  • Can Spare Be Carried on Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT
  • I attached a picture that shows where the spare part # MPG465 would mount on the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT that has a retractable tongue. The crossbar spread for this is between 44 and 63 inches normally which might get slightly reduced when carrying the spare, but in most cases there's no need for that much of a spread.

  • 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. In regards to the 7 foot ShockStrap Ratchet Tie-Down Strap with Shock Absorber # 297-7RSBB (Qty 1) or # 297-7RSDB (Qty...

  • Should Yakima Rock and Roll Trailer Upgrade to Heavy Duty Shocks
  • While there isn't a life expectancy, per se, of the shocks on the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 66" # Y08106 and 78" # Y08107, upgrading to the HD shocks is absolutely a good idea if your gear weighs around 200 llbs and certainly anything above that. The Heavy Duty Shocks for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08110 do increase the capacity of your trailer from 250 lbs to 350 lbs so if you need that extra capacity, the HD shocks are what you'll need. That said, if you are just in the...

  • Anti-Theft Lock Recommendations for Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129
  • I can definitely help come up with a way to make the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 as theft resistant as possible but I can't safely recommend you replace the hardware that secures the coupler or hinge to the trailer tongue with hitch locks of any kind. You have to use the included hardware otherwise the warranty of the trailer would be voided and you'd be potentially unsafe to yourself and other motorists. So for the latch of the coupler you could use a trigger latch...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier To Secure Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 14 Tow Deck Of Yakima EasyRider Y08139
  • To secure your Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 14 with 360 Drive Technology to the lower level of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 I recommend the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier # Y04091. The BigCatch is confirmed to fit the lower round bars, and its 150lb weight capacity will be perfect for your kayak. I included videos for both of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Can Different Crossbars Be Used On Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
  • I have another option for you but unfortunately the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 cannot accept any other style of crossbar, as it was only designed to use the round Yakima crossbars. Instead I recommend the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 which uses the Yakima HD Crossbars, has a upper and lower level allowing you to store kayaks or canoes on either level. The cool part about the two levels is that you can store the kayaks or canoes on the lower level and...

  • Locking Options for Malone MicroSport MPG462G2 Trailer for 4 Kayaks
  • The trailer doesn't include locks, which is typical, as trailers don't usually include them. The good news is that there are tons of locking options available, and usually using more than one locking option at a time will deter all but the most determined thief. The Malone MicroSport # MPG462G2 trailer uses a typical 2 inch channel tongue coupler. At a minimum, I'd use a coupler latch lock like part # e98890. I even use these while towing, to prevent the latch from coming open or...

  • Converting Malone MicroSport Trailer Crossbar Conversion to Low Bed Style
  • Since you already have the Malone MicroSport Trailer - Galvanized Steel - 13' Long - 78" Crossbars - 800 lbs # MPG460G already comes with the Malone Crossbar Conversion Kit for Standard Utility Trailer # MPG475. It sounds like you are just looking for the lower crossbars but there isn't a conversion kit option for those bars. You can customize mounts just bolting square aluminum posts at your desired height to the frame and use the Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers - 78" Long -...

  • Differences between the MAL25FR and the MPG46B2
  • The Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer # MAL25FR and Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG461B2 are very similar as they are both built on the same platform. This allows them to both carry the same weight and size kayaks. The # MPG461B2 has a 30" height to the crossbar. The extra height allows for the spare tire to be moved back farther on the trailer to reduce tongue weight. You can also store additional gear below the crossbars such as your paddles and fishing poles. You can use the Fishing...

  • 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...

  • Parts Needed for Converting 8" Wheels On CE Smith Multi Sport Trailer from 8" to 12" Wheel and Tire
  • Yes, you can change the wheels on the CE Smith Multi Sport Boat and Kayak Trailer # CE48810 from 8" to 12". This would give you a trailer like the CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat and Kayak Trailer # CE48870. To complete the conversion you will need 2 of the Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Galvanized Wheel # AM30590 and 2 of the CE Smith Single Axle Trailer Fenders # CE17701G to move to the larger tires.

  • Malone Kayak Trailers Capable Of Carrying 2 Kayaks Each 34" Wide
  • The crossbars on the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with V-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks # MAL43FR are 58" long. While the 2 kayaks you are wanting to carry will each be 34" wide that will place the Kayak approximately 6" past the edge of the crossbar on each side with a couple inches between them in the middle. This would be acceptable as it does not hang over the sides that far and the carriers will still be able to be placed where they can support the kayak while driving. We also have...

  • Comparing Yakima Rack and Roll vs Malone Microsport XT for Carrying Two Kayaks
  • Both the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 and Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT will work for you to carry your two Hobie kayaks, but I recommend the MicroSport XT because it is the better value of the two trailers. The biggest difference between the two trailers is that the Rack and Roll has independent suspension, while the MicroSportXT has a leaf spring suspension. This is going to give the Rack and Roll a bit of a better ride, but that alone doesn't make up for the gap...

  • How To Carry 2 Kayaks And 2-3 Bikes On A Malone Trailer
  • You should be able to fit a single bike in the middle of the 2 kayak cradles on the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer # MAL43FR, but I do not see how you could mount 2 or 3 bikes onto it along with the 2 kayaks. Your best option is to go with Malone # MPG461KB. This trailer is already setup to safely hold 2 kayaks and 2 bikes. If you wanted to add a 3rd bike like you mentioned you might want to do, then you can adjust and slide the kayak/bike cradles down on the crossbars to make room for...

  • Recommended Kayak Trailer for Old Town Sportsman 106 Kayaks
  • I recommend the Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Heavy Kayaks - 7' Bunks - 800 lbs # MPG461B2 for your Old Town Sportsman 106 Kayaks. This trailer will have no problem holding your 10'6" long x 36" wide kayaks. Based on the dimensions you gave me, it looks like you have the powered version that weighs 121 lbs. The # MPG461B2 has a maximum boat weight capacity of 225 lbs per boat so that is also more than enough. It uses 7' bunks to hold your kayaks and also comes with a full size spare....

  • What Bike Rack Can I Install On My Malone MicroSport Trailer To Transport 2 Bikes And 2 Kayaks
  • Yes, that will not be a problem. I did want to let you know there are some limiting factors. Your Malone MicroSport Trailer with J-Style Carriers for 4 Kayaks - 800 lbs, part # MPG462G2, has an adjustable crossbar spread from 44" to 63". I do have an option that would work with your Malone MicroSport Trailer. The rack is the Malone Pilot Trailer Bike Rack - Wheel Mount, part # MPG2100, which can fit on roof rack with a crossbar spread up to 48". It is a wheel mounted roof rack carrier,...

  • Recommended Spare Tire and Carrier For CE Smith Multi Sport Boat and Kayak Trailer
  • For the CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat and Kayak Trailer # CE48870 I recommend the Loadstar 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Galvanized Wheel # AM30670. The galvanized wheel will match what comes on the trailer. The spare tire carrier will depend on how you would prefer to mount the spare. A CE Smith Spare Tire Carrier # CE22007Z-11050-2 will allow you to mount the tire horizontally on top of the trailer. This would work best near the a-frame of the trailer to support the tire....

  • Can You Haul two 12-Foot Fishing Kayaks on the Malone # MAL25FR LowBed MicroSport Trailer?
  • You won't have any problem setting out for adventure with your fishing kayaks on the Malone # MAL25FR LowBed MicroSport Trailer! Your two kayaks weigh 179 pounds total and the LowBed MicroSport has a 800 pound capacity so you can pack on even more. Each of your kayaks are 33.75" which will both fit easily on the 78" wide crossbars. Also, the LowBed MicroSport supports boats up to 20' and since yours are less than 13', this too will be no problem. You will be able to tie down your kayaks...

  • Kayak Saddle Recommendation For CE Smith Boat And Kayak Trailer Carrying 2021 Hobie Outback Kayak
  • Yes, you can use kayak saddles with the CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat and Kayak Trailer # CE48870. I recommend the Thule DockGrip Kayak and SUP Carrier with Tie-Downs # TH895. These saddles will conform to the shape of your 2021 Hobie Outback for a more secure and stable mount. The flexible rubber pads will protect your kayak from damage and hold it place. I would mount the saddles to the bunks as this will allow you to carry the kayak higher. I feel this is important with your...

  • Dimensions of Malone MicroSport Trailer for Storage

The tongue is 90" long so removing it would leave you with 5'9" of trailer sitting up for storage. The wheel size isn't going to make a difference in the trailer performance when comparing the two. Although the # Y08107 has larger wheels, the overall height of the trailer is actually less when compared to the MicroSport. The MicroSport comes with a...

  • The Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer # MPG535 has 86" wide crossbars so you will be able to lay both kayaks side-by-side and they will stick out 1" on either side. The best kayak carrier for your application is the Malone MegaWing Fishing Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG207 because you will be able to easily load up each kayak and it has a weight capacity of 150 lbs so it should be able to handle the size of your kayaks just fine. Obviously you'll need 1 set of this carrier per kayak. We...

  • Spare Tire Carrier Retractable Tongue and Kickstand for Malone MicroSport 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.

  • How Can I Transport My 14 Ft. Laser Sailboat on My 2016 Honda Fit?
  • I have a great solution for that will work with the weight/length of your 130-pound Laser Sailboat on your 2016 Honda Fit. Unfortunately, with the approximate 125 pound maximum weight capacity of your roof, you will not be able to adhere to the roof rack weight limit since it exceeds the roof capacity. With that being said, the safest way to transport your sailboat is by trailer. I recommend the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 66" # Y08106. With the Rack and Roll trailer, you will have...

  • Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer MPG464-LB Ability To Carry Curvy Kayak On Their Side
  • The fenders on the Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer # MPG464-LB are going to sit almost flush with crossbars. Do remember that the height of the Malone FoldAway-J Kayak Carrier # MAL98FR will give you over the top of the crossbars and the fact that the rear crossbar is so close to the fender will reduce the chance of your kayak hitting the fenders. The crossbar spread is also adjustable from 44" to 63" allowing you to be more on the center of the kayak so it will not sit as low on the trailer.

  • What Size Boats Require the Tongue Extension for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
  • I do recommend adding the Tongue Extension Kit for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08109 when carrying boats over 16 feet long with a Yakima Rack N Roll Trailer # Y08107 since it will prevent the boats from contacting the back of your vehicle while turning. It likely isn't going to be completely necessary since it's only about 6 inches of difference and you could likely just slide the boats back 6 inches, but adding the extension ensures there's no contact with the vehicle when making a turn.

Add the height of the board on there which is 2" so that puts you up to 15".

  • Can Kayak Carrier be Installed on Crossmembers of Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
  • You might be able to get your kayak saddles to fit on the crossmembers of the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08106 but I wasn't able to confirm the dimensions with my contact at Yakima. Worst case scenario is that if they don't fit the crossmembers you can just use the round bars that come with the trailer. My contact at Yakima said that the crossmembers weren't designed to have the kayak carriers installed on them so he advised only using the round bars to secure your kayak carrier.

That trailer can only carry a boat up to 14' and as you pointed at it is quite a bit more narrow. I recommend the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer item # MPG535. This trailer can handle boats up to 20' long and has 86" wide crossbars. I have linked a review video below. You will want to add the Bunk Kit for Malone Trailers item...

  • Recommended Trailer for Sea Eagle FishSkiff 16
  • The Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer part # MPG464-LB can accommodate boats up to 20' long and has crossbars 78" wide with a capacity of 800 lbs so it will be a great choice for a Sea Eagle FishSkiff 16. In order to secure the boat you'll need some sort of tie-down or a carrier like the Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier part # MPG112MD.

  • 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.

  • Weight Capacity of J-Style Cradles on Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer
  • The weight capacity of the J-style cradles on the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with J-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks - 400 lbs # MAL93FR is 75 lbs. If your kayaks will exceed the capacity of the cradles then you would need to add the Bunk Kit for Malone Trailers - 1 Kayak # MPG561. The bunk kit has a 500 lb capacity so it would be able to handle any kayak you have as long as you aren't exceeding the capacity of the trailer. You could also use the Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Heavy Kayaks...

  • Is the 13 Malone MicroSport Trailer Available with 58 Long Crossbars
  • It doesn't look like there is an option to get the 13' Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G and the Tongue Mounted Crossbar # MPG4002 with 58" long crossbars instead of the 78" long crossbars unfortunately. On the bright side this means that you'll be able to transport more equipment or another boat if the need arises, or you can simply cut the bars so that they are able to work for your application.

  • Can The Yakima Rack And Roll Trailer Be Stood Up Vertically To Save Space?
  • I took a look at the Yakima Rack and Roll # Y08106 that you're inquiring about, and it turns out you can actually stand this kayak up completely like you're wanting too. You are just going to have to remove the wheels and the tongue, which is fairly easy and you'll be able to stand it upright. With the wheels and the tongue removed, the Yakima is much smaller and will fit in your garage better than the Malone as the the tongue on the Malone can't be removed. I have attached a...

  • Should Weight of Boat on Trailer be Balanced on Either Side of Axle
  • You actually do not want the weight of the load on a trailer to balance perfectly on either side of the axle. You want more weight forward so that the trailer doesn't sway. What you'll want is 10-15 percent of the total trailer weight as tongue weight so you'd want to position the boat and bunks further forward. For a lighter duty trailer setup like yours you could use a bathroom scale to measure the tongue weight when it's sitting level.

  • Kayak Carrier Fit on Crossbars of Yakima Y08106 Rack and Roll Trailer
  • By 'J Bars' I'm assuming you're speaking of a J-style kayak carrier. The Yakima Rack and Roll trailer # Y08106 uses the Yakima 1-1/8 inch diameter round profile crossbars, so as long as your kayak carriers are the clamp mount style versus the channel mount type, they should work fine. I've linked to a product demonstration video featuring the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer.

  • Replacement Bulb for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer

The tail lights are LED so there is no bulb, only diodes which can't be replaced. If you are referring to the marker lights then yes, you can just replace the bulb using the 194 Bulb part # A194B.

  • Choosing 4-Pole Trailer Wiring Harness for 2021 Toyota Sienna
  • For your 2021 Toyota Sienna, I'd highly recommend going with a plug-and-play option, such as the Tekonsha # TK69FR which would work perfectly with no cutting or splicing necessary. As far as a mounting bracket, you really won't need one as the manufacturer recommends leaving the 4 pole connector in the cargo area of the vehicle when it's not being used. This protects it from damage and from the elements. When you need the connector, you can simply run it out the rear hatch (keeping...

  • Will the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer Work With Any Rooftop Tent

The crossbars can be moved back or forward on the side rails to fit your exact rooftop tent needs.

I like this over the Malone because it has lower bunks which means you wouldn't have to back the trailer as far into the water or lift the boat as high.
