Lift for 2001 Scamp 19

After years of problems with 13” tires on my 19 “ Scamp I am looking to lift the trailer and use 14” or 15” tires. I want to use Goodyear Endurance tires. The only trailer tire made in America. I also want to up my weight to tire capacity.
I see Scamp is using 14 and 15 “ tires.
Questions are how much lift are they using and what size tires. I am also looking for a shop that could perform this task.
Thanks for Sharing your experiences in advance
Taylor

Don't have a 19, but the 16' still uses 13" tires. We upgraded ours from 13" to 14" ST205/75R14 with no problems and no extra lift. Nice having the option to use Goodyear Endurance "made in USA" tires.
If you want the ultimate tire combo you can do what Merle Lilly (RIP) did with his Scamp 19, shown below.

Upgrade tire size

We changed out the axle to 3500# rated, and 5-lug 15" 8-ply tires. Gave us a bit more clearance (we had already added extension for height to original axle, & a different neck to reach the Tundra bed). We had to increase the setting on the neck with the upgraded axle.
