RE: When is a Cooler not cool?

For quick and easy, cover it with one of those silver survival blankets. Ice will last 3 times longer.

RE: Summer in Mexico

I have stayed in all of the cities mentioned, but my favorite remains San Miguel de Allende. If you have a smaller rig, you can stay in town, and walk wherever you want. You are a short distance from Guanajuato, probably the most beautiful city in Colonial Mexico, which has a park about 10km out of town. Patzcuaro also has a campground in town. If you have a tow vehicle, any of the cities mentioned will work.

RE: Mexican Insurance

As a single person, with both a RV and auto fulltime in Mexico, I have a driver's license policy. It is written through Qualitas, and the premium is $176.00 for $300,000 coverage, and is for the entire country. As an RV'er, make sure you are covered for the Mexican states you will be travelling. Many policies, offering low premiums, do not cover you for the high liability ones.

RE: Campground

They've had a standing offer for years. Just waiting for mom to pass.

RE: Campground

Mar Rosa best bet. You're close to everything you'll need, and the bus stops at the entrance when you head down to Centro. It will be open next year, but afterwards is iffy.

RE: How full is your RV Park?

Mazatlan - California is closed. Mar Rosa is about 1/3 full. San Fernando is about 2/3 full. San Bartolo has a few spaces, but they are building condos. Las Jabis is huge, and always has room. Cerritos is mostly full with long term leases. I have not been to Stone Island.

Guanajuato

Was at Bugamville RV Park for two days last week. Have made some changes, with new 30amp electrical, new water and sewer system for all 42 spaces. They now own the property to the highway, so have cleaned things up. Carlos was in the process of building a laundry room. Did check out the park in town, but don't think I could get my Ford wide-body campervan in there.

Working fine, here in Mazatlan.

RE: Fire Extinguisher Mounting Pics

Under the passenger's seat, parallel to the driver, with handle facing rearward. That way I can grab it instantly, without leaving my seat.

RE: Expiring vehicle registrations

I was flagged down by a group of transitos in Toluca. After showing him copies of all the documentation he asked for, he got a smirk on his face, and asked about the plates, which expired 6 years ago. I showed him a copy of Article 106 in Spanish, and he just stood there. Guess he realized he wasn't getting any mordida, and was thinking what to tell his buddies, as I drove off. I do have a Residente Temporal.

RE: Looking for RV park with English or Spanich speaking guest.

As mentioned above, La Penita would be the #1 choice. You might want to contact them for a reservation, as they do fill up fast, especially if you have a large RV.

RE: Road conditions post hurricanes

A little late to the game, but if you're travelling central Mexico, the roads are mostly good. Last week or so Jacotopec, Patzcuaro, Valle de Bravo, Toluca, Cuernavaca area, Lake Tequesquintengo, Oaxtepec, Mineral de Chico, and San Miguel are fine. Any damage is being repaired quickly. Campgrounds are soggy, and some without electricity and internet. Have only seen 3 RV'ers travelling in the past month. The sun is out in San Miguel, and life is great.

RE: Dash Cam for Mexico & USA

This is what I use:Windshield Camera Mount With its 8" neck, you can mount it anywhere you want, but it will induce some camera shake on the roads here in Mexico. My normal pocket camera has a built in Image Stabilizer, so no problem.

RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

Replaced all engine belts, fixed both electric windows, repaired roof air, replaced some running light bulbs, a little body work, fixed some electrical problems, removed inverter, removed catalytic heater, and hot water heater. All for under $200, you gotta love Mexico. Should be good for the rest of my 2,500 mile trip.

RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

Rotated the tires, all the way from Mazatlan to Lake Santa Maria del Oro, Mexico, about 175 miles.

Morelia Visit

I plan to spend 4 days in Morelia next week. The closest RV parks are in Patzcuaro and Cuitzeo, but like Most Mexicans I'm a night owl, so would like to stay in the city. I'm in a camper van, so height might be a problem. Any suggestions out there? Thanks

RE: TC or a "B", would like some opinions/advice...

As a B owner, I'd suggest you check out the class B Forum to help you make a decision. Some of the advantages are that almost the entire length is living/storage space, they are as fully equipped as a class A, but on a smaller scale, and you don't need to go outside in the rain to reach the living area. The front seats do swivel, giving you even more room, and you can use it as a daily driver. With a TC, I would imagine an awning would be an afterthought. Of course, you can't haul firewood in the pickup bed. You can see my idea of a perfect vehicle in my profile. It may be old, but is reliable, and one tough vehicle.

If we quit feeding the troll, will he go away?

RE: Planing a trip to Mexico with my family(safety concerns)

t's a public forum...if you don't like what I am saying -use the "block" feature on this board. BTW-I am an ex Southern Californian, been to Mexico many times prior to their "internal troubles The original poster is looking for information from those forum members living in, or travelling Mexico. Posts from a "have been" and "Chicken Little" poster are of no value. Just my 2 pesos worth.
