What services would you keep?

So it's been about a year now since we bought our trailer and all the extra subscriptions we got are up for renewal. Everything from Good Sam roadside assistance to a subscription to Trailer Life. What have you found useful and worth paying to get? FWIW I have basic roadside assistance through my car insurance but nothing special beyond that.

I enjoy reading through the Trailer Life magazine. Dropped the GS, the trailer, including roadside assistance, is covered by the same company as my auto

I renewed my Trailer Life Subscription - Dropped everything else. I received a 3 year Elite membership which I still have time on that gives me discounts at the store and some campsites. Roadside assistance I have through my insurance policy.

Thanks for the replies, I appreciate it. I guess I will take a hard look at my car insurance roadside assistance and make sure it has enough coverage for the trailer before I drop the good sam option.

Most auto roadside doesn't cover RV's unless specifically mentioned. I would check before cancelling.

I have coach-net and absolutely love it. I was a AAA member for 34 years and decided to go with coach-net. Used them once already for a flat tire on my tv. COULD NOT BE HAPPIER.

I might keep the magazines, but would drop the rest.

I have roadside assistance with my auto insurance Co which includes towing up to 100 miles to where ever I want to go. I have never needed it. My parents have the same coverage. They had to be towed about 70 miles home. Their Suburban was on the flatbed, and the tt, was in tow. The tow company dropped the TT off in the driveway, where it normally gets parked, and then brought the suburban to the shop. They had to pay the fee upfront to the tow driver, then submitted the bill to insurance and was paid promptly.

I am happy with that option.

As for changing tires, my insurance would cover that too, but I would just change it, as it will be much quicker. If I had a big tired MH, I would seriously look at roadside coverage really closely, as most MH's do not have a spare tire.
