I looking for the correct ball size for the trailer. I looked the trailer tongue area over and could not find any size stamped. The GVWR is 6000 LB, GAWR is 5200. Any help would be appreciated.

Look closely on top of the coupler. There should be some info scratched onto the coupler, including something that looks like 2 5/16".

If there is no info on the coupler (the part of the tongue that fits over the ball), then go to Wal-Mart and buy a 2 + 5/16ths inch ball. Take that 2 5/16th ball to the trailer and see if it fits. If its too big for the coupler, then Wal-Mart will give you a full refund. Then buy a 2-inch ball.

My TT with GVWR of 5,600 has a 2 5/16th coupler. My utility trailer with GVWR of 5,000 pounds has coupler for a 2" ball. So I'll bet your trailer has a coupler for a 2 5/16th inch ball,
Grumpy ole man with over 50 years towing experience. Now my heaviest trailer is a 7,000-pound enclosed cargo trailer, RV is a 5,600 pound Skyline Nomad Joey 196S, and my tow vehicle is a 2012 F-150 3.5L EcoBoost SuperCrew.
