I put a Dexter 45 degree down axle
on my 1988 Scamp
Deluxe in order to put 15" tires
on it... I wanted to match the same wheels as on my tug (that didn't work out like expected). Tires are Goodyear Marathons (ST205/75 R15) and I've experienced zero problems (knock wood). The axle
is an EZ-lube and the bearings are repacked according to the manufacturers recommendation... and grease. I don't go off road with the trailer, but no one would ever say Oregon's roads are smooth as glass either.
