Baja's quality has improved over the years.
But as far as price goes I really don't see them being much less than most. Yes there are a few that are much more money. Baja advertises base price, no frill, no option boats. Compared to many that have more standard options they are about the same. Add the options to a Baja or strip down the other. There really are some brands offering as good of "bang for the buck" as Baja. The really good thing about Baja though, is the availability. You won't have to wait for your dream to come true.
