AAA, CoachNet, or???

We are newbies to the RV world. Our AAA is up for renewal and they offer RV Plans as well.
We would appreciate any feedback on these two organizations and your experience of the services.
We pull a 22' TT with a Toyota Tundra.
Thanks!

Going to follow your post because we have the same question. Have towed a 24' TT for the last year and a half with just our fingers crossed, LOL. Have basic AAA but have been eyeing Good Sam as well. Just have not done the leg work yet to compare plans and pricing.

I just let my Good Sam roadside assistance lapse and after looking at AAA, Coachnet, and FMCA, I think I'm going with FMCA. FMCA appears to cover a little more than AAA and Coachnet is way more expensive.
Just my opinion, I could be wrong.

Yes, I now have a growing spreadsheet comparing 4 levels of AAA, 3 for Good Sam, and FMCA just looks so simple, it's hard to believe it! I know FMCA is now "admitting" those of us without Class A's - but will I feel like a fraud with that fancy sticker on our current TT or our future 5th wheel?!!

My AAA renewal is due and was wondering if they cover anything with a travel trailer, i.e. flat tire, lockout or some sort of trailer towing if the TV needs a tow. The answer I got from AAA was that they DO NOT cover the trailer at any level. The trailer will be unhooked from the TV. I hate to have two memberships but have multiple cars and kids on AAA.

Been with Coachnet for many years and totally satisfied. Used them 5 times service was excellent. When you are on the side of the road you want good service. Coachnet has provided that each time.

Hey Joe, is that with the basic AAA card of the AAA Plus RV card?
I have the Plus RV card and assumed it would cover a trailer. Yes, I know what happens when you assume.
I got it because they said I needed it to cover our motorcycles. I guess I better look into that.

Thanks

I have always been happy with AAA for our cars but not for rvs.

We called them twice for lockouts with an old class A (lock broke once, and once jammed) and they were useless. 3rd time was a chassis issue and they could not tow me and said they need to send a mobile mechanic, I got the coach moving myself.

Last renewal we moved to coachnet.

X2. You should always try and go with a rv qualified towing service for best results.

8 years fulltiming, 7 calls to CoachNet. Four small service calls that cost me a few bucks, and three tows of 40, 50, and 10 miles that cost me exactly $0.00. At every step, CoachNet was timely, competent, and highly professional. I recommend unequivocally.
