Rving in Mexico and South America

Just left Puerto Penasco 2 weeks ago. Stayed for 5 weeks. Had a good time. Got some sun, not that I needed to get any darker. Peso was at about 18 to the US Dollar. Fuel was fairly high. Friends are reporting the town and beaches are now closing down. The towns gonna hurt during this time. Peso today on the world exchange was at 24.4 pesos to the dollar. Rving in mexico and south America is the topic of this section. Not going to be much rv travel from the US to mexico. Probably should change it to "Living in Mexico and South America" so those of you living there will have something to talk about.

RE: hate to be a donnie downer...

Gonna be hard to say. More of an estimate than anything else.

RE: Diesel Fuel for newer diesels

Wow, you're right. I checked the forum search and it goes back to October 2005. Almost 15 years. I was so much younger then :) 2005 huh? I can't remember back that far. I was much younger then also. I joined this forum in 2004 and was heading to mexico then. I wonder if it went on before then?

RE: Diesel Fuel for newer diesels

Hey, I remember this same argument on this forum back in 2008 and then again in 2011. I see not much has changed in 2020. I asked this same question last year for a friend traveling to mexico and got mixed responses from these forum. I told my friend to check with the manufacture and get it in writing whatever the answer was. This only affects diesel rigs from NOB visiting Mexico. What is that? 1500 trucks total for a year? Mexican trucks have no problems with LSD. Yeah. This is a forum in the U.S. about Rving in Mexico and South America . Its supposed to provide information to visitors traveling to those countries reference rving. Mexican trucks having no problems in their own country, well thats just great. One would hope that would be the case. I told my friend,.....again, as we visit mexico this february to check with his manufacture and get it in writing , whatever the answer cause this forum has been debating this issue for years. I would say the same to the original poster.

RE: CPAP and CBD oil

Anyone have issues with taking CBD oil or a CPAP into Mexico??? P CPAP ok. CBD? You are on your own with that one. US Federal government still regulates Interstate Commerce. Oh Mary ja wanna is legal ...... IN several states, but CBD across state lines is still a gray area. Probably not much to worry about, unless there is say, a traffic stop for say, speeding and they bring a doggy around, sniffing. The Mule. Taking anything across the Mehico international border, such as steaks, meat products, etc is illegal but I'm betting there some of us that go North and South across the US/Mexican border with just a little too much of the good tequila or a steak or two. I've lived in a couple of foreign countries and took no chances. Wife used to live in Mexico and I've been many times. We still take no chances, even when we travel to Rocky Point this Feb. So its not the possession stuff (especially for the OP in Oregon), its the taking it across state lines and international borders. Fed gubmint stuff To beat the dead cavallo a bit more, here is just one of many articles avail, if you're interested https://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2019/08/02/CBD-market-still-fragmented-by-risks-in-interstate-commerce/7361564785044/

RE: Becoming a resident gets a lot harder after NY's

Not sure what all this has to do with rving in Mexico or South America but I'll bite. I wonder what the requirements are for other south american countries? Costa Rica in particular has some merit. Visited there a couple of times. Looks like it might be an option.

RE: how to level a trailer

Find another spot?? You're kidding! And miss out on on that entertainment? ;) We view a really un-level spot as a challenge, a fun opportunity for stacking up a lot of rocks and Lego blocks, like this: https://i.imgur.com/plGGNH4l.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. After spending an hour attempting to get the trailer level, we can't move because we have sunk so much time and energy into trying to cope with a bad campsite. ;) This is an example of the "sunk cost fallacy," kind of like throwing good money after bad. There really is a time, as Galvanizd indicates, in which discretion is the wiser part of valor. That brought a smile. wow.

RE: how to level a trailer

I level side to side using the LGTM system. Then I use the bathroom door for front to back. Depending on which way it swings, raise or lower the front jack. The, Looks Good To Me, system works fairly well for me. if its way off, usually find another camp spot.

RE: Which WDH?

Ah, choice made by the OP. Rving is a leisure/ luxury endeavor . That said... Safety 1st. You paid a lot of money for your rv, you're supposed to enjoy it. Now the choice of which hitch? Cheap one? Expensive one? Cost of a hitch is certainly a consideration but its a one time purchase......unless you buy one that doesn't work for you or is unsafe. Trouble is most don't know , (some do) whats unsafe for their rig until they have a " white knuckle" experience or the Trooper asks "what happened". Here's more info; https://www.etrailer.com/faq-which-sway-control-hitch.aspx https://hensleymfg.com/trailer-sway-101/ https://www.propridehitch.com/understanding-sway %^&^%$# computer. should work now.
