Expert Answers about Malone

  • Kayak Carrier That Works With TracRac Ladder Rack
  • There is a solution which is going to help save your kayaks from any further damage. To mount them on your TracRac # TA27000-01 I recommend using the Malone Foam Kayak Block # MPG159. These are going to fit directly over the four-inch bars on your Trac-Rac, and you would need two of them per kayak. For tie-downs you would want to use the Malone Bow and Stern Tie-Down Kit # MPG306. I've added links to review videos on both of these products for you.

  • What Size Kayaks Can the Malone XtraLight Trailer Carry
  • The Malone XtraLight Trailer with the V-style kayak carriers, part # MPG526G-V, has a maximum weight capacity of 275 pounds. As long as both of your 13 foot kayaks add up to less than this it'll work for you. Malone Doesn't name a maximum length of kayak the trailer can handle.

  • Differences between Malone MegaWing and SeaWing Kayak Carriers
  • The Malone MegaWing, part # MPG207 and the SeaWing, part # MPG107MD are extremely similar and come in Malone's distinctive red styling, but have different applications. Its not the wrong picture, just not a great one to notice the differences. I contacted Malone directly for more information. They are made with the same mold but different plastics. The MegaWing has roughly double the weight capacity of the SeaWing, coming in with 150lbs of capacity and designed for use in larger applications,...

  • How is the Storage Trunk for Malone Trailers # MPG481 Different from a Standard Storage Trunk
  • I couldn't find too much information regarding the part numbers that you referenced besides that those storage containers have wheels, their storage capacity, and that they came with straps to secure the containers. What sets the Storage Trunk for Malone Trailers # MPG481 apart from other storage trunks like it is that it is customized to fit directly in a Malone trailer's framework like part # MPG460G and it is made in the USA. It also comes with a 5-year warranty, a 9 foot tie-down...

  • Recommended 4-Bike Rack for 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon with Draw-Tite Hitch Installed
  • The Malone Pilot 4 Bike Platform Rack # MPG2112-2115 referenced in your question features a distance of 12-1/2 inches from the furthest hitch pin hole to the closest wheel cradle when the rack is folded down for use. This distance though decreases to just 4-1/2 inches when the rack is folded up for storage against the vehicle. This means that on your 2016 Subaru Outback with the Draw-Tite Hitch installed, you won't be able to fold the rack up without it interfering with the rear bumper...

  • Malone Pilot Platform Rack That Has A 4 Bike Capacity
  • We do have the Malone Pilot 4 Bike Frame or Wheel Mount # MPG2112-2115. In regards to the review that you mentioned, it mentioned this Pilot 4, however the Pilot 4 is a hitch mounted bike rack. If you want to carry more than 2 or 3 bikes, this product is your best option. The rack weight is 52 lbs and the carrying capacity is 4 bikes and a 60 lbs per bike load capacity. If you are interested in a Malone trunk mounted rack, the # MPG2142 is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Subaru Outback...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2017 Mazda CX-5
  • I do have a solution for you, however the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack # 59767 referenced in your question is not confirmed to fit your 2017 Mazda CX-5. If the roof on your CX-5 has factory installed rails that run front to back, I recommend looking at the Malone Roof Rack # MPG215. This is a nice roof rack system with an aerodynamic profile to reduce wind noise and a weight capacity of 165 pounds. The kit will include the two 50 inch long crossbars, 2 towers with keyed locks, 4 end...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2017 Lincoln MKC
  • If you are trying to fit the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Aero Crossbars # MPG215 on the 2017 Lincoln MKC, that product is not a confirmed fit for that vehicle. I have a attached with all the roof racks that are compatible with your Lincoln if you have flush mounted rails that run front to back. My product that fits your vehicle is the 2017 Lincoln MKC Roof Rack by Thule. This package consists of Thule AeroBlade Load Bars # THARB53B, Thule Podium Foot Pack for Aero Bars # TH460R, and Thule...

  • How To Haul Two 10' Kayaks In The Bed Of A Truck
  • In order to haul two kayaks in your 2016 Toyota Tacoma without placing them on the roof of your vehicle, you will need to use a load extender such as the Malone Axis Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender part # MPG907 if the bed of your truck is empty. The extender can be positioned for both vertical and horizontal load extensions. In your case, you will want to place the kayaks flat in the bed. This will not interfere with your tri-fold tonneau cover and will safely allow you to haul the...

  • Malone Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Subaru Forester with Raised Side Rails

  • 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.

  • Availability of the Regular Malone Load Assist for J-Style Kayak Carriers
  • The Malone TelosXL Load Assist Module # MPG351XL actually replaced the regular Malone Load Assist (part MPG351) which is now discontinued. Since this is the case you will want to use the TelosXL.

  • Weight Capacity for a Kayak Carrying Roof Rack System on a 2015 Nissan Rogue
  • Roof rack systems are always limited by the weakest point, be it the rack or the vehicle roof. In your case, 150 pounds is about the same as most roof systems, so you'll have a lot of options with your rack. I tend to recommend aero bars for these applications because they support the weight more evenly than other bar types because of their width. For your vehicle I recommend the Rhino Rack Vortex kit, consisting of: Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars, 46 inches, part # RRVA118B-2 Rhino...

  • Appropriate Size of Roof Bars for a 2013 Cadillac SRX
  • Malone tends to recommend their bars a little longer than normal, primarily because Malone deals a lot in watercraft carriers and they often require additional crossbar spread to use correctly and clear the sides. The 58 inch long Malone AirFlow2, part # MPG216 is sized the way it is so that it properly fits your roof rack spread. The installation instructions and recommended locations tend to put them well out of the way of anyone's heads while getting out of the vehicle. I've included...

  • Will Malone Roof Rack MPG201 Fit a 2016 Ford Escape with Panoramic Roof
  • Since the Malone roof rack # MPG201 attaches to factory side rails that run front to back on the roof of a 2016 Ford Escape and not to the actual roof it will work with the panoramic roof! I have linked a video review of this rack for you.

  • Roof Rack to Fit Both 2017 Jeep Cherokee and 2017 Volkswagen SportWagen
  • I am happy to check for a common roof rack fit for your two vehicles, the 2017 Jeep Cherokee and the 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen. All roof racks we offer for each vehicle are shown on the two linked pages. If the Cherokee has factory roof rails that run front-to-back you could use one set of Rhino-Rack bars, 49-inch Vortex Aero bars # RRVA126B-2, on both vehicles. On the Cherokee the bars will install using SX Leg Kit # RRSX100 and on the VW you can use Leg Kit # RRSX022. The...

  • Recommended Dual Purpose Ball Mount with 8 Inch Extension
  • The Malone # MPG544 does not come in an 8 inch extension, however I do have exactly what you are looking for from another manufacturer. I recommend the Curt Dual 2" Receiver Tube Adapter, 8" Extension # D-192. Using an adapter like this will allow you a second receiver, but you will want to follow the capacity reductions associated with use of an adapter like this. A hitch extender like this will reduce your trailer hitch's overall tongue weight capacity by 50%. If you want the anti-rattle,...

  • Kayak Carrier for a Hobie Pro Angler 14 on a Yakima Rack and Roll
  • I recommend the Malone MegaWing Kayak Carrier # MPG207 to carry your Hobie Pro Angler 14. The Malone fits onto the Yakima round bars and has a maximum weight capacity of 150 pounds. From my research the kayak weighs between 110 to 140 pounds so this is a great option for you.

  • How to Use a Thule Hullavator on a 2015 Toyota RAV4
  • In order to use the Thule Hullavator part # TH898 on your 2015 Toyota RAV4, I recommend using the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG215. These crossbars will attach to the factory side rails on your RAV4 and allow you to use your Hullavator without issue. The crossbar have an aero shape which will work to reduce wind noise and drag. They also come with locks to prevent theft. I have attached a review video of these crossbars installed on a similar RAV4 for you as well. This will give...

  • Does Malone Roof Rack MPG202 Fit 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan with Raised Rails
  • For your 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan the Malone roof rack part number # MPG202 is a confirmed fit that would work well. Malone has test fit it on your vehicle and found that it fit and was perfectly safe. It has a weight capacity of 165 lbs. It does not need to fit into the pin holes of your rails and instead clamps tightly to the bars. When it is tightened to the rails of your roof it would not push back on them from the wind. The rack has a limited lifetime warranty that would protect it...

  • Installation Of Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System Upside Down
  • The Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System # MPG908 holds the ball mount up against one side of the receiver opening. The location as the top or bottom does not effect function. The Hitchlock will be able to handle the weight in any of these locations as the ball mount and receiver are really doing the lifting and this adapter is securing the position to avoid rattle. You can see in the attached installation details that they have installed it in both ways and state "Note: The Anti-Wobble...

  • Recommended Roof Rack For Nissan Rogue With Factory Side Raised Rails
  • If you have factory side raised rails that run front to back the 2013 Nissan Rogue Roof Rack by Malone # MPG215 will fit. This system will fit side rails that are between 1" and 2-1/4" wide and have a max height of 1-1/2". The feet on this unit are going to allow the unit to easily attach to your factory raised side rails on the Rogue. They're going to feature cam assist bolts that ensure a tight fit on smaller side rails, and they are padded. So where they grip around the side rails they...

  • Recommended 2 Inch Dual Hitch Adapter for Flat Towing a Vehicle
  • The Malone Dual Purpose Hitch Receiver part # MPG544 can be used to flat tow a vehicle however, this adapter reduces the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50%. It may still work for you with the reduced tongue weight capacity but I have a better solution for you. The Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter part # RM-077-4 is specifically designed for flat towing applications and will not reduce the tongue weight capacity on your RV's hitch. The adapter is rated at 10,000...

  • Best Way To Haul A Kayak On A 2017 Chevrolet Cruze 5-Door
  • I do have an option that will allow you to carry a kayak on the roof of your 2017 Chevrolet Cruze 5-door, however, as the 5-door models of the Chevrolet Cruze have only been out for a limited amount of time, none of our manufacturers have designed a roof rack confirmed to fit your vehicle yet. Therefore, in order to haul a kayak on the roof of your car, I recommend using the Malone Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG154 as this is the only option there is at this moment to my knowledge....

  • 50 Inch Crossbar Roof Rack Recommendation for 2015 Hyundai Tucson
  • I have a great 50 inch crossbar roof rack that fits your 2015 Hyundai Tucson with factory raised rails but it's not from Malone as they only recommend their 58 inch bar kit part # MPG216. Instead you'd want the Inno kit part # INB127 and # INFR and you'd be set. If you wanted an aero bar setup that close to 50 inches we have the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA126B-2 and # RRSX001 which will give you a 49 inch long crossbar setup.
