Coachnet vs Good Sams

Hello
I know this thread is somewhere in the forum, but I couldn't find it. I live in the north east, and basically RV from Ohio to the Atlantic, and up and down the East Coast and Canada.

Which would be better to get Good Sams or Coachnet?

Looking at the websites, Coachnet is straight up with the packages and coverage. $139 a year for platinum.

Good Sams website is a mess, but they only charge $60 for 3 years.

A lot less, but I guess you get what you pay for.

Any comments from those that have the services from these would be appreciated.

The one time I needed to use Good Sam's Roadside Assistance was on a Friday night about 8:30 pm. I got excellent service and an electrician was at my TT in about 45 minutes. I was very satisfied. I haven't had any experience with Coachnet.

Good Sam Roadside assistance is $79.95 currently per year for the basic plan. Where did you see $60 for 3 years?????? I just got off their web site & I am computer illiterate & I didn't have any issues navigating

I hear only good about Good Sams but I have not had to use it.

Good Luck.......

The $60 for 3 years with Good Sam's isn't for the roadside assistance, that's for their membership plan that gives you discounts at Camping World and various Good Sam affiliated campsites. The Roadside assistance is a separate charge.

I've also been considering which provider to use, as our free year of Coachnet ran out back in July. Especially after hearing a horror story from my brother where he threw a bearing in the middle of nowhere and the only saving grace was that our uncle who was with him had CAA RV+.

In my case (and probably helpful to the OP) I've been looking at these options:

CAA RV+ ($144 Cdn)
Join CAA - CAA South Central Ontario

Coach-net Basic ($89 USD)
Coach-Net - Plans

Good-Sam RV Standard (79.95 USD)
Roadside Assistance Plans for RVs and Autos - Good Sam

I haven't started my in depth comparison yet so I don't know if these are apples to apples or apples to monkeys. I figure I've got about 4-5 months before the season starts so plenty of time to shop around.

Oh, wait, I just noticed your signature says you have a 2015. Might want to check with your dealer and/or your paperwork. Most people on here have gotten a free year of Coach-Net with their FR. If you got it, then use that for the year and don't worry about who to use until next year (kind of like I am now).

20 bucks a year is good sams club/camping world memebership. GSRA is about the same prices as coachnet. I had GSRA at first, the one time I needed them I had faster response making the call myself and submitting for a reimbursment (which they did honor for the service charges and I paid for the tire.) I then had progressive as part of my insurance policy, I swear it was the same call center. My new 5er came with 1 year of free coachnet and I unfortunately had to use it for a tow when my truck decided it was tired of towing at 11pm in the middle of not much on I95 in NC. They had a proper tow truck out to me in an hour, got me to a campground and sent a truck the next morning to take my truck over to the dealer. Not a penny out of my pocket until the repair bill came and none of that bill was for towing.

Calling the dealer to inquire about it. All the paperwork is packed away under a winter cover in the 5ver in my yard.
