We (two Autotrails - one a Mohawk the other a Comanche) have just returned from Poland. We were there in May this year for ten days and travelled to Poznan, Auschwitz, Krakow, Zakopane on motorways and other main roads.
At Poznan there was three other Autotrails (all of a similar size)who on leaving Poznan headed north and east in Poland so between us we covered a lot of the country.
We investigated before we set off and were ready to pay tolls or for a box - whichever was needed.
We paid the tolls (which were very reasonable) and not once were challenged about having a box and so paid the tolls accordingly.
European countires do charge tolls or require larger vehicles to have boxes - and we all know that. There is lots if information available (particularly on this site and others which may not be the official source but gives a good idea of what is needed).
I agree the costs incurred were excessive and some degree of leniency could have been shown but just because a country decides to charge tolls or require a box don't let it out you off going to Poland.
Poland is a lovely country, very reasonable cost of living and the people we met were great - we would recommend it to anyone.
