I have heard that at some border crossing they shut it down just before you get there and you stay all night and cross the border into like Belize and then the road gets blocked and you get robbed. You can ship it for about $11 thousand.
11k shipping? the bus will be cheaper.
I like to spend about 3-5 k, your concern is also the reason I like to acquire a skoolie, no fancy stuff. cheaper and much much saver, you see I already think ahead..
I crossed borders with my brand new Avalanche to Panama, Nicaragua etc. I know borders, I know most close at night and open about 6 in the morning or so.
Never show off, never show money dont dress like a rich guy..advice from me..I moved to Costa Rica with only speaking German and Dutch, no Spanish , no English, and I am still here, have experienced most of the good as well as the bad, when I tell ppl, they dont like to hear it, they think I am negative, so I keep it to me..and be rather not judged..
I dont say it can not happen to me, because it can happen to anybody , but I stand better chance because I have been in situations, in Columbia almost arrested on the beach, a girl set me up.. haha dont pick a girl from the streets..just kidding , but one has to be on guard all the time, these countries dont have much law and order...and foreigner are targets ...
Ok, I stray, but how is it possible to get registration and insurance for my project. I know there is a way, seen videos from a German couple which bought a bus from Germany in the USA online , went their to convert and headed to Canada and Alaska down to Mexico!
I try to get a hold of them, with no avail yet
Thanks for reading my rant
hope somebody can help
