Trailer Hitch With 1-1/4 Inch Receiver For 2021 Toyota RAV4


we had to sell our old vehicle Jeep w/hitch. We purchased a 2021 Toyota Rav4. We want to purchase a hitch thats compatible with the Rav4 and compatible with the hitch we have - a Thule bike hitch. Ive seen 2 inch hitches for the Rav4. But our Thule bike hitch is 1-1/4. That is, the piece that slides into the vehicle hitch is 1-1/4 inch by 1-1/4 inch Is there a Rav4 hitch that works with a 1-1/4 inch bike hitch?


Expert Reply:

There is a trailer hitch that fits your 2021 Toyota RAV4 with a 1-1/4 inch receiver so you can use your bike rack with a 1-1/4 inch shank, and the best option for this is a hitch from Draw-Tite:

- Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36675

The reason I like this hitch the most for your '21 RAV4 is because it has better ground clearance than the other Class II hitch that fits your vehicle, the Curt # C66KR, which is important when using the hitch for a bike rack. The Curt also requires the use of Stabilizing Straps # 18050 for accessories in order to maintain the warranty, while the Draw-Tite does not require them.

I have added a link below to a video install of the Draw-Tite # 36675 on a 2021 RAV4 for you to check out as well if you'd like to take a look.
