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.

I was sitting here this morning looking out the window at a large motorhome and realized that on some toll roads it's by the number of axles. A 30,000 lb motorhome has two axles so are they charged the came asa passenger car?
