You should run a caravan business, You'll make millions! Or cover your gas maybe :-)

But since you asked...
3,000+ km of fuel to show you around, +wear and tear on my truck and trailer.
Camping fees for a month for you and for me to show you around
I might need to eat once in a while while showing you around Baja
Lots of Margaritas after having to deal with sassy Nomads
Hauling your destroyed tire into town to get it fixed so you don't die on the side of the road.
Showing you how to get across the border and back, FMMs, TIPs etc.
Helping you pass that 30 kmh dump truck without dying
Showing you how to get water that you can drink, and water to clean with
Taking you to the Taco stands that likely won't give you a week of the puking mega chits.
etc etc. For some people that weren't born knowing everything it works out well.

You should be a guide my friend.. you will be so rich lol. Just kidding, actually nobody gets rich doing this.

Probably the hardest part of the job; I've considered guiding tours and decided babysitting isn't my cup of tea.

How many vehicles are going to be involved in this thing?

5 or 6 plus me an the sassy woman. It's getting hard in Baja to run big tours. Plus too many people takes away from the experience. 8 is our max.

We are not in the market for this sort of Baja experience - no RV suitable, but

This is the nicest layout for a trip I've seen! Plenty of rest days, I'd say it's really well-thought-out either for the Baja novice or experienced RV'r in Baja.

I don't believe the price is high, I'd say it's pretty much on point, showing as you say, it ain't gonna make you a rich man!

Good luck, happy traveling.

Bajawinters, my hats off to you, no thanks even at that reasonable price. I've taken a few moto groups and that was enough for me. You find out real fast that people don't have the skills they said they had or were required! I changed a few flats for guys that " change tires all of the time", they drive them to a shop and have them changed. Only learned this after his third time pinching his tube!
No my friend you keep the "millions" your making herding cats in Baja and I'll raise a beer to you!

I hate caravans and those too frightened to explore on their own. First experience with a caravan was a 5ver outside SI, playing catch up because he had fallen behind, and side swiped my RV.

No matter how much instruction these clowns get, they will be nervous nellies driving 1.

Add psyche counseling to the menu for these guys. 8 max. 4 too many.

I have never gone caravanning but I think it would be a hoot! Have a blast and if you ever have a chance, I recommend exploring La Bocana! Off the beaten track, very low key, excellent restaurant that can accommodate big groups with prior notice. We have a large area in front of the hotel where vehicles can park. Maybe you could come first to scope it out and see if it works?

For $5 per person, you have access to 2 outside bathrooms and one outside shower. The best part according to those who have stayed with us, is the view of the Pacific, sounds of birds singing and waves gently breaking and ospreys either building their nests, feeding their young ones or eating their fish.

Tough life!

There can be a social aspect to caravanning that adds to the adventure. My mom and dad spent most winters on the road exploring desert areas during the 70s and 80s, and many times it was part of a caravan.

My dad drove trucks for many years, and knew his way around the south west and Mexico, so he wound up being "wagon master" more than a few trips. My mom was a world class conversationalist, and loved the gatherings of like-minded travelers in the evenings.

I don't want to travel with more than a couple of other vehicles on a long trip, but it used to be something my folks and many other people looked forward to.

I hope you have a great run on this adventure!
