    In a nutshell.....I purchased Premium plus and they wrote me what I would consider to be a nasty letter because I "used the service too much in too short of period of time!" Now I haven't used it in more than 3 months because I haven't needed to. There were just bad circumstances with my Class C where I needed to use the service three times in a 2 week time period. I'm asking myself, Isn't the whole reason for roadside service for your RV for peace of mind? I'm paying top dollar.

    We have had Good Sam Towing Service for years and it has paid for itself and given us peace of mind. That said, the reps are working off of paper road maps rather than computerized mapping systems so out here in the West, they often have a hard time locating where you are broken down. Giving them Lat and Longs does no good and Indian Lands are a real challenge - be patient.

    We bought Roadside Assistance for our 40' motor home because we were planning a trip from NC to Alaska. When we got to Denali, we discovered a small rock in a tire causing it to leak down. We called Good Sam and the operator apparently didn't know where we were. She tried to give us tire services in Fairbanks (over 100 miles) and Anchorage (250 miles). Also, she said they would not pay to repair a tire, only freight to ship us a new one. We went to the campground office to ask for help and were given the name of a tire service three miles away. He said he works with Good Sam and didn't understand why they didn't refer us to him. He said he patches tires on trucks and buses all the time and they don't give any trouble. He came out on Sunday and patched the tire. We footed the bill ourselves. It's still holding and giving no problems. On another occasion in North Carolina, Roadside Assistance tried to send us to an RV dealer when we needed a truck repair shop for a chassis problem. The operators at both places didn't seem to know anything about RV's or repairs--not very knowledgeable. Don't even try to get help on the Alaska Highway. Roadside Assistance is a good idea if it works and they do what they say they'll do. It would be good to know somebody has your back, but these people don't.

    Good Sam Got Me Out!

    I called Good Sam for towing assistance. They selected J & D Towing of Huntsville, TX to get my 24,000 lbs motorhome out of the mud in a field by my home. Bobby was there in under ten minutes from the call to assess the job, and then called his truck out to do the job. He showed complete care for my vehicle, even to the extent of cancelling the job if it caused damage to my vehicle in any way; that showed me he knew what he was doing. With patience and professionality his crew retrieved my motorhome out of the mire and I am now able to use it once again. Major kudos to Good Sam, Bobby Davis and his crew!

    Last summer my car broke down in a parking lot. Called Good Sam Roadside Assistance and the tow company took it to my personal mechanic. Yes, they ask lots of questions over the phone and you have to wait for a tow. I didn't pay one cent! I am definitely renewing!

    I had an accident last week. It was 6pm, dark and freezing in upstate NY because of extremely low temperatures. I called Good Sam Road Assistance. The operator was unfriendly, kept asking me irrelevant questions and her only objective was to see how she could avoid sending help. They never sent help. I explained the emergency. They never cared. She told me she would send a text message. She never did. Called an hour later to say they had reviewed the situation and would not come. All about legalities. It is a scam! Do not buy Good Sam Road Assistance.

    My entire story is too long to write, but after 3 unsuccessful tows this week, I've about had it with this company. Bottom line: they don't deliver as promised. They promise a service that they cannot deliver on. Blame the local tow companies for taking state police priorities over their own. Say the service won't cost you something one moment, and the next you're paying. I have such a sour taste in my mouth, and it takes a LOT for me to write something like this up. Please save yourselves the heartache and stay away.

    We finally used our Good Sam Roadside Service for the first time this last trip. We were in rural Illinois and stopped at a truck stop for fuel. My husband noticed smoke out of the rear wheel of our Freightliner M2 that pulls our 5th wheel. I called Good Sam Roadside Assistance and spoke with a helpful person who explained the cost for a technician to come to us to analyze the problem. We were told it would be approximately an hour for him to get to us but in less than 40 minutes a very pleasant man showed up who quickly discovered a cracked rotor when he removed the rear wheel. He explained what the parts would cost and the approximate time and final cost. We agreed to have him repair it. He made some calls to locate the parts and told us it would take a couple of hours as we were out in a rural area. He came back with the parts and went to work. We were very pleased with the service performed. The cost would have been comparable had we brought the truck to a repair facility. We can't say enough about how pleased we are to learn that something we have had for all these years we have been RV'ing, the Good Sam Roadside Assistance, was something we hoped we would never need, but once we finally did need it, exceeded our expectations.

    On Oct 5, 2014 we were on our way back to Texas from Colorado when we had a blowout on our 5th wheel. We were only about 5 miles out of Ft. Sumner, New Mexico. 45 minutes after calling Roadside Assistance they still had not found someone to come and change our tire. We found that out only by calling back. At this point my husband and another gentleman changed it themselves. This is not what we paid for.

    On our recent trip going to Yellowstone we had a flat tire on our travel trailer with the tire shredding apart. We were on Hwy 395, about 35 miles north of Reno, Nevada. I contacted Good Sam Road service to have someone come out and install our spare tire and I decided to stay on the line while a Customer Service rep located a company to come out. I explained we were not in a safe location due to narrow shoulder of the road. Our trailer was sticking out about 12 inches past the fog line into the traffic lane. I was on hold for about 10 minutes while he was trying to find a company to come out. He came back on and told me he was still trying to find a company to come out. I said I would hold online while he continued. After another 10 minutes went by and he came back on and said he finally found a company that would come out and it would be a minimum of 2 hours to get to us. The other companies he tried were giving a 3 hour minimum time to get to us. I agreed, but informed him again we were in a dangerous situation with trailer being in roadway. We called the Calif. Highway Patrol and explained our situation and requested an officer to respond since we were a hazard. CHP responded in about 10 minutes and informed us a tow service was located about 5 miles from where we were. I had CHP contact them and I cancelled the company that Good Sam had called. The new tow service responded to our location within 10 minutes and we were on our way within 30 minutes. The tow company that responded explained to us that Good Sam contracts with companies and pays less than half the normal going rate for roadside assistance and that is why it takes so long for response because of most companies do not support Good Sam.

    We experienced a battery failure on our motorhome about ten miles from the closest town. The young man who helped us was excellent, after several minutes he was able to locate a repair service and sent him to the rescue. The gentleman who came out to help us was knowledgeable and proficient. He had us on our way in less than thirty minutes. Thanks Good Sam!

    Terrible Experience $700 Bill with no Repair Made

    September 15, 2014
    Used this the Sunday before Labor Day. The company they sent billed me $700 and were only there about an hour and could not fix the problem. I have been trying to get an invoice for 3 weeks with no luck. I cannot get their address etc from Road Side and Camping World has also tried getting the invoice as the call would be covered under our warranty. They finally suggest that I file fraud complaint with the bank. Really they are the ones that supplied this company. Have to say - beyond frustrated and doubt I'll use the service again for anything more than a flat tire.

    Several years ago I had a very pleasant and professional experience with Good Sam. Yesterday (9-7-14) was horrible. Disabled only 35 miles from my home, Good Sam called a wrecker service 50 miles away. It took the wrecker service 3 hours to get to me and another 2 hours to begin the tow. Prior to this, when I finally did get to speak to a human after struggling through the ridiculous automated phone system, the person would not listen to my helpful suggestions for available capable service. No compassion at all.

    Thank You Good Sam for coming to our assistance in 10 minutes in Harris Co. when we locked our keys in our tow-truck. We felt foolish and so lucky at the same time that we had Good Sam Roadside Asst.

    We can borrow the old American Express Card slogan and apply it to Good Sam Roadside Assistance. I wouldn't pull out of the driveway without it. A few years ago, on our first motorhome trip to Florida, I had my driver side front tire blow on a busy 6-lane freeway in Illinois. I immediately pulled over to the shoulder, got out and put up our orange warning triangles, with 18 wheelers were roaring by me, at least one every 30 seconds. Thank God for the Good Sam Roadside Assistance, I dialed the 800 number and reported my situation to the operator. While we waited for help to arrive, I walked back down the highway and found my wheel cover about a block behind us. An hour later, the truck arrived, and our rescuer quickly installed the spare with the help of a compressor, hydraulic jack, and impact wrench. A couple of days later, I pulled into the Camping World in Knoxville, Tennessee, where the folks there were very happy to sell and install six new tires, keeping the best of the old ones for a spare.
