What Side Steps or Running Boards Do You Recommend for a 2013 Toyota RAV4?


I just recently purchased a 2013 Toyota Rav 4 Limited all wheel drive. My mother is disabled and would like some sort of automatic step such as this that doesnt require a ton of fabrication to fit. I definitely dont want to compromise the frame will this step work for me or is there a Step you have that would work with little to no modification? Do you happen to know of a provider that can provide such services and maybe covered by medical insurance? I would be looking for the step to be on the passenger side. Even a complete running board for the side would be good.

Automatic steps, nerf bars, and running boards are all fabricated to fit certain vehicles. The product that you listed, the Lippert Electric Tread Lite Step for RVs # LC353542, is made specifically for RVs.

With that being said, it doesn't look like we have any electric steps available for the 2013 RAV4. However, for extra surface area of 67 inches long and 5 inches wide, the AeroTread Running Boards w/ Custom Installation Kit # AA2061018 is a safe alternative. The installation is easy because the brackets simply bolt onto vehicle's frame with no drilling required. Unfortunately, I am not sure if this is covered by medical insurance.
