Hwy 407 Ontario Tolls

Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with taking a class C on the 407 across Toronto? Looking at their toll calculator it seems that you must have a transponder if over 5000 kg GVW. Not looking forward to doing the 401 route but the apparent cost and associated penalty for non transponder are making me wonder. We only use that route about every 3 years so not about to rent a transponder. Their site says 176.00 plus camera charge plus police or MoT fines....

Are you sure RV's aren't excluded? I am sure they are only thinking of commercial vehicles. Also, how would they know? It only takes a picture of the license plate. A big rig would get nailed, not so sure about a Ford based class C.

If all else fails just dont make the trip during the morning or afternoon rush, its actually not that bad if you avoid those time slots. You're ok between 11am and 3pm.

In Ontario RVs are classified as passenger vehicles, and the registration form shows a blank for the GVWR. Commercial vehicles have a weight printed - note that pickup trucks are always classified as commercial in Ontario, so if you travel the highway in a F350 with a big trailer you will likely get an eye-watering toll.

I have travelled the highway a dozen or so times with my 19,000 pound RV and have paid the lowest rate each time, even when towing our F150 or our Focus ST. We do have a transponder, so I canít tell you what happens if you donít have one.

I did it from Ajax to the 400 in a super C with a dealer plate that I was bringing back to Edmonton in April for a friend and he never got anything in the mail. I don't know if it's the same as BC but there I drove on the toll road going to the ferry for Vancouver Island and never got anything in the mail either. I was later told by a friend that lives on the island it was because they don't send them to out of province plates.
Maybe I just got lucky or that is the reason why.

We did the 407 with our class A and toad this summer. It was expensive with no transponder! The billing was interesting, toll plus camera charges. There was a toll for each vehicle/plate plus camera charge for each, then for some reason a 3rd camera charge. ($50 camera charge EACH by the way). Used the online chat and got 2 camera charges dropped, still over $150 for the one trip. Mississauga to Hwy 35. Used 401 on the way back, on a Sunday, it was not too bad even with dropping off our niece at Yorkville mall on the way.

That's what 407 said..Selling that hwy was not a great move by the government but done now. We used the 401 on Monday. Not fun but doable. Such a shame that the long term view is 4 years or less.
