Coach net Vs Good Sam

New to this site. I have a Good Sam membership, just learned about coach net.
Kind of wild to have a vehicle without a spare.

Pros and cons??

Welcome! Spare tire is a oft discussed topic. Opinions on both sides of the street. Suggest to use the search feature to find already existing threads.

I had Good Sam--- was towing a trailer behind the motorhome and had a bearing failure on the trailer. Called Good Sam... they told me to look at the small print where it said the trailer wasn't covered. I switched to Coach Net, where they do cover trailers and any other vehicle you may be in .

Nothing for nothing but you screwed up. Coach Net will not tow it either and all vechiles are not covered unless you have their Premier plan. Same with Good Sam you need their Platinum plan. It's printed in big bold letters on both of their web sites what each plan does and doesn't cover.

If you have either plan and have a blow out. You don't need to carry a spare.
They will have one brought to you. But you do have to pay for it.

Carry a spare with you and after 10 years it is not needed. You need to buy another one to carry with you. A waste of $$$ gone. Could have used the $$$ to buy one delivered to you if needed.

I had to buy one from a service truck one time. And it was cheaper then what I paid a dealer later for the other replacements each.

That was in September 2004 when the last of 2 Michelin zipper blow outs happened. Haven't had any with G670's Goodyear tires.

This is true, I needed help with my trailer on a spare and no issue with Good Sam since I have the RV Platinum Plan, which also covers my Harley and all of my personal vehicles. Coach Net also overs a more comprehensive plan similar.

Howdy!

I've had both Good Sam ERS and Coach Net. Without a dough Coach Net is the best.

I had the truck tire place throw one of the old tires in the basement. I'll lug it around for a while, but I know as soon as I take it out, I'll get a flat.

I've had GS ERS for several years, have needed them twice, 1st time on interstate in MO, blow out on ps rear tire. Service Truck arrived after reasonable time with new tire. Jacked up MH replaced inside rear tire, no service fee for 60 mile round trip and tire change. Paid for that year's mbrshp fee. Used again in Sep. for tow to repair shop for fuel leak. I'm pretty sure that last year's mbrshp was paid for.
