Recommended Kayak Trailer for Old Town Sportsman 106 Kayaks


Hi do you have a trailer that you would recommend for my old town sportsman kayaks they are 10‘6“ long and 36 inches wide and can This trailer be towed by a Hyundai Tucson thank you any help would be appreciated

I recommend the Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Heavy Kayaks - 7' Bunks - 800 lbs # MPG461B2 for your Old Town Sportsman 106 Kayaks. This trailer will have no problem holding your 10'6" long x 36" wide kayaks. Based on the dimensions you gave me, it looks like you have the powered version that weighs 121 lbs. The # MPG461B2 has a maximum boat weight capacity of 225 lbs per boat so that is also more than enough.

It uses 7' bunks to hold your kayaks and also comes with a full size spare. The trailer itself weighs 217 lbs. The MicroSport has a galvanized steel construction and uses submersible LED lights. This trailer has a limited 5-year warranty and is made in the USA.

If I'm wrong about the kayak weight and you have the 77 lb kayaks, you could use the # MPG461GU you were looking at with a maximum boat capacity of 90 lbs per boat. The only real difference between the two would be the style of carrier on the trailer resulting in the difference in capacity.

If you need your 2017 Hyundai Tucson set up for towing I recommend the Curt # C13240 for a hitch, Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118501 for wiring, and the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900 for a ball mount.

I have attached some review and installation videos for your reference.
