We have driven across @ Nogales for the past 4 years with our Tundra PACKED and so far have not had any problems at the border.....thankfully we have gotten the green light everytime. If you are pulling a trailer full of stuff than I would definitely get the expediter....she will save you MANY hours at the border as well as money!!!

5 years ago we pulled a trailer down with our new FM3's and the casa de menaje, and were screwed blued and tatooed.....we were at the border for 12 hours and it cost us an additional $350 over and above what we paid for the menaje at the consulate. We considered ourselves lucky.....the guy next to us @ the border was there for 14 hours and had to pay an additional $1500.

I'm with Jean...either get rid of everything or just bring down whatever fits in the back of a pickup truck!

Shoulda, woulda, coulda........
