Tim, are you sure about the service you bought from GS? Towing is a part of what you bought.

Morning,
I already have that with my insurance, I was more interested with the medical and the MH return stuff and there all they do is call someone and you foot the bill. I really thought it was more like a insurance policy that covers that, like with my insurance after I pay the deductible..
On a side note how ya doing been awhile since I've seen u on irv2.
Tim

Coach Net is so much more than just a roadside tow service. I have had them for years. This year I was on the road and had a windshield wiper arm fail. No tow was involved. Coachnet lined up a Ford dealer to deal with the problem. They arranged for me to dry camp in the parking lot of the dealer and have a first in line appointment. Turns out that Ford did what they could and got the arm working, but did not charge me at all. I also had a charging line issue, the Ford dealer could not find the problem, but Coachnet lined up a shop down the road to put in the necessary line, relay, and fuse. Coachnet has a Tech-Support department. You can talk to an RV tech who will talk you through issues that you can deal with.
Coach Net does so much more than just tow.

AAA will come out and pick up your truck. They will leave your camper on the side of the road. You must get an RV tow company like CoachNet (the best) or Good Sam (marginal). CoachNet covers all your vehicles, not just your RV. AND covers you in a friends car if he breaks down and has no tow insurance.

At one time we used Progressive with the add-on roadside service for $10 at that time. Long story but we bought a used truck and 5th wheel just for our trip to Alaska. First starting out we visited Death Valley Nat'l Park and blew the engine on the truck. Called Progressive and they immediately sent two flatbeds from Lone Pine - 75 miles away - one for the truck and one for the 5th wheel. We paid absolutely nothing for the tow.

A side note: we returned to where we had left our 40' motorhome and Jeep, packed it up and took off for Alaska for the summer with none of the issues we were worried about. We just got a shaky start with the truck.

Good review of the two basic RV roadside assistance plans. While my regular AMICA insurance will nicely cover damage and accidents, their towing and roadside assist is minimal. In 40 plus years and many, many thousands of RV miles I've never needed any help but with TVs and trailers getting way too complicated for side-of-the-road screw driver and pliers repairs feel that $89 bucks it might be a good idea for a Coach Net policy. As far as Good Sam - it's a good idea but with so much of their trash coming to my mail box makes me wonder where Lemonis' priorities went().

Actually, I have a roadside assistance rider on my Progressive policy and have had to use it twice, once in the Yukon. I just called Progressive and they took care of everything. The time in the Yukon I told them I did not want a regular tow, but a flatbed for the coach because of the frost heaves. They had no problem with that. The truck had to come from Whitehorse, 180 miles away. So it was a 360 mile round trip that didn't cost me a dime. By the way the rider cost's me $27 a year.
