Every time a thread such as this arises , Coach Net seems to be the ERS of choice. I have them and haven't had the need to call them for assistance for 9 years . They were excellent then and I know from others that they'll be now as well.

0 Rating for AAA

We gave up on AAA roadside service for rv's after they left us on the side of the road for 5 1/2 hours . We were on I-15 in CA but within sight of the NV line with two flats and their people could not decide if we were in their So CA service area or their No CA/NV service area! Not even the CHP dispatcher could get them to make a decision nor to accept our membership card which was endorsed for rv service!
We dumped them for Good Sam. They have never asked why.

Put AAA in the search box on the page header and you'll get lots of other iRV2 threads to read.

We had AAA RV service early on but learned that the service levels provided by various AAA organizations across the country will vary. In some places you may be on your own finding service even though AAA will reimburse you within their guidelines. We then went with Good Sam and really had no complaints. A few years ago when it looked like Affinity Group (Good Sam) was having financial problems we switched to Coach-Net and have been happy with their service.

Affinity/Camping World/Good Sam seem to have their problems behind them now but I have no recent direct knowledge of their road service quality.

Compare the AAA services and towing distances to Good Sam and Coach-Net. I think you will find either much preferable over AAA. And either will emcompass your cars as well. I dropped AAA years ago when I first got a MH.

We were AAA members for many years and never really had a complaint. They bailed us out on a number of occasions over the term of our membership. However, when we first decided to buy our coach and go full-time my research told me that AAA would no longer fill our needs and that CoachNet was the way to go.

If you purchase your CoachNet membership through FMCA the membership fee will be discounted. Emergency road service and technical assistance

Coach net is a part of our MH insurance policy. The annual premium on that portion is $89. Got it through National Interstate.

We had AAA RV plus. We broke down 85 miles from home. Our friends, with whom I was riding, had Good Sam. GS offered to tow them to the closest repair facility, closed on Sunday when we broke down.
I called AAA and they towed us home and checked on us several times. It cost me no extra.
If they covered fivers, we'd have kept AAA.
