Let's attack the problem slightly from the other direction 'Is the Alko hitch compatible with your tow bar/ball'?

Making an assumption here as you've left us guessing with most of the required info! Assuming you have a Alko AKS 3004 stabilised hitch on your van, then the owners manual gives the dimensions necessary for a compatible tow bar and ball, look at pages 4 and 5 in the following manual, note dimensions are to CENTRE LINE of ball: https://ukshop.alko-tech.com/media/uploads/AKS3004HandbookWhiteDigital.pdf

These hitches are bulkier than non damped hitches and require greater clearance between ball and bumper to avoid contact, AND under the actual ball to allow articulation.

If that's not your hitch, then seek out the relevant user manual, that may give equivalent dimensions. A quick look at Aragon website and current range of balls all APPEAR to be compatible types, but that doesn't take into account actual clearance between ball and bumper when fitted on your car. https://www.enganchesaragon.com/eng/enganches-bolas
