Importing a vehicle with temporary Dutch Plates

Hello Everybody,

We are a couple from Belgium and are planning on a year long trip through south America, starting from Uruguay.

We have bought our motorhome in Holland and it currently has temporary number plates along with a temporary insurance. We intend to import the vehicle into South America through Montevideo, Uruaguay and would like to sell our motorhome at the end of our trip in Mexico.

Following are the questions we have:
1. Once imported into South America, the number plate will be invalid, should we re-register our vehicle in Uruguay?
2. If yes, what are the costs & complexity associated with re-registration in Uruguay? Can we travel through out South America with Uruguay-an number plates?
3. If not, can we continue to keep the Dutch number plates?
4. At the time of sale in Mexico, can we sell our motorhome to the future owners (with uruguay-an number plates/dutch number plates)
5. How can our motorhome be transferred locally?

Please share your experiences with us.
