AAA RVplus vs. Coachnet Basic

I currently have AAA RV plus and have used it twice for a boost and a yank out of a mud trap...lol. Well worth the $85 I paid for annual coverage.

I will be renewing in the spring and have heard that Coachnet is a trusted provider.

Is either much better than the other, for the respective plans?

Well, it may be a Ford vs Chevy sort of thing. However, I'll offer a few thoughts about why I like Coach Net better.

All AAA policies are issued by state AAA organizations and may or may not always be honored in other states (but mostly they are). In some cases you may have to pay for the road service and get reimbursed later. And if the dispatcher you reach is in a state that doesn't have RVPlus policies, there could be some delay or confusion.

Coach-Net, on the other hand, is national and dedicated to RVs - that's what they do. And they are accustomed to dealing with big rigs, so know what sort of help you may need and how/where to get it. They also have an RV tech support staff on hand to help answer questions and fix problems, even if the problem is just that the furnace won't light. And one policy covers your RV and all your personal cars, for one flat price.

I am a 51 year member of triple A but I no longer carry their rv road service. We were forced to wait 5 1/2 hours on I-15 just south of the Nevada line with two flats while they determined whether we were in the No Cal/Nevada or So Cal service area! That was after they first refused to provide any service even though the Calif Highway Patrol dispatcher told them my card clearly stated it was good for rv service. I stay with AAA only for their maps and travel services.

I now have Good Sam road service but I would also encourage you to research CoachNet.

We cancelled our RV Plus because the don't handle any 5ers. They do class a, b, c and bumper pulls.
On the flip side, I was a passenger in a class c and broke down in Columbia,SC. We called Good Sam and the would tow to the closest repair facility within 100 miles. We were 88 miles from home the owners brother, the mechanic. I called AAA and the sent a 50 Ton wrecker, on scene within the hour. The operator gave us a ride home and towed the Motorhome. He paid special detail to proper towing and removed the drive shaft. He did a walk around prior to hooking up, after and at the drop sight. An 88 mile tow that was worth well over $250. AAA called several time to be sure that all was well, we were safe and happy.
I wish they handless fivers!
