  • 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 to Carry Spare Tire on Apogee Adapt-X 500 Folding Utility Trailer
  • The Apogee Adapt-X 500 folding utility trailer, like # AT74FR does not include a spare tire holder. You can certainly add one, but the problem lies in finding a spot to install a spare tire without interfering with the trailer's ability to fold. The best spot to mount a spare tire carrier would be the front wall of the trailer bed, above the trailer tongue as shown in the provided photo. I'd recommend using the Fulton Hi-Mount tire carrier, part # FSTC1000301. The carrier provides enough...

  • Can I Carry 4 Kayaks on Malone MicroSport Trailer?
  • I'll start off by saying that it isn't recommended that you add longer crossbars to the Malone MicroSport XT Trailer # MPG460XT because adding too much weight outside of the wheels will effect the stability of the trailer when cornering. 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. However, I believe I have a better solution that...

  • Kayak Rack For Apogee Adapt-X 500 & 700 Trailers
  • If you have the Apogee Adapt-X Folding Utility Trailer # AT74FR you can get this Kayak Rack # AT48FR. If you have the Adapt-X 700 # AT24FR you can get this kayak rack # AT68FR. I suggest getting four of these kayak pads # MPG314, two for the front and two for the back. Here are some straps # E98876-4. You will want at least 6 to tie down 2 kayaks. One for the bow, one for the stern and one for the middle of the kayak to secure it to the bar. We only have kayak racks for the 500 and 700 model.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Setup for Towing 2016 Kia Soul Behind a Class A Motorhome
  • The parts you'll need to tow your 2016 Kia Soul behind your Class A motorhome depend on whether you have a manual or automatic transmission. If you have an automatic transmission, you will need to use a tow dolly as models with an automatic transmission cannot be flat towed. I recommend the Demco Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly # DM9713045. This is one of the best tow dollies on the market, with tons of great features like disc brakes and a folding design for easy storage. If you have a manual...

  • Can You Haul two 12-Foot Fishing Kayaks on the Malone # MAL95FR XtraLight Trailer?
  • You won't have any problem setting out for adventure with your fishing kayaks on the Malone # MAL95FR XtraLight Trailer! Your two kayaks weigh 179 pounds total and the XtraLight has a 600 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 XtraLight supports boats up to 17' and since yours are less than 13', this too will be no problem. You will be able to tie down your kayaks to the crossbars. I...

  • Solution for Transporting a 14 Foot Kayak, Two Bikes, and a Vespa Behind Winnebago
  • The best option we have available to transport your mentioned cargo is the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129. This is a lightweight aluminum trailer with enormous versatility due to its two storage levels, heavy-duty crossbars, and built-in tie down points. You could secure your 14 foot kayak on the bottom level and your two bikes on the top level using a couple of the excellent Yakima FrontLoader Carriers # Y02103.

  • Best Cargo Basket For Lower Level On Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer
  • The best cargo basket we have to use on the lower level of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer part # Y08129 is the Yakima MegaWarrior Extra Large Roof Rack Cargo Basket part # Y07080-82.

  • Can Larger Wheels Be Fitted To the Apogee Optimax Folding Utility Trailer
  • The Apogee Optimax Folding Utility Trailer part # AT54FR is offered with 12" wheels. I cannot recommend using larger wheels as the fender clearance is fixed and limited so if larger wheels is what you're after you'd have to go up a trailer size, the Apogee Adapt-X 700 Folding Utility Trailer part # AT24FR comes with 14" wheels.

  • What Makes the Yakima Rack and Roll Different From the Malone MicroSport Trailers
  • The Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer part # Y08107 is designed primarily for lighter loads such as watersport accessories and cargo. These lighter loads require a more sophisticated suspension i.e. coilovers in order to ride smoothly. If you just need to carry more weight and don't mind a rougher ride then you can go with the Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG460G which has an 800 lbs weight capacity and utilizes a less sophisticated leaf spring suspension system that can carry more yes but...

  • Best Trailer and Attachments To Carry Two Kayaks and Two SUPs

In order to attach the kayaks, the Malone J-Pro Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG116MD (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.

  • Tow Dolly and Scooter Carrier for 2014 Chevy Volt and Vespa Scooter

The Kar Kaddy 3 tilts down and the Kar Kaddy SS has a ramp so you can simply drive up the dolly and secure your car on it. These dollies also have a...

The photo has not yet been updated to show the bar change but rest assured you will receive these new bars with your purchase of the trailer.

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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • How to Carry Two to Four Kayaks and Two Bikes with a MicroSport Kayak Trailer

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.

  • 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...

  • What All Is Needed To Use the Demco Kar Kaddy X Tow Dolly
  • The Demco Kar Kaddy X Tow Dolly part # DM9713093 has surge brakes so it only uses a 4-way trailer connector. Therefore, it would just simply plug into the motorhome without any additional components needed. The 4-way will transmit the lights from the motorhome to the tow dolly. The brakes are mechanical so there is no additional wiring or brake controllers needed.

  • What All Do I Need To Haul An ATV Inside The Apogee Utility Trailer With My 2020 Lexus RX 450?
  • The Apogee Adapt-X 500 Folding Utility Trailer # AT74FR will have a receiver height of 16" tall. I do not have an exact measurement for your specific hitch height on your 2020 Lexus RX 450 with the factory hitch. Our aftermarket hitches ended up with a hitch height of 17-1/2" which if you have the same would result in a 2" Drop Ball Mount # DT49MR. This will include a 2" ball and receiver pin to connect the trailer. If you plan on using different vehicles and hauling other trailers...

  • Which Hitch Components Do I Need To Pull Malone EcoLight Trailer With 2017 Subaru Outback?
  • The Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer - 58" Crossbars # MAL53FR requires a 2" ball and also measures 16" from the coupler to the ground. I was not able to see any photos of your setup, but it does sound like your current ball mount will work well. Since you measured about 16-1/2" from the ball mount to the ground, this will provide for a level trailer. You measured 15/16" on the ball mount hole which is likely made to work with balls that have a 1" shank. For this, I recommend going with...

  • Can Different Crossbars Be Used On Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
  • I have another option for you but unfortunately the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 cannot accept any other style of crossbar, as it was only designed to use the round Yakima crossbars. Instead I recommend the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 which uses the Yakima HD Crossbars, has a upper and lower level allowing you to store kayaks or canoes on either level. The cool part about the two levels is that you can store the kayaks or canoes on the lower level and...

  • Best Malone LowMax Trailer For Heavy Kayaks
  • Since you're planning on hauling extremely heavy kayaks, I recommend getting the bunk kit LowMax Trailer # MAL95FR and not the V- Style Kit # MAL35FR because of the weight. The bunk style is SUPER solid and does well with heavier kayaks. I don't think that there will be issues with the trailer being lop sided. If you're concerned with that, you can move the bunks closer to the center of the trailers. The closest to the center of the trailer the better. This hitch # C11282 will work with...

  • What is Coupler Height of Apogee Optimax Folding Utility Trailer AT54FR
  • The coupler/hitch height of the Apogee Folding Utility Trailer part # AT54FR is 16". This is the distance from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler while level. In order to find the correct ball mount you'd simply need to subtract this from the distance from the ground to the top inside edge of the trailer hitch. I have attached our ball mount selection below as well.

  • Can Apogee Adapt-X 700 Folding Utility Trailer AT24FR Be Used To Make A Tear Camper?
  • You could absolutely convert the Apogee Adapt-X 700 Folding Utility Trailer - 6' Wide x 12' Long - 2,712 lbs # AT24FR you were looking at into a Tear camper trailer, but there is not a kit available or currently being developed to do this so it would need to be custom built. The # AT24FR weighs in at just under 700lbs leaving it with just over a 2000lb payload capacity so you will have no issues with the additional weight. I included a video of the # AT24FR for you to take a look at.

  • Max Boat Width of the Malone XtraLight LowMax Trailer for 2 Kayaks part # MAL95FR
  • The Malone XtraLight LowMax Trailer for 2 Kayaks part # MAL95FR will be more than capable of hauling your two Pro Angler 14 kayaks. The crossbar length is 78" which will give you plenty of room. The bunks are also adjustable so you will be able to fine tune it to the exact fit you want. If your kayaks were bigger they could even overhang the side of the crossbars and still be able to strap them down properly and get to your destination safely.

  • 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...

  • How Does The Apogee Optimax Folding Utility Trailer AT54FR Roll When Folded Up?
  • The only way for the Apogee Optimax Folding Utility Trailer - 4' Wide x 8' Long # AT54FR is the direction the tires are pointing. With that said since it is narrow enough when folded to fit through your gate, you and a friend could pick up on each end to get it through the gate, or you could get a few wheel dollies from a local hard ware store to place under each tire so you can drag it through the gate the narrow way. I included a video of the # AT54FR for you to take a look at.

The Apogee Storage Cover # AT57FR is designed specifically for the Optimax # AT54FR and will protect it from the elements if stored outside, and dust or other gunk if stored in a garage or shed.

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.

However, you might need to remove the kayaks before retracting the tongue to be able to disconnect the wiring harness and access the tongue bracket on the back end to keep it secure. Also, you won't be able to store the trailer vertically with the kayaks attached. Check out the video linked below for more details on this product.
