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 use streets and trips and the Garmin software to plan most of my routes. In doing so I select the option to avoid toll roads.

I don't mind the ones that only charge a couple of bucks but the ones that charge me $15 or $20 really tick me off. The other part is they are on Interstate Highways that were paid for by our taxes. So we are getting to pay for it twice and still very little highway improvements.
