The frame is 76" long and 66" wide, 36" between the tubes. It's a breakdown frame and it's extremely light. The tubes are 13' Legend. I also have a small day frame and probably 90% of the time that is the frame I'll be using for day trips here in Northern Ca with this boat. But I wanted a frame for lightly loaded over nighters like the Rogue next week.
For you I would recommend Sotars ST 15.6 ST tubes and I would have them build it 6" longer OR a couple of inches bigger diameter (no extra charge).
You basically end up with a Jagaurundi or Lion type cat that is perfect for what your trying to do. And a bigger frame with more space between the tubes, approx 40" between the tubes so you can fit a standard size 120 qt cooler and a simular size drybox. The Rec 72 frame is a nice one imo and he will build it to your specs, just tell him what your trying to do. I'm impressed by some of the features on this Recretec frame and I've owned frames from NRS, DRE and AAA as well.
