Good Sam and Allstate. (I know some people are saying ewwww Allstate?)

My policy covers the towing for my truck and my rig. They have to be seperated when towed and Allstate is the ONLY Ins. Co. that will do that. I had mechanical problems in the middle of NO-Where, along I-40 in New Mexico. Called Good Sam and they sent out a small 3/4 pick up with Billy Bob driving and he didnt know what to do, even tho the dispatcher explained in detail the job it entailed. He was mad cuz he wasnt gonna get paid for not being able to pull 9,000 lbs of truck and trailer.So I called AllState and they fully understood what I had and dispatched 2 trucks. One wheel lift truck and one 5th wheel hitched truck. Both drivers got there within an hr and were very professional and courtious, and got Both units towed to nearest town and close to an auto store for me to aquire the parts needed for my repairs. The nice thing about having an Rv during a breakdown is I cooked a nice lunch and watched some tv in the a/c, totally relaxed.

We carry both Good Sam and AAA for the Winnebago as if you are somewhere such as the PA Turnpike they are contracted with AAA and there are places Good Sam covers that AAA does not. Worth the investment, just make sure you buy a policy with AAA specifically for RV's. We got the preimer as it also has trip interuption insurance available to you if you are more than 100 miles away from home.

We did have our old class A towed. A 1980 26' dodge m400 for about fifteen miles to a gas station on the Jersey turnpike when we ran out of gas due to a bad gauge. This was around three in the morning and it cost us $300.00 about five or six years ago. We had triple A but found out that the policy we had didn't cover RVs. We never thought of that at the time we bought the camper. But we had been members for around ten years and they asked us to send them a copy of the towing bill and they reimbursed us anyway. After that we upgraded our membership to include RVs. After they paid for a tow that they didn't legally have to, we have sung their praises to anyone who is thinking of joining.

Best thing you'll ever do, towing insurance.  Best deal is usually to have it added to your existing auto policy. Be sure to read the fine print, i.e. towing distance since most won't work on rvs so you may be 75 miles up the Panhandle from an rv repair shop... like we were.  Good Sam Insurance is an option too.
