Saying NY is being a bit vague.
There are at least 7 toll authorities in NY State.
The NY Thruway will give you the RV rate is proven by a registration. You will need that pass.
They count axles and height after the first axle to charge tolls.
A pickup truck towing a trailer gets car/ trailer rate.
A pickup truck towing a fith wheel gets a commercial rate because it sees over 7 feet, before the second axle. Needs an RV pass.
Class A and Cs with cabover need an RV pass.
All of the other toll authorities don't care what you got. The just charge by the axle. Last trip over the GWB on I95 cost $60.00.
I bag the car pass, display my blue one and get yelled at by the collector on the Throgs Neck bridge. She says blue is for trucks.
The first time I used the white ( car ) pass in the MH, on the Thruway, they shut it down. I then just went thru the high speed lanes and got charged for the toad. That was the plate they got a picture of.
$18.20 for the whole road was cheaper then the MH and Toad for 6 exits.
I love New York.
