Lloyd,

So that we may be able to help, you need to tell us what a "40 diesel pusher" is.

And, what is wrong that it is not driveable.

Lloyd.  Sorry for your situation.

We need a lot more info...Year, make of coach, where in Mexico?  Mexico has a lot of owners of DP's and they don't come here for service and parts!  Your Mex Insurance will not be paying, so forget about that.

Why not call FMCAssist. While a transport of a disabled RV is not covered, concierge service/information is. They probably can provide information.

Thanks guys for the interest. the coach is a 40 ft beaver monterey  it is in a wreckers yard  in Los moches sinaloa .

The front cap and windshield are gone as well as entry door basement doors etc,hard to know about frame damage etc.

Does this help?

And, depending on year model and possible frame damage,  and cost of return to the U.S. it may be totaled.

I would definitely be visiting with your insurance agent as well as looking up NADA retail values, etc.

Also, ask for recommendations on a good repair shop and send them enough pictures (that you can share with you insurance company) to make an accurate assessment before moving forward.

You said front cap is damaged/gone, is there still the possibility that a wrecker could pick up the front, remove the drive line and tow it on the rear wheels? Might be a lot cheaper to get it towed rather than having a specialized trucking firm tow it on a lowboy.... you are still going to have height issues on a very LOW boy trailer with your 12' coach sittingng on top!

LloydW, This website may be useful in one way or another: https://usedrvparts.visonerv.com/cgi-bin/c/rvsalvagemotorhomes-partingout.pl

If your MH it totaled, it might be a place to sell, then again it might be a source of replacement parts if your MH is repairable.

They may even be able to haul your MH back into the U.S.A. Their semi-trailer is visible in some of the pictures, a low-boy roll-back wrecker trailer. If I remember correctly, my insurance co. will re-reimburse me for a covered expense incurred in Mexico, after the fact, when I present the proper itemized bill.  Ask your agent, the worst they can do is say no.

I have been to Los Mochis several times...in a corporate jet, not a MH.  I would be extremely cautious of doing any high dollar business with virtually any company down there.  Most of the vehicles down there are old, run down and not worth much.  I saw no big time maintenance facility or any kind of business capable of hauling a 40' DP anywhere.  Does Good Sam to any business in Mexico?

Thanks for the interest guys. It is apparent from the replies that no one had any ideas for my original question. Does Anyone have knowledge of trucking firms that might do this work.

No, sorry, no recommendation, and that is with more than 50,000 miles SOB (South Of The Border). 

What does your insurance company come up with.  Ball should be in their court if you are covered AND there is no repair  they recognize where you are).

You might try checking with companies on the US side of the border who import agriculture equipment from Mexico. I spend some time last year In Juarez and saw several truck loads of new and used farm equipment on lowboy trailers that could transport your MH.
