A lot of reasons, mostly this boat is used for day trips by our customers, especially here on the Arkansas. The trailer is a nice add on for multi-days and this system allows you to run it in the front or the rear depending on your load and what you're carrying (passenger, pile of dry bags, cooler, etc.).
We could make a longer frame but it creates a bit of a dead space over the front thwart and doesn't really allow for all the options for customizing your load. Also we are a custom frame shop and this is mostly what our customers have requested.
All that being said, if you have an idea in your head of what you want your Phat Cat frame to look like, by all means give us a call at the shop and we can work with you on making that a reality.
