FMCA vs. Coachnet Road Service
Has anyone used the FMCA road service? We switched from Coachnet this year and just renewed but I am having doubts primarily because of FMCA's awful website. It's as if they reached back in time, found a dBase III programmer, gave him an off the...

If I'm not mistaken, the actual FMCA roadside assistance service is contracted out to another outfit.  All FMCA does is take yer money.

I remember a thread a while back where this was discussed...

Found it:    Insurance Renewal Time

Thanks to all. Directly to the that site is a better experience. I am easily annoyed by poorly designed websites. Get cranky.

How do you contact SafeRide on the phone to talk about their service? I'm not an FMCA member. In looking to renew our Coachnet 250.00 per yr is  bit pricey. X2 on websites.

We switched to the Escapees road service, which is also SafeRide (I think). Haven't had to use it yet, so can't compare to CoachNet. We were pleased with the service we got from CoachNet, but when it came time to renew last year the price was...

We like CoachNet.  It is more expensive than it was a few years ago.  They have been excellent on the two times we needed some help.  I am pretty sure we are still money ahead.  The FMCA plan also requires you to be an FMCA member. Add that into...

I don't usually recommend Good Sam's anything simply because I dislike Camping World. However, I have their roadside assistance on both the RV and the personal cars. We got it when we purchased our first RV, I haven't had to use is for the...

My toad towing is covered under it own insurance policy. Coach Net charges $99 a year for just coach coverage. They do not advertise it, you must call and ask for it.

I've had Good Sam, Coachnet, and now FMCA SafeRide. This is in the course of 30+ years. Only had one bad experience, that was GS using a stupid tow operator who incorrectly towed my coach. It got loose and suffered damage that should never have...

I waffled back and forth on Coachnet, Good Sams and FMCA SafeRide up until our first trip. Finally just pulled the trigger on SafeRide, hopefully I won't need it however it I do I will evaluate their service and annual cost to make a decision at...

Tom, when we had our first Foretravel, we purchased GS extended repair policy and experienced the same results!  Had to fight for every nickel and the service centers hated them.  They said they either took forever to pay and then would only pay...

Curious if anyone has AAA RV Plus coverage and if they have comparisons of cost to other providers.  We have AAA and have used it only once for an RV tow.  They towed us 185 miles (34' Class A with a ATV trailer attached), and when dropping us...

I have an FMCA Roadside Assistance testimonial to share.  Today we went to the storage to take out Carmen's Fiat and it would not start.  We discovered that her alternator was seized and not allowing the engine to turn.  After many failed...

Chris, we had AAA on SOB coach and discovered too late when in rural Arkansas that the package sold by your local state is for that state only, since each states AAA is a individually owned entity. Yes there is reciprocity where other states...

That comment about AAA being a state by state coverage had me shaking my head as we have car and motorhome coverage thru our BCAA which is an offshoot of your triple A? Now our BC policy does cover us in all states so would derived how/why this...
