212QBW BAJA hitch height

We are looking at buying the 212QBW and we are heavily considering the BAJA edition. But I am curious what is the hitch height on the Baja trailers. So does anyone know the hitch height of the 212 BAJA? Also anyone have pics of it hooked up to a stock F150 4X4? Thanks in advance.

Jayco dry weight is 460LBS

https://www.jayco.com/products/trave...ht-slx/212qbw/

My apple... or Orange is a 2014 F-150 lifted with a 19' Starcraft Extreme (similar to Baja) single axle but close weights.

F-150s have a broad towing range depending on configuration but the 212QBW should easily fit within that range. Check the ford site and inside your door frame for your more specific towing specs. A weight distribution hitch would make for a good choice in your planning as well.

Sweet looking Jayco!! Hope it works out!

Looks like the 212 Baja is 29" hitch height. That will put hitch a bit above bumper, wonder if it is too high?

My 22BHM Baja is 28.5". I'm guessing yours will be similar.

My hitch height is 26" at the tongue of the camper. You can get hitches to go up (rise) or down (drop) based on your needs to keep the camper at an optimal level.

Currently I use a 3" drop hitch flipped for a raise of 3".

Ur I know they adjust up or down. My issue is the top of my receiver on my truck is 21". So the Baja trailer tongue is 29". That means it will be 8" above my receiver, seems a little high. I think we have decided to get the NON BAJA unit.

That is correct. On my Ram 2500, I am using a 4" rise on my Anderson. With my wife's 1/2 ton or my van, I need an 8" rise to end up slightly nose down with my setup.
