That looks sweet Jspoon. Do you have a cooler to fit in a drybox bay? I see your current set up has the cooler in a trailer frame. Wondering what the situation would be where you don't want a cooler? DRE did a nice job. I really like the drop bags for the ammo cans.

The cooler is interchangeable with the front dry box. That way I can run 3 or 4 bays and redistribute weight depending on the run. I also can use the trailer frame as a cooler frame if I want to run it as a paddle boat.

I like it. I need a trailer frame for a rear seat when I use mine in my cat, or as you said, as a cooler frame if I want to run it as a paddle boat.

Man.
That is about the smartest, most professional set-up on this thread.
You must be jealous of yourself.

Thanks, I am happy with how it turned out. Side decks and floors yet to come.

Solid. Who makes that frame? It looks a little different than an NRS.

Downs River Equipment, they make some of the best frames out there and they are willing work with you on the design.

Lol wow, best frames out there using screw together fittings?? Look at the welding on your foot bar, its barely even up to mediocre. You mountain buzz people are easily impressed on here, it is the 21st century and you get excited over sticks and rocks construction that everyone else gave up except the schools using the fittings for bleachers . Anyone who lives in Oregon where some of the best frames in the rafting world are made and you are looking at a fitting frame like that out of colorado you are nuts! Will the frame be fun and work for you, of course but don't insult the real frame builders by calling assemblers of parts the best out there. I would like to see every frame manufacturer do a build off of the best wildest thing they could make for the same model boat and display them all at one event and let people judge them. That would be cool
