Default Roadside Assistance

Is it wise to buy roadside assistance service for towing and tire changes, etc.? Could someone please suggest the best company to sign up with? Does AAA cover travel trailers?
Thanks for any input.

Been doing some more research. Something commonly said for Good Sam's or Coach Net is that they know about campers where as AAA normally only deals with cars and the people on the phone are of little help. Plus, they're cheaper.
I have AAA on my car already so that's a plus. Would still appreciate more input, particularly from people who have needed roadside help and how well they were treated by their provider.
Thanks

Default Refer: Road side assistance

We have had Good Sam RV Emergency Road Service for over 15 years and am quite satisfied with them they take care of Lock out's and tire and will tow not only the Tow vehicle but also the trailer to a repair shop. Hope this help you some.

Very helpful, thanks. I'd about decided on them and just needed some conformation. I think AAA has a towing mileage limit and, as I said, someone commented that AAA phone contact doesn't know the difference between an RV and a bicycle. Just one opinion, of course.

We signed up with AAA, as we already had them with our cars. I didn't research it, so would like to hear from others who have fouund the best and worst ones!

I decided on Good Sam. My understanding is there is no towing mileage limit as with AAA and they will tow trailer and tow vehicle if necessary. Also, I get the idea that they are trailer specialists, not auto, and may be better at understanding particular issues. Saying all that, I hope I never need them!

Good Sam Club is a national rv organization. They offer many services to the rv'er that some companies do not handle. Many campgrounds across the country give a discount to members of Good Sam Club. They offer road side service for a yearly fee as another service. They enlist towing companies all across the country for this service - just like AAA. Good Sam is rv oriented, unlike some other roadside service companies. Their logo is a round red circle with a cartoonish man's head with a yellow halo in it.
