Multipurpose Trailer Hauls Different Types of Boats and Cargo

MPG535 In Use

This heavy-duty, low-profile 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). Because of the trailer's low-profile design, the crossbars sit only 22" off the ground. The lower crossbars provide a safe height to load heavy kayaks and help avoid unnecessary overhead lifting.

With a 7-1/2' 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.

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.

No issues with the trailer and I put it together without help (not bad for a 5’0 woman). Now if I could just learn to back it into the launch lol.

- MPG464-LB

This is the best purcchase I could have made.I'm only sorry I didn't do it sooner. I was worried that the crossbars would be to wide but they are not. I'm in my 60s and only 5ft tall so getting a kayak on the roof of my car just isn't happening(all the dents and sractches). If you have any thoughts about bying this just do it.

- MPG464-LB

Great trailer for the price I paid and easy to assembly.

  • How Does Malone Installation Hardware for Hobie Style Carriers Work
    You can use your Hobie carriers on your Malone MicroSport LowBed Trailer # MPG464-LB with the Malone Installation Hardware for Hobie Style Carriers # MPG5576-6. I have added a cut out of the instructions and linked them below but you just need to fasten the brackets to the Hobie cradles and then attach them to the crossbars with the plates so it's pretty simple.

  • Spare Tire Carrier Retractable Tongue and Kickstand for Malone MicroSport Trailer
    The correct spare wheel/tire and carrier for the Malone MicroSport trailer part # MPG464-LB is the part # MPG465 which is designed to attach to the tongue of the trailer. The retactable tongue kit that fits this trailer is the # MPG494 which decreases the length of the trailer by 61 inches. And then for the "kickstand" we also have the Trailer Tongue Kickstand for Malone Trailers # MPG467 which is basically just a swivel trailer jack. All of these can be installed at the same time as well.

  • Dimensions and Crossbar Spread for Malone MicroSport LowBed Trailer
    The crossbars on the Malone MicroSport LowBed Trailer # MPG464-LB measure 1-1/4" squared and then the crossbar spread ranges from 44" - 63". I'm not quite sure what you mean by cross section, but these are the dimensions of the 78" square crossbars for the trailer. If you were asking about something else please let me know and I can see what other specs I can get you.

  • Will Thule or Yakima Accessories Fit on the Malone MicroSport LowBed Trailer
    While you can fit some Thule and Yakima accessories, like the Thule FastRide # TH95JV or Yakima ForkLift # Y02098, around the crossbars of the Malone MicroSport LowBed Trailer # MPG464-LB, the closest you will be able to get those crossbars is 44" which is well over the max crossbar spread length of the majority of accessories. An alternative option that would allow you to fit practically any accessory is the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107. This has 78" long crossbars which are...

  • How Wide Is The Malone MicroSport LowBed Trailer With 78 Inch Crossbars
    The Malone MicroSport LowBed Trailer # MPG464-LB has a crossbar spread of 44"-63" which is the distance in-between the two crossbars. You can adjust this by moving the front crossbar forward or backward to accommodate the load you plan on putting on the crossbars. You are correct that the crossbars are the widest part of the trailer, so they dictate the width. The Malone MicroSport Lowbed Trailer # MPG464-LB is 13'3" long by 78" wide and 22" tall with a crossbar weight capacity of...

  • Will Two 35 Inch Wide Kayaks Fit Side By Side on Malone LowBed MicroSport With MegaWing Carriers
    The crossbars of the # MPG464-LB Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer measure 78". This gives you plenty of space to fit your two 35" kayaks next to each other with some room between them and room to spare on the outside as well. The # MPG207 Malone MegaWing Fishing Kayak Carrier is 27-1/2" wide so that will not present an issue either. I have attached a video review of the trailer and carrier for your reference.

  • Keel Roller Assembly that Fits Malone MicroSport LowBed Trailer # MPG464-LB
    Since the Malone MicroSport LowBed Trailer # MPG464-LB has a 2 inch wide trailer tongue the correct keel roller is the part # CE32005G which is for 2 inch wide frames. The # CE32003G would be too wide as it's for 3 inch wide frames.

  • Recommended Trailer to Carry 2 Kayaks and 2 Bikes
    I have a solution for you, but the crossbar spread on the Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer - 78" # MPG464-LB is going to be too wide to allow you to carry bikes. Most roof rack mounted bike carriers need a crossbar spread no more than 38" apart, and the MicroSport LowBed trailers have a minimum spacing of 44". However, the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 78" # Y08107 can be oriented with a minimum crossbar spread of 36", which is compatible with most roof rack style bike carriers. This...

As you mentioned, the Storage Trunk is compatible with other models, such as the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G. I have added links to video reviews for you to check out as well.

  • Is White Ground Wire Connection Necessary for Small Canoe Trailer
    Yes, it is necessary to have the ground connection on your trailer as it can cause your lights to not work properly. Since the white wire was cut off right next to the 4-Way connector you'll have to replace the whole connector but we have plenty of options for you to choose from. I highly recommend the Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull Harness # HM48114 because it is designed specifically to help make disconnecting your trailer wiring much easier and the wiring is labeled for easy installation.

  • Best Way to Carry 9ft. Long Whitewater Kayaks Utilizing the Hitch on an RV
    I want to lead this answer by saying, most racks aren't rated for use on RVs/Motorhomes because of the additional stress that is put on them with the extra movement that occurs on the backs of these vehicles- it's much different when attached to a passenger vehicle. There are kayak carriers that mount on your hitch, but they will only work with pickup trucks since they're typically only meant to hold one end of the kayak; the Rhino-Rack T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Assist and Support...

  • Recommended Trailer And Carrier For 100lb 17.5 Foot Metal Canoe
    The Malone LowMax XtraLight Trailer - 78" Crossbars - Detachable Tongue - 600 lbs # MAL83FR has a max boat length capacity of 17 feet. Since your canoe is 17.5 feet it is close and may work, but it is technically over 17 feet and I recommend just going with the Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer - 78" Crossbars - 800 lbs # MPG464-LB. This will not only give you the 20 foot boat capacity but also increase the weight capacity by 200lbs, giving you an 800lb weight capacity. For a spare tire...

  • Can I Load an 8-foot Long Dinghy onto the Malone MicroSport Trailer
    You could use something like the Malone MicroSport LowBed Trailer - 78" Crossbars - 800 lbs # MPG464-LB as long as the boat weighs under 800-lbs. I would recommend adding the Bunk Kit for Malone MegaSport Trailer to help keep the boat up off the crossbars and easily secure the boat with the load straps that are included with the bunk kit. You could also use the CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat and Kayak Trailer w/ Bunks - 12" Wheels - 14' Boat - 800 lbs # CE48870, which even has a winch...

  • How to Carry 2 100 lb Kayaks on 2017 Toyota RAV4
    None of the roof rack options we offer for the 2017 RAV4 offer a capacity greater than 165 lbs, so although I don't have a solution for carrying the kayaks on the roof of your vehicle, we do have a solution. Your best bet would be a small kayak trailer like the Malone MicroSport, part # MPG464-LB. The trailer's crossbars are rated up to 500 lbs, so they'll handle your kayaks without breaking a sweat. For a properly rated carrier (if you don't already have them), I'd recommend the etrailer...

  • Can 12" Tire Be Fitted To the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer
    The Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer part # MAL53FR comes with 8" wheels. The fenders are fixed on the frame so there would not be an option to easily upgrade tire size. That said, there is a version of this trailer which comes with larger tires, the Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer part # MPG464-LB which comes standard with 12" tires.

  • Best Kayak Carrier and Roof Rack for 08 Ford Escape to use with 100lb Fishing Kayak?
    I was able to find out from my research that the factory roof rack on the 2008 Ford Escape has a 100-lb capacity, so carrying a kayak that weighs that much on your roof is not going to be the safest option you have. If you are going to try to stick with a roof mount option then a good crossbar system that works with your 2008 Ford Escape is the Malone AirFlow 2 # MPG215 which has the towers needed to mount your crossbars to the factory side rails as well as the Aero style crossbars that...
