What is the standard size ball for a trailer hitch?

Guys,
What's the standard size ball for pulling a trailer (waverunner, boat, utility trailer etc)? I think it's 2" but I want to go buy a stainless one since mine has turned into a hunk of rust. Thanks. Later.

Matt

1 7/8", 2", and/or 2 5/16"

So, it depends on what the coupler on your trailer uses. The ball size will be stamped into the coupler on the trailer tongue.

2" seems to be the most common but it does vary depending on the application.

I have a utility trailer and a boat trailer with 1 7/8", 2 other boat trailers and a travel trailer with 2" , and a flatbed car hauler with 2 5/16".

Might I suggest a convert-a-ball? I've used one for years and it's absolutely the shizzle! http://www.etrailer.com/Merchant2/me...egory_Code=IBS
