My wife and I are picking up our new 2021 2200bh in 2 weeks. I've searched a lot of websites looking for the ball size for the hitch and I haven't found anything that definitively states the size needed for a 2200bh. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Should be 2 5/16". Your dealer can look at the coupler and tell you for certain - it should be stamped on it.

BTW, welcome to the forum! Overlooked that in my previous post. Happy to have you.

Thanks! We're excited to start the camping season in something besides a tent! My kids are more excited than we are....

When you go to buy a 2 5/16" ball, make sure you get one that has the correct weight rating.... The maximum weight capacity is stamped on the ball.

You don't want to be towing a 5000 pound trailer with a ball rated at 5000 pounds when for $2 more you can buy a ball rated at 10,000 pounds....

Also, make sure the threaded part of the ball is the correct diameter for the hitch you're installing it on. You don't want to have a 1/2" shank hitch "wobbling" in a 3/4" receiver hole... That's a sure way to "shear the shank and have a trailer "tied to the truck with the chains"...

Pay attention to "which ball you buy" they aren't all the same that come in different colors....

Check with the Dealer, go see them. It is stamped on the Trailer Ball receiver. Get a good one, buy a tube of lube. Consider a good Equalizing Hitch, you will likely need it. A good investment. Not a lot of sense getting a receiver and ball if you need a Equalizing Hitch, double work.
