Hd roadside

I have an rv class 8 truck converted to an HD hauler that pulls my 5th wheel. Total length is 65 ft. GVW about 45k So what roadside assistance programs are you using that you like and will tow a rig like this? I know the trick is will they tow it or show and say they can't. Please tell me if you have one that will and please include if its been tested to tow your rid similar to mine.

I had Good Sam and cancelled it. Worthless for TCs and nothing more than an expensive, very slow, call service that only the weakest of on road service providers sign up with any of the Road side service companies. I would not trust any wrecker that they would call. Like you, my rig is 67ft and I pull a heavy loaded utility trailer and and weigh a little more so in same boat as you.
Next blown tire, I will call Love's for roadside assistance. They stock the tires and can repair it on the road instead of towing you to the nearest, and probably the cheapest and weakest, shop nearby.
Roadside service might be OK for small rigs but not for ours. I will just pay for the service that I need when I need it.

We have a Super C based on KW T2000 43 feet weighing in at 38K lbs. with tandem axle in place.

We use AAA with the RV Gold adder. We have had good success with them in the mountains of Colorado and the flat lands of Kansas.

"RECOMMEDED"

Good Luck,

Jim and Laura
