If you have a Ford chassis it comes with 3 years roadside assistance free. Of course it only covers the chassis and drive line not any problems with the coach.

thank you for your input everyone. Enconcapt thank you for sharing you experience with AAA. tried to check AAA;s web sight and couldn't get on, it wanted my zip code. I'm in Canada, only a postal code. I think I will give GOOD SAM a try. They seem like there set up good for both Canada and the USA.
If you are in Canada check CAA it is the Canadian side of AAA. I have CAA RV plus, would not leave home without it. Had to use twice while towing once I ran out of gas(northern Ontario, did not realize there were no gas stations for over 120 miles.) The second had a bearing go while on the highway in BC (received slow service because of lack of communication by dispatcher). CAA gave me a year free for inconvenience.

We have AAA plus RV. The good side of that is that it covers all our vehicles all the time. Fortunately we've never had to use the service when we have been a trip, but we have used it several times over the years while at home/work and always gotten good service.

We did get a renewal offer from coach-net when our one year free service was coming to an end. I thought their price looked very reasonable - was $79 for the basic which didn't cover much and like $129 for the premium which offered a lot of coverage for the price. Again - never used them, so don't know how their service is, but sure seemed like a fair price.

Happy Holidayer,

I have been in Good Sam for the last few years. I've called them out 4 times and have been happy with the service.

2 calls for t fiver tire failures - first time was on the TCH outside Edmundston, NB at 1900 on Friday of the Thanksgiving weekend and they had a serviceman out me within 45 mins. Second time was West Palm Beach on the I 95' and again within 30 mins had the serviceman there.

The only time I was towed was around home here in NS when the water pump blew.

The last time was about 80 km from home heading down south last month. The hose clamp on the top rad hose rusted off. It was 0900 on a Saturday morning in Feb. I had a clamp so I did the repair, but I needed coolant. They could tow me no problems, but getting the coolant was more difficult. The tow would have been 100 km to the nearest Canadian Tire. Anyway, long story short, I had a friend nearby who helped out with minimum delay.

So all in all I can say they helped out and I will renew with them. The big thing for me is they will tow you and your trailer.

Andy

The big difference I saw was Coachnet covers winching/free a stuck vehicle

I had AAA and switched to GS, have not have a problem they are specialist when it comes to RV'S not and add on like AAA. They also cover your everyday car just as AAA. GS has some great plans depending on what you want and need. AAA sent a guy out in his car with no jack and asked if I had a jack. If I had a jack why would i even call them. GET GOOD SAM's worries are over with both cars and tt, 5ers and MH.

This is a good topic. My Coach-Net will expire soon. I live in Massachusetts.
Mass AAA does NOT support RV's. I have AAA for our car but can't get RV support.
I subscribe to Trailer Life and MotorHome. There are many Good Sam adds in both. I have seen nothing for Coach-Net. After reading this thread Good Sam seems to be the way to go.

Sam

We go with Sam after trying AAA et al. Sam covers husband and wife w/o extra charge, moreover Sam saved me on a dark rainy Xmas Eve when the timing belt failed on my truck in Mathews County, the second smallest county in VA. It took a couple of hours to find some one and get him out there, but they kept trying, and they succeeded. We've had to use them before and they had always come through, but Xmas Eve in Mathews county made me a believer.

That was a surprize not that the service you got but Mathews County. Melinda Moran your County admin. was our Town manager here in Clarksville Va. I'm on the Town Council here and worked with her for many years. If you ever see her please give her my best. It is a small world.....
