What you are asking about is an emergency road service like ERS from Good Sam or Coachnet. We have had and used both, and either can have a wait based on your location and/or weekend traffic.

As for clubs, there is FMCA, Escapees Good Sams and a host of others and they serve all sorts of needs. So try a few as a guest and see what flips your fritter.

For road side service I have been very impressed with Coach Net.

I belong to GS and FMCA. Like them for their news letters and magazines. The 10% discount at participating parks is also nice. I also belong to Passport America who gives a 50% discount at participating parks (some restrictions apply but easy to deal with).

At the end of the day I value my Coach Net road side assistance membership above all others.

Yep... CoachNet for roadside assistance. If you go full time, I think that Passport America is a no brainer and you'll have to choose a state for domicile. Texas is one popular choice and is what we chose. Escapees has been great for that purpose and they have a dozen or so club owned parks around the country where you can stay for under $100/week.

Good luck.

Rick
