I have towing service on each of my vehicles through my insurance company; State Farm. My son has used it when he hit some slush on the road and slid into the roadside ditch. He called a friend that runs a towing service, was put back on the road, and State Farm paid for the service. That is our only experience in 30 years (Touch Wood).

For example: Some ERS's have very small free towing limits and/or will only tow you to the nearest garage. With our AAA RV coverage in CA you get about 150-200 miles of towing to anywhere you want, and they will reimburse you if you are out of state and it exceeds local AAA coverage.

If your tow vehicle breaks down, they will tow both your tow vehicle and the trailer, even if it takes two tow trucks/roll-offs, to wherever you have to go within that range.

If your vehicle breaks down in your driveway they will tow you for repairs just as if it was a emergency breakdown.

And there is always all the other Perks of AAA membership, tour books, maps, DMV services and the battery replacement service, which I recently took advantage of myself.

Coverage's and fees will very from region to region, but that's about how the Northern & Southern California units work.
You brought up some very good points, Bob, so I called my carrier and asked about towing the trailer if the TV broke down. Yep, they said, they'd send out 2 tow vehicles. I don't have the "200 mile" tow radius, they'd tow to the closest repair facility and I would pay additional if I wanted to go further.

I've had this carrier for several years and made 3 ERS requests for motorcycles. Each was handled without delay.

Somewhat ironically, the premium for Motorcycle coverage is the same as for RV coverage. In fact you call the same 800 number for Motorcycle/RV Road Service...

I once had a Toyota motorhome towed from my house to the Transmission shop of my choice some 42 miles away, probably passed 50 others en route.
