Plan your trip to miss the Sydney Expressways @Bluey , last month mate drove from Pacific Hwy to Hume and got slugged $46 in tolls....$100 round trip is just BS....over 14mts long and over 2.8mt high gets commercial rate......................................... I think I would come up inland and use the Golden Hwy...

He travelled the M2 and M7 travelling from north to south joining the Hume to headback to Victoria, the thing is doesn't matter what tollway, you will get charged commercial rate towing a van, the bridge only charges a flat rate and if your coming up the Princess I think its only $14 for the M5, https://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/sydney-motorways/toll-charges/index.html
Bloody ripp off anyway.

My understanding is it's basically anything over 12.5m in length OR 2.8m high.

The vehicles in class A (car rate) have to be less than 2.8m high AND less than 12.5m long.

Here is the definitive information:

Thats the link I posted, if you read the fine print you will see how they manage to make a car with van into Class B, all in the axles......A dig around the site explains a vehicle towing a trailer is counted as a whole unit.

Ive been asked how high my van is standered answer .... i dont know do you want me measure it im driving do i pull over i havent got a tape measure ......is it over a certin hight ??? Na couldnt be its just a caravan not a truck .... this seems to work every time i only get charged a few bucks each way ..... the bridge is only paid one way north bound i think and we get a casual pass that lasts untill we come home
We go eastern distributor over bridge and lane cove tunnel
