The MPG462G2 MicroSport Trailer Package was designed to safely transport four kayaks, each up to 19 feet long, over conditions ranging from a high speed interstate to an off-payment camp road. Great for taking the whole family kayaking or putting together a weekend long trip with friends. Each trailer includes 78 in. wide loadbars that provide the extra room required to fit the carriers. Each kit includes a standard 8 ft. reinforced tongue with 2 in. hitch, D.O.T. approved lighting and bearings, pre-wired electrical system, pre-fitted chassis components, 12 in. slotted wheels, spare tire with locking attachment and four sets of the top rated MPG117MD J-Pro2 kayak carriers.

this is a good trailer. It's got a few flaws in the design, but with a little extra work can be a lot better. First off, throw away the electrical connectors and get out the soldering iron and some heat shrink. I also put some plastic wiring harness cover over the exposed wiring. second, the trailer is galvanized BEFORE the pieces are cut. get yourself some spray cold galvanize paint (zinc) at the hardware store and spray all the edges of the parts before assembly. the trailer frame is C channel. this means when you tighten down the upright supports that hold the cross bars you are going to get some flex in the trailer. I cut some pipe to fit inside the channel and put the u-bolts through these as spacers so the open side if the channel can't compress and flex. this really stiffened up the entire assembly. I also replaced the bolts on the J carriers with longer bolts and double nutted them to make them more difficult to remove from the crossbars, because anyone could just unscrew the carriers and make off with them while your out paddling. I'm very happy with the trailer now.
This review is written by an avid kayak angler who travels the US due to work and the yaks ALWAYS go. I purchased this trailer in hopes of not having to do any modifications to make it interstate worthy. While I do not use the J saddles, I added some stuff to the top side to make the PA and OB comfortable. These 2 yaks travel with 100% of the fishing gear inside of them so the trailer receives no mercy. This trailer has been on multiple cross country endeavors with the cruise control set on 78 mph. Since the economy (and fuel prices) have become aggressive, I started driving a Cry 300 with a V-6 and was looking for a light weight, durable trailer that wasn't to heavy for my car. This is it !!!!! Attached to the tongue are the spare tire, 4 way lug wrench, and jack. I have had ZERO issues with the 12 inch tires that came with the trailer. My PA rides at approx. 210 lbs and Outback rides at approx. 110 lbs. I not only would recommend this trailer to others but I would purchase it again if the need arises. Regardless of any product that I choose to purchase for kayak needs, ACK has earned my business though good old fashion customer service. Their people are the elite in taking care of the customers that order their products. SD Williams
