I currently have AAA,wich is about to expire, and just got ads for both Good Sam and Camping World Road service Ins. Both of them are with Affinity and seem to have the same coverage for about the same price. My question is.... is there any difference in them and are they any good??

I just renewed with the Good Sam club for ERS which is Affinity..

Have not had to use them for an RV problem yet but nice to know they will come.

They provided excellent service for two auto problems I required - one needed to be towed on a flatbed and one needed a tire repair.

Prompt courteous and great service both times.

I highly recommend the Good Sam ERS.

Good Luck,

John S.

Big Dog,
We have had Good Sam ERS for about 5 years.
Unfortunately, we have had to use it 4 times for tire problems.
Each and every time, we got through, got fixed, and were on our way in less than one hour (even on a Sunday)!
Fast, courteous, service and they even called to followup!
Worth the money- for sure!

I just bought my class C MH, & just updated from standard AAA to AAA plus, I believe from $45 to $75, I'm not sure if that covers towing for a MH. How much is Good Sams' ERS?

AAA did just recently re-enter the RV service market. They don't yet have full coverage of the USA due to contracts with tow/service providers so in some areas you could be out of luck. That will change though as time goes on. You do need AAA Plus RV and it costs more. There are some benefits though using AAA in discounts they can get you at many attractions and other businesses. All of these companies use contractors to handle service so there are vast differences in the quality of service depending on where you need it and lots of other variables. Owners of Ford based motorhomes that are under warranty have a free service provided by Ford for all roadside emergencies. This service from what I understand is very good from the poeple I know that have had to use it.

In Canada you need CAA Plus RV if you want a motor home or trailer towed. I would think that there would be a similar choice in the U.S.
