You are going to use a Dutch bridge? I don't know anything about the dimensions of those. I have used a JRB bridge, which has about 9'6" between the outer rings ( I think the new ones are meant to be adjusted a few inches shorter than that). So a 10 foot tarp will extend a few inches past those rings.
However, I tried a MacCat Dlx with the JRB, and with the hex cut it seemed pretty marginal to me. I don't think I would want to use a tarp much smaller than my JRB 10x11 rectangular cut with it, unless I had some sort of undercover or add on doors. But that is just me, some people get by with a good bit less tarp than I like.
Don't forget, you are going to need room for the spreader bars!
