Find a void policy for each and read with a fine tooth comb.

Are you asking about Road Hazard, like in relation to tires? Or are you asking about Emergency Roadside Assistance plans?

Wait time kinda depends on where you are, what time of day and alignment of the planets. I've only used Good Sam once, and a repair truck arrived within 25 minutes, of course he only had a 2 1/4 ton Harbor Freight Floor Jack! That being said, we were in Southern Florida, on I-75, near Tampa, I believe. As the commercials say "Advertised . . . . . . However Actual Experience May Vary"

If you're asking about ERS, than Coachnet is by far the best.

If you're talking insurance for road hazards? I don't know. Not sure what that is.

Road hazard insurance is a policy that insures your tires (and maybe rims). If you get a flat tire or bent rim from hitting a pot hole or a nail etc. It will pay for the repair or replacement. It will not pay for blowouts due to running your tires with improper inflation.
Emergency roadside assistance is a different type of insurance that will pay for things such as towing, bringing fuel, changing tires, and locksmiths to open doors when you've locked yourself out.

No, not normal. We've been CoachNet subscribers for 3.5 years now. Have had occasion to call them three times, and each time had a response (properly equipped) onsite within 30 to 90 minutes or so, but also received interim calls from CN telling us who was on the way, what time they dispatched, and their ETA. As far as I'm concerned, CoachNet is the gold standard in Roadside Assistance.

road service good sam's

I went to use my m/home and found a flat on the inside rear...had a spare but aged out at eleven years...had two brand new tires not on rims..

Called my Good Sam's Club and they wanted 148.50 per tire to mount the two new tires on my rims and put them back on the m/home...thought that to be pretty pricey ..so canceled the road service...Called a local independent guy and he came out when I requested and he removed my old tires ( including one flat ) and mounted two new tires on the rims, replaced the valve stems ( one of which caused the inside flat ) and remounted them on my m/home...

All for $155.00 incl. tax and stems...Will keep Good Sam's Club til it expires but will never use them again...the young girl I talked to at GS didn't even know what I meant when I mentioned the bead was broken on the flat..and couldn't drive the m/home to a tire store..

Glad you got going, but technically speaking, it sounds like you were at your home and these types of policies, whether from Good Sam, FMCA, or whatever are "EMERGENCY Roadside Assistance", not I've got a flat in my driveway assistance. That comes more under routine maintenance.

If the Emergency Roadside Assistance people had taken care of you, good for them, but I don't see that the repair, especially changing the SECOND tire that still held air really qualified as an emergency. Also, I hope you updated your SPARE tire and replaced the 11 year old tire.
