Ball size for 88 Scamp 13

I'm picking up a 1988 Scamp 13 tomorrow for my daughter. Can someone tell what size ball they use?

From the Scamp web site....

Prior to 2005, most 13 foot trailers used a 1 and 7/8 inch ball.

Sounds right. My Scamp is a 1992 and uses 1 7/8th ball.

But a coupler could have been changed anytime in the last 30 plus years so it could be 2 inch.. did you ask the seller?

Scamp Ball Size

My 2005 has a ball size of 1-7/8. The trailer tongue tip should have the correct size etched into it. When my hitch was installed on car, they put a 2" ball on it. Went thru 2 couplers before trailer maint. co discovered problem.

Balls are cheap - buy both sizes, look for etched marking, return unwanted ball.

+10 Regardless of what the trailer originally came with, it has had 30 years for someone to change out the coupling. I would take both sizes, and return the one you don't use.
