Good Sam or Coach-Net

Which would you prefer, Coach-Net (Premier Coach $159) or Good Sam (Platinum+ $169.95)?

The majority of my use will be within 500 miles from home and usually pulling a golf cart on a trailer. 37' DP. Occasional loan to brother or sister.

Hands down it's CoachNet for me. Use our search feature and I think you'll find a lot of discussion on this topic and some pretty strong support for CoachNet.

Had both at one time and another - both did what they said on the tin and I'd choose either again. Just so happens that I have GS Platinum Plus at the moment - used once and very happy. Also had CN and used them and equally happy.

Good Sam. recently, I asked Coach Net a specific question. Three days later I got a "canned" response.

When i pointed out that the response did not address the question, I received another e-mail answering the question and saying ,in a condesending tone, that I had received the response previously.

They want to take my money and depend on them in an emergency? I don't think so.

They have a good rep, but for now I will stay with Good Sam. I had a flat tire and they did well then.

I've had both, haven't used either, and just changed back to CoachNet. Take a look at this thread for some recent discussion, and a way to potentially save $30 on the Good Sam coverage.

I have used Good Sam several times for the MH and the cars. ~10 times. All good to excellent experiences.

Coach-Net

I have used Coach-Net for: technical trouble shooting questions, road service, towing and mechanical repair facilities from Georgia to Alaska, including western Canada. I found there response has provided security to our travels over the past 3+years.

I have Triple A RV plus, never used it but would like to know if it's any good?
Cost is about the same. can you use GS or CN on your cars? Triple A will tow my 40' MH but not my Sprinter van...

I have used GS roadside assistance for 6 years and have used the service three times. Twice for the toad and once for the motor home. I am very satisfied with my treatment. Motor home was damaged while towing in April and they were very effective in getting the towing company to pay the claim. They assured me that if the towing company did not pay ASAP, that they would pay me and take the company to court on their own behalf. I recommend that you investigate any company's policy to see who pays in event of damage. I am happy I did not have to look to my insurance company for a claim.

CoachNet, without question. And.... in matters like this, you always get the highest level of service. That way there's never a question about coverage. Its up to you, but I don't want to save $30 and wind up with a plan that says 'we'll cover two flat tires and one tow per year, unless its a Tuesday and then we won't answer the phone.'
