Do you know if this rack with work with a 2008 Toyota Rav4 (i.e. is there enough clearance to open the back door once it's installed)?
Clearance should not be a problem with any of Kuat's hitch racks once installed. I have attached the "fit guide" that answers those questions with actual dimensions. Let me know if you have any other questions, GREAT RACK! http://kuatracks.com/workspace/media/uploads/fit-guides/downloads/sherpa-fit-guide.pdf
I forgot to mention that the Sherpa (as with all Kuat hitch mounted racks) have a 3 pronged spring loaded pivot system. 1) Up for Storage 2) Flat for usage 3) angled down for entry into your hatch with backs still loaded up.
