Roadside assistance

I use Good Sam Roadside Assistance.
We switched to them July of 2011 right before taking a trip from Virginia to Pensacola, FL. The price was right, about $100, and they cover ALL of my vehicles. My Sunseeker RV, wife's car, daughter's car, and my motorcycle.
Unlimited mileage towing to a repair facility was the biggest selling point. They have tire change service also. I clipped a curb and took out my starboard outside dual tire. Called Roadside Assistance and they had a tech there to change the tire in a reasonable time. No additional charge, just a small tip (not required, but a nice thing) to the guy as a thank you for the good work. Good Sam also has a trip routing web service that seems to work fairly well. It takes your vehicle info like mpg and helps pick a route, has grade warnings and all.

Side note - Got another missive Saturday from AAA asking us to come back to them, to the tune of $173 a year for the cars. No RV, no motorcycle, limited miles free towing. Sure they have travel services and tour books and maps, but we use the web services as well as the old fashioned Rand McNally atlas for quick and dirty information.

Not a salesman for Good Sam Roadside Assistance, just a happy customer.

I have had Good Sams ERS for many years and used them twice. Once was a major breakdown of my truck while towing. I'm very pleased with the service.

Because of the purchase of the new Silverback, I currently have Coachnet also, but haven't had the opportunity to use them yet (thank God).

Coach-net here. Used 3 times all on our vehicles. Think they are great, quick to respond. I think about 110.00 a year

I have the Good Sam Emergency Roadside Service for the first time this year (we're using our Fiver a minimum of 1 week out of each month) and thankfully haven't had to use them, but I've heard so many great things.

And...they are RV specialists, plus as mentioned before - they cover all of our vehicles, so my wife is covered if she's out of town without me.

Good peace of mind.
