Will this rack work on a 2003 Toyota Rav4?
Will the tongue length clear the spare tire on the back of my Rav4?

you need 5" of clearance from the end of receiver and straight up. Inside 5 inches you will be cutting it close to the tire. I can't see the receiver in the picture but if it is tucked in underneath it might not work unless you have and extension.

I suggest you purchase a "Spare-tire" mounted rack. If you do want a hitch-mounted rack the vertical post of the rack extends 6 inches past the receiver (i.e. it depends entirely upon the location of the receiver).

You may need a hitch extension. Depends on how far the tire sticks out. From the end of the hitch tube to the inside of the vertical tube, it' 7 1/2 inches.

I have a Toyota Rav 4 2003 and I use the rack on it. I had to get an extension which I found at Harbor Freight about $16. The rack works great

Probably not without an extension. I use it on an Isuzu Trooper - with an externally mounted spare tire.
To use the rack as it came out of the box - I had to remove the spare and toss it in the back of the Trooper.
I purchased an extension/adapter from Harbor Freight (http://tiny.cc/hitchadapter) which works great.

I doubt that it will work with your Rav4. I bought this rack to use with my Ford Ranger, and was hoping it might work with my Jeep Liberty with the rear spare tire. It doesn't even come close to reaching the receiver on the liberty.
