Good Sam Roadside assistance any good?

On my other thread I discussed planning a trip. I would love get a feel for the Goodsam Road side assistance. I currently have it but have never used it. On the trip From Dallas to Yellowstone thought it would be a good insurance to have. Any thoughts?

Of course, the best insurance is the one you never have to use. I think a lot of the results depends on the area you are in when you need help. Some service is very fast others are half fast. Naturally you will mostly see negative response on a forum, although I have seen a lot of good service on this forum. I purchased it this year since the first year from Coach Net is over. Most of what I have seen is that is much better than AAA. Many like Coach Net also. I don't think you can go wrong with Good Sam in the long run.

I had to use Good Sam once. They responded quickly. Called me back. And had a service tech to me in a little over an hour on a Friday night. My one time use was very positive. I will keep the Good Sam policy.

Yeah, the first year on most Forest River products includes a year of coverage with Coach Net, so it looks like your are well covered if you bought Good Sam insurance also. If one can't help maybe the other one can, but hope you don't need either of them. You should have a letter in your owners packet that is from Coach Net.

Yes! Excellent. Have used it a number of times including Calgary, AB - home, Vegas and Yuma. Very good response and well worth the cost. We've had it 12 years.

I echo mcmilia. One dark Xmas eve my truck stopped running out in the middle of nowhere. The Good Sam responder kept with me as he tried to locate a tow. Finally found one that was open, but wasn't 'on his list'. Nontheless had him out to get me in less than an hour, and called back after to ensure that it worked out. I've used it a few other times in less trying circumstances with similar good results - and it covers all you vehicles and little bride too

Good Sam hires independent companies. Never had a major issue to judge that type of service however if it is something small that does not pay a lot the wait times can be terrible.

We have had Good Sam roadside Assistance for many years. We have had to use them many times for all sorts of problems from towing out of the mud (in Ontario) to fuel outage (in Oregon) to tire problems (in Florida). In every case they have been there efficiently and on time. They also constantly check that everything is going well when you are in trouble. They have been totally reliable for us and the price is right.
