I had it with AAA RV Plus twice. When I first got the AAA Plus RV I was told if I had to have both vec. told I would be charge for two tows that was fine with me .When I broke down they wouldn't tow my camper or boat.I was told being it was my tow vec that was broke down.I ask them what can break down on a boat trailer or camper.All I can think of is a flat or the axle.So I have Good Sams now I haven't had to use it yet and I hope I never do

AAA plus RV

How about any good experiences with AAA RV Plus ? We currently have AAA plus for our cars and were considering it for our future Motorhome purchase, but want to make sure before we commit to it. Any help or opinions appreciated.
Thanks

I agree, just like paying for fire insurance on our homes, hope we never have to see how good it is.

We've had Coach-Net since 2002, long before I came to work for Forest River. The first time we used them was for dual flat tires -- both right rears with the old Michelin XRVs -- on our Sportscoach on an interstate in St. Louis. From the time I placed the call, it was three hours and one minute later when we pulled back into traffic. We paid for the tires and nothing else. We've since used them about 4 or 5 times, always with great success.

NOTE THAT COACH-NET HAS NOW CHANGED ITS SERVICE LEVELS. There is now only a single level, with one program for motorized units and one for towables. You can get the information by clicking on the link at FROG - Forest River Owners Group.

If you call Coach-Net either to begin or renew coverage, let them know that you're a member of FROG to get a discounted price.

I still have AAA Plus but not RV They r ok when towing on a normal break down.I had to get my dad twice when I broke down with my toys. Once only about ten miles but the other was a 107 miles .Now they did tow my truck back and I had to pay the diff. of about 22.00 bc I was over my limit that was fine .My understanding is if you get Good Sam platium they will tow you and your toys anywhere

Might be Over Kill for a Motor Coach

We have used it twice for china bomb tire explosions on our fiver and we were glad to have it.

However, depending on the age of a motorhome, it may be over kill. Most motorhome policies come with towing coverage and offer endorsements/coverage upgrades that would equal what these stand-alone policies provide, for much less.

In addition, many of the drive train manufactures, such as Ford on the Triton 10 engines have 3 year or 36,000 miles or better.

Did you have AAA RV plus or another plan?

Progressive, basic towing, no endorsements.

I just bought my coach, used, a 2014. The Ford warranty is transferable and also includes roadside assistance.

So essentially, double covered for towing and still well within Ford’s warranty.
At three years, I will take out the upgraded towing package through whoever is ensuring my coach at that time.

For the Fiver, I had FR/Coach-Net.

There are many variables that cause good and bad experiences and many times it is based on where in the heck you are when you need service. If you’re on an Interstate highway when you need service I think you have a good chance of having a good experience. If you’re driving on state roads in an area of the country with a low population density (think Wyoming, Idaho, Maine, N. Dakota etc.) the chance of a bad experience increases. The bad experience is usually because of a slow response time. Sometimes the bad experience is because of unrealistic expectations of the ERS.

Regardless of which ERS plan you purchase, I hope you never have a need to use them in your travels.
X'2 use to have the add-on for AAA, they sent a guy in a car and he asked if I had a jack....
