I prefer to self-insure for towing services, although the "peace-of-mind" value of having that phone number/quick rescue is different for everyone. For me the value doesn't pencil out. In 38 years of owning vechiles, new and used, I've never had a breakdown of significance on the road. When I take long trips I see thousands of vehicles and only a few apparently broken down, which reinforces my opinon that the odds of a breakdown are extremely small.

So I'll take the 38 years x $100 = $3,800 saved and motor on down the road and deal with whatever slings and arrows come my way as the come.

I used to have AAA when I traveled a lot in my job. There were some years when I had to use it a LOT (one year I had to be towed five different times). It was a great deal for me, then.

Right now, I need to compare the plans between AAA and Good Sam. The people I bought the Casita from used Good Sam.

For me, in a congested urban area, AAA RV service has gotten the job done.

The major incident I encountered was when the crankshaft bearing seized up on my 1991 Toyota Camry V6LE wagon while towing my Compact Junior trailer southbound on Interstate 5 (just south of the 405 junction). This was a Sunday afternoon on my way home from a trip to our Malibu Retreat. AAA found us an independant towing contractor who delivered the Compact Junior to the house in San Diego, and then the Camry to my mechanic's, and brought us home again, for $50 out-of-pocket (above the AAA payment to him); which I considered reasonable at the time.

A minor incident was when we had a spare trailer tire (again on the Compact Junior) changed out in Arizona on Interstate 8, half way between Yuma and Casa Grande.

Granted, I haven't strayed far from major highways in my travels. Like Patrick M., I have done relatively well so far.

I have noticed, that every purchase at Camping World generates a reminder mailer from Good Sam that I am not taking full advantage of their service.
