Thank you for the heads up, WatsnJa89!

I ended up going with the FMCA. And I ended up having to use it, this spring. I put in my claim in March, and haven't been refunded for my expenses yet. But they are still communicating by email. They said they are just extremely swamped because of covid.

I'll try to update here if anything ever happens.

Coachnet, one of the reasons I have them, they will get wife & RV home if needed. The plus is their road side assistance is top notch. 1st question has always been are you safely off the road. Major break down a few years back, tow truck for TV & 1 ton dully for the 5W. Sign the bill, asked driver what the cost was and was told $900 plus. They put the 5W in an RV park, and TV to the repair shop. Apologized for the time it took as the closest could handle the call was over an hour away from me. Took about 1.5-2.0 hrs before they where on scene.

You are refering to a towing service for your vehicles.

The OP was talking about emergency evacuation if you are incapicated

It sounds like Edd505's saying that coachnet is both, bundled together. Is that correct?

MASA Now when I bought it it was a single payment for life. IT did pay for my Gas bringing my wife's ashes home from South Carolina.


Home is where I park it.

It seems like people are conflating several different types of insurance coverage.

Some plans will drive your vehicles home if your family doesn't have a skilled driver remaining; others will not. Some will provide air fare &/or hotel coverage for family members to be at bedside, if appropriate.

Some will cover air ambulance costs to take you from the accident scene to the closest hospital or clinic; some will cover it to the closest trauma center; and some will cover it all the way to your local trauma center or rehab facility near your home.

It's all a matter of reading the policy terms VERY CAREFULLY before signing on the bottom line -- long before you need to use it!
