I have the same complaint as John did about this kickstand. One kayak and a roof box is all I have on my trailer, yet upon setting the trailer down once the kickstand is deployed, it rests swayed to one side (even though it is sitting on level ground). This never gave me a feeling of confidence in how this thing was engineered. Furthermore, I too have had the weight of the trailer cause the kickstand to fail and collapse to the ground mashing my coupler into whatever was there (concrete, grass, etc.). I've only had my trailer less than a year, and have probably used it only half a dozen times before this last collapse happened whereby it sheared off the push-button pin which holds the kickstand in place. Now the kickstand is useless, and will not stand on it's own without the pin in place. I'll be contacting Yakima about this and I hope that they will warranty it.
