C: Coach Net. They have done a very good job the two times that I have had to have service.

Coach Net twice. First time the dog sitter locked himself out--We had given him only the dead bolt key and he accidently locked the other one. Coach Net sent the lock smith but wouldn't pay because we, the owners, were not in attendence. OH WELL!

Next time was a dead battery on the toad at SeaTac Airport on Christmas night. Took about an hour.

Wouldn't leave home without it!!!

Have had Good Sam for more than five years. We've had to call them for a tow twice and both times the tow truck arrived in less than 30 minutes.

I have used Good Sam emergency service now for over 15 years and would recommend them highly.
I have had flat tires as well as blowouts and they responded and handled them all very timely and with excellent service.

We've had Good Sam ERS for years but only had our first need for them (twice) last year as we had 2 tire failures (ultimately taken care of by Goodyear).

The first call was on I-45 between Houston and Dallas (hardly off the beaten path). We sat for 2 hours after calling Good Sam ERS only to have them call back to advise that they couldn't find anyone to change the tire. The second time 4 months later was on I-10 between San Antonio and Houston, and Good Sam ERS had someone on the way within 20 minutes.

So, from our experience, Good Sam ERS is batting .500

We have used both ERS and Coachnet. The longest wait was with GS ERS....over 2 hours in eastern Oklahoma.

Wow. Never heard of Coach Net til reading this thread. Sounds like a good sponsor for IRV2...!
Had Triple A in past life and just kept it when we sold the stick-house/converted to RV fulltime lifestyle. First time towing our Element with BrakeBuddy...battery dead when we stopped for the afternoon. Triple A showed up within the hour at Blythe, CA.

Have Good Sam ERS now for 7 years - five times I called them for roadside assistance, they responded quickly. Also used to have Coach Net but did not renew them this year. Won't be travelling much so I don't think I needed two.

I also use Coach Net. I used them twice and my wife used them once. My first use was a tow. My fuel injection pump went bad on my `02 GMC and the towed me 50+ miles back to my dealer without batting an eye. 2nd use was for a flat tire on my `06 Ford. Someone was at my side within 30 minutes. My wife was with a friend who locked her (her firend that is) keys in her car. She called me for the number and then she called Coach Net. Someone was there right away. I am very happy with Coach Net. Mt recent renewal was for the Platimum level that has added benefits that I thought would be helpfull for a fulltimer.
