Insurance

This might not be the right Forum but I'm new to the DP ownership and wanted to ask what is the best type over the road insurance to purchase for emergency towing etc. I have a 43 foot navigator w/ Tag axle.

Most will recommend Coach Net.

We have insurance through AARP/The Hartford, which provides emergency road service/towing as part of the policy. Haven't had to use it (hope never), but you can't beat the price. We also have Coach Net, but that's a feature of the new 2012 RV bought that will expire in time.

It's definitely a great forum with lots of friendly people and advice!

Joe, I hope you never have occasion to use your AARP road insurance as you are in for an unpleasant surprise. Lots of folks also have AAA and think it is going to help them have a Motor Home towed. Will not happen with AARP or AAA. Drop it and get Coach Net.

Coach-net will tow it where you want, not to the closest shop. We had to have our toad towed by coach-net. There was a repair shop in sight from where we broke down but I wanted it to go to a Buick dealer. They towed it 18 miles to the dealer, no argument. I believe AAA has a mileage limit for tows.
Coach-net will also call ahead for you and make a repair appointment.

I have Good Sam Insurance and I pay $2.00 every 6 months for road service and towing. deSanford I don't subscribe to the $79.00 or whatever yearly rate they try to sell you.

AARP reimburses you after YOU arrange a tow or repair if they feel like it. Your on your own trying to get towed. Coach-Net. One call and your done.

Coach net but never had to use them. Plus I have coverage on my motorhome insurance policy.
Both cheap insurance just in case of a break down or flat tire.

I admit that I didn't do any research of the RV "insurance" world....so I'm with GMAC and on-the-road services from Goodsam ERS. I've used ERS once (for a blowout) and it went smoothy. Should I be reevaluating my "insurance" ??

Good Sam ERS here also. I have not had to have a tow but did have hydralics breakdown in April while camped near OKC. Jacks or slides would not move. Called Good Sam and reported but I had already found a mobil RV service to come to my location to fix. GS advised just to pay and get ticket then they would reimburse. $100 tab, and I got full refunding from GS. Sure could not complain with that service. Quick fix and lessons learned....got my moneys worth for sure.

GMAC only charges $2.00 every 6 months for road service, and they pay the company direct and arrange everything to service your rig. I know that for a fact as I have been with them for many years and several break downs. deSanford

Roadside assistance I will second the Coach Net suggestion,
Good Sam's is on the list too but I like Coach Net better.

For general vehicle insurance... Well, there is a thread on one of the forums I visit where an insured got his renewal,, No accidents, no tickets, nothing to cause them to raise the rate $1,200 per year, but that is exactly what they did.

That's dang near what I pay per year, MINE actually went DOWN this year. (About 30/month).

So the best advice is in the song: My Mamma Told Me, to do the SHOP AROUND.

I have Coach Net as well, have heard a lot of horrer stories about AAA as well. I have used Coach Net once when my Monaco went DOA. They had all the arrangements to tow my MH and trailer and were sending out the troops when the stupid thing fired and I was able to limp it into a shop. Very friendly and helpful, they also have people on hand that know a lot about slides and stuff that can help you get yourself out of a bind.
