Coach-Net, AAA, Good Sam? Roadside Assist
 
My two-year complimentary membership with Coach-Net is coming to a close. Have not used so do not know if it is worth the $109-179.00 annually, depending on plan. What’s your experience? Good Sam? AAA? Others?

Thanks!
Dave

Well, none of them own a single tow truck. They are simply call centers selling a very similar product which is more or less insurance. I have Good Sam and have used them ten years or so, out of inertia - used them twice in that time and they dispatched prompt assistance but, considering my annual dues, each incident actually cost about $400.

You pays your money and you takes your chances...

AirstreamCSH 05-02-2018 10:14 PM

I dropped the Good Sam and this is my last year on my 27 yr AAA. When you finally need them, you find out you do better to call the major tow company in the area. Sad really. They are just really bad dispatch companies.

We have had Coach Net since our warranty period on our 04 Safari 25. The service was not needed until about 5 years ago. Our Ford TV had an injector fail. Coach Net got us a tow in less than an hour. When the driver arrived he said that 'these Fords are easy to fix, I'll get you to MY shop and have you on the way...bla, bla, bla.' I said we want to go to a Ford dealer. The conversation was not going well. I called Coach Net back and explained the situation. They called the driver, owner, or whoever and the Ford Dealer was suddenly the new destination. Coach Net took care of the issue.

Just a few weeks later, same trip, we blew the left rear tire on the TV. We were just past a major Interstate intersection. With the on-coming traffic there was no safe way to open the left door let alone change a tire. Called Coach Net again. Coach Net dispatched a tow/repair truck and called the State Police to manage the on-coming traffic while the tire was replaced. This was quite an adventurous trip!

Our new A/S is still under warranty and again Coach Net is the provider.

On return from our 1st trip with the new A/S the brakes locked up as I was backing into my driveway. The brake failure is for a different topic. Anyway, I called Coach Net and explained we would need a 'roll-back' because of the brake issue. This time the Coach Net rep said they will not tow or move the trailer and instead would hire a 'local' repair service to fix the brakes or tie up the axle to make it towable.

Coach Net refused to send a tow vehicle capable of loading the 26' A/S. Their explanation/excuse was; we get a lot of stories about warranty failure from RV people that have run into something or jammed a slide out by their own fault and that is not a warranty issue. We cannot take a chance that your problem is warranty. It may be your fault and this is our solution. We (Coach Net) have no other obligation with A/S for warranty (paraphrased).

We are not planning to renew with Coach Net.

BTW: Airstream warranty service and Dexter were great in helping us get the brakes repaired in my driveway.

This last episode with Coach Net was very disconcerting. Coach Net had NO concern or respect for my needs, only their minimum responsibility to the contract with Thor. Again, the main point Coach Net made was the failure was probably my fault and not a warranty issue.

Coach Net will not be on the top of my list in the future. Just my humble opinion.

We have had AAA since 2002, and have had consistently good service when that has been needed.

I have used it twice in the past month or so.

The only time we ever could not get service was right after an ice storm in Missouri.

AAA also provides discounts many places...campgrounds, entrance fees, tickets, etc.

All of these companies are only as good as the driver who shows up.

I will say this for AAA: my neighbor needed a battery replaced in a Porsche. It takes an enormous battery and is located in an awkward knuckle-busting place. AAA sent a competent guy out with the right battery and he did the work. His price for battery+labor was less than the price of the battery at a local car parts store and DIY.

KWN306 05-03-2018 09:33 AM

We have Good Sam and like others have said they are only as good as the drivers / repairman that shows up. I find the service useful as thay can norrow down a tow / repair facility very quickly rather than me firguring it out. I'm getting too old to change a flat tire.

accordionman 05-03-2018 09:33 AM

AAA, Coach net, Good Sam, etc.
 
We have a company called "Safe Ride" which is affiliated with Overland Insurance out in AZ. First year RVers. When we insured our coach with them they offered the service which is no different than any others. It's coming up for renewal and I'm on the fence as to whether or not I'm going to renew. I have had 2 experiences with them.
First: While parked at home, I was having a problem with my water pump and called them for some names of mobile mechanics. They said it would take a day to get the names (?), but they did call me back the next day with 3 names. I'm glad I wasn't stranded on the side of the road.

Second: I was removing a wheel and tire while my coach was parked in storage and encountered some issues removing it. Getting frustrated, I called them. I got jerked around for about an hour on the phone with them telling me they had no idea why I was calling them and another number of weird responses. I gave up...finished removing the tire myself and brought it to a tire shop myself.
Again, thank God I wasn't on the side of the road. The next day, I called the insurance agency who sold me the service contract and complained and was told that they had no record of my call (?).

Not exactly a sterling record. After the second incident, I fully equipped myself with the tools necessary to change a tire myself as conveniently as possible, in the case of a problem.

I had originally stayed away from AAA as they don't service the NE with RV service, but since I originally came from there and now live in FL, I have no intentions of going up there for anything, so I might try AAA.

In any case, I don't think I would renew with Safe Ride. From what I have read in the last yr about these services, they all seem to run from great to absolute torturous treatment. I'm not sure there is any happy medium. I think it is just the luck of the draw.

Just my .02

RJJ 05-03-2018 09:34 AM

AAA for sure... for me.
 
I've had AAA for many years.

When I got my 20 footer last year, I upgraded to Premier + RV. When the trailer needed towing, AAA made it possible. First a regular tow truck, but the guy stated I needed a Landoll for the job. The tow was 206 miles and was covered. AAA also covered lodging and meals for 3 days afterward. I've had flats fixed, battery jump starts over the many years of membership.

I have only 1 complaint: (In FL) because someone sued AAA for a tire coming out of its storage area and causing damage, the AAA svc tech would not put my tire in its correct storage place. I had to carry it around in the cargo area of my SUV. But, at least the AAA tech put the dirty tire in a giant plastic bag.

I just received my complementary Coachnet membership. I'll carry them both. When the Coachnet ends, I'll still carry AAA.

rperrym 05-03-2018 09:34 AM

We used AAA RV+ last Sunday. Our truck shut down on Interstate 30 in Little Rock and we were only able to coast to the South University exit. Of course we had the Airstream in tow. In 20 minutes a wrecker showed up and loaded my truck up and towed the Airstream with the truck on his bed to Everett GMC.
I will agree that in a more rural area and with different wrecker companies, this may have turned out differently. We also have Coach-Net.

Allstate since the 80s and they cover anything I drive, I just fired good sams as my ins carrier partly due to the CONSTANT JUNK MAIL!

Magnet18 05-03-2018 09:47 AM

We've got AAA premier+rv, just for some peace of mind.

It's like insurance. You hope you never need it, but when you need it, you need it

Previous owners had a couple good sam horror stories, and a AAA story that went much smoother

Rgentum 05-03-2018 09:59 AM

Two summers ago, we left Seattle in our Ram/Cummins 2500 & AS 27 to attend the National AS Rally in WVA. We took I-90. At the summit of Lookout Pass, on the border between ID and MT and miles from nowhere, the Ram sprung an oil leak. I stopped and called AAA. It took several hours for the tow truck to arrive. He drove the Ram onto the bed of the truck and towed the AS. He asked where did I want to go? I said the closest RAM dealer. He said that was in Post Falls, ID, on the ID/OR border (on the opposite side of the state). It took us approx 1.5 hours to get there, approx. 70 miles away. He unhooked the trailer and backed the Ram off the truck. He called AAA for me. I asked, "How much?" AAA replied, "No charge --- you have AAA/Premiere Plus RV."

In Washington that subscription costs me annually $169 plus $37 for a second driver. I shudder to think what that tow would have cost me without it. Both the trucker and the AAA personnel could not have been nicer, more helpful, more pleasant, etc.

AAA Service
 
I've had AAA forever on the cars and for 12 years on the 28' Safari.

Two usages: Burnt out a wheel bearing. Only way to transit the 80 miles
to a shop that could handle the replacement was via a flat-bed. It was
dispatched and cost me nothing. i can't imagine what the out of pocket
would have been on that one. Had a flat at 7:00PM in Louisianna. No local
responsed. AAA found a guy about 75 miles away that came over an fixed it at 10:00 at night in a thunderstorm. I've had a fair amount of other instances
with the cars and always good results. For the price I'm sticking with AAA

I have Good Sam and have had to use them one time. They provided excellent service, and I was in a remote area in eastern Canada. They are just a dispatch center, yes, but they do that One Job very well. The guy they sent to fix my rig had to travel a 50-mile round trip into an undeveloped area, then navigate down a private logging road to find me. That took perseverance, LOL.

Fred L 05-03-2018 12:37 PM

Carrying Triple AAA and Good Sam for now, only because I have had AAA for 20 years.
Will be dropping GS though. Simple reason is that I get good discounts on hotels during business travel with AAA that more than pays for itself.
I did have an issue with the trailer within the first few hours of owning it where I met a fellow who towed it to a half way meeting point. After I did some work in installing the WDH and putting on 4 new wheels/tires, I could not get the electrical 7 pin connection to work. Thinking it may have been a fuse, but wasn't. I ended up pulling into a Flying J who said they only worked on trucks, so called GS (Saturday afternoon around 4:00) and he said they would send somone. When I asked how long, he said most likely 5-6 hours. I was in Va along Rt 81, not far from Christiansburg or Roanoke, so not out in the middle of nowhere. Declined the service. Will be staying with AAA going forward. There is also an interesting you tube video done by the folks who call their business long honeymoon about a time they called GS in northern Ca and were told by GS that no one could help them for at least 24 hours. That doesn't work well for me.

jwc363 05-03-2018 03:09 PM

This may help
 
Several years ago My dodge truck broke down on I-5 in rural northern California. I was hauling a 27 foot non-airstream trailer. AAA sent a gentleman with a flatbed truck that could haul the truck and hooked the trailer up to his hitch and hauled me and my truck and trailer to a motel. He was a mechanic and after diagnosing the problem as a fuel pump he came back the next morning and installed a new one. AAA premium paid for the tow for the truck and trailer.

Mrjkq 05-03-2018 03:57 PM

FMCA (family motor coach association) has opened its membership ranks to all towable RV's that are self contained, the annual membership fee is $50 and the benefits are 2nd to none. They offer a roadside assistance program for $69 annually that covers all your vehicles including motorcycles. This roadside program is better than or equal to all the others & less expensive. Micheline tire program & insurance is just a couple more benefits available along with a monthly magazine. Well worth the money. I recently replaced my Truck tires with Michelin Defender LT tires using the FMCA Michelin Advantage program & saved a bundle. The program applies to all type Michelin tires so Airstream owners that are in the market can also save big bucks.

Jan Tillman 05-03-2018 04:38 PM

We have AAA gold with a rider for the Tin Tipi ,we had a breakdown in Ky .called for a tow truck waited 5 hrs in 95 degree heat a good Samaritan stopped took my husband to a part fixed and then came back and did the work. AAA got mad when we canceled the call.
I might add I am disabled and in all that time not one cop stopped

Need insurance for my 1998 AS
 
:bb:Hello newby to AS forum. I have been checking on insurance but finding most want to quote from NADA or only will insure newer models. Any suggestions would be great? Will be taking her out soon for first run.

Smartstream 05-03-2018 05:03 PM

I have been with AAA since I was a kid. After so many years the premier package is free. :) A few years back we had a problem in New York. After a few calls we discovered AAA New York does not cover RVs. After a call to AAA Washington we were told to hire whoever we needed and we would be reimbursed. The tow cost us $1100, inconvenient but we received a check in about a week with no questions ask. With all the discounts, free maps, yes we still carry and use paper maps, I am happy with AAA.

Ted S. 05-03-2018 06:56 PM

I don't think you will ever find a perfect roadside service. I think a lot of has to do with where you break down and what services are offered in that area.

When you break down, you get service from a local provider, not from AAA, Good Sam or Coachnet themselves. So I think you will always run the gamut. But I am not an expert.

Having said that, I had one experience with Coachnet. I upgraded to the premier level because that covers the tow vehicle as well. The promo level you get with your trailer does not, or at least in my case.

I pay $150 a year, pretty happy with it. They were on it when I needed them. I had AAA pre-camper days, Broke down one day took hours to get a hook. The issue was the local shops were all busy. Just the way it goes. Don't think any service is better than the other in that situation.

davidrrand 05-03-2018 08:49 PM

Thanks everyone for the replies. Long time
AAA member so will probably add there RV premier service.

Good Ole Sam on a bender
 
I had a flat while on the interstate in Texas. I called good ole Sam, told him the
mile marker and he asked "What do you see nearby?" Answer was "Trees".
Good ole Sam finally said that he could not find me, and I was on my own.
Goodbye to brain dead Sam.
It's funny, but AAA has always been able to find me. Wonder why good ole Sam
couldn't find me on an interstate with a mile marker?

urnmor 05-04-2018 05:26 AM

We have had Good Sam fo almost six years and used them twice. Once at home in my drive way and once on the road when we had a blowout. In both cases their response and service was excellent. I will renew with them.
However whether or not who you go with I personally think (maybe it is an age thing) the insurance is well worth the piece of mind. It is one of those things that you don't know when you will need it but if you don't have it when you need it it is to late to get it.

57Wanderer 05-05-2018 07:44 AM

We used our AAA +RV yesterday when the TPMS alerted us to a tire that was very very low. We called the dispatcher and the central office found a local tire shop with a mobile unit that came out within 90 minutes to change the tire out to the spare and investigate the problem (the injured tire had a big nail in it.)

They came to the campground, from Charleston, SC. About a 30 minute ride for the driver. Excellent service.

Prior to that, we have used the RV service when we were locked out of the trailer and the central dispatch located a locksmith to come to our campground and open the door for us. Excellent service again. Another 60 minute wait. Again, the tech had to drive about 30 minutes (Desert Hot Springs, Ca) to find us.

Towing, tires, locksmith. What more do you need? I am a long time customer of AAA, and have always had great experiences with them. Prior to this, our coverage was on our cars and work trucks, in the middle of a very big city, with services all around. So when it came time to look for coverage while full time RVing, I looked around and no one else had the service for the price of AAA.

switz 05-06-2018 07:29 AM

Good Sam lost the legal rights to insure our trailer because they were cancelled as an agent. Switched to FICS agency and now have Progressive insurance on both trailers. Have stated value on Classic with many modifications.

Have had AAA coverage since 1962 and has worked for us. Also have CoachNet as one or the other can get the job done. Let Good Sam road side lapse as got tired of all of the junk mail.

Have lifetime membership in GoodSam which lets me get discounts at some RV parks along with AAA, military and AARP.

Lhenry83 07-15-2019 08:36 PM

What is the BEST roadside assistance if you want to tow your AS to an authorized AS dealer?
I’ve got USAA, Coach-Net that came with my 2019 Globetrotter and AAA “Classic” - no RV coverage. USAA will tow my trailer to the closest “Service Center”, AAA “Premier” + RV will tow 100 miles. I plan to call Coach-Net tomorrow to see what is the distance they will tow. We just returned from a trip to Pagosa Springs, CO. The closest “authorized” dealership was 158 miles away in New Mexico. I do NOT want some “random” RV repair shop working on my 2019 AS - especially when it’s under warranty.
What am I missing? What happens to the AS travelers who have a breakdown in Alaska, etc. How would Coach-Net / AAA handle that scenario? Is the towing cost out of my pocket - that is a scary thought. Thanks, 16242-TX

davidrrand 07-16-2019 11:03 AM

Beware of AAA Premier RV
 
I am the original poster from May of 2018. I went ahead and upgraded my membership to AAA Premier RV in November. I have been a member of AAA for 37 years. It cost me $222.00 for one year. In February of this year, I was returning from a trip to Florida and within 20 miles west from Jacksonville, FL we had a flat tire on my 2015 F150. Called AAA and told since I was a Premier member, this call would be a “priority”. I thought, well this is good since I am on the side of I-95 towing my Airstream on a Sunday morning with heavy car and semi traffic. About 15 minutes later, we received a call and they said they were unable to get any service providers to accept the service call and would have to go to “outside channels”. They said it could be 3-4 hours and would get back to me. After another 5 minutes of trucks whizzing by, I decided this was too, dangerous to sit there for four hours, so despite a bad back and neck, I changed the tire on the truck, still hooked up to Airstream. It took almost an hour with my wife trying to flag trucks into the other lane without much success. It was drizzling around noon when this all began. After changing the tire I realized it was shot with a hole the size of my finger apparently from a bolt or something. About a mile on our way was a Walmart at the next exit. Unfortunately, they did not stock Goodyear Wrangler 18” tires. Another 20 miles west and we were in Lake City, another Walmart and same story. By this time, it was around 3:30 PM and still no call from AAA. We called them and cancelled the service call and voiced my displeasure with their lack of response.

Fortunately, there was a Ford dealer in Lake City, closed so we spent the night in the parking lot of a Holiday Inn Express with the manager’s permission. Next morning, at the dealer early and they would have to order the tire but would have it by early afternoon. Left the dealer late pm with a full set of new tires as the original tires with 38K were all in need of replacing. I told my story to the Ford service writer and he asked why I did not call Ford? Says they will tow your car/truck to the nearest Ford dealer, anywhere on vehicles with vehicles less than 60,000 miles or 5 years. If you are towing a trailer, they will tow that, too, for up to $200.00 in tow charges for the trailer. By the way, the Ford dealer offered better pricing by about $75.00 than the Discount Tire across the street on the same tire.

Once home, I called AAA and gave my story to a “supervisor”. He was sorry but says the only thing he could offer me was a $35.00 reduction on next years’ renewal! I told him this was unacceptable and that if they did not want me to cancel my membership after 37 years, he had better get someone up the chain to contact me with something better. I never got a call back.

In the meantime, health issues have kept me from enjoying our Airstream, but should be able to go to the Rockies in August and decided to keep the AAA which expires in November. Going forward from there will go with Ford as I have another 20K on my truck before the road assistance expires and may just upgrade to a 250 in 2020.
As n2916s said in post #2, “You pays your money and you take your chances…..” CANNOT RECOMMEND AAA, BUT YMMV.

Just posted Sunday, the Airstream couple, LoLoHo posted their thought on roadside assistance programs they've used.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knZy4ouICCQ

They basically say if you need anything other than a tire changed, you're on your own.

Robkhoo 07-21-2019 03:10 PM

I have a 7 month old Airstream Interstate 19 2019 model. CoachNet is included for the first few years. I have encountered a dozen issues and I have made many calls to CoachNet. I find the service basic and not very helpful at all when I was traveling out away from home. Sometimes the tech didn’t know what model I had, didn’t know what to advise me.

If I had to pay for such substandard service, I wouldn’t.

oldenavy 07-21-2019 04:54 PM

Has good Sam when we full-timed. The one time we needed it, we were stuck at Kirkland AFB with a broken autolevel system (couldn’t hitch up). DW spent hours on the phone trying to get them to send a tech to fix our 5th wheel. Ended up diagnosing it myself, got the part through Amazon and dumped GS. As infrequently as this type of problem comes up, we figure we’ll just pay when we need something.

uncle_bob 07-21-2019 05:17 PM

Hi

I've had one experience with Coach Net. I caught a blown brake early and was able to get off the road to someplace safe. Since we were safe, as far as they were concerned ... no need for them to do anything like fix the brakes so we could continue down the road. Also no need to get us anywhere that the brakes could be repaired .....

It may come as a big surprise but, we did not go with them after the free trial ran out ....

We'll give AAA a try and see how it goes. Hopefully we will not need to be towed over 200 miles. Big plus - coverage for trailer, tow vehicle (with or without trailer attached) and the car ....

Bob

uncle_bob 07-22-2019 07:05 AM

Hi

One other layer to this: Medical. If you are incapacitated while out and about, what happens? Can the "rest of the crew" get the RV home on their own? How do you get transported home?

Some plans appear to include this. There are also outfits that will sell you a plan independent of the normal tow stuff.

If you got AAA, they have a discount on Emergency Assistance Plus that will do as you describe, including getting your pet home.

uncle_bob 07-23-2019 07:11 AM

Hi

There also are straight up "travel" medical insurance plans that will cover this and that. The gotcha is in the gap between the RV stuff and the medical stuff. The evac plans I've had in the past were targeted at somebody who flew in and expected to fly out. That's not *quite* what you have with 10,000 pounds of aluminum luggage on the trip :)

Now, you also *could* ask - why do I need to go home? Unless you are heading out of the country, there is pretty good care available for the routine stuff where you are. Your medical insurance covers you out of area doesn't it? ( = this is a real good thing to check *now* ).

Driving with your leg in a cast from hip to toe .... hmmm .... not so easy. Been there, but never tried to drive with the cast on :) Even getting in and out of a vehicle with that cast was a challenge.

Dave,
I too have The complimentary Coach-Net 3 year that I got with my 2019 Globetrotter. I also have the “basic” RV with USAA who also has my comp and collision on the AS. After talking with both organizations- USAA and Coach-Net I plan to renew my Coach-Net for the Basic program $99 and the Basic roadside with USAA for the main reason that Coach-Net will TOW my AS to the closest authorized AS dealer. USAA will only tow my AS to the closest RV service center which I see that as a problem, especially if my AS is still under warranty. Now, Coach-Net roadside service only covers mechanical breakdowns. It’s a different story if your trailer is involved in an accident - the other reason I kept my USAA $8 / 6-month policy.

Hi

Be a little careful about what Coach Net considers an "Airstream Dealer". Last time we did anything with them, they seemed to have a very interesting definition of the term. ( = places that had been dealers 20 years ago ....).

If you are 800 miles from the nearest dealer, I can understand that towing / transporting that far has significant issues. When Jackson Center is 120 miles down the road ... ummm .... errrr .... what ????

Hi

That *is* the flip side to this. If you are out and about for 30 years spending $150 a year on a "plan" that's $4,500 (without interest) you could have in a big pie of $20's in the trunk. You can cover a tire change or a tow with that sort of cash.

Bob

Mollysdad 07-25-2019 08:31 AM

Since all the providers get about the same reviews, I'm guessing they make a deal with a tow company to accept a flat rate for service. Less than you'd pay calling the same service, but they can throw a lot of business their way.
Kind of like Medicare for RV's.
So if a tow truck doesn't feel like accepting that rate, they just leave you sit.

My Coach Net expires in September and I really don't know what to do. I'll check with my auto insurance first for a rider.

uncle_bob 07-25-2019 09:25 AM

Hi

To me, the main "risk" with the insurance policy rider is that the "other option" may have a bigger set of contacts. There's no way to know so that's only a random guess. They may all just get on the internet and start looking up tow outfits when you call ..... who knows ... That was certainly the impression Coach Net gave me.
