Not used to east coast rv-ing. Out west, tollroads seem to be far and few between but have just about been tolled to death in Pennsylvania and New York. Total over $50 in tolls between Niagara Falls and Saratoga Springs on two highways! It would be OK if the roads were in great condition, but they aren't, they aren't..... Was told at the toll booth that "you're charged like trucks". Well, I don't think my fifth wheel puts the wear and tear on the highway that trucks do and besides, I'm here spending tourism bucks, especially with diesel at $4.05 on the tollroad (it's been as low as $3.60 other places). I'll have to say that tolls like this definitely will be a factor in where we spend next season traveling.

Welcome to the NE! smile.gif

When we go through the area I plan carefully to avoid the expensive areas. I fail to see why my small truck with a 22 foot trailer should cost more than a 10 wheeler truck or a greyhound bus on these roads. With a little research I found a way to go south of Washington DC with paying only for a short stretch of toll road from Albany, NY to Kingston, NY. It takes me just 1 hour longer than I95, is a few miles shorter, thus saving me some gas money as well as over 40$ in tolls. And 40$ per hour is not a bad salary for a retired guy!
