July 27/2013 at Swartz Bay, my truck and trailer is over height and 49 feet long, the truck and trailer is for recreation, and a sign on the truck side glass says "not for hire". The lady in toll booth wants to see the regi for the truck, which shows the truck GVW is 7500 KGs. The truck was empty, the regi shows pleasure only, and she says that I have to pay the commercial rate! $325.00. On the return trip at Tswassen, the lady at toll booth says clearly you are driving recreation vehicle and charges me $255.00. This is clearly a cash grab! Water transportation is not affected by weight, it is affected by space! It is so strange that my truck and trailer occupy the same space as someone being an under height with a travel trailer, and paying much less! And still half empty sailings! Go figure!
