      I can’t say, really, as I don’t have a RAV4 Adventure...everything I know about them is basically stats on paper, no real world experience, and I don’t know the elevations you’re driving. It’s probably OK. But every make and model tows a bit differently, and adequate limits on one may feel wholly inadequate when climbing mountains with another. Realistically, a vehicle with 3500 lb tow capacity *should* be good enough, but as many members here would tell you, any time you choose to tow with a minimum limit tow vehicle, you could end up in a situation where you don’t have a comfortable amount of power for what you want to do. I’ve seen people here swap their 3500 lb tow vehicles for 5000 lb ones, I’ve also seen them swap vehicles for a different make with identical limits and get better towing experiences. Your best bet is to post your concerns as an actual thread, asking for RAV4 Adventure owners to respond.
