It looks like your coupler has a 2-5/16 inch ball. (2 did not stamp correctly) If you are asking to buy a hitch for a tow vehicle, it would be class 4.

Good luck

That's not the OP's coupler, just provided for reference.

Standard is 2 5/16". It's stamped on the trailer tongue.

Actually for A-frames and pop-ups with under 3500lb max gross weight, standard is a 2" ball.

To clarify - The photo I shared is on my toyhauler A-Frame which uses a 2-5/16" ball and a Class IV hitch, has a 6" frame. I only took a photo to show the OP where to find the info.

Most of the other FR A-Frame models use a 2" ball and a Class III hitch.

Hopefully the OP has received his answer if asking about the ball size check the tongue of the trailer probably either 2 5/16 or 2 inch.
This Hitch looks like you could tow and attach a bike rack on the upper part is that possible?

Yes, but.....

1 The bicycles will greatly impinge on the turning radius.

2 A frames are tongue heavy already, make sure you don't overburden your rear axle (excessive suspension wear) or take too much off the front (reduced braking and steering).

Be careful and visit a scale to be sure the setup is safe.

When on our last outing I was talking with a fellow Camper on the road who informed me about air bag's. At first I thought he meant passenger air bag's of which I said we already had those he laughed and explained that these air bag's are installed somewhere on the back leaf spring and can be adjusted so when towing the tow vehicle would not ride all the way down on the rear axle that might be something to look into if it looked like a problem, thanks for the info I didn't think about turning radius
