That is very useful news. I noticed that my renewal was significantly higher than usual, but I didn't know why. Guess I will be going with the FMCA roadside assistance program.

I have only had to use them twice over the many years I have been a member and both time the service was excellent. My only compliant is that they don’t give long time loyal customers like me the same rate break that they give new members. Once they got you o more price breaks.

Even the new Coach Net policy will only tow you to nearest facility that can handle the mh or 200 miles.
They did not come to my wife's call in April. Battery had a bad cell and would have exploded if driven further. They stopped to check out the bad smell and car refused to start, transmission would not come out of park and so on. She called them and half hour later they could not find anyone to tow them and no facility that could do them any good within the 200 mile limit. They could send someone from Atlanta I think but they would have to pay for part of the tow.
Fortunately they saw a Tire Shop down the hill a good bit away and walked to them. They drove to the car diagnosed the problem and replaced the battery.
FMCA Roadside Assistance is in our plans. We have Good Sams too but she forgot.
*Of course Atlanta was not 200 miles away but the Agent for Coach Net was probably somewhere in India and did no know that. They also did not know about the Tire Store and I'm sure many other Services nearby.

compare chart Good Sam

This chart is very elusive - you don't see the change until you select one of the plans.

I had a multiyear plan from GS. When they changed the coverage, I was automatically up graded to Platinum.

Had GS roadside assistance for probably 15 years, never had reason to call them, until 2016 blew a tire on I-10 just out of Mobile on the Eastern shore of Mobile bay,called GS immediately, was Saturday morning,after 3 hours in the Sams parking lot the road service guy changed 2 tires very quickly, did a good job,I signed his ticket and turns out GS dinged me for $400.00 over what the tire service charged them, 1400.00 plus for 2 off brand 18 wheeler steer tires.Whatcha gonna do? Hope you're watching GS, needless to say I did not renew.jg

Hello catldog - Thanks for the post. I am sorry to hear of your experience with your tires, and would like to investigate further.

Please send me a PM with your best phone # and membership # and I'll reach back to you.

Thanks in advance.
