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

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. I was pleasantly surprised that the hardware and wiring harness had been upgraded to be more robust. I am waiting for plates and then I will see how it does on the road. 910839

Nice web site easy to navigate. The trailer came in 6 boxes clearly marked. Easy to follow instructions was on its wheel and done in 2 hrs flat. I did cheat some as I have a car lift and air tools to use. I would recommend this to anyone. You can assemble it in your garage at home. 822268

Excellent service. I was updated regarding the delivery date and all parts arrived. Had one small part broken (grease fitting on axel) but follow up service was excellent! Very good instructions and was fairly easy to assemble. It took my wife and I about 1/2 day to complete. Very impressed by the trailer. The construction is rock solid and I am looking forward to using it. 815418

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


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 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

Review from a similar MicroSport in Trailers


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

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

This is a great trailer for the price. I found the packaging and instructions pretty straightforward and easy to follow. Once together it seems quite solid and I really like the LED lights.

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! 837430

I love it. Easy for anyone to assemble. Great performance. This is definitely they way to go when loading and hauling kayaks.

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. 804000

Ask the Experts about this Malone Trailers

  • Is Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Kayaks # MPG461G2 Safe to Carry 2 Hobie Outback Kayaks
    The Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Kayaks # MPG461G2 that you referenced comes with straps that will securely hold kayaks to the carriers. They would definitely not fall out on the highway. Aerodynamics of the trailer are really great too as the tow vehicle basically will punch a hole in the wind as you are driving which this then follows through without creating much wind resistance. The trailer won't sway either. It's very stable actually. There isn't a specific scenario that this...

  • Can a Single Kayak be Carried on Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Kayaks # MPG461G2
    Yes, you could install a single kayak on the Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Kayaks # MPG461G2 if you wanted to. You would not be required to use two kayaks on this trailer.

  • Trailer Recommendation for Transporting Kayaks
    We do offer trailers that have kayak racks installed on them to make transporting kayaks easy. For a trailer with J-style carriers designed for carrying up to 4 kayaks we have the Malone MicroSport Trailer with J-Pro Kayak Carriers # MPG462G2 or if you only need to carry 2 kayaks we have the 2 kayak version part # MPG461G2. These come with straps needed to secure the kayaks as well so you'd only need the trailers and you'd be ready to go.

  • Recommended Parts To Tow Malone Kayak Trailer With 2020 Hyundai Kona Limited
    I recommend Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11529 which is designed for the 2020 Hyundai Kona as long as it is not the all electric model. There is no drilling required for installation so it is a straight forward install. However, the hitch has Class I a 1-1/4" receiver tube so the bike rack must be compatible with Class I hitches and have a 1-1/4" shank. The tongue weight rating of the hitch is 200 lbs so you want to be sure not to exceed that with the Malone trailer. If your...

    Yes, the trailer hitch on your 2016 Ford F-150 would easily tow the Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG461G2. All you'd need is a ball mount with a 2 inch hitch ball like the Curt # C45036.

  • How Tall Are the Malone J-Pro2 Kayak Carriers
    The Malone J-Pro2 Kayak Carrier part # MPG117MD which comes with the Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG461G2 are 16-1/2" tall. If you need more clearance then you may consider swapping out the Malone J-Pro2 Kayak Carrier with the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier part # MPG114MD which are only 5" tall while folded.

For that we have the etrailer.com hitch part # E98856 which will fit and work well. That said we are aware that the roof of Jeep Wranglers really weren't designed to carry much weight.

    I spoke with my contact at EcoHtch and they said that since they only test fit the trailer hitch # 306-X7320 with the OEM spare tire (donut) they wouldn't be able to confirm if it will fit the larger tire that you have. The other trailer hitches, like the etrailer.com # E98843, have more of a width issue but since the EcoHitch has a higher crossmember I believe that the larger diameter of your spare will be an issue.

  • Roof Rack Options for Loading 2 Kayaks onto a 2018 Honda Civic 4dr
    The first thing to look at is the roof capacity of your vehicle. The combined weight of the rack, 2 kayak carriers, and a pair of 64 pound kayaks is a concern. I confirmed the roof capacity is 110 pounds on the 2018 Civic Sedan. A better option and my recommendation is carrying your 2 kayaks on a Malone MicroSport Trailer designed for 2 Kayaks # MPG461G2. If you don't already have a tow package or hitch on your Civic, it requires a tow hitch like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver...

  • Choosing Between A V Rack And A J Rack For A Malone Kayak Trailer
    I recommend the V-Racks or horizontal kayak racks that allow your kayak to lay flat on it's belly. They are easy to load and are lower profile when loaded so less wind resistance is generated. They can also accommodate the heavier, wider fishing kayaks if that applies now or in their future kayak purchases. The Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Heavy Kayaks # MPG461GS is a great example. J-style are popular but can also be more difficult to load and are less wind resistant with a higher...

  • What is the Best Roof Rack for Carrying 2 Kayaks on a 2016 Ram 1500?

This sturdy, aero bar package reduces wind noise and has a sleek look to compliment your Ram 1500. I also recommend using the etrailer.com J-Style Kayak Carriers part # E98878 for the kayaks you plan on carrying. This carrier comes complete with necessary tie downs you'll need for safe transport that won't scratch your paint. While the recommended Yakima...

  • Will the Draw-Tite # 24935 be Good for Towing a Small Trailer with a 2015 Scion FR-S
    The Draw-Tite # 24935 is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Scion FR-S and has a tongue weight rating of 200 lbs and a gross towing weight of 2,000 lbs so the hitch itself would be able to handle a small trailer like the Malone MicroSport # MPG461G2. To complete a towing setup for your Scion FR-S you would need wiring like the Tekonsha T-One # 118629, a ball mount like the Draw-Tite # 3593, and a hitch ball like the 1-7/8" # 19256 or 2" # 19258.

    The Hullavator is a very popular kayak carrier due to its awesome load-assist function.

    We have one solution that would work well but it's a bit pricey so I will warn you on that.

    A roof rack is required first and if you are looking to ease the loading, a lift assist would be important too. The Yukon XL roof weight limit is 150 pounds so that is important in selecting rails, loading 2 kayaks, and their carriers. Yakima makes a solid roof rack option with their 66" roof rack system including parts # Y00410, # Y00148, # Y03536, # Y00243 A side loading kayak carrier such as the Thule Hullavator # TH898 would help you a great deal loading kayaks.
