Any suggestions as to which company would provide the best roadside assistance, (towing, tire, etc) and provide info as to where to have repairs made? I have looked at AAA, Coach-Net and others. Any suggestions or your experience with them would be appreciated.

I have it under my regular insurance. Don't you??

Also, Workhorse covers you for 3 years or 36,000 miles.

I had it under my regular and checking it close it was only good for towing the vechiles 15 miles. I dropped it off the insurance and got the emergency road service on the motorhome and tow for alot less then I was paying with the insurance. So if you have tow service on the regular insurance policy you had better check it close.

I had Camping World for quite a few years and used them several times with no major complaints.

I switched to Good Sams last year and have used them once so far, no complaints.

I recieved a letter from KOA a few days ago advertising road service backed by Allstate and they state that it is better than all the others.

I'm trying to decide if I want to change. The price is about the same as the others.

Has anyone else recieved this information on KOA?

Thanks,

Ron

I am covered under my regular insurance but its not good enough. They reimburse later and when I break down I have to find the tow company. The coverage is very limited. Im going with Good Sam.

I've had both Good Sam and Coach-Net and believe that Coach-Net is the better choice. They know RV's and their special needs. Their on-call RV tech's are very knowledgeable. They are contracted by many of the manufacturers to provide warranty coverage, including Workhorse.

Here is a link to Coach-Net. They offer much more than just towing.

Like Tom said, Workhorse covers your MH for 3 years, so you do not need a provider. You will need one for your toad and this could be covered by your car insurance, which covers your toad being towed or around home. If you are towning, unless your vehicle becomes non-towable, you could tow it to the next repair facility. While around home, you know where to take it, and etc. You might want to think about tire insurance. For $500, you could get your tires covered for 7 years or until the tread is worn, I think to 2/32 of an inch. The tire insurance covers roadside assistance for tire problems with a new tire replacement and no reduced payment due to age and etc. s/Toby

I have Coach Net. Have used it twice and they did a great job both times.

Another nice thing about Coach Net, thet don't send you any junk mail like GS does.

Good Sam and Camping World are both subsidiaries of the parent company, Affinity, Inc. Aren't the roadside assitance offered by both companies essentially one and the same?
