I've had Good Sam for about 5 years, and have called them only once......I got the problem fixed before they called me back, which was about 4 hours...they were looking for someone to change a tire for me. Anyway.......I wasn't very sold on the service. Sooooooo, I joined Faminly Motor Coach which I believe you have to belong to in order to get Coach Net emerency road side service. So....here's my question........which do you like? and why? What makes one better then the other? What's the difference in price? Thanks

I am also an FMCA member and have Coach-Net. You can have Coach-Net without being FMCA but I like FMCA for the extra benefits. My experience with GS was very poor when I called on Christmas Day. The recording said to call back the next day if I still needed assistance and call the local police if I was in danger. I have had Coach-Net since and have great service when I needed it.

I have CoachNet, had to use them a month ago when I got stuck with the 5er attached backing in a new driveway on my property in northern lower Mi. I told them that the area was off a private drive about 400 feet into my property , explaining I was not off the road 4 wheeling etc. They contacted a wrecker who called me back within 10 minutes and asked if a rollback would work, I responded all I needed was a winch and the flatbed(rollback) was on scene and me out in 45 minutes. This one use paid for my membership, Wouldnt be without them now!! Bill

I've used GS many times for tows and lock out. They have been very nice and quick to call me back with info. Sometimes it takes help sometime to arrive but that is the wrecker company not GS.

I tried to renew my Good Sam on a Friday afternoon before a last-minute holiday weekend trip. They said if wouldn't be effective until Tuesday when they could verify the credit card.

I called Coachnet, and everything was great. Been with them since. Never used them, but their good service clinched the deal.

I have Coach-net. I researched both before I joined and it seemed that folks were more satisfied with the service (in general) than they were with GS. I think Coach-net vets out the service people better from what I understand. I think they also have better towing benefits.

I used CoachNet once and the service was excellent. I had dead chassis batteries at a storage facility. The service truck was there within a couple of minutes after I got off the phone. In the mean time, CoachNet had already scheduled me to get the batteries tested and replaced. All I had to do was show up.

We have GS and have called them only twice over the years, they came VERY quickly both times - once we had a transmission problem with one of Lexus', they arrived quickly and towed it to Lexus - once my brother in law sank the motorhome to the axles cutting too sharp in to our yard - my wife said they sent a MASSIVE tow truck to pull it out - the tow truck driver was extremely careful not to break the fiberglass and seemed to know exactly what he was doing

Both times, they were more than satisfactory - However I wouldn't hesitate to use COACH NET either though, based on feedback by their members

I have Coach-Net ERS. I previously have had GS ERS, but their switch to Road America as their ERS contractor last year convinced me to switch, along with the higher regard many RV'ers have for Coach-Net. The pricing for both is similar, but I believe Coach-Net has the edge in overall benefits.
