Good Trailer - BUT

This appears to be a very good trailer. However if you’re getting it to carry two wide kayaks, e.g. Old Town Topwater fishing boats, be aware that they WON’T fit on the trailer as it comes. The racks are too narrow and you’ll run the risk of denting the hulls if you store the boats on the trailer. Malone makes an extended bar set, which will accommodate wider boats, and that fixed my problem. The instructions are okay but plan on taking your time and have a helper if you’re not too mechanically inclined. (Use wire ties to secure the wiring. They’ll be less damaging to wires than the provided metal clips.) Overall the trailer’s worked out well , providing a much more convenient way to haul my boats, but has been on the road only once because of all the rain so far so we’ll see.

Happy with Malone

Delivered on time as promised. Very easy to assemble. Ecofishing was responsive to my needs, offering advice as necessary. We are two old people and this trailer, EcoLight with j-racks, solved the transportation problems we were facing. Have had it out a number of times and are very satisfied. Ecofishing was a great place to do our business. THANK YOU!! Mike and Marian B.

Perfect Little Set-up

I have two 14' Kayaks and wanted a trailer to haul them, vs roofing them on my SUV. I came across this trailer and the price was right, it arrived in about 5 days and took me roughly 3 hours to put together, not hard at all with the right tools. My only issue was my trailer came with a cracked tail light, I emailed Malone and within 15 minutes they got back to me and I had a new light 3 days later. Everything works great so far, we took the trailer on a 300 mile round trip with no issues. I'm very pleased with both the product, and the service from Malone when I had a small issue. 10 of 10 would buy again

Easy Assembly and Reliable on the Road

I found the trailer to be easily assembled using the instruction sheet provided. When I picked up my kayaks, I found the 58" load bars to be too narrow and I needed the 78" load bars for my two kayaks. Lesson to learn is what is the beam measurement of your two kayaks and order the appropriate load bar. Trailer is light weight but handles road travel very well. Would recommend the product to anyone, especially in comparison to the price of other kayak trailers.

Just about perfect!!!

This trailer rocks for transporting kayaks long distances! It was super easy to assemble with common hand tools though it did take a few hours. I carry my Old Town Otter on a J rack purchased separately, Old Town Topwater 120 on the provided V racks, and a Rhino 4 rod rack in between. I tow the trailer with my Toyota Tacoma; hardly feels like I'm pulling anything and I've not noticed any loss in gas mileage! I'd imagine you could tow this trailer, easily, with any vehicle that has a 2" ball hitch. The trailer is lightweight enough to move around by hand even with kayaks on it which makes moving and storing it in the garage so much easier!

I did have to add a few things in order to make it "perfect" in my mind..
I used solder and marine grade heat shrink to wire the lights since the splices provided didn't seem waterproof to me. I also sleeved all the wiring with cable sleeves so it didn't get cut on the sharp edges of the frame and tongue.
I added a coiled 4-pin to 7-pin adapter so I can use it on my truck and have a greater turning radius without pulling the wires out of the tongue as they were too short to use as-is.
I had to order a spare tire and spare tire carrier that I mounted to the tongue which I thought should probably be included at the price you pay for this trailer.
I added 4 eyelet bolts to the bottom of the frame so I have tie down points for the bow and stearn straps when highway transporting.
Lastly, I ended up ditching the 58" 1-1/4" load bars and replaced them with 72" 1-1/4" load bars so I could fit my rod holder between my kayaks.
*Without going to a 72"-78" crossbar you cannot fit two wide, fishing kayaks on bunks next to each other.*

Overall this is a fantastic trailer made of high quality materials that just needs a few minor parts added to be perfect. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one!
