Lightweight Trailer is Perfect for Hauling a Heavy Kayak or Canoe

MPG586XB In Use

This lightweight and versatile trailer comes with padded bunks so you can transport your favorite kayak or canoe. With a 6-3/4' 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.


MPG561 underside bunk

Heavy-duty bunks stabilize your boat and prevent movement while traveling on uneven or rough terrain. They can be adjusted to one side to install other clamp-on accessories (sold separately) and haul more gear. The bunks' durable padding prevents scuffs, scratches, or damage to your boat during transport. To prevent mold or mildew, the bunks have weather-resistant covers to repel moisture and water.


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.


CE48870 main harness to 4-way

The wiring for this trailer has a simple design, so it requires very little 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.


Run the wires of the tail light harness along the sides of the trailer frame and attach the individual wires into the matching wires on the side marker lights and the tail lights using wire connectors. The wires are color-coded so that you can easily match them up - no circuit tester is required. Once all of the wires are secure, 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.

Review from a similar EcoLight in Trailers


I’m very pleased with this trailer. The quality far exceeded my expectations. I will use it to transport my two 14 foot kayaks as I don’t feel like hoisting them to the roof of my car anymore. I am not mechanically inclined and was a bit intimidated when it arrived in three boxes. However the step by step instructions guided me through the assembly process and I put it all together over the course of a long afternoon.

Great trailer, easy assembly. Good directions, bad pictures. Use the etrailer assembly video! Solid, well made piece of road hardware. One note: I bought this to use my Yakima JayLow racks on, specifically because it says it will work with them. It will not. Although the rack can clamp on the 1 1/2" square bar, it is not stable and they will fall right off. I replaced the square bar with a 1" ID galvanized steel pipe cut to the correct length and it works great. Yakima says that rack is not really designed to clamp on square tubing.

'You get what you pay for'. The quality of the materials and fabrication made the assembling enjoyable without having to force pieces to 'make then fit'. Studying the instructions first, then going slow, made my trailer go together without issue. If I had it to do over again I would buy a Malone trailer without hesitation. Thank you for making such a quality product!

We received the trailer, it was easy to assemble after watching the video. The item was on back order and came directly from Malone. etrailer was more than helpful with guidance on when to expect delivery. Thanks for your help and great product!! Would recommend.

The trailer is outstanding. The customer service and sells staff are easy to contact and are very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. The only thing that needs improvement are the assembly instructions. The images are blurry and confusing (not a deal breaker). I highly recommend doing business with this company.

Straight forward instructions, went together easily and pleased with the final product. Exactly what I expected to tow a kayak and mountain bike.

Review from a similar EcoLight in Trailers


We have used the trailer for a few weeks now and we are generally satisfied with it. The trailer can be loaded easily and moved by hand even with two kayaks on it. It seems to ride Ok when towing at normal road speeds. Reversing it takes some practice, probably because it has a narrower track than the utility trailers that I've towed in the past. Assembly was Ok, although I agree with a another reviewer that you need to be comfortable using a torque wrench and wire strippers. The instructions need to be updated and clarified. It took me a while to figure out how the wire clips worked. I wish the wiring was heavier gauge for overall robustness.
