Expert Answers about Kayak Trailer


  • Can Spare Be Carried on Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT
  • I attached a picture that shows where the spare part # MPG465 would mount on the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT that has a retractable tongue. The crossbar spread for this is between 44 and 63 inches normally which might get slightly reduced when carrying the spare, but in most cases there's no need for that much of a spread.

  • How Does Malone Installation Hardware for Hobie Style Carriers Work
  • You can use your Hobie carriers on your Malone MicroSport LowBed Trailer # MPG464-LB with the Malone Installation Hardware for Hobie Style Carriers # MPG5576-6. I have added a cut out of the instructions and linked them below but you just need to fasten the brackets to the Hobie cradles and then attach them to the crossbars with the plates so it's pretty simple. In regards to the 7 foot ShockStrap Ratchet Tie-Down Strap with Shock Absorber # 297-7RSBB (Qty 1) or # 297-7RSDB (Qty...

  • Should Yakima Rock and Roll Trailer Upgrade to Heavy Duty Shocks
  • While there isn't a life expectancy, per se, of the shocks on the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 66" # Y08106 and 78" # Y08107, upgrading to the HD shocks is absolutely a good idea if your gear weighs around 200 llbs and certainly anything above that. The Heavy Duty Shocks for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08110 do increase the capacity of your trailer from 250 lbs to 350 lbs so if you need that extra capacity, the HD shocks are what you'll need. That said, if you are just in the...

  • Will Two 30 Inch Wide Kayaks Fit on Lower Deck of Yakima EasyRider Trailer
  • I don't believe your two 30 inch wide kayaks will fit on the bottom deck of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 . I confirmed through my contact at Yakima that the width of the bottom deck is 54 inches inside to inside of the 2 inch diameter tubing that make up the frame. Because the bottom deck has a height of 21 inches, you would not be able to fit your 30 inch wide kayaks on their side, as you mentioned. You could, however, fit one on the bottom and a second or third...

  • Anti-Theft Lock Recommendations for Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129
  • I can definitely help come up with a way to make the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 as theft resistant as possible but I can't safely recommend you replace the hardware that secures the coupler or hinge to the trailer tongue with hitch locks of any kind. You have to use the included hardware otherwise the warranty of the trailer would be voided and you'd be potentially unsafe to yourself and other motorists. So for the latch of the coupler you could use a trigger latch...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier To Secure Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 14 Tow Deck Of Yakima EasyRider Y08139
  • To secure your Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 14 with 360 Drive Technology to the lower level of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 I recommend the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier # Y04091. The BigCatch is confirmed to fit the lower round bars, and its 150lb weight capacity will be perfect for your kayak. I included videos for both of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Comparing Yakima Rack and Roll vs Malone Microsport XT for Carrying Two Kayaks
  • Both the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 and Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT will work for you to carry your two Hobie kayaks, but I recommend the MicroSport XT because it is the better value of the two trailers. The biggest difference between the two trailers is that the Rack and Roll has independent suspension, while the MicroSportXT has a leaf spring suspension. This is going to give the Rack and Roll a bit of a better ride, but that alone doesn't make up for the gap...

  • Kayak Carrier Recommended for Old Town Heron Kayaks on Yakima Y08107 Rack and Roll Trailer
  • For a fairly economical way to transport your three kayaks on the # Y08107 Rack and Roll trailer, I'd recommend going with the Malone FoldAway # MAL38FR for two kayaks and the # MAL98FR for the third. I looked up your kayaks, and found that Old Town lists the weight of the solo as being about 40 lbs with a length of 9-1/2 feet and the tandems as being 60 lbs each with a length of 13-1/2 feet. The kayaks sizes and weights would be compatible with both the Rack and Roll trailer and the...

  • Differences between the MAL25FR and the MPG46B2
  • The Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer # MAL25FR and Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG461B2 are very similar as they are both built on the same platform. This allows them to both carry the same weight and size kayaks. The # MPG461B2 has a 30" height to the crossbar. The extra height allows for the spare tire to be moved back farther on the trailer to reduce tongue weight. You can also store additional gear below the crossbars such as your paddles and fishing poles. You can use the Fishing...

  • Locking Options for Malone MicroSport MPG462G2 Trailer for 4 Kayaks
  • The trailer doesn't include locks, which is typical, as trailers don't usually include them. The good news is that there are tons of locking options available, and usually using more than one locking option at a time will deter all but the most determined thief. The Malone MicroSport # MPG462G2 trailer uses a typical 2 inch channel tongue coupler. At a minimum, I'd use a coupler latch lock like part # e98890. I even use these while towing, to prevent the latch from coming open or...

In order to attach the kayaks, the Malone J-Pro2 Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG117MD (one set for each kayak) would be an excellent option. In order to attach the SUP's, I recommend the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier part # INA446 but you could get away with stacking them one on top of the other with the Malone SUP30 Surfboard and SUP Pads part # MPG312.

  • Can You Haul two 12-Foot Fishing Kayaks on the Malone # MAL25FR LowBed MicroSport Trailer?
  • You won't have any problem setting out for adventure with your fishing kayaks on the Malone # MAL25FR LowBed MicroSport Trailer! Your two kayaks weigh 179 pounds total and the LowBed MicroSport has a 800 pound capacity so you can pack on even more. Each of your kayaks are 33.75" which will both fit easily on the 78" wide crossbars. Also, the LowBed MicroSport supports boats up to 20' and since yours are less than 13', this too will be no problem. You will be able to tie down your kayaks...

  • How To Carry 2 Kayaks And 2-3 Bikes On A Malone Trailer
  • You should be able to fit a single bike in the middle of the 2 kayak cradles on the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer # MAL43FR, but I do not see how you could mount 2 or 3 bikes onto it along with the 2 kayaks. Your best option is to go with Malone LowMax XtraLight Trailer for 2 Fat Bikes and 2 Kayaks - Detachable Tongue - 600 lbs # MAL75FR. This is already setup to safely hold 2 kayaks and 2 bikes. If you wanted to add a 3rd bike like you mentioned you might want to do, then you can adjust...

  • Recommended Spare Tire and Carrier For CE Smith Multi Sport Boat and Kayak Trailer
  • For the CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat and Kayak Trailer # CE48870 I recommend the Loadstar 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Galvanized Wheel # AM30670. The galvanized wheel will match what comes on the trailer. The spare tire carrier will depend on how you would prefer to mount the spare. A CE Smith Spare Tire Carrier # CE22007Z-11050-2 will allow you to mount the tire horizontally on top of the trailer. This would work best near the a-frame of the trailer to support the tire....

  • Yes, you can change the wheels on the CE Smith Multi Sport Boat and Kayak Trailer # CE48810 from 8" to 12". This would give you a trailer like the CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat and Kayak Trailer # CE48870. To complete the conversion you will need 2 of the Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Galvanized Wheel # AM30590 and 2 of the CE Smith Single Axle Trailer Fenders # CE17701G to move to the larger tires.

  • Kayak Saddle Recommendation For CE Smith Boat And Kayak Trailer Carrying 2021 Hobie Outback Kayak
  • Yes, you can use kayak saddles with the CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat and Kayak Trailer # CE48870. I recommend the Thule DockGrip Kayak and SUP Carrier with Tie-Downs # TH895. These saddles will conform to the shape of your 2021 Hobie Outback for a more secure and stable mount. The flexible rubber pads will protect your kayak from damage and hold it place. I would mount the saddles to the bunks as this will allow you to carry the kayak higher. I feel this is important with your...

The BigCatch has a 150 lb weight capacity and works with very larger crossbars so you will not have any issues. I will however say that most customers just use ratchet straps and pads to secure a kayak to the crossbars on the lower...

  • What Bike Rack Can I Install On My Malone MicroSport Trailer To Transport 2 Bikes And 2 Kayaks

Your Malone MicroSport Trailer with J-Style Carriers for 4 Kayaks - 800 lbs, part # MPG462G2, has an adjustable crossbar spread from 44" to 63". I do have an option that would work with your Malone MicroSport Trailer.

The best kayak carrier for your application is the Malone MegaWing Fishing Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG207 because you will be able to easily load up each kayak and it has a weight capacity of 150 lbs so it should be able to handle the size of your kayaks just fine. Obviously you'll need 1 set of this carrier per kayak. We...

  • Malone Kayak Trailers Capable Of Carrying 2 Kayaks Each 34" Wide
  • The crossbars on the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with V-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks # MAL43FR are 58" long. While the 2 kayaks you are wanting to carry will each be 34" wide that will place the Kayak approximately 6" past the edge of the crossbar on each side with a couple inches between them in the middle. This would be acceptable as it does not hang over the sides that far and the carriers will still be able to be placed where they can support the kayak while driving. We also have...

The tongue is 90" long so removing it would leave you with 5'9" of trailer sitting up for storage. The wheel size isn't going to make a difference in the trailer performance when comparing the two.

This trailer will have no problem holding your 10'6" long x 36" wide kayaks. Based on the dimensions you gave me, it looks like you have the powered version that weighs 121 lbs. The # MPG461B2 has a maximum boat weight capacity of 225 lbs per boat so that is also more than enough. It uses 7' bunks to hold your kayaks and also comes with a full size spare....

The trailer is very light at just 145lbs and can easily be moved around during hookup. The leaf spring suspension should give you a nice ride without the need of any additional enhancement.

  • Can Different Crossbars Be Used On Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer

  • Spare Tire Carrier Retractable Tongue and Kickstand for Malone MicroSport Trailer

The retactable tongue kit that fits this trailer is the # MPG494 which decreases the length of the trailer by 61 inches. And then for the "kickstand" we also have the Trailer Tongue Kickstand for Malone Trailers # MPG467 which is basically just a swivel trailer jack. All of these can be installed at the same time as well.

Unfortunately, with the approximate 125 pound maximum weight capacity of your roof, you will not be able to adhere to the roof rack weight limit since it exceeds the roof capacity. With that being said, the safest way to transport your sailboat is by trailer. I recommend the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 66" # Y08106. With the Rack and Roll trailer, you will have...

This will work on a spare tire carrier with as small as a 1/2" wide span, so it will work well with the U-bolt style spare tire mount and the best part is that it keys to your Ford vehicle key so you don't have to worry about fumbling through a bunch of different keys.

  • What Size Boats Require the Tongue Extension for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
  • I do recommend adding the Tongue Extension Kit for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08109 when carrying boats over 16 feet long with a Yakima Rack N Roll Trailer # Y08107 since it will prevent the boats from contacting the back of your vehicle while turning. It likely isn't going to be completely necessary since it's only about 6 inches of difference and you could likely just slide the boats back 6 inches, but adding the extension ensures there's no contact with the vehicle when making a turn.

  • CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat and Kayak Trailer Weight Capacity
  • The CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat and Kayak Trailer w/ Bunks - 12" Wheels - 14' Boat - 800 lbs item # CE48870 will work great for hauling your Vibe Yellowfin kayak. There is no way to change tires to increase the weight capacity. I recommend finding a way to remove 5 lbs when you need to haul your Sea-doo GTX 230. Making sure the jet ski's fuel tank is empty would be the easiest solution.

  • Can Kayak Carrier be Installed on Crossmembers of Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
  • You might be able to get your kayak saddles to fit on the crossmembers of the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08106 but I wasn't able to confirm the dimensions with my contact at Yakima. Worst case scenario is that if they don't fit the crossmembers you can just use the round bars that come with the trailer. My contact at Yakima said that the crossmembers weren't designed to have the kayak carriers installed on them so he advised only using the round bars to secure your kayak carrier.

  • The crossbars of the Malone # MAL25FR LowBed MicroSport trailer are 78 inches in length. From what I found online, the Hobie Mirage Outback kayaks are about 34 inches wide which would provide plenty of room as the bunks are width adjustable and can be moved side to side as needed. The 100 lb weight of each fully rigged kayak would fall well within the capacity of the trailer, so there'd be no worries there. As for rollers, you could use bunk rollers like # CE27700 which could be mounted...

  • Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer MPG464-LB Ability To Carry Curvy Kayak On Their Side
  • The fenders on the Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer # MPG464-LB are going to sit almost flush with crossbars. Do remember that the height of the Malone FoldAway-J Kayak Carrier # MAL98FR will give you over the top of the crossbars and the fact that the rear crossbar is so close to the fender will reduce the chance of your kayak hitting the fenders. The crossbar spread is also adjustable from 44" to 63" allowing you to be more on the center of the kayak so it will not sit as low on the trailer.

  • What is the Difference Between Crossbar Length and Spread
  • I can see why this might be confusing. The crossbar length is the length of the actual crossbars and thus the usable space that you have to mount carriers on the bars. The crossbar spread is the distance the crossbars are apart on the trailer; this is important since some accessories require a maximum or minimum crossbar spread for the distance the mounts are apart or for weight distribution purposes. The Malone MicroSport Trailer - 78" Crossbars - 800 lbs # MPG460G does have 78" long...

  • Best Malone Trailer For Making Hauling 4 Kayaks EASY!
  • That's a great plan! I am happy to help and my first suggestion would be to just stick with the MicroSport Trailer with J-Style Kayak Carriers # MPG462G2 just because it can already hold 4 kayaks. Piecing these trailers together I have found to be a little more work with not the best possible result. If you guys are set on the two tier idea than I would highly recommend getting the Malone MegaSport 2 Tier Trailer for Heavy Boats - 2 Storage Containers # MPG550-TH for many different...

  • Boat Trailer for 15 foot Inflatable Boat Malone and CE Smith Comparison
  • For a 15 foot boat the best trailer option is the CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat # CE48870 which is the best for your size boat due to the bunk length, is galvanized like you are wanting and could easily be loaded and unloaded like you are wanting. I like this over the Malone because it has lower bunks which means you wouldn't have to back the trailer as far into the water or lift the boat as high.

  • Availability of Hitch Extender for Smaller Roof Rack Style Trailer
  • You could probably make one with a fold away hinge but CE Smith does not offer a hitch extender for the CE Smith Multi Sport Boat and Kayak Trailer w/ Bunks # CE48810. Yakima makes tongue extenders for their Rack and Roll trailer # Y08106 with the # Y08109 which adds 3 feet to the tongue of the 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.

  • Do I Need to Mount the Boats on the Crossbars of my Malone MegaSport Trailer
  • I suppose you could use the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer - 86" Crossbars - 1000 lbs # MPG535 in this manner, but I don't necessarily recommend it since it's just going to scratch up the boats and might potentially obscure the lights and license plate. Typically we recommend using a kayak carrier on the crossbars to carry your boats since this is the safest and provides the easiest loading and unloading option for your kayaks; a good low cost option to protect the hulls of the boats...

  • Picking Out Transom Saver for CE Smith Multi Sport Plug Boat

We have the # 315-FXH which is 27-36 inches long, part # 315-FXI which is 31-40 inches long, as well as the part # 315-FXK which is 25-36 inches long. You'd need to measure your setup to see which range would fit the best.

  • How Much Does the CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat Weigh and Is It Easy To Move
  • The CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat part # CE48870 weighs around 475 lbs. That said, you will only be lifting the tongue of the trailer which will be around 40 lbs even with the kayak attached. The only thing I can say is that it is a bit awkward to move so the Rack'Em Trailer Dolly part # RA20 would certainly help.

As long as your jon boat and motor don't weigh more than 800-lbs, the CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat and Kayak Trailer w/ Bunks - 12" Wheels - 14' Boat - 800 lbs # CE48870 will work perfectly for you. This isn't just designed for kayaks, but can also be used on jon boats or personal watercrafts as long as they're under 14 feet long, so it's really versatile. I've linked a short review video of this trailer for you to have a look at, as well.

  • E-Bike Racks for Malone MegaSport 2 Tier Trailer MPG550-TU
  • There are several great options to transport both e-bikes and kayaks. The Malone MegaSport 2 Tier Trailer # MPG550-TU is a great option to transport your kayaks with space for hauling additional cargo, but it doesn't have any room to haul e-bikes at the same time. To do this, I recommend the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 which allows you to carry both the kayaks on the bottom racks and the e-bikes up top. The heavy-duty, adjustable crossbars along the top let you attach...

  • Life Span of Tires on Yakima Easy Rider Rack and Roll Multi-Tier

I think you're likely going to be on the lower end of that spectrum because of the size of the tire, but as long as the tires aren't damaged along the way you've got nothing to worry about. The Spare Tire # Y08121 you picked up is a great add on, so that's smart thinking on...

On the bright side this means that you'll be able to transport more equipment or another boat if the need arises, or you can simply cut the bars so that they are able to work for your application.

  • Can Larger Tires Be Put on CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat Trailer

We recommend at least 4 inches between the fender and the top of the tire for suspension travel and at least 2 inches between the tire's side wall and frame.

  • Size of Crossbars on Malone MicroSportXT Trailer
  • While I wasn't able to find the dimensions of what the Marco saddles fit, I can tell you that Thule square crossbars are a different size than the crossbars on the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT. The MicroSportXT has crossbars that measure 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" square, while the Thule square bars (which are really rectangles) measure 1-1/4" wide x 7/8" tall. So if your Marco saddles are able to accommodate the slightly larger height, they will work on the square crossbars of the Malone...

If they are not going to fit next to each other on their back then you could look into adding JPro2 Kayak Carriers # MPG117MD.

  • Can I Carry 4 Kayaks on Malone MicroSport Trailer?

With that being said, the crossbars that are included on the trailer will allow you to use your Thule Hull-A-Port XT TH848 spread out to acommodate the 4 kayaks you're wanting to carry without any issue.

An inch or two in either direction would work, but the seven inch difference you have would make the trailer susceptible to fishtailing due to the uneven tongue height.
