Just today I renewed my AAA membership and upgraded from basic to plus RV. Now I can get towed anywhere up to 100 miles, plus they will tow my TT with a second truck even if necessary.

I read a bunch of MH forum posters who felt negative about AAA plus RV. What about TTs? Does anyone have something positive to say about AAA plus RV?

George-

We've had AAA+RV ever since we had the TT. Only had 1 instance that we needed them. Developed a bulge in a tire when we had the 5-r & they came out & changed it for us. Haven't had the need for them yet with the MH, but at least they did good by us prior.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

AAA + RV is pretty costly. Regular rate + Premium rate + RV addendum, about $140 as I recall. The competition (Good Sam and Coach Net) is cheaper (around $100), more RV centric and doesn't have that 100 mile limitation on towing distance.

I owned a towing service for a number of years and we towed for AAA. I would not trust them from my personal experience.

I broke down on the NYS throughway last year. Alternator went in the truck. AAA-RV coverd the truck on the flat bed, but I had to pay $45-$75 to have the travel trailer towed 4o miles. No luck getting reimbersed by AAA.

AAA services vary from state to state. I had it in WA state and there were areas around the country that would tow my truck but not the trailer. It seems that AAA services are like franchises or contractors. I kept it just that one year. I then went with Good Sam ERS.

We had the same experience also. AAA RV service level is very regionally dependent. Went with Good Sam ERS also.

Having dealt with them on a work basis, AAA + RV is a waist of money. AAA and the RV service are two separate services with their own separate dispatch centers. Neither knows what the other is doing. The service is very expensive and very spotty at best. The tow companies are contractors for AAA and only get paid $35.00 per service call.
Pretty cheap when the regular rate they charge is about $160.00 per hour. AAA calls many times are low priority when real money can be made. I would get Good Sam or something specific to RV's. Not AAA.

I have had AAA RV Plus for several years. While traveling to Florida two years ago I experienced a major computer failure in my tow vehicle. I was near the city of Winchester Va, at noon on a Saturday. Triple AAA dispatched a flat bed tow truck. My Expedition was put on the flat bed and the TT towed behind. Since I wouldn't beable to get repairs done until Monday, AAA towed my TT to a very nice campground and put me on a site then delivered my truck to the Ford dealer and to get a rental car. There were no additional charges and the tow operator was very courteous and friendly. All in all a pleasant if not happy experience.

I appreciate all that have given their opinion on the subject. I have been holding my breath with each previous post that I read. I want to thank Hobie16 for giving this positive account of how he was treated regarding his Travel Trailer and delivery of his tow vehicle.

Well, I have AAA Plus and only had to use it one time. However, they sent a Large tow truck, paid the bill and there were no problems, I agree it is a little expensive, cant comment on how the service varies but do have some concerns about that. just my 2 cents
