Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (5 Customer Reviews)

- MPG494

This saved the day with regards to being able to keep the trailer in my garage with my two vehicles.

Well worth the extra cost to add the sliding tongue option; allows me to fold it in and store the trailer vertically in my garage with ease.

  • Can Malone # MPG494 Retractable Tongue Kit Be Added to Malone # MAL53FR EcoLight Sport Trailer?
    The Malone # MPG494 Retractable Tongue Kit cannot be added to a Malone # MAL53FR EcoLight Sport Trailer. It only fits the Malone # MPG460G Microsport Trailer.

  • Will the Retractable Tongue Kit Work On a Malone XtraLight Trailer
    The Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit part # FHDPB230101 is what I recommend for a Malone XtraLight Trailer part # MPG525G. The Retractable Tongue Kit for Malone MicroSport Trailers part # MPG494 will fit on the tongue but the MicroSport has a one piece tongue and the XtraLight has a two piece tongue so the connection point between the two tongue pieces on the XtraLight could create issues. The Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit could be installed on the tongue of the Malone XtraLight...

  • Length, Width, and Height of Malone MicroSport Trailer Using Retractable Tongue Kit
    On the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G the overall width side to side is 65 inches because the crossbars are the widest part of it. The trailer itself is about 55 inches wide if the bars were taking off. The overall length without an extension is 14 feet but that can be adjusted to be shorter using the retractable tongue kit you mentioned # MPG494. The overall height to the top of a crossbar is 30-1/2 inches. The tongue by itself is 8 feet long. The use of the retractable kit reduces...

  • Spare Tire for Malone EcoLight Trailer Compatibility With Retractable Tongue Kit
    The Spare Tire for Malone EcoLight Trailer # MAL33FR is compatible with # MAL53FR, # MAL73FR, # MAL93FR, # MAL63FR and # MAL43FR but the trailer tongues are the same as the Retractable Tongue Kit for Malone MicroSport Trailers # MPG494 so it will fit.

  • Spare Tire Carrier Retractable Tongue and Kickstand for Malone MicroSport Trailer
    The correct spare wheel/tire and carrier for the Malone MicroSport trailer part # MPG464-LB is the part # MPG465 which is designed to attach to the tongue of the trailer. The retactable tongue kit that fits this trailer is the # MPG494 which decreases the length of the trailer by 61 inches. And then for the "kickstand" we also have the Trailer Tongue Kickstand for Malone Trailers # MPG467 which is basically just a swivel trailer jack. All of these can be installed at the same time as well.

  • Does Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Extra Heavy Boats Come with Two Sets of Bunks
    The Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Extra Heavy Boats - 13foot Long - 800 lbs # MPG461B2 that you referenced does come with 2 sets of bunks for carrying two kayaks. You can use the retractable tongue kit part # MPG494 with this as well. The size and weights of your kayaks would easily work well on this as it has an 800 lb capacity.

  • Can Malone Kayak Carrier Trailers Speed Rating Increase
    Since you are looking for a trailer that has a retractable tongue for easier storage the best trailer is the Malone Trailer part # MPG460XT. You can use the retractable tongue kit part # MPG494 to convert the part # MPG460G to basically the part # MPG460XT but that's not really the best route. Thule kayak carriers like the TH848 can install on the square bars of this trailer. The tires of the trailer are limited to 65 mph, but you could could add different tires with a higher speed rating...

  • Will the Malone Retractable Tongue Kit Fit A CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Trailer
    The CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Trailer part # CE48870 and the Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG460G which is what the Retractable Tongue Kit for Malone MicroSport Trailers part # MPG494 is designed for both have a 2" x 3" trailer tongue so the Retractable Tongue Kit should in theory work as well but we have not tested this. The other option you have is a fold-away tongue kit, the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit part # FHDPB230101 which we do know will work.
