Video Transcript for Review of Malone 78" Galvanized Heavy Duty Crossbars For Malone MicroSport Trailers - MPG4001

Hi, everybody. Andy here with And today, we're gonna take a brief look at the 78 inch long galvanized heavy-duty crossbars for your Malone MicroSport trailers. Now, these heavy-duty galvanized crossbars are designed for your Malone MicroSport trailers to provide additional bar length and increase the load capacity to your sport trailer. They're designed for items such as your heavy fishing kayaks, multiple boat transport, and those needing to add bikes or cargo box to their trailer. As you can see on the table before me, all of the mounting hardware that you need to successfully install these bars are included, along with end caps for each ends of the bars, and instructions to guide you step by step.

Let me pull out my tape measure here just to confirm that length with you. We are sitting right at 78 inches long. And then the width of these bars, we are sitting right at an inch and a quarter wide on each of these bars. Well, that's gonna conclude our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you.

Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

Galvanized cross bars for Malone MicroSport trailers. Provide additional bar length to existing sport trailers. Designed for heavy fishing kayaks, multiple boat transport and those needing to add bikes or cargo box to the trailer.


The new 78" load bars fit perfectly. Easy install and the extra width is great for 2 Malone Mega wings to fit 2 Old Town 120s. Shipping was faster than anticipated and everything arrived safe.

After a year of install and over 2 dozen trips, the bars are holding up perfectly. No issues at all with them and they are still as good as the day I installed them.


Package was battered and 2 of the mounting brackets were missing. Also arrived 4 days late.


I wanted to make an extra, tongue-mounted load bar setup for our new tandem kayak. Malone sells a tongue-mounted bar assembly for the regular MicroSport but not for the LowBed. This crossbar and hardware set combined with a Lowbed Conversion Support Tube (item # MAL33TR) worked perfectly for a DIY accessory setup! And etrailer's customer support from George and Amy was wonderful every step of the way!


Needed these crossbars to accommodate two Topwater kayaks (the crossbar that came with the trailer was too narrow. Very well made, heavy duty bars that came with additional hardware that improved the utility of the trailer.


This bar fits better on my trailer. It’s longer so kayaks have more space. It’s larger with size keeps the J hooks more secure too. It was easy to install myself, and I’m 74 yo woman. E trailer delivers



The replacement crossbars are excellent after one year of hard use. I no longer have issues with J hooks slipping. The bars offer D rings for extra security and are a bit longer than original black rubber coated bars. More space for carrying kayaks. Very happy with this product and my Thule accessories still fit as well as J hooks bought on Amazon . No rust after 1 year outside


Heavy duty fit perfect on my Malone trailer love them


These are good sturdy bars. I got them to attach to a utility trailer so that I could add kayak j-bars. I'm very happy with this purchase.


Box was open and hardware was missing.

Customer Service will reach out to you.


I ordered an kit with wider support bars for my kayak trailer. The box was damaged in shipment and some hardware was missing. I called in about it and was promptly sent a complete set of hardware. Excellent customer service. I highly recommend doing business with etrailer


Excellent service but delayed shipping


This is my second build. I automatically considered your products and remain extremely satisfied. When build number 3 comes along, I'll be back.


Was short a couple parts from damaged box. Contacted Customer Service, sent out the extra shorted pieces. Easy- Peezy. Very Happy Here! 5 STARS!


Excellent product. Box was delivered open and missing parts. I called your customer service number and missing parts was sent immediately. Thank you for the product and missing parts


Great product. Needed to add two more kayaks to my trailer. Install was a breeze.

John W.


Crossbar has been working like a charm. No issues!


Works well, allows me to put 3 kayaks on my Malone trailer.


Worked great, replacing bent crossbars.


Order went smoothly and received it very quickly. Always love shopping with eTrailer!


The parts for my kayak trailer arrived complete and very quickly. It was a pleasure working with Robert S. when placing my order.


The product was just what I ordered. I'm expanding my kayak trailer to hold up to 4, so I ordered wider cross bars and another carrier. A little frustrating to find it was not really in stock, however, communication from the etrailer team was outstanding.


always the fastest and most accurate


pleasure to do business with




Very good


Exactly the item needed, shipped in very timely manner.

  • Could Malone Crossbar kit part # MPG4001 Attach to Side Rails of Utility Trailer
    While the Malone Crossbar kit part # MPG4001 wasn't intended to be installed like you mentioned that doesn't mean you couldn't do so. If you wanted to use U-bolts you'd need to find ones that are 1-1/4 inch wide since that's how wide the bars are.

  • Longer Crossbars for TrailBlazer Kayak Trailer
    The Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers part # MPG4001 may be a good fit for your trailer. It contains two 78" long crossbars which will leave you plenty of room for two kayaks. The crossbar are 1-1/4" so they may require modifications for your current setup.

  • Could E-Bike Be Carried on Malone Roof Bike Rack for Malone Roof Rack on Trailer
    The weight capacity of the Malone roof bike rack part # MPG2100 that you referenced is 33 lbs. If the weight of your E-bikes is less than that with the battery removed this would work.

  • Is There a Difference Between Malone Crossbars
    The Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers - 78" Long - Galvanized - Heavy Duty # MPG4001 are an updated version of the Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers - 78" MPG495. They are 78" and can be used in place of MicroSport trailers that have shorter bars.

  • Can Longer Crossbars Be Used When Adding 2nd Tier # MPG474 to MicroSport Trailer
    I reached out to my contact at Malone and he did say that the 50" load bars that are included with the 2nd Tier Kit # MPG474 for your MicroSport Trailer are the longest they can safely recommend. He said that longer top crossbars will lead to instability on the trailer and actually wouldn't be DOT compliant. Using the 50" bars included with the kit is the only option for adding that 2nd tier. I have attached the written installation manual that you can check out as well.

  • Is There A Way To Convert The Malone MicroSport With A High Bed To A Low Bed?
    I checked to see if there was conversion kit to convert your Malone high bed trailer to a low bed # MPG464-LB. I know this isn't going to be ideal, but what you can do is reuse the U-bolts from the cross bars you have now, and reattach the cross bars # MPG4001 with an aluminum bar mounted horizontally across the trailer, as shown in the picture attached. I wish there was a simpler and easier solution, but unfortunately there isn't one. As far as backing your trailer into water, you...

  • How To Carry 2 Hobies On A Malone Extra Light Trailer
    I contacted Malone and the Malone XtraLight Trailer (MPG525) is not compatible with Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers - 78" Long part # MPG4001. The only trailer that can use the longer cross bars is the Malone Microsport trailers that came with 65" standard load bars. The bars on the XtraLight Trailer are almost 5 feet and I know Hobies can be over 2 feet wide so If you are trying to carry the Hobies flat and side by side they may not fit especially with the W style Hobie cradle....

  • Kayak Carrier For 2 Hobie Kayaks On A Malone Trailer
    The Malone J-Pro2 Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG117MD lets you transport 1 kayak on your Malone Trailer. You will need two sets to carry both kayaks. This will make it easier to haul your kayaks using your Malone trailer. The carriers have a quick and easy installation on most crossbars with no tools required.

  • Converting Malone MicroSport Trailer Crossbar Conversion to Low Bed Style
    Since you already have the Malone MicroSport Trailer - Galvanized Steel - 13' Long - 78" Crossbars - 800 lbs # MPG460G already comes with the Malone Crossbar Conversion Kit for Standard Utility Trailer # MPG475. It sounds like you are just looking for the lower crossbars but there isn't a conversion kit option for those bars. You can customize mounts just bolting square aluminum posts at your desired height to the frame and use the Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers - 78" Long -...

  • Strongest Crossbar Option For A 2013 Malone MicroSport Trailer Hauling 4 Grumman 17 Foot Canoes
    You are indeed correct, the Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers # MPG4001 for the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G & the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT does have a combined weight capacity of 375-lbs. Compared to the Inno Square Crossbars # IN436L that you are interested in, which has a maximum weight capacity of 220-lbs, the Malone crossbars are the much better option. Additionally, the Malone Crossbars measure 78" long and are 1-1/4" wide. I have also included a couple...

  • Recommended Replacement Brackets for Crossbars on Malone MicroSport
    The Replacement HD Crossbar Brackets for Malone Trailers # MAL54VR you were looking at are the correct replacement brackets for the Malone MicroSport trailer # MPG460G. These are the brackets that come with the Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers - 78" Long - Galvanized - Heavy Duty # MPG4001. When it comes to the Thule load bars you're referring to, they were not designed for use with these brackets and there likely won't be a solution without some sort of modification made to the...

  • Will Two Sit-On Style Kayaks Work with the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with V-Style Carriers
    The Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with V-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks part # MAL43FR only has 58" long crossbars, these are fine for most standard sit-in style kayaks as they are pretty narrow but won't work great with the wider sit-on style because you run out of crossbar space. In which case, the best option to fix this are longer crossbars, the Crossbars for Malone MicroSport Trailers part # MPG4001 which are 78" long and you can trim off any extra you don't need. This would be far more...

  • Best Malone Trailer To Tow Heavy Kayaks
    The Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG461GS has a capacity of 150 lbs per kayak or boat cradle and the kayak or boat cannot be longer than 20 ft long. The Malone Crossbars part # MPG4001 are 78" crossbars for Malone MicroSport trailers that originally came with shorter crossbars. The Malone MicroSport part # MPG461GS already comes with the 78" bars.

  • Can The Malone Crossbars and 2nd Tier Crossbars Be Used With a Small Boat Trailer?
    We do offer the Crossbars # MPG4001 and 2nd Tier Load Bar System # MPG474 like you see on the Malone 2 Tier LowBed MicroSport Trailer # MPG464-LBT. As these are specifically designed to bolt to the Malone trailer you may have to do some customization to fit on your trailer. You will be able to use the Yakima Crossbar Pads # Y07415 to provide a padding for your kayaks and paddle boards.

  • Which Malone Roof Rack on Wheels Trailer Has 78 inch Long Crossbars
    The crossbars of the EcoLight trailers like the # MAL53FR are different from the Microsport trailer bars like the # MPG4001 you mentioned. They are a different size and attach to the trailer differently. If you want a trailer with this bar length you'd need to go with the MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G which has twice the weight capacity too at 800 lbs.

  • Carrying 4 Kayaks and Storage Trunk on Malone MicroSportXT Kayak Trailer
    Along with the MicroSportXT # MPG460XT you could simply add 4 of the Malone J-Pro2 Kayak Carrier # MPG117MD. You may want to consider a more economical option with the Malone MicroSport Trailer with J-Pro Kayak Carriers # MPG462G2 and add Storage Trunk for Malone MicroSport and XtraLight Trailers # MPG481. The Microsport with J-Pro Carriers comes with the ability to carry 4 kayaks, has a 375 lbs capacity, measures 164" long x 65" wide and has a coupler that attaches to a 2" hitch ball....

  • Malone EcoLight Trailer Conversion To Use Malone Bunk Board Kit
    The Bunk Kit for Malone Trailers # MPG561 is designed to fit the 1-1/4" Crossbars # MPG4001 currently used on Malone trailers. You can still use them with your crossbars but will need to account for the difference in size with some flat steel/aluminum to prevent the mounts from slipping around. I recommend getting the updated crossbars and mounting them using the Malone MicroSport to LowBed Trailer Conversion Support Tubes # MAL33TR as this will lower the mounts on the trailer making it...
