1st I am not going RVing Full Time. I just got an older Chevy conversion van. Since I am handicap I figure this would work for short trips that a healthy person could do in 1 day. I am thinking of a radius of 150 to 200 miles from home. & while I dont plan to go till Van is 100% still things can go wrong. That being said. I looking for something where I can get help changing a tire To needing towed home.
And besides the 2 I already mentioned IF you know of others please add them & pros & cons about their service Thanks!!

AAA does not tow RV's, per se., but you can call them to check about Conversion Vans. I had the Good Sam Roadside Assistance plan for three years. I was very satisfied with it, until the day came that I needed to be towed, because I had a broken strut.

It took them over two hours to get a tow truck to me, and then, they refused to tow it to my mechanic. Their policy is to tow it to the nearest repair facility. I have a private mechanic, and I won't let anyone else work on it. Plus, he extends me credit when I'm broke. I had to fight with them to tow it to him, and as soon as it was ready to expire, I got AAA.

I have my motor home on a AAA plan for road side assistance which includes towing, the cost is $40.00 a year. They have a plan called AAA Plus which would cover your van and it includes towing, I think the cost for that plan is $30.00 a year.

AAA Rate must really vary by state, Plus was over $80 many yrs ago. Basic is $58 + extra for travel planning and extra for spouse / kids. Currently I am traveling risky (W/O a plan EXCEPT Road service on INS policy $1.50/month $500/ occurrence)

For those who have Class A's I recommend Coach Net roadside assistance. They know how to help the big rigs.

Good Sam member here and had to use the plan 3 times in one year for our personal vehicals not the RV and only one trip was a tow job. We got a letter saying we were "overextending our benifits". Guess who won't be spending $109 next April?
