Video Transcript for Malone MicroSportXT Trailer Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Malone MicroSport XT Trailer with a retractable tongue, part number MPG460XT. The Malone MicroSport XT Trailer can be delivered right to your door. It's perfect for hauling your recreational gear to campsite, beach, sandbar or trails. As you can see, we got a kayak and paddle board loaded up, but it's also going to work out great for bike racks, cargo boxes, and cargo baskets. It has a 75 inch long tongue. This is going to give us more clearance when making those corners, and it'll prevent anything coming in contact with our vehicle.

So it'll be especially great for those elongated kayaks, or any other elongated gear we might have with us.It's about 13 feet long, and 65 inches wide. With our gear removed, you can see our square bars. These are what make our trailers 65 inches wide. They are plastic coated, so we don't have to worry about them harming or scratching our gear. They also feature raised grooves on top for grip.

This is what's going to prevent our accessories from shifting along the bar.The rear crossbar is fixed, however the front one is adjustable along the a-frame. This gives you the adjustability between 44 and 63 inches. The advantage to this is being able to customize it to your load.It features 12 inch aluminum wheels with diamond plate fenders for style. It has a solid axle with a leaf spring suspension, and has a max speed rating of 70 miles an hour.It's set up to work with your two inch ball. It includes safety chains, and it's fully wired to work with your four pole connection.

This is going to give you your running lights, your turn signals, and your brake lights. It also features amber and red side marker lights.The frame is made out of a marine grade galvanized steel construction, and only weighs 195 pounds unloaded. It includes a license plate bracket, and the title is included. That way you can remain legal.The skid plate protects our coupler when it's uncoupled, and the coupler handle makes an easy maneuver, and attach and detach from our ball. It uses a trigger style latch.

It's easy to use. It even features a hole so you can pass a lock through for more security.If you're apprehensive about assembling the trailer, while it is time consuming, it's pretty straight forward. When it comes to the wiring, it's even easier. There's no cutting or splicing, it's color coded, and it uses bullet connectors.When you're all done using your trailer, one of its best features is, it has a retractable tongue. This makes storing it a lot easier. How it works is, you'll remove the panning clip here. You'll need to slightly pick up on the tongue to pull it out. From there, you'll want to make sure that your harness is disconnected just behind the tongue, then what I like to do is push trailer up against the wall until it makes contact with the rubber bumpers, that way we can easily push our tongue without the trailer moving. Then, we can just push until our rear bracket's hole lines up with our tongue's hole. Now, when we line up the holes we want to be sure that the bracket goes inside the tongue, so we can pick up and pull it back just like that. Then we can reinsert our pin, and clip to lock it in place.From there, we're ready to store it. We can walk it up on its end using the rear bumpers. Once we've got it up it'll stay there on its own. As you can see, this way takes up way less space than if you we're to store it normally in your driveway, or in your garage. When you're ready to use it you'll simply walk it down, and then you reverse your steps.And that's going to complete our look at the Malone MicroSport XT Trailer with retractable tongue, part number MPG460XT.

Great trailer so light you don't even know its behind you. Tracks well and looks stylish. Great customer service too. I will always use etrailer for my trailer needs. 543177

The XT is a nice trailer for the price and I was able to assemble it working 1-2 hours a night after work relatively easily. Total build time was 5-6 hours and I was doing it leisurely to avoid mistakes. One area that might cause trouble occurs when the retractable tongue box is mated up to the frame. Make sure the two sides of the frame are even/symmetrical as you tighten everything up. Use a rubber mallet to gently adjust if needed. The only area of questionable design for me (and others consulting [online videos]) is how little clearance there is between the fenders and the side running lights. As well, the fenders are not totally flush with the frame/they actually pull tight to the heads of the carriage bolts holding the tail light assemblies which seems like a design flaw to me. Another focus of this review is the excellent support I received after the sale. Firstly, I ordered this over the phone and it shipped same-day thanks to Hally and the folks in the packing/shipping group. I found that I did not immediately receive the paperwork needed to register/plate the trailer; I reached Nicholas who followed-up and had them in the mail that same day. Finally, when I was titling it at my State's Office of Motor Vehicles, I found that I neglected to bring a copy of the receipt showing that etrailer collected the sales tax. Dianna quickly researched my order and not only emailed a copy of the trailer VIN, sale's tax, sale price, etc. to my local Branch, she also patiently waited on the phone with me for a good 5-10 minutes while the agent double-checked that info and physically titled the trailer. I am extremely happy with this level of customer support after-the-sale, and highly recommend etrailer. 700014

Very impressed by the tires. The will be very nice for a long road trip. The wiring harness was impressive too. The LED version was two pieces, the rear piece and the extension piece. The extension piece was simple. However, the rear piece was so brilliantly manufactured that all of the side lights and tail lights were plug-n-play and the color coding was fool proof. I'm glad I had my impact drill and socket set adapter or I would have been cranking on nuts and bolts for a while. It did take me more than 3 hours to put together but it was a fun project. Coupled with the Malone Stax Pro2 Two Kayak Rack and two Swagman Upright Roof Bike Carriers we will easily haul our two kayaks and bicycles regional and for longer road trips with my 2015 Hyundai Sonata. 555360

Ask the Experts about this Malone Trailers

  • Does the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer MPG460XT Comes With Heavy Duty Crossbars
    Yes, if you order the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer part # MPG460XT from us, it will come with the new galvanized heavy duty crossbars but I cannot guarantee others will not have old stock. The photo has not yet been updated to show the bar change but rest assured you will receive these new bars with your purchase of the trailer. In regards to the retractable tongue, if you choose to omit this you can absolutely install the Tongue Mounted Crossbar part # MPG4002 in its place. I confirmed...

  • Recommended Theft Deterring Kayak Saddles and Straps for the Malone Microsport XT trailer
    The Malone MicroSportXT Trailer - Aluminum Wheels - Retractable Tongue - 13' Long - 375 lbs # MPG460XT is a great option for the storage reasons you stated. The Rhino-Rack Nautic Roof Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Side Loading - Clamp On # RR570 will work well on those crossbars and do have the theft deterring security tool and hardware you stated than many alternative options do not offer. I think these will be a great fit for you. If you want additional security with the kayaks loaded...

  • What is the Coupler Height of the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT
    I spoke with my contact at Malone who said that the coupler height of the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT is 15". When we installed the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76138 on a 2017 Mazda CX-5 the coupler height (from the ground to the top of the inside of the receiver) measured 13". If this is the case with your 2018 model then that means you will need a ball mount with a 2" rise. The Curt Fusion Ball Mount # C45155 is a great option as it has a 2-1/4" rise (the...

  • 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...

  • Malone Microsport XT Trailer Compatibility with Spare Tire Holder
    The Spare Tire for Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG465 will fit on the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer with Retractable Tongue # MPG460XT. You may also be interested in a padlock like # ML1KA for that application. For your Subaru OEM ball mount, the Curt 2" Hitch Ball - 3/4" Diameter x 2-1/8" Long Shank # C40018 is the correct fit.

  • Can Malone MicroSport XT Trailer Carry 17 Foot Kayak
    Yes! You can absolutely carry a 17 foot kayak on the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT. In fact I reached out to my contact at Malone and she said this particular trailer is designed to hold a kayak that is up to 20 feet in length and it has an overall weight capacity of 375 pounds. . This is a great choice to transport your kayak along with any other adventure items you may have. It features a pre-wired electrical system with a standard 4-Way connector and is made right here in...

  • How Much Space Does Retractable Tongue of Malone MicroSport Trailer Save
    I believe you were referencing the length of the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT in regards to the retractable tongue kit (though you were likely thinking height in terms of storage, which would be completely understandable). The retractable tongue kit on this trailer decreases the length by a full 61 inches; the trailer's normal length is 13 feet 3 inches but when the tongue is retracted it is 8 feet, 2 inches (98 inches). The MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT will also be...

  • Tongue Jack that Can Fit MicroSport Trailer
    A bolt on jack like the Round Swivel Marine Jack # MJ-1206B is compatible with the 2" wide x 3" high tongue on your Malone MicroSport trailer # MPG460XT and is going to work well for you.

  • Best Trailer for a Native Watercraft Titan Propel 13.5 Kayak
    The best trailer we have for your Native Watercraft Titan Propel 13.5 kayak is the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer part # MPG460XT. This trailer comes with everything you need to hit the road with your 2013 BMW 5 Series assuming you already have a wiring harness, ball mount, and hitch ball. If you need any of those items please let me know and I would be happy to recommend them. The trailer has a 375 lb weight capacity, retractable tongue for easy storage, and a five year warranty. Unfortunately,...

  • Can I Carry 4 Kayaks on Malone MicroSport Trailer?
    I'll start off by saying that it isn't recommended that you add longer crossbars to the Malone MicroSport XT Trailer # MPG460XT because adding too much weight outside of the wheels will effect the stability of the trailer when cornering. With that being said, the crossbars that are included on the trailer will allow you to use your Thule Hull-A-Port XT # TH848 spread out to acommodate the 4 kayaks you're wanting to carry without any issue. However, I believe I have a better solution...

  • Recommended Rack and Roll Trailer for Kayaks and Bikes
    The Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 66" # Y08106 or 78" # Y08107 ride very well at highway speeds on long trips. These 16 inch wheels work very well at any posted highway speed in favorable conditions. Just like any trailer, you want to slow down in conditions with excessive water, snow or ice, and extreme wind. We have had very happy customers with these trailers as you can see in the customer reviews and have not had any issues with the tires. This trailer has been on the market for...

  • Carrying 4 Kayaks and Storage Trunk on Malone MicroSportXT Kayak Trailer
    Along with the MicroSportXT # MPG460XT you could simply add 4 of the Malone J-Pro Kayak Carrier # MPG116MD. You may want to consider a more economical option with the Malone MicroSport Trailer with J-Pro Kayak Carriers # MPG462G2 and add Storage Trunk for Malone MicroSport and XtraLight Trailers # MPG481. The Microsport with J-Pro Carriers comes with the ability to carry 4 kayaks, has a 375 lbs capacity, measures 164" long x 65" wide and has a coupler that attaches to a 2" hitch ball....

  • Sport Trailer With 15 Inch Hitch Ball Height
    I have a great option that is going to work for you, though I checked with Yakima, and to use the Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 the top of the hitch ball must be 22" off the ground. An inch or two in either direction would work, but the seven inch difference you have would make the trailer susceptible to fishtailing due to the uneven tongue height. With that said, there is a similar trailer that is going to work very well for you, the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT, which requires...

  • Canoe Carriers for Use on Malone MicroSportXT Trailer
    The Malone MicroSportXT trailer # MPG460XT does come with 78-inch square crossbars and these are the widest part of the entire trailer. Longer crossbars could pose a hazard so I do not recommend changing. Since the Old Town Saranac 146 has a base weight of 79-lbs and a width of 36-inches your existing bars should work fine to let you use two of the Malone MegaWing Carrier # MPG207. Each MegaWing carrier can handle boats up to 150-lbs. If you prefer a carrier that will allow you to...

  • Distance Between Malone Trailer Crossbar and Bars of 2nd Tier Kit # MPG474
    The distance between the top crossbar of your Malone Trailer # MPG460XT and the bottom of the bars on the 2nd Tier Kit part # MPG474 is 32 inches. I confirmed this with Malone.

  • Selecting Ball Mount for Yakima Trailer with 22" Coupler Height and Ford Focus with 10" Hitch Height
    If you measured a distance of 10 inches from the ground to the top of the inside of the Draw-Tite # 24872 hitch receiver on your 2015 Ford Focus, the Curt Drawbar # C45028 is going to put the ball platform at 15-3/8" above the ground. With the hitch ball actually in place you are looking at a ball height of around 17-3/8", which is still quite below the ideal 22" ball height for the Yakima trailers such as the Rack and Roll # Y08107. With this setup the Yakima trailer is going to be...

  • Dimensions of 78 Malone Crossbars
    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.

  • Which Malone Xtralight Trailer with Kayak Carrier Can Store Up On it's End
    The Malone XtraLight Trailer for a Large Touring, Sit-On-Top, or Fishing Kayak # MPG526G-S that you referenced does have bumpers on the rear of it but it does not have the retractable tongue like you mentioned so instead you'd want the part # MPG460XT which I attached a picture of in the storage position. You'd then also need the kayak carriers part # MPG110MD which come with the other trailer you mentioned.

  • Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Kayak Carrier Compatible With Malone Kayak Trailer
    The Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Kayak Carrier System with Tie-Downs # S65145 is designed to work with round, square, aero/elliptical and most factory crossbars. The hand knobs let you tighten brackets around bars to secure the saddles. These will work fine with the square crossbars on the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT for example. It's important to note the maximum crossbar width is 2-1/2" and the minimum crossbar spread is 24". Included are video resources for more information...
