Hey dudes, dudettes.

Currently rolling around Mexico; Yucatan, Campeche, and Chiapas areas.

One thing iv'e noticed: Small extra cab trucks under every auto company are a SMASH HIT in mexico.
Pictured below are some examples, including a luv!

That's pretty normal for much of the world apart from us. In fact spending some time the last 3 summers teaching in Ghana got me thinking about finding a small diesel "ute" - hence my joining the forum here. We want things big and luxurious - most the rest want functional and efficient.

With the free movement of people in vehicles between countries south of us why can't we just go down there and purchase one and drive it back here
