Just last friday our coach broke down on the way home from a trip, we called AAA and within 45 min. there was a 40ft tow truck there to tow us on home. I was not even asked to sign anything. I picked some tomato's and peppers out of our garden and gave them to the driver for his great service.

AAA wont tow an RV in MO...I'm thinking an 8-9k max pound limit they will tow...I cant remember for sure.

Their adjuster told me this...while he was estimating some hail damage on my pickup....and he stated my pickup if loaded was over their limit too

Check out AAA closely before signing for their ERS. AAA has different areas, each with their own rules as noted above. From reading waaay too many threads about which ERS is best I concluded both CoachNet and Good Sam ERS are nearly equal in a following. I've never had CoachNet (yet) so can't speak for their quality of service, Good Sam ERS has served us well since 1998 and see no reason at present to change, however that can change with a different CEO and management at any time; the same may be said for every company.

I have AAA. I put gas in my diesel by mistake once. I knew enough not to start the engine. AAA sent two flat bed trucks; one for my truck and one for my trailer. My pup and I rode in the tow truck. Guess it was about a 40 mile trip. An hour later after arriving at the place where they drained the truck, I was back on the road...they even hitched it back up for me.

I think if I ever take another cross country trip, I'll pick up another provider just to be sure I'm in a good coverage with someone.

I have CSAA which is AAA in California.

Had an inside dual blow in central California which also took out my exhaust system and main wiring harness for the coach part of the motorhome.

Blown tire replacement and towing was just under $2,000 and damage repairs were $10,400.

Two tow trucks showed up with in a half hour, one with the Michelin XRV tire I requested and the other big honking tow truck to tow me to Fresno.

I paid $50 and the rest was covered.

I'm a happy camper.

I agree - go with CoachNet. AAA is for general passenger vehicles, not for motorhomes. In some places you may be alright, but not everywhere. Coach Net even has techs available to help you trouble shoot and see if you really need a tow or just help with a quick fix and the location of a repair facility.

I respectfully disagree, having used their service on two different occasions.

I have AAA for our cars. Is there a separate membership for RVs?

Yes, RV is an add on.

Yes, I have the Premier Service for RV. I have a trailer. I needed them out in the middle of no where. Waited maybe a half hour. Two flat bed trucks came, put the truck on one, the trailer on the other, and put my pup and me in the cab of the truck and took us 40 miles. An hour or so later I was on my way--they even hooked my truck back up to the trailer for me.

Edit: I did have trouble getting them to get me in my trailer when the dead bolt broke. They left--young kid didn't know what he was doing. Fortunately, I had a drill with me and friends were good enough to use it to get me in.

It's an add-on cost. Your standard AAA will not cover an RV. You can contact AAA to find out the details as they would pertain to you.

I can see no advantage with AAA. Having been a member for years with good service I had a flat tire in AZ I was informed by the driver that they didn't change inside duals. AAA is regional, your coverage may vary by location. I added CoachNet and had to use them two times on a recent trip without incident. Will not renew the RV coverage with AAA, don't see any reason to.

The other thing I've noticed with AAA is that the shops that deal with them really like them.

In addition to the $12,000 tire blow out we also had a $36,000 flood in our stick house. Every contractor that worked on our various repairs said they liked AAA the best because they didn't nickel and dime them on the repairs.
