Lightweight Trailer is Perfect for Hauling Kayaks or Canoes

MPG461GS In Use

This lightweight trailer with V-style cradles let you bring your favorite kayaks or canoes on your outdoor adventure. 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.


MPG461GS v-style cradle

Durable V-style kayak carriers with rubber padding prevent scuffs, scratches, or damage to your boat during transport. The saddles stabilize your boat and prevent movement while traveling on uneven or rough terrain.


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.

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

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.


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.

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.

Review from a similar MicroSport in Trailers


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.

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 .

Review from a similar MicroSport in Trailers


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 it. Easy for anyone to assemble. Great performance. This is definitely they way to go when loading and hauling kayaks. Tracks true behind my Cherokee, so easy to strap down the kayaks with the j hooks. Light system works great. In my opinion there are really no negatives. I will use etrailer in the future. Expert help. Very professional company. Doesn’t break the bank.

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!

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.

Well it finally came in over two months after ordering due to MFG back orders I have finally assembled the trailer and all my friends think it’s great. I have been roof top kayaking for many years but the constant loading unloading and reloading and unloading back home was starting to make me loose my joy of kayaking. Now with this trailer I hope to keep kayaking into my 90’s. And no back pain.

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.

After receiving the 7 boxes, it took me about 5 hours to put it together. All parts and hardware were there and the trailer went together perfectly. I highly recommend this trailer. My Malibu and Caper Ocean Kayaks fit perfectly and should make transporting easier.

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.

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!

My wife and I are thrilled with this trailer. It has met and even exceeded my expectations. The components fit together perfectly. Assembly was easy. This trailer with the J racks makes loading and unloading our Ocean kayaks a breeze. I should have bought this thing years ago. etrailer.com was a pleasure to deal with.

    The Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG461GS doesn't have a speed limitation. However the 12 inch tires should not be run above 65 miles per hour. You could add different tires with a higher speed rating such as # TT48012C which are rated for 81 miles per hour and 990 pounds at 90 psi. But the tires would have to be purchased separately because we can't swap out the ones that come with it for different tires.

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.

My recommendation is to use the Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Extra Heavy Boats - 13' Long - 800 lbs # MPG461B2 or the Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Heavy Kayaks - 13' Long - 800 lbs # MPG461GS.

You would also need at least 188 lbs roof weight capacity for everything which is pretty hefty. We have other kayak carriers with load assist to some extent, but they all require a little more over the head lifting compared to the Thule Hullavator.
