Expert Reply:

The ball size you need will be dictated by the coupler on the trailer. Take a good look at the top of the coupler. The necessary ball size should be stamped on the coupler itself. The smallest ball size we offer is 1-7/8 inch, which is most likely what you need.

The 1-7/8 inch balls come with various shank diameters with 1 inch like part # 19260 or 3/4 inch like part # 19256 being the most popular. You will want to choose a trailer ball whose shank diameter matches the diameter of the hole in your ball mount.

We also offer a 2 inch ball, also with varying shank diameters. Part # 19247 has a 1 inch diameter shank, or # 19258 has a 3/4 inch diameter shank.
