If it’s any help, we are 4500kg and 10’2” high. Last year most pay tolls gave us class 2 as standard in France every time we got to the auto booths (there seemed to be very few staffed booths this time).
As does Dartford here, yet the Widnes/Runcorn crossing is class 3.

I just looked on ATMB website and I think I know why I didn`t spot that limit of >3.5 ton ............
The whole website is in FRENCH, who`d have thought it, and there`s no option to select the internationally recognised superior language of English.
Suppose I could do it bit by bit in Google translate, gonna take a while

@Sabino Thanks for that, I can`t see anywhere where it mentions weights etc.
When I go to My Account it changes to French :(

I wouldn’t bother with it.
We are 5200kgs tag 3.24m high and got charged a different class at every toll we went through.
Had I had the pass, I’d have ended up paying the full class 4 cost, so probably double the cost in tolls.
Save yourself the cash and go to the normal booth and press the button and Je suits camping car SVP

When driving our RV plus trailer through France and using the correct tag we would have been class 4, expensive! So we chose to always stop at the barrier and pleed :), >80% of the time we were given class 2 or sometimes 3. If you're in a large camper. our view is to ask. They can only say "non"

For our new PVC we have Liber-T :D

Think I'll just stick with the ATMB toll box.
Didn't use it last year as I went south through Belgium and Germany and doubt I'll use it this year much.

But if you were under 3m but (say) 4.25t gvw, you might well get away with a Classe 2 tag - just saying!!
