RE: TIP Renewal question?

A little off topic, but when upgrading to a Residente Permanente, does the remainder of the 10 year permit remain valid, and able to be renewed? I know foreign plated cars must be removed or nationalized. I live in Mexico full time, and nationalizing would not be practical. I have searched, but am not coming up with anything definite.

RE: What would stop you from RVing Mexico?

Would need to be some health issue. I live full time in Mexico, and have never had a safety problem.

RE: Puerto Penasco Dock-All Stop

Russ nails it. For those of us who live full time in Mexico, wanting to do a cruise, and not travel to California or Florida, it’s a no brainer. I live at a beach town, but a cruise would be appealing, and give me a chance to see the Baja without driving. They were supposed to base a ship here in Mazatlan, but it didn’t happpen. Hopefully, Puerto Penasco will. Would work out great for me, as I will get a new RV permit, do some shopping NOB, catch a Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers concert, and the cruise is a bonus. May even do the Copper Canyon again, and make it a killer trip.

RE: anybody removed van toilet/used porta potti

The original toilet in my B was a recycling one, which used the contained liquids for flushing, and the stench was oppressive. I replaced it with a cassette toilet, which I use for #2, and can be poured down any toilet. For #1, I use a portable urinal from my kayaking days, and empty it in any toilet. If none is available, I have a grey water tank, so pour it down the bathroom sink. I know that is TMI, but has served me well travelling all over Mexico for the past 7 years.

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.

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.
