Heavy-Duty, 2-Tier Trailer Hauls Kayaks or Canoes and Cargo

MPG550-TM In Use

This heavy-duty, 2-tier trailer with saddle-style carriers and storage containers let you bring your favorite kayaks, canoes, and other gear 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.


MPG461gu saddle-style cradle

Durable saddle-style kayak carriers are flexible and padded to prevent scuffs, scratches, or damage to your boat during transport. The high-grip, adjustable saddles stabilize your boat and prevent movement while traveling on uneven or rough terrain. Fabric covers on the rear saddles allow easy boat loading from the back of your trailer.

mal64zr 2nd tier load bars

This lightweight, top-tier load bar system provides second level storage and additional space for accessories like a bike rack, fishing rod storage tube, or a lighter boat. The rear load bar adjusts to accomodate different size cargo and prevent uneven loads.


mpg537 dry storage container

This versatile storage container conveniently stows your important cargo and slides out between the crossbars for easy access to your gear. It has a removable lid with water-tight gasket to ensure your gear stays dry. A metal hinge and hasp is used to secure the lid to the container and can be used with a padlock (sold separately) to deter theft.


mpg547 wire basket

This lightweight wire storage basket is great for holding all your wet or dirty gear after a day on the water. The open mesh design allows your gear to dry while being stored. With a black powder coated finish, this container is durable and weather-resistant.


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.


MPG535 manual crank jack with dwiveling wheel

An easy-to-use manual crank jack allows you to raise or lower the coupler height for quick trailer adjustment. The jack comes with a swiveling wheel that rotates 360 degrees for full trailer control. A built-in handle twists and locks into place, folding the jack in a horizontal position against the tongue when not in use.

Review from a similar MegaSport in Trailers


I was tried of lifting kayaks onto our Toyota Highlander and the ladder rack on our Ford F-250 4X4 truck. While I am in good shape, after 66 years of use, I decided that a kayak trailer would be a better option than sore shoulders. A trailer would also allow us to haul additional kayaks for outings with friends and family. After weighing all the scenarios, I settled on the Malone Megasport. It arrived amazingly fast and after about 5 hours the trailer materialized our of the 7 boxes. The assembly was straightforward and the great videos on the etrailer website helped considerably. After assembly, registering the trailer with our DMV was painless. The trailer tows easily, our kayaks are secure and the storage trunk (additional purchase) is massive and stores our pfds and associated gear. I installed 2 Malone Downloader J-hook kayak racks and a Malone Seawing rack. If I need to haul a fourth kayak, I will install another Downloader. The Megasport has been a great investment! The customer service and follow up was also great! Thank you, Kaylyn R.! The only suggestion I have is that the folks at Malone should include rubber grommets to protect the wiring as it threads through the frame. I bought and installed grommets myself but I think they should have been supplied by the manufacturer.


Comments
We still love our Malone Megasport trailer. We can haul our 4 Eddyline kayaks without having to stand on a step stool to lift them on to our car or truck. I did order the Fulton bolt on fold away hinge kitalso from etrailer and installed it so the trailer more easily fits into our garage. The trailer was a great investment for us!

Review from a similar MegaSport in Trailers


The MALONE trailer is fantastic. Far more robust than I was expecting. Having just retired with more time to paddle, I was tired of taking the boats on and off the roof all the time, especially my 18' rowing shell with seat inside. My wife was too short to load anything except on top of our smallest car. We live on an island and next year I may start a small kayak touring venture. The trailer will be perfect. My only comment to help you improve would be better instructions for the add-on rack kit. The trailer instructions were perfect.

Review from a similar MegaSport in Trailers


Received the kayak trailer in six boxes. Removed all the parts from the boxes and placed them on a large tarp in the order required by the instructions. I took my time putting the kayak trailer together since I am 80 years old and did not want to miss a step. I am very pleased with the results and I can load and unload my two kayaks easily

The trailer works really well, light enough to maneuver by hand. It works with kayaks or canoes. I would pass on the cargo containers, everything in the metal one gets dirty and the plastic one is not dust proof or even rain proof.

Among the many sources for purchasing the trailer for my boat rental business, River house Boats in Rowlesburg, WV etrailer was straight forward about delivery and came through even before the projected delivery date. They have my highest rating! Tim Weaver, owner.

  • E-Bike Racks for Malone MegaSport 2 Tier Trailer MPG550-TU
    There are several great options to transport both e-bikes and kayaks. The Malone MegaSport 2 Tier Trailer # MPG550-TU is a great option to transport your kayaks with space for hauling additional cargo, but it doesn't have any room to haul e-bikes at the same time. To do this, I recommend the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 which allows you to carry both the kayaks on the bottom racks and the e-bikes up top. The heavy-duty, adjustable crossbars along the top let you attach...

  • Can The Malone 2 Tier MegaSport Trailer Carry 2 Additional Kayaks On The Top Bar?
    The Malone 2 Tier MegaSport Trailer with Saddles for 2 Kayaks # MPG550-TU is designed to transport 2 kayaks on the bottom bar, but you can also mount more accessories on the top bar. You can use add-on Malone Saddle Up Pro Kayak Carrier # MPG110MD for an extra kayak to be mounted. I don't see any reason why you couldn't mount 2 kayaks on the top section being that the top bar is 58" wide and the add-on Malone Saddles only require a minimum of 24" crossbar spread. Just keep in mind that...

  • Can Malone Megasport 2 Tier Trailer Carry 3 Kayaks
    The Malone MegaSport 2 Tier Trailer with SaddleUp Pro Kayak Cradles # MPG550-TU that you referenced can carry 3 fishing kayaks like you have. The third one would most likely have to install on the upper bars with an additional kayak carrier part # MPG110MD.

  • Will Malone Profile18B Rooftop Cargo Box Fit Malone MegaSport Trailer
    Yes the Malone Profile18B Rooftop Cargo Box # MPG911 that you referenced will fit the top tier of all of the Malone MegaSport 2 tier trailers like the part # MPG550-TU. This is an easy to use and secure roof cargo box that costs less than similar options so its a great option. I attached a review video for more info on this for you to check out as well.
