I live in NY and have 2 separate transponders. One is for my tow vehicle only when not pulling the trailer. The other is for the vehicle and TT combined. They are both registered to the same account. Thankfully, they are color-coded to avoid confusion. My TT transponder is blue and the standard one is white. I've had both for a long time now (since 2009), so they may use different methods for new enrollments.

Have had a PA EZ Pass for many years. At first we had only 1 and traded between Vehicles. Too much hassle, ordered a second one. I now have used the one in the TV in all of the states listed. Both without and with the TT. The system has never failed to pick the correct combo. (although I had always hoped it would ). I only have the TV listed and both types (high speed pass thru & traditional tollbooth w EZPass) have worked.
If i were in you shoes, I would order one. You may not get full discounts in every state as some want you to use theirs. i.e. PA gives a higher discount when using 'their' EZPass and use on the PA Turnpike. You will still get a discount but not as much. As mentioned it is tied to your Credit Card so no worry about having enough cash on hand.

Here's a response from PA E-ZPass on the question about towing a travel trailer:

Quote:
You can add a trailer to your vehicle. The system will weigh the vehicle and count the number of axles to charge accordingly. Please be sure to register the trailer to your account before traveling. Thank you.
That would seem to be a fairly definitive answer. Only one transponder should be needed, as long as the TT is also registered to your E-ZPass account.

Now for testing it, which I won't be doing until an April trip to NJ in the family car, and our TV/TT rig going to Maine in June...

Lots of good responses. Thanks for the input! I'll be getting the pass, I just have to figure out which state offers the better deal. So far I'm leaning toward purchasing through Illinois but I need to look at the other states also.

I heard from a very trusted source that there is a bug in the MA EZPaaS system where if you register every trailer license plate you have against your main transponder account, the system will only charge you for two axles. Works in MA, NH, and ME.

Again, so I heard...I would never do this myself because it's wrong to cheat the state out of $0.50

Wouldn't that be interesting?

Very interesting indeed. I'd say more but for all I know a representative from EZPass owns a Jayco and is on this forum ahahahaha

Ought to be interesting, Tom. Only thing I know for sure is that I'll be using my new E-ZPass in PA, NJ, NY, DE, NH and ME over the next couple of months. Guess I'll find out.

Investigating this I would NOT get an EZ Pass.
Mine, from Maine, will work with a TT
But when we get to Mass, we find that the TT has to be on our account and we must use the multimodal lanes ( cash and Ezpass).

So where did the time efficiency go?

As usual Mass ( an Ez Pass latecomer.. they continued to use their own Fast Pass for years) is not keeping up.

All EZ Pass states do NOT operate the same. I won't check out the others because Mass is a roadblock for me.

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

Kim & Tom,
Thanks for the info. I have not had issues in the past with MA & EZPass but I prefer to stay out of that State for multiple reasons. Now I have another reason.
Guess I'll be heading to Maine in Sept by way of NY, VT, & NH
My Transponder has been in 3 different TV since 2000. I have hauled Popups, Cargo Trailers, a Boat (w/single Axle), and now 2 larger TTs. I have headed West to Colorado 2 times (both times on Rt.80) and multiple trips to MD,VA, NC, SC & FL. Also Trips north. EZPass always worked with & without a trailer. I just picked up a new FW and used the PA turnpike twice and no issues. I guess I'm in technical violation by not notifying the state of every change, BUT each State has always gotten their correct toll.
