RE: Mexico RV tourist....

Hi Fausto: I would say that overall RV traffic is down by 40 to 50%. The crime news does not help but there are many factors. The Mexican RV infrastructure is horrible. Lots of very small RV parks with no maintenance. Bad water and electricity. Today's RV'rs demand more than us old travelers. The hassles at the border with bonds does not help. Moisheh

RE: Mexican Insurance How Much $$

Almot: There are many posts on these forums from travelers who had a problem with the Mexican adjuster. I have seen them in action. I swear they get a bonus if the claim can be either denied or downgraded. In every case intervention from the broker solved the problem. Try that with direct buying. Moisheh

RE: Mexican Insurance How Much $$

WRONG: I buy my insurance from a broker! I buy my business insurance through a broker. I buy my home insurance through a broker. So do most people. There is a darn good reason that legitimate companies do not sell their Mexican Insurance direct to the public. They deal in big dollars and do not want the hassle of dealing with whiners and complainers. They also may not have a large staff that is bilingual. Many large companies protect their brokers. If you were a broker would you represent a company that sells their product direct to the public? Bad business practice.

RE: Mexican Insurance How Much $$

This goes beyond it not being possible. Why would anyone want to "cut" out the middle man. Would you try and buy a car directly from Mopar? Do you buy your beer directly from Budweiser? Besides if you deal with a good broker they can give knowledgeable advice on coverage and often can help when you have a claim. Sometimes one can be too thrifty. Why try and take the food out of the mouth of a salesman?

RE: tolls

If a rock flies up in the middle of the road or some truck throws it back at your windshield here is no coverage. The large glass shops can bring in windshields from the USA. BUT they go first to TJ and then to the destination. Takes months. Moisheh

RE: What is the cheapest way to buy Mex Pesos?

Chris: Every bank accepts almost any debit cards for cash withdrawals. I was wondering if stores will accept Canadian and US debit cards for purchases. I will have to check with my Canadian bank to see if they charge extra to use your debit card in Mexico. I just did a Google on this subject and it appears that the card is accepted BUT you will pay the foreign exchange fees. These are usually 2.5%. I still think cash is best. Use an ATM to get your pesos and pay cash. Moisheh

RE: Mexican Insurance How Much $$

Many people do not understand Mexican insurance. NOB when you need insurance one often turns to the same fellow who sells you home insurance and maybe life insurance. He is able to "bundle" your policies and may save you some money. Your agent will need to know your driving record, make of vehicle, claims history and may even run a credit check. Mexican insurance is usually based strictly on the value of the vehicle. Doesn't matter if it is a Trebant or a Mercedes. As long as you have a DL your driving history is meaningless. There really are not many sellers of tourist insurance. Maybe less than a dozen. The rest are just agents who get their insurance from a company in Scottsdale . Something like International Insurance. They have ready made websites for anyone who wants to be an agent. No license required. That website will show 5 or 6 policies from a few Mexican insurers. Lewis and Lewis are a true broker. Jim Lewis designed the Qualitas policy. You have to look at more than just the cost. As Tequila mentioned some insurers will only pay $38 per hour labor. Some require you to have the vehicle repaired in Mexico. Others have very low medical coverage and liability. One also has to be aware that if you value your $10,000 vehicle at $15,000 your claim will only pay NADA ( or equivalent) wholesale. If you undervalue the vehicle your claim may be downgraded. If you buy from some fly by night outfit you have no recourse in case of a dispute. Buyer beware. Moisheh

RE: Baja Guidebook Update

Rob: So true. Our own Mexwanderer used to publish a guide book but even he gave that up. There are still some good general guide books but they are for backpackers and tourists not for RVing. Moon once sent me on a road that was torn up 10 years before the publication date of the book! Moisheh

RE: Mexican Insurance How Much $$

With all due respect here is your answer $100 to $3000. Do you really expect everyone to do your homework? Use the search engine and you will quickly see that there are about 4 agencies that are used by a lot of posters. They all have web sites where you can plug in your information and get a quote.

RE: Trading in a Canadian RV to US RV dealer

It can be done but be aware that you will have to pay full GST and PST on the full price of the new vehicle. If it is a motorhome there are some hurdles in order to "sell" your old unit. Some dealers in snowbird areas know all the ins and outs.

RE: Baja Guidebook Update

Moon's books are usually 2 years out of date when they are published.

RE: Mexican Insurance How Much $$

Asking what people are paying is a waste of bandwidth. Every poster has a different vehicle with a different value. Thus all prices will be different. You would be unable to compare. To get a good answer you need to ask a good question. Lewis and Lewis has a good reputation on this forum. You have an expensive truck and really need to find a good policy that will provide good coverage. They have a website. We have been using them since we first came to Mexico 25 years ago. You could also do a search on this forum as this subject comes up all the time. Moisheh

RE: What is the cheapest way to buy Mex Pesos?

Chris: Do Mexican retailers accept foreign debit cards? Very few of us have debit cards issued by Mexican banks. We cannot pay the CFE, Telmex, property taxes or the water dept. with any foreign plastic. Moisheh

RE: What is the cheapest way to buy Mex Pesos?

In Mexico many retailers charge extra to use your CC. Costco and Sam's do this. Appliance stores as well. Some small merchants will take your CC and charge up to 3% to use the card. Many small to medium size merchants do not accept CC's. In 25 years in Mexico have only used my CC 4 or 5 times. Cash is King! Moisheh

RE: Is this the start of Workhorse again? Isuzu?

GM And Isuzu have been cross branding the N series for many years. But something must have happened to that agreement as Isuzu now markets the trucks themselves and GM does not sell them. We have 2 in our small fleet. One is an Isuzu NPR and the other is a Chevrolet 4500. They are twins! Moisheh

RE: 2014 Jeep Cherokee needs new tranny

rfsod: I can understand your supporting Chrysler. You have a lot of $$ invested in that vehicle and you deserve to get your moneys worth. I am going to buying a new toad in the next 3 to 10 months and am trying to be open to any vehicle regardless of the make that would work. The Jeep line was probably the most popular toad. Same for many of the Ford products. But both seem to have problems. First I was disappointed that the Focus is such a bad vehicle. Tranny problems. The CRV is no longer towable. I thought maybe a Cherokee would work. Personally I wouldn't buy one until they solve this problem. And you can bet here are hundreds of RV'rs that feel the same. When people are posting that they recommend an extended warranty as they fear future problems that tells a story. Even the head of Chrysler admits here is a problem. I would not have posted those links but you made light of a serious problem. Your last post is not much different. Has nothing to do with a discussion about toads. I do hope the problem is solved and that Chrysler stands behind all the owners . I hope your tranny never gives you any trouble.

RE: 2014 Jeep Cherokee needs new tranny

rfsd48. Your logic would give a Gold Seal to an 87 Hyundia or a Pinto. I am sure those who do have tranny problems will think differently. Moisheh

RE: Residential Fridge

Doug: What makes you think that residential fridges might cause a fire? Of course it could happen but the systems are entirely different. Your logic is twisted.
