Roadside Assistance

Getting ready to go full time. I know there are a lot of ways to get roadside assistance depending on your insurance, good Sam, and so forth. I would like to hear input from people’s experiences either good, or bad. We will probably spend 3 months or so in Texas, but plan to go all over US. Appreciate any input/feedback.

I've heard good things about FMCA. I have CoachNet, I haven't needed to use them yet, but I've heard good things about them too. I have heard too many bad things about AAA RV, even though I've had them in the past and had been happy with their service the couple times I needed them, but now that I have an RV I feel a little better knowing that the service I paid for will be tailored specifically towards RVs and has a good reputation for it.

We currently have Roadside Assistance through Easy Care. Have not used them as of yet.
Had Good Sam, but dropped them due to poor service.

I have Good Sam and have had two roadside calls to them for help in the last few years. Once was for a tow to a dealer several miles away. The other was for a blowout change along a busy interstate. Saved me a lot of stress. No complaints.

I had Good Sam for many years. The last 3 times that I used them for flats or tow the response time was totally unacceptable and one of the providers for a flat fix was not prepared to deal with anything other that a auto. Didn't have tools or compressor to deal with a 5th wheel. I switched to Coachnet a couple of years ago and had my first experience with them 2 days ago. Blown Turbo on my truck. They had two tow trucks to me within an hour. One for the truck and one for the 5th wheel. Excellent professional service provider. Couldn't be happier.

FMCA took my toad on a flatbed over 300 miles when a tire and rim were destroyed in Nevada. They have my business for life! Best $69 I spend each year!

We've been with Coach Net for 12 years. Have always had good service for both motorhome and car.

Escapees used to refer Coach Net but now have switched to the same company FMCA uses. I think Escapees is $99 a year vs FMCA at $69 a year. Fortunately I have roadside assistance with my insurance and also with extended warranty. I have seen many negitive posts about Good Sam but have no first hand knowledge.

I joined FMCA last year and picked up their roadside assistance. They have been great. I actually used them 4 times... All for tires I've been researching insurance quotes and asked one of the agents about the roadside assistance in the policy and explained what has happened with my tires (losing air through valve stem) and he thought it wouldn't be covered because it would be considered a maintenance issue rather than a breakdown. So I'll be keeping my FMCA roadside assistance forever. BTW had Good Sam before this and only used them once... And while the work was performed, it did take about 4 hours for them to get someone to me.
