what hitch for lr3??

I have to buy some towing equipment over the internet and have a problem finding the right dimensions, not even from dealerships...... I need to prepare my LR3 to tow a 19,5 inch hitchball height Airstream (1980 caravelle). Its my intention to buy the Land Rover original 2" hitch receiver, but cannot find out what the height is of the top of the hitch receiver tube (and the distance of the tube pin hole from the back of the bumper). I also am not sure how to calculate what rise I should buy even if I had the info: If an airstream has a hitchball height of 19.5 should I than (assuming the top of the hitch receiver tube is 10") buy a hitch with a rise of 9.5" to the top of the ball platform, or is it 9.5" minus the ball height?
