Video Transcript for Malone MicroSport Trailer Review and Assembly

Colin: Hey everyone, it's Colin here at Etrailer. Today we're going to take a look at the Malone Microsport trailer and this trailer is very versatile. It allows you to get your bigger equipment like our kayaks or even our paddleboard or even got things like canoes or even cargo boxes. You can get those mounted to the trailer. That's going to create more space on the inside and on top of your vehicle for more cargo or accessories.With the 78 inch long square cross bars, you're going to be able to get a lot of different accessories mounted. You can see we have two kayak carriers and even a paddleboard carrier mounted with still gaps in between them.

And it has an 800 pound weight capacity, which we aren't even close to maxing out on with our current load.Now something I really like about this trailer is that it gives me the option to mount my heavier and larger equipment onto the trailer rather than having to get it above my head and on the roof rack of my vehicle. And it's also just going to make sure that you don't need that extra set of hands when trying to get your stuff loaded. It's literally just at hip and shoulder level. You can get it on the carrier, get it off with ease. And we also have that added benefit of not adding any extra height to the top of our vehicle.

So any low clearance situations, we're not going to need to worry about those.Now the length of the trailer is going to be 13 feet and three inches. Just keep that in mind when towing that you have that much length added to your vehicle. The trailer's also going to be very easy to operate. When we're ready to unhook, safety chains just come right off. Usually I like to wrap those around the tongue.

Our wiring comes out. Then all we have to do to get the ball mount unlocked, put that latch up. We have a nice handle right here with a rubber grip, then pull it right off. And the trailer is light enough to where when you get your cargo loaded back on the trailer, you can just roll it into your garage and it's going to be ready to go for next time.And that's going to be way easier than having to unload all of your gear from the top of your roof just to fit in your garage. We're also going to have this nice bump stop right here.

Just to set the trailer down and it'll hold itself up.Now we've brought the trailer inside and unloaded, so we can have a closer look at it. It is going to have a marine grade galvanized steel construction. That's going to be very durable and resist rust and corrosion. Your trailer tires are going to be able to handle speeds up to 75 miles per hour. So this is going to do just fine on the highway. We're also going to have steel fenders above each tire. That's going to prevent the tire from throwing up dirt and other debris onto the gear you have loaded to your trailer. Now there is also a spare tire option, which you can pick up separately here at Etrailer to bolt it and have it with you on the frame of your trailer.Your trailer is going to have two leaf springs, which will absorb a lot of impacts that you might encounter on the road. And it's also going to protect your gear from road vibrations that you might experience at highway speeds. Now if you don't have any type of carrier holding your gear down and you just set it on top of the cross bars. You'll have four of these D ring tiedown points that you can use to secure your cargo.Our LED lighting system is going to be very bright. That's going to make it easily visible even when the sun is shining very bright. We're also going to be able to fully submerge this trailer. That's going to make it a lot easier. So we could just back down the boat ramp and release our kayaks or canoes into the water, rather than having to carry them down there. It's going to put a lot less strain on your body. Now we're also going to have a light under our left taillight. That's going to help make sure that our license plate is visible at night. We're also going to have two amber side marker lights, which will work as auxiliary safety lights for your trailer.One thing that Malone included that's a great feature for the lighting system is that they're just plug and play. All we have to do to get them connected, once you have your wiring run through at the frame of your trailer. We'll use the bullet connectors, which is going to be great waterproof connections. Once you plug it in, it's going to be ready to go.What I really like about this trailer is that it's a completely galvanized steel construction. Some other trailers out on the market that I've seen have a lot of plastic components to them. Which could break a lot easier than the steel or even wear down faster, which means you're going to have to replace them a lot sooner. The steel of this is going to be very durable. And like I said, the galvanized part of is going to help it resist rust and corrosion.And I also really liked how easy it was to put together. Personally I thought the wiring was a breeze. All I had to do was run it through the frame of the trailer, just clip it up with the included clips. And then the bullet connectors just plug right up and then you're ready to use your lights. There's no splicing or anything like that involved.Now as far as the frame of the trailer goes. It may take you a little while. You might want to set aside an hour and a half to two hours to get it put together. But don't get overwhelmed. There is going to be a lot of different parts and a lot of different hardware. Just keep that all separate and use it when the instructions call for it. It's not going to be too difficult. Now that we've gone over all that, let's show you guys how to put this trailer together.Now the first thing we did was we set up the frame how it's going to be put together. You might notice that we do have it upside down. We're going to put it together that way, so that it's a little bit easier to get the spring and axle assembly installed.Now the first thing we're going to do is get the brackets for our spring and axle assembly installed. The C shaped ones are going to go on the back of our trailer. While the U shaped ones go on the front. They're all going to bolt together the same way. You can see right here, just the two holes on the frame of the trailer. The bracket sits right on top. Then we just drop a couple bolts through the bracket and the frame of the trailer. Take a couple of lock nuts and thread them on. You want to make sure you're installing the nut lock nuts on the inside of the frame of the trailer. And now we'll just grab our wrench and socket and tighten it down.Now at the front end of the tongue of our trailer, we're going to feed our wiring that's going to go all the way through the tongue and towards the frame of the trailer. How we know that we have the front end is one, there's a sticker right here. The warning sticker's going to towards the front of the tongue. We also have that triangle set of holes right there. That also let's us know it's the front. So we're just going to let gravity do the work and just feed the wire all the way through.Now we have it out the other end. Just going to feed it through the connecting bracket right here. Just leave it right there. Now we're going to take the bolt included on our kit. This is going to be the longest bolt of your assembly. We're just going to pull the frame, line it up inside that bracket. And because our trailer is upside down right now, we're going to pick it up and then feed it through the bottom. Just like that. Now we'll get a flat washer and a lock nut and all we're going to do is hand tighten it for now.Now we have the bracket slid in. We're just going to get the carriage bolts installed on the bracket. On the inside, go flat washer and a lock nut. Just like the bracket bolt, we're just going to hand tighten for now. And then repeat this for the other side. And now we'll just apply a flat washer to our bolts and feed them through the two slots, connecting the tongue of our trailer to the frame. Go flat washer on both sides again. And then hand tighten our lock nuts. With our carriage bolts, we're now going to get the center beams installed on the frame with the lock nuts on the inside. Just hand tightened, make sure you go around and get the other six hand tightened as well.Now we're going to go around and get all of the bolts tightened down. We're going to start here at the back with the carriage bolts on the center beams in our frame. And then make our way up towards the tongue of the trailer. Now we can go ahead and assemble our spring and axle assembly. There's going to be a bolt right here, goes into the hole on our axle. Then we put the U bolt plate on that knob. We'll bring our U bolts up through the bottom and then put two lock nuts on. Do our second U bolt. And now we'll just tighten everything down. And now we'll repeat this process for other side, making sure we set the spring in the exact same formation.Now we'll set our assembly in place, making sure to get the flat part of the springs into the C brackets. And then the eye holes of our springs into the U brackets. Now we'll feed the bolts through the eyes of our springs. Put a lock nut on, hand tighten on both sides.Now we're ready to get our wheels installed while the frame is still upside down. I'm going to take our hub cap first and slide it through the back of the wheel like so. That'll catch on the sides. We'll put it on the axle of our trailer. And now we can get our lug nuts hand tightened. Now in a star pattern, we'll go around and tighten down all of our lug nuts. Then repeat this process for the other side.Now we're going to get the lights and brackets assembled. The brackets right here are going to go on the side of our trailer. Then you see the big hole right there is where our light is going to go. So just put it on the side, stick a couple bolts in there. Then we'll put some lock nuts on and tighten them down.On the driver's side of your trailer, don't forget once you get the bolts through the slots to put your license plate holder on there as well. And now we'll plug in the wiring from the tongue of our trailer to the wiring that's going to go back to our lights. From there, just make sure you run the appropriate wires to the appropriate lights. And then don't forget to clip your wiring to the sides to make sure it stays out of the way.Now you will have a little bit left over right by the bracket, which is connecting both the sides. However, make sure you don't get the two heads right here inside the tongue of the trailer. That bolt right there is to prevent them from being pulled by the other side and disconnecting your wires. But if you want, you could just grab a zip tie, put it right there and then zip tie it up to clean it up a little bit.Now when installing the brackets on your fenders, we're just going to set it from the bottom. Apply our bolts through the top. Hold them there and then apply our lock nuts. Then repeat this for the other side. Now with a flathead screwdriver, we're going to hold the other side of the bolt in place, and then tighten down all four bolts. Now with a flat washer and a bolt, we're just going to feed it through that center hole right there. And then apply another flat washer and a lock nut. And do that for both sides. Now we'll just tighten up all the bolts.Now on our coupler and safety chains, we'll get the safety chains installed first. We have a flat washer on the ends of our two chains on there. We'll push it up through that bracket and hold it there. Then we'll just apply a flat washer and a lock nut. Just get that threaded on there and tightened down. And now we'll tighten it down all the way.Now with our coupler, we'll just set that down and line it up with the holes. Before we install the bolts, you want to pick which side the handle goes on. Doesn't necessarily matter too much, just whatever you feel more comfortable with. We'll apply the bolt through the handle and then through the coupler. Get it all the way through and then the other bolt. Then apply lock nuts to the other side. Now we'll tighten everything down.Now we're going to start assembling our upper deck with the cross bars. The support bar's going to go one on the back end of the trailer. The other one's going to go about 48 inches up towards the front. Now we just drop our U bolts on top. Bring the plate and then we'll put two lock nuts on. Once you have it set where you want it, we'll tighten everything down.Now we have one of our cross bars just sitting on top of the support bar right here. We're going to take these brackets. It's going to go over top like so. Make sure you line up the bottom holes with the bolt all the way through. Then we'll put a lock nut on there. And now with the cross bar, what we're going to do is that's going to come straight up. And the second bolt's going to sit right under it. And do this for both sides. Then we'll go around and tighten all four bolts.Now on both of your cross bars, be sure that the one hole on the outside of each side of the bar is facing towards the inside of the trailer. Now our final step is going to be to get our D rings installed in those holes. I'm just going to apply a flat washer and then put the bolt through there. Now I'm going to slide my finger in and line it up with that hole and then start to thread it on there. Once you've gone as far as you can with your hands, what I'm going to do is a nice little trick. Take a pair of needle nose pliers. We're going to feed the pliers in and clamp down on that lock nut. Get a good grip. Now we'll tighten it down. Doesn't have to be super tight. You can see it's pretty snug. Now just repeat this step for all the other sides and then put your end caps on.Well thank you all for watching. That's going to do it for our look at the Malone Microsport trailer.

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! 724698

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. They provided excellent communications and updates on shipping and a timely receipt of the MCO made it easy to title. Overall a professional experience. Thank you! 553537

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. 578983

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. 670791

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. 697393

Review from a similar Malone MicroSport in Trailers

This is a sturdy trailer and I'm very satisfied with the product and process. The instructions were probably the most thorough I've ever seen. The title and bill of sale come separately probably so it can't be stolen with all the paperwork 607745

Review from a similar Malone MicroSport in Trailers

The Malone trailer is a high quality product, much nicer than I had anticipated. I use it to transport my 10 foot RIB, which is very light. I needed something small, but substantial to tow smooth. I recently used it to tow the boat 6 hours (350 miles) down to Virginia, and then back a week later, and it towed wonderfully. Also, the staff at etrailer and also at Malone were pretty great to work with. I couldn't recommend this trailer more, and I plan to do all my trailer business with etrailer. 545168

  • Length, Width, and Height of Malone MicroSport Trailer Using Retractable Tongue Kit
    On the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G the overall width side to side is 65 inches because the crossbars are the widest part of it. The trailer itself is about 55 inches wide if the bars were taking off. The overall length without an extension is 14 feet but that can be adjusted to be shorter using the retractable tongue kit you mentioned # MPG494. The overall height to the top of a crossbar is 30-1/2 inches. The tongue by itself is 8 feet long. The use of the retractable kit reduces...

    We actually carry the spare tire that fits the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G. The spare is # MPG465 and does have a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. With that being said it would be more cost effective for you to purchase two 4.80-12 trailer tires, like # TTWSF48012C, and have them mounted to the existing rims. If you need valve stems, # AM20904 will handle the 80 psi needed for these tires. I recommend these Taskmasters because they have an 81 mph speed rating, which is higher than...

  • Trailer Recommendation to Carry 3 Heavy Kayaks
    I looked up the kayaks that you have and estimated that at the most the kayaks together could weigh as much as 328 pounds. This is within the capacity of many trailers we have including the Malone MicroSport # MPG460G. The capacity does not include the weight of the trailer itself since the trailer is supporting itself at the wheels. But the crossbars on the MicroSport are only 65 inches long which seems like a lot but when you start to load kayaks on it you will soon realize that it...

To tow the trailer level you need a ball mount with a rise. Park your Nissan Altima on level ground and measure from the ground the inner top of the receiver hitch. When we installed the Draw-Tite hitch on an Altima we measured 10-1/4 inches. You'll likely be close to this but measure your car so you're sure. Then subtract your measurement from...

  • Can 2 Kayaks and 2 SUPs Fit on the Malone XtraLight Trailer MPG525G
    On the Malone trailer # MPG525G the crossbars are 58 inches long. If you were to place the kayaks side by side and on their sides using a carrier such as the Nautic # RRS520 and then placed the SUPS stacked next to the kayaks the overall width of all those products is likely going to be greater than 58 inches. So really you just need a version of the trailer with longer bars. Trailer # MPG460G has 65 inch long bars. You can do a rough measurement ahead of time by putting the kayaks on...

  • Can Malone MicroSport Trailer Use Thule Accessories
    The Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G can absolutely utilize your Thule accessories because it uses standard square crossbars which are the same as those you would find on a roof rack. So using the MicroSport trailer is a lot like utilizing a roof rack that you are towing behind your vehicle. The biggest difference is this trailer is a whole lot easier to access than the top of most roofs. If you are looking for the easiest way to haul a kayak, this is it. I have added a photo...

  • Can the XtraLight Trailer # MPG526G-J be Used to Carry 2 Kayaks and a 33" Wide Paddleboard
    We actually have a Malone Trailer like the XtraLight # MPG526G-J already setup so I went out and measured between the uprights that those J-Style carriers mount inside of and the distance was only about 26-1/2" which means your 33" wide paddleboard won't fit with this setup. Instead you will want to use the MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G along with J-Style kayak carriers like 2 sets of the # MPG116MD and then a crossbar pad like part # MPG315 for your paddleboard. The crossbars on this...

  • Can Four of the Malone Pilot Bike Rack for Trailers be Used on Malone Kayak Trailer
    You can absolutely use four of the Malone Pilot TC ST Bike Rack for Trailers # MPG2100 on the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G. The MicroSport uses 65" long crossbars and the Pilot bike rack is 12" wide so you will not have any issue putting four of these next to each other on this trailer. I've added links to video reviews of both parts for you to take a look at.

  • Roof Rack Basket Needed for Use on a Malone Roof Rack Trailer
    The crossbars of the Malone MegaSport Trailer # MPG535 are 68" apart and are fixed in their locations. The Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504 that you referenced is compatible with a variety of crossbar spreads but the longest is 37-1/2". Instead of the MegaSport I recommend going with the MicroSport # MPG460G which has a crossbar spread minimum of 44" and maximum of 63". This then allows you to use the Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504-EXT which is the exact same basket you referenced just...

  • Trailer Jack Recommendation for Boat Trailer with Suntracker Party Barge
    I looked up pictures of the trailers that are used with the Suntracker Party Barges and the Malone Trailer Jack part # MPG538 would fit as this is a standard jack but it wouldn't have the capacity since this jack is designed for very light duty trailers ( # MPG460G). Instead the Fulton jack part # FTJ12000101 would be a very similar jack that would fit.

  • Can Load Bar Spacing on Malone MicroSport Trailer Be Adjusted for Smaller Bike Rack
    The load bars on the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G can be adjusted just a bit to create a spread as small as 44 inches. If this pushes the spread into a compatible dimension for your bike rack then you're good to go. If your carrier is still too short then your only option to use a bike rack with the trailer will be to replace your rack with a new model that features a longer profile. For this the Malone Pilot TC ST Bike Rack # MPG2100 will work perfectly. This 65" long carrier...

  • Kenda LoadStar Tires to Replace OEM Tires on Malone MicroSport Trailer MPG460G
    Malone specifies 12-inch 5-lug galvanized wheels/tires on their MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G. The Kenda LoadStar 4.80-12 bias ply trailer wheel/tire # AM30670 will work fine as a replacement since these have a 990-lb weight capacity per tire at their rated inflation pressure of 90-psi. This is more than enough for the trailer's GVWR.

  • Replacement Wheel Stud for Malone MicroSport Trailers
    Sorry to hear about that! The wheel studs part # K12WB169 would be what you'd need for the hub of your rebranded Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G that you referenced. Hopefully karma catches up with that guy.

  • Availability of Crossbar System from the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G
    The Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G uses crossbars like what you would find on the roof of a vehicle instead of bunk boards. This is sold on our site as the Malone Crossbar Conversion Kit # MPG475 and it comes with the mounting hardware.
