The truck is not a dually and in the past my husband and I got permits for our 5th wheel and same truck with no issues.. Since he has passed away ..I now travel with a slide in camper towing a chev tracker which is much easier..
I'm in my seventies and sure would like to go to the mainland again.. If not I guess I'll have to rethink next winter's plan.Hence the reason to be certain before crossing.
I do appreciate all the input and find this forum a wealth of information.


Try to get your province to change the registration on your truck and camper to an RV. Then you can get a 10 year RV sticker for the truck and a 180 day Chevy sticker.

Also, you will avoid the truck GVW issues.

No province will ever change the registratipn. The vin shows up as a truck
To call it a motorhome you have to show papers where it was an unfinished vehicle and more papers where it was converted. Lots of red tape. Nothing with governments is that easy.

FYI, back in 2006 I received a 10 year permit on my truck/lance camper and my cargo trailer. It was a sweet gift from consulate banjercito office in San Bernardino.

I know it can be done (at least back then)

The windshield sticker is being eliminated according to Sonia Diaz on her Facebook page:

New car permit (TIP) form. The windshield sticker is being eliminated. Banjercito issues 3 documents. One is the TIP, another is proof of paying the TIP fee of 1050 pesos and the third is the deposit of $200, $300 or $400 US.

I have heard this on another forum as well. If it is true and they eliminate the sticker, there will be a lot of reason for transitos to stop people to check their papers opening the door to even more corruption. Maybe there's something I don't know.

Supposedly, they will be able to check on line via cell phone. That doesn't sound good to me if some yokel stops you in Quitzcatzicatl.

Based on all the info here ..I think I will cross into Mexico in Nov. and if I'm not able to get the TIP's either online or enroute...I will stay in the free zone which I believe is as far south as Guaymas.
Wow!! Certainly no clear answer. A big thank-you to those who took the time to respond .

BUT, Transitos are not authorized to check your TIP. The only authorities that can ask to see your TIP are Federales and Aduana.

Are you actually going to refuse to show paperwork to a transito if they ask for it?

Certainly. Why wouldn't you?
