What type of hitch is this?

I received an email asking what type of hitch I have on my camper. But, I don't have a clue. Is there enough info in this photo for someone to be able to identify it?

They are probably asking for the ball size. It will be stamped on the ball you use. But the standard for FR AFrames is 2 inches.

My previous FR which was a 185 (small camper) had a 2-5/16" coupler.

The correct ball size should be stamped into the top of the coupler. Probably covered by the safety chains in this pic. & painted over.

If you look at the top of the trailer tongue, you will see the sizes and capacities stamped there.

Actually, your pic shows the A-frame and its coupler.

A hitch is what the coupler attaches to. That may what the email is asking about.

The hitch goes into your tow vehicle's hitch receiver.

I'd toolk it that the OP's inquirer was asking about the ball size, since they asked about "trailer hitch type" unless they wondered if it was a pintle connection versus a ball? I remember when I was shopping for a smaller trailer, I ran across a few teardrop trailers that used pintle hooks.

Could have been inquiring about a weight distribution hitch which there are several types or just a standard hitch as well.

Could be any of these hitches 3 different types any could pull a TT or others.

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.
