What size ball does the hitch on the TT call for? That is the size you should use. This size may be stamped somewhere near the receiver or at the very least should be in the documentation that came with your rig.

Any store that carries trailer supplies will have a 2 5/16" ball, also WalMarts, farm supply stores, auto supply stores,etc. I don't think the gooseneck ball is the same.
