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.

Cost is a factor, but what is really irritating is having lots of toll booths that slow you down more than if you had gone on a back road.

And one of these days when I they try to charge extra for two more axles that my toad has, I'm going to get out of the rig and unhook it right in the middle of the toll station.
