Pros: solidly built, tows beautifully, easy to assemble, good instructions, sure beats lifting my kayak on top of my minivan. Cons: expensive, incandescent lights instead of LEDs, wiring is unprotected (recommend spiral wrap or something similar; there are a lot of sharp edges), instructions should have a section for those who buy the retractable tongue kit at the same time (not too hard to figure out though), U-bolts aren't very elegant (but they do the job). Other: took the trailer on an 800+-mile round-trip fishing trip and had absolutely no problems with it at speeds up to 70mph (normal cruise was 65). After the trip I noticed some wheel bearing grease splattered on the inside of the rims; hopefully this isn't indicative of a problem with the bearing seals. Recently I built a deck for it out of 1/2" plywood and bolted a 48-gallon Rubbermaid Action Packer on top to hold my gear.

The little trailer is perfect for me.!! I am a 55 yr old women with some knee and neck issues and loading my kayak onto the roof of my Ford Escape was a challenge. Assembly was done by my husband and son. It took about 5 hrs to complete. They had all the right tools in their shop which made it easier. The directions sent with the trailer where great, follow them!! I could lift it and move it around pretty easy but to save my back I did buy a swivel jack with a wheel and installed it on the tongue. I had 2 more J-cradles and put them on so I could haul 3 to 4 kayaks. I have not hauled more than 2 kayaks yet but do not fore see any problems. The tie down straps that came with it work great. My Escape is only a 4 cl engine but has no problems pulling this trailer. It pulled nicely behind the car with no swaying; I never go over 60 miles an hour. I have driven long horse trailers before and can back one good so I had no problem backing this trailer. The long tongue put it far enough back behind the car that I could easily see the trailer. Within a few days after I received the trailer kit I receive the manufacturer’s certificate in the mail. There was no problem getting the tag and title for it. I live in NC. I can’t say enough good things about this trailer. I guess I could have bought a utility trailer and rigged it up for a kayak hauling but this trailer is just perfect. I love it!!!! I have recommended to all my kayak women friends. I would have attached pictures but didn't see that option on this review page. American made too!!! Thanks Malone!!

Review:
Excellent investment. I was getting tired of lifting my Ocean Kayak Malibu 2 XL onto the roof of our minivan every weekend and invested in this trailer. Was very pleased with quality and ease of assembly (however, it did take about 4 hours to assemble). Having this trailer also helped solve my kayak storage issues (I now have two Malibu 2 XL's and store them on the trailer [on the J hooks] in my garage, which allows me to store smaller items below on the floor). I also invested in the storage bin and the retractable tongue. Happy with both as well. The storage bin was not quite as large as it looked on- line, but it comes in handy for storing our 6 lifevests and small misc. items. Regarding the retractable tongue, it is held in place with a single hole/pin, which leads to a bit of tongue wobble. I will probably drill a second hole about 8 inches from the original and add a second pin to reduce the wobble. Overall, very pleased with these products.

Review:
This trailer package was everything that it was advertised as. I received all the parts and there were no parts missing. The assembly was relatively easy to do. If you can follow directions you should be able to assemble this package with no trouble. I have used this product a few times this past summer and it performed perfectly. I added two bike racks to my trailer package and therefore I had 2 kayaks, 2 bikes and the storage box that fits the trailer. The only problem I really had is with the bike racks. To make them work properly I had to move the cross members closer to each other and move the storage box toward the back a little more. I added two extra holes to the frame to accomadate the storage box. Not really necessary but I did for my own safety sake. This worked for me because my kayaks are only 12 feet long. If you have a longer kayak and need a bike rack added then I suggest purchasing an extra crossbar. I also added a couple of splices to the wiring so that I could unplug the two sides. This enabled me to remove the tongue and store the trailer upright in my garage, saving me a lot of room. All and all a great product that I am sure I will enjoy for years to come.
