What is the Likely Ball Diameter Required for a 2012 Flagstaff Micro Lite Trailer


I just got a used 2012 flagstaff micro lite.The guy told me it took a 1 7/8 ball.Is this correct? Im getting ready to order WD hitch and brake control from you all.Need a little help on this.I have a 2013 tocoma.The travel trailer weights 3630 dry. Thanks

A 1-7/8 inch ball is usually found on very small trailers. While it is possible that the trailer takes a 1-7/8 inch ball it seems more likely that it would take a 2 inch since the dry weight of the trailer is 3,630 pounds. The coupler should have the ball requirement stamped into the top of it.

Most stand alone 1-7/8 inch balls max out at 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight though there are a few exceptions that are rated higher.

Another option is to go with an interchangeable ball set such as # 901b. It comes with a 1-7/8 inch and a 2 inch ball. The shank diameter that fits in the ball mount hole is 1 inch for this set. I have linked a video review for you.
