Now that's something to say about Airstream.

They can be consistently inconsistent, or is it the other way around?

It should be stamped on the coupler its self. Im pretty sure mine is, I know even my flat bed that used to be a Jet ski trailer is stamped with the ball size. Of course your trailer is older so Who know what size they used?
GOOD LUCK

Mike,

Thanks, yes I know it's a 2" I've towed it all over the place ; )

But I thought to look into it on the forums since we're heading cross country next week and I'm upgrading my safety chains and thought it might be a safety issue. But it looks like since our GT is so light (under 3,000 pounds) it's fine.

Cheers,


Dave
