Hitch ball

I have a 1979 Safari 23'. Someone stole the hitch from my truck. How do I measure what ball size I need (I can't remember) or is there a standard size Airstream uses on the A frame coupler? I'm 3 hours from the nearest RV shop so I would like to eliminate trial and error.

Its 2 5/16 Im pretty sure Airstream is all Standard.When U buy a new Drawbar and Ball Invest in a DogBOne Lock for the DrawBar and a Gorilla Gard for the trailer. It's money well spent.
Good Luck
Roger
