How much are the tolls for a fifth wheel? any different from a tag a long? I guess my question is do they charge more for a fifth wheel on the highway?

Tolls are generally charged by the axles-it doesn't matter how you are coupled.Most likely
you would be charged for four axles for toll.You could,however have a single axle 5th wheel,then you would pay for three axles.

In the Houston area, the Harris County Toll Road Authority (HCTRA) charges tolls based on the number of axles as Rich stated. In that regard, if the number of axles is the same, there would be no difference between a TT and 5th wheel.

I noticed your in up state NY. Last time I was up in that area, bridges I crossed charged by the tire. So If you have dually you will pay for the extra rear tire as well. Deleware Memorial bridge, GW Bridge are like that.

If you cross the Mackinaw Bridge you'll need to take out a loan. They also charge for the extra tire, maintenance on the bridge (it really needs something done to it)people that work there and anything else they can think of.

On the Pennsylvania Turnpike, tolls are determined by weight class. Each axle is weighed as you pass through the toll booth. The sum of the axle weights is used to determine what weight class you fall into.
