Bring it back to the USA. RVs are almost non-existant in Mexico in case you haven't noticed, so everything "RV" will need to be imported - expensive.

Will it fit inside a semi-trailer, maybe with the wheels removed and the body chocked up? Either that or put it on a flatbed trailer and ship it to southern California, Arizona or Texas IMO. The cost of doing this will be repaid, and then some, compared to TRYING to rebuild it south of the border IMO.
