    Will a TW fit in the cargo area of an 08' Rav4? I have Rav but not a TW (yet) to check for myself.







    Thanks

    It might work but you may need to remove the front wheel and use a shoe horn.

    Haha no, actually, I did mean one of those little plastics things The bike is 82.3" long and 44" high, the cargo area is 72" long and 32" high. With the front tire removed and at an angle it might fit, but sounds like way more trouble than it's worth. Leaking oil and gas, dirt, chunks of asphalt, sharp metal objects on the bike close to the cloth interior of the suv kinda spells out disaster.
    Sold bike.

    I was able to fit mine in the backseat of my Taurus.

    Lol, maybe you should move over to the hitch mounted bike racks vs. trailers thread.

    The Rav4's towing capacity is 1500 pounds. Maximum hitch load is 150 pounds. A carrier would be a stupid choice for this vehicle, especially since if you are involved in a crash the overloaded hitch would shift the preponderance of blame to you. Your safest option is a small trailer.
