The top of the line expedition cataraft frames, this 5-bay frame handles the biggest whitewater and cargo needs. The Down River Deso 5-Bay Diamond Plate Cataraft Frame XD (up to 16.5ft x 28in) has all the benefits of the Deso XD with the addition of diamond plate decking for added stability when rigging your cat. These decks provide a safe place to walk and are a great place to stow awkward gear (e.g. rocket box, fire pan). The Down River Deso 5-Bay Diamond Plate Cataraft Frame XD includes oar towers. (Frame shown with additional accessories)

Every Down River frame is custom designed and built to specifically fit your boat and your needs. We do not believe in the one size fits all approach. When you purchase a DRE frame, we will set the length and width to fit your boat and the bay openings to accommodate your gear.  All frames are built onsite which gives us great flexibility in meeting your needs.  We design our frames with safety and functionality in mind. Only Down River frames provide maximum storage in your cargo area by utilizing designs that don’t waste space.
