  • 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 to Carry Spare Tire on Apogee Adapt-X 500 Folding Utility Trailer
  • The Apogee Adapt-X 500 folding utility trailer, like # AT74FR does not include a spare tire holder. You can certainly add one, but the problem lies in finding a spot to install a spare tire without interfering with the trailer's ability to fold. The best spot to mount a spare tire carrier would be the front wall of the trailer bed, above the trailer tongue as shown in the provided photo. I'd recommend using the Fulton Hi-Mount tire carrier, part # FSTC1000301. The carrier provides enough...

  • 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...

  • Will Two 30 Inch Wide Kayaks Fit on Lower Deck of Yakima EasyRider Trailer
  • I don't believe your two 30 inch wide kayaks will fit on the bottom deck of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 . I confirmed through my contact at Yakima that the width of the bottom deck is 54 inches inside to inside of the 2 inch diameter tubing that make up the frame. Because the bottom deck has a height of 21 inches, you would not be able to fit your 30 inch wide kayaks on their side, as you mentioned. You could, however, fit one on the bottom and a second or third...

  • Recommended Setup for Towing 2016 Kia Soul Behind a Class A Motorhome
  • The parts you'll need to tow your 2016 Kia Soul behind your Class A motorhome depend on whether you have a manual or automatic transmission. If you have an automatic transmission, you will need to use a tow dolly as models with an automatic transmission cannot be flat towed. I recommend the Demco Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly # DM9713045. This is one of the best tow dollies on the market, with tons of great features like disc brakes and a folding design for easy storage. If you have a manual...

  • 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...

  • 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...

However, according to Demco you never want to back up with the tow dolly while a car is on it and you should not back up with a tow dolly attached at all if possible.

  • 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...

  • 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...

In order to attach the kayaks, the Malone J-Pro2 Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG117MD (one set for each kayak) would be an excellent option. In order to attach the SUP's, I recommend the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier part # INA446 but you could get away with stacking them one on top of the other with the Malone SUP30 Surfboard and SUP Pads part # MPG312.

  • 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...

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...

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....

This would give you a trailer like the CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat and Kayak Trailer # CE48870.

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...

For the upper crossbars I recommend two of the Swagman Contour Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - J-Style - Fixed Arms # S65148 to carry your two 10' Sun Dolphin Kayaks. On the lower 86" long crossbar you can install two of the Malone SeaWing Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Rear Loading - Clamp On # MPG107MD to support your other two kayaks. With...

  • 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.

  • Tow Dolly for 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid
  • According to the owner's manual I looked up online, a 2018 Toyota RAV4, two-wheel drive models of the 2018 Toyota RAV4 (including the hybrid) can be towed with the front wheels on a dolly. However, all-wheel drive models cannot, though I highly recommend looking in your copy of the manual to verify. For a tow dolly, I highly recommend one of the options from Demco: - Demco Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly # DM9713045 - Demco Kar Kaddy X Tow Dolly # DM9713093 These are by far the best option...

  • Availability Of a 4 Bike Trailer That Can Carry 4 Fat Tire Bikes

The bike racks are rated for tires up to 4-1/2" wide and a weight of up to 33lbs per bike.

  • Replacement Spare Wheel and Tire for Demco Kar Kaddy 3 Tow Dolly

The Karrier ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 14" White Wheel part # AM32161 won't work as the wheels need to have a specific offset for the Demco Kar Kaddy 3 and the Karrier option does not come with this offset.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2015 Manual Transmission Mitsubishi Mirage Behind Motorhome
  • A 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage with a manual transmission can indeed be flat towed with the transmission in neutral. For starters, you'll need a base plate, # BX2002 from Blue Ox. For a tow bar, use the Blue Ox Alpha2, part # BX7380. To wire the taillights, I'd recommend a bulb and socket kit like # RM-152-LED-7 which allows the wiring to remain independent of the vehicles taillight wiring system. It's like using a magnetic mounted tow light set that you'll only need to install once, without...

You're not going to damage the trailer, but the carriers may not be able to handle the additional weight.

  • 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...

  • You can test that the hydraulic brakes on your Demco Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly # DM9713045 are working correctly by jacking up one wheel and chocking the other. Have a friend use a piece of wood to engage the surge brake actuator while you try to spin the wheel. It should not be able to move. If you find the brakes are not being applied correctly then you will want to check that the master cylinder has enough brake fluid, and that the pads on the disc brakes are not worn out.

  • Recommended Lock for Spare Tire on Malone MicroSport Kayak Trailer

This will work on a spare tire carrier with as small as a 1/2" wide span, so it will work well with the U-bolt style spare tire mount and the best part is that it keys to your Ford vehicle key so you don't have to worry about fumbling through a bunch of different keys.

  • Replacement Wheel Strap and Steering Wheel Strap for 2021 Elantra Hybrid on Demco Kar Kaddy SS

I recommend the Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 7" Rise, 8" Drop - 9-3/8" Long - 12,000 lbs # C45448. You will also need the # A-90 for a 2" ball.

There is no way to change tires to increase the weight capacity. I recommend finding a way to remove 5 lbs when you need to haul your Sea-doo GTX 230. Making sure the jet ski's fuel tank is empty would be the easiest solution.

  • 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.

  • Can You Flat Tow A 2000 Chevrolet Impala
  • Great question. Per the 2000 Chevrolet Impala owners manual it states that Your vehicle can be towed with wheel lift or car carrier equipment. Don’t have your vehicle towed on the drive wheels, unless you must. If the vehicle must be towed on the drive wheels, do not tow the vehicle more than 500 cumulative miles (800 km) or exceed 50 mph (80 km/h). If these limitations must be exceeded, then the drive wheels have to be supported on a dolly. We don't offer a tow dolly with the lunette...
