Question Roadside assistance.... Which is best?

Hi! We have become full-timers recently (2 weeks ago!) and have a question about which roadside assistance program to take advantage of.......


Any advice? We already belong to Passport America and Good Sam but haven't enrolled in either's roadside assistance yet.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

We are not full timers and we have CoachNet. They have always been very prompt in their response and have always gotten us back on the road in shortest time possible.
Have to admit I only needed them twice.

Regards,
RovinOn

I don't think Passport has one.

Allstate has RV Roadhelp that come with a Free KOA discount card every year.
I have used it since 1994 and been happy.

Good Sams Emergency Road Service is the best I can find for ALL my stuff. They have finally brought the renewal rate even with the new member rate. Find the info here RV Towing - Emergency Towing - Good Sam Emergency Road Service

Thank you all for your replies. Obviously I have some homework to do. I believe Pssprt Am. has recently begun offering roadside assist. Will let you know after I confirm that. :-)

Okay - update!

I called both P.A. & Good Sam and learned:

Good Sam is prob the best price whereas P.A. offers more services. Kind of a toss-up and depends on what individual needs are.

I like Coachnet. They are very responsive and cover all the vehicles I own with the single RV policy.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

I would suggest you use our search function to get countless views on this topic. Threads on this topic typically reveal that our membership prefers CoachNet by a very wide margin IMO.

Best of luck.

Rick

We have CoachNet through FMCA. Haven't had a breakdown that required a tow yet on the MH. Did use them once to tow the '97 Jeep when the alternator went bad and took out the battery too. Worked great.

CoachNet. Used them once for the coach and once for the wifes car. Superb service both times. They also provide tech support and make repair appointments for you.

Is there a better place than NMC | Roadside Assistance - RV Plans to get details on the program?

I tried to find out details of towing coverage (ie. will they want to take my to Hank's Fly-By-Night Bait Shop and RV Repair as it's closest, or can I take it to a shop I trust, which could be (potentially many) hundreds of miles away?). But the site just has prices and a checklist and I couldn't seem to find more details.
