Ford roadside assistance

We bought a 2013 Georgetown 378 xl last year.
Thought about purchasing a roadside assistance contract. The question I have is the Ford chassis comes with a 5 year roadside assistance warranty.
Would I be buying more than I need?
Ford will tow to the nearest authorized dealer. Flat assistance. Jump start. Run out of gas assistance.
My insurance policy has a small towing allowance. ($75)
Has anybody used Ford for this and what do you think about it or should I consider a separate policy?

I've got roadside assistance on my insurance policy, with my extended coach warranty and now by Ford? Many of you may to.
Full Timers.

If you have a spare, you should be fine. I originally obtained GS Roadside Assistance, but when it came up for renewal I declined in favor of the factory coverage. I didn't have a spare for the first 6 months of ownership and the Ford Roadside Assistance won't tow for a flat. They'll change a flat with your usable spare. Once I had a spare on my unit I was comfortable with the factory coverage.

Ford roadside assistance

Good point about the flat situation.
Does anyone know about how much tow trucks charge for fixing flats. My insurance policy pays up to 75 dollars.
I suppose the money I might save on roadside service contracts may pay for anything over that amount.
Just all a gamble.
I'll have to check my extended coach warranty policy to see if it pays for anything.
