[QUOTE=mike.t;1186147]Not quite correct sir. They may not "tow" it however my daughter and her husband lost a wheel bearing on the trailer. AAA sent a flatbed and took it to CW for repairs.
Maybe because it was the trailer check your booklet .If it was your tv I bet they wouldn't tow the trailer.It happen to me twice .I file a claim against them they did pay for my tow job and gave me a free yr.Then I drop the RV part I still have them for towing I dont want to leave my toys a long the road

This is a Ford/Chevy type of question. Some like Coach Net and some like Good Sam.
But like some as said, like insurance but good to have. I have had Good Sam since 1998 and used them twice with my motorhome. First time about 12 years ago, we were pulling a tow car about 250 miles, pulled into campground site. Unhooked tow car and no brakes on car. Like a dummy, I did not release the emergency brake all the way and burned emergency brake cable and needed a brake job. I called Good Sam. The tow truck was out within the hour and towed my car to a garage, no charge.
Second time, my MH was parked in drive way. I checked the air in tires. Inside rear had no air. I tried to pump up and would not accept air. Called Good Sam and tow truck was out in about 1 1/2 hour. tow driver had to take off both tires and fixed flat. Charged me $90 which I did not think was right but paid. I called Good Sam, sent paper work and letter explaining issue. Good Sam reimbursed me the $90.
So both times, my bad experience, but good experience with Good Sam. I continue to carry Good Sam although I received a free 1 year for Coach Net. Never used Coach Net and dropped them, after one year, to keep Good Sam because they can used for all my car, truck, travel trailer, and boat trailer for myself and wife. Coach Net would only cover TT and tow truck. When renewing they said extra for adding other vechicles which made them more expensive then Good Sam.

Good Sam would only take me the nearest facility to make repairs warranty or not and within so many miles. I was a long way from a service ctr.
So they are both bad but Coach-net is not as bad as GS

We have Good Sam. The only time we used it was when I locked the keys in the truck. They sent help quickly, no problem.

Coachnet. Used it 3 times in the first year we had the 5er. All 3 for flat tires. They were very good and quick. They must have a large network.

I have GEICO. Cost is $10 for 6 months. I broke down on the freewy south of Phoenix and GEICO sent a wrecker within an hour, (big one) and towed us to a repair shop 55 miles away. Did not pay one penny and did not increase my insurance rates.

Coach Net or Good Sam

Because my 5th wheel is new, it came with Coach Net. I did join Good Sam and have that coverage also. Had a problem with my truck. AAA would only handle the truck because I did not have RV coverage with them. No problem. Called Good Sam and was on hold for over 2 hours, then because of the time of day (night) could not help me. In mean time called Coach Net, and they were very attentive to my situation. Next year, when time to renew, it is Coach Net.

We have had GS Roadside Service 8 yrs, renewed yesterday. It's the only service we have had. during that time we have had 4 class As, and a 5er. Never used the service for the 6 mos we had the 5er. We have used it on 3 of the 4 class As. We have only had the 4th rig 2 mos.
Every time we called GS we received service, once being a broken door lock, part of the problem was that the rig was on a military base. GS found a repair service that was cleared by security to come on base, on a Sunday afternoon. So I am a fan.

We have been using GS roadside assistance since we began camping 11 yrs ago. Have only had to use it once(Thankfully). We had a flat tire upon arrival at a campground in Upper Michigan. Called Good Sam and with the help of Campground owner had assistance in 30 minutes. Very happy with Good Sam Roadside assistance.
