Hello from Serbia!
Yes, you need green card as Serbia is in the Interbiro contract. So you are insured
If you're entering from north from Hungary via Subotica, the tolls are as followed:
Subotica - Novi Sad 12 euro for a van/camper
Novi Sad - Beograd 12 euro
Beograd - Nis 35 euro

so it's not cheap...

Fuel cost: leadless petrol 1,2 euro/liter; diesel 1euro/liter

Road conditions are very good but not worth 60 euros......
All the way you have a lot of restaurants, petrol stations, motels. Serbia is very secure and safe for travel. I assure you. As it is transit country for many foreigners traveling south to Greece, Turkey, etc. Don't worry about safety.
Speed limit for van is 80km/h.

This can help:

To Turkey definitely through Bulgaria. It's much shorter:
Route finder, route planner, directions, journey planner, itinerary, map directions, route finder uk, ViaMichelin
Drive on highway all the way south. Just before Niš turn to Pirot and further to Bulgaria border.

As for tolls "putarina", yes they are expensive and you are category III and the higher rate as you are foreigner... they are shown in local currency "dinar".
The exchange rate is about 80 dinars for 1 euro.

Happy trails and Merry Christmas !!!
