Lightweight Trailer is Perfect for Hauling Kayaks or Canoes

MPG461GS In Use

This lightweight trailer with V-style cradles let you bring your favorite kayaks or canoes 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.

MPG461GS v-style cradle

Durable V-style kayak carriers with rubber padding prevent scuffs, scratches, or damage to your boat during transport. The saddles stabilize your boat and prevent movement 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.

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.

Malone MicroSport Trailer with V-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks - 800 lbs - MPG461GS

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (79 Customer Reviews)

This heavy-duty trailer is great for hauling 2 kayaks or canoes. V-style carriers hold your boat securely in place. Durable saddles with rubber padding protect your boat's finish. Marine-grade trailer supports boats up to 20' long.


This is a sturdy trailer and I'm very satisfied with the product and process. The instructions were probably the most thorough I've ever seen. The title and bill of sale come separately probably so it can't be stolen with all the paperwork



a year later and still 100 satisfied


Works great for transporting my Eddy Line Whisper sea kayak.


Very nice trailer. Took 2 days to put together but it all went well.



: 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.


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.


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.


Can't say enough about the quality and prices. Ashley and Bridgette in CS were extremely helpful in helping me get what I needed in a Kayak trailer, and their follow up was extraordinary. Malone trailer is very sturdy, assembly instructions were right on. Paper work for title and registration was sent to me asap after delivery of the trailer. Trailer tows and tracks very well.


This is a great trailer for the price.
found the packaging and instructions pretty straightforward and easy to follow.
Once together it seems quite solid and I really like the LED lights.
The crew at were in constant contact and very supportive throughout the entire process and all the paperwork for registration came within a week .


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.


Due to the pandemic, I waited 2 months to receive the trailer. It all arrived in good shape and I was able to assemble it easily. I was pleasantly surprised that the hardware and wiring harness had been upgraded to be more robust. I am waiting for plates and then I will see how it does on the road.


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.


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.


Trailer directions straight forward. All materials identifiable, quality made and on hand. Take your time to do it right. Taking on kayak trip this weekend!


Bought the LowBed MicroSport specifically for my Blue Sky Boat Works Angler 360 kayak. Trailer works great! It's lower and makes getting the kayak on and off easier. Had no issues with the trailer assembly. LED lights work great. After one year I'm very happy I bought this trailer.


I started building the trailer yesterday afternoon and just finished it an hour ago after spending three more hours on it today. It went together very well. Institutions were very clear. I am very happy with it. I am attaching a photo.


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


Love this trailer! Works perfect for 1 to 4 kayaks. Easy to Tow! Used on multiple trips & is still working great! Purchased in 2021.


Excellent trailer for my two kayaks …nice not to have to lift kayaks onto top of car ….


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.


I cannot think where I was ever more impressed with a company than Monroe. They were very attentive and never was there a more easier task than building my trailer. There was nothing missing, and it went together with perfection. Not knowing, but a year before I bought the trailer package, I purchased a kayak 2 wheeled portage cart. Wanting a premier carrier, i bought the best , most stable built cart on the market. It so happens that it was a monroe cart as well. Great group of engineers working on innovation everyday.


Always great service ! Any problems and they step up making things right. Highly recommend Etrailer


Nice trailer... easy to assemble... reminded me of a full size Mysto Manufacturing Company Erector set from my childhood. Instructions were clear... everything made sense.


After receiving the 7 boxes, it took me about 5 hours to put it together. All parts and hardware were there and the trailer went together perfectly. I highly recommend this trailer. My Malibu and Caper Ocean Kayaks fit perfectly and should make transporting easier.


Super trailer. Trails beautifully, fun to build, looks great and gets a lot of compliments at our put-ins.

  • Recommended 2 Kayak Trailer Made in the USA
    For a kayak trailer that can hold 2 kayaks and is made in the USA you can use the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer - 86" Crossbars - 1,000 lbs # MPG535 you were looking at. Keep in mind, this does not come with any kayak carriers so you would need to add them separately. If you would prefer an option that comes with carriers, you could use the Malone MicroSport Trailer with V-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks - 800 lbs # MPG461GS. This has a maximum capacity of 150 lbs per boat and a maximum...

  • Would You Recommend the Malone Megawing for the Old Town Sportsman 120 PDL?
    Yes, I would recommend the Malone Megawing # MPG207 for your Old Town Sportsman 120 PDL because the the Megawing gives you the versatility you need whether you want to mount it on top of your crossbar system or your kayak trailer. The Megawing comes with 2 load straps with cam buckles to secure the cradles to your crossbars as well as 2 bow/stern ties to secure your Sportsman to your vehicle.

  • Recommended Storage Trunk for a Malone MicroSport Trailer
    The Storage Trunk for Malone MicroSport Trailers item # MPG481 is exactly what you need for the Malone MicroSport Trailer item # MPG461GS.

  • Choosing Between A V Rack And A J Rack For A Malone Kayak Trailer
    I recommend the V-Racks or horizontal kayak racks that allow your kayak to lay flat on it's belly. They are easy to load and are lower profile when loaded so less wind resistance is generated. They can also accommodate the heavier, wider fishing kayaks if that applies now or in their future kayak purchases. The Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Heavy Kayaks # MPG461GS is a great example. J-style are popular but can also be more difficult to load and are less wind resistant with a higher...

  • Recommended Malone XtraLight LowMax trailer for Two Old Town Sportsman Fishing Kayaks
    Your Old Town Sportsman 136 kayak is 158 lbs, so for two of them I recommend the Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer # MAL25FR. This comes with the kayak bunks for 2 kayaks and has the crossbars with integrated d-rings. This has a per boat restriction of 25 lbs where the similar Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Heavy Kayaks - 13' Long - 800 lbs # MPG461GS has a per boat restriction of 150 lbs based on the capacity of the kayak carriers. This kayak trailer is rated for speeds up to 70 mph.

  • Recommendation for Two 90 lb Kayaks on 2018 Toyota Highlander
    For your 2018 Toyota Highlander, the two 90 lb kayaks will exceed the weight your roof can safely carry. If you were to only carry one you would be fine and the combination you referenced would work well but two does require a trailer as you stated. My recommendation is to use the Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Extra Heavy Boats - 13' Long - 800 lbs # MPG461B2 or the Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Heavy Kayaks - 13' Long - 800 lbs # MPG461GS. This gives you the strength you need...

  • Is there a Max Speed Rating for Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG461GS
    The Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG461GS doesn't have a speed limitation. However the 12 inch tires should not be run above 65 miles per hour. You could add different tires with a higher speed rating such as # TT48012C which are rated for 81 miles per hour and 990 pounds at 90 psi. But the tires would have to be purchased separately because we can't swap out the ones that come with it for different tires.

  • Towing With 2021 Toyota Corolla
    The owner's manual for your 2021 Corolla does state that it shouldn't be used for towing nor should a hitch be installed. I can't recommend anything that would contradict what the owner's manual states, but I can't see how installing a hitch like the Curt # C34UR and using it within its stated 200 lb tongue weight capacity for carrying two bikes could harm anything. As far as towing a small lightweight kayak trailer goes, something weighing 500 or so lbs loaded such as the Malone # MPG461GS...

If you're needing to carry both at the same time then you're going to need to use a watersport trailer as the standard weight capacity of a roof rack is 165 lbs.

    Taking a look at your Kayak model, it appears as though your 2 kayaks are 36" wide, totaling 72" in width. The Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with V-Style Carriers # MAL43FR only have 58" wide crossbars, which will be far undersized for your (2) Old Town Sportsman 120 PDL Kayaks.

    I recommend using the Malone MicroSport Trailer with V-Style Carriers # MPG461GS for carrying your kayaks.

  • Can I Mount Two Hullavators on 2019 Chevrolet Suburban?
    While we do have some roof rack bar and kayak carrier options, none of them are 76" long crossbars that you need to fit two # TH898 Hullavators on your roof. You would also need at least 188 lbs roof weight capacity for everything which is pretty hefty. We have other kayak carriers with load assist to some extent, but they all require a little more over the head lifting compared to the Thule Hullavator. For those looking for the dual Hullavator setup but don't have that rare vehicle that...
