Roadside Service

Coach Net did a good job for us.

I have used both Coach Net and Good Sam's and they seemed comparable and both convinced me that my best bet was to be doing my own looking and contacting while they were and things would happen faster.

I have Coach Net but (knock on wood) haven't had to use it. And, hope I never need too.

My insurance company, Progressive, has an addon coverage for roadside service. Had to use it once so far and they were quite helpful. A lot of service issues will depend on who in your area is available to come to your aid. I suspect that Tony's Tow Service will contract with multiple companies. They will all depend on Tony doing a good job.

We have AAA Plus. If you are only traveling in areas of the country they cover, we have found them to be excellent. We've used them for both car and trailer issues and they have been incredible. We went through a two week period with not one, not two, but *three* flats and they showed up in reasonable time, kept us updated while waiting, changed it in minutes and refused a tip. Separately, we blew the transmission on the tow vehicle from hell while 100 miles from home. We had managed to get the trailer to somewhere safe, AAA helped us rent a replacement vehicle, then when we decided not to fix the tow vehicle again, they towed both trailer and vehicle home.

I just wish they were everywhere in the country.

We have a couple different coverage's that we have had for several years. This last summer we had an 'issues' with our MH, that we needed to use the road side services for. When we were asked where we were located, they could not find us, for we were lots of miles from the 'nearest' cross road and the people we talked with in the 'lower 48' had no concept on how to find us.
I guess that these types of services work well in populated areas, just not well in Alaska.

We've used CoachNet for almost three years, have had occasion to call them three times, and received prompt and highly professional service each time at little or no cost to us, including a 45 mile tow that cost us nothing. At about $130 p/a CoachNet is without question the most cost effective coverage we have. Recommend unequivocally.

We have had RV insurance from Progressive for 5yrs. now. We've needed a tow twice, and both times they were outstanding. Once we needed a tow from Destruction Bay, Yukon Territory to White Horse(180 miles). Plus I demanded a trailer to put my motorhome on, not a normal tow. They didn't have any problem with that. I never saw the bill of course, but I guarantee you it wasn't cheap. And the towing rider is only an additional $24. I certainly got more than my money's worth.

Been using GS since 2001. May change to CoachNet next renewal date. No particular reason except it seems that most MH owners use them.

Not true on AAA Plus. We had this exact scenario, tow vehicle blew the transmission, they towed both TV & trailer home as well as help us locate a rental.
