The big names you'll read are Good Sams, CoachNET, and AAA.

You'll read great stories for each. And you'll read war stories for each. I feel like I've read more war stories than good ones about AAA and excluded them from my consideration.

Each uses the same basic set of service providers and you're at the mercy for whoever gets dispatched. Some will be great, some will be terrible and really it's luck of the draw as to who shows up.

I had a good experience with Good Sam (they found me a mobile auto tech to replace broken leaf springs on my fifth wheel in a Walmart parking lot on a Sunday). But, I have friends who have been stranded by Good Sam and promptly cancelled their service.

Good luck!

We have Coachnet - look carefully if you sign up. The more expensive plan is for a motorized rv - the cheaper on for a towable. Don't mistakenly purchase the wrong plan.

I haven't heard many horror stories about CoachNet. Supposedly, they all use the same providers.

Join FMCA. Roadside assistance especially for class A's, $74 a year. You'll also get travel assist which will fly you and the DW home in case of a medical emergency and pay for a driver to bring your Class A home.
The best value for the money out there.

We had CoachNet and now are switching to FMCA, basically for the medical emergency plan as the DW & I both have medical issues and, well you never know. That's what insurance is for.

I believe FMCA also has an $85 annual membership fee. It's a little cheaper if you pay for three years upfront.

In major population areas there may be several service firms to choose from. But many only have a single firm capable of transporting a motorhome so you gotta believe ALL the RSS companies use them.

I have RSS through Ford for another two years and then it will be through my insurance company.
