I've never had anything but Coachnet but it seems that the vast majority of members prefer them.

I've had several and CoachNet is far and away the best for me. I've heard many complaints about AAA (I also am a member of that), some about Good Sam, none about CoachNet, although I'm sure there must be some.

They all rely on mostly the same set of local tow & road service providers, so the deciding factor is which one is most responsive & best at finding the right local service for your RV issues. In the past that has unquestionably been Coach-Net. However, with Coach-Net's parent company recently moving the RV service call center from Lake Havasu to Dallas, and combining it with their commercial bus road service center, their level of service to the RV community seems to have slipped a bit; time will tell if they get back to their previous position as the preferred supplier or continue to let minoir savings in their overhead jeopardize their reputation.
At approx $100 a yr for any of them, its cheap insurance. I have policies with all 3, but then I have 3 RV's, 3 trucks & a Harley, and want to be sure I can get a response anytime/anywhere.

I just switched from AAA to Coachnet based on feedback from here. I had never had to call AAA. Only comment is that I just had to call Coachnet due to flat tire, in my yard. I quite surprised that the only solution for a flat front tire was to have a tow truck come and tow it from my yard. I just wanted a tire service to pull the tire, I would have even taken the tire in, but Coachnet said not, they only tow for flats. Did not want to take the chances of a tow so figured it out without using the service.

That being said, they answered immediately and made sure I was safe. Just did not like their solution. I checked the policy and it says tire service or tow.

Take care.

Coachnet. I've heard of AAA sending out a regular tow truck to handle an RV issue...not so much! Good point about the Coachnet buyout. I'll be watching the boards to see if there is a drop off in service.

Ditto, if you have a Class A Coach-net is the only way to go.

While the lockout was on our auto, our SoCal AAA didn't have a clue of whom to call in Colorado. In the following years we had a dead battery, this time called Coach-Net, service truck arrived in 15 min. Obvioulsy when we are traveling Coach-Net seems to have the superior service.

Several years ago I was told by a AAA dispatcher that AAA clubs across the country vary in their level of RV support. In some areas of the country you may have to find your own service person and be reimbursed later by your local club. If you are considering AAA, question them very closely about their level of nationwide RV support.

Forget about AAA. They are ok with cars but not RVs.

I use Coach Net. I called AAA one time when my P/U wouldn't start, because it is a 3/4T, the AAA driver would not tow it under AAA, but would tow it for cash. You can imagine what I told him and where I told him to shove his Tow Truck and my AAA card.

I've had great luck with Good Sam, have used it once for my Class C and twice for my minivan. They do send you way too much junkmail though
