Heavy-Duty, 2-Tier Trailer Hauls Kayaks or Canoes and Cargo

MPG550-TH In Use

This heavy-duty, 2-tier trailer with padded bunks and storage containers lets you bring your favorite kayaks, canoes, and other gear on your outdoor adventure. With a 7-1/2' long tongue, this trailer offers exceptional clearance during tight turns. The extended tongue also makes it easier to back up the trailer and prevent binding than trailers with shorter tongues.

MPG461B2 bottom side bunks

Heavy-duty bunks stabilize your boat and prevent movement while traveling on uneven or rough terrain. They can be adjusted to accomdate different size hulls and eliminate boat-to-boat contact. The bunks' durable padding prevents scuffs, scratches, or damage to your boat during transport. To prevent mold or mildew, the bunks have weather-resistant covers to repel moisture and water.

mal64zr 2nd tier load bars

This lightweight, top-tier load bar system provides second level storage and additional space for accessories like a bike rack, fishing rod storage tube, or a lighter boat. The rear load bar adjusts to accomodate different size cargo and prevent uneven loads.


mpg537 dry storage container

This versatile storage container conveniently stows your important cargo and slides out from between the crossbars for easy access to your gear. It has a removable lid with water-tight gasket to ensure your gear stays dry. A metal hinge and hasp is used to secure the lid to the container and can be used with a padlock (sold separately) to deter theft.


mpg547 wire basket

This lightweight wire storage basket is great for holding all your wet or dirty gear after a day on the water. The open mesh design allows your gear to dry while being stored. With a black powder coated finish, this container is durable and weather-resistant.


Submersible LED Trailer Lights

MPG535 LED tail lights

The DOT-approved tail lights on this trailer are fully submersible, so you don't have to worry about damaging the lights when loading and unloading your boat in water. Each tail light has brake, running light, and turn signal functions, as well as side marker lights and reflectors. In addition, these LED lights last longer, burn brighter, and require less power than incandescent bulbs.


Plug-and-Play Trailer Wiring

CE48870 main harness to 4-way

The wiring for this trailer has a simple plug-and-play design, so it doesn't require any cutting or splicing to install. As you assemble the trailer, route the main wiring harness through the trailer tongue and down towards the body of the trailer. Then plug the 4-wire end of the tail light harness into the main harness.


CE48870 4-way plug

Run the wires of the tail light harness along the sides of the trailer frame and plug the individual wires into the matching wires on the side marker lights and the tail lights. The wires are color-coded so that you can easily match them up - no circuit tester is required. Once all of the wires are plugged in, use the included clips to secure the harness to the frame.


CE48870 4-way plug

When you're ready to connect the trailer to your vehicle, simply plug the trailer end of the main harness into the 4-way flat connector on your vehicle.


Leaf Spring Suspension

MPG535 leaf spring suspension

This trailer includes a leaf spring suspension system to limit road shock while you tow. A sturdy steel axle runs beneath the trailer frame. The 2 slipper springs that support the axle flex to absorb the rough motion that can occur when driving over bumpy terrain. Also, the axle, spring hangers, and tie plate are galvanized to resist rust and corrosion.


Quick and Easy Trailer Hookup

MPG535 trigger style coupler

Hooking this trailer to your vehicle is quick and easy. The trailer's coupler connects to a 2" hitch ball, and the included safety chains act as an emergency measure if the coupler accidentally disconnects from your hitch ball. A rubber coated lift handle is mounted to the coupler to provide a solid grip for lifting or maneuvering the trailer. Finally, the skid plate on the underside of the trailer tongue keeps the coupler from touching the ground.


MPG535 manual crank jack with dwiveling wheel

An easy-to-use manual crank jack allows you to raise or lower the coupler height for quick trailer adjustment. The jack comes with a swiveling wheel that rotates 360 degrees for full trailer control. A built-in handle twists and locks into place, folding the jack in a horizontal position against the tongue when not in use.

The trailer works really well, light enough to maneuver by hand. It works with kayaks or canoes. I would pass on the cargo containers, everything in the metal one gets dirty and the plastic one is not dust proof or even rain proof.

It is holding up great, it a real nice trailer no issues.

Great product, great price and great customer service.

The MALONE trailer is fantastic. Far more robust than I was expecting. Having just retired with more time to paddle, I was tired of taking the boats on and off the roof all the time, especially my 18' rowing shell with seat inside. My wife was too short to load anything except on top of our smallest car.
We live on an island and next year I may start a small kayak touring venture. The trailer will be perfect.
My only comment to help you improve would be better instructions for the add-on rack kit. The trailer instructions were perfect.



by:

I was tried of lifting kayaks onto our Toyota Highlander and the ladder rack on our Ford F-250 4X4 truck. While I am in good shape, after 66 years of use, I decided that a kayak trailer would be a better option than sore shoulders. A trailer would also allow us to haul additional kayaks for outings with friends and family. After weighing all the scenarios, I settled on the Malone Megasport. It arrived amazingly fast and after about 5 hours the trailer materialized our of the 7 boxes. The assembly was straightforward and the great videos on the etrailer website helped considerably. After assembly, registering the trailer with our DMV was painless. The trailer tows easily, our kayaks are secure and the storage trunk (additional purchase) is massive and stores our pfds and associated gear. I installed 2 Malone Downloader J-hook kayak racks and a Malone Seawing rack. If I need to haul a fourth kayak, I will install another Downloader. The Megasport has been a great investment! The customer service and follow up was also great! Thank you, Kaylyn R.!
The only suggestion I have is that the folks at Malone should include rubber grommets to protect the wiring as it threads through the frame. I bought and installed grommets myself but I think they should have been supplied by the manufacturer.



by:

Received the kayak trailer in six boxes. Removed all the parts from the boxes and placed them on a large tarp in the order required by the instructions. I took my time putting the kayak trailer together since I am 80 years old and did not want to miss a step. I am very pleased with the results and I can load and unload my two kayaks easily



by:

I've had the trailer for a year so far. I love it! Its light, easy to tow, and makes loading kayaks way easier than loading them on our car. Now, when we go kayaking, we regularly throw all our friends kayaks on the trailer too, makes pick ups at the end of a run way easier. I will never go back. We love this thing.



by: 03/01/2023

This trailer while functional, is not particularly user friendly. Thus far we have had 1 safety recall and 3 flat tires. I'd suggest adding lock tight to all of the provided nuts as an extra safety precaution as well otherwise they will rattle loose. The plates that hold up the branches need padding otherwise they cut into the kayaks when they are strapped in place. The license plate holder is also very low to the ground. My suggestion for anyone purchasing this is to drill holes into the back beam and make your own spot for the plate, otherwise it may get knocked off/ bent going over any bumps.



by:

My trailer was on back order until the middle of October.But i got it on September 15 2020.I was very happy about that.Great customer service ! Love my new Malone Mega Sport trailer.Very well built !

Among the many sources for purchasing the trailer for my boat rental business, River house Boats in Rowlesburg, WV etrailer was straight forward about delivery and came through even before the projected delivery date. They have my highest rating! Tim Weaver, owner.

  • Best Malone Trailer For Making Hauling 4 Kayaks EASY!
    That's a great plan! I am happy to help and my first suggestion would be to just stick with the MicroSport Trailer with J-Style Kayak Carriers # MPG462G2 just because it can already hold 4 kayaks. Piecing these trailers together I have found to be a little more work with not the best possible result. If you guys are set on the two tier idea than I would highly recommend getting the Malone MegaSport 2 Tier Trailer for Heavy Boats - 2 Storage Containers # MPG550-TH for many different reasons.

  • Malone Trailers Speed Rating and Tire Replacement Options
    The speed rating is listed at 70 mph for the Malone MegaSport 2 Tier Trailer for Heavy Boats - 2 Storage Containers - 14' Long - 1000 lbs # MPG550-TH. This is rated for 70 mph max due to the tires. Traveling faster is not recommended as the tires could overheat and fail but traveling at 70 mph max consistently wouldn't be an issue so it will add 15 minutes to your trip but will get you there safely.

  • Transporting 4 Bikes on 2018 Subaru Forester While Towing Malone MegaSport 2 Tier Trailer MPG550-TH
    On the Malone MegaSport 2 Tier Trailer # MPG550-TH the second tier crossbar assembly # MPG545 has a weight capacity of 150-lbs. Since the average bike weighs about 35-lbs four bikes could have a total weight close to this limit. By the time you add the weight of the bike carriers you'd probably be over the limit. The two bars on the upper tier will also be too far apart for most bike carriers, plus you'd have to lift the bikes up pretty high! A better option for transporting bikes while...

  • Can Top Tier of Malone MegaSport 2 Tier Trailer for Heavy Boats be Removed
    You can definitely disassemble the top tier of the Malone MegaSport 2 Tier Trailer for Heavy Boats # MPG550-TH when it isn't needed. I've attached a photo showing the assembly of the top tier section. You probably wouldn't have to break it down completely, but you would need to remove those brackets that it installs on. The tire size that comes with this trailer is 20.5 x 8.0 x 10 and it is a bias ply tire. Radial typically perform better on the highway than bias, but bias used to be the...
