Need roadside assist coverage for my trailer

I am seeking a company to do road side assistance with towing, I have a cargo trailer I use for sleep at times, but carry my tools and toys I play and work with. Mine is like a conversion job.

My rig is a muti purpose vehicle for sure, I kayak and camp also.

AAA turned me down 2 weeks ago because my trailer was not an RV. I sleep and have a toilet, and generator in it but not a bath. My Transmission failed in the first trip out.

Any help with locating the insurance to fit my needs would be lovely.

With mine I just added spares and all tools needed to make it largely self suffient. I even carry a 3/4 drive air impact and sockets.

AAA for your truck:
Carry enough tools to change a tire on your trailer; it doesn't look that big or heavy.
If your healthy enough to kayak you should have no problem changing a tire on your trailer (carry a spare)

We have Good Sam Road Service. It covers all our vechiles including our flat bed & an equipment trailer. You have to be a GS member. I don't know if you have to have an official RV.

GS road insurance is on the tow vehicule and covers whatever you are towing. Quite worth the cost IMO . forget car type insurance roadside coverage. Allstate left me stuck in TX . GS has towed complete rig in twice now to include sending 2nd recovery rig for trailer

Good Sam Club... maybe AAA not again

As for GS, I will look into that, as my tow vehicle (transmission) was the fall of my rig, not my trailer, HELLO!!
Spare trailer tire, air compressor, and air wrenches are on board. My job is historic monument preservation, I don't need to have the nicest stuff out there to get messed up, scratched up etc. nor stolen.
( I sleep with my tools )
Yes, even in a graveyard!

Be cause I have a low post count on 'irv2' dosen't mean I crawled on here from the City Sanitary system.

Yes, I'm capable of changing a tire, not the issue here.

AAA left my trailer on the road in rural Ky.


Plain an simple, I clearly am looking for a reasonable roadside assistance for the family and emergency road side assist with my rig (means trailer towing also if needed).

These days it would seem a service would be available for such as a conversion cargo trailer as I have, being like a conversion Bus to class A motorhome.

Thanks for the GS info Guys.

I have had them for a couple of years now. A lot better than AAA or Good Sam's.

GoodSam ERS will cover you, not your vehicle, Once they even towed my mothers car that I was driving, carrying her to my sisters house. They havce also changed several tires, never had to pay a dime although I have tipped the tire technician for a job will done.

Coach Net. The best because it covers ANYTHING you drive or haul and they are great when you break down. The only way to go.

GS sends too much junk mail. I had them both at the same time. Coach-Net forever.

We have Geico and its part of our basic policy. Covers any of our vehicles and anything we tow. And their service is good when we needed to use it. Check your current insurance carrier, they may have it as a rider.
