I used Shoreland'r boat trailers in a former life. They look like Lil Snoozy trailers but had leaf spring suspension. They were a breeze to back up compared to the Scamp 13. I never had any problems with sway, and they tracked like a dream. The boats were 4-5,000 lbs.

LOL most probable due to the total length of the boat trailer being longer than the Scamp 13'? The shorter the trailer the harder it is to back up - the slightest of steering wheel movement results in big movement by little trailer. It does indeed take some getting use to!

Carlisle tire has a PDF on tips and best practices for towing and trailer tires.
Carlisle recommends (Best Practice) that towing speeds do not exceed 60 MPH
There was no mention in the article about towing at speeds above the tire's rating of 65 MPH.
