Can 2 Kayaks and 2 SUPs Fit on the Malone EcoLight Trailer MAL53FR


I am getting this trailer to haul 2 kayaks and 2 SUPs. Is there enough room for those items if I stack the SUPs? Which kayak mounts would work best with this trailer?


Expert Reply:

On the Malone trailer # MAL53FR the crossbars are 58 inches long. If you were to place the kayaks side by side and on their sides using a carrier such as the Nautic # RRS520 and then placed the SUPS stacked next to the kayaks the overall width of all those products is likely going to be greater than 58 inches.

So really you just need a version of the trailer with longer bars. Trailer # MPG460G has 78 inch long bars. You can do a rough measurement ahead of time by putting the kayaks on their sides, back to back, and the SUPS right next to the kayaks on their backs and measure how wide it is. That will tell us if 78 inches is enough or if you need to step up to a version with longer bars.

I have included a link to all of our roof rack on wheels type of trailers. There are a lot of options!
