I have purchased Coach-Net for years, but have never really had need to use their assistance. My subscription lapsed and when I went to renew the price had gone up substantially. In addition I read many comments on a deterioration of their service.

In addition, I read many negative comments on Good Sam service.

That leaves FMCA. Priced in the middle and comments no better or worse.

I know there have been many threads on this subject over the years, but since these companies change quality frequently, I'd appreciate any comments or thoughts on which might currently be the best value. Thanks.

FMCA and the Escapees RV Club both use SafeRide Motor Club as their ERS provider, and Good Sam uses Allstate Motor Club as their provider. On the other hand Coach-Net is an ERS provider that other companies, such as Ford, contract with as their ERS provider. Your vehicle insurance company may also offer an ERS plan, usually at a lower rate than the independent plans, but with limited benefits. Progressive uses Cross Country Motor Club, and Allstate is obvious, but I don't know who the others use.

I have AAA Plus RV - they will tow you up to 100 miles. We recently had to use them and went great. He had to take the rear 2 wheels off our 5th wheel and tow it nose low. Chained up the rear axel, etc. Did a great job, really nice guy. It did take him a while to get to us but we were quite a distance from the town he was coming from. We were actually lucky to even have cell service where we broke down in the ID mountains. Anyway, I've been happy with AAA.

I've had Coach-Net since 2010. I've used them twice to tow the truck/rv combo and once to tow the truck only. In addition, they've come out to replace a blown tire, or one that was about to, 3 times. All it has cost me was my annual premium and the cost necessary to replace the damaged tires. Each time the service guys were quite capable and did things properly. I just don't have anything but good things to say about the service I've received from them; it's been well worth the cost of the premiums. Hope this helps.

My research show comments of folks that have recently had bad results with Coach-Net being responsive or not paying the claim. Who knows......could just be their unusual situation. Apparently the company sold a few years ago, and not operating in the same manner.

It's just that I don't get any better overall opinions for the other companies out there.

we've had Good Sam ERS since 1986, used them several times with no complaints although the last use i can recall was several years ago.

seems they all might have some problems. I,d bet the problem starts with person on the other end of the phone, they don,t care, don,t really KNOW HOW to help you,after all yesterday they were top burger flipper at burger king.

I also went with AAA premium service which covers my RV. I only used them once for a flat tire. The tech had to drive about 100 miles in both directions. I have used AAA for years with our cars. We never had a charge or an issue with coverage except for the time needed to send out a tow truck. Typically that has been less than half an hour which seems forever while you are waiting by the side of the road.

AAA will also respond if you are a passenger in another person's car that has an issue.
