Thanks for your assistance.

CoachNet has the best reputation, by far and can't imagine them, rejecting your location for service and for leaving you without.
Is there something in the fine print, about that?

Sounds too good for the right coverage.
Best price I've found for Plantium, was through Sharon Ball at PPL Motorhomes of Houston and is now over $100, but still, well worth it.
Thing is, you're insuring yourself and spouse for whatever you're driving and whether or not, it belongs to you or someone else.

The common limit for winching out among the ERS companies is 100' from a maintained road. A common tow truck cable length is 125', so the 100' max allows for hook up and truck positioning while keeping the truck in a safe location. I've done truck recoveries that required over 1000' of cable and/or chains to keep the tow truck on solid ground, but you can bet no ERS policy would ever cover them.

From the Coach-Net benefits listing:

In reference to an earlier post regarding being stuck for a police ordered towing bill by GS, Coach-Net says this about that situation:

"All Emergency Roadside Assistance services must be arranged by Coach-Net. There is no reimbursement for service
which you contract for yourself, unless a law enforcement agency takes control of the situation." (emphasis added)

Idk I've had it for years. Last year or so when I was reading on the forum how much they were charging I went on line to my account and renewed for six years for $446.
Back when I signed up they wanted all our names and sent us all cards. My older boy lives in VT. and he used it up there. I'm gonna call when I get some time and make shure what I have.

The last time I wanted to renew Coachnet wanted way too much money. I called and they told me that I was "grandfathered" and they could sell me a renewal for around $100 but it would only cover the coach.

Keep in mind, they all use the same service companies and that is usually where the problem lies.


Yes they do all use the same tow companies. You can also tack on a rider to your vehicle insurance and roadside will cost about $15 or so.

I have used Coachnet for my 36'Diesel for 14 years. Have used it many times for the RV and my cars. The only way to go.They understand big RVs and will send the right size tow truck if needed. Have used other services in the past and none as good in my opinion !!

Am I missing something here? I dropped Good Sam last year because their service has been reduced and went to Coach net----but I paid $249 for a year. Where is this $100 or is it for some cut rate plan?
