I would suggest that each time you start the engine to push the brakes down hard a few times before driving. This will not only test the brakes but hopefully help to seat/expand any seals. Toyota service should have checked under the bonnet for anything amiss with hoses around brake master cylinder etc. Keep a record with details to describe circumstances when the brake pedal has misbehaved e.g. weather conditions, how far driven etc.

Thanks the vehicle is still with Toyota as they are changing the master cylinder which takes 4 days to come from interstate 

They must be driving it over it only takes 3 .5 HRS  to fly not much is done quickly

As a former Toyota High Tech this sounds like a master cylinder fault. Obviously the pedal should not go to the floor!!

Getting parts from interstate is not as simple as putting it on the next flight.

3 days is "normal" for parts to be transferred interstate.

Be patient, hopefully you get the desired outcome of having your Rav4 back in full working order.
