My husband and I will be coming to Mexico on a Tourist Visa. We are planning on driving our vehicle and an 8x10 enclosed trailer with our personal belongings. Has anyone else done this before or has any information regarding this? Will we be turned away or harassed or?

Thank you very much for your feedback.

Your used personal goods will raise no eyebrows until they exceed about $3000.00 USD value at garage sale prices. Weed way down, as everything you need is available in Mexico. Also be aware that your trailer will become 'part of your towing vehicle' and must leave Mexico with the towing vehicle, whenever it leaves. Plan ahead.

RVGRINGO - I was going to respond earlier but wasn't sure of my backup facts.

So you think a TOURIST can bring in virtually unlimited items (as long as the perceived value is less than $3000 USD) ? An 8 X 10 trailer is pretty big. With no menaje do you think someone/somewhere is going to have to inventory that trailer ?

I KNOW that a temporary resident is 'required' to remove from Mexico whatever they bring into Mexico on a menaje. I have no idea how that is enforced. But if that is true of a TR ...

It is done every day. Just make an inventory and label all boxes. No menaje; just a neat inventory with garage sale prices and dates and serial numbers for electronics. Easy. Just "used personal stuff for my home in Mexico".
