whats the big deal with mexico ? are we all talking from experience or from what we have heard from grouchy headstrong drivers and the newsmedia ?....... i have been to mexico and it was one heck of an experience. it's nothing like you hear until now. bottom line it goes like this : you stop just this side of the border and get your trailer tagged and marked (bad problem with theft across the boarder), go thru border control (leave everything electronic there, phones, laptops, etc) go approx 5 miles to the switch point. you swap trailers with one that is already there. as you do this they swap all tires to the trailer your bringing back and you take the grommets with you also (10$ black market there), all this takes about 30-45 minutes. while i waited i went over and ate at a real mexican restaraunt. it wasn't bad. real cheap though. then i left and had to go back thru customs both ways to get me stuff back and make sure i wasn't bringing anything back over. overall it was a good experience and i liked it. i got pics to show of this so i will attach them. they are only from this side though.
