Lightweight Trailer is Perfect for Hauling Kayaks, Canoes, or Surfboards

MPG461KB In Use

This lightweight trailer comes with post-style carriers so you can transport 4 kayaks, canoes, or surfboards. 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.


MPG313 rack pads

The stacker-style carrier has soft and durable 18" pads that prevent scuffs, scratches, or damage to your boat during transport. The pads help stabilize your boat while traveling on uneven or rough terrain.They have polyester covers that are water-resistant and UV-resistant.


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.

Review from a similar MicroSport in Kayak Trailer


This is a great trailer for the price. I 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 etrailer.com were in constant contact and very supportive throughout the entire process and all the paperwork for registration came within a week .


Comments
It has been a busy season. I love having the ability to change the racks easily as we have 3 kayaks, 1 canoe and a sup and are always changing as moods change and different people visit.

Review from a similar MicroSport in Kayak Trailer


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 etrailer.com 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.


Comments
Im still completely satisfied with the Malone trailer. It hauls well on the highway and is easy to maneuver by hand into tight spaces, even with two fishing kayaks loaded. Ive been asked several times at the launch where I got it and Ive sent them directly to etrailer.

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.


Comments
The trailer is everything I had hoped it would be. I mostly use it for transporting kayaks locally for my boat building business. I have not taken it on a long trip yet but my little car pulls it with ease.

Review from a similar MicroSport in Kayak 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.


Comments
I have used the trailer for over a year now, and I still love it. I’ve had absolutely ZERO problems with it. I store it outside, so it’s always exposed to the weather. But the only wear and tear I see is in the foam pads of the cradles which are not part of the trailer kit and which are probably caused by kayak installation and removals. I can load and unload the kayak in seconds. I am very happy I bought this trailer. Other people are quick to complement it, which allows me to boast that I put it together from a kit! Note: I just saw my initial review and noticed that the spell control software substituted “institutions” for “instructions “. Sorry about that.

I love my Malone MicroSport Trailer! It was shipped carefully in four easy to handle boxes, came complete and undamaged, and the assembly instructions were clear. I assembled it in one afternoon. I keep my two Perception 12' kayaks and two mountain bikes on the racks, so I am ready to hitch and go whenever I feel the urge. I recommend this product highly, without reservation.

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.

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.

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.

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.


Comments
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.

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.

Great trailer. We can haul both our bikes and kayaks effortlessly. The trailer pulls fantastic and the mounting and dismounting of both bikes and kayaks is easy. Assembly was pretty straight forward from the instructions. I would recommend this trailer if you need a bike and kayak hauling solution.

Review from a similar MicroSport in Kayak Trailer


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.

Had the trailer for year now -- but has been in water storage along with my kayaks. I worried about spending so much but it is so useful, glad I did. Much easier to put kayaks on a trailer vs. hoisting upon on a roof. And it is a quality product -- well made.

Bought this trailer because I was tired of getting on a ladder to put on the Yakima racks onto my Tahoe every time I wanted to take my Carolina Perception kayaks out for a cruise. Checked out eTrailer and saw this Malone MicroSport trailer and bought it. My wife and I had very few issues assembling it in about four hours (though strongly recommend you invest in a 9/16" gear wrench to make it really easy to tighten the many nuts). It's so easy to load the kayaks, strap them down and go. Wish I'd bought this trailer a long time ago. Afterwards, I decided the purchase the storage bin and jack stand to complete the setup!

Review from a similar MicroSport in Kayak Trailer


The packaging left a little to be desired, so some pieces arrived dented. My sister and I assembled this in a few hours. I had to take some links off of the safety chains to avoid dragging. To install the Malone trunk, you have to drill holes in the trailer...why doesn't the trailer come pre-drilled with these? It already has numerous pre-drilled holes in it, some of which are not used...so why not have these holes for the trunk brackets pre-drilled? I removed the triangular skid off of the tongue of the trailer, once I saw how low it hung, which could be a problem. I then installed the jack-stand with the wheel, which was the best solution, trust me, but the jack-stand handle is an issue (see my review for it). I also added some DOT speced reflective tape for safety, after taking off the Malone decals. This is a nice trailer, but it is definitely overpriced for what you get. You can see in the pic that I have not yet flipped the ball hitch from the 2-3/4" drop side to the 3/4" rise, which I eventually did for the clearance. As always, thanks William B, for your help. You're the greatest.

  • Choosing 4-Pole Trailer Wiring Harness for 2021 Toyota Sienna
    For your 2021 Toyota Sienna, I'd highly recommend going with a plug-and-play option, such as the Tekonsha # TK69FR which would work perfectly with no cutting or splicing necessary. As far as a mounting bracket, you really won't need one as the manufacturer recommends leaving the 4 pole connector in the cargo area of the vehicle when it's not being used. This protects it from damage and from the elements. When you need the connector, you can simply run it out the rear hatch (keeping it...

They also have padding to protect the kayaks for scratches. If you only need to carry two kayaks, simply load them onto the outside carriers for the easiest install.
