RE: RV tours in Baja, Mexico

The Mexican fuel that comes from the USA is not ULSD. Far too expensive for a country with no vehicles that require ULSD. Try one of the Baja forums for first hand experiences. Fantasy used to have some info on ULSD on their website. Moisheh

RE: Close Call

This past week the USA ended he test program of Mexican trucks entering the USA. Not enough trucks participated in the program. Something like 95 % of the crossings were from one Company. CEMEX, one of the world's largest cement companies. Their trucks put many USA trucks to shame. The trucks we all see at the border are mules. They haul trailers into the border zone. They do not go further North. Moisheh

RE: 2015 Chevrolet Colorado

The manual for the Colorado is on line @ Chevrolet.com. It is not a final print but here is what it says about dinghy towing: "Only dinghy tow four-wheel-drive vehicles with a two-speed transfer case that have an N (Neutral) and a Four-Wheel Drive Low (4 ( n) setting" I would not take that as Gospel without a written confirmation from GM. But sounds like it will be fine. Moisheh

RE: Counterfeit Tires

Wallynm: Some Costco's and Sam's Clubs do sell 22.5 tires. Special order and they do not install. Moisheh

RE: pets

The only place that anyone has had a problem is Lukeville. In 25 plus years of crossing into Mexico we have never been asked to produce anything for our cats. Even going North neither the USA nor Canada has ever asked for a certificate. But we do get one every year. Pet food is another story! Moisheh

RE: Close Call

jtomich: Not at all. I did not state anything like that. I have a CDL and understand what has to be done to keep a truck safe on American roads. On Mexican roads it is double that! Very few drivers in Mexico do a pre or post trip. Although the big trucking companies are right up to date with good trucks and good drivers there are thousands of small outfits or one man shows that should not be on the road. Nothing to do with anyone's intelligence. Have you ever looked at the tires on some 18 wheelers in Mexico? Scary. Have you seen the age of some of the trailers? Have you seen the number of roll over accidents. Have you seen the gravel trucks all beat to hell? Mex's post was far worse than what I stated. But is also the truth. Moisheh

RE: Close Call

Rarely happens on a highway. If the 5th wheel did not lock the trailer will usually drop at the first turn. But being this is Mexico one does not know if the 5 th wheel or the king pin was 40 years old and metal fatigued. They would never think of checking these items! Moisheh

RE: Posting a deposit at the border

Stan has given you the best answer. A truck camper is not a vehicle. NO TIP necessary. Those who suggest you get a TIP are opening up a can of worms. They could say you do not need a TIP but will have to import the camper and pay duty. Just play dumb and either get the truck permit online or @ KM21. Do not mention the camper! Moisheh

RE: RV Tourism in Mexico

cknsls: This board ( or at least the Mexico forum) is NOT mostly USA citizens). Nor are most Mexico RV'rs residents of the USA. They are Canadians that could care less about buy American polices. Probably some who are so far to the left that they dislike the USA! I started this thread and like most of this type it is way off subject. It really does not matter if Mexico is safer than the USA or anywhere else. As others have stated it is about perception. If long time travelers are having second thoughts how about newbies? Try going to an RV park in Arizona, Florida or the RGV and tell them you are headed to Mexico. You will be laughed out of the park with: Are you nuts, you are going to be killed, they will steal your RV and more. Of course that is not the truth but the PERCEPTION is what counts. Before the recent upturn in violence and dangerous demonstrations there were interested newbies. But not now. There have always been areas that one had to avoid but that area has increased in size and much of it is areas where RV'rs travel. No one is targeting RV'rs but one could have real problems if you are on the Autopista and they are demonstrating against the GOV. Some of the demonstrators are not students. They are anarchists. Showing them your Good Sam card will not help! Did you see the news story of the US sailor in Greece? Many years ago we were in Juarez. We walked across on a Sunday. As we were getting ready to leave I noticed a crowd and a stage. Like a schmuk I dragged my wife to that area thinking they were going to play music! It was a political demonstration. It was very crowded and I realized we had to leave quickly. The crowd got louder and in a minute they were burning effigies of Reagan! We got out quickly. Our scariest experience in Mexico. Watch some of the videos of the burning of cars and buildings. Do you want to travel in those areas? Unlike Russ and Mex we do not live full time in Mexico. But unlike most RV'rs we mingle with Mexico families and are part of that community. I listen to their stories and have become more informed about Mexico. The good and the bad. Lately the bad has exceeded the good. Bus robberies are on the increase. None are reported by any media. Most Sonorans have relatives in Sinaloa. Even the poor have smart phones and they all use social media. The reports from Sinaloa south are very scary. Unlike 10 years ago the Mexican public is more informed and that could be the downfall of the Gov. I have not checked this week but the demonstrations have spread to Oaxaca and even Mexico city.

RE: RV Tourism in Mexico

Brian: Not to lessen the killings in the USA but those kids were killed by crazies. The students in Mexico were killed by the orders of a Mayor and his wife. The Mayor in Oaxaca ordered the police to fire into a crowd. If elected Gov.officials are killing people that is a country out of control. More like some of the central American dictatorships. Or some Middle Eastern nations. Moisheh

RE: RV Tourism in Mexico

Russ is upset and rightly so. Who decides what is the "real" Mexico? Is a tourist town any more real than Patzcuaro? Maybe Patzcuaro is not real enough? How about San Cristobal? Is that the real Mexico? My point is that all of the above are real. A country evolves and things change. Every part of the USA is different. Is New York real? How about New Orleans? Penasco is a great spot. It may be Americanized but in a good way. I appreciate the good restaurants and stores with decent food. Too many snobs posting here. Moisheh

RE: RV Tourism in Mexico

Tequila: Many Mexico travelers have been doing this for a long time. They are not spring chickens. As one gets older you have to consider spending your money wisely. Many are on a fixed income . Out living your $$ is a foolish choice. Not everyone has a Government pension. Moisheh

RE: RV Tourism in Mexico

Have you noticed the common reports in this thread? Posters love Mexico but have found it is too expensive and rv travel entails too many hassles. I also notice many experienced México RV travelers having safety concerns. These comments are from posters who know the system and just a few years ago never considered safety a factor. Is this a trend? Today's reports of the protests in Acapulco and a Mayor having a few people killed in Oaxaca are chilling. This is not the Mexico we all know and love. The times they are a changing.

RE: RV Tourism in Mexico

Why does every thread on this subject end up the same way? Can't there be an intelligent discussion on this subject? I was merely pointing out that RV tourism has dropped significantly. Who cares about statistics. It is more about perception. The past 2 or 3 weeks have done more to damage the reputation of Mexico than the drug cartels. At least they mostly killed other drug dealers. I do not think there is anything that can be done to undo the damage./ It does not matter that RV'rs are not involved in any killings. No one wants to RV in a country where the corruption is at all levels. I cannot understand why the Pres. did nothing. This could kill the airline tourism industry. Moisheh

RE: RV Tourism in Mexico

Today's RV'rs do not understand the impact of the caravan's in the 50's and 60's. Unlike today there were no big box stores. Almost no foreign products. Unrefrigerated meat. Milk that went sour in 2 days. Incomplete roads. Failed bridges. No bypasses for many large cities. No 4 lane toll roads. Almost no English spoken. But those RV'rs always brought things for the locals: school supplies, candy, clothing and more. A Caravan passing through a city would have escorts. Almost like a parade. Lots of $$ donated to charities. Must have been quite a happy time for the tourists and the local residents. Moisheh

You would be out of place at the flea markets in Yuma, Mostly junk, Chinese tools, snow bird clothing, used toasters! Moisheh
