For your 2022 Toyota RAV4, if you are concerned about height, I recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver, # EH97FR as this will set at 14" from ground to the top of receiver tube.

The other options, including the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver, # e23ZR option, all set at 12".

- EcoHitch, # EH97FR
- Curt 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, # C56434
- etrailer Ball Mount Kit, # 989900

The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver, # EH97FR also has the highest tongue weight rating of 750 lbs. The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver, # e23ZR is the better price point and still a fantastic option with 600 lb. tongue weight and trailer tow weight of 4,000 lbs. Both of which exceeds the specs of the vehicle.

If you do want to be prepared for abilty to tow, you will need the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, # C56434 and the etrailer Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches, # 989900. What I like about this option is that offers a couple of ball mounts and a 2" ball along with 1-7/8" ball all at a price point similar to other options that offer just the one. This will allow you to be ready to tow either of the most common coupler sizes with height options of drop/rise.
