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

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. 817954

Great trailer easy to put together. Hardest part is getting the title and bill of sale . Seems to me that would come with trailer. I have been waiting two weeks on my title so I can use it and I’m still waiting. 657032

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 607745

Great trailer for my Hobie PA12 kayak. Pricing for this item is the same everywhere so service makes all the difference - etrailer and their rep Kathy delivered. They provided excellent communications and updates on shipping and a timely receipt of the MCO made it easy to title. Overall a professional experience. Thank you! 553537

The Malone trailer is a high quality product, much nicer than I had anticipated. I use it to transport my 10 foot RIB, which is very light. I needed something small, but substantial to tow smooth. I recently used it to tow the boat 6 hours (350 miles) down to Virginia, and then back a week later, and it towed wonderfully. Also, the staff at etrailer and also at Malone were pretty great to work with. I couldn't recommend this trailer more, and I plan to do all my trailer business with etrailer. 545168

  • How to Carry 3 Kayaks Weighing 190 lbs Total with a 2010 GMC Yukon XL
    Since you're needing to transport 3 kayaks weighing a combined total of 190 lbs you're going to need to use a watersport trailer to accomplish this. All of the roof racks that fit your 2010 GMC Yukon XL have a max weight rating of 165 lbs. Even without adding the weight of the actual kayaks carriers you will be well over this. For your application I recommend using the Malone MicroSport Trailer for 4 Kayaks # MPG462G2 because it comes with everything you need to carry up to 4 kayaks...

  • What is the Shortest Kayak that Will Fit the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG462G2
    The Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG462G2 has a bar spread of approximately 47-1/2 inches on center. There is some adjustability to make the bar spread slightly less, maybe and inch or so, but not much. A kayak would definitely have to be over 4 feet long to sit on the cradles.

  • Availability of Ladder Rack for Carrying Kayaks on 2017 Ford F-150 with TruXport Tonneau Cover
    We do have some other options for you to carry your kayaks with your 2017 Ford F-150 but unfortunately since the TruXport # TX298301 (6-1/2' bed) or # TX297701 (5-1/2' bed) covers the stake pockets of your side rails there are no ladder rack options for you to use. Instead you will need to go with a roof rack system or a trailer like the Malone # MPG462G2. If you don't want to tow them using a trailer please let me know what kind of cab you have and I can help you with a roof rack system.

  • Higher Weight Capacity J Style Kayak Carrier Compatible with Malone MicroSport Trailer
    When it comes to carrying your 88-lbs kayak carrier on the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG462G2, it's not the trailer with that capacity but the Malone J-Pro Kayak Carrier # MPG117MD that has the 75-lbs capacity. You're not going to damage the trailer, but the carriers may not be able to handle the additional weight. With that said, you could swap out the Malone carrier that is included and use the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier - Fixed - Universal Mount # S510 and can carry up to...

  • 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...

  • 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.
