Good Sam and Coach-Net are the two most popular.

Coach-net looks very interesting.

Done the Good Sam thing. I wasn't impressed. Around here it became obvious that some of the tow companies don't like to "offer" their services because other companies pay more.....like AAA. That made for a very long wait one Friday night! My wife is more important to me.

I really don't think of price as the main factor. I really want help when I need it!

I'll check out how their perceived and report back.

(I since have a good aquantance that owns a tow business----Boy have I learned a ton from him about how things really work)

Went and spoke to the tow truck company again specifically who they prefer and why. 100% hands down AAA. Apparently, they are the only company that will allow for a 100 mile no questions asked tow distance. As well as allowing for 3x per year. Kinda obvious now....

I live in a very heavily traveled RV tourist traveled neighborhood. So, I trust their judgement.

I decided to pay more for AAA Premier. $146/yr

You might need two tow trucks for one incident. (Actually one tow truck for your pick-up truck......and a flat bed to take your camper somewhere)

Think that could be a possibility?
