The Garden State Parkway does allow trailers being pulled by cars. However
the toll is doubled for two axle trailers, and $.50 for single axle
(instead of $.35) 

I agree the Parkway is beautiful and the Turnpike is ugly as the Turnpike
goes through the industrial corridor that stretches from Philly to NYC.
Jersey is quite nice once you are out of the corridor.  But note the two
roads go different places. Also note that yes we try to keep you Pensy's
out. That sign "Where America begins" is an insult to the states east of
Pa. What are we chopped Liver?
