The brakes that scamp sells for their 13 trailers are 7" brakes which appear to be relatively rare. 10" brakes seem to be more popular and appear to cost less.

Is it possible to put 10" brakes on a scamp?? Are there any disadvantages to upsizing the brakes?? Will 10s even fit?

Scamp, and other, use the 7" brakes because that's what the axle manfs use on that small axle (Dexter #9) -- You can't substitute 10" brakes because the spindles and hubs are different -- You would have to change the axle out for a #10, rubbered at 2,300 lbs to use 10" brakes.

There are numerous sources for 7" parts, like Redneck Trailer Supply, Scamp, Trailer Parts Depot, Northern Tools, RV dealers which sell pop-ups, etc.
