Odd that there is just one topic here…

I have AAA for RVs but it does not cover what I really need. Does Good Sam offer roadside assistance insurance that is similar?

My AAA mainly is to cover towing when out of town, but I have a truck camper and tow a cargo trailer. Technically aaa does not cover the trailer being towed, but just the "heavy" truck/camper which needs a big tow truck/more expensive.

I need a plan to cover my entire rig.

I just got towed but had to get a friend to come to the next state to tow my trailer out. It took a full day for aaa to get the right tow truck to me, they sent two small ones despite being told I was 10,000 lbs. Im not interested to repeat this.

I think Good Sam Roadside Platinum covers your situation but one of their moderators will be able to give you the exact 411.

AAA Roadside Service is totally inadequate for RVers. AAA was not designed for RVers and AAA does not have complete coverage in all cities!!!! Such a deal[emoticon]

aaa is different in each zone, but there is the option to request reimbursement from your home location that does cover it. I am not sure how often they do or do not cover this. Otherwise it is plenty adequate for towing as sending a tow truck is all the typical RVer would ask for, but in my case I want to cover a trailer too.

So, what coverage do you people have, what do you pay and what does it offer/cover?
I could call and go through a long phone conversation, but realistically that is not going to happen anytime soon. My aaa coverage is paid through the year and I likely will not be doing as much RVing the rest of the year anyway.

Make sure you read the reviews about peoples experience with GS Roadside lack of assistance...........

At the top of forum is a drop down box that you can adjust what messages you see. Up to 12 months in advance it defaults to last 14 days.. ...so you wont see much at this time of the year but if you go back the last 12 you will see plenty of horror stories........

They are good about following up AFTER the fact though.... When you and the family are all safe after being left to your on devices to find help
