The best way to choose the correct ball mount before purchasing one is to take two measurements.

The first measurement is going to be from the ground to the top of your trailer hitch receiver opening. That will be your hitch height.

The second measurement is going to be from the ground to the bottom of your trailer coupler when your trailer is level. This is going to be your coupler height.

If your hitch height is greater than your coupler height, then you will want to subtract the coupler height from the hitch height to find the correct drop. If your coupler height is greater than your hitch height, then you will subtract the hitch height from the coupler height to find the correct rise.

I have attached an article on ball mounts for you to review that should tell you everything you need to know about selecting the correct ball mount.
