The reason for someone like Coachnet/Goodsam services is that they take charge from the first phone call............and unless you step outside of the agreement, there is no charge to you.
A breakdown seems to cause a lot of confusion/loss of thinking on ones part on just what to do next........when on the side of the road............one call, to those who just do this everyday........seems to work a bit better from what I have found.
And.......by all means.......explore all your option's and ask a lot of questions........and after that......you will have it narrowed down I believe.

That was not my experience with progressive I made one phone call to them they called me four times to keep me updated and to make sure we were safe. Then called twice after we were towed to ask if we were able to get repaired and back on the road. I never saw a bill. They even called as the tow truck was pulling up to let me know that it was the truck that they had sent. Very easy and professional.

Count me in on the Coach-Net endorsers. I have used them several times and they are fabulous.

Good Sam here. Two years ago our alternator went out and left us stranded on Highway 75 about 12 miles south of Sherman, TX. Good Sam had a wrecker to us in a couple of hours (the wrecker had to come from about 60 miles and towed us about 3 miles to a Freightliner shop. NO charge for the wrecker. Good Sam stayed in touch with us about every half hour to update us on the wrecker. They also called ahead to the Freightliner shop to alert them we were coming. Luckily Freightliner had a replacement alternator in stock.

In 20 years of class A RVing, had GS for first 5 years, switched to CN 15 years ago. Used both services several times. Much happier with CN service. Will stay with them.

I think AAA has a 2 tow limit per year or something like that do the others have a yearly limit?

All,

I was just cancelled by GoodSam. I do use it on my family cars. Over the last 2 years, I have never used GoodSam except for maybe 2 or 3 tows with my family car (kids mainly). What they told me was I was higher that average and they then cancelled me.

I know in the insurance world, some use insurance more that others. Insurance is suppose to spread the risk to everyone who pays the same rate.

In my opinion, GoodSam canceled me because I was not profitable to them!!!

I believe all of the roadside assistance programs have limits on usage. At least the big three, AAA, GoodSam, CoachNet. AAA limits you to two calls a year (last time I checked. Also AAA is not a national RV program, and providers in some states do not offer RV service. If you need service in those areas you pay, then request reasonable reimbursement...whatever that means. I personally had a problem with CoachNet, so I now have GoodSam ERS. There are plenty of negative posts regarding roadside assistance, but usually the cause of concern is the local contracted service provider. So it is just luck if you get excellent service, or service so poor that you must call for outside assistance.
Giving your question, AAA or GS, I would choose GS, since it specifically lists RVs in the terms of service. Then, hope you never have to call
Happy Trails.

I have used Good Sam ERS 4 Times in the last 9 years. I used it only on my RV's

1. Tire Blow out on I-10 Lordsburg NM

2. Motor Failure (Fuel Pump) Hwy 89 Uinta Utah

3. wreck with a Fifth wheel Trailer Camp Ground 90 Miles from Elko NV

4. Motor quit (Fuel Pump) I-84 Off Ramp Twin Falls Idaho

Except for #1 all were tows of 2 Motor Homes, and 1 5th wheel. ERS Saved me Thousands of dollars.Never used it for family cars. I would not go anywhere in my Motor home without it.

Ditto here. One should have a back-up (provided one can afford to do so).

We had AAA for years. Changed to Good Sam when we found out AAA does not cover motor home towing!! All other coverage is equal.

Coach Net, have needed them 2 times, they came through with flying colors. Would not leave home without Coach Net. Motorhome was towed approx. 50 miles a couple month ago. They scheduled a large tow truck and service at a dealer. Could not be happier.
