Around Dallas the toll roads just take your AS license picture and get the information from your state then send you a bill. The rates for pulling a trailer are quite high. Next time I go to Dallas I'll come from the north and stay off the toll roads. I had a thread on this when I came back, but I'm over it now. If you go, check the rates and exists first.

I was looking at the toll rates (I live in MD) and I was surprised at how much more expensive the Nice bridge is compared to the bay bridge. You would have been $24 on the bay bridge with an EZ Pass. Weird.

With my EZ Pass I pay $12 for a round trip on the bay bridge when I head to the beach with Airstream (4 axles). It would be $18 for a "video" toll.

Maryland toll rates

I have mentioned this in the past but think it warrants repeating.

ALL Toll Bridges leaving New Jersey over the Delaware River charge commercial rates for any type of trailer using EZ Pass. Now you can get the difference back if you call your agency but how many even know they have been had.

Howie, I've only encountered this leaving on Rt. 78 using the high speed lane. If I use the toll plaza EZ-Pass they charge me the correct amount. I use this crossing pretty regularly. I haven't used the Del-Mem bridge in a long time and don't recall just how they charged me but I also don't recall there being a conflict on that crossing. I have used the Tappan-Zee bridge a few times but that's NY-NY and no mis-charges there.

When I crossed in June the charge on Rt. 78 into Pa was $2.00

They're funding a bridge improvement project.

I rarely use this route when towing so it doesn't come up that much. Towing with trailers has become a costly trip these past few years. Looks like the Md toll on Rt. 95 is $24 ( 4 axles) and $48 (5 axles)
Care to share this "secret" doable detour. I just got back from a 3 day trip up to NJ and Philly for a long weekend. I used my EZ Pass that I use for my car, will be interested to see what charges show up on my EZ Pass, as I did the EZ Pass only lanes.

Lived in MD 18 years, live in FL now. I can tell you from experience, most people in MD don't notice how much their government charges them or what it does with their money. Next time take a different route.

Install the James Bond Aston Martin revolving license plate on your Airstream. Turn it to an bogus out of state plate when you cross a bridge

OK Doc, here it is: The Delaware $4 car toll is easy. Check google maps you'll see that going southbound you simply get off at the last exit before toll and keep right. I think it's the second traffic light make a left and about another mile +/- another left and you'll go right back to 95 south of the toll plaza. Simply do the reverse for northbound travel.

The Maryland toll is $8 for a car and $24 with a 2 axle trailer ( $48 for a 3 axle). This one is a little longer but not unreasonable. Again, refer to google maps. Northbound, use exit 89 and make a left onto Level Rd. ( MD Rt. 155) and go a couple of miles and make a right onto Darlington Rd. ( MD rt. 161) follow 161 until you get to US 1 and make a right onto US 1 north. Over the Susquehanna R. and make the first right onto Susquehanna River Rd. Follow this along the river and it will take you back to 95 just north of the toll plaza. This route is a bit more time consuming than that for the Delaware toll but hardly a long detour and the benefit is a $24 saving. So if you are in a rush and speed it worth that 95 is your route.

Now Doc, you are sworn to secrecy here. This is privleged information and you can't reveal this information to anyone outside the Airstream community.

I guess I might use the Nice bridge going North, and go South over the Point of Rocks bridge which is free and well above DC congestion.

Since 301 is my alternative to the DC / Balt congestion I see no alternative for that one. Gotta bite the bullet on that route I guess.

How do you bypass Baltimore? The only way that I can think of is to use 301 on the eastern shore of Maryland and then cross the bay bridge in Annapolis. But the bay bridge has a toll too.
Route 3/301 is chocked full of stop lights, especially in Prince George's and Charles counties. I think that I'd rather deal with the traffic on 95 than the stop lights on 301.
