I'm saying that although the 7" brakes are adequate for a 13Scamp, they are not likely to lockup with stock sized 13" tires. The 7" brakes were designed to work well up to the 2200 pound axle capacity, but also to fit with 8"wheels since snowmobile trailers and such commonly use that sized axle. The smaller tire would most likely lock up. No worries though they still work well. Think of the larger tire as a cheap ABS!

No need to guess the braking performance is indeed very much depended on the adjustment of the actual trailers brakes not just the setting on the controller itself.

Always a good idea to check and adjust the trailer brakes each year at the same time you repack your wheel bearings.
