RE: Pemex!

Russ brings up an important point. Go to any Pemex early in the morning. You will see charanagas at the pump buying 20 pesos of fuel. 10 year ago they were buying the same 20 pesos. That poor man's salary has not changed but his expenses sure have. Imagine buying 1.5 Ltrs. of fuel every day! The price of that fuel is refelected in everything that poor man buys. I really don't know how the poor in Mexico survive. That 20 pesos is probably 20% of his daily income! Moisheh

RE: Pemex!

I wonder how all those nuts in Kansas will feel when they stop the Keystone pipeline and all the ND fracking and in a few years they run out of oil. Wasn't the expression: Let them Freeze in the dark! Moisheh

RE: San Carlos MX

RV's do not get a "free" pass in the no hassle zone. They are treated the same as in the Federal zone. His tow vehicle should be free but we have a MH so I am not sure. Our toad does not require a permit. Could it be more confusing? Moisheh

RE: Fleetwood Discovery windows fogging

Bumpy: Replacing the windows with new ones will just cause more problems down the road. The windows leak as the mfrs. use a substandard seal. Even the new MH's have the same seal. The rebuilt units have what is known as a super seal. It does not shrink or crawl and thus the rebuilders can offer long warrantees. So, yes, your advice is not good advice. There are probably 20 units in FL. last week that had windows fixed @ Sun Coast and more each week. I have never seen a complaint. These are being fixed by professionals not scabbed together. Why would you assume the workmanship is poor? Is that the type of place you take your unit to be repaired? A backyard shop? As stated: Even if you pass on the one with bad windows the unit with good ones will also leak unless they have been repaired already. The cost to repair the windows is around $2000. In the world of expensive Class A's that is no big deal. Moisheh

RE: Factory Service

You will be spending money for nothing. You must have a list of your problems. If there are no problems don't waste your time. What you are proposing could cost you $10,000 to fix nothing! Moishegh

RE: Nogales Crossing may be a short-term problem!

trnfla: I suggest that you read the news release again. It is not Azdot inspectors that are causing the problem it is the FEDS. As a part time OTR trucker I can tell you that the FMCSA is a bureaucracy out of control. They use bad data (read lies) to bring out new rules that do nothing to enhance safety. Actually the rules are forcing drivers to drive tired. Moisheh

RE: Fleetwood Discovery windows fogging

The 2 brands used by FW are SEGI and Creative. Both have fogging problems. The companies that fix the fogged windows usually give you a lifetime warranty. With any FW ( and others) product it is not if it has fogged windows but when!. So following bumpy's advice is of no value. Moisheh

RE: San Carlos MX

No heat problems until July. There is only one CG in San Carlos, Totonaka. Nice spot. Your trailer needs a 10 year permit. If staying longer than 7 days you need a tourist permit. I think the truck gets in without a permit. You will also need Mexican insurance for both vehicles. The Trailer with the LLC requires a simple letter authorizing you to use the vehicle in Mexico.

RE: Camping near Montreal

Camping Alouette is a great spot. Built just like a Snowbird park from down south. Beats any KOA. Lots of Quebecers use that as their summer residence. Nice people, nice park. Moisheh

RE: How long to get vehicle deposit back?

Aumento de la franquicia Del 1 de noviembre de 2013 al 8 de enero de 2014 la franquicia para los pasajeros de nacionalidad mexicana que arriben al país por vía terrestre se incrementa a 500 dólares. La franquicia cubre hasta 300 dólares o su equivalente en moneda nacional o extranjera, en uno o varios artículos, excepto si son cervezas, bebidas alcohólicas, tabacos labrados y gasolina (salvo la contenida en el tanque de gasolina del vehículo siempre que esté de acuerdo con las especificaciones del fabricante). SAT/Aduana has issued new Duty Free limits for people entering Mexico by air and by land. The new year round limits are $500 US dollars per person entering Mexico by air, and $300 US dollars per person by land. As before, personal items (clothing etc) are exempted from the $300/$500 limits. Moisheh

RE: 2007 Monaco 38PBT Cayman

When using NADA you do NOT add any of the options. If you were trading that unit in the dealers give you ZERO for options. Moisheh

RE: Quick Release Drive Shaft

Mine was installed at the Remco factory. One of the engineers showed me how to use he device. Grinding is normal and does zero damage. I removed the Remco when qwe sold the truck and the splines were perfect. However there is some minor maintemance that is required. Road grime can get into the open splines. Every 6 months I would get out the hose and spray the entire device. Then I would apply some Teflon lube to the splined gears and the moving parts. Worked perfectly. Some will tell you that it can reconnect or disconnect while driving. Impossible unless it never connected properly the first time. The comments about getting the correct vehicle are a little harsh. Let's say you must have a mid size compact pickup. There are only 2 in the market. Toyota and Nissan. Both require a disconnect. If you must have an automatic vehicle there are not that many choices. For smaller foreign SUV's only the Honda can be towed.

RE: Hermosillo RV Park

Of course the sales of RV's are sky high. But ask 100 of the new buyers if they are going to Mexico. The answer will be no. ALMCC has given a great response. Yes fear will be a factor but infrastructure is probably the biggest problem. RV parks with one 15 amp circuit for 2 units. Water pressure that wont even rise to your unit. Tight spaces built for small trailers with no slides. The regulars on this forum do not care about those problems but the new generation of RV'rs want something better. The lack of rv spaces in some areas was a big problem but the decrease in the amount of RV'rs has solved that problem! Many of the nicest parks on the coast are in areas where property values are ridiculous. How can you make money in an RV park that can hold maybe 50 units when a Condo or hotel development could have many hundreds of rooms. RV'rs are only in Mexico for a short season. As Chris stated they are a bad investment. The government is not interested in developing RV parks BUT Tourism in general is booming. Just go to one of the snowbird parks in AZ and mention that you are going to Mexico. The reactions will be: Aren't you worried about your security? I heard a Canadian was killed. Don't the roads damage your unit? Too many nice places to see in the USA. Some will even call you a fool for going to Mexico ! Another problem is that Mexico has never been a destination for RV'rs with children. It is families that are buying all those toy trailers! If the Mexican government showed an interest in RV tourism there would be positive changes. Aduana could drop all the dumb rules and make it as easy as entering Canada or the USA. No holograms and no bonds. Tolls for RV's could be lowered( at one time they did not charge for toads). But alas that is just wishful thinking. Another problem is the RV'rs who insist on going to tourist areas and boondocking on empty lots or Wal Marts. That is a slap in the face for RV park owners. We often get 3 or 4 high end MH's in Kino who just pull into a lot across from the beach. Very bad manners! Moisheh

RE: Hermosillo RV Park

I certainly do not see any great increase in the number of RV travelers. None of the people mentioned are hungry to RV in Mexico. They are moving to Mexico and flying in on junkets. This will probably never change. The generation that is retiring will want more than just a place to park. Not many RV parks in Mexico will meet their requirements. Even though the # of RV spaces has decreased there were still vacancies this past season. High CG prices, expensive fuel and tolls, hassles at the border, crazy Aduana rules and now insurance that is slow to pay does not help. Visiting in a caravan where they do everything but dump your tanks is not like traveling by yourself! Moisheh

RE: Hankook AH11 tires...

Many tend to think that Hankook is just another Chinese tire. First they are not a Chinese tire. Hankook is a first line foreign made tire. They just built a multi million dollar R & D lab in Akron,Ohio. Hankook are OEM on Navistar and I think Freightliner is beginning to use them. They will be more expensive than a Happy Rooster Chinese POJ ! We have a set on our Bounder and when the Dynasty needs tires they will be Hankooks. I wish they made more sizes. Moisheh

RE: storing trailer in Mexico

Tightly covering any RV in any climate will be problematic. In humid areas you will get mould. In dry areas you will get dry rot. Fabrics will fall apart. Foam rubber will lose it's resilience. Glues will become unglued. Rubber and plastic trim will fall apart. Not good. Moisheh
