The Malone MicroSport Trailer Removable Storage Trunk allows you to carry your wet and smelly on the trailer for the ride home. With over 4 cubic feet of storage it will hold plenty of gear and ties down to the frame easily and quickly so removal is a breeze.
This was a nice addition to my trailer. Added much needed space for the things I absolutely can not do without. Love the ability to remove and roll to the cabin or tent while on extended kayaking events. Thanks for the support...
Pretty disappointed in this equipment. I purchased this along with the MPG525G and couldn't install it in front of the trailer. I had to move this to the back half and had to drill holes for the mounting bracket. A simple 30 minute project took almost 2 1/2 hours. I wouldnt put anything in this box that you need to access if you arent taking EVERYTHING off the trailer. The only way to open the lid is if the trailer is empty. If you look closely at the description and pictures you would be able to see that, but it is really apparent untill you try. Lastly, if you are mounting your kayaks on their sides, using the Yakima stackers, then the kayaks will be resting on the box. not the best solution. All in all, not really a useful addition to a great trailer. I would recomment a different solution to where to store your materials.
A good concept until you load your kayak on the trailer. George sums it up perfectly. It becomes even less acessable with big heavy yak like our Hobie Oasis. George's summary: Access to the box is difficult once the kayaks are mounted. The cover can only be partially opened and the box is difficult to remove. You need to remember to remove the box when retracting the tongue. There is considerable air drag with the box on long hauls.
I purchased the Plano box for my Malone trailer which I use for kayaks. The installation was simple. The box itself is nice although a little lightweight. The latches are a little difficult to snap close because the box flexes. Access to the box is difficult once the kayaks are mounted. The cover can only be partially opened and the box is difficult to remove. You need to remember to remove the box when retracting the tongue. The box is very functional and I can live with these issues.
