I did the same thing. I leveled the trailer tongue, backed the truck up to the hitch and measured down from the center of the receiver hitch opening to where the ball fits into the trailer hitch. that gave me the drop needed.

As far as receiver hitch Tongue Weight (TW) and Gross Trailer Weight (GTW), here's the specs for each class:

Class I Max TW: up to 200 lbs

Class I Max GTW: up to 2,000 lbs

Class II Max TW: up to 300 lbs

Class II Max GTW: up to 3,500 lbs.

Class III Max TW: up to 500 lbs

Class II Max GTW: up to 5,000 lbs.

Class IV Max TW: up to 1,000 lbs.

Class IV Max GTW: up to 10,000 lbs.
