Progressive says Towing to nearest “Qualified” repair facility. Good Sam says Towing to nearest “Professional” repair facility. I have both. I’m going to drop one just not sure which one. By the way Camping World should tell people that the standard Good Sam roadside service doesn’t cover motor homes. When I called Good Sam I received the free upgrade but I feel like it’s some sort of gimmick.

IMO, sometimes professionals are not qualified.

Qualified and professional are vague terms that can mean what ever they want it to mean. Which means they mean nothing useful.

When I had Good Sam and a GMC Motorhome they would only take me to a Chevy dealer. It was a '75 GMC and had the Toronado front wheel drive. I had to pay $829, to get towed to a proper place. No more Good sam anything for me.

Like any insurance, it is easy to like a company until you have a problem.

So, the operative question is how many times have you used their service and what as your experience?

Not being negative, but want to make sure how to read anyone's post on insurance.

I have Coach Net and have used it just recently to tow a vehicle to a local shop. Service was quick and there was no question as to where I wanted it towed. Several years ago I used them to unlock my truck after someone (guees who) locked the keys inside.

Another Coach Net, been 5 years and one major tow. TV broken down towing the 35ft 5W. Two trucks from Mancos CO to Cortez CO but the hitch was they had to come from Durango as it was the closest town that had trucks to handle the two units, all they asked for was a signature. I asked what the cost would have been and was told $900+. Add that to a couple tire changes, one on a week old tire with a bolt in it. [emoticon] Now search Good Sam Roadside ....... no comparison.

I'm with FMCA's Saferoad program. Membership in FMCA gets me repatriation insurance (FMCA Assist) in case I can't drive our motorhome back home and also covers getting those with me back home as well as any pets. Even if I'm in my RV, it covers getting me (or my remains) back home anywhere in the world. You couldn't buy a policy like that for what it costs for membership in FMCA. FMCA Assist Information

FMCA membership is now $75/year and the Roadside Assistance is another $74 which includes concierge services and technical support. I'm told Coach Net was sold to an investment firm and many of the employees formed the Saferoads company. There's comparison chart on this page FMCA Roadside Rescue

I may be a LT member of GS but I'll never let my membership in FMCA lapse till we're done RVing. It's the only major RV club that's a non-profit operated for the benefit it the membership.
