All I've had with my AAA RV ins is several tire blowouts. They have responded quickly and painlessly each time.

Realize that AAA RV is a regional program, not national such as Good Sam or coach net. In northern CA, AAA would not even tow my truck, (did not have trailer at the time). Instead AAA just left me on the side of the highway.

I had the free coach net, I called them and never did get a tow truck. After about 3 hrs. I gave up and called a towing company and they where there in 15 mins. I now have Good Sam's I hope if I need them they are better and got a discount bought 2 years at $79.00 per year but they offered 3 if I wanted it for the same price.

Hey guys this is what I found out about Good Sams. If you get the platinum one that cost 159.99 for 15 months for new customers and 179.99 for old.They will tow you anywhere you want up to 100 miles that is both truck and trailer.That what I was told and that what im looking for.I contact AAA and I didn't get a response yet.So I will get it for a back up along with my AAA in time

I had Coach-Net on a previous trailer that I owned. I called them and they basically told me that they couldn't help me. I ended up spending a few hours fixing the trailer myself (enough to get it to a repair shop). The next day I made sure to change vendors. I am now with Good Sam but have not had to use them yet.

Byron, I'm sorry, and quite frankly surprised, to hear of your experience. I've had to call Coach-Net four times with RV issues, starting about 10 or 11 years ago with a double blowout on the right rear tires of a Sportscoach.

Three hours and one minute later we were back on the road with two brand new tires. I paid for the tires themselves, but for nothing else.

My most recent call on an RV was last June, when they dispatched mobile service, and later a tow, when we had a high presser fuel sensor go bad on a CAT engine. They also delivered fuel so that I could continue to run the generator as needed in 104-degree weather.

We've called them twice over the years with issues on the car, and they've always come through like champs.

BTW, FROG gets nothing from your membership with Coach-Net. The $10 discount goes into your pocket. Forest River thinks highly enough of their service to provide a free membership with any new Forest River RV you purchase.

I'm not trying to say Coach Net is bad, I'm sure that I caught them on one of those rare occasions, but I just didn't want to take that chance again. As many other people have mentioned they have had good experiences and bad with others. I can say I am fortunate in the fact I have not had to use my coverage since that day.
