2019 Toyota RAV4 Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Towing and a Bike Rack


Looking for the best option for my 2019 Toy Rav 4. Would like a trailer hitch that can also accommodate a bike rack. Is there one can I can get that will let me do both?


Helpful Expert Reply:

I really like the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e23ZR for your 2019 Toyota RAV4 because it has a matte black finish that not only looks better but also has a more durable finish than the classic glossy black finish we see on all of the other trailer hitches.

This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver so it can easily be used for towing a trailer or hauling a bike rack. If you're wanting to do both at the same time then I recommend checking out the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-314 which you can flip upside down and use the lowest receiver for towing and then mount the bike rack in the highest receiver so it sits above the trailer tongue.

I recommend picking up the T-One Wiring Kit # 118801 so you can power the lights on your trailer and then if you don't have a bike rack yet the Kuat Beta # B202-2 is a great choice to help prevent overloading the tongue weight rating of the hitch as it only weighs in at 12.6 lbs.

Attached are some videos for you to check out for each product. We also have a variety of ways to transport both a trailer and a bike rack with your RAV4 so if the Gen-Y Hitch looks like it's a bit much I can make some other recommendations as well!
