Good Sam Roadside assistance

$1026.00 and 3-1/2 hours later Good Sam got me a new tire after picking up a metal rod in our street side outside dually. Thank heavens for the TST 507 tpms alarm for a rapid depressurization. If it hadn't gone off we probably would have had blown out the inside dually.

So what did Good Sam roadside insurance do for you? Maybe I'm nieve that price seems high to me or is that really the going price?

That was my immediate thought. Price does seem high. What size tire did you need?

G 670RV 275/70 22.5 my whole idea posting this was to get some feedback on the issue. We researched the price for the tire and the best we found was $550.00 the worst was $750.00.
I have no idea what Good Sam did other than coordinate the tire replacement.

I bought the tire insurance when I first bought my Berk, can't remember how much it was but it pays for the exact thing that happened to you.

I'm not hearing good things about Good Sam roadside assistance. We bought it haven't used it yet. We bought the 5 year one and it doesn't expire until 2017. I don't know who is the best for RV's. We had AAA loved them but they don't do RVs. The only one that we found was Good Sam and it covers all our vehicles. I'm sad we dropped AAA after 20+ years.

goodsam has worked for us over the years, but never had to buy a tire yet, just had them changed or towed. that seems very high, and it was probably the service guy charging you to buy then pick up and bring tire to you. we have recently heard good things about coach net and may try them.

Just switched to coach net (price and reputation). Never had to use Good Sam, so no opinion either way. Also have tire insurance along with extended warranty. I can see having to pay for the tire, but I would think that the call and replacement would be covered.

I have had Good Sam Roadside since 2011 and had to use them only once. Did not need to have a tire brought to me, used my spare and got swapped out the next day.
No idea what an emergency tire purchase might cost.
I dropped AAA because their rate in 2011 was about $170 for just the cars and they wanted a significant amount extra for the motor home coverage. Good Sam is still less expensive for the RV and car coverage.
Just my 2 cents.
