Tow hitch and ball

WE just got a 24' car hauler to put our Jeep Grand Cherokee and some art work in (because of the problems with the n-23 recall).
My question is the trailer people put a 7500 lbs hitch and a 7500 lbs ball.My M/H is raited for 10,000 lbs.
Do i need to get a 10,000 lbs hitch and ball?

Only if the loaded trailer is over #7,500, but even if it's close, going to a higher capacity hitch/ball may make you more comfortable with the safety margin.

p.s. After seeing your trailer in another post, I would definitely go the highest rated hitch/ball possible.

Those big trailers can put an extraordinary amount of stress on the hitch going down the road.

Careful loading/balancing is essential to ensure the hitch weight is not excessive.
