Malone FoldAway-5 Kayak, SUP, and Canoe Carrier with Tie Downs - J-Style - Folding - Side Loading - MAL38FR

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (25 Customer Reviews)

by:

This rack is super easy to install. It's very convenient that they fold flat when not in use, but the teeth in the locking mechanism can pinch you if you're not extra careful. I wish the clip for the strap was a little more sturdy - the strap can slide out of the clamp and get twisted behind the kayak. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase.

I ordered this Malone MAL38FR multirack kayak carrier to connect to the Rhino-Rack ROC25 roof-rack on my 2019 Ford F150 supercrew.I will be heading out on a long camping trip and will be carrying two kayaks. I’ll post a follow up review post trip. So far after mounting it seems really secure. The kit had one wingnut missing the nut but etrailer is sending me a couple wingnuts to have one as a spare.

Solid, well made and flexible carrying options. This works great for both kayak styles I use them to carry.

Don't know it didn't show up before I went on Vacation so I didn't get to try it out.

The free shipping option can not guarantee a certain delivery date. In the future, I would choose an express shipping option if you are on a time crunch.

  • How to Transport a Canoe or Kayak with a 2021 Airstream Interstate Nineteen Motorhome
    If you're looking to transport a canoe or kayak with your 2021 Airstream Interstate Nineteen Motorhome, then you have two options. The first is to use a roof rack system. Unfortunately, your motorhome does not have a custom fit roof rack, so there are a few pieces needed in order to mount one to your roof. First, you need a track, part # THTP42. These will be what mount to the roof. Then, you need a fit kit. For this setup, I recommend part # THKIT3101 for the Thule Podium Feet. Next...

    We have a similar 2-kayak carrier that can fit the Thule TracRac ladder rack with the Thule Compass # TH890000 and the adapter part # THXADAPT13 but there isn't a way for the Malone # MAL38FR to fit the TracRac.

  • Does Malone FoldAway Kayak Carrier Fit 2015 Honda Pilot With Factory Roof Rack
    The mounting hardware for the Malone FoldAway-5 Kayak, SUP, and Canoe Carrier with Tie Downs # MAL38FR is universal and it will fit your 2015 Honda Pilot's OEM roof rack. The FoldAway comes with hardware that allows it to fit crossbars that are 3-1/2" wide x 1-1/2" tall, which is the vast majority of them, so it will fit other racks as well. I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out as well of the Malone FoldAway-5 Kayak, SUP, and Canoe Carrier with Tie Downs # MAL38FR.

  • Mounting Bolts for the Malone FoldAway 5
    The Malone FoldAway 5, part # MAL38FR, comes with two sets of mounting bolts. The longer of the two measures about 3". However, if this is not long enough, then you will need to pick up longer ones at your local hardware store as we do not have them here.

    Yes the Malone Foldaway 5 Kayak carrier part # MAL38FR would fit the Malone Airflow Aero crossbars for a 2013 Nissan Rogue # MPG215. This would be a great choice to carry a 2-piece modular kayak like what you have.

  • FoldAway-5™ Multi-Rack Folding 1 or 2 Kayak, SUP, Canoe Carrier
    I have a great solution for the measurement problem. Unfortunately, both eTrailer and Malone do not currently have the Malone FoldAway-5 Kayak, SUP, and Canoe Carrier with Tie Downs - J-Style - Folding - Side Loading # MAL38FR. Although, we do have the measurement for an alternate carrier. I confirmed with my contact at Yakima that the JayLow Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # Y04073, there is about 4-1/2 inches of height when folded.

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carriers for Two Kayaks on 2015 Toyota Rav4
    First, we need to get some crossbars on your roof! Since you have raised side rails, you can attach a Yakima roof rack system with just two parts: # Y00425 and # Y00147. Those are 50" JetStream Cross Bars # Y00425 and TimberLine Towers # Y00147 that mount to your rails. For the kayak carriers, we have many options. If you're looking for J-style carriers, we have the etrailer J-style Kayak Carrier # e98878. These are nice since they can fold down when not in use. You can put two up on...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2 Kayaks on 2016 Ram 2500 Mega Cab
    We do have exactly what you need to add a roof rack and kayak carrier so you can carry a pair of kayaks on your 2016 Ram 2500 Mega Cab. Since you are planning on carrying two kayaks, I recommend going with just the rack and a carrier as opposed to a hitch mount, as the hitch-mount extender are really for just one kayak due to their width. Let's start with the roof rack and the best option for a rack is from Thule because they are the quietest and highest-quality crossbars, and because...

All the information from Heather in the question you asked from is still relevant for your vehicle. Like using the cable lock part # e98891 and the SeaSucker Cable Anchor part # 298-BA0020 to keep everything secured. One other thing I would say differently is my recommendation of a kayak carrier.

  • Kayak Carrier Recommended for Old Town Heron Kayaks on Yakima Y08107 Rack and Roll Trailer
    For a fairly economical way to transport your three kayaks on the # Y08107 Rack and Roll trailer, I'd recommend going with the Malone FoldAway # MAL38FR for two kayaks and the # MAL98FR for the third. I looked up your kayaks, and found that Old Town lists the weight of the solo as being about 40 lbs with a length of 9-1/2 feet and the tandems as being 60 lbs each with a length of 13-1/2 feet. The kayaks sizes and weights would be compatible with both the Rack and Roll trailer and the...

  • Can You Use Roof Rack Crossbars Wider Than The Roof Of A 2017 Honda CR-V
    The reason the the 60" Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00426 are showing as not confirmed to fit your 2017 Honda CR-V is due to the fact that it will be wider than the roof of your vehicle. As long as the 60" bars are narrower than the widest point of your CR-V which is usually the mirrors, you will be able to use the # Y00426. If the crossbars are too wide it can cause a safety issue and could even be illegal in some areas, and you would want to stick with the 50" # Y00425. To do this...

  • How to Carry Two 75-LB Kayaks on a Honda Pilot with Factory Raised Rails
    It looks like you aren't able to support your kayaks with the factory rails on a 2013 Honda Pilot. I suggest removing those rails and replacing them with better aftermarket ones we offer here. I recommend the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars, part # TH711400. They have a weight capacity of 165 pounds (enough for your two kayaks and a carrier). To mount these crossbars to the raised rails, you will need the Evo Raised Rail Feet for Thule Crossbars, part # TH710401. I've linked to a video...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for 2017 Subaru Legacy
    When it comes to trying to find the best fit for kayaks with different shaped hulls, I prefer jointed saddle style carriers like the Rhino-Rack Nautic 581 # RR581. These are channel mounted carriers similar to the Yakima SweetRoll # Y04074 you were asking from. I recommend the Nautic 581 instead though because they have t-track mounts that will work well with your Rhino Rack crossbars on your 2017 Subaru Legacy. Those separated saddles are nice because they can adjust to support your...

  • Using the Rhino-Rack Kayak Carrier with Yakima HD Crossbars
    The Rhino-Rack Crossbar Adapter, part # KC-FK8, is designed to fit the 2 Kayak Carrier, part # S512-S512X, into bars with a C-channel (or T-track). The Yakima HD Crossbars, part # Y01157, do have a T-track, so this adapter should work for you. I called Rhino-Rack, and they also stated that it should work. However, since this is not 100% confirmed, if you would rather go with a kayak carrier that is already designed to work with square bars like yours, we have that here. It's the Malone...

  • Best Kayak Trailer and Carriers for Two or Four Kayaks
    For a kayak trailer, I'm a fan of Malone's trailers. I personally did a video on their Malone MegaSport Trailer with Saddle Style Carriers # MPG550-U since I'm a big fan of the saddle style carriers as well as their cargo boxes designed for fishing trips. Since it's such a heavy-duty kayak trailer (I jumped on the fenders to test them), it's a smooth ride and was also surprisingly easy to maneuver by hand. If you want an extra strong and sturdy kayak trailer, the MegaSport is the way to...

  • Can I Put 60 Crossbars and 2 Thule Hullavators on My 2020 Toyota 4Runner
    Typically extending more than 4"-8" outside of your mounting towers will put the crossbars past the side view mirrors, which extends the width of the vehicle and could create unsafe conditions; this is the main reason that this is not recommended. However, it also could potentially put too much weight outside of the mounting towers and put too much weight on the unsupported bars-this is a little less likely, but we still don't generally recommend it. The Hullavator also cannot be used with...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2017 Honda Civic SI Coupe
    Sounds like what you need is a roof rack system and a kayak carrier for your 2017 Honda Civic SI Coupe. For the roof rack, my best recommendation for your 2017 Honda Civic SI Coupe is an Inno Roof Rack System with parts # INXB108-2, # INXS200, and # INK683. I picked this kit since it's low-profile and I like the Inno Flush Feet # INXS200 towers that limit overhang. Some like longer bars for more bar space which we have as well.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Two Kayak Carrier for 2021 Jeep Cherokee

This has 49" crossbars that are going to give you a nice low-profile look as well as less wind drag and noise due to their aero shape. You can also get them in silver # RRVA126S-2 if you want to match your rails. For a kayak carrier that can carry two kayaks, I have two options for you. The first is the Malone FoldAway-5 # MAL38FR.

You can then use a T-Track accessory or a wrap accessory to handle your bikes and canoe. For the two bikes you can use the SportRack Upshift # SR4883 and for your canoe you can use the Malone FoldAway # MAL38FR because it will carry your canoe somewhat upright.
