Lightweight Trailer is Perfect for Hauling Kayaks or Canoes

MPG464-LBM In Use

This lightweight and low-profile trailer with V-style cradles lets you transport your favorite kayaks or canoes. Because of the trailer's low-profile design, the crossbars sit only 22" off the ground. The lower crossbars provide a safe height to load heavy kayaks and help avoid unnecessary overhead lifting.


With a 7-1/2' tongue, this trailer offers exceptional clearance during tight turns. The extended tongue also makes it easier to back up the trailer and prevent binding than trailers with shorter tongues.


MPG461GS v-style cradle

Durable V-style kayak carriers with rubber padding prevent scuffs, scratches, or damage to your boat during transport. The saddles stabilize your boat and prevent movement while traveling on uneven or rough terrain.


Submersible LED Trailer Lights

MPG535 LED tail lights

The DOT-approved tail lights on this trailer are fully submersible, so you don't have to worry about damaging the lights when loading and unloading your boat in water. Each tail light has brake, running light, and turn signal functions, as well as side marker lights and reflectors. In addition, these LED lights last longer, burn brighter, and require less power than incandescent bulbs.


Plug-and-Play Trailer Wiring

CE48870 main harness to 4-way

The wiring for this trailer has a simple plug-and-play design, so it doesn't require any cutting or splicing to install. As you assemble the trailer, route the main wiring harness through the trailer tongue and down towards the body of the trailer. Then plug the 4-wire end of the tail light harness into the main harness.


CE48870 4-way plug

Run the wires of the tail light harness along the sides of the trailer frame and plug the individual wires into the matching wires on the side marker lights and the tail lights. The wires are color-coded so that you can easily match them up - no circuit tester is required. Once all of the wires are plugged in, use the included clips to secure the harness to the frame.


CE48870 4-way plug

When you're ready to connect the trailer to your vehicle, simply plug the trailer end of the main harness into the 4-way flat connector on your vehicle.


Leaf Spring Suspension

MPG535 leaf spring suspension

This trailer includes a leaf spring suspension system to limit road shock while you tow. A sturdy steel axle runs beneath the trailer frame. The 2 slipper springs that support the axle flex to absorb the rough motion that can occur when driving over bumpy terrain. Also, the axle, spring hangers, and tie plate are galvanized to resist rust and corrosion.


Quick and Easy Trailer Hookup

MPG535 trigger style coupler

Hooking this trailer to your vehicle is quick and easy. The trailer's coupler connects to a 2" hitch ball, and the included safety chains act as an emergency measure if the coupler accidentally disconnects from your hitch ball. A rubber coated lift handle is mounted to the coupler to provide a solid grip for lifting or maneuvering the trailer. Finally, the skid plate on the underside of the trailer tongue keeps the coupler from touching the ground.

Have used the trailer a few times and I am well pleased with how it performs.
I wanted something that made it easy to transport our kayaks and this fit the
need. Our kayaks were easy to load and transport, if you need an easy way to get your kayak to the water this will fill your needs



by:

: Didn't work out at all considering with the j-hooks installed the trailer is way too deep to hug a wall, so I store the trailer outside with a tarp over it. If you have to store the trailer with the tongue retracted, this is a must have.



by:

I researched a number of different trailer options for my pair of Hobie fishing kayaks. Due to their weight, proper support was crucial to prevent long term sagging. I liked the multiple options available with the Malone Microsport trailer and went with the twin bunk option.

The Microsport trailer is sturdy and easy to assemble. The instructions were detailed and easy to understand. I also took advantage of assembly video on the etrailer.com website. All this being said, I found the estimated 3 hour assembly time to be overly optimistic. (It took me about 5 hours.)

I like the fact that all of the parts are galvanized. Living in a rainy area and using the trailer to store the kayaks when not in use, rust prevention is important to me. I'm confident the trailer will last a long time.

I've already towed my kayaks over 100 miles to our vacation home without incident. The trailer towed like a dream. The LED lights are bright and easy to see from behind, even though the kayaks overhang the back of the trailer by at least 4 feet. I was not concerned about drivers behind me not being able to see my turn signals and break lights.

All in all, the Malone Microsport trailer is great, reasonably-priced trailer for kayaks and canoes. It also makes a great rack to store them on, if you have the space.



by:

We have used and enjoyed the kayak trailer for about a year. It is a pleasure to arrive home from a kayak trip and I just unhook the trailer and back it into the garage. No more have to lift the kayaks on and off the top of the pickup. During winter I remove the support bars, and tongue to set the trailer up on end against the wall. The only issue has been the wing nuts on kayak holders. I could not tightened them so that the holders move during transport. To solve this issue I replaced the wing nuts with lock nuts. Also the bolt head slips during the tightening of the lock nuts. Other than that, we love the trailer.



by:

Can't say enough about the quality and prices. Ashley and Bridgette in CS were extremely helpful in helping me get what I needed in a Kayak trailer, and their follow up was extraordinary. Malone trailer is very sturdy, assembly instructions were right on. Paper work for title and registration was sent to me asap after delivery of the trailer. Trailer tows and tracks very well.



by:

This is a great trailer for the price.
I
found the packaging and instructions pretty straightforward and easy to follow.
Once together it seems quite solid and I really like the LED lights.
The crew at etrailer.com were in constant contact and very supportive throughout the entire process and all the paperwork for registration came within a week .



by:

Good quality trailer. Went together easy, had all the parts even though the main packaging was torn open from shippment. Got it licensed with no problems.
I will be hauling my 2019 Hobie Outback on this trailer. Also mounted a 6" tube for
my fishing poles. Will also be adding the storage box. Have not had it on the road
yet. I like the size of this trailer, not very heavy or to large.



by:

Due to the pandemic, I waited 2 months to receive the trailer. It all arrived in good shape and I was able to assemble it easily. I was pleasantly surprised that the hardware and wiring harness had been upgraded to be more robust. I am waiting for plates and then I will see how it does on the road.



by:

Took my wife and I 4hrs to put it together. Instructions were accurate and easy to follow. Perfect fit for our two pedal drive kayaks 12ft And 14ft. Tip- using battery powered impact wrench would have made the process much faster. Very pleased with the results and thanks etrailer for another great shopping experience.

The search for a trailer to carry our two Hobie Kayaks was extensive. My main concern was finding one that could carry the two heavy (83 lbs. ea.), travel at highway speeds and be easy to use. This Malone MicroSport trailer has turned out to be great. It is easy to get our kayaks on and off the trailer at the lake. Rhino-rack Nautic roof rack carriers were installed to carry the kayaks because I wanted them to provide conforming support for the hulls. They have proven to be capable of carrying the weight of the Hobie kayaks and the kayaks can be slid on them when loading/off-loading. This was a primary concern because capacity is not listed with most carriers. Assembly of the trailer was fairly easy and I would rate it requiring moderate mechanical skill. Before doing this assembly I watched a fantastic video online, walking you through the assembly.

I would add just a couple things. Those include: 1. It would be easier to do most of the assembly on a table, until you get to the wheels. Especially true for us older folks that don't bend so well. 2. Be sure to read the wiring harness installation a few times before installation. It is tricky, but will work if you follow the instructions correctly. There is barely enough wire to connect the tail lights. I wound up having to splice some wire because of problems I had. 3. You will need to get some grommets to protect the wires going through the holes in the frame. They are not supplied with the kit. Other than that the trailer works great,very solid and have had no issues traveling at highway speeds. Attached is a photo of the trailer with the kayaks.

Trailer directions straight forward. All materials identifiable, quality made and on hand. Take your time to do it right. Taking on kayak trip this weekend!



by:

Bought the LowBed MicroSport specifically for my Blue Sky Boat Works Angler 360 kayak. Trailer works great! It's lower and makes getting the kayak on and off easier. Had no issues with the trailer assembly. LED lights work great. After one year I'm very happy I bought this trailer.



by:

I started building the trailer yesterday afternoon and just finished it an hour ago after spending three more hours on it today. It went together very well. Institutions were very clear. I am very happy with it. I am attaching a photo.



by:

Excellent Instructions made assembly straightforward without miss-steps. In my case, 6 hours and assembled.



by:

Love this trailer! Works perfect for 1 to 4 kayaks. Easy to Tow! Used on multiple trips & is still working great! Purchased in 2021.



by:

Excellent trailer for my two kayaks …nice not to have to lift kayaks onto top of car ….



by:

Was able to order the item when it was not in stock. Trailer was sent directly from Malone but without a proper bill of sale. Now I'm getting the run around and have a trailer that can't be registered.



by:

I cannot think where I was ever more impressed with a company than Monroe. They were very attentive and never was there a more easier task than building my trailer. There was nothing missing, and it went together with perfection. Not knowing, but a year before I bought the trailer package, I purchased a kayak 2 wheeled portage cart. Wanting a premier carrier, i bought the best , most stable built cart on the market. It so happens that it was a monroe cart as well. Great group of engineers working on innovation everyday.



by:

Always great service ! Any problems and they step up making things right. Highly recommend Etrailer



by:

Nice trailer... easy to assemble... reminded me of a full size Mysto Manufacturing Company Erector set from my childhood. Instructions were clear... everything made sense.



by:

After receiving the 7 boxes, it took me about 5 hours to put it together. All parts and hardware were there and the trailer went together perfectly. I highly recommend this trailer. My Malibu and Caper Ocean Kayaks fit perfectly and should make transporting easier.



by:

Super trailer. Trails beautifully, fun to build, looks great and gets a lot of compliments at our put-ins.



by:

Ideal in fit, form and function.Design allows well for transporting same or mixed use sports equipment. Trailer was shipped ahead of schedule thru FedEx.Directions and video was easy to follow for assembly. Paperwork required for registration was shipped promptly about a week later.



by:

Product was as advertised, however it was missing four bolts that I had to get at a hardware store, but other than that it was fine. Service from etrailer team was outstanding.



by:

Great trailer to hold my large fishing kayaks. I am glad I went with this solution as I can permanently store my kayaks on the trailer under my lean to. The trailer took a while to build admittedly and I did have to run to the hardware store to grab a nut I was shorted and replace a metric carriage bolt with thread damage, but overall it is a solid product that drives well and I highly recommend.

A couple notes: The lighting kit is a 4 pin, so you may need to get an adapter if you have an older vehicle (mine had a 7 pin circle style plug only). Also, there is no space tire holder on the trailer like you see in the pictures so you will either have to throw it in your vehicle or acquire parts to attach it to the trailer.

  • Recommended Kayak Trailer For Hauling Two 10 Foot Kayaks That Can Store In a Small Area
    I do have a trailer option that I think will meet your needs, since the tongue on the Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer # MAL52FR is not adjustable. I recommend the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with J-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks # MAL93FR as this trailer is only 10'9" long compared to the LowBed that is 13" 3" long.

    The Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer with V-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks - 800 lbs # MAL52FR has crossbars that are not meant to be removed.

  • Kayak Trailer Recommendation for 107 lb and 63 lb Kayaks
    I recommend using the Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer with V-Style Carriers # MAL52FR because the kayak carriers sit lower to the ground so it will be easier to load your heavy kayaks (weight capacity is 150 lbs per kayak). This comes with everything you need from kayak carrier to trailer wiring to safety chains so this is the only kit you'll need!
