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.

Compact, Vertical Storage

MPG460XT retractable tongue

This MicroSportXT trailer has a retractable tongue and rubber bumpers, allowing you to store the trailer vertically.

mpg460xt pin removed

To retract the tongue, remove the metal pin and clip holding the tongue in place and disconnect the wiring harness that runs through the tongue.

mpg460xt tongue pinned

Then, push the tongue towards the back of the trailer until it is aligned with the bracket mounted on the rear cross member. Finally, slide the tongue on the bracket and place the pin and clip in the aligned holes to secure the tongue in place.

mpg460xt rubber bumper

With a smaller footprint, you can stand the trailer upright, using the rubber bumpers attached to the rear cross member to support the trailer's weight.

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.

Malone MicroSportXT Trailer - 78" Crossbars - Retractable Tongue - 800 lbs - MPG460XT

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (17 Customer Reviews)

Heavy-duty trailer is perfect for hauling canoes, kayaks, and SUPs. 78" crossbars offer plenty of space to carry cargo boxes and other accessories. Retractable tongue offers compact storage. Aluminum diamond tread fenders create a stylish look.

- MPG460XT

Painted blue, and a pvc coated wire basket for gear storage with a bungee net cover. Stores my 16 ft. Xcat with sailing and rowing package plus my Blackfin SUP on top.

- MPG460XT

So far this seems like a great little trailer. The build instructions were very clear & hardware bags were sorted by each build step. I enjoyed putting the trailer together. I was fortunate to have air ratchets. These saved time running the nuts onto the bolts then finished by hand tightening. As other posts indicate, the fenders are a bit tough to mount. Stay patient and with a little “manly” effort they will go on. A special thanks to Sarah in customer service that assisted with modification to my bill of sale as I was standing in the Tag & Title Company. etrailer is outstanding!

- MPG460XT

Very happy with trailer. Fairly easy to assemble but directions could be better. Took about 4 hours to build basic trailer by myself. Additional 1.5 hrs. to add carriers, spare tire, kick stand, etc.

- MPG460XT

I waited a long time after I placed my order to get my trailer. But finally got it after almost two months. The trailer looks great got it in 6 boxes assembled it. Was some issues with the certificate of Origin was not sent to me. But finally got it today. So everything is on the go. I buy a lot from etrailer never got any issues. Great place to buy from. They have to improve their phone lines sometimes you have to wait almost one hour for someone to answer your concerns. That is the only thing that sucks with them.

Thank you for your review. This item is always shipped via freight so always consider the time. The paperwork is sent separate after the trailer is shipped. It usually arrives within 10-14 business days and ships via Priority Mail.

Love our kayak trailer! So easy to maneuver around and with the retractable tongue it is perfect for storing in our garage. Would definitely buy again from this company! Great customer service and products!

Awesome trailer! Still love it - can’t wait to get it out for the season but love that it didn’t take up much room in the garage over the winter months! Highly recommend.

Overall this has been a great acquisition. I live in a townhouse in a largely retirement community where restrictive covenant are...well restrictive. I have a modest sized garage and I would be obliged to store my Hobie PA14 and trailer in the garage or take it off site. The retractable tongue has made storing the trailer a breeze. I have had no problems with the trailer structurally whatsoever. I had an issue initially with the wheels being badly out of balance but chalk that off to my inexperience. I changed out the tires to another set that was rated for max speeds of 80 mph. My son in law and I put both his kayak and my Hobie on the trailer and we take off to the eastern NC coast or HHI and I've never had a problem. Added a DrawTite hitch silencer which really quieted things down when pulling in my Outback. Malone mounting blocks really work well for my Hobie water wings. Also added a recent spare mounting bracket which also has worked well. Absolutely no problems with the electric circuits and lights in salt water. Overall great trailer. Couldn't be happier. Malone makes the best kayak trailers out there. etrailer has been great too with ordering, service , and overall reliability.

- MPG460XT

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.

- MPG460XT

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.

Great lightweight trailer. Tracks well and I’ve taken it all through many trips and get questions and compliments at all the boat ramps.

This product has been a God send for us. Using the kayaks has never been easier especially for the wife. She can handle her Kayack by herself with no help from me. The assembly was not bad at all especially for me as I am not mechnically imclined. Love this product.

- MPG460XT

Though I haven’t used the trailer yet It went together very easy and looks to be of top quality I will submit a picture with our kayaks on it very soon

The Malone Microsport XT has proven to be a great addition to my kayak experience. I have a Jackson Big Tuna, which is a great fishing platform, but at almost 15 feet and 100 pounds it was beginning to get more difficult to top load. The Microsport XT fit the bill.

Very nice, haven’t used it yet but I’m sure it will exceed my expectations!

Ask the Experts about this Malone Trailers

  • 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 that...

  • 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 Lock for Spare Tire on Malone MicroSport Kayak Trailer
    In order to secure your Spare Tire for Malone MicroSport Trailer - 12" Galvanized - Locking Attachment # MPG465 I recommend using the BOLT Trailer Coupler Lock - 1/2" to 3-3/8" Span - Codes to Ford Key # BL7025285. This will work on a spare tire carrier with as small as a 1/2" wide span, so it will work well with the U-bolt style spare tire mount and the best part is that it keys to your Ford vehicle key so you don't have to worry about fumbling through a bunch of different keys.

    While I wasn't able to find the dimensions of what the Marco saddles fit, I can tell you that Thule square crossbars are a different size than the crossbars on the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT. The MicroSportXT has crossbars that measure 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" square, while the Thule square bars (which are really rectangles) measure 1-1/4" wide x 7/8" tall. So if your Marco saddles are able to accommodate the slightly larger height, they will work on the square crossbars of the Malone...

  • Can you Store Kayaks on the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460 with the Tongue Retracted?
    Yes, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to store the kayaks on the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT with the tongue retracted. However, you might need to remove the kayaks before retracting the tongue to be able to disconnect the wiring harness and access the tongue bracket on the back end to keep it secure. Also, you won't be able to store the trailer vertically with the kayaks attached. Check out the video linked below for more details on this product.

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.

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).

Depending on how you secure you kayaks you will have no problem. Using carriers like the Swagman Coronado Rooftop Kayak Carrier System with Tie-Downs part # S65149 which sit under the hull rather than out side of it will ensure you have the space you need.

    Both the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 and Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT will work for you to carry your two Hobie kayaks, but I recommend the MicroSport XT because it is the better value of the two trailers.

Each MegaWing carrier can handle boats up to 150-lbs. If you prefer a carrier that will allow you to...
