We have Good Sam ERS. The only time I have ever tried to use it was in Bennettsville SC when I blew a tire on the trailer. The closest service shop they had to Bennettsville was in Charlotte NC, some 100 miles or more to the west. While we still have it, I am not convinced that it is worth it unless I break down in a major city or on a major interstate, which is not as likely as breaking down in the back roads. I just changed it myself and went on.

I've bought Alberta Motor Associations (CAA) Premier RV coverage. Tows up to 320 km (200 miles), includes two days of car rental if tow vehicle is in shop, up to 2,000 for accomodations when RV is in collision, $600 if in for repairs and at site repairs when possible. I've had my RV two years and last year did call them for service. They came right to the campsite to change my tire that had picked up a nail. (sure I could have dont it myself - but why when I paid for the service).

I did learn that the rims that come on the Rockwood Ultra-light do not fit onto the spare tire holder at the back of the trailer, the damaged tire had to go into the back of the pickup. The actual repair to the tire was not covered at the tire shop.

RE: I read above that AAA service levels vary, I'm told by CAA that AAA will honour the CAA coverage. If I find different they will have one unhappy camper-customer.

I have State farm Insurance "emergency roadside assistance" on my truck policy and it covers the truck and trailer. they will change flat tires (truck and trailer), jump starts,running out of gas, etc. I call the facility and State Farm will reimburse me for the service preformed. It will include towing the truck to a certified repair shop and also getting the trailer to the nearest campground per our choosing. the cost is about 5.00 per year. the coverage and cost will vary per state.

That free year is just for changing your tire and nothing else.

The basic GS Roadside Assitance is now $79 per year.

Before I plan my big trip I plan on buying the Good Sam Roadside Assitance for $79. In most cases I can change a flat tire but if my engine or transimission had a problem and needed a tow for both truck and trailer it would be well worth $79 .
