Expert Answers about Malone

  • What is a Waterproof Storage Solution for a Roof Cargo Basket?
  • It is absolutely fine to leave a roof cargo basket on when it is not in use. This adds a rugged style to the vehicle and means that you will not need to find space inside your home or garage to store the rack between trips. A recommended setup for a cargo basket on a 2016 Jeep Renegade is the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack, part # MPG216 combined with the Curt Roof Mounted Basket, part # C18115. This provides additional cargo space and is expandable with the Cargo Basket Extender, part #...

  • What is the Best Rack to Transport 4 Womens Bikes on a 2015 Volkswagen Touareg?
  • The Malone Pilot 4 Bike Rack, part # MPG-2112-2115, is an extremely versatile platform mount that will work well with the women's bikes. The adjustable frame lock has 90 degrees of range, being able to adapt to a number of frame types and positions. Frame locks on most platforms actually attach to the front wheel or front of the frame, avoiding the need for an adapter bar. I recommend putting the frame lock against the downshaft of the bike to avoid damaging the frame. I also recommend...

  • Will Malone Profile18S Cargo Box Fit a 2014 Chrysler Town and Country with Factory Roof Rack
  • The Malone Profile18S cargo box # MPG910 will fit the factory roof rack on your 2014 Chrysler Town and Country if the center to center distance front the front bar to the rear bar is 25 to 40 inches. If you have a bar spread that is outside of those dimensions let me know what the spread is on your van and I can make other recommendations.

  • Malone AirFlow Roof Rack for a 2017 Toyota RAV4 with Factory Side Rails
  • The Malone AirFlow roof rack # MPG215 does indeed fit the 2017 Toyota RAV4 with factory side rails. The 2-7/16 inch measurement you have is actually 1/16 inch less than 2-1/2 inches that the roof rack fits.

  • Malone Roof Rack and Rhino-Rack Cargo Basket Fits on 2014 Jeep Patriot
  • The Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG215 is a confirmed fit on the 2014 Jeep Patriot that has raised roof side rails that run front-to-back. This rack's aero-style bars will be quieter than most other roof rack bar shapes. The Rhino Rack Roof Cargo Basket # RMCB is an excellent choice for use on this rack. This carrier will fit the aero bars perfectly. With rooftop cargo carriers we like to suggest certain accessory items that can make using these a lot easier. First, please consider...

  • Malone Cargo 23 Roof Cargo Carrier for a 2016 Chrysler Town and Country
  • To my knowledge people tend to be pretty happy with the Malone Cargo 23, part # MPG903. Malone is fairly comparable to Yakima and Thule, though they tend to be a little more feature-heavy than Malone's boxes. Because each roof box and vehicle is different, I can't say for certain if the box will fit, but there are a few measurements you can take of your vehicle to help predict the fit. One specific part that the Malone Cargo 23 will not fit is round crossbars, as the clamps...

  • Recommended Crossbars And Kayak Carrier For 4 Kayaks On 2009 Nissan Murano
  • For your 2009 Nissan Murano with factory roof rack, you can add the Malone AirFlow2 Universal Roof Rack for Raised Side Rails - Aero Crossbars - 50" Long # MPG215 to your system to give you aftermarket crossbars rated for up to 165 lbs. To carry up to 4 kayaks, I recommend the Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830. This comes with straps for 2 kayaks, but you will want additional tie-downs for 4 kayaks. I recommend the Quick Loops for Thule Bow/Stern Tie-Downs -...

  • Best Ways to Add a 2 Kayak Carrier to a 2017 Ford Escape Roof
  • Primarily, this depends on how you plan to carry the weight of the kayaks. The 2014 Ford Escape is rated for a maximum recommended load of 100lbs on the vehicle if it does not have a moon roof, and 40lbs if it does. This puts quite a cap on the amount of weight that the vehicle can carry, as this limit includes any carrier and crossbar solution that you are planning on using, plus the weight of the kayaks. A simple solution you can use is the SportRack Kayak Carrier, part # SR5530....

  • Recommended Dual Hitch Adapter For 2017 Kia Sorento for Bike Rack and Pop-up Trailer
  • Your 2017 Kia Sorento has a towing capacity of 2,000 to 5,000 lbs depending on what motor and transmission you have. I recommend checking your owner's manual to make sure you are within the manufacturer's specifications. For a trailer hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75908. This will give you a 2 inch opening that will allow you to use the Malone 2" Dual Purpose Hitch Receiver # MPG544. This will allow you to tow your...

  • Malone Crossbars for a 2002 Jeep Liberty
  • The Malone AirFlow 2, part # MPG216 is a confirmed fit for the 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited. You'll notice that the bars themselves are 50-inches to allow for the distance between the installed oval side rails. Be sure to verify your roof's cargo capacity in your owner's manual before loading anything on the crossbars. This capacity will include the weight of your roof rack itself and any additional accessories loaded to manage your cargo. I've included a video review of these bars so...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2005 Honda CR-V
  • Best option for a budget friendly bike rack for your 2005 Honda CR-V would be the Hollywood Racks SR1 part # HRSR1. This is confirmed as a fit for the spare on your vehicle and would be a great way to carry up to 2 bikes. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point.

  • Upgrading Tires on Malone MegaSport Trailer
  • Changing a trailer's tire size does not necessarily equal an upgrade. The most useful way to add safety margin to a trailer is to change the Load Range rating of the existing tire size. I will explain why. Heat is a trailer tire's worst enemy. Heat is what causes most tire failures apart from outright punctures from road debris. The causes for excess heat in a tire are driving it too fast, overloading it beyond its weight rating or by incorrect inflation pressure, either too low or too...

  • How does Roof Rack Bar Sizing Work?
  • Roof Rack sizing is a little different than what you'd expect it to be. Each rack's length is measured by the length of the bar from end to end, letting you pick the amount of distance the bar goes past the bars on the top of your Jeep. The other measurement, called "Cross Bar Spread" is the recommended distance from the center of one bar to the other bar. This helps you pick the size of the roof rack or cargo bag that you can put on top of the vehicle, as well as if a surfboard...

  • How Tall is the Malone AirFlow2 Universal Roof Rack for Raised Side Rails # MPG215
  • The overall height of the Malone AirFlow2 Universal Roof Rack for Raised Side Rails # MPG215 is 4-1/2 inches tall. Since the system clamps onto your factory raised side rails, the overall height that is added to your 2014 Ford Escape will be slightly under 4-1/2 inches. Taking these measurements into consideration, you should be able to measure the distance from the roof of your Escape to the bottom side of the crossbars. We typically advise people against utilizing their sun or moon roof...

  • Replacement 4.80-12 Sized Tires for Malone MircroSport Trailer
  • We actually carry the spare tire that fits the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G. The spare is # MPG465 and does have a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. With that being said it would be more cost effective for you to purchase two 4.80-12 trailer tires, like # TTWSF48012C, and have them mounted to the existing rims. If you need valve stems, # AM20904 will handle the 80 psi needed for these tires. I recommend these Taskmasters because they have an 81 mph speed rating, which is higher than...

  • Does Malone Roof Rack MPG202 Fit 2016 Ford Escape with Raised Side Rails and Sunroof
  • For your 2016 Ford Escape with raised side rails the Malone roof rack part # MPG202 is a confirmed fit that would work well. Your sunroof would not be an issue at all but you'd want to have the rack removed before opening the roof as that will make for quite a bit of noise.

  • What Crossbar Pads Will Work With the TracRac Ladder Rack Crossbars
  • I do have a crossbar pad that will work with the the TracRack crossbars but the Malone SUP 30 Rack Pad Kit with Tie-Downs part # MPG312 will not as the crossbars themselves are wider than the actual pad. For a set of crossbar pads that will work with the TracRack crossbars I recommend using the Thule Surf Pad part # TH804. You will also want to use the Thule Express Surf Strap part # TH531 to secure the cargo onto the pads.

  • How to Reduce Rattle Coming From a Cushioned Ball Mount
  • The Malone Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock System, # MPG908, would work well with your Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount, # AMSC8. The Malone anti-rattle device will help stop the unwanted movement between the ball mount and your vehicle's receiver hitch. However, by using an anti-rattle device on this ball mount you will loose most of the cushioned function of the your ball mount.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2015 Dodge Dart for Kayak Carrier
  • The Malone HandiRack Inflatable Roof Rack # MPG452 that you referenced doesn't have a speed rating. Basically you would have to use your best judgment but most importantly stay under the speed limit. A roof rack like the part # DS126B and # DK402 which is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Dodge Dart would be a better option since it's a custom fit rack that by it's design would give you a more secure rack setup. This rack does not have a speed limit either beyond the speed limit of the road...

  • Solution for Wind Noise with the Malone Roof Rack part # MPG201
  • Roof racks can add some wind noise. Luckily there is a solution for that. If you install a wind fairing you'll direct the air over the bars and the noise will go away. For a fairing to use with the Malone roof rack part # MPG201 the part # Y05017 would be what you need. You can also try moving the bars further back on your rack to see if that helps too.

  • Malone AirFlow Roof Rack for a 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen with Factory Side Rails
  • I did a little research and found that the correct AirFlow roof rack for your 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen with the factory side rails is # MPG215. There isn't a 211 that will fit your Golf but there is # MPG201. The difference between it and the 215 is that the 201 has rectangular bars and 215 has aero bars which are quieter and have less drag. I have included links to videos covering the features of these 2 styles of roof rack. If you can tell me what you want to carry on the roof...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for a 2017 Lexus RX 450h with Raised Side Rails
  • As of yet (July 2017) Yakima does not have a roof rack fit for your 2017 Lexus RX 450h, but I did call them and my contact said that they will be finished testing and have a fit in a month or two. Because of this I recommend going with the Malone AirFlow2 # MPG215 which is confirmed to fit your raised side rails. This roof rack option uses Aero style Crossbars which will help to reduce wind noise and drag. These will install quickly and come with built-in locks to secure the roof rack...

  • Is Malone XtraLight Trailer Easy to Assemble, Good on Highway, Easy to Move, Comparable to Yakima

The instructions are some of the best I have seen with easy to understand explanations and color pictures. I have included a link to them for you. I have no doubt that you would be able to assemble the trailer without any problems. Small trailers like this are fine on the highway when loaded. What can make a trailer, any trailer, bounce or sway is the...
