Best Kayak Trailer for 4 Kayaks


I have one kayak thats 156inch and the 3 more under 13. What trailer would you recommend? Would the Malone xtralight work or do I need the Microsoft?


Expert Reply:

I recommend using the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with Post Style Carrier for 4 Kayaks # MAL63FR because it allows you to carry all 4 kayaks where the MicroSport Trailer # MPG461GU is setup for 2 kayaks. The XtraLight trailer has a 275-lbs total capacity, so as long as your kayaks don't weigh more than that combined it would be a good choice to carry all your boats. The XtraLight is designed for use with a 2" hitch ball and comes with a 4 way trailer connector.

If you need the added weight capacity for all 4 boats, the MicroSport will be the better solution, but you will need to remove the integrated Malone SaddleUp Pro Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # MPG110MD and secure the boats directly to the crossbars. You could also use the Thule Stacker # TH830 to keep your boats separated and stand them up on their sides. The Stacker comes with 1 Pair of ratcheting tie downs, 2 straps, and buckle protectors included to allow you to secure the boats to the trailer.

If you don't already have a ball mount and hitch ball, the Curt # C45036 comes with a ball mount and 2" hitch ball to give you everything you need to tow a trailer.
