I agree that all these disjointed systems are a pain in the ....
Poland has a type of 'Go-Box' (ViaToll) for over 3500kg and charges via ganty-mounted roads, both Motoways and Trunk roads.
There are some Motorways with different toll booths for cars and ViaToll boxes.
Our MH was originally plated at 3500kg. We have used the Toll booths on the A4 Motorway for 6 years and never been questioned about our current weight. I believe that there are occasional weight checks but I believe they are aimed at overweight trucks not private vehicles, however have never seen a check-point.
I was informed by family Police contacts 3 years ago that there is no connection between the Polish authorities and DVLA.
We travel to Slowakia frequently but do no need toll roads where we go.
I will avoid Czech Rep, as we cannot get there easily without Motorways or negotiating mountain roads - too much hassle.
We may need to go through Austria next year and will get a GoBox, as I believe the Austrians do stop MHs to check weight.
