Airstream RV Roadside Assistance Insurance

My wife and I have a Flying Cloud 26U we purchased new in 2016. Since then and to the present time we have had complimentary Coach-Net roadside assistance thru Airstream. As our coverage will be ending soon, we want to continue this type coverage. We are considering renewing Coach-Net or going with AAA or Good Sam. We have AAA for our vehicles and house and Progressive insurance (non-roadside) on our Airstream thru AAA. We ask for and will appreciate any member help to make a good decision on this coverage. Thanks all for any help.

Quite probably because many of the usual suspects are over there elsewhere on the forums passionately arguing back and forth about hitches, tires and wheels, and big tow vehicles...sometimes it takes a while for them to notice a new post on a more useful subject.

The best bet is to take a walkabout search of the forums for 'roadside assistance' or 'insurance', and see what you get...

Personally, since I'm a rabid 'do-it-yourself' type, I only have my long-standing AAA membership to fall back on in case of a serious breakdown. Most stuff I can fix myself with duct tape, or in a pinch, baling wire. Since I drive a Toyota Tacoma and use Michelin tires, I rarely have the need for help with the tow vehicle...

These days about all of them are the same as they just contract out the towing services, and it is only as good as the towing company they call. If you go with AAA you will have to upgrade to RV to have your Airstream covered, they don't cover without the added RV fee. And RV and RV Premium are different.

The one thing to check with Coachnet, Sams, AAA etc, is the towing limits. The cheap plans say "to nearest service facility" you don't get a choice. The better plans give you 100 miles or some limit and then you can have it towed to the dealer, or even back home. To me this feature is worth it, as I don't want to be told where or who will be servicing my auto or Airstream.

For this reason we have stayed with Good Sam Platinum, but they quit selling that plan to new members 2 years ago. And the big difference is towing limits.

If you already have AAA and plan on keeping it, I'd assume that adding the RV is the easiest/best/cheapest way to go.

Airstream RV Roadside Assistance Insurance

I really donít think it matters. Wherever you are stuck your roadside assistance company is simply going to engage the local towing network to come get you. Itís not like they have their own equipment... they are simply a dispatch service.

We had Coach Net before switching to AAA Premier RV. It matters.
