Look for the manufacturers stamp or label of the correct trailer ball size on the coupler topside or underside, measure the coupler inside diameter, call Trail-Rite trailer (714) 556-4540 with the model / serial number OR buy both and return the one that does not fit.

2 inch ball. Former Catalina dealer who use to display the trailerable Catalina sailboats in Annapolis besides having a friend who designed that trailer for Catalina

@Crazy Dave Condon How do you know for sure that the hitch was not changed by someone in the past 17 years, possible after a crash or modified for a tongue extension?

I go by experience and knowledge plus Ron Frisosky designed that trailer. Frankly I would not trust a smaller ball. However, it is up to the owner as to what he wants. It is called safety and there is nothing more to say
