Thanks for all the responses on the Roadside Assistance. Another item to add to the purchase list.

I had to use the roadside assistance when returning to California from Indiana in Ocotber. Wheel bearing seized up on the 5er and had to be towed from the middle of nowhere Nebraska to a shop in York, NE. Tow was about 15 miles and the bill to Good Sam was over $1200.00, sure glad I had it. It was Friday night at about 11PM by the time I got to York it was after 1AM but they got me out of there to safety.

My wife and I have a lifetime Good Sam membership and the separate roadside assistance. In 13 years of RVing we have used it many times.

Mine came with a year of Coach Net. It did not cover any thing but the trailer.

There was a promotion last year where current Good Sam life members could purchase a life membership for a family member for a huge discount. My parents bought us a lifetime membership when we bought our camper.

Dropped Platinum Roadside

We had the GS Platinum Roadside Assistance plan (Lifetime GS members) - This covered ALL of our vehicles and the TT. I dropped it when my wife's pickup had a transmission go out. We wanted it towed to a national chain with national warranty that was 38 miles from where the farm is and they refused to tow it there as they found in their computer a private transmission company less then 10 miles away - has a terrible reputation and NO LOCALS WILL USE THAT SHOP! I complained to headquarters and they did nothing but offer to pay for 10 mile tow of the pickup. I had kept roadside assistance with our vehicle insurance and they paid over half the tow bill - MUCH MORE THEN GS OFFERED! When renewal came in it was trashed and all others have been and will continue. We have full insurance on the TT through same company and it also has roadside assistance - I trust my insurance company to help me and they will pay the max if I want it towed to a shop I trust - GS won't!!!

We are Good Sam life members and also have the roadside assistance. We also choose Good Sam for our extended warranty and have the Good Sam tire protection plan. It can get confusing. When someone says that they have Good Sam, it could include a bunch of plans that are offered by Good Sam that are totally unrelated.
