I don't know what a 26rr is but if the ball isn't 2 & 5/16", I'd be shocked.

The 2" isn't rated over 8k. The gvwr on that rig is just under at 7686, which means it could be a 2". If it were me I would prefer it to be the 2 5/16". Looks like an owner or someone with firsthand knowledge will have to weigh in. I agree with Mr. Dan. This should be a 2 5/16" but a 2" is within spec...

Anything with 2 axles and brakes has a 2 5/16" ball. So I've been told.

I respectively disagree. I'm currently dragging an SOB that is 19' ultralight with dual axles and dual brakes with a 2" factory hitch. The only way to know for sure is to contact the factory, a dealer with one in stock, or someone with the same model. A general rule of thumb would be as you approach the 8000lb gvwr mark, you will generally see the switch to 2 5/16" as 8000lb is the max on a 2" ball.
