WHO HAVE YOU USED AND BEEN VERY SATISFIED WITH HAVING A CLASS A and needing a tow or need a tire due to a flat and we do not carry a spare. Esp with maybe locked up rear wheel since usually they would tow by lifting front end and tow with rear wheels on the ground. So looking for the best at difficult situations. AND I am looking for best at best dispatching since I once had a situation with the Class A, told dispatch, exactly what the problem was and that it was a Class A motorhome 36ft long and she sent a pickup truck. SO want a good Roadside Assistance company to go with and what it cost you for a year of service. Thanks.

Only thing I ever used for was keys locked inside. It was Sunday and Coach Net had someone there in 30 min

My 40' Prevost has been towed 3 times in the 20 years I owned it by Good Sam without issue, ever.

I've had good service from Coach-Net over the years, and recently tried the service that Progressive Insurance provides, also with good results. When a previous Class A blew a rear wheel bearing, the tow operator had no problem hooking up from the rear and strapping the steering wheel down to tow it to the service shop.

Good Sam contracts out their roadside service plan, currently to Allstate Motor Club as I recall. Some of their previous contractors haven't been very well rated, but Allstate gets pretty good marks from the towing industry.

THANKS I am surprised no one yet has mentioned the roadside assistance from Family Motorcoach that now is Family RVing. I have used Coach-Net before and found them good but they all have gone up in price. USED Good Sam and was not satisfied with them as I mentioned. GOT to call tomorrow.

COACH-NET was 269 dollars for first year and then drops to $169 afterward. Family Motorcoach now called Family RV I think was $159 for the same thing so went with that, I do have Progressive roadside coverage but did not trust it will cover what these others cover and it only costs about $18. I will report if I have to use it and how they did. THANKS so much, looks like you all like CoachNet and I used to when I used them but they have really gone up in price. Last year I went without anything except the Progressive without realizing it. I thought I had committed to CoachNet but had not, YIKES. THANKS again for all your opinions, appreciate it.

Since FMCA decided to no longer be Family MOTOR COACH Assn., having to pay all that money to be a member of another Good Sam Club forced me to drop my membership after 20+ years. I don't need info on trailers, 5th wheels or anything other than a Class A/C and I sure am not going to pay someone to force that "stuff" into a magazine when I already get that from my Good Sam membership. I also get a discount at nearly every campground with Good Sam but only a few that offer an FMCA discount. FMCA no longer has any value "to me" so signing up for FMCA road service would just be wasting money on the FMCA membership to get the FMCA road service and I have never heard anyone praise the FMCA road service over Good Sam or Coachnet.
CoachNet has gone up how much? Is $199 vs. $250 per year really going to make you change your mind about having good service or being stranded?
