I do not know about the extended warranty availability for your rig, but I wouldn't want to be traveling without a roadside assistance plan. If you blow a tire or have a disabling event, you have no recourse except to find someone to assist you and then pay out of pocket for the costs. I prefer to have the assurance of roadside assistance designed for RVs, when I need it, and accessible with a simple phone call.

There are many options for roadside assistance - Good Sam, as you mentioned. Some use CoachNet, and others get it through their auto/RV insurance carrier. Make sure when choosing that you are comparing apples to apples, and that you know what is and is not covered.

I hope you have many miles of trouble free traveling!

I would definitely get roadside assistance, whether from GS or perhaps Coach Net. The Extended Warranty was just too high for my coach. I am taking the chance that nothing will fail. We'll see.

With my Good Sam Insurance I pay $2.00 every 6 months for road side assistance for my RV and my other 4 cars. Pay more what for? deSanford Yes they send a flat bed or disconnect my short drive shaft to tow the motorhome.

We purchased a Good Sam extended service contract at time of purchasing our 2000 Winnebago. It, in our opinions, was worth the purchase price. It is $0 deductible when Camping World does the work, $50 for other shops. It is a 3-year contract, cost about $4,700. Since purchase last April, it has paid-out nearly $4,000 for covered repairs/replacements. Just the 2 outside remote, heated, rear-view mirrors ($1,300ea) were $2,600.(adjustment motors bad) Dash heater valving replacement is ongoing, another covered item.

P.S. Whichever company you buy from, purchase the optional seals and gaskets rider. It covers any engine, transmission, differential, or hyd. system gasket leaks. Mine cost $200 for the 3 yrs.

We have used Coach-Net for the past 4 years. They have supported us with Technical information and trouble shooting information for the chassis and coach. In addition while traveling form Georgia to Alaska they provided support for battery problems, replacement of fan belt, and fuel pump replacement in Alaska by finding competent and quality facilities to perform repairs. Coach-Net has provided assurance for confident travel in the US and Canada. They cover both MH and toad.

Safe Travels and THE JOY IS IN THE RIDE

Stan, do a search on extended service plans and you will find a lot of threads regarding this subject. There are as many against having an ESP as there are in favor of it. I can tell you after doing a lot of research this past year, Good Sam is one of the most expensive...

I have the Good Sam extended service plan because these rigs cost big dollars if something goes wrong, especially with the engine. I thought it was worth the cost myself. Ours is a 2009 and I bought the policy after the first year warranty was up. Cost me $2,081.80 for the first 3 years. Now I am in my 4th year and the premium becomes annual - it is now $1,613.50 per year. Still worth it to me as my rig gets older and things happen. I have a $500 deductible so the cost would be less with a higher deductible.

I have Coach-Net as my roadside assistance provider. I have the gold and it covers all vehicles as well as the coach. I had Good Sam until once incidence which totally soured me on their program. Coach-Net seems to have people more oriented to motorhomes than Good Sam people.

Stanley, my coach is the same age as yours, and I chose not to use the Extended Warranty plans that are out there.

I do have the GS Roadside Assistance. I think the cost is very reasonable considering what it might cost you to get pulled in from way out in the boondocks! JMHO!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
