Trailer hitch ball sizes

There are four key factors that must be considered when selecting a trailer hitch ball for your towing setup.

1. Weight rating.

2. Coupler size.

3. Hole size.

4. Platform thickness.

To learn more about each of these factors, see the panel below. The diagram to the right shows the various measurements of a trailer ball, which may be referred to in the following sections.

1. Weight rating

Before selecting a trailer hitch ball, it is important to know how much weight you’ll be towing. Each trailer balls is rated to certain gross trailer weight capacity and tongue weight capacity. The gross trailer weight is the total weight of the trailer, while the tongue weight is the weight specifically at the coupling point.

Remember, your towing capacity is always limited by the lowest-rated towing component, whether that’s the vehicle, the trailer hitch or the tow ball.

1. Weight rating

2. Coupler size

3. Hole size

4. Platform thickness

CURT 1-7/8" trailer balls are constructed from high-strength steel to match the towing power of your class 1 or class 2 trailer hitch and ball mount and come with fine threads on the shank for improved holding strength. Having a trailer ball that matches your coupler size is absolutely essential. At CURT, we engineer our trailer balls to be precisely fitted. When we stamp 1-7/8" into the top of each hitch ball, we actually mean 1-7/8".This CURT tow ball features a ball capacity of 2,000 lbs. It is able to tow most utility trailers, boat trailers, campers, smaller livestock trailers and some recreational vehicle haulers (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component; i.e. the vehicle, hitch, trailer, etc). As with any trailer, be sure that your towing equipment is capable of handling the load before hitching up. This trailer ball also features a 3/4" shank diameter, a 3" shank length, 0" of rise and a nickel-chrome finish to protect against corrosion and wear. Like all CURT trailer balls, our 1-7/8" balls are tested for your safety and meet all U.S. VESC specifications.

Solid piece of equipment, seems well constructed. Note that it only comes with the pins to adjust the hitch ball, not the pin to connect the gear to your vehicle. You'll have to buy that separately.
