I have most all of the older model NRS SUPs. The Earl 6 is 10.6 x 30 x 6 and the Baron 6 is 11.4 x 36 x 6. The 10.3 Thrive is close the the Imperial 6 and or 4 of years past.
Great idea to bring an inflatable SUP. Would easily work into your gear load. NRS SUPs are solid as you would expect. I have had most of mine between 2-5 years now.
3 piece paddle fits inside the SUP bag and the K-pump 200 is an awesome SUP pump that fits nice and clean into the bag or can be used as your topper for your raft also for a 2 for 1.
You might consider the next width up at 34 inches. Everyone can stand on my big Baron at 36" wide but not everyone can stand on my Earl 6 at 30" wide. I love my Earl 6 in flat water easier to paddle because the width is closer to the shoulders. However, in moving current I use the big Baron or czar 6 both 36".
Let me know if you have more questions. I can't see yours and might of left something out.
