Emergency Road Service

Hi all,
Yesterday I got a mailing from Good Sam Club re: Emergency Road Service. We just ought a 2005 37' National TropiCal T370 w/ a Cat 350. My neighbor, who owns a 2002 40' Mountainaire Diesel, dropped by and handed me a brochure from Coach-Net re: their Emergency Road Service.
Good Sam has a deal going for $79.95 for the first year. I see Coach-Net has a nice package for $109.95. My neighbor says he wouldn't rely on the Good Sam program, and that Good Sam is notorious for good first year deals, but hit you with big increases at renewal time.
Please share your experiences to a Green as grasser !

Coachnet without a doubt. When we bought our current Tiffin, it came with the first year of Coachnet free. I've had the need to call them 3 times in 2 years and each time I was impressed. We bought the 3 year plan and are very happy that we did. Their tech support over the phone is great too.

Had Good Sam for 5 years. Miserable response the one time we needed them. Just switched to Coach-Net.

Well, it appears that Coach-Net wins the debate, hands down. I'm too old and far too fat to swim upstream, so Coach-Net it is. Thanks everyone !!

Coach-net may have some lower priced offers too, if you are a member of a large organization that endorses them. FMCA is one, I think, and many of the brand owner clubs. There is also a discount for a three year policy. I just paid $249 for three years, which made them price competitive with the GS promotional rate, as well as being a superior service.

I have Coach-net and Good Sams. If you break down, either one will send out a tow or a mechanic to look at your problem. If the mechanic comes and can't fix it, The tow is on you. So you just get the second one for the tow. Never had to use either for 3 years now. I figure since I'm doubling up, I hope I never have to.

Cheap insurance, considering a tow is at least Grand for a 45fter

We've had GS for over 10yrs and always had good service. We were towed 3 times on one trip. One time we had our car towed from home to our mechanic. Twice PU was towed to shop and TT was set up in campground. We were way ahead for a long time, maybe not anymore. No complaints from here.

I've had poor service from both Coachnet and Good Sam. So when I got the 79.95 offer my coachnet hadn't run I called them a couple of months after the offer had "expired" and in the process of the call got 79.95 for 3 years from Good I took it.
