I purchased my Malone XtraLight Kayak Trailer Kit from Austin Canoe and Kayak and am very happy that I did. I never put a trailer together out of a box prior to my purchase, so I was a bit hesitant to start my order, but I am happy that I did. I assembled trailer mostly by myself. My wife helped when I first started, but she basically read the instructions to me as I started organizing the parts and initiating the wiring process. There was a time or two that I had to scratch my head to make certain that I the parts were in order and facing the right direction, but all is all, the assembly was painless. Even the DMV process was not a hassle. ACK will send you the needed DMV paperwork, so if you do get a kit, I suggest working with the fine folks at ACK before you attempt to register your trailer on your own. I needed specific stickers that came later, so don't jump the gun. Anyway, I give Malone and ACK an A+ for helping me get my trailer on the road, and by the way, I have two kayaks and the trailer handles nicely going down the road with them secured to it. I do recommend getting a pair of Malone Downloader Folding Kayak Carrier(s). I love mine. One last thing, the trailer is easy to maneuver by hand when storing or when connecting or disconnecting to and from a vehicle.
Plan on purchasing a whole new tail light rather than the bulb! The cheap china tail light does not make replacing bulb possible, you will see why not when you try. Otherwise we have had the trailer for a year with no issues. Assembly is a lengthy process as mentioned in other reviews. I am now incredibly disappointed in the amount of time/money invented in the bulb replacement, only to find out this is so poorly built that you cannot remove and replace this bulb.

Love this kayak trailer! Ordering was simple - shipping was amazingly fast. We had the trailer all put together the same day it arrived. We are now able to easily get our 2 kayaks to the lake by towing them with our golf cart! Highly recommend this company and this trailer!
