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.
