If you follow all the various RV forums online you will find that Coach Net seems to be the best. That is what I have. Joe

We had a blowout on a Class A motorhome, 38'. Good Sam sent a guy with a little red hand jack. He wanted us to use our levelling jacks to lift the RV high enough to change the tire. No thank you! We switched to AAA RV/Plus.

From what I hear, the same guy with a little red hand jack will arrive. I have been on RV forums and RVing for years and the winner appears to be CoachNet for road-side service. I am presently signed up with both Good Sam and CoachNet. When I used Good Sam, I was satisfied, but I asked the tow truck driver which service he would want for himself because he worked for ALL of them. His answer was CoachNet. He said that they seemed to go out of their way to satisfy customers and some things that they approved even surprised him. So, because of that, I am phasing out Good Sam in favor of CoachNet. If you do a search on the larger RV forums you will find many RV'ers reporting bad experiences with AAA RV. It is also very important to let the dispatcher know that you need the heavy duty rig to be sent because your coach is large. Try iRV2 forum for info. They have recently reached 50,000 members! Happy travels, Joe

I had AAA, blew a tire, they wanted to TOW my 40' with car trailer to a Midas muffler shop (nearest) place in their computer. Idiot did not know what a 40' RV with trailer was. It eventually cost me $900 for roadside service and tire. I switched to Good Sam. They did a great job when a RV tire went flat on trip. BUT. last night my car almost blew up. I called Good Sam (Sat night 830pm). The rep slammed me to Mercedes Benz road service, guy said would cost $500 to tow me. I exploded. Called back, three time each time rep put me on hold for over 15 minutes. Finally got rep on phone, "sorry sir you car is not in your profile". 30 minutes late. "sir you are over the 25 mile range of FREE tow, you will have to pay. How will you pay?",,,,, this went on for hour.. she wanted credit card number. etc.. A good samaratian stopped and gave me oil to get to store with at 10pm. So GS or AAA, each has it faults.. so you have to be sure of your needs and what they tell you. AAA told me they would cover flat tires, NO.. they tow you.. to a store that has no idea how to change a RV tire. I think i will investigate a 18 wheeler service. They have to tow big rigs and fix their flats. I reckon the end is .. there is NO perfect great service..

We use Progressive, which is our Class A insurance also. They have always been right there when we needed them.

Actually AAA sent my daughter the same letter for her car. The one plus that Good Sam has over AAA is the unlimited towing mileage. AAA has mileage limits. We belonged to AAA before Good Sam, and would never go back to AAA.
