Road service? Which is the best to buy?

I would like to hear some input on road service. I broke down this summer and had to deal with it all my self. When it happened i was at a complete loss for a bit till i got my thoughts together and could start thinking on just what to do first.

We have needed to use CoachNet from FMCA a few times and have been most impressed with their response times and the service people they have dispatched.

We're totally satisfied!

Coach-Net is my choice. Excellent outfit.

By the way, they are independent of FMCA, though FMCA has designated them their "official provider" of road service and sells subscriptions to the service. Several RV manufacturers also recommend Coach-Net and may give one year free subscription when you buy a coach.

Coach-Net is for motorhomes only.

Seems to be two major ones out there. Good Sam and Coach net. Each one has members/subscribers that believe one or the other is the best. It seems that reading posts on various forums that Coach Net has the fewest distractors. Can't comment on Good Sam. I have Coach Net. Used twice and happy with outcome.

First post on here...not much for this sort of thing BUT I had to answer this. We have an old Motorhome and Coach-net! We broke down on the way home from picking it up so you can imagine how we felt...well Coach-net was there and handled everything perfectly. The problem turned out to be minor..something my husband could fix at home but Coach-net gave us peace of mind. My vote is definitely for them!

We've had very good experiences with coach-net both for our rig as well as our cars.

I currenly have Good Sam Club unitl May 2011. A few months back when I had my Class C, it broke down at a traffic light, after one and a half hours, they still could not locate a tow truck for me. The police called a truck and it arrived 20 minutes later. I then had to go through the process of getting reimbursed for this in which it took about 4 weeks to get my check. So I would say the one the previous posts suggests should be the choice.

Does anyone know if I have to get RV roadside service now since I now have a Class B?

ALLSTATE PREMIUM PLAN. Unlimited calls. Unlimited towing. I have been with them since the 90s when all we had was a car. They cover anything we drive even if it is not ours. I would not leave the driveway without it.......
Thats my 2 cents worth .....

Hi David,
I see you own a Newmar coach. If you are a member of the Newmar Kountry Klub there is a discount available with Coach-Net. Go to Join the Newmar Kountry Klub to read about it.

I you are not a member go to Welcome to Newmar Kountry Klub for the application to join.

The best benefit is being around other Newmar owners. After all,
nobody knows your coach like someone who owns one like yours.
