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.

  • Roof Rack for 2018 Nissan Rogue With Raised Roof Rails
  • We can help you with an aftermarket roof rack that can be fitted to your 2018 Nissan Rogue that has raised roof rails. All compatible rack systems for your Rogue are shown on the page I linked for you but I can offer some specific recommendations too. Among the most popular options is the Thule AeroBlade Edge roof rack # TH7502B-TH7502B. The reason this rack is so popular is that is offers an appearance much like a very expensive OEM roof rack from the dealerships, but at a fraction...

  • Recommended Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter for RV Bike Carrier and Tow Bar for Towing Small Car
  • To attach a hitch mounted bike rack while flat towing a vehicle behind your motorhome, you will need a dual hitch receiver like the Malone 2" Dual Purpose Hitch Receiver # MPG544. This will allow the top raised portion of the adapter to accept an RV compatible bike rack and the lower portion will accept your tow bar. This adapter will reduce your hitch receiver's tongue weight capacity by 50% but that won't be an issue with what you are looking to do as long as you are flat towing instead...

  • 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,...

  • Recommended Crossbars for Standard 5x8 Utility Trailer to Carry 2 Kayaks
  • The Malone Crossbar Conversion Kit for Standard Utility Trailer # MPG475 may work well on your utility trailer, but it is designed to attach to the frame and not the side rails, so you'd need to install through the floor mesh on your Tractor Supply 5x8 foot utility trailer. To have a crossbar system that attaches to the raised side frame, I recommend the Malone TopTier Load Bar Kit for Utility Trailers - 250 lbs # MPG493 which is high as you mentioned but can have the supports cut...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk with Raised Roof Rails
  • Yes, as long as your 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk has raised rails that run front to back the Malone roof rack part number # MPG215 is a confirmed fit and will work well. I attached a review video for this roof rack that shows it installed on a similar Jeep Cherokee as yours as well.

  • 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.

  • Difference Between Malone SeaWing and MegaWing
  • So the big difference between the Malone MegaWing part # MPG207 and the SeaWing # MPG107MD is the weight capacity of either. The MegaWing is rated for up to 150 lbs and the SeaWing 75 lbs. You'd be fine with either as your Pelican Catch 100 has a weight of 65 lbs. Since the price is very similar going with the higher rated MegaWing seems to be the best value though.

  • How to Easily Load Two Kayaks on a 2012 Honda Odyssey
  • In order to carry two kayaks on your 2012 Honda Odyssey, I recommend using the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG216 with the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier part # MPG114MD and the Malone TelosXL Load Assist Module part # MPG351XL. The AirFlow2 will allow you to mount both kayaks using the carrier with the load assist in addition to most cargo boxes from Yakima, Thule, Rhino Rack etc. The load assist bars are angled and have height adjustments so you do not need to worry about any...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2015 Subaru Outback Compatible with Malone Kayak Carrier
  • If you have the flush mounted rails that run front to back on your 2015 Subaru Outback, then I recommend the following roof rack: Yakima CoreBar Crossbars - 50" Long # Y00421 SkyLine Towers # Y00148 Landing Pad 15 # Y00241 Lock Cores # Y07204 If you have the raised side rails, then I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex StealthBar Roof Rack # JA7975. Both of these options are rated for up to 165 lbs and will work well with the Malone SeaWing Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG107MD....

  • Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier Compatibility With Factory Crossbars On 2016 Jeep Cherokee
  • Can you send me a picture of your Jeep's factory crossbars? Or if you can send the picture with the DownLoader on the bars showing how it doesn't fit. We haven't had the chance to install the carrier on a Cherokee yet so I'm not sure how well it fits on the factory bars.

  • Comparing the Malone RunWay and Swagman XC Bike Racks
  • To keep the bikes from making contact with each other as well as the back of the vehicle I recommend only looking at platform style bike racks such as # MPG2149 and the Swagman XC # S64650. With the hanging style racks you referenced the bikes will likely make contact with each other though it is unlikely they would make contact with the vehicle. All bike racks will have some movement when installed. Both the RunWay and XC have an anti-rattle hitch bolt to limit the movement but keep...

  • Can Rack'em Fitz-All Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack Carry Two Kayaks
  • The Rack'em Fitz-All Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack # RA-28 can absolutely be used to carry a pair of kayaks as the rack has bars which are 2-1/6" tall x 1" wide so you can use a saddle-style kayak carrier. The best carrier depends on the weight of your kayaks; if they are heavier kayaks you can use the Malone MegaWing # MPG207 which has a weight capacity of 150 lbs. If you do not need that much capacity then the better option is the Malone SeaWing Kayak Carrier # MPG107MD which has a...

  • 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...

  • 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 # SR5531....

  • Malone Roof Rack Recommendation to Carry 2 Kayaks on a 2015 Toyota Sienna w/Factory Rails
  • While a 50 inch long set of bars may seem long enough it is possible that they won't be long enough for the 2 kayaks on your 2015 Toyota Sienna. So to err on the side of caution I do recommend going with longer bars. In this case that would be roof rack # MPG216. That extra 8 inches could be the difference between fitting two kayaks on the Downloaders, # MPG114MD, and the kayaks rubbing against each other.

  • Roof Canoe Carrier System for Use with Hitch Load Support on 2018 Hyundai Ioniq
  • All roof racks currently made for your 2018 Hyundai Ioniq, shown on the linked page, consist of two crossbars and the related foot assemblies. But since you have a hitch support like the Malone Axis # MPG907 to hold one end of your canoe I do have a good solution for you that will cost much less. We offer canoe carriers that do not require any roof rack crossbar. These cost-effective carriers include items like the Malone Canoe Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG156. This kit includes 4...

  • Recommended Kayak Paddle Holder and Gear Storage for Kayak Trailer with Roof Rack Style Crossbars
  • I reached out to my contact at Malone and they said adding something like that would not be something they can comment on. They can only approve their own accessories, so adding something custom like that can void your warranty. The tongue us 2x3 inches so your load support would not be very strong. My recommendation is to use the Storage Trunk for Malone MicroSport and XtraLight Trailers - Hard Shell - 3.7 cu ft # MPG481 for your storage needs and then use a paddle carrier like...

  • 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...

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendations for a 2014 Subaru Outback with Factory Roof Rack
  • There are several types of kayak carriers that you can use on the factory roof rack on your 2014 Subaru Outback. The J-Style carriers such as the Malone DownLoader # MPG114MD with the Telos load assist # MPG351XL is a great option. This combination will also provide a load assist feature for loading/unloading the kayak. It is rated for 75 pounds.

  • 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.

  • 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...
