I need Hitch help I have a few ? about drop,class and ball size

Hi, I was curious what the most common/ do it all drop would be on a hitch I am looking to buy a new one and only want to carry one in the truck.

Also what are the most common ball sizes these days?

And what is the most common class rating?

Now I know this all depends on what you would be hauling, Which for me would be mostly 2 place up to 5 place Snowmobile trailer, Small horse trailer and a reg size landscape type trailer.

The reason I ask about common size is if I was out somewhere and needed to move something that was not mine.
