Good Sam Emergency Roadside Assistance or Coach-Net Emergency Roadside Assistance. I've had and used both. Of the two, I prefer Coach-Net.

When I had Good Sam & needed roadside assistance, on more than one occasion, a totally unprepared or under equipped service person/vehicle was dispatched. This was several years ago. I don't have any recent experience with them as I switched to Coach-Net. I've had to use their service several times over the ensuing years without any problems. That's why I always renew my service agreement with them.

While AAA may work in some places, it won't work everywhere. AAA is regional and when you go some place where it doesn't cover rv's you have a problem. I am in N.E. Ohio and they don't cover them here. I found this out when I went to purchase a plan. Now covered with Coachnet and so far good service.

In all the years I have had them, which is since I have been driving, I have only had to use once for a motorhome issue for a blown out tire and I got it taken care of by them in a reasonable time.

A later poster commented on not being good everywhere, but I believe that is not true. I verified that they would cover me on my trip to Canada if I had an issue. I never did have an issue on my MH trip a couple of years ago. I recently got back from a 9500 mile motorcycle trip to Alaska and verified my coverage was good before I left.

I have been with Coach-Net for six years and used them twice. They are very nice to work with, from the service calls they made, to phone assistance, it is first class.

Highly recommend Coach Net. We've been with them since we started fulltiming 10 years ago. 3 calls, 2 for car, 1 for coach. Very efficient and helpful.

I don't believe AAA covers coaches - at least not fulltimers.

Regarding AAA and MH coverage. I can't speak to FT'ers but they do offer RV coverage. It is called Premier and RV coverage. I got it last year after talking to a Tow Truck driver. He has driven Tow Trucks for many years. In his experience AAA was the most professional and easiest to work with of all the Roadside Assistance Services. Our experience with AAA: Looked like we needed a MH tow in Mason City Iowa, they were having a little difficulty getting a truck. Resolved the issue myself after about 50 minutes and cancelled the call. In North Palm Springs, CA had the power steering/power breaks pump fail and needed a tow. Called AAA and 30 minutes later Truck was there. The right type of Truck too. Driver was very professional and efficient. We got a 40 mile tow and there was no charge. Have needed the CRV towed due to failed started and again all went well.

FMCA stopped using Coach Net several years ago they went with a company called Road Assist. They can be found at www.fmca.com/roadassist I had Coach Net for years and fortunately I had not used them. I changed to Road Assist and I hope I never use them.

I just thought I would mention the FMCA program.
