Travel Help Centre for obtaining VEHICLES, PARTS, INSURANCE, and TRAVEL PARTNERS, going via the Pan American Highway USA - ARGENTINA.

EUROPE/ASIA FRIENDS.... if YOU are looking for vehicle advise or USA paperwork before you leave let's combine our information here. Get your paperwork done at least a month before your departure, pick up a used vehicle in the USA its cheap, and start at the Mexico border for your southbound journey.

USA and CANADA ... know what documents needed for the adventure, feedback on the best border points, and where to get supplies before departure.

I have traveled almost a million kilometers in latin america over 20+ years ....all with camping, so I can answer most questions. Also I will be starting another trip in 2014 from USA all the way on the Pan AM.

Choose a pre-2010 used vehicle (if DIESEL) because of the new diesel fuel requirements. Also a good buy on a cheap smaller gasoline motorhome is a good choice..... hint: If you buy a RV in the USA, you can RESELL it to another traveler to use again and recover most of your investment!!! Some of the best places to buy is in the border areas of south texas, and to re sell also.

Most RV can be bought for $4000 to $20000 usd
