It may depend on where you live. In Florida, we have AAA South. In fact, we have our homeowners, main auto, classic auto and RV insurance through one policy with AAA. That type of policy may not be offered in other states. We also have AAA RV Premier, which covers towing on motorhomes. From the AAA South website:

AAA Premier RV extends present AAA Premier benefits to include motor homes, pickup trucks with campers, travel trailers, motorcycles and various pull-behind trailers (exclusions apply, see FAQ "Are there any exclusions for trailer coverage?" for details). Members must be a AAA Premier Member to be eligible to add AAA Premier RV coverage. AAA Premier RV extends emergency road services to recreational vehicles. All Premier benefits apply to RV including the 200-mile tow.
Q: Can you be more specific about the coverage for Premier RV?
AAA Premier RV covers AAA Members for one tow up to 200 miles of towing and up to 100 miles on any remaining service calls. It also covers changing of a flat tire with the mounted spare, a sufficient amount of fuel delivered to enable AAA Members to reach the nearest service station, reimbursement up to $150 in parts and labor for locksmith service, a second truck and operator for up to one hour to assist at the scene in complicated extrication cases. Premier RV Members receive increased Car Travel Interruption benefits up to $1,500, the one-day Hertz complimentary rental car (with breakdown) and all other Premier benefits including the 200-mile tow. Certain restrictions apply.

i just checked on my Coach-Net account. If I LOG IN using my current Membership Number it still shows the basic at $99 a year. I renew three years at a time. I have not had a break in service since I joined in 1999. Maybe that is why I can still select the Basic rate. I remember there was some concern a few years ago that they were not allowing new customers in California. So I renewed early and locked in three years of coverage. I plan to do the same before it expires again.

Update, good news:

Despite the lapse, they renewed me today at the $169 renewal rate instead of the new-member rate of $249, which is what they wanted to charge me the other day.

Not sure why the difference but I am not complaining. Glad I waited and called back though.

Aaa is not valid in every state. Has anyone asked if they supply a low boy or some other type of trailer? I would not want my unit towed by any other method. Other than your insurance there is only 2 choices. Good sam or Coach net.

We just renewed our Premier Plan ($169) for the year.
Two years ago, we had to have the bird lowboyed from the Oregon coast to I5 and Coburg, OR. It was a little over 100 miles, but the towing company had to go north about 20 miles before they could go east to I5. Where we were at the road was to narrow.
Got it there no problem.
Driver told me that the cost would have been in excess of $1,000 if we didn't have the Premier plan.
For us, it is (was) worth the yearly cost.

My last Blue Bird tow (2015) and tire service (2018) were both handled perfectly by my State Farm insurance.
