Heavy-duty Trailer Hauls Different Types of Boats and Cargo

MPG535 In Use

This heavy-duty trailer with 86" crossbars has extensive space to mount accessories like watersport carriers, bike racks, a fishing rod carrier, or a cargo box (sold separately). You can also mount 2 heavy-duty storage containers under the crossbars to hold all your gear while hauling your boats.

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.

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 when the jack isn't in use.

MPG535 manual crank jack with dwiveling wheel

An easy-to-use manual crank jack allows you to raise or lower the coupler height for quick trailer adjustment. The jack comes with a swiveling wheel that rotates 360 degrees for full trailer control. A built-in handle twists and locks into place, folding the jack in a horizontal position against the tongue when not in use.

Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer - 86" Crossbars - 1,000 lbs - MPG535

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (17 Customer Reviews)

Heavy-duty trailer is perfect for hauling canoes, kayaks, and SUPs. 86" Crossbars offer plenty of space to carry cargo boxes and other accessories. 14' Long marine-grade trailer with 10" wheels supports boats up to 20' long.


I was tried of lifting kayaks onto our Toyota Highlander and the ladder rack on our Ford F-250 4X4 truck. While I am in good shape, after 66 years of use, I decided that a kayak trailer would be a better option than sore shoulders. A trailer would also allow us to haul additional kayaks for outings with friends and family. After weighing all the scenarios, I settled on the Malone Megasport. It arrived amazingly fast and after about 5 hours the trailer materialized our of the 7 boxes. The assembly was straightforward and the great videos on the etrailer website helped considerably. After assembly, registering the trailer with our DMV was painless. The trailer tows easily, our kayaks are secure and the storage trunk (additional purchase) is massive and stores our pfds and associated gear. I installed 2 Malone Downloader J-hook kayak racks and a Malone Seawing rack. If I need to haul a fourth kayak, I will install another Downloader. The Megasport has been a great investment! The customer service and follow up was also great! Thank you, Kaylyn R.!
The only suggestion I have is that the folks at Malone should include rubber grommets to protect the wiring as it threads through the frame. I bought and installed grommets myself but I think they should have been supplied by the manufacturer.

We still love our Malone Megasport trailer. We can haul our 4 Eddyline kayaks without having to stand on a step stool to lift them on to our car or truck. I did order the Fulton bolt on fold away hinge kitalso from etrailer and installed it so the trailer more easily fits into our garage. The trailer was a great investment for us!


Received the kayak trailer in six boxes. Removed all the parts from the boxes and placed them on a large tarp in the order required by the instructions. I took my time putting the kayak trailer together since I am 80 years old and did not want to miss a step. I am very pleased with the results and I can load and unload my two kayaks easily

Very functional kayak trailer, stable when towing and easy on and off for an 81 year old kayaker


The trailer is working great!





The MALONE trailer is fantastic. Far more robust than I was expecting. Having just retired with more time to paddle, I was tired of taking the boats on and off the roof all the time, especially my 18' rowing shell with seat inside. My wife was too short to load anything except on top of our smallest car.
We live on an island and next year I may start a small kayak touring venture. The trailer will be perfect.
My only comment to help you improve would be better instructions for the add-on rack kit. The trailer instructions were perfect.

This trailer while functional, is not particularly user friendly. Thus far we have had 1 safety recall and 3 flat tires. I'd suggest adding lock tight to all of the provided nuts as an extra safety precaution as well otherwise they will rattle loose. The plates that hold up the branches need padding otherwise they cut into the kayaks when they are strapped in place. The license plate holder is also very low to the ground. My suggestion for anyone purchasing this is to drill holes into the back beam and make your own spot for the plate, otherwise it may get knocked off/ bent going over any bumps.


I've had the trailer for a year so far. I love it! Its light, easy to tow, and makes loading kayaks way easier than loading them on our car. Now, when we go kayaking, we regularly throw all our friends kayaks on the trailer too, makes pick ups at the end of a run way easier. I will never go back. We love this thing.


I love this trailer. it is perfect for my business. easy to set up, just takes time. sturdy. 10/10 recommend. the guys at etrailer are also top notch and will help you along the way and follow up on your needs well past the sale.


My trailer was on back order until the middle of October.But i got it on September 15 2020.I was very happy about that.Great customer service ! Love my new Malone Mega Sport trailer.Very well built !


The trailer works really well, light enough to maneuver by hand. It works with kayaks or canoes. I would pass on the cargo containers, everything in the metal one gets dirty and the plastic one is not dust proof or even rain proof.


Among the many sources for purchasing the trailer for my boat rental business, River house Boats in Rowlesburg, WV etrailer was straight forward about delivery and came through even before the projected delivery date. They have my highest rating! Tim Weaver, owner.


Trailer was easy to assemble and met or exceeded our expectations. Pulls well fully loaded with three Hobie kayaks and all our gear.




Great product, great price and great customer service.

  • Upgrading Tires on Malone MegaSport Trailer
    Changing a trailer's tire size does not necessarily equal an upgrade. The most useful way to add safety margin to a trailer is to change the Load Range rating of the existing tire size. I will explain why. Heat is a trailer tire's worst enemy. Heat is what causes most tire failures apart from outright punctures from road debris. The causes for excess heat in a tire are driving it too fast, overloading it beyond its weight rating or by incorrect inflation pressure, either too low or too...

  • Are All Parts of the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer Made in the USA
    I spoke with Malone and the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer part # MPG535 is USA made and assembled save for the leaf springs and wheels/tires. I don't think there are many leaf spring manufactures in the USA and I know there are only a few trailer tire manufactures. The trailer does have a five year warranty on the other hand so if anything were to go wrong with those parts then you would be covered.

  • Do I Need to Mount the Boats on the Crossbars of my Malone MegaSport Trailer
    I suppose you could use the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer - 86" Crossbars - 1000 lbs # MPG535 in this manner, but I don't necessarily recommend it since it's just going to scratch up the boats and might potentially obscure the lights and license plate. Typically we recommend using a kayak carrier on the crossbars to carry your boats since this is the safest and provides the easiest loading and unloading option for your kayaks; a good low cost option to protect the hulls of the boats...

  • Can 86 inch Crossbars be Added to Malone MegaSport Trailer
    The 86" crossbars on your Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer # MPG535 aren't available as replacements, but we do have the Crossbar Conversion Kit # MPG475 which comes with 78" crossbars that sit 13-3/4" tall if that works for your application. Keep in mind that this kit is for a standard utility trailer so you will need to figure out how to get the crossbars to fit the trailer.

  • Can the Malone Sliding Storage Drawer # MPG537 Fit Carriers Other Than the Malone MegaSport
    In theory, yes you could get the Sliding Storage Drawer # MPG537 to work on a different trailer, like your Highliner MBW8-14, but since it was made specifically for the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer # MPG535 you will have to do some modifications to your trailer. I have attached the installation instructions for the storage drawer so that you can see the steps necessary to install the drawer. Please note that the included rollers are supposed to sit between 2 cross beams that are about...

    The Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer # MPG535 has 86" wide crossbars so you will be able to lay both kayaks side-by-side and they will stick out 1" on either side. The best kayak carrier for your application is the Malone MegaWing Fishing Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG207 because you will be able to easily load up each kayak and it has a weight capacity of 150 lbs so it should be able to handle the size of your kayaks just fine. Obviously you'll need 1 set of this carrier per kayak. We...

  • Recommended Tire and Wheel Upgrade For Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer # MPG535
    I recommend upgrading to the Kenda Karrier S-Trail ST145/R12 Radial Tire w/ 12" Galvanized Spoke Wheel # AM31202 for the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer # MPG535. This radial tire is only roughly 3/4" taller than the stock tires which come on the trailer. The tires have a slightly higher load capacity which may cause the trailer to bounce more when unloaded due to the stiffer side walls. It is also speed rated up to 81mph and radial tires will run cooler for increased tread life.
