Multipurpose Trailer Hauls Different Types of Boats and Cargo

MPG535 In Use

This heavy-duty trailer with 78" crossbars has extensive space to mount accessories like watersport carriers, bike racks, a fishing rod carrier, or a cargo box (sold separately). 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.

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.


Comments
Its been working out great! Diffidently was a good purchase. It handles my Hobie Outback kayak with ease. I can loadunload it easily by myself. I haul it with my Jeep wrangler. The trailer is lite enough that I can move it around myself. I did not install the storage box, because I feel that it needs support from the bottom. Im afraid with to many bumps on the road could cause it to fail. So I keep it inside the Jeep instead. Still Im glad I purchase the storage box, very handy.

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.

Sliding tongue and ability to store vertically against garage wall is great and very easy to do. Use trailer to haul a pair of 14 foot sit on top kayaks; hauls them well and is easy to load and tie down the kayaks.

This was the perfect solution for me. I needed a way to transport kayaks with a vehicle that did not work with rooftop racking systems. Not to mention much easier to load/unload than a roof rack. Customer service is very nice any very helpful. All and all, a great experience!

The trailer assembly was easy. The most difficult part, if any, was centering the support bars. We just wish it was 'Made in the USA' instead of China. etrailer expediently shipped the (4 total) packages. We were pleasantly surprised how quickly we received them. FYI: The registration documents are mailed separately. We look forward to loading up our kayaks and going fishing. Cheers!

Great trailer for my Hobie PA12 kayak. Pricing for this item is the same everywhere so service makes all the difference - etrailer and their rep Kathy delivered.

Review from a similar MicroSport in Trailers


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.


Comments
Im still completely satisfied with the Malone trailer. It hauls well on the highway and is easy to maneuver by hand into tight spaces, even with two fishing kayaks loaded. Ive been asked several times at the launch where I got it and Ive sent them directly to etrailer.

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.

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.

Review from a similar MicroSport in Trailers


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!

I love it. Easy for anyone to assemble. Great performance. This is definitely they way to go when loading and hauling kayaks. Tracks true behind my Cherokee, so easy to strap down the kayaks with the j hooks. Light system works great. In my opinion there are really no negatives. I will use etrailer in the future. Expert help. Very professional company. Doesn’t break the bank.

Review from a similar MicroSport in Trailers


The packaging left a little to be desired, so some pieces arrived dented. My sister and I assembled this in a few hours. I had to take some links off of the safety chains to avoid dragging. To install the Malone trunk, you have to drill holes in the trailer...why doesn't the trailer come pre-drilled with these? It already has numerous pre-drilled holes in it, some of which are not used...so why not have these holes for the trunk brackets pre-drilled? I removed the triangular skid off of the tongue of the trailer, once I saw how low it hung, which could be a problem. I then installed the jack-stand with the wheel, which was the best solution, trust me, but the jack-stand handle is an issue (see my review for it). I also added some DOT speced reflective tape for safety, after taking off the Malone decals. This is a nice trailer, but it is definitely overpriced for what you get. You can see in the pic that I have not yet flipped the ball hitch from the 2-3/4" drop side to the 3/4" rise, which I eventually did for the clearance. As always, thanks William B, for your help. You're the greatest.

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.

This trailer makes lifting my kayaks and bikes an easy alternative to putting the kayaks onto the top of my higher SUV. THe latching and tiedown points make safe travel for my adventure trips. Easily handles 2 kayaks very well. Bike tie downs are very easy also, and feel very safe taking these at highway speed on road trips to adventurous destinations. Very pleased with this highly usable product. Not bad to assemble and can easily move it with kayaks and bikes on it. Well balanced. So glad summers here again!

Well it finally came in over two months after ordering due to MFG back orders I have finally assembled the trailer and all my friends think it’s great. I have been roof top kayaking for many years but the constant loading unloading and reloading and unloading back home was starting to make me loose my joy of kayaking. Now with this trailer I hope to keep kayaking into my 90’s. And no back pain.

  • Can Spare Be Carried on Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT
    I attached a picture that shows where the spare part # MPG465 would mount on the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT that has a retractable tongue. The crossbar spread for this is between 44 and 63 inches normally which might get slightly reduced when carrying the spare, but in most cases there's no need for that much of a spread.
