Roadside assistance insurance.

Need to buy a policy to cover towing and roadside issues. Have used Good Sam and Coachnet. Coachnet is asking $249.00 first year. Goodsam wants $114.00...... since we only use our coach 3 months a year I tend to shop fir the best deal. So...what company would you recommend??????

Who do you have insurance with for the MH? Call them and ask if they offer the coverage. My mh bought new, comes with 5 years RSS from Ford, but when it runs out, I’ll call Progressive and add their coverage. I had it with a previous mh, used it once, and they did their part well.

Some RSS is more then coming out to help. I have Coach Net and they have an excellent Tech support service which can walk you through many of your problems. I have used that more then the RSS. The $249 is first year only premium. After that the renewal rate is $169

I've been with them for 9 years and I trust them. They do what I expect them to do.

We've been using Good Sam for the last 18 years with only one less-than-satisfactory incident. I really don't think there is a lot of difference in any of the major players.


When our GS comes up for renewal I plan to look closely at the FMCA plan!

Hi Tony,

So if one calls with a house system issue they will troubleshoot over the phone?

Do they have access to coach or systems specific drawings, manuals etc?

Take 5-10 from the last 2 months and skim through them and you will have your answers, but from a far wider cross section of the members than you will reach with this thread.

I had both from the RV manufacturer and Ford for first year, and now have four more years from Ford. But I checked my insurer ( Safeco) and they would charge $16/yr.

I've had Coach Net for years, have used it a few times. Seems like I'm about even with benefit/cost over the years. Still worthwhile to have.

Make sure the ford tow will cover your trailer or you will be leaving it behind and finding a tow yourself.

With your regular insurance make sure itís more than a few miles. As my daughter found out it really isnít far enough.

I prefer something with roadside. I carry some parts and would hope roadside can get me back on the road without a tow. Towing is always a risk, one I would like to avoid.

Progressive

I recently broke down in NC on 95 and I called Progressive and they would
only tow me to a repair shop thatI named but I had a hard time finding some one that would replace the fan belt and no one could be found that would work on chassis and did find a Ford dealerbut had a 2 week wait.
Finally found a road service that would do it and to replace the belt cost $550.00.

I've been a AAA member for over 25 years, some people here say you need AAA RV. I don't I just have AAA 100 mile tow each call (They always ask me where I want to go). They have sent 2 tow trucks to me 2 times when my tow vehicle broke down. Just renewed yesterday for $185 for the year. I get 5 tows or service calls for my card and my wife gets 5 with her card.

Low cost seems to be your priority. FMCA offers roadside assistance for $60/yr with corresponding membership- for 3 yrs max.
