For yrars I gave sated that Mexico is the only civilized country that does not stop all vehicles,record plates and check passports
I have crossed well over 200 times. Inspected maybe 10 times. If I already have a 10 year tip and my fmm can just go right through. Many times if it is cold or early the aduaneros are not even there. I dud notice this spring that the cameras were taking pictures of car tags. No one should complain about a normal inspectio but the 1 ton truck ban is a bunch of c___.Moisheh

Sorry I went off. I was a little uptight. It occurred to me that the Baja doesn't require a tip for the tow vehicle so there is always that. This 3/4 and 1 ton thing has been on the books for several years but most crossings hadn't hasseled RVers before.

Some of the stories that are published on Face book, Twitter and YouTube and some of the blogs contain and have so much misinformation and false accounts that you need to take them with a grain of salt.

I do not use Twitter or Face book, do use YouTube for some items of interest. On one occasion I found some videos on Mexico, first one was by an amateur fellow about an area of Yucatan, very well done, narrated and shot, none of this vertigo panning zoom in zoom out stuff, second one seemed to be semi professional and rather good, until the narrator stated that Acapulco is in the Caribbean sea and San Cristobal de las Casa is in Yucatan, as far as I know Acapulco has not moved from the Pacific coast of Mexico and the state of Chiapas has always had San Cristobal de las Casas in it.

The other item missing in the original account is what type of "cargo" were this trucks carrying or pulling, did they have a full camper shell, a simple shell or what type of trailer were they towing, as far as I know Sonoyta is the only check point that happens to be inland all other "retenes aduanales" have been eliminated, it has been a very long time since we have been stopped for immigration or customs checks away from the border, we have been asked were we are going at some military check points but no documents or TIP checked.

This might be someone trying to scare and misinform.

I also do not do facebook stan could gave provided more details
Or maybe the klutz that posted the info on facebook could have provided more info. Awy eas the online tip cancelled. Maybe somone trying to import a vehicle that did not match the info on the tip. Stan. If you are turned away muliple times why go back to Mexico. Perhaps it is a sign that they do not deserve your business.

Stan's post was not moderated enough. I could care less about your political views. I visit this forum to learn about traveling to Mexico, not to hear political views - which ironically Stan had complained about yesterday.
This forum has lost enough folks over the last few years - let's keep it centered on Mexico.

Love all of your comments.

I watch Facebook kind of like watching a train wreck. I can't quit watching. Yes, there is often some very good information, especially when it comes to where I live. However, a major part of what I see is, "OMG, the restaurant wouldn't take my credit card and then wouldn't give me a good exchange rate for my Canadian dollars!" We are in Guerrero, in a relatively small town. Seriously, are they kidding??

Thank you all for staying with us.

A friend drove from Nogales to Zihuatanejo, arriving yesterday, doing it in a 1 ton in three days. Hopefully I can post his road report manana, it's very positive!

On the same vein, at least 3 people who got their TIP on line have had them cancelled after they were originally approved, one had his money refunded and two were still waiting.


Stan, this may be a problem with the online system rather than anything to do with large pickups. I'm not going this year but was helping another couple with their online applications for a pickup and 5th wheel trailer. These were done separately and both were accepted but the next day they both showed up as "rejected". I know of at least one other person who had the same issue. Just sayin'

There were considerable problems last season with on line permits that seemed to coincide with the change in government. I too have seen reports of people being refused permits with 1 tons this season. All i can suggest is printing out the SAT regulations and pointing out page 22 where it states cargo capacity and maybe print out the page off the banjercito site where it also states that (The spanish version (the English version mistakingly states GVW)

All theses documents are available at https://www.mexicocaravans.com/border.html

If you can take your truck empty to a scale, preferably an official one and get it weighed empty which will usually come in at less than 7710 lbs or 3500 kg, it is not a bad idea. Any official piece of paper showing weights can help.

I am a RP so it has been a long time since I applied for a TIP

While I was at the Anzalduas last Friday going south, declaring my stuff, paying my impuestos, and checking back into Mexico, I went to the CIITEV counter and asked about permits for my "friends" diesel truck towing his RV. That officer wrote 7700GVW and said no mas. First thing he mentioned.

This is just an FYI about one officer on one particular day.
