Crossing into Canada with an HDT


Crossing into Mexico with an HDT

If you have any thoughts about taking your rig "HDT" into Mexico then leaving your 5th-Wheel there when you head back to the U.S. you had better read In a big Bind What do I do now? before doing so.


As of the later part of 2008 it looks as though HDT's and MDT's are No Longer Permitted to enter Mexico even when towing your 5th-Wheel.

If your planning a trip into Mexico with your HDT your best to do some in depth research about the current border crossing regulations before heading down that way.
