A WDH for a unit with a GVWR of less than 3300#? It hardly hits the prerequisite of needing brakes. The unit itself is only a couple hundred pounds over a ton. Methinks a WDH is overkill. Maybe an E2 if you want to go that route, but a full blown 4pt Equalizer is way too much IMHO.
But to answer the OP's question, a 2" ball is required. And as Brimare57
states, the drop of the draw bar is very important.
