After comparing GS and Coach Net, we've decided to go with Coach Net. Had the chance to use their service once when we had a flat tire. So far, quite satisfied with the service we got.

Good Sams has offered emergency assistance for rver's and I was wondering has anyone applied for this protection and is it worth the yearly payment? Has anyone used this service and could give a review.

Well first of all lets all get on the same page. Are you talking about Good same emergency road service or are you talking about Good Sam Emergeny assistant plan that provides transportation for the person, drives or takes your RV home, gets your spouse back home and many other benifits? So let us know what plan you are talking about and we can go from there. For those that don't know about the GS emergency evacuation plan here is a link.

Good Sam emergency plan.

The good sam emergency road service is a different plan.

Good Sam Raod service

I beleive that the OP is asking about the GS Emergency evactuation plan, and not the road service, we will see if he comes back to clear this all up. Any way if you are interested, click on bothe links to see the difference. I don't beleive coach net offers a plan like this but could be wrong

Now let me get this straight; an air ambulance (Helicopter) costs $ 7,500.00 just to get it into the air and heading your way. A medically equipped fixed wing air ambulance costs $ 12,000.00 just to get it into the air and heading you home. The average RV cost of $ .50/mile just in fuel just to operate and many of us are at least 1500 miles ($ 750.00 + return airfare for driver) away from home during the cold winter months but both FMCA and Coach-Net can guarantee you this service at NO COST
Only one word: AMAZING!!!!!
Yes truly Amazing what some people will believe.
I see by your signature, you sell a extremely expensive competing service....amazing how some can openly sell a commercial product, while others get slapped for it.

Hi All.

We have had both Good Sam and Coach-Net. And yes we compaired all the Benifits of both. Dollar for Dollar, you just can't beat what Coach-Net offers.

We switched quite a few years ago, Would never go back to Good Sam. Why pay for extra's when its free with Coach-Net.

Good Luck. Happy Travels. Dan & Jill

If you want emergency evacuation service, join FMCA, it is a free benefit. If you want roadside service and towing, get Coachnet.


One of the great free benefits of FMCA membership. In case of an medical emergency FMCA will make arrangements to drive your motorhome back to your home address. There are a lot of other free member benefits under the emergency assistance program and are all included as part of your FMCA membership.

The 'Life Flight' insurance is economical because so few people ever need it.

Spread out the cost over 10's of thousands of policy holders and yes, it sounds like a bargain because the premiums are so low. But actuaries figure the price of policies based on how often people need that kind of coverage and I am pretty sure they got the cost right, plus a nice profit.

They have a program up in Alaska that's pretty much the same that's only $100 per year. Has a good reputation too.

The fact that I haven't read any negatives about those programs over 8 years of perusing RV forums doesn't really mean anything, I suppose, but I can't remember a time when the holder of those types of insurances said anything other then how happy they were to have it.

For being in direct competition and one that stands to lose business, I'm curious what this "unwise" decision is.. ? Frankly I’m surprised that a moderator hasn’t edited your comments out as they clearly affect your business.

Have you actually looked at the emergency medical coverage that FMCA provides to its members at no additional cost?
