Lightweight Trailer is Perfect for Hauling Kayaks or Canoes

MPG461G2 In Use

This lightweight trailer with J-style cradles let you transport your favorite kayaks or canoes. Lightweight carriers secure your boat on its side, taking up less space and preventing boat-to-boat contact. 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.


MAL98FR folding, j-style cradle

Folding, J-style kayak carriers with soft padding on the base and upright arms prevent scuffs, scratches, or damage to your boat during transport. Folding arms stabilize your boat and prevent movement while traveling on uneven or rough terrain.


Submersible LED Trailer Lights

MPG535 LED taillights

The DOT-approved taillights 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 taillight 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 taillight harness into the main harness.


CE48870 4-way plug

Run the wires of the taillight harness along the sides of the trailer frame and plug the individual wires into the matching wires on the side marker lights and the taillights. 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.

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.


Comments
The trailer is everything I had hoped it would be. I mostly use it for transporting kayaks locally for my boat building business. I have not taken it on a long trip yet but my little car pulls it with ease.

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.

Trailer has performed beautifully for a year now since purchasing. Makes loading and unloading for us being retired very easy

Great kayak trailer! The assembly instructions where precise and easy to follow, only took a few hours to complete. Highly recommend.

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.




by:

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.

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.
The crew at etrailer.com were in constant contact and very supportive throughout the entire process and all the paperwork for registration came within a week .

It has been a busy season. I love having the ability to change the racks easily as we have 3 kayaks, 1 canoe and a sup and are always changing as moods change and different people visit.

Review from a similar MicroSport in Kayak Trailer


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.


Comments
Im still completely satisfied with the Malone trailer. It hauls well on the highway and is easy to maneuver by hand into tight spaces, even with two fishing kayaks loaded. Ive been asked several times at the launch where I got it and Ive sent them directly to etrailer.

Review from a similar MicroSport in Kayak Trailer


I started building the trailer yesterday afternoon and just finished it an hour ago after spending three more hours on it today. It went together very well. Institutions were very clear. I am very happy with it. I am attaching a photo.


Comments
I have used the trailer for over a year now, and I still love it. I’ve had absolutely ZERO problems with it. I store it outside, so it’s always exposed to the weather. But the only wear and tear I see is in the foam pads of the cradles which are not part of the trailer kit and which are probably caused by kayak installation and removals. I can load and unload the kayak in seconds. I am very happy I bought this trailer. Other people are quick to complement it, which allows me to boast that I put it together from a kit! Note: I just saw my initial review and noticed that the spell control software substituted “institutions” for “instructions “. Sorry about that.

Review from a similar MicroSport in Kayak Trailer


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.


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.

Review from a similar MicroSport in Kayak Trailer


I used this for the full 2021 season on at least 20 trips. I use it for quick trips to local lake withe kayak, works perfect, leave boat on trailer, drop on hitch and go. Cust load and unload times in half. The order was complete Fubar, misteaks by all UPS< Malone and etrailer. Extra parts, wrong parts. But I was able to get a real person at etrail and it was all straighened out. Including the title and paper work I needed to register in MA. Assembly takes a bit, but if you pay attention to the directions, it is straight forward. The issues I had was because I didnt pay attention, mounted srpings backward, and did discover till much later, then you have to disseble much and redo to fix. Just go slow and check each step before proceeding.

This trailer makes lifting my kayaks and bikes an easy alternative to putting the kayaks onto the top of my higher SUV. THe latching and tiedown points make safe travel for my adventure trips. Easily handles 2 kayaks very well. Bike tie downs are very easy also, and feel very safe taking these at highway speed on road trips to adventurous destinations. Very pleased with this highly usable product. Not bad to assemble and can easily move it with kayaks and bikes on it. Well balanced. So glad summers here again!

Review from a similar MicroSport in Kayak Trailer


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.

Review from a similar MicroSport in Kayak Trailer


I cannot think where I was ever more impressed with a company than Monroe. They were very attentive and never was there a more easier task than building my trailer. There was nothing missing, and it went together with perfection. Not knowing, but a year before I bought the trailer package, I purchased a kayak 2 wheeled portage cart. Wanting a premier carrier, i bought the best , most stable built cart on the market. It so happens that it was a monroe cart as well. Great group of engineers working on innovation everyday.

I love my Malone MicroSport Trailer! It was shipped carefully in four easy to handle boxes, came complete and undamaged, and the assembly instructions were clear. I assembled it in one afternoon. I keep my two Perception 12' kayaks and two mountain bikes on the racks, so I am ready to hitch and go whenever I feel the urge. I recommend this product highly, without reservation.

Bought the LowBed MicroSport specifically for my Blue Sky Boat Works Angler 360 kayak. Trailer works great! It's lower and makes getting the kayak on and off easier. Had no issues with the trailer assembly. LED lights work great. After one year I'm very happy I bought this trailer.

Great trailer. We can haul both our bikes and kayaks effortlessly. The trailer pulls fantastic and the mounting and dismounting of both bikes and kayaks is easy. Assembly was pretty straight forward from the instructions. I would recommend this trailer if you need a bike and kayak hauling solution.

Only thing I would suggest would be adding a video on your website about backing the trailer up from various angles. I still have problems with that.

  • 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...

  • MicroSport Trailer with Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2-Hobie PA 14 Kayaks
    I really like the J-style kayak carriers like what the Malone Microsport Trailer part # MPG461G2 has. I attached a picture that shows this trailer carrying wider kayaks for you to check out as well. If you'd prefer they lay totally flat the SaddleUp style part # MPG461GU could work but I'd still rather recommend the J-style.

  • 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 trailer...

You will want to measure the inflatable boat to verify that it does not exceed the 78" cross bar width the trailer provides. This is to ensure a proper mounting base for the boat to be secured to.

    We do offer trailers that have kayak racks installed on them to make transporting kayaks easy.

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.

The weight limit of your 2018 Toyota Sienna's roof is, in fact, 150 pounds. Your two kayaks together weigh 135 pounds, and the etrailer J-Style Carrier, part # e98878, weighs 10 pounds for a total of 145 pounds.

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.

The Thule roof rack options for...

  • How to Transport 2 Kayaks on My 2018 Ford Explorer Sport with Low Weight-Capacity Roof?
    I have a solution for you. As far as the 45-pound maximum recommended weight capacity on your 2018 Ford Explorer's panoramic roof, I strongly recommend not exceeding that weight limit per the recommendation from Ford. Even if you determine that can allay the weight you need to the Rhino-Rack T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Assist # RTL002, it is highly unlikely to hold up to 2 kayaks on the crossbar with the space you need with the load stops (see attached video for how much crossbar space a...
