    If i were to load up my truck with my DR's, would I have to pay for them as well as my truck when entering a national park?

    I dont want to have to buy three stickers :eek1

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. Wasnt sure.

    Get the annual all parks pass and make the question moot.

    yeah but the only thing i can see is that the vehicle and passengers are admitted, what about bikes? what about when they're off the trailer?

    The pass is for the person, a person with the person, and whatever means the person has with them for transiting the park. You carry the pass in your pocket. I'm with the understanding you can use that pass to drive an RV, 3 cycles, and a midget spy submarine into any national park.

    Ah, here we go:
    Edit: it looks like the definition hinges upon "single vehicle" Since you can only pilot one at a time, you may be covered dpending on your uses.

    When I tow the Jeep behind the motorhome I pay for one entry fee and get a second sticker for the Jeep as long as it's under tow. I unhooked ONCE before going in, had to pay for two.

    Wait 'til the entry station is closed for the day and you won't have to pay for any.

    I don't take medicine. You would think I have paid for my share of the national parks considerin' the hundreds of thousand of dollar I have paid in federal taxes so far. I suppose if they were concerned they would have the toll booth open 24 hours. I bet you don't cheat on your income tax either.

    No and my parents are proud of the job they did. My integrity is worth more than a little pocket money.

    I was not charged extra to enter Yellowstone hauling my F650GSD with the Versa-hauler on the back of my Suburban...

    I was charged when I rode it out, though...

    At Joshua Tree My wife was driving the truck and trailer and I was right behind her on my bike. She told them I was with her and they were still gonna charge me for entering. So we pulled off right by the booth and loaded the bike on the trailer, went through, paying for one vehicle, then unloaded the bike right afterwards and continued on our merry way.

    silly stuff.
