Roadside Assistance

What would be the best roadside assistance that one can get now. Would it be AAA, Good Sam or someone else that would provide great service if need to be towed or just changing out a flat tire.

Coach net gets an A+

First hand experience just yesterday with Coach Net and they proved fantastic. We had just purchased a newer coach from a private seller, only got about 2 miles down the road and wham! Hose blew and engine just down. Safely coasted to a side road and called Coach Net. Within 15 minutes tech called us back, diagnosed the problem and they contacted a tow company. We had just taken out the Coach Net RA the day before! The entire time was a few hours but canít imagine trying to do it without their help.

Also check with your insurance carrier. Many offer roadside assistance, as mine does.

Been with Coachnet since '99 and have used them for a tow only once. The driver I had was very professional but it is the luck of the draw. A lot of it depends on where you are located. Just because a driver shows up within 15 minutes doesn't really prove anything other than the truck was close by and available. Sometimes they are very busy and it could be hours before a truck is available. It doesn't make any difference on whose service you have, time is not a good indicator

I've had Good Sam several years ago and moved to CoachNet a few years ago when they added tech support and had a promotional low price. I had good service experiences with both, albeit never using the coachnet tech support.

However CoachNet did do me badly, I think, last year. I had inadvertently lapsed service by a couple few weeks and they charged $249 to reinstate rather than the $149 annual renewal. Treated me as a new customer. This irked me...

I recently subscribed to the new offering from FMCA for just $69/year - and you can lock that rate for three years by prepaying.

The one and ONLY experience I had with coach-net was NOT the least bit positive. They dispatched a tow truck you'd use to hook-up to a passenger car, not a 38' diesel pusher. This was AFTER I told their customer service person several times what they would be towing and where it needed to be towed to. When I called them back to tell them they'd need to dispatch a suitable tow vehicle, they wanted to argue and said the F350 with a winch was capable of towing my 28,000-pound motorhome. After talking with several different people at coach-net, the "light" finally came on for them and they did dispatch a large enough rig to get the job done, this after a 5-hour tug of war.

We have AAA and have had used them a number of times and it always seemed to work out well. Also my insurance carrier has roadside assistance but you have to pay up first and they reimburse you. Another plus with AAA is they have all sorts of maps, books, and deals available for free or reduced cost. They will also get you a !0% discount at most campgrounds much like GS.

CoachNet offers a free tow to a garage (you pay repair bill) or a mobile mechanic (you pay for parts only). You get one choice. This is not for accident towing, just break downs.
CoachNet also includes the cars you own.
Here's a link to my experience with them:

We have been AAA members for many years. We added our RV to the membership a few years back. The one time we needed a tow AAA did a very good job. And with a CC that is 42' that is not easy. You need a very big tow truck and someone who knows how to hook it up. They sent a big truck and capable person.
