Baja vehicle permit?

I'm getting mixed information on the need to obtain a TIP for a motorhome towing a car going to the Baja. I've done this for years and needed no permits for our vehicle, but have seen new information that indicates this has changed. Anyone know if and what the rules are now?

Why don't you just call the Mexican consulate office and get the info right from the source rather than 2nd hand.

Thanks for the idea, but what the Mexican rules say and what actually occurs at the border crossings are not always the same. I would like to hear from people who have actually crossed into Baja in the past year.

Yeah, I understand however it seems to me I'd rather KNOW exactly what is expected by the Mexican Govt. rather than what happens at a particular border crossing.
Let's say for instance that a negligent border officer allows you through and in reality you need a visa/permit etc. Somewhere south of the border you get stopped by a hard nose official and although the border crossing officer passed you through, you really needed to have the visa/permit.

So, you either try to bribe the officer and if that doesn't work, they impound your vehicle and leave you stranded in the desert.

In my opinion, I'd rather KNOW the facts and be sure before you cross the border.

Not sure how true this is as it was 2nd hand information but while I was at the Chula Vista RV Resort for July, Aug and Sept. I spoke to a neighbor and during one of our many conversations, he relayed info. that he had a friend who had his rig confiscated for not having the proper documents while traveling in Mexico. When he finally was able to get the coach out of the impound lot,(cost him $5,000.00) it had been stripped of all of it's valuables/appliances and TV's. There was nothing he could do about it but drive away.

But, it's your life and coach and really isn't my problem but just my opinion.

I have just heard from a friend who operates the Baja Amigos tours that this was misinformation started with the Discover Baja travel club. He said that it presented quite a problem last year for rver's wanting to cross into Baja. He has contacted three branches of the Mexican government and was told no changes had been made for travel into Baja. Good to know.
