Depends on the tongue height of what you're towing

Measure from top of ball to the ground and top of trailer hitch to the ground, subtract=drop.

Not quite measure from the top of your receiver to the ground and the bottom of the trailers tongue to the ground when both are level the difference between the two is the amount of drop you need.
