Lightweight Trailer is Perfect for Hauling Kayaks or Canoes

MPG461GU In Use

This lightweight trailer with saddle-style cradles let you transport your favorite kayaks or canoes. With a 7-1/2' long 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.

MPG461gu saddle-style cradle

Durable saddle-style kayak carriers are flexible and padded to prevent scuffs, scratches, or damage to your boat during transport. The high-grip, adjustable saddles stabilize your boat and prevent movement while traveling on uneven or rough terrain. Fabric covers on the rear saddles allow easy boat loading from the back of your trailer.

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.

This heavy-duty trailer is great for hauling 2 kayaks or canoes. Saddle-style carriers hold your boats securely by the hull. Soft cradles with high-grip pads protect your boat's finish. Marine-grade trailer supports boats up to 20' long.


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.


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


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.


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.


Bought this trailer because I was tired of getting on a ladder to put on the Yakima racks onto my Tahoe every time I wanted to take my Carolina Perception kayaks out for a cruise. Checked out eTrailer and saw this Malone MicroSport trailer and bought it. My wife and I had very few issues assembling it in about four hours (though strongly recommend you invest in a 9/16" gear wrench to make it really easy to tighten the many nuts). It's so easy to load the kayaks, strap them down and go. Wish I'd bought this trailer a long time ago. Afterwards, I decided the purchase the storage bin and jack stand to complete the setup!



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.


: 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.


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 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.


Nice trailer, easy to put together except it, being the low bed cane with directions for the high bed. But Etrailef send me the pdf for the low bed.


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.


This is a great trailer for the price.
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 were in constant contact and very supportive throughout the entire process and all the paperwork for registration came within a week .


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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!


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.


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


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


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.


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.


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


I used this for the full 2021 season on at least 20 trips. I use it for quick trips to local lake withe kayak, works perfect, leave boat on trailer, drop on hitch and go. Cust load and unload times in half. The order was complete Fubar, misteaks by all UPS< Malone and etrailer. Extra parts, wrong parts. But I was able to get a real person at etrail and it was all straighened out. Including the title and paper work I needed to register in MA. Assembly takes a bit, but if you pay attention to the directions, it is straight forward. The issues I had was because I didnt pay attention, mounted srpings backward, and did discover till much later, then you have to disseble much and redo to fix. Just go slow and check each step before proceeding.

  • Kayak Trailer Recommendation for Transporting Squamish and Perception Kayaks
    The Malone Microsport Trailer part # MPG461GU would be a great option for carrying your two kayaks as it can carry boats up to 20 feet in length, has an 800 lb weight capacity, and has saddles that easily slide in and out to accommodate the narrower width of your Squamish and Perception Carolina. The wheel size is also 12 inch like you wanted and the speed rating of the tire is higher at 70 mph. The bars are 78 inches long which is the shortest option we have.

  • Could Malone MicroSport Trailer Add Too Much Length When Towing Two Trailers
    The length limits for towing two trailers is typically around 65 feet so you should be fine but it might be worth checking to make sure this Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Kayaks # MPG461GU which measures 13 feet wouldn't put you over that figure. I'd be shocked if it did though!

  • Can Malone Trailer Carry a Pair of 32" Wide Fishing Kayaks
    We do have an option for a Malone trailer that will be able to carry your two 32" wide Pescador fishing kayaks, but the trailer you asked about does limit the kayaks to a 29" width. The option I recommend instead is: - Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Kayaks - Saddle Style # MPG461GU This trailer has long, 78" crossbars and two saddle-style kayak carriers which can be positioned at along the bars to fit kayaks that are 32" wide. According to my research your Pescador fishing kayaks come...

    The Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Kayaks # MPG461GU does need to be assembled when you receive it. As you can see from the cut out of the linked installation instructions I added, assembly only requires some basic tools, and it is really simple to put together; if you can turn a wrench you can definitely put this trailer together.

  • MicroSport Trailer with Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2-Hobie PA 14 Kayaks
    I really like the J-style kayak carriers like what the Malone Microsport Trailer part # MPG461G2 has. I attached a picture that shows this trailer carrying wider kayaks for you to check out as well. If you'd prefer they lay totally flat the SaddleUp style part # MPG461GU could work but I'd still rather recommend the J-style.

    I have a solution for you but no I am sorry to say the Malone MicroSport Trailer with Saddle Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks - 800 lbs item # MPG461GU. That trailer only has 78" crossbars and it would not be wide enough to accommodate your 40" wide kayaks.

  • Dimensions of Malone MicroSport Trailer for Storage
    The Malone MicroSport Trailer with Saddle Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks - 800 lbs # MPG461GU is 13'3" long with the tongue attached. The tongue is 90" long so removing it would leave you with 5'9" of trailer sitting up for storage. The wheel size isn't going to make a difference in the trailer performance when comparing the two. Although the # Y08107 has larger wheels, the overall height of the trailer is actually less when compared to the MicroSport. The MicroSport comes with a spare...

  • Recommended Kayak Trailer for Old Town Sportsman 106 Kayaks
    I recommend the Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Heavy Kayaks - 7' Bunks - 800 lbs # MPG461B2 for your Old Town Sportsman 106 Kayaks. This trailer will have no problem holding your 10'6" long x 36" wide kayaks. Based on the dimensions you gave me, it looks like you have the powered version that weighs 121 lbs. The # MPG461B2 has a maximum boat weight capacity of 225 lbs per boat so that is also more than enough. It uses 7' bunks to hold your kayaks and also comes with a full size spare....

  • Adapting a Malone MicroSport Trailer With Bunk Boards For Hauling and Launching a Bote Rover SUP
    To convert your Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG461GU to carry your Bote Rover SUP/Micro skiff you will need a couple parts to use it with launching at the boat ramp. First you will need the Malone MicroSport to LowBed Trailer Conversion Support Tubes # MAL33TR so you will be able to lower the height of the Bunk Kit # MPG561. This will allow you to mount the bunks as low on the trailer as possible so you will be able to more easily launch the Rover. The bunk kit is rated for up to 500lbs...

  • How To Carry Two Kayaks On a 2018 Toyota Highlander with Factory Roof Rack and Have Load Assist
    I do have an option for you but there are two issues you are going to run into trying to use the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier part # TH898 or the Yakima ShowDown Kayak or SUP Carrier part # Y04081. The first issues is that these are each over 40" long therefore you would not be able to fit two side by side and they both require there to be an overhang on the crossbars which the factory roof rack for a Toyota Highlander does not have.

  • How Long Crossbars Needed for Two Hullavators?
    You would need at least 60" long crossbars to carry two Hullavators # TH898 plus very significant roof weight capacity. For your 2020 Subaru Outback, the fitted crossbar length from Thule system is 47" with parts # TH711220, # TH710601, and # TH37CE. Getting 60" bars on your vehicle will have too much overhang which will neither fit the Hullavator nor will be safe.

  • Can I Put Two Hullavators on Pioneer Platform on 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited?
    My main concern is if your Jeep roof has the capacity for this whole set up. Two Hullavators + 150 lbs of kayaks + pioneer platform # JB0893 is a total of 320 lbs. You would also need 60" crossbars bars like # TH711520, or the 'not confirmed fit' 60" platform rack to get sufficient overhang on your Jeep. While I can still put together a list of parts for this system, I do not recommend using two Hullavators mainly due to weight and overhang obstacles. We have other load assist options...
