What size are the bolts holding the tow hitch to the A frame? 10mm or 12mm, not bothered about the length.

The dandy is in France at the moment and I'm not. The previous owner had raised the hitch off the A frame with spacers by about 10cm. I assume to make it line up better with his tow ball, (the dandy spec is lower than standard) but the down side is the brake rod drags on the underside of the trailer frame. Not ideal.
So I want to reduce the spacer size which means new bolts, just want to know what size to get, as I will be doing it next time I pop over to see it.

It's annoying to say the least. When I was about to buy it I discovered the draw bar was seized, so took the hitch complete off the A frame to clean the rust off. It works fine now.
But I can't remember if I used a 17 or 19mm spanner.
