Cataraft frame help

Finally pulled the trigger on a pair of 14' RMR tubes, now I'd like to get suggestions on a frame that would work for a single with an option for an occasional passenger mostly day trips.

I've got 20 years on my NRS cat frame and it's still holding up like a champ.
It's easy to add on, or modify for the load you carry. Can't go wrong with one.

Definitely will have to be made to be easily reconfigured to go from solo to carrying a passenger. I have tried this on several frames and it is hard to stay in balance on a small cat.

Another vote for NRS. Add, subtract, move things around, and take it all apart for winter storage. Either the cat yokes or the universal drop rails. If you go with the yokes, get the 72 inch size. It gives you more options for coolers & dry boxes.

If you want a single piece frame and are mostly doing day trips, then there's a really sweet looking frame on the Canyon Inflatables sale page.!salesdemo/c13br

The minions will point you to the big box raft frame retailer. To understand is to save money
