Nearly happened to us at college football taigate. The attendant sent us to the wrong lot, grass instead of pavement. The boss came and told us to move. I had the dear wife gun it and not stop while I directed her out. Left some significant ruts, 4 or 5 inches deep. Could have been a disaster. We were lucky.

Stuck in the Mud...... No More

Thanks for all your help.
Got it out with my 70hp 4 WD ag tractor.
Took front nacelle off from MG set frame, then attached chain hooks, to the front spring hangers, kept separation of tow points with additional chains to tractor. Driver in tractor and in RV. It had frozen big time for 2 days for here and at 12F we got it out OK. Just as one respondent stated you have to keep chains away from bodywork and MG set pipes and wires.
Rear jack plates were frozen into soil so they stayed put and stretched the springs until they gave way.
Good Sam rescue does NOT include pulling from "off road" area, read the fine print.
Did not mean to condemn all tow truck services but in this area the way out is a local farmer who is used to muddy fields, which was my next option.

Any advice on replacement jack springs?

Coach Net pulled me out of my front yard when I was buried worse than that. I had to wait until they could get a tow truck from the other side of the state. No charge to me.

Well done getting the MH out with minimal damage. Do you have any pictures of the process? It would be great to see them.
