I for some reason have always had Good Sam, have used them several times. How "fast" you get help depends on where you are, what your rig is, what the problem is and where the service provider is located that can handle your problem/rig. In 2005 I had a burnt up wheel bearing near Wichita, KS. Called GS Road service, and in about an hour, I had this show up to take my trailer to the nearest repair facility that could do the repair.

I did have to back my trailer onto the lowboy ( with about 2-3 inches of extra space on each side of my trailer). It was approx. 4pm on a friday afternoon, I was taken to Adventure RV in Wichita, KS. They parked my trailer right next to their shop, they set it up so that it was stable for my mom & I to stay in, they got it connected to 30amp power, and water. Then the shop guys got to work on the burnt up bearing. I had the Alco Never-Lub axles that were checked & serviced before I had left for my month long trip. They stayed at the shop until 9pm working on my rig, stated back on it first thing saturday am, had a delay until monday getting a part. Mom & I pretty much had free run of the place, even on sunday (normally they are closed) but the owner came in to check on us, and do some catch up work in the office/store so that mom & I could venture out of the secure lot to explore the area.

Many years prior to that, towing my little 16' single axle Sunline had a brake problem, and Good Sam sent a large tow truck that could tow my entire rig to their shop to get the problem fixed.

I believe both Good Sam and Coach Net provide good service, but you have to realize that they have to find a "provider" that safely deal with your rig, whether it be changing a flat tire towing a 45' MH.

I will NEVER travel without some type of RV Roadside service. I have also, never been asked for any $$ by the service provider. Now lets say they show up and repair my flt tire, I fully expect to have an additional charge because they are "performing a service" that is NOT in the contract.
