Sparks, thanks for posting this info. This will be the first time for us to use this crossing at Nogales. As we will be pulling a 5th wheel, do we stay to the right and go through the truck crossing, or do we stay to the left and go through with the passenger vehicles. Do we still turn or permit in at km 21? Are any other surprises that we need to watch for? thx.

>>>> Starting Monday morning, commercial trucks will use new lanes on the east side.

My guess is 'commercial' is the key diffrence. From what I hear the vehicle permit is still handled at KM21 .... but I haven't driven back for 5 years.

Limon: Apparently you get into lane 1. There is lane "0" for RV's and they will direct you to that lane and open it. This is second hand info and we are NOB so I cannot verify. This is all new so it is hard to get accurate info. Good luck!
