Bringing a truck and mobile trailer home?

New Topic Newest First

Is it feasible to chart a course from Canada with a pickup truck and a 24 foot tow along mobile home ? Would service and parts for a GMC truck be accessible? Would hookup for electricity be available? Is travel through Mexico and Central America safe enough to navigate ? I have two dogs accompanying me so is it feasible for them to move yo the tropics and are there dog sitters that could be accessed down there in Nicaragua? Thanks

Housing is cheap here, trailers are rare because they are pointless.

If I were going to haul a ton of stuff I would settle on Mexico. Personally somewhgere around Puebla or Merida. Or the sw tip of baja.

Flyiong dogs? If you live in mia or can do an extended stay there to get it all together.. No telling when normal air travel will be resumed.

I have not crossed MX for 10+ years, but I went the Gulf route to avoid MXDF at all costs. We never crossed DF without cop problems. H2O 212F

Until Covid hit I was driving back and forth twice a year with a loaded truck.

Most of my trips were chronicled on The Real Nicaragua,, and you can search there for photos, comments.

There is a new route along the Gulf of Mexico that I am eager to try. Flatter, avoiding Mexico City and that area completely.

I've done the trip by myself but I highly recommend taking someone along. In Mexico there is an abundance of places to park a big rig,, the Pemex plazas will allow you to stay the night for a couple of bucks. There is a restroom,, generally a restaurant and small store.

Once you leave Mexico and enter Guatemala,, there is less opportunity to park safely. But the CA countries are small,, can be crossed in a day's driving. At the borders themselves,, you can park with the big trucks, they are always backed up in long lines. Just get in the line.

As a tourist you have precedence in crossing the border,, so you don't wait behind the line of trucks for your turn. Getting around them, however, can be dicey.

You will figure it out :)
