I don't actually understand the question, I believe you travel trailer will require a 2-5/16 ball on a receiver type hitch large enough for the weight.

My Mini Lite 2503S has a 600/6000 Equalizer.

My Roo 19 had a 400/4000 and the dealer who sold it to me (and also sold me the Mini Lite) was surprised his saleman had sold it to me when I told him I'd probably need a bigger Equalizer for the Mini Lite!

So you probably want at least a 600/6000.

Hi Kaboingy, are you talking what type of hitch (receiver) you need for your tow vehicle? III/IV or V?

Ok. They are saying the 10k hitch is what is needed and what they are doing. Does this seem right?

They are doing the 10k equalizer. Wanting to make sure this is the right one for the trailer.

Hi I just got 23SS and I got the 10k. I like a lot of margin when doing things. I pick up the trailer in Alabama and towed hone to Cali using the 4 way. I was very impressed

Also, on the Equalizer website, you can put in the particulars on your TT and it will tell you which one you need.
