Video Transcript for Review of Malone 78" Galvanized Heavy Duty Crossbars For Malone MicroSport Trailers - MPG4001

Hi, everybody. Andy here with And today, we're gonna take a brief look at the 78 inch long galvanized heavy-duty crossbars for your Malone MicroSport trailers. Now, these heavy-duty galvanized crossbars are designed for your Malone MicroSport trailers to provide additional bar length and increase the load capacity to your sport trailer. They're designed for items such as your heavy fishing kayaks, multiple boat transport, and those needing to add bikes or cargo box to their trailer. As you can see on the table before me, all of the mounting hardware that you need to successfully install these bars are included, along with end caps for each ends of the bars, and instructions to guide you step by step.

Let me pull out my tape measure here just to confirm that length with you. We are sitting right at 78 inches long. And then the width of these bars, we are sitting right at an inch and a quarter wide on each of these bars. Well, that's gonna conclude our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you.

Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

Galvanized cross bars for Malone MicroSport trailers. Provide additional bar length to existing sport trailers. Designed for heavy fishing kayaks, multiple boat transport and those needing to add bikes or cargo box to the trailer.


The new 78" load bars fit perfectly. Easy install and the extra width is great for 2 Malone Mega wings to fit 2 Old Town 120s. Shipping was faster than anticipated and everything arrived safe.


Box was open and hardware was missing.

Customer Service will reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 12/06/2021


This is my second build. I automatically considered your products and remain extremely satisfied. When build number 3 comes along, I'll be back.


Excellent product. Box was delivered open and missing parts. I called your customer service number and missing parts was sent immediately. Thank you for the product and missing parts


Order went smoothly and received it very quickly. Always love shopping with eTrailer!


This bar fits better on my trailer. It’s longer so kayaks have more space. It’s larger with size keeps the J hooks more secure too. It was easy to install myself, and I’m 74 yo woman. E trailer delivers


Worked great, replacing bent crossbars.


pleasure to do business with


always the fastest and most accurate


The product was just what I ordered. I'm expanding my kayak trailer to hold up to 4, so I ordered wider cross bars and another carrier. A little frustrating to find it was not really in stock, however, communication from the etrailer team was outstanding.


Works well, allows me to put 3 kayaks on my Malone trailer.


Great product. Needed to add two more kayaks to my trailer. Install was a breeze.

Crossbar has been working like a charm. No issues!
John W - 09/28/2020


The parts for my kayak trailer arrived complete and very quickly. It was a pleasure working with Robert S. when placing my order.

    The weight capacity of the Malone roof bike rack part # MPG2100 that you referenced is 33 lbs. If the weight of your E-bikes is less than that with the battery removed this would work.

  • Is There a Difference Between Malone Crossbars
    The Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers - 78" Long - Galvanized - Heavy Duty # MPG4001 are an updated version of the Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers - 78" MPG495. They are 78" and can be used in place of MicroSport trailers that have shorter bars.

  • Could Malone Crossbar kit part # MPG4001 Attach to Side Rails of Utility Trailer
    While the Malone Crossbar kit part # MPG4001 wasn't intended to be installed like you mentioned that doesn't mean you couldn't do so. If you wanted to use U-bolts you'd need to find ones that are 1-1/4 inch wide since that's how wide the bars are.

  • How To Carry 2 Hobies On A Malone Extra Light Trailer
    I contacted Malone and the Malone XtraLight Trailer (MPG525) is not compatible with Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers - 78" Long part # MPG4001. The only trailer that can use the longer cross bars is the Malone Microsport trailers that came with 65" standard load bars. The bars on the XtraLight Trailer are almost 5 feet and I know Hobies can be over 2 feet wide so If you are trying to carry the Hobies flat and side by side they may not fit especially with the W style Hobie cradle....

  • Is There A Way To Convert The Malone MicroSport With A High Bed To A Low Bed?
    I checked to see if there was conversion kit to convert your Malone high bed trailer to a low bed # MPG464-LB. I know this isn't going to be ideal, but what you can do is reuse the U-bolts from the cross bars you have now, and reattach the cross bars # MPG4001 with an aluminum bar mounted horizontally across the trailer, as shown in the picture attached. I wish there was a simpler and easier solution, but unfortunately there isn't one. As far as backing your trailer into water, you...

    Since you already have the Malone MicroSport Trailer - Galvanized Steel - 13' Long - 78" Crossbars - 800 lbs # MPG460G already comes with the Malone Crossbar Conversion Kit for Standard Utility Trailer # MPG475. It sounds like you are just looking for the lower crossbars but there isn't a conversion kit option for those bars.

  • Strongest Crossbar Option For A 2013 Malone MicroSport Trailer Hauling 4 Grumman 17 Foot Canoes
    You are indeed correct, the Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers # MPG4001 for the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G & the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT does have a combined weight capacity of 375-lbs. Compared to the Inno Square Crossbars # IN436L that you are interested in, which has a maximum weight capacity of 220-lbs, the Malone crossbars are the much better option.

  • Malone EcoLight Trailer Conversion To Use Malone Bunk Board Kit
    The Bunk Kit for Malone Trailers # MPG561 is designed to fit the 1-1/4" Crossbars # MPG4001 currently used on Malone trailers. You can still use them with your crossbars but will need to account for the difference in size with some flat steel/aluminum to prevent the mounts from slipping around. I recommend getting the updated crossbars and mounting them using the Malone MicroSport to LowBed Trailer Conversion Support Tubes # MAL33TR as this will lower the mounts on the trailer making it...

  • Can The Malone Crossbars and 2nd Tier Crossbars Be Used With a Small Boat Trailer?
    We do offer the Crossbars # MPG4001 and 2nd Tier Load Bar System # MPG474 like you see on the Malone 2 Tier LowBed MicroSport Trailer # MPG464-LBT. As these are specifically designed to bolt to the Malone trailer you may have to do some customization to fit on your trailer. You will be able to use the Yakima Crossbar Pads # Y07415 to provide a padding for your kayaks and paddle boards.

  • Which Malone Roof Rack on Wheels Trailer Has 78 inch Long Crossbars
    The crossbars of the EcoLight trailers like the # MAL53FR are different from the Microsport trailer bars like the # MPG4001 you mentioned. They are a different size and attach to the trailer differently. If you want a trailer with this bar length you'd need to go with the MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G which has twice the weight capacity too at 800 lbs.

These are the brackets that come with the Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers - 78" Long - Galvanized - Heavy Duty # MPG4001.
