camper (I’m loving the idea of having a pop up!) should I simply purchase one that has multiple size ball mounts? I know the older scamps have a 1 7/8” ball so wouldnt want to go with a 2” obviously. Does anyone have a specific part off etrailer that they would recommend? The tow package I ordered is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" - # 75690
Wait until you find the trailer and get whichever you need for it a a local auto parts or even Wal-Mart. The hitch itself my have to go up or down to tow level. If you installed a receiver hitch, then finding the right hitch and ball is easy.
We use a hitch that rises a little on our CRV to make the utility tow level. I would not tow the Campster
behind our 2012 CRV because it's weight
exceeds the listed capacity. That's not say you can't find a Campster
that will work. Ours has gained weight
over the last 48 years. You just need to be careful about advertised weight
versus real weight with supplies.
