The Toyota RAV-4 ATV/SUV was first released in 1994. To determine which variant of Toyota RAV-4 you have, check your vehicle logbook. This will ensure you purchase the correct towbar.

What does nose weight mean?

Nose weight is the force on the towball when a caravan or trailer is attached. Every towbar for every vehicle will have a specific nose weight for that vehicle which can differ between the age of the vehicle and the variation of the model. It is crucial that you don’t exceed the nose weight set on the towbar as this is dangerous and can decrease stability when towing.


Toyota RAV-4 ATV/SUV Electric Kits

Electrical kits connect the electrics in your ATV/SUV to the electrics on your trailer, bike rack or caravan so your lights are still visible.

Electric kits for Toyota RAV-4 ATV/SUV

We would always recommend having a dedicated electrics kit installed, where possible. This syncs with modern computer functions of your ATV/SUV, like ABS and trailer stability, rather than just basic lighting.

Why is a dedicated kit important? Well, not only does it work with the specific features of your vehicle, but it also protects the warranty of your ATV/SUV and works with any enhanced safety features you may have.

Of course, you can choose between a dedicated kit or a universal kit, and we do offer both, but a universal electrical kit can affect your manufacturer warranty and you might also need to install a bypass relay.


Toyota RAV-4 ATV/SUV Software Update

We will alert you as to whether your ATV/SUV requires a software update when you choose your towbar electrics kit.

Does my vehicle need a software update?

Sometimes your vehicle may need a software update to accommodate your new dedicated electrical kit. This is so all of the latest computer features in your ATV/SUV can accurately co-ordinate with your towbar electrics.

Software updates can take place at your local Toyota dealership when your vehicle is in for service. Or, this can sometimes be updated at your local garage when you arrange towbar fitting through WebFit.
