RVing Mexico and Central America Road Conditions
« on: December 05, 2005, 11:42:52 AM »
Panama Canal by RV is almost impossible with a typical RV.  My friend is in Central America and I just traveled to the canal in a 4x4.  After the hurricanes, most central american highways are a disaster and many bridges are out.  In Mexico there are some rough and poor roads, especially on the east coast however they are passable. 
BIG CLASS A MOTORHOME & TRAILERS should avoid altogether central america.  It will take six months to do the repairs..and even now they are limiting traffic to effect passage of local traffic.  Hope this helps anyone planning to travel there.

Here is an interesting read but before the hurricances.

Given this was before the hurricanes. They were on our Newmar group and gathered a lot of advice on what spare parts to take and mechanical preps.

They are back at it but not as far south yet!
