The Feds aren't shelling out federal highway dollars as they once did. That and states are spending more supporting welfare programs using their own state highway funds. Just about every state has bad interstate highways..we've been from FL to WA and from ME to CA in the last two years. Take the state highways when you can. They may be two lane in most places but they are usually in better shape.

Many sections of the interstate highway system are in terrible shape. I have experienced this first hand as many of you have also.

That's what the tax was initially introduced as. It was a Road Tax.

Like anything else the beauty of throwing the tax into a slush fund called General Revenue became too enticing.

Now the Road Tax is Toll Highways.

The problem with Toll Highways is that they are all foreign owned.

As "glamorous campers" we have priorities:

Floor plan
Camper type
Roads to get there

Foreign investors have only one priority:

Privatization of state property -- still has capital improvements being funded by the state.

This is a really bad situation for us
