Coach-Net Roadside Assistance-Opinions

I am considering purchasing a Coach-Net plan instead of renewing AAA plan. Our unit came with one year Coach-Net plan but we never needed to use it. Price seems reasonable with FROG discount. I would like to hear from anyone who has had experience with Coach-Net or has an opinion.
Thanks

I might be biased, but we've had them for 12 years and have always been very pleased. We've used them about 4 or 5 times, from a double blowout on a Sportscoach the first year we had them to a tow last year when we had a bad fuel pressure sensor.

Our experience with them is why I contacted them about setting up a discount program for new and renewal coverage.

If you want new coverage, go through the link on the first page of the FROG website. For renewals, call their toll-free number (also on the site) and tell them you're with FROG.

We've had our AAA RV add-on for years. What's the advantage of switching to Coach-Net ?

Hey guys first of all AAA plus RV does not cover your trailer if your truck break down.They will tow it off the road for you to a safe place but will not take it home.I been thru it twice so I drop the RV part. The only way they will tow it if it is disable.If you look in the hand book it states that under the RV part.And I talk to Coach-Net and they told me they would tow it to a campground ,rest area or to a garage. So if anybody find something better please let me know

Thumbs down coach net

Yes when i was young and stupid. Never again. I had them once, and i should have forgotten about it, but they cost me out of my pocket 1500 bucks. Without all the detailes, if they were the only one left to choose from, i would take my chances. ( i'm just sayin)

Ya, its not the cost. Its the attitude in 2000. I paid them $320 for 3 yrs. I had a break down that was my fault, they made phone call but refused to pay the tow. After mounths of arguing i got my money back.

I've had to use Good Sam Road Asst. several times, not had a problem. I had to use Coach Net once, and a big problem. If it where to happen with Good Sam like it did you I would have 2 on SH---t LIST . Just remember this thread is an opinnion, everyone has one.
