got a 20 rav4. Do you have the hitch and stuff to tow a trailer with it?


Expert Reply:

We definitely have everything you need to tow a trailer with your 2020 Toyota RAV4.

First, the trailer hitch receiver I recommend is the Curt, part # C13416. Curt hitches have a thicker powder coating on them than other brands so the hold up to scratching better. The installation is pretty straightforward and just bolts to the RAV4's frame with the included 4 bolts. I linked a video that shows the process on a 2019 which is the same for your 2020.

To go with the Curt hitch I recommend the Curt wiring harness, part # C56434. It's a 4-way connector to power your trailer's lights that plugs into connectors on the RAV4 that are behind the access panels in the rear cargo area. You also run a power wire to the Toyota's battery. I attached an article about running the power wire as well as a video of the entire harness being installed.

For everything else you need our ball mount kit, part # 989900, should have you covered. It includes a couple ball mounts and hitch balls of different sizes along with the pin and clip. This gives you some options on different trailers you might tow. If the kit doesn't work for you I've also linked our selection of ball mounts that fit the Curt hitch receiver and an article to help you determine the ball mount you need.
