Coach-Net costs???

So, after the introductory membership in Coach-Net that came with my new Jayco, I renewed to continue the roadside coverage last year. Just received my most recent renewal reminder, and they tell me it is now $99 per year ($25 off if I renew for 3 years).
BUT, I see on their web site that they are advertising the same coverage for $89, including a "one time" fee of $10. So wouldn't that make the yearly rate $79? No mention that this is a introductory promo, etc.
I of course have sent an email to them about this. Has anyone else encountered this pricing difference, and if so, did Coach-Net explain it to your satisfaction??

I guess there always is that other roadside company that sends out the tons of promotional mail all the time.....

I didn't renew after our free promo. I'd join good Sam or AAA first. Camping World just gave us a free 6month good Sam membership. I must have spent enough money with them overt the last year...

We have a free year of Coach-Net also. I'd like to know what they have to say.

First thing is opt out of all the junk mail.
Make sure the Coach net renewal covers all vehicles you own.

They called me today. Speedy response - not!
Looks like their web page for renewals is set to assume the higher priced "Gold" option, with no way to pick any other.
We were, and wanted to be, "Basic", so the only way to stay at that option is over the phone. They seem to be counting on many not noticing the "upgrade".

At least on the phone, the representative stated that the tow vehicle and the trailer were covered while hitched up, but we were on our own for the tow vehicle after unhitching. Which is fine, as the DW really wants to keep AAA for all the day-to-day driving, anyway. With Gold, all vehicles owned are covered all the time.

AAA for day to day driving and towing directly to your home within 100 miles (200 for the high end package), something else (Coachnet, GoodSam) for RVing farther away than that. AAA is the only one that will tow you where you want. The others will take you to their nearest authorized repair center. We have one out of state trip planned this year. I'll probably sign up with Coachnet or GoodSam just for this year and keep AAA.

BTW, I made an inquiry to Coachnet last week. It took them nearly a week to answer a simple question.

Two years ago I had Good Sam and switched to Coach-Net due to a low introductory price. This year, I noticed the same as you (price has gone way up on Goach-Net). Magically, I just got an email from Good Sam with a promotional price of $69.95. So, I'll be switching back to Good Sam. Through the years it seems that both companies get very good ratings on service so I don't think it matters who I go with. BTW, Good Sam says they cover the vehicles as well as the RV.
I also have AAA out of necessity because my truck insurance is though them.

Coach Net is the provider of choice for FMCA (all the big boys) and have a proven reputation. AAA couldn't even provide a tire change for an Class C in Indianapolis.

Try and get Coachnet to tow you home though if you're broke down and less than 100 miles from home. Ain't happening. Seems to me to have the best flexibility you need 2 clubs and call the one that has the best options for the circumstances.

Only with the $69 Limited plan. With the Basic $89 plan (which is cheaper than AAA RV PLUS ) and the PREMIERE plan there is unlimited towing.
