Road Assistance Insurance

I just bought my first RV and will pick it up in Florida to drive it back to Michigan. I saw an advertisement about a road side assistance insurance provided by Good Sam RV. They offer a "standard" and a "platinum" version. The standard one would seem to be sufficient. Any body have any words of wisdom/recommendations etc., relative to utilizing such a service. My RV is a 2002, 32 ft Fleetwood Storm.

Thanks in advance,

Words of wisdom would be: Don't leave home without it!

I use Good Sam and they have bailed me out a few times including this past June. Not perfect, but eventually I did get towed at no cost to me. I'm pretty sure I have only the regular coverage.

Coach-Net also has two or three levels ... towing & telephone support the same for all I believe with added services like trip planning etc. We have Coach-Net basic level ... don't recall what they call it.

I've read more than one comment from user's of both Good Sam and Coach Net that indicated Coach Net was notably more particular where they would tow your coach if it required shop work. I appreciate that kind of "picky-ness" and consequently have gone with Coach Net for my new Safari Trek.

I tried to find Coach Net on-line but couldn't find a site that would allow me to enroll for the service. Do you have a business phone# or internet address that you can provide me?

Coach Net is the best choice. I tried three different plans by Good Sams, ROD+ & Coach Net. Coach net is the better choice for service.

We have Coachnet through FMCA. Used it one time when our coach shut down on I59 in Alabama. Called Coachnet they tried to trouble shot over the phone to no avail, called me back a short time lated with two shop options, one could work on the coach that day, and we could spend the night in the coach if repairs were not complete. We were towed approx 25 miles, the coach was repaird that afternoon and we were back on the road. When you are away from home it is comforting to know that you can make one call and get help. I highly recommend Coachnet.

The one time in 13 years of traveling that I broke down I called my RV insurance company. They had a tow truck out there in less than thirty minutes. If you have a towing option with your RV policy why pay an extra $100.00 a year for duplication?

We recently had a blowout in the wilds of the UP in MI. I called Good Sam and they had a tire repair guy with a new tire in about 1 1/4 hours. Unbelieveable service. They turned what could have been a horrble day into just an unforgetable day. I have had them for years and never used them, but now highly recommend them. One thing to remember is that in changing a tire, you can use the hydrolic jacks of your coach to jack it up. I paid for the new tire and they paid for service call and changing it. I am very happy with them and my wife now realizes we are not alone out there.
