A trailer was brought to San Carlos about 15 years ago, and has been sitting in the patio all this time. The vehicle that was used to tow the trailer down here no longer exist or is not in the owner's possession, likely was taken back to the USA. Someone else wants to borrow the trailer to take their stuff back to the USA and return the trailer to its owner in San Carlos when they are finished moving. What, if any, problems can be anticipated?


Thank in advance for your based on personal experience opinions.

Going to the USA should not be a huge issue if the trailer has current tags.  Coming back to Mexico is the problem if inspected because the trailer and prime mover will not be in the same name.  What kind of trailer is it?  Might be better off to sell it to someone headed north and be done with it-especially if it has been sitting for 15 years.

Could be a can of worms for a simple task. Do not think you would have a problem towing it North until you reach the US border. Then I am pretty sure you will need current plates on the trailer. Bringing the trailer back might present a whole lot of issues depending on who owns the trailer and if they will be traveling with the trailer. My personal experience is that coming into Mexico they will definately want to see ownership docs on trailer.

It is likely that the trailer had a TIP which would have expired long ago rather than surrendered.  It that is the case, you will never be able to bring that trailer into Mexico again.

You might find the tires totally rotten.

Thanks for your answers...

The trailer has Arizona plates, interested parties have been told that trailer plates don't expire in AZ?

The trailer is likely to be sold to another US Citizen but local San Carlos Resident. The plan is the movers will borrow and take the trailer north, and park it there in AZ. The new owner would want to tow it back to SC with a Mexican Plated car at a later date. The SC resident is a Permanent one. Are you saying bringing the trailer back to SC legally would not be possible?

Is this a utility trailer or a travel (camping) trailer? Permanent tags are common now but not so much 15 years ago. The plate will either have a year sticker or a 'PERM' sticker. Worth checking this out before you head North. The tires are no good after 15 years so you will need new tires and pack the bearings. Good luck.

It is a utility trailer, maybe that makes a difference for the importation?

It will make it easier. Typically they do not require a TIP for a utility trailer (they did not for me).

I never got a TIP for my utility trailer over 10 years ago when I brought it to San Carlos... Sold it a few years back.. It's still rolling around Alamos.

I have entered twice this year with a utility trailer and all that was required was proof of ownership. Car has Montana plate and trailer Arizona forever plate.
