GS covers all vehicles in the family(everyone) as well as the RV.

I have been with Coach Net for 9 years and they are top line in my book. I have used them several times and they KNOW what they're doing. I hit a piece of rebar on the Garden State Parkway 5 weeks ago causing a blow out. I called Coach Net and in ten minutes the state police were there, to make sure we were okay. The wrecker came out 1/2 hr later carrying a replacement tire. From start to finish less then 2 hrs and I was back on the road.
If you have RV problems at a campground they are excellent about finding a mobile tech who can work on your rig.
Maybe they aren't the cheapest, but they are the best.

Just wondering what is not the cheapest? And how are they if you’re not on the garden state parkway, and maybe on a long too lane road out in the middle of nowhere? I only ask because I was towed from a place once that would have cost over $1000, it was way off the main roads, but AAA did it no problem. I think we pay $175 a year for both of us. DW would know.

Considering switch from AAA to Good Sam Roadside Assistance

Coach Net.

Used to be Good Sam. They messed up pretty bad when I needed help, so I switched.

And also, new coach came with free Coach Net courtesy of Spartan, so it was a no brained.

The thing I like about AAA is they will tow any car. You are not resricted to one .

Anything associated with camping world (Good Sam) has a taint about it.

But with your dues you also get FMCAssist, repatriation, insurance. To purchase the cost would be $79 to $119/year.

Good Sam Roadside

Last summer Good Sam left me stranded on I15 between Baker Ca and Las Vegas saying they could not find anyone to tow me to Las Vegas for at least 24 hours. It was 110 degrees out on the side of the freeway.
Got disgusted and called 911 and within 10 minutes a tow truck was there and fixed my radiator hose instead of towing me anywhere.
I now use FMCA Roadside assistance. No more Good Sam for me.
