1969 Trade Wind Ball Hitch Size

Hi everyone! My first time on the forum and a first time AS owner. I'll be picking up our new treasure and towing her from CA to Vegas. I need to confirm the hitch ball size. No modifications have been done to this AS. I've read the ball size is 2" for the 1969 models. Can anyone confirm this for me? Thanks.

2" it is

It is 2". It's the only one I've got with a 2" ball. Oh I may be mistaken. the 59 has a 2" ball also.
