Remember 90 across Indiana and Ohio is also a toll road. If you are pulling a Toad, you'll pay for 4 axels, which is one step down from what a semi pays. NY is expensive and I believe 80 across Pennsylvania is now a toll road. They were talking about it a couple years ago as 76 and 81 are both toll roads. One thing you do not want to do is go into NYC over the GW bridge. A class A motorhome towing a car is about $75. You can come out of NYC into NJ free.

Ran that route many times in the semi.

And Rockford is in Illinois not Wisconsin.
PA I-81 is not toll a road. I-476, that mirrors some of the northern section of I-81 is.

I 90 in Ohio, is only a toll road to about 20 miles West of Cleveland where it exits off the Ohio Turnpike (Exit 142).
It is free thru Ohio and Pa.until you enter New York, where it becomes a toll road again.

We had wanted to go the Northern route to visit the Badlands and some of the fossil areas. We decided to lower our sights for a couple of reasons and leave those things for another tour. We went 70,71 then 90. We followed the scenic 2 lane along lake Erie into New York until it ended. It's very pretty and has some nice State parks. This cut out half of the toll routs. Glad we did. We paid $78.99 for just the part we used. As was mentioned before we paid Tractor Trailer rates. It was a less complex and crowded way to go though with better rest stops so not too bad. Shame that they feel that a lighter weight RV being used for recreation should pay the same as a heavily loaded commercial truck but that's government privatization these days. All are sheep to be sheared.

They charge by the axle, not by the pound. Can you imagine the traffic jam if they had to weigh every vehicle going through?

The NYS Thruway charges by the axle and height above the front axle.

More then 7'2" is a big rig.

Huge 5th wheels are charged car/trailer rates. A small motorhome is truck rates.

I-40 bridge over Mississippi River is to open back up around first week in August. Check or Arkansas DOT for timing. Eastbound and westbound were to open a week apart.

If taking I-40 to I-81, avoid going thru downtown Nashville, by taking the I-840 bypass around the south side of the city. Way less traffic, it's all out in the country. Avoid Knoxville at rush hour. Went thru there at rush hour a couple of weeks ago and saw 3-4 different accidents that held up everything.

For those that suggested to go through Canada… can’t go into Canada until late August at the earliest. The NY Thruway is now all electronic. Having an EZ Pass will save you a great deal of dollars and time, particularly if you are going across Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. Yes you can exit I-90 before Cleveland but you will have to navigate Downtown Cleveland and the infamous Deadman’s Curve where 90 meets Ohio 2.
