I have concluded both from numerous comments on various forums AND from personal experience that CoachNet is the premier roadside service to have with Good Sam a close second. Progressive Insurance is one of the top RV Insurance companies to use too, in my opinion.

We use Good Sam. Fair price and coverage. Can have replacement for the RV included. Beat many others on cost.

We went with Aarp . The Hartford insurance company. They gave us full roadside assistance on both car and rv, but we decided to get Coachnet for the RV

About 40 miles out of Portland on I-5 in one of the worst rain storms that I have been in, down to 35mph heavy rain and fog my coach started to miss thinking it may be fuel filters it would not go over 1000rpm so I changed both filters but it did not change. Thinking it may be an injector or 2 I called Good Sam they sent out a tow truck, there in about 30min. Just before he got there I checked the oil and it looked good BUT out of the corner of my eye I seen the air filter indicator gauge in a full yellow. The tow driver and I pulled the filter cover and we got a bath, it was full of water. He called Cat, no filter in stock then he called Napa they had one so he dispatched another driver to pick it up $87.44 installed it and it ran just fine. With 2+ inch of rain on the freeway I think a semi went by and drowned the side of my coach filling the air intake that is 4'3" off the ground, I would have been OK if the intake was on the crub side. Trying to get off I-5 in a safe place sometimes is hard to do.
This is the first time I have ever had to use Good Sam in 9 years they are great in my book and B.C. Towing out of Salem, Or they are great

As a follow up on this message, thanks so much for input. We've gotten Coach Net. They evidently have a plan that our dealer gives free to new owners, which they gave us. We were able to sign up for that same plan at a lower price than the plans offered on Coach Net's web site. This iRV2 site, for us newbie's to learn from all you guys, is just great. Thanks again

We found that Progressive give you a "teaser" rate the first year and then jacks you up. GEICO is just way out of line in terms of cost. Good Sams (now National General, formerly GMAC) gave us the best rates and coverage by far.

As evidenced by these responses, it seems everyone will get different results.

I found Progressive's rates to be insulting and ended up with GEICO for RV insurance. I don't have experience with GEICO for roadside assistance, but can attest their car claim service is very good. I will probably sign up with CoachNet in the next few weeks.

I have Allied Insurance (a Nationwide company), and they have done right by me on two recent accidents (fire damage and a minor scrap with a tree stump). Costs me $775 a year: collision, comprehensive, liability,....
