Thread: Ball switching

    Ball switching

    I have mostly 1 7/8 trailers except jet ski which has a 2 inch ball. I have a load rite with a 06 Rxp.

    I can't find a class 2 hitch end for my trailer in 1 7/8 .

    I have a class 1 but I have drill new holes and it pulls 2000 lbs instead of 3500 like the class 2.

    I don't want to keep ball switching so what do I do?

    Is it safe to use the class 1 on my trailer??

    2 inch ball is the modern standard on anything but the lightest duty trailers.

    My suggestion is to upgrade the coupler on all your other trailers to 2 inch ball OR use two drawbars on your tow vehicle, one with 2 inch ball, and one with 1 7/8" ball.

    There are also some reversible or convertible balls that can be switched from 2 inch to 1 7/8 inch.

    Interesting ball.

    All of my other trailers are a light light duty trailers because I have a car.

    I was in Walmart and I couldn't even find a 2" ball with 3/4 shank. They must make them though, ill have to search somewhere else

    yea you can find them. I always got my hitches at a trailer specialty store. Another option is Uhaul. I had 2 hitches one I used and another kept for spare in my traieler box until some a**hole stole it off my truck!

    Try a local auto parts store. I've seen them at Pep Boys.
