Great little trailer, good instructions, easy assembly, all parts fit very well. First trip with 2 kayaks around 700 miles, I noticed grease flecks all over the inside of the right side wheel. Immediately called ACK. I was told to send a picture and they would submit it to Malone and if they determined that it was a warranty issue, I would be sent the appropriate part. I found a good, local trailer repair shop and had the seal replaced and had the other side checked. I know not to drive with an axle seal leaking, causes either seizing of the bearing or a grease fire. Needless to say, I am a little disappointed with this supposed warranty, I could not drive home 700 miles to await a part without incurring further damage. This does not affect my rating of the trailer, I know that parts can fail. I highly recommend this trailer, just make sure you're at home if you have a warranty issue.
Please contact us and we will see about compensating you for the cost of repair in lieu of being able to send you a new part.
Fantastic trailer! Since purchase, I pulled it with two kayaks to North Carolina and Missouri from northern Illinois - - a total of 3,000+ miles. Be sure to check lug nut torque (80 ft.lbs.) after the first 50 miles; and occasionally, thereafter. I modified the build instructions to encase all wiring; and after viewing the experience of others on U- tube, I added one inch square aluminum support posts beneath each of the two weight-bearing cross bars. Also added quick disconnect wiring at side marker lights, rather than splicing the "brown" wire.
