Who has the best road assistance?

Hi! All,

Hopefully, you can assist and provide me some guidance. I am currently serving in the Army and PCSing from Fort Lewis, WA to Fort Sill, OK. I will towed my Raptor early next month. I would like to purchase some road assistance insurance in any case something happened (flat, brake down, etc). Thanks

Make mine Coach-Net. Not only are the very good, but they do not fill up my home mailbox with junk mail and solicitations like Good Sam does. As sdennislee said, search for this topic and you will get a ton of info and opinions

Coach Net. Used them a couple of times and have never been disappointed.

I called for my truck once and they told me that my Ford Warranty would cover the towing but that they would send someone out right away and THEY would coordinate back with Ford. I got towed to the dealer and I never heard anything more about it from anyone.

Hello from another Washingtonian, Harry!

Triple A has saved my bacon more than once, and I've never been anywhere that didn't have an affiliate.
And other than my renewal notice, I get no junk mail from them!
That might be a "box" to check when you sign up, though.

Their "Plus RV" coverage is about $130.00 a year, I think.

I am less than thrilled with CoachNet. I had AAA for 40 years but switched to CoachNet when my son had less than wonderful service with a problem with his boat trailer. As bad luck would have it I needed CoachNet a few weeks ago when my jacks would not retract. Their on line technician basiclly read to me the instruction booklet that I had in my hand. When that did not work they called the RV park I was in and asked who they use for a mobile tech. That tech came out and fixed the problem at my expense. I think I should have just walked to the office, called a mobile tech and I could have been on the road 3 hours sooner.
When renewal comes up next month I will either go back to AAA or try GoodSam. Haven't yet decided.
All three are probably very good, as long as you don't need them.
Happy Trails.

Coach-net is exceptional, even in Alaska.

I have Camping World Roadside Assistance, same as Good Sam. I blew a transmission in Terlingua, TX and was towed to Odessa, TX ($800.) to a transmission shop that re-built the transmission ($2,500). I also had a motel and meals. My total cost was $250 deductable.

Wow, Thanks for your replies and feedbacks. Also, thanks for sharing your experiences. It is always good to have road side assistance insurance and it is always better be safe then to be sorry.

We have Allstate. Last year in TX we had a ground problem with to toad and Allstate loaded it on a flat bet and hauled it to San Antonio (350 miles) at no charge. That was after sending 2 different companies to try and fix the problem. Dealer in San Antonio had to call Germany to get a fix for the problem, all is well now.
