There is a way to put a roof rack on your 2021 Toyota RAV4 with flush-mounted rails so you can use a rooftop tent, and you are right that what you would need to do is remove those crossbars and add an aftermarket roof rack. There is an option that will work for you from Thule just like you were wanting, and this is also the best roof rack available for your RAV4 due to its ease of use, install, and quality.

So here is exactly what you will need for a roof rack for your 2021 Toyota RAV4 in order to mount a rooftop tent:

- Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Silver # TH711200 or Black # TH711220

- Rapid Podium Feet for Thule Crossbars # TH460R

- Fit Kit For Thule Podium-Style Feet # THKIT3177

- Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders (Optional) # TH450400

The lock cylinders are optional, but I do recommend them as a theft deterrent on order to help protect your investment in the roof rack. With this rack on your '21 RAV4, you can then add a rooftop tent that will mount right to it, the SkyLine HD tents, which are available for either 2 or 3 people:

- Yakima SkyRise HD Tent for Roof Rack Crossbars - 3 Person # Y07437 or 2 Person # Y07436

These tent are easy to use, comfortable due to their included thick foam mattresses, and are waterproof so you'll stay nice and dry.
