A-Frame Campers! Do you use AAA or some other roadside service?

Going to be on the road by myself or with my daughter and I am wondering if I want to have AAA or some other service just in case? Anyone use something like that? Is it worth it?

We keep AAA for tow protection and the included extras (maps, apps). Be sure to get the coverage for long distance towing and retrieving both the camper and the tow vehicle.

I bought a subscription with extra towing to cover me during my road trip this summer. Normally I just rely on the tow benefits from my insurance. It's not great but it will help in the odd chance I need a tow.

Not an A frame but we carry good Sam. I think good Sam or coach net are basically the same. Have had both at different times. Check with all of them to make sure you will be covered in the areas you are travelling as some may have blackout areas.

After seeing this asked in several forums and on Facebook posts, I came to the conclusion that AAA was the most available and reliable. Of course, there were some pros and cons to all, but AAA seemed to have the most votes. I guess it makes sense--they have been around the longest and have the most serve areas around.

I already had AAA, so just updated to AAA Plus RV.

Our USAA automotive policy already has roadside assistance option for the tow vehicle. Not sure about whether tow of the A-frame is included on either policy.

Just a quick FYI--

While AAA coverage is effective almost immediately, the addition of RV coverage will not be in effect for 7 days after receipt of full dues. At least that's what they told me when I upgraded from basic to AAA Plus RV last month. Had I been aware of that, I would have added it a week before my trip started, rather than the night before I left, just in case I had any problems. I didn't have any problems, so no issue for me, but I thought it was worth mentioning to ensure that you have the coverage you want prior to your travels.

Extra info;
Our auto insurance had only minimal tow coverage (20 miles) and since we are often far from civilization we needed more. Also consider, if your TV quits you may need the camper for lodging till the TV can be repaired. It sometimes takes a day or two just to source parts. Nor would I want to leave my camper beside the road for any length of time.

I use allstate roadside service premier plan with RV coverage added . Pays for towing both TV and trailer if disabled up to 100 miles. It also covers motorcycles which most other plans don't . I get it through AARP but also available if not a member at higher cost.

Typically a trailer becomes a commercial tow and isn't covered without obtaining extra coverage.
