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

Review from a similar Malone MicroSport in Trailers

Great trailer easy to put together. Hardest part is getting the title and bill of sale . Seems to me that would come with trailer. I have been waiting two weeks on my title so I can use it and I’m still waiting. 657032

Review from a similar Malone MicroSport in Trailers

I just received the parts for the trailer and will be putting it together shortly. I plan on transporting my recent purchase of 4 Kayaks. I like the fact that I can load the Kayaks a little more closer to the ground then having to lift them up high. 651542

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

Do you have a question about this Trailer?

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Dimensions of the 78" Malone Crossbars # MPG495
  • When these crossbars are used with the MicroSport # MPG460G and MicroSportXT # MPG460XT trailers they can hold up to 375 lbs. They are 1" high and 1-1/4" wide. Please note that the individual bars don't have a "weight capacity" as they are supposed to be used with these trailers, which have a combined capacity of the 375 lbs.

  • Recommended Canoe Carrier For Short Bed Truck
  • The longest load extender is the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender for 2" Hitches - 400 lbs # EM07600. This is 52-1/2" long x 48-1/2" wide. For a 16 foot canoe, there really isn't a good solution for such a short bed without going onto the roof. I recommend the Darby Extend-A-Truck Kayak Carrier w/ Hitch Mounted Load Extender and Single-Bar Roof Rack # DTA944-968-924 for your application. If you really don't want anything on your roof, then I recommend the Malone MicroSport Trailer -...

  • Malone Kayak Trailer to Carry Two 12 Foot Long Hobie Kayaks
  • The Malone MicroSport Trailer that includes the SaddleUp Pro Kayak Carrier, part # MPG461SU, is only designed to carry 1 kayak. Instead, I recommend using the MicroSport, part # MPG460G, which is the same trailer without the SaddleUp Pro, and adding 2 of the J-Pro, part # MPG116MD, to carry the kayaks. I've attached videos of both of them. If you need any equipment for your vehicle to be able to tow a trailer let me know the year, make, and model and I can make some recommendations...

  • 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...

  • Replacement 4.80-12 Sized Tires for Malone MircroSport Trailer
  • 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...

  • 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.

  • How to Install the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons on a Malone MicroSport Trailer
  • I have two options that will allow you to install the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers part # CE27620 on your Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG460G. The first option would be to install the guide posts in front of the wheels just before the a-frame of the trailer comes together. You can see this location in the attached photo. The other option I have for you would be to relocate the taillights. Once the taillights are removed (2 bolts), you can then install the guide...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • How to Register a Malone MicroSport Trailer Part # MPG460G
  • The Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG460G comes with all of the necessary related documents that will be needed to register the trailer. Once you obtain these documents you will want to take them with you to your local department of motor vehicles (DMV) to register the trailer. If you are looking for specific information on towing a trailer in NJ then you would need to contact your local Department of Transportation (DOT).

  • Can Malone Kayak Carrier Trailers Speed Rating Increase
  • Since you are looking for a trailer that has a retractable tongue for easier storage the best trailer is the Malone Trailer part # MPG460XT. You can use the retractable tongue kit part # MPG494 to convert the part # MPG460G to basically the part # MPG460XT but that's not really the best route. Thule kayak carriers like the part # TH848 can install on the square bars of this trailer. The tires of the trailer are limited to 65 mph, but you could could add different tires with a higher...

  • Recommended Small Boat Trailer that Can Fit in Truck Bed and Can Be Assembled At Campsite
  • For your 11 foot inflatable boat, I recommend the CE Smith Boat Trailer for Boats and PWCs up to 12' Long - 800 lbs # CE48810. This trailer can be disassembled, transported in the bed of your truck, and reassembled at your campsite. It is 12 feet long when assembled and weighs just 212 lbs. I've attached a review of this trailer to assist. It has a weight capacity of 800 lbs. Another great option is the Malone MicroSport Trailer - Galvanized Steel Wheels - 13' Long - 375 lbs #...

  • 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. If you are wanting carpeted bunk boards instead we have them in the following lengths: 2' - # CE27850 3' - # CE27800 4' - # CE27810 5' - # CE27820 6' - # CE27840 These come in pairs.

  • Trailer for Hobie Kayak That Can Withstand Saltwater
  • We do carry a number of trailers which are designed to be corrosion-resistant. The Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G has a galvanized steel frame as well as galvanized wheels and coated steel crossbars; this trailer has a 375 lb capacity. For something with a larger capacity there is the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer # MPG535 which is also made of galvanized steel and has a 1,000 lb capacity.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Extension for Kayak Trailer for 21 Foot Tandem Kayak
  • There is not an extension available for the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G, but there is one for the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107. The Tongue Extension Kit for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08109 will allow you to carry a 21 foot kayak. The Rack and Roll has a 250 lb capacity but it can be upped to 350 lbs with HD Shocks # Y08110.

  • 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...
