I just switched from USAA to Harford AARP last week. Gonna save almost 400 dollars a year.

AAA Plus RV will not tow your travel trailer if the truck has broken down but the TT is otherwise fine.

Thanks again for making me aware of this limitation.

Think I'm going to look around for alternatives
TRIGUY If you fine any please let me know .Try your car ins. and there is Good Sams and Coach Net and they tell me they will tow your trailer to a campground or garage.

I've done some shopping and found that GMAC is a good value. They allow for a credit back for the months you take collision off for storage (~$13/mo), and they offer $0 deductable if you have Camping World do the repairs, such as awning damage etc.

This got me thinking too so I dropped in to inquire about my AAA Plus RV policy. After asking lots of questions I was told my trailer would be towed up to 100 miles if the truck breaks down. Looks like I have a bit of research to do.


While I was there I did get a insurance quote on the truck along with a quote on insurancing both the RV & truck. Even with doubling the deductables it was still $200+ more per year than what I currently have. The good news is that I got a free mini duffle bag while I was there.

Granted, I haven't used it so cannot prove it though my own experience, but, through the description and through their conversations with me, I have no reason to believe they would not tow the trailer if my truck broke down.

Of course, I could be wrong and in for a rude awakening when I need the service


TRIGUY On page 6 in the 2012 handbook under AAAPlus RV it states. 100 miles of towing for eligible RV,motorcycles and travel/boat trailers That have become MECHANICALLY DISABLED.So that tell me if your truck breaks down your trailer is not cover. I was told when I bought it the first time I was cover but would be charge for two tows that was find with me.

I went back to AAA to get the coverage in writing so I can review it in detail. The AAA I belong to is Southern California Auto Club. Under this policy my trailer would be covered to be towed along with my truck even if the TT is not mechanically disabled. If I belong to a AAA in Northern CA the coverage could be different.

I didn't get a handbook but was given a copy of the "Member Guide". I will visit another location and see what I can find out.

We have Good Sams emergency road service (covers all vehicles) for towing and roadside assistance. The trailer is covered under Allstate for around 120 a year. It covers value of trailer, content theft and the usual collision and liability details w/250 deductible.

I sent AAA a questioner to see if all policies are the same across the country.
