Toll roads are more of an East coast problem.
Those parts of the east coast are so density packed you can probably find what you need with out getting on the toll road.

My point of reference would be that we have no toll roads in AR and a roof rack is about the same price as a cheap trailer from Lowes or Harbor Freight. Yakima and the like wants 400 for a RACK! And unless someone knows a better brand... frankly its a piece of **** that doesn't fit securely whatsoever. So I think a trailer would be a more peace of mind way to travel with less effort.

Were things built better in the 1950s? $200 at a swap meet.

I've noticed that Paraguayan tourists tend to be more inclined to use racks and roof boxes instead of trailers, while a handful of Argentinians still use trailers.
