Roadside towing assistance

I've been a member of AAA do years. ( not including RV) I have used there service several times over those years, always very happy with the service. However since RV coverage is an upgrade its time to evaluate the options available, AAA seams to be the most expensive. I have one year of Coach Net ending in 2016. So in the near future I'll want to make a choice between, AAA, CoachNet, BigSam, and or others that may be brought up.
Quick votes and or your experiences would be awesome to here....

I use State Farm Auto Ins. They respond to me once on a early Sunday morning to fix a flat on my first 5ER, that we owned in 2008. This was in Greeley Nebraska on I80, we live in IL.

Other than different Insurance Co I do what Jim34L does. My Insurance Company offers a very reasonable option.

If you own a motorhome I donít think it matters who you buy your ERS from. However, if you own a fifth wheel or travel trailer the only way to go is with Coach-net or Good Samís ERS. These are the only two that are designed specifically for the RVer. Between the two I think itís six of one half dozen of another. My opinion of course.

Before buying any ERS through your insurance carrier ask these questions. If my truck breaks down will you tow both the truck and the trailer? If they answer yes, thatís good, because no one wants to unhitch and leave their trailer on the side of the road. Next question, if the repair facility where my truck is taken wonít allow the trailer to be dropped there will they find a place to store the RV while the truck is being repaired? If they answer yes to that question then go ahead and buy it.

Have had Coach Net since 2008 when I got the first year free from FR. The key difference for me from an insurance company's roadside assistance is that Coach Net or an equivalent also provides technical support if something goes awry with your RV.
Shopped AAA one year, but was more expensive.
Had a flat on my personal car, called Coach Net, the service company that showed up couldn't free one of the lug nuts (chrome sleeve around the nut kept spinning) and an actual contracted tow truck would take about 45 minutes. A sheriff deputy on the scene said he could get a tow there in under 10 minutes. Spoke to Coach Net, explained I had an infant grandson on board, and they readily agreed to the tow service to which they did not have a contract. I had to pay the service upfront, but Coach Net e-mailed me a form and then reimbursed me without a hassle.
(Sheriff turned out to be an RVer so we had a nice chat about favorite campgrounds).
