Expert Answers about Trailers


  • 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 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...

  • Spare Tire Mount for Demco Kar Kaddy SS
  • The Spare Tire Mount for Demco Kar Kaddy Tow Dollies # DMRKSTM will work well with your tow dolly and the spare tire is ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 14" White Mod Wheel for Demco Kar Kaddy Tow Dolly # DM5965. If you want the replacement wheel and tire, use # DM11574 with # AM10234.

  • 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...

  • 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. This is the largest cargo basket that Yakima offers and will fit perfectly as you can see in the attached photo.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Tow Dolly and Scooter Carrier for 2014 Chevy Volt and Vespa Scooter
  • I took a look at the owner's manual of a 2014 Chevy Volt and it is able to be towed via dolly so what I highly recommend for a dolly is the Demco Kar Kaddy 3 Tow Dolly with Disc Brakes - Tilt Bed Frame # DM9713046 or Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly with Disc Brakes - Foldable # DM9713045 because of how much easier they are to use than other dollies. 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...

  • 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...

  • 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

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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

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.

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...

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

Instead, which I highly recommend is an option from CE Smith: - CE Smith Multi Sport Boat and Kayak Trailer with Bunks # CE48810 When I looked up your boat it was just 130 lbs and 48 inches wide so it is going to be a perfect fit for this trailer and something you'll be able to easily...

  • How To Tell If the Steering Stabilizer Shock Is Bad On a Demco Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly
  • If the steering stabilizer shock on your Demco Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly part # DM9713045 has gone bad then the wheels on the tow dolly may shimmy a bit while driving down the road or you will see oil around where the shock mounts as this would point to signs of the seal being blown. The other option is just to remove the shock and make sure it rebounds correctly. If you do need to replace this then we have the Replacement Steering Stabilizer Shock for Demco Kar Kaddy Tow Dolly part # DM01729-30....

  • How To Secure A Kayak On the Lower Level Of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker 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...

  • 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 is the Best Way to Tow My 2007 Honda Civic?
  • I have a towing solution for you. From my research on your 2007 Honda Civic, I confirmed with the Honda owner's manual that you should not flat-tow your vehicle. The manual states that a 20007 Civic needs to be towed with the front wheels elevated or with all wheels completely off the ground on a flat-bed truck. With that being said, it is always a good idea to abide by the manufacturers recommendations. With this information, it is safest to transport your vehicle using a tow dolly....

You will probably need to drill through the fender of the tow dolly or the frame to install it. The bracket does include a LED light to light up the license plate so you would need to splice the black wire into the running light circuit and ground the...

  • Recommended Lock for Spare Tire on Malone MicroSport Kayak Trailer
  • In order to secure your Spare Tire for Malone MicroSport Trailer - 12" Galvanized - Locking Attachment # MPG465 I recommend using the BOLT Trailer Coupler Lock - 1/2" to 3-3/8" Span - Codes to Ford Key # BL7025285. 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.

  • Towing Capacity of 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser
  • You are correct that passenger and cargo weight inside a vehicle does reduce the trailer weight it can tow. A vehicle like your PT that is intended primarily to transport people may not have much trailer towing capacity if you have a full load of passengers and cargo. I checked the online owner's manual for the 2005 PT Cruiser and the manual states (on page 242) the maximum trailer weight is 1000-lbs when the total weight of passengers, luggage and cargo is no more than 865-lbs. This...

  • Can 2016 Chrysler 200C Be Towed Using Demco DM9713045 Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly
  • According to the owner's manual, your 2016 Chrysler 200 can be dolly towed with the front wheels off the ground as long as its a FWD model. AWD (all wheel drive) models need to be towed on a trailer to prevent damaging the transmission. The # DM9713045 can indeed be shipped to your residence, but due to its heavy weight it's shipped via a freight company rather than UPS. If you click the provided link, you can see a product demonstration video for the Demco Kar Kaddy SS.

  • Replacement Wheel Strap and Steering Wheel Strap for 2021 Elantra Hybrid on Demco Kar Kaddy SS
  • In order to get the hitch ball down to the height you are looking for to use your Demco Kar Kaddy SS # DM9713045 you are going to need a ball mount with an 8" drop. I recommend the Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 7" Rise, 8" Drop - 9-3/8" Long - 12,000 lbs # C45448. You will also need the # A-90 for a 2" ball. From what I found about the tires that come with a 2021 Hyundai Elantra Hybrid, you either have a 205/55R16 tire or a 225/45R17 tire. The correct wheel strap for either of this...

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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

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...
