New Baja Owner

Just bought a 2008 Baja 10Y and I'm really excited. I've been tent camping for years, and then last year my friend bought a small Airstream and it really got my gears turning. As we camped at a music festival, and the snow came down, I retired to my tent and he to his thermostatically controlled climate. Grrr. Three months later at the Fall edition of the same festival, a fellow was camped in the Fleetwood variant of the Baja. It was perfect! I ride dirt bikes, have a quad that I use to explore streams for fishing, and the popup trailer + cargo platform is ideal. Add the king + queen bed, dinette, furnace, bbq, range, outdoor + indoor shower, sound system, wooohhhhoooooo!

Anyway, here's a pic of her hitched up and headed home.

Thanks to the mod for moving this thread to where it belongs.

Thanks for the welcome, guys. Really excited to get to know my new camper this camping season. It's got me thinking about getting out so much more. Packing all the gear for the tent, setting up, breaking down, packing it back in the truck - it had become such a chore that I subconsciously cut back on camping. I'm looking forward to going a bit more "simplistic" with this rig, as it really has almost everything I need.

Cheers!

Someone was listening to what some people need when they designed that. For bikes and quads it should work really good for you.

Trail rider, Could you do me a BIGGGGGGGGG favor? Can you measure your platform as well as your ramps? I just purchased a 2006 Featherlight EXP Baja25k which came without ramps.
I get the runaround from Jayco corp and they will not tell me the measurements on the 2012/13 10y baja so I can decide if the new ramps will fit. The ones for the 2006 is 12x86 and now they are 12x97. I have a 2 1/4" channel on the side and along the front where the ramps are supposed to be placed. No aftermarket ramps seem to be compatible. Any measurements and close up pics of platform would be appreciative.

Did you get the measurement you needed?
