The Malone MicroSport XT Kayak Trailer further enhances the base model of the MicroSport Trailer by adding a removable/retractable tongue for easy storage, aluminum spoke wheels and diamond plate aluminum fenders for a great custom look. The 8 ft. tongue can be removed in less than 10 seconds which allows the MicroSport XT to be stored vertically against a wall taking up less than 20 sq. ft. of space. Made in the USA

If ACK will assemble it in Austin for your pickup there, go for it. It took probably ten hours, half of that with two people to get it done. The printed instructions are good, but the color instructions will eliminate questions about wiring. The retractable tongue came damaged and a replacement came quickly. The trailer weight over springs seemed to handle highway speeds well.
This is a good little trailer kit for light canoes and kayaks. it assembles very quickly and the instructions were easily followed and logical to me. The materials used in the fabrication process are more that adequate. I bought this trailer for Predator 13. I have pulled the trailer up to 70 MPH and had no tracking issues. The axle mounts far to the rear of the trailer so tracking problems are eliminated. I was missing one of the fender mounting brackets which was sent to me from Malone after I contacted ACK. I made a temporary bracket patterned after the ones I received and used it until I received the missing part. As usual ACK was exceptional in sales and support.
