Smallest Frame for Jaguarundi Tubes?

What would be the smallest length and width frame that you would put on some Aire Jag tubes (16' long 24" diam)? I currently have a 10' 6-bay 72" wide frame for overnight trips, but I would like to have a day frame. Something for doing runs on the Arkansas (RG, Browns, etc). Is 5' and 50" too small?

I used to have some 16x24 maravia's and found that with a six foot long frame the tubes would not stay parallel in big water no matter how tight the straps. That much length protruding outside the frame makes for a lot of leverage against that last d-ring. I think a 5' frame would be much too short.

I used to have a 3 frame set up for my Jag tubes. When playing in big water by myself, I'd only have the 5' by70'' Rowing section. Worked fine. Tubes won't move if you have 2 straps pulling in different directions on each tube
