About Us

Down River Equipment is the Source for All Your River Equipment.  We are a river raft manufacturer that have been manufacturing and supplying river equipment for over 29 years. Our company is owned by boaters and we employ an experienced team of boaters to assist with all your river needs.  We specialize in the custom fabrication, distribution and retail of equipment for any type of river adventure.  Down River Equipment is best known for our quality frames that are 100% made in Colorado.  We also manufacture dry boxes, tables, pumps and a multitude of cargo gear in Colorado. As a river raft manufacturer, our experience and craftsmanship are the best in the industry.  We distribute Hyside, AIRE, Rocky Mountain Rafts, Sawyer, Carlisle, Advanced Composite, Extrasport, Engel and NRS to name a few.

While much of your order can be communicated to us  via our website, one of our well trained staff will follow up with you if you are purchasing any of our frames, tables, or dry boxes.  Our store is located just west of Denver, Colorado.  We have a large showroom with boats, frames and products on display. We’re open year round and enjoy interacting with our customers on a face to face basis. We are a dog friendly establishment, so feel free to bring your furry friends into our store (dog treats are behind the front counter)!

Happy Boating,
