I couldn't find anything about the RV plus coverage on the AAA site for NV, UT, Northern Cal; anyone know if it's just something they don't have?

They don't make it easy to find. Apparently, "Plus" coverage is only available if you have been a "Classical" member for one year. From the AAA home page, enter "membership" in the search box. Scroll down to the entry about pricing in Nevada.

We do have plus coverage which adds additional miles to the towing allowance. Our membership brochure also has a page of small print about the eligible vehicles. Of particular interest --
"Motor homes, cab-over campers, tent trailers, recreational trailers, .... are eligible for ERS, including towing up to $200 provided they can be serviced safely and legally with the equipment available. In some cases, you may be asked to obtain service from a commercial tow company and apply for reimbursement."
Our document is marked "Rev. Oct 2002". Info on the AAA website appears to agree with our brochure. Unfortunately, we just renewed for one year. Wish I had read this thread last month.

Hm. We already have "Plus" coverage -- have for quite a while -- I just don't see anything special about RVs on it.

My expectation was that AAA would provide us with one tire change or tow per year, regardless of vehicle. I don't think there's a HUGE difference between changing a tire on an Airstream and changing one on a car (so long as the proper jack point is used). And AAA advertises that the coverage follows the member, not the vehicle.

The AAA representative on the phone stated that in the Northern California region, you are covered -- no extra RV payment is necessary. So apparently it varies from region to region.
You picked up an important fact which was why I did not add RV Plus to my AAA coverage. There are places where coverage does differ, according to the RV Plus fine print. I added the road service coverage to my Progressive RV insurance policy. $40 a year and it covers both the tow vehicle and trailer with nationwide service.

California Update...

I did some more research on CSAA club for northern California, and learned several interesting things about regular and "Plus" memberships...

1. Emergency Road Service (ERS) IS available for standard membership, for eligible vehicles including motor homes, recreational trailers, and trailers transporting a boat or jet skis... "provided they can be serviced safely and legally with the equipment available.." I believe this is high quality legal "weasel wording" to enable them to not tow you if it is difficult... They do make clear that you are entitled to FOUR ERS events in a year, and after that you must pay for any assistance.

2. The "Plus" membership is an additional $49 or so, and entitles you only to additional miles of free towing (100 mi v 5 mi standard, subject to limits above) plus free gas, and free medical evacuation (up to $25K!) and vehicle return...

Rep did confirm that different AAA regional clubs could and probably would have different terms for their "Plus" memberships...

Thanks for sharing the information about the plastic ramp. I donít recall ever having seen one. Can you tell us where you bought it? It sounds like a great piece of safety equipment
