Roadside Assistance Opinions

We in the process of purchasing a 2011 Jayco Jayflight 29 RLS. It has had one owner and never been towed. It is on a seasonal site at this time. We are interested in getting roadside assistance and insurance on the travel trailer. Can anyone suggest which companies offer the best roadside assistance and which companies offer the best insurance. We plan on traveling quite a bit with our new purchase.

Thank you so much for any help/experience you can offer.

Well, I've used GoodSams for the last 14 years, and have had to call them out 3times. It's always been tire issues. I have called them for service info on the road to located a shop in the area I could stop for repairs. The only problem I've had was once, I couldn't get the brand of tire I wanted. I only use Michelins. So, broken down on the road, they installed a Chinese tire. When we got to a camping world I had that one, and the rest replaced. They tell you, they don't hunt for tire brands!!

CoachNet has always been there for me at all hours.

GMAC insurance, I've had them for 4 years now. One $4,000.00 claim and they were very responsive. That was 2 years ago now and they have increased my rates since the claim.

I've always had Good Sam's as it offers the best price on road side assistance for all your vehicles as well as your rv. I've only used it once for a tire issue and they just had to jack up my trailer and put my spare tire on to replace a tire that was wearing unevenly. AAA offers a RV package, but it is more costly than their standard pl

There is really not much difference in the price, terms or service of the 2 major RV specific road service companies. If you consider that all they really provide is an answering service and a billing service; they all rely on calling the same independent local towing & service providers. With either company you have a chance they will occasionally send out an incompetent, poorly equipped or lazy mechanic/tow driver.
I strongly preferred Coach-Net when they had a separate call center dedicated to RV's only; but now that they combined the RV's with their truck & bus call center, there's not much difference. GoodSam farms out the entire service to a 3rd party provider, subject to change, everytime their contract comes up for renewal.
At only $100 a yr, my choice was to get a policy from both, hope I never have to use either, but have two shots at getting help if I break down in the middle of no where.
