Mexico RV Caravan Tours

 

Customer Code of Behavior

It is unfortunate we even have to implement this, but we have had some customers in the past who misbehave and damage the enjoyment of the trip for everyone else and even participate in risky behavior. Part of the issue is that people are in their own rigs (read house) and sometimes intentionally or unintentionally behave in a manner they never would on another type of tour such as a cruise. There are people out there who should never go on a caravan and you probably know who you are. A caravan, especially one in Mexico, is structured and has rules. That is the way it has to be both for the safety and enjoyment of everyone. If you feel you cannot follow any rules, then we prefer you do not sign up.

On nearly all caravans, people are reasonable and co-operative, so there is seldom an issue.

Rule #1: The Wagon Master is in charge. Period !! The Wagon Master makes all decisions and is the only one to deal with our tour contractors on the road. They are open to suggestions, not orders.

Rule #2: Trying to short circuit the Wagon Master, doing things such as trying to bribe contractors to alter itineraries, or bribing them to take your dog along, and those sort of things are grounds for expulsion from the caravan.

Rule #3: Keep drinking under control especially on evenings before a travel day.

Rule #4: Park in the RV park, in the spot the Wagon Master allocates

Rule #5: Retain your spot in the group on the road as much as possible. Do not try to take over control from the Wagon Master. It is not tolerated.

Rule #6: Do not bribe police. If stopped, let the Wagon Master or Green Angels deal with it.

Rule #7: If in an accident, do not move your rig. Follow the Wagon Masters instructions.

Rule #8: If you decide to go off on your own for a day trip, tell the Wagon Master where you intend to go and your estimated time of return. Have a cell phone.

Rule #9: Be ready to leave at the time scheduled the evening before.

Rule #10: Do not wander off on a tour (go to an ATM for eg) without letting the tour guide or Wagon Master know.

Rule #11: Anyone caught with firearms or non prescription drugs (except over the counter) will be expelled immediately. This includes marijuana, which is in the process of becoming legal in Mexico, but can still cause issues with the police.

Rule #12: Everybody sticks together unless instructed otherwise by the Wagon Master. For example during a breakdown. We do not leave customers alone with no support.

Rule #13: A GPS can be notoriously innaccurate in Mexico and not RV friendly. They may be useful if you get separated or lost, but the Wagon Master knows the way, not your GPS

 

Very Important

This is related to Rule #8. Please be aware that if you leave the caravan without the express permission of the Wagon Master, you will be expelled from it, with no compensation. This is related to safety and stress on the Wagon Master worrying about the safety of someone who has departed on a temporary basis. This does not mean you have to ask permission to go for dinner at a restaurant, go to the store or laundry, and that sort of thing. It refers to heading off on your own to another RV park or location. As long as the Wagon Master has provided the OK, you may rejoin the caravan further on, but you have to be aware that while you are gone, you are 100% on your own. This is covered in the waiver you sign. You should inform the Wagon Master where and when you intend to rejoin so he can properly plan for tour numbers and RV spots. Keep in regular touch with him by cell.
