Coach Net or AAA
Would like to get some opinions about which is best. We have been AAA members for quite a few years, and when we have needed them, have been very happy with their service. I have never used Coach Net, but did renew recently, after my complimentary year expired.
I currently pay $113 yearly for AAA Plus, for myself & my wife. I recently inquired about the cost of upgrading to the RV plan with AAA, and was told it would be about $30 more if I remember correctly. That would also cover me when towing any trailer, to include utility (which I do own & use) and boat trailers, along with my travel trailer. With AAA I can be towed up to 100 miles free, and can choose to have it towed to my destination of choice at no extra cost as long as it is within the 100 miles. After that I would have to pay the extra mileage.
I paid $79.50 to renew the Coach Net Gold package, which also includes both my wife and I. When I called back to make sure I understood the coverage, I was told that it would cover us in whatever vehicle we were in, just like AAA, and also covered our travel trailer, but did not include any other trailers, such as the utility trailer. I was told that it would tow us unlimited miles to a repair facility that was within their network, but if I chose to have it towed home, that they would cover us up to the mileage of the closest repair facility (in network), and the rest was on us if it happened to be further.
I now have both services renewed, so I am good to go for another year with each, so I have a little time to do some research before next year, to decide which I want to keep. I'm sure there are probably services and details I have left out when I quoted their service, but that's what I can remember off the top of my head. I think I know which way I am leaning, but I wanted to get some feed back, or opinions of people that may have used either, or both.
Just for the record, my camper sits on a seasonal site, and will only get pulled to another campground two or three times a year at most, more likely only once a year. I sure I will be taking it back to FL, which is over 1000 miles (one way), and I wanted to make sure I am covered when I do take it somewhere else. Any opinions, experiences, stories, would be welcome, so please weigh in with what you have about the pro's and con's of both if possible.
Thanks in advance!
