Basically it sounds like you're rolling the dice no matter who you deal with.

Being new Good Sam members we received a special offer to be upgraded to Platinum coverage at no extra cost. I replied to the message enquiring if the plans are open to Canadians as they mention coverage in the US, but no specific mention of Canada. It's been a week now and no reply. Is this a sign of things to come? Can anyone comment on whether Good Sam or Coachnet roadside assistance programs are open to Canadians? Thanks.

I've used our roadside assistance in the states with no problems at all.

CoachNet; hands down. I've had to use them three time while traveling with the RV. They had assistance to me within an hour, they called me multiple times with updates while waiting and to see if help arrived yet. Even after the call when I told them the help had arrived, they called about an hour later to make sure we were safe and sound in a campground. I had my truck towed to a dealership once. When I called CoachNet they told me that since the truck was under warranty, that Ford generally provides the towing, but that they would get someone out to me and that they would get with Ford for reimbursement.

I'll never have anyone else.

Hmmmm My experience with good sams so far is ehhhh... I had 2 svc calls. Good sams takes care of RV and regular cars. I only had calls on the cars not the rv... Not sure if it is my service level or what but they only tow to the nearest service facility even if the facility you want is 8 miles away. While this may be fine for the RV for an auto to me it is not.... YOU have to pay for extra miles so for the two calls I have paid 40.00 in mileage which is 1/2 my membership. I am looking for someone else next year. When I used to have AAA platinium they would tow up to 100 Miles with no sweat but that was for cars only I didnt have a RV back then to see what they did for those....

Coach-net can be reached at 877-801-0333. Not sure if they cover you while you're in Canada.

Good Luck!

Have Coach-net. Problem with air bag in FL. they sent road svc out. Paid $95 and told to take it to a Roadmaster dlr as he could not fix. Lazy Days replaced a fuse and sprayed cleaner into connectors. Coach-net repaid the $95 spent.

We had a flat on our class A, I called GS and they would not send someone out, since we were not stuck on the side of the road, unless we agreed to buy a new tire. I said I didn't know what caused the flat and we might not need a new tire. (We were at home at the time and not on the roadside.)

So, I just called a local commercial tire company and paid them to come out, and take care of the problem.
Another time, our tow dolly had a flat. We called GS and they said it would be about a 2 hour wait. So, I said nevermind. I took the toad off of the tow dolly myself, replaced the flat tire, and put the car back on the tow dolly and we were back traveling down the road.
Now, our GS roadside service is due for renewal. Any thoughts? I am not sure that there is much of a benefit for it. Would it be better to just pay a company to come out and do what has to be done, if needed?

Pogo. The cost of roadside assistance is fairly cheap. I would keep it. The cost for a local shop to come out may be the same as a yearly membership. If you get lucky and your R/A comes out great if not call the other guy.

You can probably add this to your car insurance for far less if they insure your RV also. I've never needed any, but carry it just in case. As you can see, you get both good and bad reviews on almost all of the popular RV roadside assistance programs.

We have Allied Insurance, (a division of Nationwide), for our motorhome. They have emergency roadside assistance in our insurance as part of the policy. So, we let GS expire.
By the way, Allied was quit a bit less expensive than any other RV insurance policy quote that we ever received. ($550. per year)
For, the cars, we have USAA emergency roadside assistance for about $2 per car per month.
