Default NJ Parkway, can you trailer a boat?

I want to avoid the GW Bridge in NJ/NY. I was thinking taking coming over the Tappen Zee to the Parkway and then hitting the turnpike further south.

I called the NJ State Police a couple years back about trailering a boat on the GSP and they said no problem.

Thanks for the info guys.

What about E-Z pass? Can that be used too with a trailer in tow?

Just make sure your ballz are coated with steel before the trip. The parkway has more nut jobs on it than just about any other stretch of roadway in America

Towed my CIG and towed my Father's Wellcraft back with no permits- 9'10" and 13'2" high. Clearance is 13'6" under some bridges - I **** myself when we went under the first one.

We used the EZ-Pass Express lane. Worked well, but we ultimately got 3 or 4 fines of $35 each. Not sure why but we paid them and kept our mouth shut. The fine would have been much larger had some adept toll operator noticed the width....

LMAO! I towed my old boat up to Long Island once, talk about white knuckles, The Goethals Bridge was the worst, the BQE was no picnic either.
