Default FMCA Roadside assistance

Anyone have any experience and/or feedback on the FMCA Roadside Assistance program. They say its covered by "Safe Ride RV Motor Coverage" but I have no experience with any of these types of companies other than AAA which I have used only for my regular vehicles.

Looks like its better than half the price of Coach Net, but since its through FMCA I didn't know if that's what helped get the price down. I don't want to get caught in a "get what you pay for situation". If its not comparable I would rather go with Coach Net.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Figured I'd bump this old thread. My Coach Net subscription is up for renewal. FMCA Roadside got my attention since it's less than half the price of Coach Net.

Any feedback on FMCA Roadside Assistance? Is it a case of you get what you pay for?

I recently renewed my Coach Net for $69, and I consider that money well spent. They will try to upsell you to a plan that does not offer all that much more than the basic plan, so you have to work at getting the $69 plan.

Was that the basic plan? I'm looking at the plan that includes tow vehicle coverage. For that, Coach Net's online renewal price that I see is $149/yr.

Yes, for $69 you get a basic plan, does not cover your tow vehicle. Like I said, they make it really difficult to find that cost plan. Call them if you really want it and cannot find it.

Check your auto insurance first. You may have towing coverage on the towed and not know it. I had it for a couple of years before I realized I had it. It was not an extra charge on mine so, I never noticed it. So the $69 deal may be enough.

Good thinking, Jim, but since I had Coach Net I opted out of adding tow coverage under the Jeep's insurance.

Unless I hear a good reason not to, I think I might give FMCA a try this year. It's something like $69/yr. (including the tow vehicle).
