Lightweight Trailer is Perfect for Hauling Kayaks or Canoes

MPG586XJ In Use

This lightweight and versatile trailer comes with J-style cradles so you can transport your favorite kayaks or canoes. Lightweight carriers secure your boat on its side, taking up less space and preventing boat-to-boat contact.


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.


MPG566 j-style cradle

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


Submersible Trailer Lights

MPG535 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.


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.

Review from a similar EcoLight in Trailers


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.

Review from a similar EcoLight in Trailers


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.

Ask the Experts about this Malone Trailers

  • How To Carry Two 76lb Kayaks With 2014 Honda Odyssey
    I may have another option, but since your two Old Town Sportsman 106 PDL kayaks weigh 76lbs each, and the roof rack weight capacity on your 2014 Honda Odyssey is 165lbs that only leaves you 13lbs available for the weight of the kayak carriers. Using two of the etrailer J-Style Kayak Carrier - Folding - Universal Mount # e98878 would add roughly 20lbs and would push you over the weight rating of your roof rack. Instead I recommend using a kayak trailer like the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer...

  • Replacement Lugs For Malone EcoLight Trailer

  • How To Carry Two E-Bikes and Kayaks On a Motorhome
    I have some great options for carrying two kayaks and two bikes behind a motorhome, the trailer will be best used for the kayaks due to the crossbar spread. I recommend the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer for 2 Kayaks part # MAL93FR for this. Then, in order to carry the two bikes you can use the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount part # 325-GH-414 along with a bike rack of your choice. The Hollywood Racks RV Rider Bike Rack part # HLY64FR is e-bike rated and can be used on a motorhome.

  • How To Carry 1 Canoe And 1 Sea Kayak On A 2003 Dodge Caravan With Bare Roof

To install these onto your roof you will also need Towers # Y00148, Adapters # Y03541, and Pads # Y00224. When hauling kayaks or canoes on the Yakima crossbars they need to be stacked and cannot be mounted side by side. Instead of the crossbars mentioned...

    If you are set on transporting your 2 fishing kayaks that are ~30 inches wide with the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer - 58" # MAL53FR, you will be able to transport your kayaks as long as they are transported with a j-style carrier. For this option, I recommend the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer that has 58" crossbars and has j-style that come with it. This is the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with J-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks # MAL93FR. The j-style cradles will be able to accommodate kayaks...

  • Carrying Kayaks On A Utility Trailer
    Without knowing the size of your trailer I cannot adequately answer whether or not it will work for your situation. Securing the kayaks, safely, in the trailer would be your greatest challenge. It is safer to attach and secure the kayaks to a dedicated kayak carrier, whether it is on the roof or crossbars on the trailer. There is less opportunity for the kayaks to move during transport. For example if you used a j-style carrier you would attach the kayak to the carrier, via cam straps,...

  • Watersports Trailer That Will Fit Through A 5'8" Gate
    The Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer with V-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks - 800 lbs # MAL52FR has crossbars that are not meant to be removed. The crossbars measure 78" long and for that reason I recommend going with a different trailer that will fit your 5'8" gate without removing anything from the trailer. I would look into the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with J-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks - 400 lbs # MAL93FR which has J-cradles for 2 kayaks just like the LowBed MicroSport. This will...

    I have a possible solution for you, but there are not any aftermarket roof racks available for your 2019 Chrysler Pacifica. You could try fitting a kayak carrier onto your current crossbars as this is your only option if you wish to transport kayaks on your roof. The two kayak carriers that come to mind are the SportRack Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - J-Style - Fixed Arms - Roof Mount # SR5511 and the Swagman Contour Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - J-Style - Fixed Arms # S65148.

  • Does The ClipperTRX Deluxe Come with a Taillight Setup?
    I have a great solution for you. Since the Malone ClipperTRX Deluxe Kayak/Canoe Cart with No-Flat Tires # MAL68FR is not made to be transported by a vehicle, you do not need rear taillights. However, if you are looking to transport a kayak on your vehicle, I recommend the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with J-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks # MAL93FR. The EcoLight Sport is great because it is designed to be towed by your vehicle, and it has an additional space if you choose to transport an...

If it has a bare roof you will need the 53" Thule Crossbars # TH711420, Thule Top Track Mounting System # THTP42, Rapid Podium Feet # TH460R, and Fit Kit # THKIT3101.
