Best Roadside Assistance?

I"m sure this has been asked before but in this ever changing world I have to ask again, which one is the best, is it Coach-net, Goodsam or AAA or another one. Mine is up for renewal and I'm trying to make an informed decision can you help?

You don't know quality of service until you use it.

AAA was very expensive for the RV. We went with Good Sam for RV and kept AAA for the car (free maps etc). We belong to FMCA and they provide Travel Assist.

Good Luck with your decision.

All are good and all are bad, really. You can name any one of them and you'll get opinions both ways. It depends on where you are, who the contracted service provider is, and the workload of that service provider.

I've had AAA for decades. I have used them for cars and trucks, and they have always been responsive and have always sent the appropriate response vehicle. Thankfully haven't yet had to use them for my 5er. I hope I don't have to test out that response.

I talked to a local towing service dispatcher. He said they provide their services to all of them. However, he did say that if it is very busy, they will prioritize base one reimbursement rates. I asked who provides the best reimbursement rates and he said AAA seemed to .

Moral of the story...pick one. AAA, Coachnet, and Good Sam all use local services, so in most cases will use the same company, no matter who you have. I have used AAA forever, so just stay with what worked for me and my local dispatcher said in a crunch it would make a slight difference. The comment he made about the reimbursement rates sealed it for me.
