That will be extremely expensive. We just did the Alaska trip and decided to drive the motorhome to Haines Junction from Skagway, and then take the car to Haines for a 1 day trip. cost was 1/10 that of the ferry Haines Junction is on the way to the rest of Alaska.
Haines is a nice 1 day trip and make sure you go to the old military post while there

To answer your question, yes, you can take both on the ferry. You will be asked to disconnect the towd. The above link will give you prices. We did that part of our trip in June and had no issues just showing up, but I cannot tell you about July.

We stayed in this campground and I highly recommend. It is very nice as you can see in the pictures and it is a nice walk into town.

Absolutely !! One of the VERY BEST spots we visited on our way out of Alaska was Haines, and after spending a wonderful time there, we put our then 40' MH and tow car on the ferry for the short hop over to Skagway before continuing our road trip South.

We'd been staying at the Hitch-up RV park in Haines and just North of town is the ferry terminal where we stopped in and got tickets for the trip to Skagway. Cost in 07 was $260.00 total for rig, separated car and two adults and WELL worth not having to drive back up to Haines Jct. then East toward Whitehorse then down to Skagway. The ferry loaded VERY early in the a.m. so they told us to bring rig and tow into terminal parking area the evening before departure (lanes marked to line up for loading) and to spend night there. Had to have tow car ready to load (ie. disconnected) AND, if you have propane it needs to shut OFF when inspector comes by just before loading as propane tank and bay will have a seal affixed by the inspector. Then loading was very easy....just meticulously follow the hand directions of the seamen/deckhands loading the vehicles. No problem. Trip over was enjoyable and off loading also easy. OH...wife drove our tow car loading and unloading while I drove the rig. All was very smooth.

Hope this helps, and we'd strongly recommend spending time in Haines.
