Recommended Folding Tongue Kayak Carrier Trailer


Will the bunk kit and hinged storage box fit this trailer? Do any of the other trailers have a two pice tongue and can be stored upright? With the bunk kit for my 15.7foot x 30 Jackson Kraken allow for Yakima Bowdown racks on each side? Thanks!


Expert Reply:

I'll start off by saying that the only trailer with a folding tongue is the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer - 14-1/2' Long - 78" HD Crossbars - 500 lbs # Y08129, which is 14 feet long and has a capacity of 500-lbs. The issue you are likely going to have going with this trailer is that it will not allow you to mount the Plastic Storage Box # MPG536, which is only designed to be mounted on trailers with A-frames; it can also be mounted on either the front or behind the front axle of the Malone MicroSport # MPG535.

When it comes to the carriers, the etrailer J-Style Kayak Carrier - Folding - Universal Mount # e98878 takes up roughly 20" of bar space, so you'll have enough room on the 78" bars of the MicroSport to leave approximately 36" to set up the Bunk Kit # MPG561 -which can be added to the Xtra-Light trailer as well as the MegaSport. The Bow Down will also fit on the crossbars of any of the above mentioned trailers without issue.
