Lightweight Trailer is Perfect for Hauling Kayaks or Canoes

MPG586XL In Use

This lightweight and versatile trailer comes with a post-style carrier so you can transport 4 kayaks or canoes. With a 6-3/4' 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.


MPG568 post-style cradle

Durable post-style kayak carrier with soft foam pads prevent scuffs, scratches, or damage to your boat during transport. The pads stabilize your boat and help prevent road shock while traveling on uneven or rough terrain.


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.


CE48870 main harness to 4-way

The wiring for this trailer has a simple design, so it requires very little 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.


Run the wires of the tail light harness along the sides of the trailer frame and attach the individual wires into the matching wires on the side marker lights and the tail lights using wire connectors. The wires are color-coded so that you can easily match them up - no circuit tester is required. Once all of the wires are secure, 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.

Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with Post Style Carrier for 4 Kayaks - 400 lbs - MAL63FR

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (22 Customer Reviews)

Lightweight and versatile trailer is perfect for hauling 4 kayaks or canoes. Stacker-style carrier with soft foam padding holds your boats securely in place. 11' Long marine-grade trailer with 8" wheels supports boats up to 14' long.

We started with small trips (22 miles one way) to gain confidence and kayak configurations. It was flawless. Feeling confident in the trailer and our rigging abilities we headed out for 1900 miles round trip with small trips to river and inter coastal. Spectacular with heavy kayaks (old town MK106x2) and a Wilderness tarpon 106 along with a Lifetime.
Because the MK106 are so wide we laid them flat and put the other kayaks on top. This worked well with some load shift and cushion fatigue but we weren’t using them by design so can’t complain. Overall excellent little trailer with big capabilities.

Review from a similar EcoLight in Kayak Trailer


Overall, I'm very pleased with this trailer. I can store my kayaks on the it in my garage and have it hooked up to my car, ready to go to the lake, in five minutes. Putting it together was not difficult. The quality is very good with one exception. The wiring harness that came with the kit seemed flimsy and fragile, with the insulation easily nicked. When I plugged it into my vehicle it blew a fuse in my car. I decided to scrap their wiring and went to the hardware store and purchased a new wiring harness that seemed sturdier. I also purchased heat shrink butt connectors for all the connections. The new harness has worked fine, with no further problems. The only other modification I made was additional padding on the J-style carriers to better cushion the boats and around the cross bars where they meet the vertical support to protect the tie down straps from sharp edges.
The 8-inch wheels make me a little nervous, but I repacked them with a high-quality grease (Triax Atlas 600 synthetic) at the end of summer and will replace the bearings at the end of this summer, probably with Timken bearings. I have also purchased a spare hub assembly with prepacked bearings to take with me on the road in case of a failure.

Review from a similar EcoLight in Kayak Trailer


The Ecolight has proven to be an excellent base frame for hauling two Hobie fishing kayaks. I’ve modified it by adding higher risers, a plywood floor and wire sides to haul more of the stuff that needs to go out with the kayaks. Even with the extra additions, kayaks, and stuff, it’s still light enough to easily move around by hand. (60+woman here) Pulls behind my little Chevy Trailblazer with no fuss.

Lightweight durable trailer…perfect for us as we are no longer able to lift our kayaks on to our roof rack. Highly recommend!!

PERFECT! I carry my tandem kayak effortlessly, and I was able to easily retrofit a bicycle rack next to the kayak rails. I love it.

Review from a similar EcoLight in Kayak Trailer


I’m very pleased with this trailer. The quality far exceeded my expectations. I will use it to transport my two 14 foot kayaks as I don’t feel like hoisting them to the roof of my car anymore. I am not mechanically inclined and was a bit intimidated when it arrived in three boxes. However the step by step instructions guided me through the assembly process and I put it all together over the course of a long afternoon.

Review from a similar EcoLight in Kayak Trailer


'You get what you pay for'. The quality of the materials and fabrication made the assembling enjoyable without having to force pieces to 'make then fit'. Studying the instructions first, then going slow, made my trailer go together without issue. If I had it to do over again I would buy a Malone trailer without hesitation. Thank you for making such a quality product!

Exactly what I was looking for! Great quality and fairly easy to assemble! Fits perfect in our garage and holds out two kayaks, but could transport more! Great product :)

Review from a similar EcoLight in Kayak Trailer


Great trailer, easy assembly. Good directions, bad pictures. Use the etrailer assembly video! Solid, well made piece of road hardware. One note: I bought this to use my Yakima JayLow racks on, specifically because it says it will work with them. It will not. Although the rack can clamp on the 1 1/2" square bar, it is not stable and they will fall right off. I replaced the square bar with a 1" ID galvanized steel pipe cut to the correct length and it works great. Yakima says that rack is not really designed to clamp on square tubing.

We received the trailer, it was easy to assemble after watching the video. The item was on back order and came directly from Malone. etrailer was more than helpful with guidance on when to expect delivery. Thanks for your help and great product!! Would recommend.

Review from a similar EcoLight in Kayak Trailer


We have used the trailer for a few weeks now and we are generally satisfied with it. The trailer can be loaded easily and moved by hand even with two kayaks on it. It seems to ride Ok when towing at normal road speeds. Reversing it takes some practice, probably because it has a narrower track than the utility trailers that I've towed in the past. Assembly was Ok, although I agree with a another reviewer that you need to be comfortable using a torque wrench and wire strippers. The instructions need to be updated and clarified. It took me a while to figure out how the wire clips worked. I wish the wiring was heavier gauge for overall robustness.



by:

Review from a similar EcoLight in Kayak Trailer


The trailer is outstanding. The customer service and sells staff are easy to contact and are very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. The only thing that needs improvement are the assembly instructions. The images are blurry and confusing (not a deal breaker). I highly recommend doing business with this company.

Ask the Experts about this Malone Kayak Trailer



  • 4 Kayak Carrier Trailer that Can Fold Up for Storage When Not in Use
    If the goal was a 4-kayak trailer that can be stored upright the best solution would be the Malone LowMax XtraLight Trailer with J-Style Carriers for 4 Kayaks # MAL65FR as it has the bumpers on the rear of it that allow it to be propped up against a wall and has a detachable tongue. The # MAL63FR wouldn't be ideal even if the bumpers were available since the taillights would have to be relocated and you'd have to install the hinge kit.

  • Watersports Trailer That Will Fit Through A 5'8" Gate
    The Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer with V-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks - 800 lbs # MAL52FR has crossbars that are not meant to be removed. The crossbars measure 78" long and for that reason I recommend going with a different trailer that will fit your 5'8" gate without removing anything from the trailer. I would look into the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with J-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks - 400 lbs # MAL93FR which has J-cradles for 2 kayaks just like the LowBed MicroSport. This will...

  • Spare Tire For Malone EcoLight Sport Trailers
    Yes, the Kenda 4.80/4.00-8 Bias Trailer Tire with 8" Galvanized Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 # AM30030 is a substitute for the Spare Tire for Malone EcoLight Trailer # MAL33FR. Both tires are capable of being used on the Malone EcoLight Trailers # MAL53FR, # MAL73FR, # MAL93FR, # MAL63FR and # MAL43FR.

  • Is One Thule Stacker Kayak Carrier Able to Hold 4 Kayaks
    You would just need one of the Stacker kayak carriers # TH830 for 4 kayaks. You will need some additional bow/stern tie downs though such as # Y04031. To determine if you have enough crossbar length for 4 kayaks you can measure each one from the ground to the top at the center of each kayak and then add it all up. The free space on the bars would need to be at least that much plus a few additional inches to account for the Stacker. Another thing to consider is the capacity of the roof rack....

  • Can Malone MAL63FR EcoLight Sport Trailer Carry 15 Foot Canoe
    The Malone # MAL63FR is meant for boats up to 14 feet in length. As your Old Town Saranac 146DLX is almost 15 feet long, the # MAL63FR wouldn't be a good choice as the bow of the canoe would sit too close to the rear of the tow vehicle which could possibly damage the canoe or vehicle. I'd recommend a longer trailer like # MPG460G which can handle boats up to 20 feet long, which would work better with your canoe. To secure the canoe to the trailer's crossbars, you can use the # MPG156...

  • How To Transport 4 Kayaks And 1 SUP On A 2010 Honda Odyssey
    The Thule Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830 is the best option for carrying 4 kayaks on the roof of your vehicle. This comes with straps for one kayak, so will need 3 more Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops # TH855XT (or something similar) to secure each kayak and you will also need 3 Tie-Down Strap with buckle # 753-2030-02. I do not see a way for you to safely add the SUP to the roof while the 4 kayaks are loaded as there will not be enough room and...

  • Best Kayak Trailer for 4 Kayaks
    I recommend using the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with Post Style Carrier for 4 Kayaks # MAL63FR because it allows you to carry all 4 kayaks where the MicroSport Trailer # MPG461GU is setup for 2 kayaks. The XtraLight trailer has a 275-lbs total capacity, so as long as your kayaks don't weigh more than that combined it would be a good choice to carry all your boats. The XtraLight is designed for use with a 2" hitch ball and comes with a 4 way trailer connector. If you need the added...

  • What Do You Recommend for Transporting 3 Kayaks on a 2020 Nissan Titan?
    I have a solution for you. We do carry the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Post Style - Folding - 4 Kayaks # RRS520. The Nautic Stac will clamp onto crossbars with maximum dimensions of 3 inches wide x 1-1/2 inches tall. In order to determine a definite fit on your Haul Master Ladder rack, I recommend measuring those dimensions. The Nautic Stack also comes with hardware to use on t-slot channels. However, I confirmed with Rhino-Rack that the t-slot hardware will not...

  • Best Way to Transport 4 Kayaks on 2015 Chevy Traverse
    Without knowing the length of the crossbars and the weight of the kayaks, I would have some doubts that you're going to be able to carry 4 kayaks on the roof of a 2015 Chevy Traverse-but if you were going to do it the Thule Stacker # TH830 would be the way to go since they don't take up a ton of space. You're going to need roughly 50" (the Stacker takes up about 3" of bar space) of crossbar space to successfully do this. I would also recommend checking your owner's manual to find out the...

    It looks like you have the Adarac Pro Series ladder rack on your 2021 Ram 1500 Crew Cab. Unfortunately, with two sets of the Rhino-Rack 2 kayak carriers # S512-S512X, you need at least 56 inches of crossbar space. However, depending on height of your kayaks (the thickness of the hulls when the kayaks are on their side in the post style), there may be an option for you. If you have thinner kayaks, the best bet is the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Post Style - Folding...
