Question Camping World Road Service??

Good Morning
Need some information please. Has anyone used Camping World road service & if so how was it? We haven't camped in awhile & we are going out west this summer & need to pick up some kind of road service. At one time we were covered by coach-net but were not pleased with what they had to offer. Any info. would be appreciated.

Thanks Bill & Anne

I think you're the first person I've ever heard of who didn't like CoachNet!

Camping World's ERS, together with Good Sam's clone, are both good road services. However, my concern...and the reason we switched this year from Good Sam's ERS to CoachNet...is the financial instability of Affinity Group. I didn't want to be caught needing a tow or a tire change in Nowhere, USA, only to find out either of these two road services had gone out of business or that they weren't paying their bills so the service providers wouldn't go out on a call for them.

Hi anne n bill,
Welcome to iRV2. The major road service companies all contract through the same suppliers of service. This means it comes down to price and offering the services you need. If one can get a discount through any of the many organizations RVers belong to, for me, that is the one I would choose.

Thanks for the welcome Gary!

Thank you both for responding.

Gary, I think you are right about going with what we need. Camping World is doing just that, so we will go with them. We have checked them out throughly which unfortunately we didn't do with CoachNet so that when we got into an accident we found out to late that they didn't tow for accident's...Oh well another lesson learned.
Thanks Again
Anne n Bill

I'm with LindaH on this one; Affinity Group is having financial problems. We belong to Good Sam, but only for one year at a time, in case they go under. Hope they make it out, but for now I would search elsewhere.

Are you absolutely SURE that Camping World/Good Sam ERS will tow from an accident??? I have had it for many years, and that's news to me.

On Edit: OK, I pulled up a copy of their brochure and found:

Quote:
Subject to the provisions of this brochure, towing services
are also provided for membership-owned vehicles which
become disabled as a result of a collision.

Allstate RV Roadhelp is another good one to check out.

It comes with a KOA discount card included.

I have the Good Sam Road Service Contract, but an extended warranty through a company that the dealer sold. Good Sam has no limit on cost or distance for towing and that is why I keep them.

Yep, me, too, but I didn't realize they provided accident towing service under the contract. Guess I need to find the Good Sam brochure in the glove comparment somewhere (I think) and do some reading.

I've had Good Sam ERS for quite a few years and have used them several times. Always had excellent service. $105.00 per year is well worth it.

In this economy all companies are subject to hard times. Look at some of the high end coach manufacturers, and lower end too.

Jeez, I trusted wall street with my retirement money, look what that got me.

Just checked my Good Sam ERS Member Bennefit Brochure. On page 7 under Towing Service " Subject to the provisions of this brochure, towing services are also provided for membership-owned vehicles which become disabled as a result of a collision."

The following is from my Coach-Net benefits policy:
"In case of a mechanical disablement due to an accident, vandalism or a vehicle specific fire, contact Coach-Net for roadside service. Coach-Net will cover roadside services up to a limit of $500 per incident."

Roadside services include towing.

BobGed: All I can tell you is we had a bad accident in 2006, in which we were t-boned on I-75. Bill called Coach- Net right away & the operator was very adamant that they did not tow for accidents but as a courtesy they would call a tow truck with the understanding that they would not pay for it. Evidently the operator didn't know what she was talking about, or they have changed the policy since then. We had our policy through Travel Supreme, that shouldn't make a difference I wouldn't think.
