Microlite 23LB ball size

I'm picking up a 2017 23LB on Tuesday. What size hitch ball do they use? I couldn't find it on the FR website. Just getting prepared.

Average is 2 5/16 inch, your dealer may or may not give you one but I would push for it with a W D Hitch as will.

I've gotten everything I can out of them price wise. I'm happy with the deal. I have a weight distribution hitch system a buddy gave me. Just want to know the exact ball size.

Thanks! This is not my first RV. I've had a pop up and a 1985 Toyota Granville class C. Been tent camping for a couple of years now. Tired of that. It's my first new camper though.

2 5/16 is a safe bet. Haven't seen anything other than a small pop up with a 2" hitch

We have a 2016 Microlite 23 FBKS and it does use the 2 5/16 ball. Enjoy your new camper!

It will be 2 5/16"

Pretty much every dual axle trailer for a long time has been 2 5/16" in case you ever need to make a judgement call when towing something you are not familiar with in the future

Our 2109s is 2" which is essentially the 21FBRS.
