Good Sam or Coach Net?

I know this is an often mentioned topic with virulent positions on both sides.
There have been good and bad arguments for both.
Just would like to know:
1. Any difference in cost
2. Any difference in coverage
3. Having both any advantage

We have had Good Sam for several years and needed them a couple of times for battery problems. Had satisfactory experiences. Good Sam has run out and looking at alternatives.

I can only speak for Coachnet and service has been excellent. I have had for approx. 15 years, used them two time, both required towing the motorhome to a shop. Coachnet gave me options and proceeded after my approval. I would not leave home without Coachnet,

I needed a tow for my pickup. A K2500 2 door. After a 3 hour wait the tow company left me stranded. Good Sam never called to check on me. I had to find a local tow company and pay for the tow. Not happy with Good Sam

I have had both over the years. With good service from both. I moved from good sam to coach net due to lower cost and additional services (tech support line). Albeit I have not had occation to use the tech support. I have not recently compared price and service, so ymmv and I suggest one do so via there respective web sites.

I had Good Sam for about 15 years. Never had to use them. Just switched to Coach Net this year.

I have Sam, but after all the hassles I had with financing, membership getting lost, wrong name on membership card, etc I am afraid to use them. I will switch when my year is up.

I had Good Sam for insurance, left them when I was treated like a criminal for a glass claim.

I still have their service agreement, had a claim for the generator. Their default answer is NO NOT COVERED! After a bit of wrangling and a personal e-mail to the CEO I magically was approved. Now that I know how to "crack the nut" I have kept them as the age of my rig makes it pretty expensive to change. Service everything on schedule! or they default to NO immediately! I had all the service records on mine and I feel that is what saved me.

I have Good Sam with AAA (with RV coverage) as a back-up. Never had to use either for my motorhome.

Neither. My insurance agent says for me to pay the bill for services and my insurance will reimburse me. If that is wrong I know where my agent lives. lol
