A friend has asked me to fly to Mexico to help her drive her van 1,000 miles to the border and then into the US. I've been to Mexico numerous time and never had any problems. Everyone I met there was wonderful.

But I traveled by bus. I'm wondering if driving a "vanlife" van (high roof, short wheelbase, no side windows -- clearly a vehicle someone lives in) would make it a target for theft. FWIW it's not a MB Sprinter. Thanks.
