New member from Mexico

Hello all, it looks like you have a great forum here with lots of friendly members.
My name is Craig and my wife and I have retired to Mexico, we have lived here full time for four years now and love it here.
We have a pop up truck camper here that we love taking to the beaches and camping for five or six days.

We are considering buying a coach and keeping it in Arizona and seeing some of the states that we haven't seen. But we are very hesitant with the current RV conditions. Full parks and campgrounds, RV prices are very high and hard to come by.

Please give me your opinion, is this a really bad idea?

Thanks for letting me join your group....

Craig,


WELCOME.


Only you can weight the cost/benefits of buying now.


You have accurately identified some of the "down sides".


Your timetable has to enter in as well.


Good luck.


BTW, where are you in Mexico? We have about 50,000 miles in Mexico in our diesel pusher. Really enjoy our many winters there.

Welcome to IRV2 Craig. In what part of Mexico are you residing? We live in Pennsylvania but have been to Puerto Penasco many times and hope to return again next year.

Welcome to the forum.

You are joining a good group of friends here with good information to share. Read the various threads here and ask questions as they come up or add information if you can.

WE are full timers and are finding it more difficult this year finding campsites, but we still manage. I think the "glow" of the adventure for all the newbies will wear off in the next year as things and travel gets back to normal. I feel next year will be easier and prices of RVs will probably ease off some as many will be looking to sell their rigs.

Good luck and enjoy the adventure!

Hi Brett, thanks for your response. We live in Baja, in a small town on the sea of Cortez called Loreto. I have been told the highways on the mainland are similar to the states. Quite a few people bring their rigs down here but the highway is not the best...

Wow, I drove down the Baja as far as Loreto a couple of weeks after the highway was first paved back in the 1970's. Gas stations had not been completed yet and fuel was from 55 gallon drums off a flat bed in the parking of the Pemex under construction.


We were driving a diesel and bought fuel off the shrimp boats.



Yes, at least back then VERY narrow road.
