Additional Roadside Service, or not?

We purchased a 2014 Bounder 35K last month. Right now we have it in indoor storage next to the house, hopefully in February we'll hit the road with the first stop being the dealer for some warranty work.

The new motorhome came with three (or was it five) years of complimentary roadside service. We also have roadside assistance through our insurance company Progressive. On the surface it appears that we have great roadside assistance coverage but I am curious if there is any reason we should consider the service provided by Coach-net or Good Sams? I think that for our first trip to the dealer, 60 miles away, we'll be fine with what we already have. When we leave the dealer and head down the road to who knows where I just want to make sure I'm sufficiently covered.

Thanks in advance,

It depends on what coverage you already have with the other two you mentioned. Can you post those particulars ?

The roadside assistance from my Progressive insurance states

"we will pay for our authorized service representative to provide the following services when necessary due to a covered emergency:
1. towing of a covered disabled vehicle to the nearest qualified repair facility; and
2. labor on a covered disabled vehicle at the place of disablement.
If a covered disabled vehicle is towed to any place other than the nearest qualified repair facility, you will be responsible for any additional charges incurred."

Ford states the following;
"5-Years or 60,000 Miles
Roadside Assistance**
This 24 hour, seven-days-a-week Hotline is a standard
feature on all Ford Motorhome Chassis. By dialing 1-800-
444-3311, Ford Motorhome Chassis Customers also have
access to:
• Flat Tire Changes (No Charge with Ford)
• Jump Start For A Dead Battery (No Charge with Ford)
• Gasoline, If Out of Fuel (No Charge with Ford)
• Vehicle Lock-Out Service (No Charge with Ford)
• Towing To The Closest Dealer (No Charge with Ford"

These two will two only to nearest facility. So I'm curious, is there any extra benefit to Coach-net that I should consider?

Thanks again,

Thanks again,
Damon/David, you should be fully covered with a new coach, however; you can check with Ford to see who handles their emergency roadside service. I have Coach Net and from all accounts, it's near or at the top for service.

Coach Net enlist those that have the necessary equipment ie- LARGE tow vehicles that are qualified to tow your MH. I have AAA also and would not consider using them to tow my coach. Just my .02$!
