Some toll roads consider dual wheels as 2 axles. Some add up all the axles including your toad. So a tag axle MH would be 4 axles. Add the 2 on your toad and you are now a 6 axle truck.

From the west gate in Ohio to the east end ( exit 239) toll is $50.25 (240 miles).

The west gate on the Pennsylvania turn-pike to exit 10 is $30.80 for a drive on the Pennsylvania turn pike of only 9.27 miles. We are exiting there and taking other routes.

It sucks most when they charge a truck camper the same as a full size RV due to the height.

We have been full-time for 8 years and have not been on a toll road yet. We prefer taking US highways.

I travel from Los Angeles area to D.C area every summer. If toll roads get me to my destination quicker I take them. The fuel savings is often offset by the toll. But then again I don’t worry about a few extra dollars.

That's one thing I wish the GPS travel apps did is show you comparison of toll vs time saved (without having to turn it on and off and manually calculate the difference)

5 min on a 3hr drive...I'll avoid the tolls.

1 hr on a 3hr drive, I'll happily pay an extra $10.

I believe Pa turnpike tolls are going up again on January 1, so it will cost you even more. It will go up 6% for all vehicles.
Just the other day we made a quick trip down to Philly and back. We got on in wilkes Barre and off in Langhorn, $15.35 one way with a car.

Most stand alone GPS units allow you to do this very easily. All you do is change the settings from "avoid toll roads" to "fastest route". Then it will give you the mileage and "estimated" time of arrival. The arrival time is based on the speed limits which are sometimes not accurate for an RV but it still only takes a couple of seconds to find out the difference between taking the toll road and avoiding it.
