Will J-Style Kayak Carriers Fit the Bars on Malone EcoLight Trailer # MAL53FR


I have a 2014 Subaru Forester that I carry 2- 12ft and 1- 10ft kayaks on using the Rola Roof rack that I just purchased from you. I have a double mount and single J kayak mount that I use. I was thinking of getting this trailer and mounting my carriers on it to carry them. It looks like it would work, but wanted your opinion. Getting the kayaks up on my roof is a little hard due to a injury. Thanks,

Yes, your J-Style carriers will fit on the crossbars on the Malone EcoLight Trailer - 58" Crossbars - 14' Long - 400 lbs Item # MAL53FR. So no worries! I have linked a video review below of this trailer for you.

If your 2014 Subaru Forester does not already have a trailer hitch I recommend Curt trailer hitch # C12100 which will have more than enough capacity for the loaded trailer. For this hitch use ball mount # C45519. You will also need 2 inch ball # C40018.

And for trailer wiring you can use T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector Item # 118467 to add a 4-Way flat connector to the rear of the vehicle.
