Coach net or Good Sams would be my choice, AAA does not seem to do well with Rv 's Coach Net has a good rep, having said that We have Good Sams, and never have used it, But other friends of ours say they had a good turn around. I also think some of the response time depends on the area of the country you are in. I would look over both plans, and see which one fits your needs

We have Coach Net as it was thrown in as part of the deal on our coach. But we have AAA for our car and we have used it previously (for a car, not RV). Have not needed to use Coach Net, so I cannot comment on that service.

Don't know how good AAA is for RVs, but I would expect the same level of service as for autos. We'll have to make the same decision you are making in a year from now when our Coach Net coverage expires.

We have good Sam ERS but have never needed it. I have heard AAA has service area gaps. I would not only compare plan coverage and price but make sure the areas you are driving through are completely covered.

so far coach-net is in the lead for me. im also reading a plethora of other forums to see what they mention. is fmca worth signing up for? the discount on coachnet is negligible but a tiny perk.

We have been with Coach Net for a few years and have used them a few times on the 40' Bus and our cars. Their service is usually fast if you are in a busy area but not so fast in the boonies but I don't think any one would be any better. We have no reason to change.

I have been looking also.
AAA is out for us. After checking with them I have found out they don't have complete/blanket coverage across the U.S.
Also have heard they don't do real well with RVs and their responce time has been known to be lacking.

Thank you everyone. We are likely going with coachnet alone or both gs and cn at the same time. Likely just cn.

Both simultaneously seems like overkill.
