Unfortunately this model cannot be raised. I now haul a "parts store", but love my Scamp
I placed a simple skid bar under my 2004 Scamp13 and relocated the pump into the left front raised portion. This has worked perfectly for eleven years and protected the plumbing over 70,000 miles. As you know by now, it is better to watch your driving habits,( especially at driveways) than it is to do all that cringing!
I have not raised mine, but of course your model can be raised. there are several simple methods..
1] square tubing between the frame and axle
(just like they do on the fiver.
2] Replace the axle
with one identical to what you have except get a ZERO or 22 down instead of a 22 degree up angle. That way you can keep your present brakes
and save money.
3] you could order a 3500# axle
with shortened rubber to reduce the capacity to what you want (I suggest 2500#)
