Review of the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Malone MicroSport XT Trailer with a retractable tongue, part number MPG460XT. The Malone MicroSport XT Trailer can be delivered right to your door. It's perfect for hauling your recreational gear to campsite, beach, sandbar or trails. As you can see, we got a kayak and paddle board loaded up, but it's also going to work out great for bike racks, cargo boxes, and cargo baskets. It has a 75 inch long tongue. This is going to give us more clearance when making those corners, and it'll prevent anything coming in contact with our vehicle.

So it'll be especially great for those elongated kayaks, or any other elongated gear we might have with us.It's about 13 feet long, and 65 inches wide. With our gear removed, you can see our square bars. These are what make our trailers 65 inches wide. They are plastic coated, so we don't have to worry about them harming or scratching our gear. They also feature raised grooves on top for grip.

This is what's going to prevent our accessories from shifting along the bar.The rear crossbar is fixed, however the front one is adjustable along the a-frame. This gives you the adjustability between 44 and 63 inches. The advantage to this is being able to customize it to your load.It features 12 inch aluminum wheels with diamond plate fenders for style. It has a solid axle with a leaf spring suspension, and has a max speed rating of 70 miles an hour.It's set up to work with your two inch ball. It includes safety chains, and it's fully wired to work with your four pole connection.

This is going to give you your running lights, your turn signals, and your brake lights. It also features amber and red side marker lights.The frame is made out of a marine grade galvanized steel construction, and only weighs 195 pounds unloaded. It includes a license plate bracket, and the title is included. That way you can remain legal.The skid plate protects our coupler when it's uncoupled, and the coupler handle makes an easy maneuver, and attach and detach from our ball. It uses a trigger style latch.

It's easy to use. It even features a hole so you can pass a lock through for more security.If you're apprehensive about assembling the trailer, while it is time consuming, it's pretty straight forward. When it comes to the wiring, it's even easier. There's no cutting or splicing, it's color coded, and it uses bullet connectors.When you're all done using your trailer, one of its best features is, it has a retractable tongue. This makes storing it a lot easier. How it works is, you'll remove the panning clip here. You'll need to slightly pick up on the tongue to pull it out. From there, you'll want to make sure that your harness is disconnected just behind the tongue, then what I like to do is push trailer up against the wall until it makes contact with the rubber bumpers, that way we can easily push our tongue without the trailer moving. Then, we can just push until our rear bracket's hole lines up with our tongue's hole. Now, when we line up the holes we want to be sure that the bracket goes inside the tongue, so we can pick up and pull it back just like that. Then we can reinsert our pin, and clip to lock it in place.From there, we're ready to store it. We can walk it up on its end using the rear bumpers. Once we've got it up it'll stay there on its own. As you can see, this way takes up way less space than if you we're to store it normally in your driveway, or in your garage. When you're ready to use it you'll simply walk it down, and then you reverse your steps.And that's going to complete our look at the Malone MicroSport XT Trailer with retractable tongue, part number MPG460XT.
