Timbren Axle-Less

Has anyone installed a Timbren Axle-less system on a Scamp 13'?
I have to replace my current axle, a Duraflex 1200 lb, on my 2008 Scamp 13'.
I am seriously considering the Timbren Axle-less with 7" electric brakes available at etrailer.com.
I would appreciate any info. Will the Scamp frame tolerate the torsional stresses at the attach point? Go to etrailer.com to view the Timbren-axle-less products.
Thanks,
Jerry

The Timbren system seems to be becoming a 'fashion' choice, though it's hard to see why it's any better than a rubber torsion system (which it nearly is).

Under a Scamp frame, it would be necessary to add the square tube cross-member that Timbren advise, so it becomes a build-it-yourself full axle.

I could see this as an possible choice if you were building an off road trailer ground up, but although it says no welding, reading the install instructions means no welding after all the modifications(welding) is done.
