We live up here in Canada...and have never had to use the roadside assistance....touch wood. Has anyone ever used Good Sam club assisatance up here and if so did you have any problems getting help..I realize that down in the states camping world is everywhere but they are not up here.

I am already a club member but it is time to renew my assistance benifits, but with never having to use it up here, is it worth the money to purchase coverage?? We travel alot in the USA and reaize the assistance will be better and that is why we have it when we come down....but how about up here..

Just wondering

We've used CAA for years for coverage for all our vehicles, so when we bought the coach we paid extra for CAA Plus RV. We've never used it for the RV. We also have Coach-Net. A couple of years ago we had a problem in Cranbrook, BC. We called Coach-Net and they made arrangements for a technician from a local Freightliner shop to come to our coach and get us going. We were very pleased with their response to our problem.

We were stuck with bad gas we purchased from FasGas in Sicamous BC. We got to the top of the pass above Revelstoke just before the first of the snow sheds. Good Sam arranged for a truck to come out, load our 24 footer aboard and haul us back to Revelstoke for repairs.

This was on the Labour Day weekend on Highway One three years ago. I was more than pleased with everything they did for us including asking if we were OK for drinking water because she checked the weather network somehow and knew it was blistering hot right where we were. Nothing but praise for the young lady we talked with throughout the ordeal. Above and beyond in our estimation.

I carry an unmounted spare, and recently called Coach-Net to ask if they would mount this in a flat tire situation. Their answer was that there would be a charge by the individual service provider. While this could be expensive, it's still better than having to buy a new tire; possibly in a remote location, or not even having one available.

Anyone know how Coach-Net handles unmounted spare?

Over the years we have had Allstate, (poor srvice), Coach Net, and Good Sam. Our Good Sam experience was on a Christmas Day and we were stuck in our daughter's driveway. When I called GS I got a recording telling me that if I was in danger I should call the local Police and call GS back the next day. Her neighbor got a new John Deere tractor that Christmas and he was out towing everyone out of the snow that day for fun. My daughter & SIL got Good Sam last summer when they got a MH. They broke down 90 miles from home. Good Sam sent 3 trucks before they got one that could handle a 35' Bluebird, Coach-Net knows what the RV is and sends the appropriate equipment.

In 11 years we have made three calls. The towing charges would have exceeded $3,000 easily.

So we paid about $1,000 for $3,000 in service charges. Seems to have been a good deal.

I find that strange. When I had a flat, the serviceman, sent by GS, used my unmounted spare and made the change with no charge!</p>
