Multipurpose Trailer Hauls Different Types of Boats and Cargo

MPG535 In Use

This heavy-duty trailer with 78" crossbars has extensive space to mount accessories like watersport carriers, bike racks, a fishing rod carrier, or a cargo box (sold separately). 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.

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.

Heavy-duty trailer is perfect for hauling canoes, kayaks, and SUPs. 78" crossbars offer plenty of space to carry cargo boxes and other accessories. 13' Long marine-grade trailer with 12" wheels supports boats up to 20' long.


Good quality trailer. Went together easy, had all the parts even though the main packaging was torn open from shippment. Got it licensed with no problems.
I will be hauling my 2019 Hobie Outback on this trailer. Also mounted a 6" tube for
my fishing poles. Will also be adding the storage box. Have not had it on the road
yet. I like the size of this trailer, not very heavy or to large.

Its been working out great! Diffidently was a good purchase. It handles my Hobie Outback kayak with ease. I can loadunload it easily by myself. I haul it with my Jeep wrangler. The trailer is lite enough that I can move it around myself. I did not install the storage box, because I feel that it needs support from the bottom. Im afraid with to many bumps on the road could cause it to fail. So I keep it inside the Jeep instead. Still Im glad I purchase the storage box, very handy.


The search for a trailer to carry our two Hobie Kayaks was extensive. My main concern was finding one that could carry the two heavy (83 lbs. ea.), travel at highway speeds and be easy to use. This Malone MicroSport trailer has turned out to be great. It is easy to get our kayaks on and off the trailer at the lake. Rhino-rack Nautic roof rack carriers were installed to carry the kayaks because I wanted them to provide conforming support for the hulls. They have proven to be capable of carrying the weight of the Hobie kayaks and the kayaks can be slid on them when loading/off-loading. This was a primary concern because capacity is not listed with most carriers. Assembly of the trailer was fairly easy and I would rate it requiring moderate mechanical skill. Before doing this assembly I watched a fantastic video online, walking you through the assembly.

I would add just a couple things. Those include: 1. It would be easier to do most of the assembly on a table, until you get to the wheels. Especially true for us older folks that don't bend so well. 2. Be sure to read the wiring harness installation a few times before installation. It is tricky, but will work if you follow the instructions correctly. There is barely enough wire to connect the tail lights. I wound up having to splice some wire because of problems I had. 3. You will need to get some grommets to protect the wires going through the holes in the frame. They are not supplied with the kit. Other than that the trailer works great,very solid and have had no issues traveling at highway speeds. Attached is a photo of the trailer with the kayaks.


Excellent Instructions made assembly straightforward without miss-steps. In my case, 6 hours and assembled.

Its great. Even better than I imagined. Perfect for my needs.


Was able to order the item when it was not in stock. Trailer was sent directly from Malone but without a proper bill of sale. Now I'm getting the run around and have a trailer that can't be registered.


Product was as advertised, however it was missing four bolts that I had to get at a hardware store, but other than that it was fine. Service from etrailer team was outstanding.


I used this for the full 2021 season on at least 20 trips. I use it for quick trips to local lake withe kayak, works perfect, leave boat on trailer, drop on hitch and go. Cust load and unload times in half. The order was complete Fubar, misteaks by all UPS< Malone and etrailer. Extra parts, wrong parts. But I was able to get a real person at etrail and it was all straighened out. Including the title and paper work I needed to register in MA. Assembly takes a bit, but if you pay attention to the directions, it is straight forward. The issues I had was because I didnt pay attention, mounted srpings backward, and did discover till much later, then you have to disseble much and redo to fix. Just go slow and check each step before proceeding.


Fairly easy to assemble, works well transporting a sunfish and 2 kayaks. Good quality trailer overall


Great trailer for my Hobie PA12 kayak. Pricing for this item is the same everywhere so service makes all the difference - etrailer and their rep Kathy delivered. They provided excellent communications and updates on shipping and a timely receipt of the MCO made it easy to title. Overall a professional experience. Thank you!


The trailer assembly was easy. The most difficult part, if any, was centering the support bars. We just wish it was 'Made in the USA' instead of China. etrailer expediently shipped the (4 total) packages. We were pleasantly surprised how quickly we received them. FYI: The registration documents are mailed separately. We look forward to loading up our kayaks and going fishing. Cheers!


Only thing I would suggest would be adding a video on your website about backing the trailer up from various angles. I still have problems with that.

I found a video on our site that will help you:


Great little trailer. Perfect for what I needed...something to haul my 16 1/2 foot canoe and 13' 8" kayak. Instructions were clear and there were no components missing.


Sliding tongue and ability to store vertically against garage wall is great and very easy to do. Use trailer to haul a pair of 14 foot sit on top kayaks; hauls them well and is easy to load and tie down the kayaks.


This was the perfect solution for me. I needed a way to transport kayaks with a vehicle that did not work with rooftop racking systems. Not to mention much easier to load/unload than a roof rack. Customer service is very nice any very helpful. All and all, a great experience!


Only problem is various boxes arrived over a 3 day period, assembly 3+ hours, but all parts present, trailer works well


Easy to assemble with minimal tools. Grandkids Ivan and Jeanette did the work, grandpa checked mechanical integrity. Ready to go and play by the afternoon.


Excellent is an understatement. Very easy to order on line. All questions answered without hesitation. Product shipped and was received in a timely fashion. Great company






: Didn't work out at all considering with the j-hooks installed the trailer is way too deep to hug a wall, so I store the trailer outside with a tarp over it. If you have to store the trailer with the tongue retracted, this is a must have.


We have used and enjoyed the kayak trailer for about a year. It is a pleasure to arrive home from a kayak trip and I just unhook the trailer and back it into the garage. No more have to lift the kayaks on and off the top of the pickup. During winter I remove the support bars, and tongue to set the trailer up on end against the wall. The only issue has been the wing nuts on kayak holders. I could not tightened them so that the holders move during transport. To solve this issue I replaced the wing nuts with lock nuts. Also the bolt head slips during the tightening of the lock nuts. Other than that, we love the trailer.


Took my wife and I 4hrs to put it together. Instructions were accurate and easy to follow. Perfect fit for our two pedal drive kayaks 12ft And 14ft. Tip- using battery powered impact wrench would have made the process much faster. Very pleased with the results and thanks etrailer for another great shopping experience.


I researched a number of different trailer options for my pair of Hobie fishing kayaks. Due to their weight, proper support was crucial to prevent long term sagging. I liked the multiple options available with the Malone Microsport trailer and went with the twin bunk option.

The Microsport trailer is sturdy and easy to assemble. The instructions were detailed and easy to understand. I also took advantage of assembly video on the website. All this being said, I found the estimated 3 hour assembly time to be overly optimistic. (It took me about 5 hours.)

I like the fact that all of the parts are galvanized. Living in a rainy area and using the trailer to store the kayaks when not in use, rust prevention is important to me. I'm confident the trailer will last a long time.

I've already towed my kayaks over 100 miles to our vacation home without incident. The trailer towed like a dream. The LED lights are bright and easy to see from behind, even though the kayaks overhang the back of the trailer by at least 4 feet. I was not concerned about drivers behind me not being able to see my turn signals and break lights.

All in all, the Malone Microsport trailer is great, reasonably-priced trailer for kayaks and canoes. It also makes a great rack to store them on, if you have the space.


Great trailer to hold my large fishing kayaks. I am glad I went with this solution as I can permanently store my kayaks on the trailer under my lean to. The trailer took a while to build admittedly and I did have to run to the hardware store to grab a nut I was shorted and replace a metric carriage bolt with thread damage, but overall it is a solid product that drives well and I highly recommend.

A couple notes: The lighting kit is a 4 pin, so you may need to get an adapter if you have an older vehicle (mine had a 7 pin circle style plug only). Also, there is no space tire holder on the trailer like you see in the pictures so you will either have to throw it in your vehicle or acquire parts to attach it to the trailer.

  • Why Are There Multiple Weight Capacities Listed for the Malone MicroSport Trailer
    The weight capacity of the Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG460G is 800 lbs total which I confirmed with Malone for you. The reason you are seeing lower capacities listed elsewhere is because these are older models which have weaker crossbars and leaf springs. If you purchase the Malone MicroSport Trailer from us I can guarantee you will receive the most up to date model with higher weight capacity.

  • Can Malone MicroSport Trailer Use Thule Accessories
    The Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G can absolutely utilize your Thule accessories because it uses standard square crossbars which are the same as those you would find on a roof rack. So using the MicroSport trailer is a lot like utilizing a roof rack that you are towing behind your vehicle. The biggest difference is this trailer is a whole lot easier to access than the top of most roofs. If you are looking for the easiest way to haul a kayak, this is it.

  • Difference Between Black Or Silver Crossbars on Malone Trailer
    I contacted Malone on your behalf and essentially if a dealer is showing a black load bar style on any MicroSport trailer # MPG460G, it is a pre-2019 model and the dealer either has not updated their imagery or still has an older model in stock. Yakima Sweet Roll Tie Downs # Y04074 are compatible with round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars.

  • Width of Malone MicroSport Trailer And Can it Carry Two Kayaks
    To answer your question about the width, the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G measures 55 inches wide without the crossbars on. In regards to fitting two kayaks, that will depend on their width as well. The crossbars of the Malone XtraLight are 78 inches so if you have one of your kayaks on saddles you would need to measure its width and another in a J-style carrier you would need to measure the kayak's depth/height in order to determine if you have enough room for both to fit on 78...

    There really isn't a for sure answer, because ultimately it will depend on your bikes. The Malone Pilot Trailer Bike Rack # MPG2100 itself is only 6" wide. Which means in theory you can fit 13 of them on the 78" wide crossbars of the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G. But realistically that is not going to happen. I would say you could probably fit 5-6 bikes on the trailer while leaving room for side to side movement. If you don't mind your bikes clanging together, you might be able...
