Advice solicited on Good Sam vs AAA assistance plans
For years, when traveling around with my camper with our F350, I had and still have an AAA card with RV Plus.
In 20 years I actually needed it only twice.

An acquaintance of mine, after seeing my newly acquired  U320, told me I should get Good Sam...

My  biased opinion is to save your membership fees for the day that you need it.  In my opinion, both are deplorable (here have we heard that word before?) and so is FMCA.

When we broke down in our previous coach, about 50 miles east of Winslow...

One tows you the closest safe area. One tows to a shop Of your choice.  We are changing this week and will have a close look at AAA

Using both is an interesting idea, I assume there is nothing in the contracts that prohibits that.

Coach net for us.  A lot more than just a tow.

Coach Net.   They have the knowledge and contacts for big rigs and large diesel pushers.

We have had AAA for 28 years. They put the spare on the U300 without any problems at an event where I had a suit on. But the coverage seems to be less and less as time goes by. Going to look at Coach Net this next year as an addition to AAA.

Nice...

I checked Coach Net it out on the internet, sounds promising.
Will read more details.
Unrelated question, what is a "Commercial Member" on the Forum?

Coachnet. I avoid anything in the Good Sam family. I think AAA service must depend on where you are at the time. They stranded me on the road years ago.

Coach net for us. They towed us to where we wanted to go. No questions asked. The tow bill was $1,700. Our dues (sub $200 and cover anything we drive or tow) were well shy of that $1,700.

Coach Net for us as well.  I think I helped pay for Bigdog's tow because in over twenty years with Coach Net I have only had to call on them twice.  I had a blow-out on the tag axle of my...

Can you get Coach Net over the internet? I looked at their website and it seemed like you had to go through a local distributor.

I am convinced.

Before my first longer trip I will join Coach Net.

Not because I think I will come out financially ahead, but the peace of mind I can buy to help me in a stressful situation.

AAA was $129 a year for rv plus that I just signed up for this year.  Never had tow insurance in 54 years of driving.

Fast forward ECU dies and it's a 92 mile tow on a 100 mile limit. $1121 covered. 

My progressive policy has $750 road hazard...

For those considering signing up (for the first time) with Coach-Net, I would recommend calling them on the phone rather than doing it online.  I say this because my ...
