With room for both a cooler and a dry box, the NRS Bighorn II Raft Frame gives you plenty of cargo space for multiday expeditions. Strap it onto your boat and go do that big trip you've always dreamed of!
  • 82" and 88" frame lengths make the Bighorn II an excellent fit on most 14' and longer rafts.
  • Includes four 9' NRS straps and eight strap slides for securing your cooler and dry box to the frame.
  • The heart of the NRS raft frame system, the LoPro™ Fitting allows complete adjustability for all frame parts. Now made in stronger, lighter hot-forged aluminum alloy.
  • NRS Oar Mounts are lighter, sleeker and stronger than ever with hot-forged aluminum alloy construction and a nylon insert to reduce rowing friction.
  • The NRS frame system makes it easy to add accessories like Side Rail Racks, Casting Platforms, Thigh Bars and Anchor Systems for even more convenience, performance and fun.
  • Use at least four NRS Tie-Down Straps to secure the frame to your boat.
  • Components: Side Rails, Seat Bar with Universal Seat Mount, four Cross Bars, Foot Bar, Low-Back Drain-Hole Seat, 6" Oar Mounts, four 9' NRS Tie-Down Straps, eight Strap Slides.
  • Seat bars now use the Universal Seat Mount for attaching the padded seats. Create your rower's seat bar for the Low-Back Drain-Hole Seat by U-bolting the Universal Seat Mount to one of the cross bars. This allows you to precisely set the location of the seat and the seat angle.
  • Coolers and dry boxes sold separately.

  • NRS Bighorn II Raft Frame

    Q:

    I have a Vanguard 13' (PSB-1300). It's center to center width is 55", is 60" frame too wide?
    Also, can I get a Bighorn II frame with 72" or 78" siderails? Could I have both a cooler & drybox at those lengths?
    Thanks.

      A:

      A 60" frame will be fine; it puts the siderails only 2.5" out past the center line. We can make the rails at any length for you. You should be able to make a 78" long frame work for that; I don't think the 72" will be a good idea. I suggest you mock out the frame at home with the size of the boxes and rower's legs. Remember to take the 1 5/8"D frame pieces into your measurements.

    Q:

    We want the frame long enough to sit on a box with a cooler and a box in front of me & hopefully room for another cargo/box area behind the oaring box location.

    I am not certain which size I might need.

      A:

      Matthew, from Maravia's online specs I calculate the center-to-center of your side tubes as 68". You could go with a 66" wide frame, but I'd recommend the 72". They say the flat section is 92". We don't make stock side rails that length, but can custom ones for you. You may be stretching it to get four boxes in the frame; please lay out the measurements at home to see if it'll work. I've got 94" rails on my NRS E-150. I sit on my dry box and can put two coolers in front. Might be able to squeeze in another box, but haven't tried it. Call to discuss with one of our skilled sales folks, and to place a custom order, 800.635.5202.

      You can swap out the seats, for the difference in price. The frame is not likely to go on sale anytime soon.

    IS THE NRS BIGHORN II 72" X 88" A GOOD FIT FOR THE AIRE 156R?

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Center-to-center of the side tubes is 63", so the 66" wide frame is a good fit. You have a 92.5" flat area on that boat. So, the 66" x 88" Bighorn II is a great choice.

    Q:

    Is there a way to configure the Bighorn II to hold 2 dryboxes and a cooler, say if the cooler is under the seat?
    Asked on 1/29/2016 by Lindsey from United States

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Lindsey, if there's enough length in the center flat area of the side tubes for frame side rails long enough to accommodate three bays, you can certainly do that. Sounds like what you're looking for is a Compact Outfitter Frame, Item # 92005.02. Just add another cross bar for supporting that third box. If you want to sit on one of our padded seats, add the Flip Seat Mount, # 92019.02. Give us a call to discuss options for getting the right frame setup for your needs.

    Q:

    I have a 14 ft RMR with 62" width by an 81" flat section. What frame size should I get. The 60X82 seems like the proper fit but its an Inch to long and 2" to short for the width. Any thoughts?

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Ryan, online - http://rockymountainrafts.com/14'_raft.html - RMR specs give a 65" center-to-center measurement (width minus one tube diameter) for that boat. Even if yours is 62" I'd still go with a 66"W frame. We can make the side rail length to your specifications. Just give us a call to discuss your options, 800.635.5202.
