Which of Your Trailer Hitch Receivers Is The Most Hidden On a 2021 Toyota RAV4?


I'm wanting to install a receiver on my 2021 Toyota RAV4 but I do not want one that looks big. Which of your receivers will appear to look like it came on my RAV4 from the factory and not stick out like a sore thumb?


Expert Reply:

I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e23ZR as being the best looking most hidden receiver available for your 2021 Toyota RAV4. Our receiver uses a matte black powder coat finish that visually blends in with the trim panels on your RAV4. The receiver is designed to keep the cross tube hidden behind the rear bumper fascia giving it a hidden look as you only see the receiver tube and not the entire cross tube. This receiver is a class 3 with a 2" receiver tube. The maximum tongue capacity on the receiver is 600lbs and the maximum trailer capacity is 4,000lbs. Be sure to not exceed any specifications given by Toyota for your specific RAV4.

I do recommend installing a Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118801 when you install the receiver. You will need this 4-way connector to control the lights on small trailers that you may tow as well as provide Auxiliary Lights # C53201 with any hitch mounted accessory that you may be using that impairs the direct view of your tail lights on your RAV4. You can leave this 4-way inside your rear storage area on your RAV4 or you can mount it permanently to your receiver with the Mounting Brackets # 18144 and # 18140 for a no drill installation.
