I agree with the Convert-a-ball.
I disagree on the 2" drop.
I've seen way too many people towing trailers with the hitch ball too high and the trailer isn't level and yet they still try to drive at 55+mph and the trailer is swaying all over the road endangering both themselves and those around them.
If you will be towing a variety of trailers, do yourself and everyone on the road a favor and buy an adjustable ball mount. Harbor Freight has a decent unit for a good price. Due to the design, you will feel/hear clunking as you drive over bumps, but at least the trailer will be properly leveled and you won't endanger those around you. (It's what I bought for general towing, once I buy a boat I will buy a solid mount with the proper drop for the boat trailer.)
If you can't stand the clunking over bumps, the nice ones will run around $200 from some place online like Etrailer.com
