RE: Slow Bridge Crossings

Here on Tulum it is crowded. Traffic is up, the bus station is full, restaurants are very busy, The hotels are already over 90% full. The Sargasso is thick. Semana Santa will be a big boost to the economy.

RE: Yucatán trip planning

I live on the Caribbean coast and have had many RV's here. I am looking to put together another set-up. It really depends on your rig as to where you might camp. Are you coming in a truck with a slide in camper? Trailer?

RE: Diesel Trucks

After many months of searching, I finally purchased my diesel dually, 1997 F350 4-door. The truck already been imported, which save me some expense. FYI, I was at the border during my search. I spoke to several brokers in TJ and Mexicali, as of today 2004 and newer diesel trucks can be imported. I found a perfect 1998 Dodge I wanted but it was a no go. A 2004 Dodge 3500 diesel can be iported for a $4650 or about 25% of the value of a nice clean truck. Now I am searching for a toy hauler or a cabover camper. Anybody got one??? Thanks Tally for the facebook marketplace and the Here We Go maps tip. I found the truck using Marketplace and the Here we go maps to get there.

RE: Possible???

Sr: playaboy in answer to your last post No you can not move the trailer, although it has the 10 year permit, the owner needs to be with the unit when transiting on streets or roads, unless you have a FMM and you obtain a writen permit from the owner stating that you are allowed to use it and carry the original papers or a copy, and that is very iffy and depends on the individual cop and how much mordida is requiered. Posibility of the unit being confiscated is 99.95% if you do not have a tourist visa, the unit could be considered stolen and that is the end of that, unless you have suficiente dinero, mogoya, pancholares, etc. If not then ask the police officer......de a cuanto es el refresco? He will mention how much the soda costs Thaat is not a bribe, you are buying the sodas. navegator That is a pretty definitive answer. Gracias

RE: Possible???

I am the owner (RP) and driver of the Mexican plated truck. The RV trailer has a 10 year permit (the original truck that pulled the trailer down is long gone), with all the proper paperwork, and is in Mexico. The trailer owner will not be with me. Am I allowed to pull the trailer and use it for RV'ing?

Is a Mexican plated truck allowed to pull a USA travel trailer with a TIP?

RE: TelCel Phones

Telcel has great plans at low low low prices compared to the USA. No contracts. However the cheap phones work and sound like cheap phones. Crappy. I use a dual sim phone. One sim is Telcel and one sim is ATT USA for NOB family to call me.

RE: Truck Camper Registration

Jtom, I have a different perspective after reading about your adventure at Del Rio. As you said, it is CARGO. As an RP you are allowed to bring into Mexico up to $300USD's of cargo tax free by land. Over $3000USD you need a broker to process the import. I am sure the camper and its contents are valued greatly above that. The Aduana agent should have sent you to a customs broker for you to import your camper and collect the TAXES. Just like Chris importing his TT years back. The camper has successfully been smuggled into the country. I am not judging you. I am an RP looking for the Mexican plated diesel truck, get my camper or TT in the USA, and be able to legally go down the road anywhere with my Mexican RV. I think Chris’s situation is different. I am pretty sure there is some obscure Aduana law stating reporting any improvements on your vehicle. There always is some obscure law somewhere. You are driving, approaching the border, coming home to Mexico. You have a choice, Declare or No Declare. What do you chose??????? Do you open the can of worms?

RE: Diesel Trucks

Sounds good. Be sure to use a reputable broker. Moisheh Exactly. Do your due diligence before handing over any money. Look the broker up online. there are a lot of wolves hanging out at the border willing to help the pollos.

RE: Diesel Trucks

Moisheh, I read that article on weexpats and several other like them. There is some good info and some not so good info. Let me try to simplify it. You have a vehicle you want to import to Mexico. You call your broker, give them the VIN number and they will tell you if it can be imported or not. If it can be imported they will give you the total cost. Chose your time, make an appointment with the broker, then sit back and let the broker do their job. After the process you will receive your factura, pedimento, and your 30 driving permit. Pretty simple.

RE: Diesel Trucks

Hola Chris, it has been a long time since we spoke. Happy new years. I too am starting to look for a new RV. I have not decided between a cab-over camper or a trailer. Either way I would like a 1-ton diesel dually. I haven’t found many diesels for sale in my area of Mexico. (Tally, Thanks for Facebook Marketplace tip). Was the trailer you imported brand new? When did you import the trailer? Would that 22% rate apply to all non motorized used RV’s? Have you become a Mexican citizen? I have learned that the age limitations on vehicle imports are not as fixed as many people post. In Jan 2014 I imported a 1987, top of the line, mini van (27 years old) with 85000 miles. I purchased the van for 4000 pesos and paid just under $900 usd for the import process. I will drive that van until the salt air completely disintegrates it. Chris, talk with some different brokers about the class B you are looking for. You might not be limited to only that “10 year old van”. Things are flexible at the border. It really comes down to this phase “at the present time”. There are many different ways to bring things across. You might speak with these folks www.superimportaciones.com Enrique Bautista, Enrique(at)pexim.com or cell. (956) 645-8073. I have never used them but they state that older, non-classic, vehicles can be imported. Moisheh, have you imported a vehicle? OldWiz, One of the reasons I am considering a 20 year old truck is they are less complicated, can run on all types of diesel, and are less expensive.

RE: Diesel Trucks

Thanks for the replies. I have lived in MX for 15 years and am a RP. No USA plates or TIP's for me. I want a 1-ton dually. I prefer a Cummings. I haven't been able to find a decent used diesel truck with MX plates. I want another RV to play with. I had a 1990 Ford diesel with a slide in Lance and Caribou campers, back in 2006 for 6 years continuously in Mexico(I got lucky and received a 10 RV permit on my truck). So I am looking to import. I have imported vehicles over the years and am familiar with the process. I am trying to decide if I should try to import a 2010 -11 truck or go for a pre-2007 truck. According to Ed’s post I should not be concerned with LSD, since there is no more being pumped. If I go for an early 2000’s truck than diesel is not an issue but age of the truck is. BTW, there are ways to import older vehicles. I imported a 1987 minivan 4 years ago. It is just a different tax rate, a different classification, and the Aduana agent getting up an the right side of the bed the day my broker brings the paperwork.

RE: Crossed in Laredo, Oct 19.

Help...we just crossed at bridge number 2 in Laredo, cameras took a bunch of pictures of us, we went through the nonndeclare lane and no one stopped us to look at our passports, papers or anything. Did we do something wrong? I think you should have stopped at INM with the online paperwork.

Diesel Trucks

Happy New Years everyone. It has been a while since I have posted here. I have a diesel fuel/truck question. I am looking to import a diesel truck and trailer. Will I be ok bringing in a post 2006 Dodge, Ford or GMC in regards to the ULSD requirements? If I could find a diesel truck with Mexican plates and factura (that would be easier) but after looking for the last 3 months importing seems the way to go.
