Sorry for posting here for Southern Belize. I have been trying to register on the Belizeforuns.com site, but the verification emails never come through. I have emailed both the forum support and NaturalLight Productions about this but have had no response so I am not sure they are getting my emails.

We are a family planning on relocating to the Toledo District and have a lot of questions starting with driving from the US to Belize in our van towing a small utility trailer (Costco special with an enclosed wood box that we built). We are hoping to find a longer term rental near PG sometime around the first of July but our schedule is not firm yet.
Any information that we can get ahead of time will be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone knows how to contact the folks running the belizeforum.com site to let them know we are trying to register there, that would be great if you could drop them a note about it.
Thanks in advance.

Just a quick note until you get squared away with the Belize Forum folks.

You might need to get a permit to bring (the wood box you built on the trailer) into the country.

John P on that board has excellent driving through MX instructions.

You should have no problems finding a rental there once your plans are firmer.

Hi Wizardofaahs,

Thanks for this information. How would we get a permit to bring the wood box trailer into the country and what are the requirements for that? I only just read something about getting approval for anything wood being brought into the country.
Very much appreciate the heads up on that. It would be a bummer to get there and not be allowed to bring the trailer in!
Do you know of another active forum that would be useful for Punta Gorda or anything? I still have not heard from anyone on the other forum, but being the weekend, they may not get an email until next week I would guess.

robbelize - thanks for the info. We don't have a Facebook account. No interest in that. I will continue my search.
Thanks for the info though - I appreciate it.
