1 7/8 seems to be common on smaller trailers.

The most common I've seen it 2" but then again all I've ever used are class III hitches.

So the ball thats bigger than 2" is just for larger trailers probably too large for our trucks?

2" hitch is the most standard for towing PWC, smaller boats (15-25'), small trailers...anything bigger, you're going to need a V8 or higher because it's going to weigh to much for our truck to tow

I tow two Sea-Doo's 2005 RXT on my truck, and when I go up the hill or just cruising I can really feel my truck working that engine

2" is what most average size trailers require. the smaller/light duty ones like small utility and boat trailers will take a 1 7/8"

2in. in the new standard. 1 7/8 used to come in small trailers now they just use 2in. So you will still see 1 7/8 one small trailers until they die.
