Morocco with bike and truck

Hi I am thinking of going to Morocco.I would like to bring my Toyota Hilux and have my motorcycle on the back.
Will I have to tempoary import the bike and the truck, fill in 2 lots of forms ?
The bike could be on the back of the truck hidden from view when entering the country but when I leave the country I expect to be stopped by customs who might want to see import papers for the bike.
My insurance for both vehicles is only valid in europe, Will I have to buy insurance for both vehicles at the boarder.
What is the cost of insurance for a truck in Morocco for 1 month.
Any other problems I could encounter by having a truck and bike.
Thanks

I did the same as you are intended in May 2007 with my Nissan Navara Outlaw with Honda XR400 in the back. Both vehicles were entered on the same temporary importation form so there was no way I could leave the country with just one vehicle.

In theory you'll need border insurance for both vehicles. See info in the knowledgebase in my signature.

This is not an unusual problem. In addition to the vehicle papers (which everyone needs to have with them), you will need a letter from your company authorising you by name to take the vehicle. Ideally have a version of this in French as well.

HI ... you can ussually enter Morocco with a car on someone's else registration

Mauritania and Mali they don't mind at all.

anyway .. It would be usefull to get ready some sort of "authorisation from the owner") for the Moroccan border
