I have a membership with Coach-Net which is about to expire. I have never had the need to use the service in the past 5 years. I was wondering if anyone has a contract with them, can share their opinion or can lead me to others that I may want to compare prices. What about the Good Sam Roadside assistance plan?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

SUBLDO

Never has coach-net, but I would hiley recommend Good Sam, when I first started I had AAA until I was left setting on the side of the road for 5 houes the lady called back and informed me that there was nothing thay could do to help me. Within 30 min I had called a local tire dealer, and was back on the road in less than a hour. I would not reccomend AAA to any one, even for their personal car.

I've had Coach-Net for over 8 years. Had to be towed twice, and blow-out tires replaced 3 times. I HIGHLY recommend them! Great, quick service.

I'm not a fan of Good-Sam. Mainly, because of all the unwanted junk mail they send out. They took over Camping World memberships, which I did have. Now I'm getting all of the unwanted junk mail again! :evil:

I belong to EXXON travel club, also the chevron club and have USAA with roadside assist. I spoke with exxon about rv's and they said they do cover all my vehicles, same with chevron. Have not had a need to use either but..... Anyhow main thing is the life insureance from each. less than $10 a month so thats why I keep. I asked also about MC coverage when we went to canada a few years ago and yes they said the roadside also worked for them, but again I have progressive coverage for the bike.

If you are talking about major repairs I dont know about any of them. We went to colo springs for fathers day, stopped in NM at a rest area and a guy with a big MH was there said he had been waiting since 1100 hrs for help, they finally sent a wreck to tow to Las Vegas I think. Anyhow the tow operator said he was not a repair guy, but got under the guys rig and found a broken transmission wire, fixed it and they were good to go. The repair service I guess never did show!

I've been a Coach-Net member for several years and have nothing but positive experiences. When I needed a repair facility, they made the phone calls and found someone who could work me in.

I hate to be the spoiler here but I had Coach Net when I first bought my MH. They were great when my rig was under warranty but when that expired, the service was miserable.

If one has their insurance with USAA, they offer roadside assistance coverage for an exceedingly cheap few bucks a year. I've used it a couple times and have gotten excellent service. Since the rig isn't under warranty, it really is up to me where I want it fixed so all I need is towing or temporary repairs.

And if you are a dummy like me who once locked himself out of the rig, they even handle that. ;)

I've had coachnet for many years and used it once for a flat tire. They responded quickly and done what they needed to do and it didn't cost me a dime. One thing to remember is that if you are in a motorhome maybe that is why AAA didn't work for you very good. They are probably not prepared to handle motorhomes.

thanks for all the feedback. I was at Camping World having my RV serviced and found out that Good Sam had a sale on the emergency road service. I got two years for $99. Hope this was not a mistake.

In order to be covered by AAA, you must have AAA Plus. That covers Motorhomes, also gets you towed 100 miles free, in any vehicle.

Tried to use our Good Sam in Delaware last month. They were not helpful. Geico came through and found us a superb repair shop and tow. We had a bad and dangerous gas leak on our "lemon". Part had to be fabricated, and they did it while we and our two cats sat in a lovely park in Wilmington Delaware. Repair shop was Bob's truck repair in Wilmington Delaware btw.

I have used the Good Sam Road Service for a long time now, my hauler is a Volvo 420 and I have been stuck, belts replaced on the side of the highway, tires replaced with no problem but this is on the east coast on I-95, maybe because my hauler is a Class 8 truck service centers are available all the time and the techs who come to do the service have been super and GS reps have called to ensure I have received service and checked on me while waiting for service, so far I am totally satisfied especially for service on a class 8 truck, unbelievable.
