Using I-Pass with camper

I have one of those gizmos you place on your dash when passing through the Chicago area. It automatically pays my tolls as I pass by the toll booths. Iíve never pulled a camper using it before. Will it charge me for the extra axles on the trailer? Do I need to register my camper plates with them as well?

Looks like a quick google search would have your answer.

I-PASS - www.illinoistollway.com

This states that it works normally with the camper attached.

I have one to for the first time cause of some of the beach trips I'm planning. Online, it has a prompt that you list vehicles and license plates you own. It charges you accordingly by axle. I'll see when I try it.

You don't need to register trailer plates, just tow vehicle. Used one for years with a trailer, now with a class C. No problem. Just make sure you have enough balance in your account or auto reload. Vehicle with trailer is a little more than vehicle alone.

Yes the trailer plates need to be registered to the I-pass. I didn't register the trailer at first and I got an email with a picture of the trailer plate saying I owed X amount of $$$! We called and they said the plates need to be registered.

However since then, I rarely use the tollway anymore because I found great alternative back roads or other routes that avoid the IL tollway.

I gather the I-pass counts a pickup or car towing a trailer as a single unit rather than two because the trailer is not self powered?
